Best stay we have ever had - Jan 19, 2020
This riad is the perfect way to escape the chaos of Marrakech. It's cosy and quiet while you can rest from your busy day. The host is a kind, hardworking man. He speaks 6 languages, even a little a bit dutch. He does his best for you to achieve the best visit possible. He made our stay perfect! The rooms are very clean and beautiful (they clean the rooms everyday). The riad is located in the old city near one of the most important mosques and tombes. It's possible to have a really nice dinner at the riad if you give them a heads up in advance (they even serve alcohol). 10/10 would recommend staying at this riad, You won't regret it!Contact k, Directeur général at Riad el Noujoum, responded to this review we thank you very much for your kind opinion and we wish to welcome you during a next stay « less ...

Great riad; slightly off the beaten track - May 26, 2019
The Riad was pretty much the perfect find for us, a group of four friends who wanted a short break in Marrakech to soak up the atmosphere and sample plenty of food. It only has a handful of rooms, and we had three of the suites on the first floor. All were stunning rooms, beautifully preserved and full of interesting features. One had a gorgeous four poster bed, whilst another had marble double sinks and a bath. All of the rooms we stayed in had beautiful bathrooms, with deep and luxurious feeling baths. The only problem was they took a long time to fill as they were so big!The rooms, all facing onto the central courtyard, were all really spacious and with plenty of room to relax, with sofas and cushions, and to unpack clothes and belongings. Each had heavy wood shutters which made the rooms both dark and quiet at night.The Riad itself is, like the interior of the rooms, gorgeously preserved, and completely Moroccan in decor and ambience. The small pool is at the centre of the Riad and provides a lovely focal point, the water is cold but ideal to cool off after a hot day wandering the city streets. There’s also a tv room and a breakfast room if you prefer to be inside. The roof terrace is a real sun trap and has loungers, tables and chairs and a covered area when the sun gets a bit too hot. It also has lovely views towards the Atlas Mountains and over the nearby Kasbah Mosque and the famous Koutoubia.But what really makes the Riad fantastic is the staff. From the moment we arrived and were served mint tea next to the pool, we were told that the property should feel like home. And it really did. Khalid, who is the main front of house man, looked after us perfectly. He is the sort of front of house man you want - there whenever you need him, and always able to help out, whether it was printing our boarding passes or advising us on costs of cabs to the new town. The ladies who also work in the Riad, both as manager, and in the kitchen and cleaning the rooms, are so friendly and warm, the Riad really did feel like home.Breakfast is simple but tasty. Bread, jam, a different cake every day and either Moroccan pancakes or muffin-type delicacies. And of course, as much mint tea or Moroccan coffee as you like. The Riad also operates a small bar so we were able to have a beer in the evenings after a day of sightseeing whilst sitting by the pool which was a welcome addition.In terms of location, we loved it, but if you don’t want to walk or you don’t want to stay in a less touristy area, it might not be for you. The neighbourhood is the kasbah, and the kasbah mosque and famous Saadian Tombs are five minutes away. It’s also an easy walk to the Place des Ferblantiers and El Badi Palace. The Djeema al Fna is further away but easily walkable. We did it every day. It took us between 20 and 25 minutes to walk to the square, and from there, into the souks or to the Koutoubia. We walked back from Marjorelle Gardens one day, which is about 5km away but was a really pleasant walk. We really liked where the Riad was located as it gave us chance to see a different side of marrakech, away from the more touristy areas. It’s still well in the medina, and is hidden down a couple of streets not accessible by car.I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the Riad. It was everything we wanted from our marrakech adventure, and more besides.« less ...
