I booked this great Ria for my fiance's 30 birthday on January. I followed the recommendations as there are plenty riads in the area and I'm glad I did! In all the hustle and bustle of the Medina, Riad Lhena benefits from a prime location, 2 minutes walk to the popular Big Square and still settled in a perfect tranquil back street where nothing will disturb your stay. It is a bit tricky to get there but nothing that a good google maps can't fix. [Tip: the street looks like an alley way, just follow that till the end and turn right. Do not let people around to show you how to get there as they will charge you!]
Rooms are lovely and spacious with colourful Moroccan decor. There was a refreshing mint tea and cookies waiting for us on our arrival. Bed was very comfortable and breakfast was filling and tasty!!
Definitely recommended, it's a fantastic place with helpful and nice staff and also the terrace has a great view! Enjoy it!

Unfortunately we could only stay one (short) night in this riad, but the owner took very good care of us. The room was nice, the terrace is beautiful and the owner helped us print our boarding passes and arrange a taxi at 4am! Would like to stay here longer!

I was very happy with our stay in Riad Lhena as it is truly lovely. Both Hassan and Yacine were always around to make our stay comfortable. The riad is small, and elegantly styled. The pickup from the airport all the way to the door of the riad amidst the labyrinthine medina is much appreciated, and during our stay, included in the charges along with their very nice breakfast. Breakfast includes bread made by Yacine. I would only like to suggest to improve it by serving fresh orange juice, please, instead of instant Minute Maid--as everyone knows, fresh orange juices are abundant and to-die for in Morocco. I also very much appreciate the dinner offered by the riad, as the chicken with lemons are so good, we can taste that it was lovingly cooked (by Yacine I learned later on). Since we stayed at the beginning of winter, I wondered if it would be a good idea to install some small heaters in the room, especially in the ground floor which retains the chill. Or at least, fire up the fireplace at night. All in all, a wonderful stay, a great base to explore Marrakesh. For this time, I came for work during the big climate change conference, and still was happy that I stayed here. The wifi was also reliable! And the sunroof was much appreciated and beautiful to read and soak in the sun.

Riad Lhena consists of about half a dozen rooms. Pleasant helpful staff, comfy beds, reasonable plumbing and plenty of power points (although we could have done with a kettle!). 24 hour "reception", who will book taxis for you and make a drink for you in the small hours. The breakfast is a bit carb-heavy consisting of bread, preserves, cheese spread, pancakes and tea/coffee. Its's close to the souks and you have to go down a couple of narrow alleys to get there - mopeds all over the place also go down the alleys! It's about a 15 minute fast walk through the market square to get to the main road for a taxi which was the only real minus of this riad as I wouldn't have minded staying longer there, very peaceful. If I came back to Marrakech I would consider Riad Lhena again.

Had a lovely time staying at the Riad Lhena. Slightly disappointed at the outset as the plunge pool was not in action during our stay 22-29 September. If we had known this we would have stayed elsewhere as we needed a dip after a morning in the souks. We remedied this by visiting the local water park twice, and this added more cost to our trip. Despite this slight disappointment however, the riad is still by far good value for money and has pretty, authentic, touches and surroundings. As other people have written, perfectly situated in the heart of the medina, but amazingly you can't hear the hustle and bustle of the city from inside. The hosts were hospitable. Breakfast had the lovely touch of something new on offer each day. Downsides would be that aircon was limited to 18 degrees therefore at times we were too hot. Also be prepared for an intimate stay as the walls are incredibly thin between rooms. Unfortunately we were placed on the ground floor and were woken up at times due to noise. It would be perfect for a group of friends or a family to hire out the whole Riad or for those who are heavy sleepers. The bed was very comfy, good quality covers. Toiletries were provided. Shower was adequate. Bedding and towels were changed when asked. Floor was not cleaned throughout our stay. Our bedroom light was broken which meant our room was quite dim. The rooftop terrace was stunning and a lovely place to rest and chill out after a hectic day. Overall we were happy with our stay and very happy to have ventured to a more authentic and different experience than a typical hotel.
