I must admit we were a little unsure at the beginning when the taxi driver stopped the car and started walking us up a few little alleys to the hotel, but when we arrived it was everything we could have wanted in a hotel! The staff are wonderful - very friendly and can't do enough for you. The room -...

My husband and I have just returned from a 5 night stay at the Riad Shemsi and want to go straight back. We stayed in the Chocolate Suite on the top floor and we thought it was absolutely great. You can open up the double doors, sit in the morning sunlight and read or just listen to the birds singing....

Riad Shemsi is a delightful and intimate hotel. The service is incredible, without the knowlegable and friendly staff we may have missed out on many of the finer details of the city. The rooms are extremely comfortable and beautifully decorated, as well as being priced very reasonably. We also ate in hotel on two occassions and the food was exemplary,...

This a very pleasant and relaxing place to retreat to from the manic street life of Marrakech. The staff are a particular strength, providing excellent advice and service. This part of Marrakech is a little short of places to eat (unless you are brave enough to use a street stall), so it was a 15 minute walk into the centre...

We have just returned from a 5 day stay at the Riad Shemsi. The Riad is magnificent and we have never experienced such incredible service before.From the time we arrived at the Riad, we met Nadia who showed us our rooms and were thereafter provided with the traditional mint tea. Miriam, Nadia (cook) and Lakshan looked after our every whim....

We've just got back from staying at the Riad Shemsi over valentines and it was absolutely lovely! The staff are so friendly and really go out of their way to help. The food is amazing!

I couldn't disagree with any of the previous comments, which we relied heavily on when selecting our accomodation. This Riad has been tastefully renovated, delightful rooms and spot on service. We stayed in the chocolate suite on the top floor of the Riad with direct access to the lovely terrace. I feel it was worth the extra for the spacious,...

A lovely riad in the heart of the Kasbah. The location was great; the Medina was walkable, approx 10 - 15 minutes, depending on how efficient you are in crossing the mad roads ! The Kasbah area was less 'touristy' and manic than the Medina so to come back to the riad after sightseeing was very restful. The riad itself...
