WIFI ON BOARD
My daughter and I spent 3 very happy days at Riad Rafaele. The building and rooms are beautiful, a haven of peace in the heart of the Medina. The staff and owners are very kind and thoughtful and take a lot of trouble to make you feel welcome and relaxed. We didn’t have dinner but the breakfast was always good with plenty of choice (with different options each day) and presented beautifully. The Riad is very old and atmospheric, with stunning craftsmanship everywhere you look. We loved it.
Really beautiful and traditional place, like a large family home with a courtyard in the centre – complete with orange trees and a a small pool. Wife and I booked in for a few days to explore Marrakesh – what a crazy place, where you walk down narrow roads dodging people, bikes, motorbikes, handcarts and donkeys! Very friendly staff who arranged dinner for us at very short notice when we arrived the first evening. All in all, a really lovely and comfortable place to spend a short break.
Lovely Place in the heart of the Medina. we loved staying there. the people that run the riad are super nice and help out with any needs. it was a great and calm place to relax after the hektik times in the souks. it was very clean amd beautiful. would come again.
Wonderful place! This riad is lovely on every details. Everything is perfect and beautiful. The rooms, the courtyard, the terrasse… the staff was super friendly making me feel at home from the very first moment. The breakfasts were excellent, different everyday. The location is perfect to walk around in town. It was the perfect place to visit Marrakesh!
Superb Riad. Hakim, and the rest of the staff are very friendly, welcoming and nothing is too much trouble! We will return again the next time we are in Marrakech! Room is very charming, A/C in the room beautifully.
