Riad Lena & SPA
Ranked #160 of 1,172 Marrakech B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 April 2017

I recently stayed at the Riad Lena for the first three days of an amazing trip to Morocco with my husband, daughter, son in law, and granddaughter (almost three years old), and it could not have been nicer. The riad itself is beautiful and spotless. The manager and staff were so accommodating and went out of their ways to make us comfortable. The food was delicious - home-cooked and plentiful! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE RIAD LENA TO ANYONE WHO IS VISITING MARRAKECH. It's close to everything yet quiet and relaxing - quite different from the souk and square, which are so much fun.

Room Tip: Everything was great for us, so I don't really have any tips for improvement.

Having stayed here for just over a week, I must agree with other reviewers who praised the calmness of this Riad. It is only just off a busy part of the souks but once the door is shut, you wouldn't know. The terrace and hot tub are perfect for relaxing after a busy day and the staff, particularly the breakfast staff and staff on the terrace, can't do enough to help. The free wifi is intermittent and wasn't great in the last few days but that was really the only downside. If you're expecting it to be finished to high quality standard, you won't get that but as a base for exploring, you can't go wrong. A free massage is the associated spa and mint tea on arrival help too!

This Riad was 50 meters off a main passage. It was cool and tranquil inside you could have been a million miles for the markets & scooters.
Our room was one of the smaller rooms. (3 out of 10 are this size) It was perfectly comfortable, could have done with an extra light (warm yellow) as it was a bit on the dark side! If you want 4 star luxury then stay in the hotels outside the Median. This was not ruffing it by any means though. All Riad’s I understand have the same small issue of smelly drains, it wasn’t an issue that we really noticed anywhere in the room just a slight smell in the WC.
The Hotel Manager we had, Latif was really helpful and friendly like all the staff. The breakfast was good with Lovely pancakes & bread. A egg was also offered and was good. Fruit would have been nice to have as there is a lot around in the market so it must be available.
In summary a gem of a place to stay great as a base to explore from or as some guests did to chill on the roof terrace and enjoy the service of the Spa across the alley.

The staff received us with a nice tea and biscuits followed by 30 min. of a marvellous massage at their SPA.

I highly recommend having dinner at the Riad as the food is absolutely delicious! Breakfast was a good way to start the day before going out to explore. The Riad organised taxis, helped out with trips outside Marrakesh, booking trains and the manager gave great advices about how to explore the city.

The service overall was really good. We could relax from the vibrancy and noise of the Medina when needed. The SPA was a highlight, it was my first Hammam and a can't recommend it more!

Just be aware of the stairs, Riads request a lot of going up and down. Enjoy!

Room Tip: Keep the windows and door open for some time in order to air the room.

This lovely little Riad in the heart of Marrakesh is the best find, we were greeted with mint tea and biscuits which was nice after a tiring flight. The room was adorned with typical rich Moroccan decor, the bed was very comfy and the shower was warm, bathroom had shower jel, shampoo and body cream which I am guessing was from the Riad Lena spa as it smelt heavenly. The Riad is a ten minute easy walk to the Jemaa El Fnaa square, which is not far from El Badi Palace, De La Bahia Palace, the Koutoubia Mosque and the Saadiens Tombs. Riad Lena is also perfectly situated to find the Jardin Marjorelle a heaven from the busy souks. The staff were the most smiley happy people I have met in a hotel and nothing is too big to ask, breakfast was very delicious and a great setting to eat up on the sunny terrace. I highly recommend this hotel, Thank you to all the staff at this hotel keep up the good work!

Room Tip: All the rooms looked great at this hotel, so just go with what what is given.
