    The Riad is beautiful and spotlessly clean. The staff is very nice and efficient, catering for every wish and willingly providing useful info and tips regarding the visit to Marrakech. It is just a 10 min simple walk to Jema el Fna and yet the riad is an oasis of quietness and relaxed atmosphere. Right next to the riad there is a fantastic and fancy Haman, wish is also highly recommended. Therefore, great location, great chioce. I certainly recommend it without any reservation.

  • Older travelers

    Malika, the manageress (owner?), was very friendly and went out of her way to tell us about the city and surrounding areas. Felt comfy and safe throughout. All of the rid is very tastefully designed...just like you'd imagine a place out of 1001 nights.

    Actually, everything was perfect. By the way, the pancakes at breakfast were simply delicious!

  • Couple

    Great location, 10 minutes to the main square. Very clean, nice staff and good breakfast.

    It was difficult to find, since walking through the medina is like entering a maze, but the hotel near to the city center and most of the tourist attractions.

    Hotel staff, problems with rooms, poor breakfast.

  • Group of friends

    The breakfast was amazing, traditional dishes and can be eaten in the terrace, a beautiful place with great architecture. The lady who runs the hotel is very receptive and tries her best to speak English and help the guests with suggestions of which places to visit. It is located a 15min walk to the main square and very close to an amazing hammam, surely a must go place in Marrakesh. Riad Sesame is very small and traditional, nice to get a feeling of the Moroccan culture.

    We had reserved especifically Camelia Suite, with 2 beds (twin room). We were given a double room and had to share the bed, and didn't have the possibility of changing into the suite we had initially reserved for the first 2 nights. The Riad is in a little alley, seemed a bit dangerous at night, but I guess that is what most Riads in the Medina are like.

  • Couple

    The breakfast was amazing, with a really good service and typical food of the city. Next to the hotel is a really nice and traditional spa.

    Was a little difficult to get there, because is in a little street.

  • Couple

    1.Friendly riad manager 2.Beutiful riad and room interior 3.Good breakfast 4. Easy to find and close to Jamaa-el-Fnaa Sq. (10 min on foot)

  • Group of friends

    The best choice in Marracesh! It was our second time in Marracesh and we decided to spent 2 days at this Riad. Great rooms and great hosts, the 2 ladies we would never forget, made us feel like home. Breakfast was delicious and nothing was too much trouble to Malika. However the main square was near, the Riad lies in a quiet place which gives us a good night sleep. The rooms were authentically Moroccan and spotlessly clean. The great hamam&spa is almost next door in same street, where you can relax all day!

  • Group of friends

    We loved staying in this cosy and extremely clean Riad with tasteful decoration and friendly staff. The breakfast served in the terrace is a must!

  • Single
