we are a family of three and stayed here for two nights. The first room we were offered was beautiful, 4 poster bed and all, however it wasn't suitable for three of us. Our room was clean and comfortable though the photos of the hostel were probably taken a while back. The riad is in the medina and easy enough to find, the staff couldn't be more helpful, even come to meet us from the taxi and help with our bags. The only almost complaint would be that our "free airport transfer" was 7 euros pp

The staff was fantastic, very helpful. I bought watermelon (as the breakfast consisted of coffee, orange juice & toast..I don't eat bread) and they cut it up for meme daily. The place unfortunately was just too expensive. For €4 more a day you can stay at 5 star hotel with pool. Would recommend them if they lowered price by 1/2.


I do not have to complain about the riad! it's perfect! People very sympa and always willing to help! I recommend for couples, very romantic and pleasant location.


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
