Nice, small riad in the heart of Marrakesh Medina. All in all is quite easy to find, but the first time you will probably need to pay someone to bring you there...a sign on the alley or at least on the door would definitely help! The room was ok, quite small but with all the comforts (no window though, shame not being able to see the light!) a roof terrace to chill out and a great breakfast that made my mornings a real pleasure! Good value for money.

Excellent location, 5 minutes from the main square but quiet. Hearty breakfasts, rooftop terrace and cute sparrows nesting on the wall :O)

Great hostel, staff were great and did everything they could to make our stay easy, including preparing an early breakfast for us one day when we had to leave before regular breakfast time. Free airport pickup , we just had to email beforehand. The riad was lovely, very traditional and with a great sun terrace. Breakfast is amazing! definitely recommend

Excellent location for a city break to Marrakech, an easy 5-minute walk from Jamaa El-Fna square. We loved the authenticity of the traditional riad and that we were right in the centre of Marrakech rather than on the outskirts where the large impersonal chain hotels were.

Lovely riad with a good location. Unfortunately the sheets weren't changed on our bed and the staff was generally unhelpful from emails sent before arrival to our actual time there. The riad is also located on a very dark back alley. Stay vigilant if arriving at night and try to convince someone to pick you up from the main square, particularly if you're arriving alone.

The hostel is nice,however, due to its location I'm going to have to say that I would not recommend this hostel for young people. We were 6 friends, we were having a drink at the terrace, we were not loud but when 6 people talk I'm sure can be heard. The neighbors started throwing things at us, they came yelling (in arabic) that we had to keep it quite. We felt really scared and insecured about this, we were on vacation, we are between 25 and 35 years old, I dont know what people expected.

We have just returned from a wonderful week long City break in Marrakech staying at the Riad Venezia, a compact and authentically Moroccan Riad in the depths of the vibrant and colourful Souk district in Marrakech. The staff were smiling and friendly and spoke really good English. Our two favourites were Mohamed and Ahmed who looked after us so well during the whole of our stay.The Riad's breakfast was amazing and the dinners at night tasty traditional Tagines! Thank you for a great time. xxx

Very helpful staff, really nice breakfast, but difficult to find the place, because they have no name on the door saying that it is a hostel/riad/whatever...

Really hard to find. And there also is no sign on the door.. Super nice people, they also arranged a tour we took too the Sahara for 3 days, it was great and safe. Super reliable staff, very friendly, speak englisch fine, they are not pushy, they are polite and give you enough privacy. It was a nice quiet friendly and safe stay at Riad Venezia

Maybe a better explanation on how to locate the riad would be good. Bathroom was clean but not well maintain.

We had a great time at the Riad Venezia. The staff was so nice and the atmosphere and place very cosy and beautiful. The breakfast was probably the best! (Creps, tea, coffee, jam, butter, cheese, cake... Just delicious). The only thing is that we though that there was hairdrier and gel and shampoo (in internet they said that they provided you) but there were not in the end. Neither TV in the bedroom but you don't need at all in Marrakech, because you have enough things to see.

It called "deLux", but it's far from any luxury. There was no wi-fi. even though guy from reception kept saying that its gonna be fixed next day and on the next day the same story. The bedding wasn't changed when we arrived. Location is very good, closed to the center of Medina.

The riad is quiet with a peaceful atmosphere (in Winter) and breakfast really good.The staff were particularly friendly, gave very good advice and were efficient in arranging trips. The riad (one of a group of 3 of the same name) is in a good location, not far from the main square, with lots of interesting shops, food stalls, etc en route. There were some slightly annoying hustlers close to the riad who tried to entice us to the 'berber market' - just politely ignore them or inform riad staff.

The staff at Riad Venezia were so welcoming and kind. We were offered our choice of the available rooms, and the location was very close to Jemaa el Fna square. The breakfast was absolutely wonderful! We had a great stay, thank you!!
