"What you see is what you get" All good! - Feb 4, 2020
We stayed here for 3 nights last weekend and first of all just want to say we couldn't fault it!A tiny bit of confusion in our arrival at night was soon sorted and were served the usual mint tea as all Morrocans do when welcoming yiu into their home.I asked for a good room away from it and with a view and were shown to a room on the roof area. Nice room but boy was it noisy! You could hear everything outside in the street ( Marrakech doesn't sleep) bin lorrys, voices, bikes the lot. Asked in the morning to change and this was done immediately.. no hassle!Our new room , 13 was perfect and very quiet. Breakfast is coffee and pastry and breads and yoghurt and served in the courtyard. All very good and sufficient.The Riad is located right next to the city wall and is absolutely perfect for walking into the centre for the souks etc.I would say the location is perfect for a visit. Hidden away but in an easy to find location. If I returned I would use again and would recommend to family and friends for a stay just on the location alone.Staff all very friendly, smiling and polite as all locals were actually!The Riad is clean, light and airey and has a huge roof terrace ideal for sunbathing after a day in the souks. We did lots and sitting up there watching the storks on their nests on the city walls was therapeutic and fun.All In all a lovely place with no hidden bits, what u see is what u get!Have a massage too, reasonable and 30 mins you won t regret. Marrakech does not disappoint and will leave you flabbergasted afterwards! Smells, sounds and sights galore and cheap cheap cheap. Love it!« less

Fabulous Riad - Jan 19, 2020
I found Riad Aladdin on AirBNB after a long search for a large Riad that can host over 30 people for a 60th Birthday party and what a great find it was. 17 rooms with private bathrooms, AMAZING staff and wonderful food. Riad Aladdin and it staff made our 4 day event in Marrakesh an experience we will never forget. Thank you so much, Francesco & Michael.« less

Very nice Riad in Medina - Jun 28, 2019
Very nice and clean Riad. There's a hammam and a lady can hook you up with a body scrub. Food is very good and rooms are quite cozy and clean. WiFi is quite stable and the staff is great and very helpful! We stayed for a week and nothing negative to be said. Great location to explore the Medina. 10' walk from Place Jemaa El Fna and the souks. Banks at 5' walk and many restaurants.« less

Past it’s best - Apr 25, 2019
Sadly this Riad is past its best and rooms are dark and don’t feel clean with greying towels and sheets, missing door and window bolts, etc. While we know Riads are old there is no excuse for not maintaining linen and furnishings, lighting, etc. We were Disappointed with our downstairs room that was small, a bit smelly, dark and noisy with people in reception just outside. Our travelling companions felt the same about their rooms. For some reason staff also felt it was Ok to crash around in the kitchen at 10.30pm. A promised change of rooms for our week long stay was not fulfilled and the regular absence of management or staff on reception to help was too frustrating. Despite discussions between staff and our local guide - the decision had to be taken to move to another Riad which was beautiful - where staff were always on hand and everything was working and clean. This Riad could be amazing - but it’s not well managed or maintained.« less

Perfect introduction to the real Marrakech! - Apr 6, 2019
We stayed at Riad Aladdin for 4 nights in March. It was our very first visit to Morocco so we did not know what to expect. When looking for a typical riad, we noticed the beautiful photos and the good reviews so we booked it. We also booked the airport transfer as, again, this was our first time in Morocco and we wanted for things to go as smoothly as possible. The staff who picked us up at the airport was incredibly friendly and chatty. On our way to the riad he introduced us to Marrakech (telling us about the new and old town, the Mosque, etc.). It was really nice and we felt really welcome. Upon arrival to the riad, the staff welcomed us, sat us down and showed us the most common sites in Marrakech on a map over a cup of mint tea. Rashid (do not remember the name now, unfortunately. So sorry! ) gave some tips and advice about the souks, restaurants, taxis, etc. We knew we we were in really good hands and should not worry about anything. Our room was on the first floor, very clean, authentic and with AC. Beautiful building and a small courtyard where we had delicious breakfast a couple of mornings.The staff were so friendly and attentive - even when we asked them to prepare breakfast for us half an hour before the normal time because we wanted to leave early that morning but ended up oversleeping . They were very understanding and just shook it off with a "It's fine, you are on holiday!". The location of the riad is also very central so you can get to the most common sites very quickly just by walking. A really good place to get introduced to Marrakech! The only thing that could be improved a little is the noise in the courtyard during the afternoons. We usually went out in the mornings and came back at 14:00/15:00 to relax for a couple of hours before heading out again. It was difficult to relax fully as the staff would have their breaks in the courtyard so we could hear everything. But all in all, a very pleasant stay and we would recommend it!« less
