A quiet Riad which from the inside you wouldn't know you were in a bustling city. Picked up from the airport for 15€. Saved a lot of hassle for a first time visitor. Greeted warmly and by a beautiful fragrance throughout the place. Disappointed by the room which I would fail to call a delux suite. We were told that...

This was my first visit to Morocco / Marrakech and apprehension is quite normal. Nothing to worry about though. My Riad Shama driver was waiting at the airport to get me there, 15 Euro. I had read on various review sites, including Tripadvisior, that the back streets and allyways of Marrakech would be quite daunting to the inexperienced so my...

It is right in the middle of the vibrant city and, apart from the cold and darkness of the place (problems which the staff sorted), one of the best places we have stayed in. Food is a bit bland, same stuff for breakfast every day which we helped by taking in our own dates and bananas) but on the whole...

We recently spent 5 nights in Riad Shama and it was one of the best experience I ever had in an hotel in my life. The staff is amazing and very helpful, even if with some communications problem as we don't speak french. The overall atmosphere is quiet (except for the calling to the prayer every hour but well..we are...

We stayed at Riad Shama from a week over Christmas holidays. Love the serenity and beauty of the Riad. The rooms are nice and comfortable and service is amazing. The rooms get cold at nights (especially december) but you can ask for fire place to be lit and make the room warm and cozy. Everyone at the Riad is very...

You know that saying that goes “you only appreciate what you had once its gone”, well this riad was one of those after we had to find another riad. We originally booked the riad just for é nights after deciding that we would do the sahara dessert 2day, 1 night execution but then we changed our mind as the bigger...

An oasis just on the edge of the medina which allows taxis to get relatively close to the hotel (1 minute walk). Superb grounds with a beautiful roof-top terrace and tranquil courtyard and spacious rooms. Unfortunately, the man on duty spoilt our stay with painfully poor service. We waited at least half an hour to get waited on for dinner...

On a special break to celebrate our silver wedding in september. She who must be kept happy wanted to try a bit of excitement and adventure. So four nights in Marrakech at the Riad Shama..
