Riad Nora
Ranked #198 of 500 Hotels in Marrakech
Reviewed 1 November 2015

On a intricate, labyrinth of narrow alleys nearby the city center you will find a heavy wooden door. Behind it lies the richly decorated Riad (Moroccan patio), with a small fountain/pool in the center an lofty green terraces. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are clean. Staff is incredibly friendly and always willing to brew some fresh mint tea for the guests. Seemed to me they worked really long shifts though.

The downsides are an array of minor Moroccan quirks, such as doors that jam or will not close properly and delays on the serving of breakfast. The WiFi had a very short range and could only be accessed from the patio.

Summing it up, a lovely experience.

We only stayed one night here but we wished we had time to stay longer. Riad Nora is perfectly located near the main square. The surrounding little streets are clean and safe. It is beautifully decorated and has a really tranquil feel to it. The rooms are lovely and the whole place is lit with nice Moroccan lamps. The people are very friendly too. I would highly recommend it.

A beautiful riad, in an ideal location. Aziz and Mohammed were very helpful, always smiling and made our stay special in the heart of Marrakech. Our pick up and drop off at the airport was arranged for us as well as a delicious welcome meal. The riad is an incredibility relaxing place, where you can loose yourself in the beautiful surroundings with Atlas mountains in the background. We were greeted by a friendly smile every morning and breakfast was served on the stunning terrace, with any combination of food you wished for. Our hamman treatment was recommended and booked for us as well as advice on how much we should barter for specific goods at the local market! We spent most afternoons relaxing on the terrace, truly immersing ourselves in the tranquil settings. I couldn't recommend Riad Nora more highly, we are already planning our next visit soon!

We stayed three nights at Riad Nora and wished we could have stayed longer. Aziz and Mohammed were very helpful and attentive to our needs throughout our stay. They arranged our pick up and drop off to the airport, made dinner reservations, and reservations for us at a hammam. We were stayed in the Coloniale suite which they kindly arranged to accommodate four beds for us. Our breakfast was delivered on time and on the terrace overlooking Marrakech with the snow-capped Atlas mountains in the background. We spent a lot of time lounging on the terrace, it truly felt like an oasis. It was perfect for a ladies weekend of relaxation! I highly recommend Riad Nora.

We decided to spend Christmas abroad and knowing that there are not many warm places within reasonable distance from the UK settled on Morocco as it has good temperatures in December.
We chose Marrakech as it is a good base for activities as well as being a tourist capital. Once you have made these decisions the choice is to stay in the old town or the newer city hotels. If you want to be close to the real Marrakech then you really should stay in a the old town, known as the Medina and try and book a guest house knows as Riads. We booked Riad Nora and found it to be a n authentic and comfortable place with rooftop terraces and charming courtyard. All the rooms are very authentic but have the modern fittings of hot showers, safes, wifi and air conditioning/heating for hot and cold days. Riad Nora is serviced 24 hours and anything we required was on hand, booking taxi's to guides or excursions to other places. We had a traditional evening meal on the first night which was excellent as were the daily included breakfasts.
