Me and my four friends enjoyed our stay in the with love maintained Riad Jona very much. During our four days the stuff was absolutely friendly, attentively and all in all merely perfect. Furthermore, the food is soooooo delicious and the price performance ratio just top. Also, the location is very close to the market (souks) and to the touristic attractions. Definitely recommend it! Love ACDC (insider to our friends) :)

I spent a pleasant stay with my lovely wife in 2014, personals smiling and attentive all the time. 5 mn from place jemaa El Fna, its location is excellent. The rooms are spacious and always clean. If I'll come back to Marrakech, I'll definitely stay there

The warm welcome offered by the staff made us feel immediately at home, with mint tea, a cooling fan and a brief induction to the riad and to the medina. Our standard room was upgraded to a better one and it was spacious with good air-conditioning and a decent bathroom. House keeping and cleanliness was fantastic. There was a good choice for breakfast and tea and drinks were a reasonable price. We found it best to go out around 8.30/9.00 am, come back for a siesta around 2.00-4.30 to escape the main heat of the day (up to 38 degrees a few days ago), and then go out again for the evening. We used the roof terrace to relax later in the evening. We went on two trips organised though the riad: one to Essaouira on the coast and one to the Ourika Valley. Both were great days out and it was nice to get away from the constant hustle of Marrakech. The riad is a medium walk to the main square, but one that was manageable and it suited us to be at a little distance from the noise of the square. I would recommend this riad to anyone looking for a peaceful, friendly place to stay. The staff were always on hand to ask for advice. Top tip: go to visit the artisan centre in the Rue de la Kasbah, just up from the riad. You can find everything you might want to buy in the souk later - the bonus is that here the prices are fixed and marked so you can see what you should be aiming for when bartering in the souks later on.

This Riad is pretty, a great location and staff...they have a beautiful mini jacuzzi too in one of their lounge areas and also a roof top so airy in the evenings. It is close to the square, the souk, the jewish quarter, the El Bahia palace, the Tombs,taxi park and so many attractions and restaurants (all a walkable distance)...Hassan the caretaker was ever helpful and always willing to assist...he had answers to everything! Abdul was also great and very friendly. We were an all ladies group and Hassan helped us book our appointments at the hamam (the best spa in Marrakech called Les Bains de Marrakech) which is also a 5 minutes walk away. The only down side is not with the Riad but with some young boys who tend to make obscene comments sometimes when we walked in/out of the street...they are harmless because they are locals i guess but it was annoying...I don't know if this is what they do to tourists in general. All in all I will stay here again. These are pictures I took...

This Riad is tucked away in the Kasbah region of Marrakech. Its a good 20 minute walk to the Medina, but most places are a walk in Marrakech. I cannot rate this highly enough for the friendly welcome and assistance provided to us. Hassan the manager and his staff are superb and are duly proud of what they do. They booked the taxi from the airport for me, which was a good move as we arrived late and you are taken to the door, which is quite tucked away and probably hard to find at night. Also we knew what the payment would be. This also saves you time changing money at the Airport as you can just pay the hotel at some stage. They also provided a meal for us, as you wouldn't really want to go out late at night to try and find food. This was really helpful. There kindness just kept coming in many requests we made, from booking a Hammas etc etc The Riad is a lovely retreat from the outside world, with a an exceptional terrace, albeit it was so hot in June we couldnt sit up there for any extended period, but it is lovely and you can see the mountains. Breakfast is simple but perfect and they will even serve you on the terrace. The meal options are very enjoyable too, worth having. The area in which its sited is the Kasbah and we found every one very friendly and happy to engage, there's a small prayer room at the corner of the road and we would respect there time there, obviously and got to know a few locals at prayer time. We were there during Ramadan, which can be trying for local people not to drink or eat when its very hot, please respect this. However they suddenly come more alive when they can eat at sunset, and its a delight to see them at this stage. If you're going to Marrakech then seriously consider this Riad, very much a local and traditional experience with very friendly people.

This is honestly one of the best places I've ever stayed... The staff were super helpful in organising trips and giving advise! Breakfast is awesome and The rooms are perfectly comfortable and well priced. The location of the Riad, which provides a beautiful getaway from the busy Medina, is perfect with everything in walking distance. I honestly don't want to leave! Would highly, highly recommend!

Nothing quite prepares for walking into this historical building, which became home to us for a week. A warm welcome late evening followed by the the person on duty cooking us a simple meal without a demur. The accommodation was wonderfully quirky and we felt transported to a different age. In an old building such as this strange plumbing can be expected, but that did not concern us. They were extremely helpful in advising us how to get around the old city and in arranging an excellent trip to the mountains. Breakfast was a feast. They did not particularly promote their own evening meals, but produced good local food when we were too exhausted to go out. Everyone on the staff could not have been more helpful. We would highly recommend this Riad.

Walking into the Riad from the busy loud medina was a pleasant surprise as you wouldn't expect something as beautiful and calm as the Riad from outside the door. When we arrived, we were greeted beautifully with a friendly smile, moroccan tea and some moroccan cakes. This little gesture made our arrival very pleasant. We also pre-ordered our dinner which was nice to have it sorted on arrival. The meals at the Riad were excellent! Our first night we enjoyed a Tagine with beef, orange and almonds which was to die for! We found the staff to be very friendly, helpful, polite and very professional. The room was standard but clean and the location was close to all the sites to visit in Marrakech. Great stay!

The staff at Riad Jonan were so helpful and extremely welcoming. We didn't arrive at the Riad until 10pm but there was a lovely meal waiting for us which was delicious and excellent value. After each outing it was so lovely to return the the cool and peace in the Riad and we spent a lovely couple of hours in the beautiful Roof Terrace. I would definately recommend Riad Jonan. The only slight down side was that our room overlooked the restaurant and it was a little noisy when people arrived back late and rang the bell and in the morning when breakfast was served but it wasn't to early.

Good location (walking distance to the main sights in the Medina), charming atmosphere and decoration within the hotel, small but nicely decorated rooms, very helpful staff. A good base to explore Marrakesh and its surroundings.
