  • 8.0.Very good

    Good, but not very cheap.

    I was for the second time Marrakech, first time in Riad Africa. I was very much surprised, when I entered the room; it was depressingly small and had no mini bar and free bottle of water, as promised by publication. I came late on the evening, so I accepted it. The first good surprise next morning was Breakfast: the Continental Breakfast was actually the English one with everything and with fried eggs or omellettes. The juice and coffee were very good.I had - after Breakfast - the talk to Hotel Manager, Mr. Redone, who is wonderful person, very kind and a real proffessional, always prepared to help.He understood I couldn't stay in such small room and he upgraded me to the much better one, where I could really breathe. The room had small fridge, safe, tea/coffee facility and I also got the free water.So, because of Mr. Redone I really enjoyed my staying in Riad Africa. Each room has its name and mine was Okavango.The price, however, is not very low (about 57 euros, including good Breakfast and all taxes). I am staying again in Riad Africa, if I come back to Marrakech.This "if" is because of Marrakech traffic system. The narrow shoppong streets should be for pedestrians only, but there are so many motors, small cars and vehicles with different animals, that it is very dangerous for shoppers, as they are driving as if they are crazy, men, women,young and older ones.They have all priorities on these narrow streets and I've been hit by them several times.The air isbad.

  • 6.0.Good

    The service and location were fine. The visit was marred by heavy smoking in the central area that filled the adjacent rooms, my family members left their room to sleep elsewhere. I did not have this issue at the Riads we have stayed at.

    The riad is beautiful but my room was unexpected small. You basically open the door then jump onto thr bed. However, there is all you need.

    We had a great experience at Riad Africa. The room was great, but a little cold at night. Breakfast was good.

    A nice friendly and extremely well run Riad. Located 5 minutes walk from the main market. The Riad also offer personalised trips to the Atlas Mountains as well as other day trips which can be booked in advance. They also have a spa/hamman which is a must! They did every they could to look after us. Abdul on reception is an absolute asset. We will definitely go back.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    My experience with Riad Africa was simply amazing! The staff provided superb service--even going out of their way to prepare breakfast bags for the nine of us to takeaway early morning on our day trip to Casablanca/Rabat. They were also very friendly, genuine, and caring. The facility is a bit small, but a gem inside the gates of Medina. Water pressure esp. for shower was not that great, but workable. We also didn't have any issues with securing our valuables in the safe provided. All in all, I would definitely stay at Riad Africa again and highly recommend it for your trip. Thank you Riad Africa!

  • 8.0.Very good

    Het is schoon en goed en ligt net achter de drukke straatjes dus alle interessante plekjes op loop afstand De kamers zijn wel vrij klein en een beetje gehorig. Maar als je de drukte van de medina dicht bij wil hebben dan ligt het perfect.
