This Riad is amazing. They have maintained every element of charm. Not only is the Riad so nicely preserved but the staff are friendly and helpful. If there are rooms available I suggest booking them.

Evrything is perfect. Quiet, charming friendly staff, good food and great rooms. Location is not fare from place, but not in the big trouble. Also good for guests who can not walk long distances, cause near the taxis. We will come back for sure.

When you go to Marrakesh you need to be right in the middle of the city and you should not shut yourself away in an American/European styled hotel that cost 4 times the price of the Rafaele and means taxi journeys to get anywhere. This Riad was PERFECT for us in every way. Perfect location, very clean, amazing atmosphere, and...

The "riad" is one of Morocco's great concepts: former great houses, some centuries old, spotted throughout the urban "medinas," or old, walled cities, which themselves are usually circled by new cities, outside the medina walls. Inside the Marrakech medina is madness. Unlike the Fes medina, Marrakech's allows motor bikes and bicycles, in addition to the donkeys, hand carts and pedestrian...

Stayed in the riad with friends in March. The entrance to the riad was a bit disconcerting through an alley way which was dark during the day but well lit at night. However once you enter the riad you find yourself in a quite, serene and pleasantly cool atrium. The riad has been tastefully restored and the upstairs terrace was...

We arrived at the Riad Rafaele in the evening and got a bit of a shock. It was really hectic and we were taken down an alley way to a big painted wooden door. Inside was an oasis of peace and calm, just how I would imagine it to be in Marrakech. The hotel is spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished....

Well what a pleasant surprise we had. The taxi we had, organised by the Rafaele, drove through some narrow streets and phoned through to the Rafaele when the driver got as far as he could go, within minutes a member of the Rafaele staff came to meet us and quite happily carried our bags a short distance until we reached...

Riad Rafaele is an oasis. In a few steps you walk from the frenetic hub bub of the medina streets into a santuary, fragrant and gorgeous. In the courtyard there is a beautiful water feature and fountain adorned with rose petals that creates a calming and serene atmosphere. Surrounding the courtyard are nooks and spaces where you can sit and...

As the photos from other reviewers show, this beautiful riad is pure eye candy (we took as many pictures here as at any of the attractions in Marrakech) and the service is first rate - Hakim and Isham were both extremely helpful, and we met the owners who were gracious and charming as well. We concur with all the other...

“Riads are not hotels. More like a person’s house you are invited to stay at. The rooms come in a number of different sizes and I think ours was probably in the middle. The Pastels Room. The entry was in the middle and the bed to the left as you walk in. On each side of the bed it looks like little closets in the wall. If you open the bottom one, it provides a bedside shelf and room for the suitcases. The top part has hangers for clothes. This central area has a couple of chairs, tables and stools and a very high ceiling (maybe 11 or 12 feet/ 3.5 meter). To the right is the shower and toilet area. This is separated from the main room by a door and a wall (7 foot/2 meter) that does not go all the way to the ceiling. So in a way its open to the other room. Or better to say it was one room with a division. It was wonderfully decorated and comfortable. I recommend closing the shutters even on the top part of the windows when changing or in the toilet as it is possible to see into the room from the rooftop terrace. We didn’t have any problems with that, it is just an observation. ”
