Really great staff and good location near the bus station and grand taxis. Heating in the room could be better and a curtain for privacy for the bath tub is needed. Good breakfast, help booking tour and ordering pizza. Breakfast area was really cold.

Comfortable room, good location!
Service was excellent! We enjoyed the complimentary coffee/tea, and there were plenty of nearby bakeries to buy breakfast. The location was great, very walkable and near a metro station. The room was small, but as expected for Paris in this price range. The mattresses were extremely comfortable , and the blackout blinds were a great feature.

Comfortable Stay
We enjoyed our stay in Riad Shambala. It is conveniently located in the Medina and only about 15 minutes walk to the Marrakesh center. The courtyard was beautiful and room is comfortable. The staff was very friendly & welcoming, and they offer you moroccan tea whenever you come to the riad. Soufian gave us the map of the medina, showed us how to get to each of the important places and gave his phone number to contact him in case we are lost. Their complementary breakfast was very good. We also had dinner in the riad which was an excellent experience with delicious food in a pleasant and peaceful atmosphere. The only thing I would ask for is little more brighter lambs in the room.

Highly recommend
We loved our stay at this riad. It is a traditional riad and the room was not very spacious, but the service was exceptional and it was a near experience to stay there. The breakfast was fantastic too.

Bien. Aunque algo apartado de la plaza Jemma, lugar de referencia para todo ( zoco, ambiente...) está a mas de 30 minutos callejeando x la Medina ( x la noche es recomendable taxi , aun así hay q andar algo xq no pueden entrar a la Medina, x la noche algo inseguro). Desayuno casero y rico. Anfitriones muy agradables, siempre dispuestos a ayudarte , t ofrecen té continuamente cono simbolo de hospitalidad. Cama comodísima y sábanas muy agradables al tacto. Voy a poner peros, no hay bebidas ( salvo agua,) x si t apetece tomar un refresco en la terraza del riad. A la llegada tendrian q poner un par de botillas de agua en la habitación, mas productos de higiene , ta que en toda nuestra estancia apenas nos dieron 2 geles.
