Hamid and Valerie were fantastic putting us up at such short notice. Very helpful with regards to the area and we had the best nights sleep there. Very authentic, just as we wanted. Would definitely stay here again.

A haven of peace and calm at the edge of the medina. The owner is a delight - so helpful, he couldnt do enough for us. Good cool rooms, safe and a great friendly atmosphere. We took an excellent excursion from here and left bags for a couple of days no problem. It felt like a 'home from home, We...

We didn't get off to the best start, arriving late afternoon, we had just been dropped off by a driver of a cooking course we had been to and was assured his "friend" would show us to our Riad for "free". Obviously, it turned out this was not for free and we refused to pay. We were aware of fake...

My friend and I stayed in a twin room at the Riad for 5 nights and couldn't imagine a better place. The location is nearly perfect, next to a big bus stop where also the airport bus stops, not too far from the main square (about 15 minutes) and the souks (starting only 5 minutes away from the Riad) and...

In all the hustle and bustle of Marrakech, Riad Jakoura was a little peace of heaven. Situated 3 minutes from the entrance to the souks, and 15-20 minutes from Jemaa el Fna by easy walk. The owner is VERY kind and helpful. Riad is beautifully decorated and very clean. At the top is cute terrace, in which we would chill...

Our stay was extraordinary! The staff/owners were fantastic to say the least. The location of the riad provided proximity to the souks, the market and the hustle that is the definition of Morocco. The mint tea was unreal! The design was uniquely Moroccan, the Terrace gorgeous, and the breakfast, tasty. Rooms were clean, and AC refreshing. I would recommend this...

“Do not take a room on the ground floor. Too much noise and smoke................ The terrace is great to relax and absorb the atmosphere.”
