We forgot to book one night and were referred to this Riad by the staff at Riad L'Orangerie. It was fantastic. The staff were accommodating, helpful, friendly, and beyond welcoming. We had the entire place to ourselves one night-- amazing! For 24 hours we really got to feel like it was our riad in Marrakech. One tip: this one can... More

I had the pleasure of staying at the Riad Majala during my recent trip to Marrakech. It was a charming hideaway riad just off the main access road to the medina. It was a little confusing to find at first, but once we got the hang of it, we were fine. The staff was particularly helpful during our visit. For... More

We stayed here with family & friends while attending a wedding so we maxed out the whole place. The rooms were lovely and cool and the central courtyard was a great place to socialize and drink tea with everyone. It was clean and friendly. It certainly is tucked away inside the Medina, which is part of the charm but finding... More

Riad Majala is tucked inside the Medina, yet is very quiet. While it is a bit of a trek from the closest road open for auto traffic, we were able to find our way by following left turn, right turn, left, right...etc. The rooms were comfortable, and the baths were very nice. While not super upscale, it served our purposes... More

Apparently this building is not a restored old riad, it is all new. Rooms are large, well equipped and very clean. Bathrooms have good showers and are clean, as well. The riad is located in the thick of things, but at the end of a small maze of alley and therefore it's quiet. Breakfast was good, too. We had dinner... More

I wrote a review about our wonderful stay here on the sight for Riad Majala's sister riad (Riad Magellan), but wanted to add a specific review and recommendation regarding the dinner we had at Riad Majala.

Perfect location, half way between the souks and Jemaa El Fnaa; there is a somewhat intrepid 3 minute walk from the main street to the riad, down tiny alleyways and one especially dark tunnel. This does mean it's nice and quiet. Opt for an airport taxi; a car will drop you a 5 minute walk away and a man with... More

Everywhere you go in Marakesh, you are asked 'where you from' and after you tell them the same response 'big welcome'.

“1) There are porters at the Medina entrances. Hire one to take your luggage in a cart and to find the riad for you. 2) Take a torch to light your way when heading back late.”

“If you are big on locking doors and high level seurity, the curtained doorway and no keys to the rooms may make you nervous - don't be. Rooms on the first level are probably a bit quieter than those on the gorund floor.”
