Honestly, havening never travelled in the area I wasn’t sure what to expect. But after our stay - my 18 year old daughter and I - we want to come back soon again!
We had the best stay - and was spoiled by Mouad and Zahra every day - and still had our privacy to relax in this paradise of a riad!
All from contact, booking, pickup at airport, drop of a few streets from the riad where we were met, our checkin, our meals, the rooms, the rooftop terrasse, the decor, the ambiance - the late checkout, luggage-help, transport to airport - all was PERFECT!!
We easily walked to and from souk, sights and the big square during both day and evening. We felt safe in the neighbourhood - and appreciated Mouad showing us the way the first day and walking us to a restaurant the first night and picking us up there again.
We only met the sweetest people all over Marrakech - and fell in love with this totally crazy and amazing city.
We have really enjoyed our estay at the Riad. It’s very comfortable and cozy, amenities are superb and the organization top.
Zahara and Mouad, two little gems

What an amazing property. It is beautiful, tastefully decorated and has the ambience to match. The staff are simply wonderful - friendly, helpful, charming and go above and beyond to make your stay fantastic! From the first moment we booked Laura was quick to respond and answered all my questions and helped us with visa letters and pointing us in the right direction. on arrival everything ran super smoothly and we were welcomed to the property with open arms. The location was perfect - in a friendly neighbourhood with an easy walk to all the attractions and everything that this beautiful city has to offer (it is also easy to find - a REAL bonus). The meals cooked for us were sublime and the breakfasts were lovely - eaten on the terrace in the warm sunshine. Cannot fault this property at all - BOOK NOW!
Our stay at Riad Romm’an was amazing. The Riad was tastefully decorated with all the comforts to make our stay memorable. Maoud and Zhara were wonderful hosts. They took care of us, preparing delicious meals, booking dinner reservations, arranging day excursions outside the city and scheduling treatments at the hamman. We would definitely recommend Riad Romm’an to anyone visiting Marrakech.
Riad Romm’an is a gorgeous oasis in the midst of this bustling, chaotic, vibrant city. Every room is as beautiful as the photos led us to believe it would be - and more so! We enjoyed every second of our stay here and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it. We felt very well cared for by the staff who bent over backwards to accommodate our every need and desire. Riad Romm'an plays a huge part in the wonderful memories we take with us from Marrakech! Thank you!
A relaxing oasis in the middle of the hectic Medina
We are a family of five (children aged 15, 12 and 11) who stayed at Riad Romm'an for four days in July 2018. After a cab ride that took us in and out of the Medina, we arrived on the small street and despite having seen the pictures online, we were not quite sure what to expect.
I have to say that it was even better in real life. The house is simply gorgeous. Every room is absolutely perfect and decorated with impeccable taste. We mostly enjoyed the terrace with its refreshing plunge pool and numerous seating areas. We listened to the call to prayer while taking a break from the heat of Marrakech. We ate every delicious breakfast prepared by Zahra upstairs. The three bedrooms are spacious and comfortable and open up to the beautiful courtyard; they each have their own bathrooms.
We did a lot in Marrakech: visited the Saadian tombs, the Bahia Palace, El Badii Palace, the jewish cemetery and synagogue, the Jardins Majorelle, Berber museum and YSL museum, the Djemaa El Fna place (with delicious fruit juices), and of course, we got lost in the small streets of the Medina (yes, there will be a guy or two or three who will bring you to the spice market "only open today" or point you in the wrong direction... it's part of the trip). When we needed a break from all the noise and energy of the Medina, we retreated back to "our" Riad with pleasure. Abdul made sure that we got everything we needed (he lives on the ground floor and is very discreet).
We loved this place and would like to go back soon (need more vacation time!). It was really a wonderful oasis!
