An Oasis of Tranquility in a city of organised bedlum!!

The Riad is well isolated from all the traffic noise being down a maze of several unmade alleyways. roof top is ideal for sun bathing though the view over the wall of rooftops and hundreds of satellite dishes (& a nearby rubbish tip) are uninspiring. Return shuttle (20 euros) for airport is a worthwhile option as the owner meets & guides you to the Riad (otherwise it's almost impossible to find!).Stayed a week on B & B basis, breakfast limited to orange Juice, a plate of sliced banana,apple & strawberries then a muffin,pancake and cake jams/honey with mint tea or coffee. Evening meals can be arranged at an additional 15 euros and were good. Staff very pleasant and very helpful but appear to have only taken over from previous owners 4 months ago at time of writing, There appear to be some slippage in standards based against previous reviews, the tiled floors were looking a bit tired and mucky. Be aware that there is an additional Municipal tax of 2.5 euros per person per day to be paid at the end of your stay Wardrobe & clothes storage space was minimal in the room with a deficiency of coat hangars, perhaps this is allied to it being a short stay destination. The trip itinary provided by the Riad was ideal with the owner taking you out to meet a lift to the minibus pick up point, the Ouzoud falls trip is a must do, the Ourika valley less so. Overall an enjoyable cultural experience which now done we don't intend repeating! Good luck!!

The Casa Saada in the Kasbhah and Les Premices in the main square were very good for food.

what a treat.

dont let the outside view or the way to the riad put you off guys. It is such a hidden gem that I actually wished I could have stayed a little longer. Staff were all family of one running the riad, and they do indeed treat their customers as if we were their own house guests from faraway. All attentive and well thought out. Breakfast simple but delicious. Room was immaculately clean and cleaned on a daily basis. Very good stay.

Would definitely stay here again

The owner is very helpful, the staff are all really lovely. The location is good, not too noisy unlike very central Riads as long as you don't mind a 10/15 minute walk to the main activity, although there is a square nearby where you can have lunch and it's also very near the Mela (spice markets etc) The Riad itself is lovely, the breakfast nice and the staff being lovely all make for a very decent riad choice indeed. Take advantage of their airport transfers, not expensive and much easier than trying to negotiate your own way there!

Authentic Morrocan Experience

The staff at Riad Shaloma couldn't have been more helpful. They arranged for a driver to collect us from the airport for 10Euros and then a member of staff came to meet us from the car. We had dinner on our first night at the Riad - a lovely 3 course meal for 15Euros each. The Riad is in a residential area, set back from the main road and signs have been put up to help visitors find it through the back streets. This was really helpful and we didn't get lost once. Inside, the Riad is beautifully kept. It has a central courtyard area inside where breakfast is served and all the rooms look out over this. My tip would be to request a room on the first floor. Ours was on the ground floor, which meant our window was at the same level as the dining area. The Riad is really close to the old palace and Saadian Tombs and is around a 20-25 minute walk into the main square. It is in a residential area, offering a more authentic experience of daily life in the city. It'sa bit daunting when you first walk the route, but we found our way easily enough, hotel staff will give directions - and we always felt very safe and enjoyed getting in amongst the people and culture. The Riad offers a range of trips. We did two day trips - one to the Atlas Mountains and one to the seaside town Essaouria. One final tip - a little bit of French would be helpful! Several staff speak English very well, but they weren't always at reception. If you don't know much French, make sure you ask questions whilst an English speaking member of staff is there and book onto your trips early so you don't miss out. I would definitely stay here again if I was going back to Marrakesh.

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

The food was generally excellent in Morocco. However, our favourite meal was at Le Marrakchi, just off the main square. It was a bit pricy, but the tangia dishes were outstanding. Order the chocolate surprise for dessert...you won't be disappointed!
