The Riad is a bit far from the Plaza Jeema El Fna(15-20 min walking), but once you learn your way is totally worth it. The service is great, rooms are clean and decorated with a simple and beautiful taste. Breakfast was good. The Riad is very quiet. It has a nice terrace where you can have breakfast.

First things first - this is a great Riad. It's small (only 3 rooms), clean, relatively quiet (bring earplugs for call to prayer from nearby mosque at 5am!), comfortable rooms, good hot water, roof top terrace, breakfast and if you are interested, you can order dinner. We stayed in a variety of places in Morocco and Riad Shalimar was one...

From the moment we arrived at lovely Riad Shalimar we felt at home. Marie Helene is the most amazing hostess and she was waiting for us with a great mint tea that we enjoyed in the amazing patio of the riad. We chatted in a friendly atmosphere while the cook prepared the most fantastic tagine!! I miss her cooking so...

It is quite difficult to find initially, as it is located in the East part of medina (Bab Ayllen) and it is easy to get lost.It is about 20 minute walk to souk and Jalmal El Fna. However, you get used...

Having read about Marrakech we were expecting it to be different but nothing quite prepares you for the madness! The taxi drive from the airport is through tiny streets heaving with people, and then the last bit of the journey is on foot through narrow alleyways. When we finally reached the Riad we were welcomed into a beautiful courtyard, shown...

Great little riad with friendly staff. Good value at the lower end of the budget, presumably due to lack of pool and the fact it is a good 25-30 minute walk from the main square (tho a few minutes walk the other way provides plenty of taxis). We loved the terrace lighting (and the stairs up to it) at night...
