Very welcoming and really helpful, really enjoyed our stay. We were able to organise a desert tour and waterfalls day trip with minimum effort, and hostel was able to accommodate all our needs. Room was lovely, just off rooftop terrace. Breakfast was great - lots of variety and tasty. Would stay here again.

Good location, about a ten minute walk from the main square. Clean room and bathroom (but no door just a curtain FYI). Nice terrace but not always usable as laundry is done on the terrace by the staff. Not all the staff spoke english but they tried their best which was nice! Would have liked more info on what to see and do nearby.


very good hostel, staff very friendly and helpful, close to the main square and easy to get around. good breakfast included as well. would definitely stay here again

A nice and peaceful oasis in the chaos that is called Marrakech. The staff took good care of us and they were very cooperative when we wanted to change something in our booking. There was however a little nighttime incident with the neighbour and his washing machine, which made us feel as if we were sleeping (or being kept awake to be more precise) with loud techno music..


This hostel is in a good location (if you want to be in the middle with all the tourists) and the room was ok, but a bit dirty (stains on sheets). Also, the manager was extremely rude to his staff. When we asked to turn on the AC, he refused and told us it was for summer (even though it was 45 degrees out). I wouldn't recommend staying here.


Excellent location for a hostel, right I'm the middle of the ancienne media. However directions were near impossible and took us over an hour to find. The assistant staff were very helpful and made us delicious breakfast in the morning. Rooms were nice however the ac did not work . We did also find some ants in our shower, but the room was adequate and the water hot. Iike I said, great location, and decent hostel .


This hostel is just perfect in every way! Superb location, comfortable, relaxing, hospitable, and lovely hosts always willing to help. Delicious breakfasts and cool interior :) We loved staying here, felt like our home in Marrakesh. Definately go back and highly recommend to anyone. Thanks again for having us!


considering that Marrakesh is a very hectic place this riad is a perfect tranquil stay for you to find some peace. The rooms are great, staff are very attentive and the breakfast is a plenty. All in all this was a great stay and after we (my boyfriend and I) travelled extensively throughout Morocco and found a place that matched Riad Chez Lea's standard!


Nice breakfast, good room can recommend it.


They didn't get our reservation for the first night, so we have to stay for the first night in another Riad and the welcome was a little bit weird. The staff is very helpful, the breakfast is good with various pastries. The location is good, close to different landmarks and a taxi station. The room is very wet - the shower is hot and has power but the room is getting flooded after a few minutes. After all, its not a bad deal for a short trip to Marrakesh.
