This Riad is absolutely stunning, beautiful, traditional decor and traditional food to match!

Breakfast was lovely with plenty of food -all traditional (which is exactly what you should want from a place like this!). We also ate here many times as the Moroccan dishes are the best we tasted and so traditional! They even let us buy one set menu for the two of us because there was too much for us! Although it is lovely to go out to visit other restaurants (we went to al fassia, woman's cooperative one and a French one in the new town), the traditional Moroccan is lovely in the hotel and VERY much recommended!

Lovely enough atmosphere at the hotel to relax on some of the days and close enough the the centre to visit all the sights and sounds (although bring comfy shoes as the walk is too long for impractical sandals!).

Recommend the YSL garden and the Badi palace as well as the obvious choice of the souks!

One of the owners (Robert) was staying at the same time as us and was an absolute joy, so helpful and down to earth and knew the little things to offer us to make the stay magical! The hotel staff also help when you arrive by giving you an annotated map of the city and guiding you on the best route to the attractions, this was unexpected but lovely to have and much appreciated as I can imagine it's a hard city to navigate without local insight!

Don't be put off when you arrive by the back alleys that lead to the front door! Once inside it's heaven and after the first few times of using the alleys it becomes easy to remember and find your way around. The locals are also all very friendly and never gave us any trouble and most smiled! So do not worry!

I recommend this whole heartedly and would love to go back myself!

Thanks to all at the riad and sorry for the late response!

Where to start ? Absolutely everything was just perfect during our stay at the Riad El Mansour. Mustafa, the driver was waiting for us when we arrived at the airport. Abdess greeted us when we arrived at the riad - what a beautiful and tranquil place in the midst of the craziness of the medina. Once inside you hear nothing but birds chirping. I was very impressed by what had been prepared for our arrival: a handwritten welcome note, a city map with all kinds of handwritten tips and suggestions and the way to the riad marked up. Abdess then showed us around the riad and went over the map with us giving us some more useful information during the conversation which came in very handy during our stay. The rooms are furnished and decorated which much care and taste and they are very clean and made up twice a day !! Fruit and nuts and pastries were offered every day in the room along with fresh flowers: absolutely lovely. It was my husband's birthday the day we arrived and he was presented a handwritten birthday card along with a bottle of wine and a homemade cake after dinner. That really made his day !
We had originally booked the room "Amethyst" which we loved and later we were even upgraded to the "Amber Suite" on the first floor which of course was also absolutely lovely and such a nice gesture.
Breakfast is wonderful and starting our day on the rooftop terrace every morning was a delight. We also had lunch and dinner at the riad when we weren't out and about and the food is marvelous - typical moroccan food that was delicious.
The best thing about this riad is the staff and their helpfulness. I have traveled to many countries and stayed in many places and I think it is safe to say I have never encountered people that were so friendly and willing and able to help and always with a smile. They were always there to give us directions or call for a cab and even made some phone calls for us when we ran into some small problems with an excursion we had booked from home. Mustafa, as well as the other cab driver they call in the evenings were not only very friendly and welcoming but also absolutely reliable. We had asked for a pickup from the bus and train station after the day trips we went on and every time Mustafa was already waiting for us upon arrival in Marrakech with a big smile on his face. Knowing he would be there to take us to the riad quickly after a long day of sightseeing made it all very relaxing for us - and all for a very good price.
I enjoyed an amazing massage on our last day which the riad also organized for me and was given in a nice cozy room at the riad. They supply bathrobes and slippers in the room, there is a hair dryer and wonderful bath supplies - you really needn't bring much.
There is a small gym on the top floor and they have common rooms where there are books to read, games to play and some travel guides for the area to peruse.
We booked this particular riad based on a recommendation by a co-worker of mine who had been there last fall. I am so glad he told us about this gem and am more than happy to recommend a stay there to all my friends as well.
Trust me, you can't go wrong if you stay there and will go back home with lots of good memories of your stay in Marrakech !! Thanks again for 5 wonderful days !!!

Room Tip: We stayed in the room "Amethyst" and loved it. It is nice and cool and it was very quiet.

We loved Riad El Mansour and would recommend it enthusiastically to any and all travelers. We were lucky to be at the riad during one of the owner Robert's periodic sojourns to Marrakech (he lives in Sitges, Spain), and he could not have been more helpful in orienting us and recommending activities and restaurants. The riad is beautifully appointed, and the hammam is truly marvelous. We enjoyed the full treatment, including a rather intense exfoliating scrub down in the hammam and a sixty minute massage shortly thereafter. Given the crazy energy and occasional mayhem of amazing Marrakech, these treatments were all the more splendid. The food at the hotel's excellent restaurant could not be fresher. The chicken tajine with preserved lemons and olives was the best we had in Morocco.

Robert has assembled a first-rate staff. Mustafa, the riad's driver, was among the friendliest people we met during our ten-day visit to Morocco. Mustafa drove us down to the Ourika Valley the Atlas Mountains for a splendid day trip and regaled us with stories of his family and information about the culture and history of Morocco. We loved his sunny disposition and would recommend his services with the greatest enthusiasm.

We loved our stay at Riad El mansour.

Room Tip: We loved the amber suite.

This hotel was just amazing. From the very warm welcome on arrival at midnight through to having your room made up twice a day. The staff really made this place so special, always willing to help and give advice when asked. Location is very good as it is a 10-15 minute walk from the main souk. There were some teenagers over the weekend which would pester you and not leave you alone as you enter the main street. Will definitely stay here again if we come back to Marrakech.

Room Tip: Amethyst room is spacious and beautiful, bathroom was great
