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

Very helpful and accommodating staff, nice room layout that’s well maintained and the best part was the service and breakfast. They even remembered our order from yesterday and always with a smile. It’s our first Riad so we were impressed with the architecture and decoration. I’m sure, it’ll be very popular during the peak Seasons too, for its good location.« less

Great Riad - Sep 27, 2018
Recommended by an Australian acquaintance who lives in Morocco. Lovely Riad, excellent position for squares, souk, restaurants. Try Kosybar nearby if you want a glass of wine. Riad arranged airport transfers. Staff very attentive. Great breakfast. Highly recommended« less
