    The Gem Riad is a real Gem!

    We had the most wonderful stay at the Gem Riad and we couldn’t recommend it more highly. The staff were incredibly friendly, warm and welcoming. They made you feel really at home. The room was beautiful, everything spotlessly clean with everything thought of. The Riad is very conveniently placed, a short walk from the souks and tourist attractions alike. It was a truly memorable holiday made even better by our stay in the Gem Riad.

    Oussama and Youness made us feel really welcome and were always very accommodating. They took very good care of us. We saw Ali sometimes too and he was always very helpful. They were very good hosts.

    The Gem Riad was a great place to stay in order to be in the middle of the action in Marrakech. Khaled was fantastic and made sure that our family was always comfortable. I recommend Gem Riad highly!

    Está muy bien ubicado, el trato es excelente. Los desayunos son muy completos. El día de irnos, como nuestro vuelo salía tarde nos dejaron quedarnos en una habitación para descansar y ducharnos, se agradecen esos gestos. En definitiva, todo perfecto y sin duda repetiriamos.

    Das Gem Riad ist ein kleines sehr versteckt gelegenes Riad in Mitten der Altstadt von Marrakech. Die Lage ist perfekt, da alle wichtigen Sehenswürdigkeiten der Stadt zu Fuß gut erreichbar sind. Wir hatten zu viert in einer Suite und waren mit dem Zimmer sehr zufrieden! Die Ausstattung war schön und das Personal zu jeder Tages- und Nachtzeit sehr zuvorkommend!

    Excellent location in a quiet street. This is not a touristy spa, but a real riad. Ali and his team are amazing and they can help you with whatever your needs are. A special thanks goes to Abdul!

    Increíble! Ha sido genial!

    Gem Riad es un sitio increíble! Está en una zona privilegiada de la medina, a 5 minutos andando a la plaza. El Riad es nuevo, tiene todas las comodidades, la cama muy cómoda y todo impecable. El desayuno es abundante y todo riquísimo, y lo mejor de todo...el trato de las personas que trabajan allí. Wlid y Alí nos han hecho sentir como en nuestra casa. Si volvemos a Marrakech, no dudaremos en alojarnos en Gem Riad. El mejor viaje de mi vida!
