If only this had lived up to its TripAdvisor profile regarding facilities and offerings. Place was clean and firm bed was comfortable. Food offered was basic and brought in from the street and we had to sit outside our rooms in warm anoraks to eat it. Roof terrace for breakfast was pleasant enough if you were lucky enough to bag a space in the sun. Otherwise it was anorak time again. Were left sitting in cold, draughty corridor for more than an hour on our arrival on a dark, cold and wet night with our suitcases. We'd booked half board and eventually after our enquiring as to our "dinner" some lukewarm soup arrived and then after another long wait some salad and something else forgettable followed by a commercial pudding. We were abandoned most of the time and had to search out staff to ask if we could see our rooms. What a shock. They were like fridges and contained nothing more than the aforementioned firm bed, a bedside cabinet and a hatstand. We slept in our clothes to keep warm. The following day we asked to be moved from our downstairs windowless cells. We moved to rooms upstairs which at least had air-conditioning which we could use as a heater. The TV didn't work either unless you counted one station which broadcast in German. Still no wardrobe though and not even a coat hanger in sight. There was a flimsy curtained space at the end of the room which contained a loo, wash hand basin and an open shower which worked well enough and gave plenty of much needed hot water. Only in this space was there light enough to read by. So we lived out of suitcases for a week and read by Kindle light. Loved vibrant Marrakech and the Kasbah we were situated in and the lively atmosphere but very disappointed with riad dubai.
the Riad Dubai is great and real value for money it is in a very good location in the real Kasbah - not the most modern but great if u want the real thing. It is clean and well furnished and the heating and bedding, noting it is winter, was superb [friends staying in a boutique hotel nearby had very poor heating and no winter blankets!!] Mohammad and his staff were great and could not do enough for you - we recommend and would go again -u have to order a day in advance if you want a dinner
Because Riad Dubai was overbooked, we were placed in Riad Jibril. If i read the reviews here on Tripadvisor, i get the impression this happens more often. Riad Jibril is not on Tripadvisor. The location of Jibril is probably a bit better than Dubai.
Nice location (20 mins walk to the main square and markets), comfortable bed, hot water for baths, stable Wi-Fi, great team, rooftop terrace. I travelled to Marrakech for a short 4 day holiday as a lady solo traveller. I found the riad very comfortable because the team made me feel at home. Mohammed, Khadija, and Hassan made my stay extremely comfortable, prepared me amazing food and tasty mint tea. They arranged a day trip outside of the city for me, showed me how to navigate the intricate alleyways to find my way back to the riad and tried their best to ensure I had the best possible stay there. The home cooked food was very good. The Wi-Fi was very good, I could make whatsapp call and stream without problems. The other guests were mostly French, German, Dutch, and English couples and solo travellers. Good address.
I travelled here by taxi, First tip, be prepared to haggle the price! You will be amazed how this varies depending on the mood of the driver. Also be prepared for a long walk to the hotel as there are no roads in the near vacinity so I was dropped off quite a distanc away. It is also no the easiest to find for a first timer. The hotel itself was very nice inside and rustic, it was extremely clean inside. Ssecond tip, if you are nice to the staff, they will be nice to you, of course nicer if you choose to tip them - reccomended. I travelled March time so it was a lot cloder than expected but the staff were very accomodating, providing extra blankets and even made me tea. The staff were very helpful when it came to planning trips and also gave a few tips on what/what not to do or look out for. The internet was very poor but to be expected in a developing country. Some things were not so good. It doesnt matter day or night but a memeber of staff was always sleeping in the dining area so I tended to avoid this as it felt a little intrusive and I didnt want to wake them. My room overlooked the other rooms, one morning I woke late to see a little boy (10/11) sneaking into the other rooms and looking through peoples belongings - so dont leave money/valuables behind. However it was a good place in terms of location. I cannot comment on the food here as I felt it was overpriced so chose not to try any of it and ate out instead - there are lots of these places readily available. Be warned - people will hassle you at every corner asking you where you are going and will offer to tell you the way but wanting payment for this. They are always looking for any excuse to "earn" some money.
Stayed here for 4 nights... Easy to find and we found it perfect location to travel around Medina! Everything is accessible walking and it's not too close to the square which means you get a good night's sleep! Mohammed and Hassan were there for us whenever we needed them to sort out taxis and Excursions at very good prices compared to the prices which were branded about town! I would definitely recommend this place of you are after a genuine Moroccan experience! Just felt very safe! Will definitely be staying here again if I return to Marrakech
Stayed here for a week. The road is easy to find-even at night. For us it was perfectly placed and meant we could walk everywhere.the rooms were clean and the beds comfy. Initially we had a room downstairs next to the reception. We enquired if there were any other rooms and the next day were relocated to an upstairs room. Loved the style of this road and the roof terrace was a lovely place to relax and have breakfast. It could be a bit noisy but we were expecting this due to it being a road and not a hotel. The staff at the road were great. Nothing was too much trouble and they booked a number of trips for us during our stay. We would definitely stay here again
We had a great time in Riad Dubai. Jamal and his team were always very available and kind with my friends and I. The room was always nice (exept once: cockroaches entered the tub drain. Pls don't forget to keep it close after shower), air con and clean and the decor was cute.
From the moment of arriving to the time we left, nothing was to much trouble. We were promptly collected from the airport and transferred to our Riad where our gracious hosts supplied us with cool water, trust me it was very much needed. Our room was basic but very comfortable, I slept fully for the first time in ages. The bathroom again is basic but adequate. When we first arrived, must admit was terrified we would get lost, but the Riad is set in a lovely old area where the locals are very friendly, the children would point us in the right direction if we looked lost. loved our time there and would certainly return. thank you to everyone for making our stay so fantastic
We have had a brilliant week in Riad Dubai. The star of the show was Jamal who made everyday interesting. Breakfast was perfect and Jamal could not do more for us to make the stay better. Jamal brings sunshine to every morning. He organised our days at the pool and showed us to wherever we asked. I love him!
