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, opulent room.

We had a great time in Marrakech and only regret not spening enough time relaxing at the Riad due to cramming in all the experiences of the Souks and the spa treatments. It is a real retreat from the chaos of Marrakech.

We ate on the first night and the food was better than that in one of the recommended restaurants in the medina. It was also very good value.

I would recommend a visit to the Hamman at Bains de Marrakech!

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 was beautifully decorated and the room we stayed in was lovely. The highlights for us were:

The terrace - a great view of the city and the Atlas Mountains; it was great catching some December sun.

The breakfast - fresh orange juice and lovely pancakes.

The staff - very friendly and efficient.

We would come back ? Yes ! Riad Shemsi was great and we both fell in love with Marrakech.

We've just returned from Marrakech where we stayed at the Riad Shemsi, its staff made us so welcome with their hospitality. They were, without exception, friendly and very helpful and made a hugh difference to our stay. We were very sad to be leaving and only wish we could have stayed longer.

The Riad itself is 'beautiful' once through the doors you are in a world of your own, the gently touches in each area only add to its pleasant atmospher, the lighting and decorate are elegantly and tastefully thought of. Its location is excellent and within easy reach to all the sights you would want to visit.

Would definately return to Riad Shemsi if we ever visit Marrakech again.

We are staying for 5 nights for our honeymoon and a birthday. . the staff are wonderfully welcoming. Nadia is a lovely, warm, understated lady who made us feel very welcome, along with the owners and also Hassan, who always found ways to make our stay that little bit more comfortable. We are staying in the canelle room on the ground floor next to the pool, and leaving tomorrow : (. . the riad is beautifully decorated and tres chic. The food at dinner is very fresh and healthily prepared. We were unlucky enough to have stayed when there were 2 days of rain (not a common occurence here in marrakech as i am told!). However on sunny days a spot of sunbathing on the rooftop terrace is perfectly. We hope to return here in June/May when the weather is hotter. The only set back was that the shower in our room tended to be a bit temperamental and the water wasn't hot for very long. . Next time we come we will try out the chocolate suite that we have heard so much about. . highly recommended. .

The Riad Shemsi provides a tranquil haven within the Medina of Marrakech. The english owners have produced a first class establishment. There is a roof terrace partly covered with a tent like shading overlooking the central courtyard. Our room, the tuquoise room on the first floor, was beautifully maintained and decorated and included a morrocan style ensuite with a spacious shower. The dinning area also overlooks the courtyard from the first floor and the decore creates a relaxing and hospitable atmosphere.
We have just spent a week from Boxing Day 2007 until January 2nd 2008. The staff are attentive and helpful at all times and the managers, Sarah and Nadia, provide advice and insights into the area, arrange day trips and taxi's and take bookings to eat at the Riad for dinner. We had New Year dinner there and the meal was outstanding. It was three courses with traditional moroccan starter and a beef tangine for the main with couscous, beans and a selection of wines. The desert was locally made icecream and a homemade moroccan style cake. All three courses were cooked to perfection, and with the setting made for a throughly enjoyable experience.
I would recommend the Shemsi without hesitation. .
