Property Description

What is Riad Dia? Quite simply, it is the house that you may have once designed in your head and though 'no, its just not possible I could ever live in a place like this'. An incredible traditional riad with the atmosphere of a backpackers hostel, Riad Dia is located less than a minute from the main square Place D'Jeema el Fna. With a lovely swimming pool in the communal courtyard - colorful, sunny and social, lots of dorm rooms (and these are no ordinary dorms - they are seriously luxury), and several terraces to relax on, sunbathe, put the world to rights.

The riad is traditional, but the colors are bright and wild! It is an inside out, upside down, topsy curvy house. The gardens are indoors - you can even do some fruit picking). Sit among our courtyard gardens with fellow travelers and new friends; make crazy plans for your travels - they will definitely become realities. Or, don't make crazy travel plans! Just enjoy our unique atmosphere over tea and shisha.

Groups are more than welcome. We have significant experience with all kinds of groups, and it really is the perfect space in Marrakesh for a trekking group, photography class group or student group.

Riad Dia is a little contrast of a riad. It is perfect for independent travellers looking for adventure and a place to relax and at the same time it is a one-stop shop for your entire Moroccan trip. We can help you with every aspect of your trip and you don't even need to leave the swimming pool!

We welcome guests from everywhere outside of Marrakech, but do not accept re-locators.

    Amazing hostel. Easily the best tea I have had in my life, and they are always happy to make some for you (and it's free!). Great areas to hangout with everyone on the rooftop and on the main floor. By far one of the best hostels I have ever stayed at. After just a few days I feel like I have known the staff and everyone else I met for years!

    Zacharia and Rasheed welcomed me the moment I arrived with a Moroccan tea. The vibe here is really good. Super chill and friendly. One of those hostels where people just gel. It’s like walking into a family. It’s close to the markets and all the action. Helluva place to stay when I’m Marrakech!

    The owner of the abode,Rasheed was very friendly and accommodating. The atmosphere of the Riad is great, with a good mix of music and prime location within Marrakesh. I wish more Hostels emulated this place.

    Rachid has been a very pleasant host. Riad Dia is the perfect example of the marrocan hospitality. From begin to end they make you feel at home and show sincere interest in you and your plans And if you have not planned anything yet, they are more then happy to guide you through the booking process of excursions around marrakech. The rooftop is out of this world, such a relaxing atmosphere to enjoy your unlimited Marrocan tea and to chat with other travellers. I would definitely come back

    Excellent staff, Rashid and Zach made us feel at home and were very friendly. Free brekky was delicious. Showers and bathrooms cleab with free towel rental. Many areas to chill or socialise after a big day exploring Marrakech, from the terrace to the ground floor. Good atmosphere and good vibe

    Very Good

    11 Nov 2019
    Pros: good location, good breakfast, nice staff, good rooftop terrace Cons: two of the toilets were missing toilet seats, bathroom on top floor smells weird and shower doesn't work and sink didn't drain. Cleaners cleaned at 9am which is an awkward time when people want to shower. Beds were not particularly comfortable, mine squeeked very loudly. Music choices were questionable.
