Our room was large and beautiful, well appointed with beautiful carved wooden bed frame and furniture. The bathroom was nice and large and clean, had a blow dryer, but needed a little more light over the sink and mirror. The A/C worked fantastic, kept the room nice and cold. The breakfast was good, coffee, tea or mint tea, yogurt with... More

I have to say that from the moment we walked through the door we loved our visit to this Riad. After the walk through a dark passage to reach the front door it was the perfect oasis of peace & tranquility in the middle of mayhem. They looked after us very well & i have to say nothing was too... More

We had a city break end of June. The riad has a great location, right in the center of Medina. The staff was just great: from the very beginning, Naïma took care of us, advising us what should we first visit (maps offered, with plenty of explanations), what should we do in different cases, where should we eat, how should...

We have now visited Marrakech three times and the two times we stayed for more than one day here we've stayed in Riad El Wiam - and what a treat it is! There are so many positive things to say about this place - but one of the main reasons we came back is Naima - the "innkeeper". She is... More

All the reviews are of Riad El Wilam are true. Excellent value, we loved it. Once you get through the door you will be amazed at the courtyard which is so quiet and tranquil compared to what was going on outside. The room was clean and really nicely decorated ceiling in a traditional style, the bed was enormous. The wifi... More

An excellent, refined and very cleaned place in the eh art of Medina, just few minutes walk to Jemaa El-Fna, the biggest square heart of the life in the Medina.

After stepping out of the taxi (which was not allowed further into the medina at that time of day), we were met by a fellow with a pull-cart. Into the cart went the backpacks and off the gent went with us; through the maze. After many turns and a final one down a deserted, dim and narrow alley, we stood... More

Very good place for few days stay in Marrakesh , just few minutes walk for Jemaa El-Fna , hidden in the "real" part of Medina - not that turistic (few times in the street local people were trying to explain us that we missed our way :o).

We only stayed for one night on our last night in Morocco but thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I loved this riad's traditional decor, every detail was handcrafted, there was a calming water fountain and wonderful scents running through the halls.
