I left feeling like i had a little family in Morocco. I feel like if I knocked on the door right now and needed something they would be there to help. Omar and his family made us extremely comfortable, yes it might be a bit tricky to find (do not fear, you will find it) once you have found it you feel like it is your little secret peaceful haven in the busy city. If I ever chance back to Marrakech I will know where I am staying.

I absolutely loved it here! Initially a little hard to find but once you know where it is its very easy to get back to. Very close to the souks but you would never know it as the raid is so quiet and peaceful. Beautiful courtyard where you instantly feel relaxed. Omar was a fabulous host, welcoming and very helpful with all our questions and requests. We had a private room which was very comfortable and spacious. We had booked in for 1 night but booked another as was so lovely!!

Riad with very nice atmosphere and you really feel welcome in this place, where you can experience a bit of real maroccan life. Hard or impossible to find alone for the first time, but afterwards not a problem anymore.

Omar and his family are running a perfect riad in the medina. Best place if you dont want to be stress and want to find good persons in Marrakesh. +++++

This guesthouse is really excellent, thanks to the location , the nice building and most of all Omar and his family who made us feel much at home. He also arranged us a car with driver to the Atlas mountains and Ben Ait Haddou, as well as airport transport. (location is near to square and souks, but in a very quiet back alley system).

We enjoyed our stay at this riad so much!! The owner was super friendly and helpful when organising our visit in Marrakech. The room was beautiful and the breakfast excellent. We would stay here again, 100%.

We had a great time at Riad Sidi Omar, and Omar, our friendly host, really looked after us. Breakfast was amazing and our room was very comfortable, although, like most riads, you can't lock the door to your room. Also, a tip: the riad is basically impossible to find by yourself the first time so you'll probably need to ask someone to show you the way, and there's no sign above the door announcing the name of the riad. We would highly recommend the Riad Sidi Omar.

Had a great stay. Loved it so much we decided to stay for 3 nights. Omar is the ultimate host; friendly, informative and welcoming. He even picked us up from the airport. The breakfast is also fantastic.

From the moment that you arrive, Omar is your man. You'll have some tea with him, enjoy a nice chat, learn about the local area, and begin to get acclimated to Marrakech. Omar can help you with whatever you need, and will give you great directions around the local area. The riad itself is clean, comfortable, convenient and cozy. I honestly can't recommend this place enough, and when I return to Marrakech I will definitely be staying here!!

Wonderful stay here, lovely family owns the riad and are so helpful! We had some great chats and we were made to feel so welcome. The riad is beautifully kept as well, and the enormous breakfasts were delicious. It is hard to find the first time but remember that once in derb snan you may feel lost but cant go far wrong as its essentially a giant cul-de-sac. Highly recommended!

An amazing stay at Riad Sidi Omar...Omar & his family were so kind & welcoming. Beautiful riad, v. clean, lovely roof terrace. Central to the hustle & bustle of the medina, but still very peaceful and safe! Omar is wonderful - we learnt a lot about Marrakech & Morocco, and visited places in the city we would not have known to go to otherwise. It really felt like we were staying with a friend, not at a hostel. When I next visit Marrakech, there is no doubt I will be staying with Omar again!

Riad Sidi Omar was a really nice and friendly stay. The Riad is located next to souks and the big square Jemaa el-Fnaa as well as to the important sights of Marrakech. We travelled around Marroc and this Riad was actually one of the best, because the owner was really friendly, the rooms are clean and inviting and the breakfast has been one of the biggest on our entire trip. .

Omar was especially helpful to us in every way! He made sure our needs were taken care of, even when we showed up tired and late to his home! We stayed a total of 3 days at his place and it was great! The breakfast every morning was above and beyond ANY other place we stayed in all of Morocco! 3 or 4 different breads, eggs, olives, cheese, yogurt, juice, Tea/coffee.... Anything else needed?! We went on a trip to the Sahara desert too, and it was the highlight of our trip! Thanks Omar!

The Riad was not clean. The sheets and towels smelt dirty as if they had not been changed. The dark alleyways to the riad should have been mentioned to us in the description as they did not make us feel safe. Overall a basic place for a high price.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thank you for your comment which is not correct at all. I can remind you what you wrote in my guest book: "we had a good stay here exploring the medina, good location away from the hussle and bussel of the souk. Lovely breakfast. Thanks for a pleasant stay. Wesam"
