We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Riad. The family running it are very helpful and friendly. They are giving amazing breakfasts, every morning a bit different. They organized a custom trip for us to the Atlas mountains. Location is great, being in the old town, but the modern part of Marrakech, Guilez is also easily within walking distance. To find the hostel for the first time can be tricky. Worth getting a taxi from Koutobia or from the airport (more expensive). Or just ask Aziz for help.


Very Nice place!!!! I loved


The hostel is really hard to find, and the only way we found it (there are absolutely no signs) was with the "help" of a young guy who would not leave the hostel until we paid him the amount of money he requested. Also, we were completely alone in the hostel quite a few times with not even any staff being present, which was odd. When they were there, though, the owners were really nice and welcoming.

Amazing staff who are willing to go above and beyond to meet yours needs. Room was cleaning everyday which was fantastic. The bathroom was seperate to our room so we were provided with robes which was nice. Only thing I can think of is the shower filling up quickly and making a mess. Otherwise everything is great :)


Staying at Riad Mchicha was an incredible experience! It's a great place to chill in the loud Marrakech. Aziz, helped us to arrange airport transfer and everything else during our stay. We were so glad with the whole experience, that after our tour in the desert we decided to comeback there. It may sound to great to be true, but it actually is. Definitely was one of the highlights of our trip to Morocco.


We had a great time there! Aziz and his family were really nuce with us. They offered us a tea to welcome us. He showned always interest on how where we feeling. He let us do a late check out. He also gave us something to bring to our families...I have no words to describe how lucky we felt having met him!!!

Thank you for your feed back, we were so glad to help you in order that your stay be a good experience,thank you again for your choice of our riad and we trust your confidence, we hope to be always in the level of your expectations. Best Regards Aziz DERRAZI


This was simply the best. We arrived in the night, our host made us feel at home, served us tea and biscuits. It was a calm, perfect place to rest, and we had an interesting conversation with the host about the history of Morocco. He answered all our questions about Marrakech, and as we had to wake up early to leave the next morning, he woke up at 5am to serve us breakfast. We couldn't ask for more, but then he also took us to the taxis to help us get to the train station! Very dedicated family!
