Lovely 2 nights away

Would recommend Fri, Jan 22, 2016
Hosts were approachable and very friendly. Just what we wanted from our stay - booked last minute so didn't know what to expect. The Riyad is gorgeous with a lovely roof top area. Spacious room and good location.

Tranquility

Would recommend Sat, Dec 5, 2015
On going up the dull passageway to the riad we were wondering what on earth we had booked! But once the door was open it was a complete transformation of calm and tranquillity. Totally Moroccan feel and greeted by Mustapha who served us Moroccan mint tea. Loved our room and the food was awesome. We were close to the souks and not too far from the madina square or the Tanneries. Marrakech is a crazy place but it was always nice to get back to the calmness of the riad. We done lots of walking that week as well as visiting the waterfalls and going to atlas mountains.Would definitely recommend and would definitely stay again.

Beautiful beyond words…

Would recommend Fri, Apr 17, 2015
I wasn’t sure what to expect before arriving even though it had very good reviews but this Riad turned out to be a beautiful gem that really made our trip extra special. Very pretty, peaceful and tranquil in the middle of a lively area and within walking distance to most attractions. The room we were in was lovely and spacious and the whole riad is cosy and very clean-it was sometimes hard to leave the roof terrace (and its wonderful views) and go out and explore Marrakech ) The staff (Mustafa and Ishraq) were warm, super lovely and helpful with absolutely EVERYTHING. Breakfast was always delicious and we had a wonderful dinner there for our last evening- I am vegan but had no problem with meals at all. I will definitely be coming back to this beautiful place…Thank you Mustafa and Ishraq for making our stay super special….

An oasis of tranquility in a hectic city

Would recommend Tue, Sep 2, 2014
Absolutely loved the Riad and the owners made us feel very welcome and at home! You have everything you need for a good holiday.... Including a nice terasse to glaze at stars at night. The Riad is very cozy and nicely decorated, with lots of traditional / old features. The room A/C was a great relief after a long day in the streets at 43 degrees :)! Absolutely recomended and we will definetely visit again!

Traditional Riad

Would recommend Thu, Jan 23, 2014
Riad Ajmal was a pleasant surprise. It only has 6 rooms so it is very small They are spacious and traditionally decorated. As we went in January it was a bit cold and rainy but the owner put the portable heaters on in the breakfast room and the air con unit was used as heater. It is basic but clean and staff are helpful. Just watch for the touristic tax you need to pay before you leave and there was a bit of confusion on the final bill as exchange was done mainly in Euros. Location is great as far enough from the center and close enough to get walk to museums and 15min from the square via the main street.

Disappointed

Would not recommend Mon, Nov 25, 2013
Very basic room and amenities. Not what we expected. Food good but dull. Staff at riad first rate - could not have been more pleasant or helpful. Email communication very poor. Having booked a driver to meet us at the airport he was not there when we arrived. He appeared just as we were about to find a taxi. We were ill-informed about the car dropping point. It was not possible for a car to drive right up to the riad. A 300 yard walk was needed. We enquired whether the riad had a swimming pool. We were told it had. It was ten foot square, 2 foot deep - in the foyer! We had a superb trip with you to Venice in January. This trip measured up very poorly. We will be very careful about any future such offers.

Entertainment hint

Eat out! Dar Moha; Le Jardin;Villa Flore. Le Dejeuner à Marrakech excellent but no alcohol. Grand Hotel Tazi. Visit Jardin Majorelle.

A short retreat paradise

Would recommend Fri, Apr 26, 2013
Great location, just inside of the old town walls. The staff couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating, nothing was too much. The manager even came himself to meet us at the bus stop on our arrival (we caught a bus form the airport- no.19- don't bother with taxis!) and walked us back to the Raid, we would not have found it on our own! We arrived late at night when many of the streets around the Souks (markets) are closed and only large streets are named. It is just far enough from the bustling Souks that when you are inside the Riad, (Riad meaning large house) you are in your own relaxing haven. It is definitely better to stay at a Riad for the traditional experience as opposed to a hotel. Beautifully decorated and very clean, Riad Ajmal has all you need for pure relaxation and luxury after long walks around town in the hot sun. It is also very secure, the rooms have a safe. The terrace is nicely shaded in places, with lots of comfy sofas and great views. There are only 5 rooms, so plenty of space if all guests were there at the same time (however this was never the case for us, we had the whole floor to our-selves for most of the trip). In the evenings, after we had been out for dinner and enjoyed the festivities in the square, we sat up on the terrace with a bottle of wine that we bought from Riad Ajmal- they have a good selection of white, rose and red. The red was a very nice full bodied and fruity Moroccan wine. It is worth noting that the pool is more of an ornamental pool...we used it to cool our feet when we had been out walking. Up on the terrace, there is a shower room. The food is delicious and generous portions. Breakfast was a very nice selection of traditional breads, yoghurt, freshly squeezed orange juice, tea, coffee, and homemade pancake. There were also jams and a marmalade made from the oranges growing in the trees in the courtyard! On arrival we were also welcomed with a traditional Moroccan tea (made with real green tea and mint leaves, with some sugar). Would definitely recommend eating lunch or dinner at the Raid Ajmal. We asked for this a day in advance for lunch and had a choice of anything we wanted! In the end, one of the ladies prepared a delicious Moroccan meal- beef with vegetables and couscous followed by fruit salad. on our last day for lunch. It was the best meal of our whole trip!

Money saver

The manager is very friendly and helpful, do ask questions when you first arrive- he gave us lots of useful tips (such as telling us that the prices in the Souks are inflated up to 300% so barter and never pay full price!) and marked out on a map the best attractions to see and places to eat. La Terrasse d'espices is a funky restaurant/bar with good food- but quite pricy. For a traditional meal of good value, try Riad Omar on one of the main roads off the main square. Definitely take the time to walk to le Jardin Majorelle- the most beautiful garden you will see.
