Short break to Marrakech

This was just a short three day break to somewhere totally different. It lived up to our expectations. All travel and pick up arrangements were first class. Hotel description and information was absolutely accurate. See more

A stay in a typical Ryad

This was our first experience of staying in a typical Ryad, and we feel that we made the best of choices! Monsieur Adil and Madame Naimah, and ALL their Staff did everything they could to make our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Their friendliness, warmth and hospitality was lovely, with a comfortable room, and good shower. The interior decor is rich and delightful, with a water feature, and a multitude of beautiful flowering plants in ceramic pots which affords a very relaxing atmosphere. We had a different Continental Breakfast every day, with local dishes such as pancakes with honey, cake, pastries with sesame seeds. (Very bad for the waistline, but truly delicious!0 Dinner, again, was authentic Moroccan food, beautifully cooked and presented. Naimah organised 3 local trips for us, and on every occasion the Guides were friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable. Our day in the Atlas Mountains has to be the highlight! We would highly recommend this Ryad, and we plan to make a return visit. Collapse
A pleasant home away from home

Adil and his staff treat you like family and are very friendly. The hotel kindly picked me up at the airport. I recommend arranging this by email before your arrival (much easier than a taxi). Upon your arrival at the hotel you will be welcomed with some fabulous mint tea. The hotel is very clean and quiet. I stayed in a second floor room. All rooms face onto a very nice inner court yard. The hotel is fabulous as it is small you have the opportunity to meet other guests at the free breakfast every morning. The hotel WIFI works really well. I had the pleasure of taking a sightseeing tour with the hotel and leaned a lot about Morocco. The hotel is an oasis of tranquility in the midst of the old city and has a gorgeous roof top deck (see picture). I will stay at the Ryad Amiran again and would happily recommend the Ryad Amieran to others. Thanks for the great stay! Collapse

We spent fantastic few days. I came with my wife and my disabled adult son. Even my son was very happy as he was made to feel very welcome by the whole staff specially Adil. The day trips which were organised by Ryad Amiran were very good as well.

I believe in leaving an honest review and will write nothing but honest facts and mainly helpful advice for others. My other half booked this holiday for me for my birthday, I didn't really enjoy it much in Marrakech as I found it very stressful however I appreciated visiting, experiencing the culture and some sightseeing. TOP TIP! If you have your phone in Airplane mode (like we did), download the Google maps app and locate on the map all of the sight seeing destinations whilst on the Hotel WiFi and each destination you click on/find theres an option to save them - it will show up as a star on the map. Google Maps uses GPS (satellite signal) so you can direct yourself anywhere and see yourself as a blue dot live when walking around - this helped not only with direction for ourselves, but most importantly when you could catch a taxi driver driving the complete wrong way! We received a very warm welcome from Nayima with recommendations on where to visit accompanied by lovely home made mint tea. Area: 10-15min drive from the Airport - PLEASE NOTE - If you do not book directly with the hotel you are not entitled to the free dinners/transfers that other reviewers have reported as false advertisement. We booked through an agency so found out directly from the hotel we were not entitled to this. Agency booking websites say you get this for free - you don't. 1min walk from the taxi rank to the hotel maybe less, you take the first right then first left (same directions when coming out of the hotel). Most of the taxi drivers we found to be extremely rude (only when dropping you off or when it comes to paying) and overcharge for everything - do not need to pay anything more than 30 dirhams to go to the main square or new city. A lot of them do not know their own city and when you show them on a map, with the names of the places they understand - they either take you the complete wrong direction or drive past it on purpose to charge more even though you agreed on a set price for that destination. We took a lot of taxis and only had 1 or 2 polite, good taxi drivers. (None of our taxi drivers spoke much English so this experience is not based on that, purely on awareness of city navigation knowledge/courtesy). There are a lot of locals that say hello and want to show you around (for money of course) however they are respectable when you politely decline at first point of contact, the moment you ask for help/let them direct you of any sort then yes you probably will get hassled so expect this. We had someone walk with us in the medina souks (not the main square) without us consenting or asking him to and he hassled us to the point we thought we were going to get robbed. Beware of some people as on one of our last days a local asked us randomly if we were going to Jardin Majorelle YSL Gardens (not sure how he knew we were going there) and told us it was closed that day and that he could show us somewhere else - We found out later that it wasn't closed and is open everyday so he was trying to trick us in going somewhere else with him - we wasted a whole day when we could have gone there :-( nether the less we went there on our last day. Staff: Staff are extremely lovely and polite, cannot fault them one bit. I was quite upset as I came back one evening to find out that my birthday cake I bought from an expensive cake shop that cost me 380 dirhams (~£35-38) was given to another couple to eat on their arrival. I only had 1 slice and so did my other half and it was in the fridge for 1 day and the whole cake was eaten by someone else (The owner had put it in the kitchen fridge and assured me no one would touch it, he knew this was my birthday cake and told me he would tell others). Unfortunately there was a misunderstanding and one of the cooks had given it to another couple by mistake as she didn't speak English and accidentally gave them my birthday cake when they asked to try some traditional moroccan cake. The night worker Abdul was extremely empathetic when he discovered what had happened, I was in tears and as sad as it sounds I had a stressful day - all I wanted was my birthday cake!, he ran out straight away to buy me another cake from somewhere else, which was very kind of him. The following day I received an apology and we were moved rooms as a good will gesture. At all times the staff were polite, friendly, courteous and always smiling. Rooms: There is a fridge in the room, You just have to plug it in, we used it to keep our bottled water. The room we stayed in for 6 nights was called Rubis, it was very noisy at night as the rooms Rubis and Pearle are on the street side, so you are awoken by shouting/motorcycles/horns constantly throughout the night and morning. This cannot be helped by the hotel but useful to know. We were moved to the Saphir room on our last night which I preferred, there is no window to the outside of the hotel so it was extremely quiet and overall a larger, brighter room. We personally found the Rubis room quite depressing. The showers in both rooms were big but agree the drainage system is slow and water piles up easily. The shower gel & shampoo smell amazing - great touch! If you run out of toilet roll just pop downstairs to the lobby and ask. The toilet roll holders in both rooms were slanted so as soon as you roll some off the whole roll falls on the floor, so needs fixing. From my experience the towels during our stay in the Rubis room for 6 nights were not changed.. They appeared to be the same towels every day and I noticed this several times as the towels were quite damp the following days after the room was cleaned. Excursions: I will be honest.. the excursions were extremely pricey. €145 for Essouira and €155 for Atlas Mountains. Atlas mountains I enjoyed climbing up to see the Ourika waterfalls (you will have to pay someone separate to take you up, trust me you need it) however I didn't really enjoy Essouira. I booked with the hotel as I preferred to be safe and know I would have a smooth journey to and from the door but after visiting I didn't believe the prices were reasonable. The driver for both of our excursions was amazing, I couldn't praise him enough and we really enjoyed spending time with him. Breakfast: Breakfast was the same every morning but we didn't mind, we were served moroccan pancakes with a tasty syrup, we loved it! We had this with a very tasty smooth tropical/orange juice. We found this breakfast perfect as it gave us energy for the day. I will say we never ate the bread as it was stale bread but toasted so you woudn't be able to tell unless you know your food - we tried it several times and it was stale every time. We didn't eat dinner at the hotel, but food prices outside are similar to London UK (maybe a little bit cheaper), be careful where you eat.. only eat where there are loads of locals eating and it looks representable. We frequently ate at a new and modern restaurant "L'Adresse" in the new city Gueliz, which had amazing food, calm settings and had WiFi. WiFi in the hotel was useful however not fast so only useful for messaging/very limited browsing. We were asked to pay by cash for the city tax and excursions at the end of our stay however they accepted me paying by card, only Nayima knows how to operate the card machine, so we were lucky. We were issued an itemised invoice as well as card payment receipt. (Only mentioning this as other reviewers reported bad experiences). As soon as you land at the airport the government want to know your name, passport number, occupation and hotel address - you have to fill out a piece of paper before passport control - same when departing, only they want to know your home address too. Sorry for the essay - Hope it helps others! ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Overall the price we paid was decent for the hotel, it was great to experience staying in the old city. The staff were truly lovely people. Minor improvements needed and a price re-evalutation of their excursions and it would be perfect. Collapse

I visited this hotel in September 2016. I did not like the hotel location as it is in very narrow street and I could not find it easily. The hygiene standard is so so. Rats can be seen often. Breakfast food is ok. Its is far from Jama Al fana roughly 30 min walk. The local residents make so much noise. Drainage system of hotel is poor. water is not warm. Manager Nyma of this hotel is very unwelcoming. I had terrible experience of seeing rats in this hotel. Collapse
