"CERTIFICATE OF EXCELLENCE 2013" awarded by tripadvisor. Riad Ajmal - an oasis of tranquility in the very heart of the buzzing city. We are here to do all we can to make sure you enjoy an excellent stay. Located in one of the most pleasant neighborhoods in the Medina of Marrakech, in Bab Doukkala, the riad (traditional Moroccan home) is particularly well situated, within close distance of the Pacha Palace, the road of the antiquaries, and only a few minutes walk from the traditional market and the Jemma-el-Fna Square. Once the home of nobles, the riad has been entirely renovated in 2006, in the spirit of its rich tradition. Starting at the ground floor, you are led into a large area, which serves as drawing room, dining room and a TV-DVD corner. It opens up to the large patio and its ornamental pool. Books, internet (ADSL, WiFi) and other office needs are at your disposition.The rooms are situated upstairs where it is quieter. Two different stair cases lead to the patio.You can enjoy both sun and shade on the riads terrace. With its solarium and hammam, it is the perfect place for leisure activities. You can relax while enjoying a lovely drink or your breakfast.

Riad Ajmal Rooms

In this cheerful yellow room, with its own entrance area, the window opens up to a "derb" which is a quiet little street. It is spacious with a double bed and a large bathroom. This room is slightly removed from the rest of the riad.
The Manar room is situated directly in front of the Joumana room, on the other side of the patio. This room also has a high ceiling from which stunning copper chandeliers extend. You will also find a small lounge area and a desk. Its beautiful bathroom is covered with peaceful beige tadelakt.
This large room with a king size bed has a view leading directly to the patio. It has a high and impressive ceiling made of cedar wood. You will find a desk as well as a small lounge area. Its bathroom is covered with a red-rose tadelakt.
Spacious and covered with traditional grey tadelakt, with a double bed and a couch bed for a possible third person, this beautiful room also disposes of a desk and a small lounge area. Decorated glass windows provide great luminosity in winter and a softer lighting in the summer. In the bathroom you will find a shower stall covered by a skydome letting in the light, which reflects and shines against its walls covered with grey charcoal tadelakt.
Converted into a lovely suite, this "douiria" has its own little living room with two windows which open directly on to the patio, a peaceful little haven for resting or enjoying a good book on a sofa (which also turns into a bed if needed). A small dressing area precedes the room where you will find a double bed with a gorgeous headboard in cedar wood. A sky window provides great light over the room's bureau.

peace and tranquility

This is a lovely riad, staffed by friendly people. The atmosphere is relaxed and you feel you can make yourself at home. The owner, [...] and her staff, [...] and [...] were always helpful, smiling and nothing was too much trouble.Air-conditioning in the rooms was a must for us, travelling in August, and the small pool was great to cool down. The riad is quiet and as there are only 5 or 6 rooms, never too crowded. Great roof terrace, comfortable sunbeds and a delicious breakfast. A lovely place to stay and I would do so again.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

About 15 mins walk from Jmaa al Fna where all the action is, especially at night. An amazing place. South of the square also within walking distance - some lovely narrow streets, cafes and market stalls.Great restaurants everywhere but in the main square beware the extras added on before you order.
