    Fabulous

    We appreciated the hospitalitiy,availability of staff.The incredibly quiet place to be downtown.Hotels with best finish.Excellent Moroccan cuisine.Recommended for those who want to live the medina without sacrificing the quiet evening

    Not easy to find if you arrive in the evening and without guidance.Booking is not always 'clear willingness on the' extra beds.So 'it happens that the hotel must improvise to suit the customer.

    Fabulous

    The riad is designed and decorated to a very high standard and gives you a great taste of Moroccan life/architecture/design. The terrace and courtyard provide ideal locations to escape the madness of Marrakech for a few hours every day. Plus with complimentary mint tea on offer you cannot lose! The riad is located within the Medina but not directly within the main souks or right by the square (10 min walk from main square) so it was good to not be right in the middle of things. A lot of people in Marrakech stay in budget places but if you are after something a little bit more special but that can be accommodated within your budget then this could be the riad for you.

    There was sometimes a damp smell within our room - nothing too overbearing but I imagine largely due to the design of the room - shower not in seperate room & no air flow (even the AC didn't get the smell away). The lane the riad is located at the bottom of isn't the nicest but it is well lit at night time and we had no trouble and always felt safe.

    Friendly staff although only one out of the two spoke English. Room was immaculate-fresh sheets every day. Good shower, well equipped with good hairdrier, toiletries. Helpfully recommended and booked good restaurants and Hammam.

    The owner (Ms Aouatif) is very helpful and has just the sweetest smile, she will help you with anything you need. We slept in the suite Racine, it has the most beautiful bathtub I've ever seen. As with all Riads, it is noisy but that's just the way these houses are built. If you read this Aouatif, thanks again for everything!

    Fabulous

    Felt like authentic Marrakech. Staff pleasant and helpful. Comfortable rooms with nice touches.

    Dark alleyways bit daunting at night! Important note is that this riad does not accept visa - they say they have told you before - but was considerable hassel getting cash - and we weren't the only couple having to do so.

    We stayed at Riad Ambre et Epice for 4 nights. Everything was just superb! It is a little oasis of peace in the middle of busy Marrakesh. The breakfast, the service , the room itself - were just perfect. In Europe you would pay double for this kind of accomodation, that's for sure. We also had diner at the riad, and again, we were very positively suprised as price/quality did not dissappoint us a minute. Should we be back to Marakesh - only this riad!

    Very good

    This is a beautiful Riad in the middle of the Medina. A little hard to find at first but you soon get the hang of the alleyways.

    Exclusive

    the friendlyness of all the staff and owner, the position in the town, right amongst the 'locals' which was lovely, as it gave the best impression of Marrakesh

    I would have liked to have seen a few books or magazines to read or look at in the evenings. perhaps the owner might like to ask each nationality to bring 1-2 books, which she would then purchase and ask to be left there for future guests?

    The location, the traditional meal, the breakfast, the room, the design of hotel.

    Superb

    Beautiful riad and rooms (Racine). The quality of the linen and towels are a real luxury.

    It takes a little while to orientate yourself in the city, but that would apply to most riads. It would help if a city map was provided on check-in.

    Superb

    The Riad is located in a very quite part of Marrakech. To come back after a busy day in town was always a pleasure. The Riad is nicely designed and very relaxing to stay in.

    The only negative point was the noise. The doors and windows are not sound proof and so in the morning you hear quite a lot of noises !

    Superb

    Beautiful historic building refurbished to high standards and quality, very peaceful, great food excellent staff and very clean. Set in a great location 15 min from the central areas of Marrakesh. A very peaceful standard Riad with helpful staff highly recommended.

    The manager was excellent and spoke several languages but more written information could be made available for consideration such as available trips meals etc.
