10/10 Exceptional

From the moment we were met at the door of Riad Melhoun we felt genuinely welcomed - such a lovely retreat from the madness of the Medina! The riad is beautiful - lovely intricate carvings with quiet nooks and crannies everywhere plus a magic roof-top retreat. Our room - Maya - was on the 2nd floor - spacious, really comfortable bed & pillows - and we couldn’t believe how quiet (& dark!) the room was - couldn’t even hear the calls to prayer. We had 2 dinners here - great meals - each dish explained & fantastic service. When I mentioned that I loved the olives in one of the salads, they bought another bowl of them! Direction wise we found it easy to find our way home after each day of wandering as it’s quite a direct walking route from the Jamaa fna square - after you’ve done it once! Also thoroughly recommend the spa & hammam- more like a western spa experience than a traditional hammam but with a little more nudity :)! We would come back to stay in a heart-beat!

I stayed for one night at the end of my time in Morocco in November. It was magical. I had a beautiful conversation about olives and eggplant one evening with Ahmed, and I had before me an eggplant vegetarian tagine breakfast extravaganza the next morning to my great surprise! This Riad was beyond expectation. They cared for my safety as a solo woman traveller and as a human being. A+

Impeccable service
The manager during our stay , Mohammed, made our stay extremely pleasant and unforgettable. He warmly greeted us at every chance he got , and really goes above and beyond to make sure you are happy. In terms of the actual room, it left something to be desired . The towels were all old and had holes in it. The air conditioning worked but was quite noisy. But everything else was solid ! Recommend this place if you’re looking for a budget stay with great customer service.

beautiful riad good location
Staff are friendly, dedicated, and hardworking professionals. My interaction with Mohamed, Tariks (two gentlemen), and Nor was great. Breakfast was delicious. Spa and hammam was clean and managed professionally. Location was walking distance to all actions. (Note there is a two minutes walk from hotel to the road with access to any car).

Gem in the Medina
This place is a beautiful gem with the friendliest staff in Marrakesh. Ahmed took very good care of us in the evenings and at morning breakfast. Isaam always had a smile and a greeting no matter what. I highly recommend this Riad in Marrakesh. Will definitely go back.

Riad Melhoun is a must stay if in Marrakech. The staff is very helpful, friendly and accommodating. That extra mile they go makes you feel like you are at a home away from home. Would definitely recommend to stay.
