Fabulous 8.6 From 75 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
We stayed at the Riad Elias for 4 nights. Said the owner is most possibly the nicest man in Marrakech. He was extremely helpful and amenable throughout our entire stay. We also recommend taking up the offer of an evening meal at the riad, the home cooked tagine was delicious. A short walk to the Medina and main square, the riad is ideally situated for exploring the city on foot. A lovely and hospitable authentic riad experience. A wonderful first experience in Marrakech!

Great shirt stay
Lovely riad close to the Médina. The staff was wonderful and very helpful with recommendations. The hotel is surprisingly quite for being so close to the market and was very clean. The beds are pretty firm, but that is standard for Morocco. The breakfast was also delicious. We had a very short stay and it was just what we needed for the night.

Fair 4.0
The owner (Saeed) is funny and helpful but on the arrival. There is not 24/7 reception. We checked out at 7:15 am and he wasnt at Riad, we saw him on the way out so no breakfast! The pool was closed and we couldnt get up on the roof! Stain on the bath and Pros: Good breakfast, nice staff

I Lovveeee ZAID, he made my stay so wonderful and answered every question and is very close to the plaza and is safe and you can go into the medina yourself. His RIAD is in a good place and overall great service and room was great too.

We had a fantastic stay at Riad Elias! Sayid was an amazing host who would get us fresh pastries and pancakes from the market every morning and have breakfast prepared for us at whatever time we wanted. The Riad itself is very pretty and in walking distance from the main square and souk. I would highly recommend this Riad. Great for kids too.

Attention to detail with wonderful hospitality
The riad is exceptionally well put together. A real respite from the Marrakech chaos. Saiid is a great host brimming with energy and puts in a lot of extra effort to make your stay a special one.

Syed is an excellent host, he couldn't do more for us. He organised our transfer to the airport, allowing us to avoid the hostile haggling we experienced on getting from the airport to the riad. He provided breakfast at whatever time we wished to have it.

Poor 2.0
To be honest we would struggle to say anything good about this property.Certainly not for the fainthearted!!! I realize that it's meant to be a 'traditional' accommodation but this is taking it too far. Believe me, it looks nothing like the photos! Unfortunately, it rained a lot when we were there but there is nothing to do in the Riad, they only offer one evening meal which you have to book at breakfast, same menu every night consisting of soup, chicken or lamb couscous. You cannot get drinks or snacks unless you want to risk your life and fight your way through the souk. They advertise a roof terrace but trust me its not a nice place to spend your time. I certainly couldn't recommend this to anyone especially if you are elderly or have children. The bathroom is dangerous and rather than a stone shower tray which is stained and slimy and the brass wash basin surrounded by dirty stone tiles, it should have a porcelain tray with a handle to grab when getting in and out. It cant be easy to clean and is totally unhygienic We didn't even see the steam room as advertised and the 'pool' is not what anyone could call a pool!! Oh, and beware of paying cash at the Riad as the manager will only accept cash for any extras...wonder why ?

The property was difficult to find in the beginning. A lovely old house with a fountain pool in the middle, next to a large palm tree. 10 Minutes walk to the main square. Room amenities could be better. Missed having a tea/coffee maker in the room as well as a TV. Good and helpful host..A rather small bed (length). Nice continental breakfast with freshly squeezed orange juice. Overall a good stay...
