What Past Guests Are Saying
Beautiful Riad, Great Service
Our family of 7 rented the Riad Naila for four nights right before Christmas - it was our first stop in Morocco. It is a beautifully restored and maintained Dar. Abdul and his wife were there every morning. Breakfasts were sumptuous and a first night dinner was a delicious and well presented way to begin our trip. There were no downsides to any thing about the Riad. Rather, lessons for us - with very poor French, we should have had a good French/English dictionary. We also should have arranged a tourguide for our first day in Marrakech as we did later in Fez. We should have come with better maps, but were grateful to find some in the Riad. Marrakech was our least favorite place because of the intensity of the touts and the motorcycles. That said, everything we arranged through the Riad - transport, food, laundry - was exceptional. The recommended spa, which we visited, will live in family mythology as a great good value experience. I highly recommend this Riad and thank aleksander, Abdul and his wife for our wonderful visit. Just a note that it was the only place we stayed where I found a hairdryer - a nice surprise.

An oasis in the hustle and bustle of Marrakech
We have just returned from a most enjoyable holiday in Morocco. Our brief stay in Marrakesh was made all the more enjoyable by having such a wonderful place to stay. From the moment we stepped into Riad Naila we were impressed by the tranquility and comfort of the surroundings. Riad Naila provided an oasis to the hustle and bustle of Marrakesh and we were able to relax on the beautiful sun terrace and enjoy the sounds of the medina. We were delighted to discover the resident tortoise and she benefited from slices of cucumber and peaches during our stay.
The Riad encapsulates the atmosphere of Morocco and is tastefully decorated with local artefacts. Each of the four bedrooms have a different feel and charm. The central courtyard is a pleasant place to eat meals and relax.
Abdul and his wife were charming and made us feel most welcome; they obviously work hard to ensure the Riad is kept clean and comfortable.
The Riad is a ten to fifteen minute walk from the main square taking you through the delightful labyrinth of the souk. It is great fun discovering all the different sights and smells en route and we felt safe at all times.
We will treasure the memories of our stay.
Excellent stay, great hospitality
I booked the riad after reading the positive reviews, and I wasn't disappointed. The riad caretaker, Abdel and his wife were amazing. As there was 7 in the group, there was plenty of room in the riad for all of us. I loved the roof terrace, great place to relax after long day at souks. Only small let down was that two of the rooms had no air conditioning, therefore could make life slightly difficult if you were to stay here over summer period. Other than that, can't fault this little gem, will definitely return on my next trip.
geschmackvoll und persĂ¶nlich eingerichtetes Riad in der Medina a
Bei allen Fragen konnten wir Bezugspersonen kontaktieren, wurden sofort bedient. Wir haben uns absolut sicher und gut betreut gefĂĽhlt. Dadurch, dass das Riad im Herzen der Medina liegt, konnten wir einen sehr guten Eindruck vom wirklichen Leben in Marrakesch gewinnen.
Das Riad ist sehr liebevoll und persĂ¶nlich eingerichtet, alles ist vorhanden, was es fĂĽr einen angenehmen aufenthalt braucht.
5 Stars ; Special ; Exotic ; Worry free
We had a wonderful stay in Riad Naila and our family enjoyed it thoroughly. Riad Naila really made us feel at home (especially the kids), thanks to the caring service provided by abdel and Najoua. Also, Kamal the recommended taxi owner made our trip worry free by taking us around to the right places on all the days we were there. Could you please convey our gratitude and thanks to Kamal, Abdel, and Najoua for taking care of us so well.
Many thanks to the owner for being very thoughtful and arranging a baby chair at a short notice even though we did not expect it. We hope to go back to Marrakech and hope to be guests at Riad Naila again.
The owner has very helpful, responded to all queries and made sure every detail is taken care of.
Located in the Medina, Riad Naila is perfectly located in tranqu
We were three couples renting the Riad Naila which was located at the north end of the Medina in a quiet residential area 5 minutes from the Souk. The riad is very well positioned within a tranquil and friendly neighborhood. The owner sent us a comprehensive list of airport instructions, directions, suggestions, and important cell phone numbers for our stay in Marrakech. He made our airport taxi arrangements and organized our dinner for the first day. His staff, Abdel and Najoua who managed the house and prepared our daily breakfasts and occasional dinners were very helpful and Najoua is an exceptionally good cook. The meals were not included in the riad rental but were well worth their cost. The Riad was comfortable with lots of private spaces within. The roof top terrace was large with beautiful potted plants and a nicely designed shaded area for gathering. Three of the bedrooms were a good size and two had en suite bathrooms. The 4th bedroom is a single. Although we could have had all of our meals on the terrace, the weather was unseasonably cool with some rain. The central courtyard on the ground floor had been made into a large dining area which suited us perfectly.
We had a very comfortable stay in the Riad Naila. It was the perfect size for two or three couples or a family. We would definitely rent it again and recommend it highly.
This riad was better than we could have imagined. The pictures looked gorgeous but the reality was even better.
The riad is spacious and beautifully decorated. The roof terrace is absolute luxury and the housekeepers are wonderful.
The riad offers peace and tranquility after a busy day in the souks. It was a lovely haven to come home to.
We really could not fault it in any way. A perfect place to stay in Marrakecha and worth ever penny. The Riad owners are also extremely helpful and ensure you feel comfortable with all the arrangements for your stay.
M/any thanks for an amazing trip.
Bezauberndes Riad - ideal fĂĽr Familien oder Gruppen
Wir haben das Riad mit einem befreundeten Paar gemietet. Es ist gerĂ¤umig: 4 Schlafzimmer mit individuellen BĂ¤dern, KĂĽche (Nespresso mitnehmen), Dachterrasse, Innenhof und vielen Nischen zum Verweilen, Lesen, Diskutieren...zum Planen von Exkursionen (gut auch das schnelle Wifi). Das Hauswartspaar ist unendlich nett, wohnt etwas abseits, aber steht "24-Stunden-am-Tag" zur VerfĂĽgung. Wir haben uns von abdelhakim und seiner Frau mit FrĂĽhstĂĽck verwĂ¶hnen lassen.
Bei einem Riad stellt sich immer die Frage: Findet man es? Kann man von dort her die SehenswĂĽrdigkeiten erschliessen? Ein klares und mehrfaches Ja: 1. holt einen das Hauswartspaar beim Taxistand Sidi Benslimane ab 2. hat das Besitzerpaar eine exzellente Dokumentation (Englisch) geschrieben mit einem auch fĂĽr Nicht-OrientierungslĂ¤ufer lesbaren Situationsplan (wir kĂ¶nntens nicht besser...) 3. Liegt das Riad in der NĂ¤he der Moschee Sidi Benslimane und einem Taxistand, so dass nicht nur die Medina mit SehenswĂĽrdigkeiten leicht erschlossen werden kann, sondern auch mit den Petit Taxis (Bitte ZĂ¤hler einschalten...dafĂĽr Trinkgeld) kleine oder den Grand Taxis grosse Exkursionen durchgefĂĽhrt werden kĂ¶nnen (m. E. Must: Abend in Essaouira, oder ĂĽber den atlas aid Benhaddou...Ourikatal). Wir haben wie immer in Marrakech ein auto bei Medloc ab Flughafen gemietet , die ParkgebĂĽhren ĂĽber Nacht sind minim...aber anfĂ¤nger sind besser bedient mit den Petit Taxis oder dem riadempfohlenen Chauffeur. FĂĽr Golfer vielleicht den Tipp, den Golfsack z. B. in amelkis im abstellraum zu lassen, dann muss er nicht hin- und hergeschleppt werden...was natĂĽrlich auch ginge.
Was ist das alleinstellungsmerkmal dieses Riads? Man fĂĽhlt sich - zeitlich befristet - wie ein Besitzer eines wunderbaren Riads, das man mit Freunden, mit der Familie...teilt. FĂĽr Familien und Gruppen, die gemeinsam in der Medina die Stadt erkunden wollen, gibt's nichts Bezaubernderes.
Trotz wunderbarer Terrasse: Es ist nicht die schĂ¶nste aussicht (Altstadt, Atlas, Palmeraie) eines Riads.

A home away from homw
My family and I had a wonderful stay at Riad Naila. I was very pleased with the reservation process and the information provided prior to our arrival. We were welcomed by the caretaker abdel and his wife who cooked a delicious breakfast for us each morning ( optional). The house is very comfortable and an oasis of peace not far from the souks and other attractions in Marrakech.
Thanks again from a memorable holiday !
Marrakesch --- ein Traum
Wir, 3 Schwestern mit 4 ihrer erwachsenen Kinder, sind voller Erwartungen nach Marrakesch gereist. Unsere Vorstelungen wurden ĂĽbertroffen. Das Riad Naila mit Nashua und abdel boten uns ein Ort der Ruhe nach den langen FussmĂ¤rschen in der Stadt. Beim betreten des Riad's erĂ¶ffnet sich ein kleines MĂ¤rchen in das man eintauchen kann. Es ist sauber und es hat alles was man braucht um einige Zeit bestens in Marrakesch verweilen zu kĂ¶nnen. Nashua hat uns jeden Tag ein wunderbares FrĂĽhstĂĽck serviert und die Tagine und das Couscousse zum Dinner waren sehr schmackhaft. Abdel erfĂĽllte uns jeden Wunsch. Danke abdel, danke Nashua. Wir kĂ¶nnen die Unterkunft mit samt Service jedermann weiterempfehlen und wĂĽrden uns freuen, eines Tages an diesen Ort zurĂĽckkehren zu dĂĽrfen.
The location was wunderful and we were very well hosted
We liked it so much at Riad Naila, we were very much cared by abdel and his girlfriend.
Kamal was an excellent driver. Altogether a wonderful experience, we'll come again!
Beautifully-decorated, spacious house in a wonderful location
We spent one week in Riad Naila and can highly recommend it. There were 4 young children in our party (aged 7, 6, 4 and 3) and they loved having so much space to run around and play in. The bedrooms are all comfortable and beautifully-decorated. The living areas are also very comfortable - we loved the roof terrace and the courtyard patio. The library was great when it got cool in the evening. Abdel and Najoua who were on hand to help out during our stay were friendly and extremely helpful. The kids loved them! We paid for them to make us a delicious breakfast on a couple of occasions. The Riad has all the facilities you could want including the biggest bath I've ever seen! The location is fabulous - away from the hustle and bustle of the souks and the centre but it is a very short walk to everything you need. If you choose Riad Naila for your stay you will not be disappointed.
Riad Naila is lovely, with tasteful decor, all the amenities, and a serene terrace. Wonderfully, the riad is at the end of a long passageway, far from the motor bikes and traffic sounds of the medina. Even so, it's a short, pleasant walk to the souqs and all the action in the medina. I have stayed there twice, both times with different visitors and their families, and hope to stay there again on my next trip. You will enjoy your stay there without a doubt! Oh, and don't miss the lovely breakfast.

We had a wonderful time in Marrakech, staying at the Riad Naila. The Riad is perfectly located, just a few steps from the Medina, yet absolutely quiet. You enjoy complete privacy in a tastefully decorated traditional Maroccan home. Unlike in other Riads you have the whole place for yourself when you rent it. The house is well equipped, there is plenty of space to relax, a wonderful patio to have drinks or dinner and a magnificent rooftop terrace to unwind after a busy day in town. The service is very discrete, yet abdul, the caretaker, and his wife Najoua who live next door are always there if you need any help. We look forward to being back soon!

Ein besonderes Erlebnis
Wir verbrachten eine schoene, erlebnisreiche Zeit in diesem traditionellen, geschmackvoll eingerichteten Riad. Mit Kindern und Jugendlichen, zudem das erste Mal in Marokko schaetzten wir die Praesenz von abdel und Najouja, die nebenan wohnten und die wir stets Verschiedenes fragen konnten. Sie kochten auch auf Wunsch oder bereiteten Fruehstueck vor. Ein Ort zum zurueckkehren.
das riad mit der wundersch?nene terasse, dem traumhaften patio, den sch?nen, individuell eingerichteten schlafzimmern werden wir ganz sicher wieder aufsuchen! danke f?r die super woche!
Wir fuehlten uns wie in einem Maerchen aus 1001 Nacht!
Von der Organisation des Taxis, Kamal und sein Bruder Mohamed sind sehr freundliche und zuvorkommende Fahrer!, bis zum Eintreffen im Riad hat alles super geklappt. Das Riad Na?la ist ein Traum, die Einrichtung, das ambiente, der Komfort, es gibt nichts zu beanstanden. Abdel und Najoua kuemmern sich liebevoll um das Riad und seine Gaeste. Wir empfehlen das Riad Na?la sehr gerne weiter!
Great time in a lovely, spacious and clean traditional Riad. Abdul, Najoua and Kamel ensured that we had a great holiday, with good food, information and guidance.
We ( 4 adults, 3 kids and 1 baby ) enjoyed the charm, the service and cooking of the housekeeper abdel and his family plus the very helpfull hints of the owner as an outstanding base in exciting Marrakech:
Absolutely recommendable, but don't tell everybody: otherwise we will never find bookable time there again...
beautiful and calm riad for a 3 generation family
The trip to Marocco we liked a lot, when we arrived in Marrakesh we felt immeditley comfortable in the house. It is perfect for a small group up to 8 persons.
You can pass a whole day in the house, also to work, to read, to relax.
Marrakech and the Riad is absolutely amazing! The Service is great. Very kind people. We've never seen a City like Marrakech before. We will may come next year again.
It is even better than the pictures
Often a place doesn't live up to the promotional pictures seen in advance - Riad Naila was much better! It's well located within the medina and is an absolute oasis. We had arranged for a dinner to be prepared on the first night by the manager abdul, and the setting was really magical in such a superb riad. We loved Morocco and we fell in love with Riad Naila. The owner, Aleksander, also did much beforehand to ensure our stay was so good.
lovely place to stay
The professional and wonderful customer service we received from alex (the owner) prior to our arrival was superb. The Riad's keeppers were wonderful - very helpful and nothing too much trouble - we dint speak any French and we still manage to communicate. The breakfast at the riad was fabulous. the donwside (if it is) is that it can be a bit daunting for some people to walk through the dark alleys to get to the house. you get used to it. we hired the driveer alex recommended and it was worth it.
Thank you Riad Naila

The photos do not do justice to this lovely riad...to arrive after a long trip and walk into a magical space was very welcoming and exciting.There was only 2 of us, however, all 4 bedrooms have a lovely feeling along with their own bathroom. The roof top for breakfast was a treat...as well as a afternoon siesta.
The mgr abdel and his girlfriend were very accomodating, The guide for the Medina was recommended to us called aziz, he is a must..212-(0) 661 16 52 63...
Beautiful oasis of calm and yet so close to the bustle
We arrived after dark and that first short walk at night down the dimly lit, winding alleyways to get to the Riad was slightly scary; but we were well rewarded when we arrived at our destination.
The warm welcome we received from abdel and Najoua (the Riad caretaker and his girlfriend) along with the meal we'd arranged to be provided on that first night (tajine de boeuf aux pruneaux) was magnificent and a great start to the holiday. The Moroccan breakfast we'd organised for the following day was a real treat and one I'd recommend.
Najoua looked after us excellently, advising of places to go and prices to aim for when haggling!
It's not often that the photos match the reality but Riad Naila delivers. The rooms are gorgeous and the bathrooms a stylish mix of traditional and modern. It is a truly beautiful oasis of tranquillity just a five minute walk away from the souks leading to the hub-bub of Jemaa el Fna and the city.
We had a fantastic time and feel privileged to have stayed here. We would like to extend our thanks to abdel and Najoua once again and hope to return before too long.
We will certainly be recommending Riad Naila to family and friends.
Das Riad ist zentral gelegen, so dass man die ganze altstadt zu Fuss erkunden kann. Sehr sauber und gut organisiert.
Auf der Dachterrasse kann man fantastisch frÃ¼hstÃ¼cken oder am abend relaxen. Die atmosphÃ¤re ist toll.
Zentral gelegen , trotzdem sehr ruhig. WunderschÃ¶nes Haus. Sauber. Feines morgenbuffet zubereitet von adel und Najoua , sind sehr zuverlÃ¤ssig .
The best way how to relax in the medina of marrakech
Wonderful house. Great location (in an authentic neighbourhood but still in walking distance to the main attractions). The caretakers who speak French are most helpful, so is also a driver who can be booked for out of town trips. We especially appreciated the fact to "order in" the most delicious Tajines and Couscous which we ate on the terrace, thus relaxing after a day discovering Marrakech.
Riad Naila suits sophisticated travellers who appreciate comfort and typical but not over the top surroundings.

Outstanding Value - Wonderful Stay
This was our first trip to Marrakesh, and we didn't know what to expect. We were met at the airport, taken to the Riad, and were greeted and settled in comfortably. This riad is conveniently located and a 10 minute walk from the souks and the square. It was very clean and nice, and provided the security that I wanted for the 5 of us. Having it as an exclusive rental was very nice. The temperature was cool in May when we were there. During the hotter months it is possible that it may become somewhat uncomfortable. We loved it, and will stay there again.
Was wir in unserer Ferienwoche in Marrakech erleben durften war einfach grandios! Es war fĂĽr mich, meine Frau und unsere beiden TĂ¶chter (12 und 16-jĂ¤hrig) sehr interessant, diese Stadt in ihren vielseitigen Facetten erleben zu kĂ¶nnen. Es hat alles wie von Ihnen vorgĂ¤ngig beschrieben geklappt und wir waren bestens aufgehoben. Das Riad Naila ist wunderschĂ¶n und ich bin beinahe versucht, einen Kurs in Tadelakt-Technik zu belegen, um vielleicht irgendwann mal in den eigenen 4 WĂ¤nden so schĂ¶n leben zu kĂ¶nnen... Ihre Tipps betreffend Transporte und Gestaltung des aufenthaltes haben uns sehr genutzt - besten Dank! Das Kamal-Taxi hat uns an so manches Ort gefĂĽhrt, ja sogar bis zur KĂĽste (die Preise scheinen allerdings gestiegen zu sein). Und es waren beileibe nicht nur Taxi-Fahrten, sondern ausflĂĽge mit Reiseleitung sozusagen! Und im Haus schmeckte uns das Tajin, welches uns von abdel serviert wurde ausgezeichnet. Wir waren rundum zufrieden und werden ganz bestimmt wieder in diese Stadt zurĂĽckkehren - natĂĽrlich ins Riad Naila!!

This is our second time in this wonderful Moroccan Riad and in Marrakech. Riad Naila is most suitable for a peaceful break from our busy life habits in Switzerland. Especially the facinating colors - in Switzerland often grey and green outside - and here in the Riad spicy and warm. We also appreciated the kindness of Najoua and abdel, the guardien couple, who keep the Riad in a pleasant, clean and welcoming atmosphere. We also appreciated Kamals politness and calmness as a chauffeur and guide to the atlas mountains and the surroundings of Marrakech. We are longing to return!
Safe Haven amidst the lively Medina
Terrific Riad in the middle of the Medina that proofed to be an absolutely quiet, spacious home and safe haven from the vibrant street life in Marrakesh.
A peaceful oasis in a city full of life
Riad Naila is a very pleasant and comfortable place to stay.
Beautifully furnished a very clean and comfortable place.A well equiped kitchen, individually decorated rooms and a fantastic terrase invite you to linger around. It's a peaceful oasis in this busy noisy colourful city.We enjoyed a very warm welcome and the caretakers are extremly friendly. Every moment was a real pleasure .
colourfull, spicy, hot, gorgeous
Ein wunderschÃ¶n ausgestattetes Riad mit vielen liebevollen Details. Viel Platz, um sich zu verweilen. Sehr freundliche, zurÃ¼ckhaltende und hilfsbereite "caretakers".

Lyss in der Schweiz
nach 9 wunderschĂ¶nen Tagen in Ihrem Riad sind wir gestern wieder in der Schweiz gelandet.
Wir fĂĽhlten uns vom ersten Augenblick wie zuhause, das Riad ist mit viel Liebe ausgestattet, jeder Raum individuell gestaltet, ein kleines Bijou!!!!
Schon am zweiten Tag fanden wir alleine durch die kleinen, verwinkelten GĂ¤sschen bis zum Platz Djemna el Fna und konnten uns total frei bewegen und das Leben in vollen ZĂĽgen geniessen.
Im Riad wurden wir jeden Morgen von Abdel Hakim mit einem super FrĂĽhstĂĽck verwĂ¶hnt;er hat eine sehr angenehme, unaufdringliche Art, ist aber immer zur Stelle, sollte ein Problem auftreten.
Najoua rĂ¤umte uns jeden Tag das Zimmer auf, so lieb!
Am Flughafen wurden wir wie abgemacht von Kamal erwartet und wir kĂ¶nnen ihn auch fĂĽr weitere Strecken total empfehlen.
Wie gesagt, wir fĂĽhlten uns einfach rundum wohl und kehrten mit viel Sonne im Herzen in die Schweiz zurĂĽck (wo uns der Regen empfing,ha,ha)
Trip of a lifetime
The photos on the website do not do justice to this lovely Riad. This was our first trip to Marrakech, and it far exceeded our expectations. My husband and I, along with our four children aged 4-12 had the perfect base to explore the city. Since you rent the entire house, my boisterous kids were able to explore the nooks and crannies of the "palace" without us worrying about their laughter or loud voices disturbing other guests. In the evening, my husband and I were able to relax and enjoy a glass of wine in the courtyard while the kids played games, and in the mornings the entire family ate breakfast on the roof terrace and fed the turtles.
The location is close enough to the souks that we walked everywhere. We felt safe and pampered. The Riad itself is spacious, with a well equipped kitchen, charming courtyard and roof terrace. I felt as if I were in an Architectural Digest feature about Morocco. Abdel the caretaker was very helpful, and met us when we arrived after our overnight train ride to lead us to the Riad.
What a wonderful place. We will be back as soon as possible!

Eine Oase in der Medina von Marakesch
Was wir vorfanden hat all unsere Erwartungen ĂĽbertroffen. Ein Haus mit Charakter, grosszĂĽgig ausgestattet,mit vielen Ecken und Winkeln zum verweilen,sehr guten Betten und einer tadellos funktionierenden Infrastruktur. Sehr sauber.Ein Hausmeister/Reinigung welche sehr zuvorkommend und hilfsbereit ihre Dienste auf Wunsch anbieten.Ein absolut ruhiger Ort in einer sehr lebendigen Stadt wie Marakesch es ist.Wir werden gerne wieder kommen.
Our stay at Riad Naila was above and beyond all of our expectations. The riad itself was beautiful and featured traditional Moroccan design features as well as all of the modern conveniences that added to the comfort of our stay.
The location of Riad Naila was also perfect. It is situated down a narrow, quiet walkway yet is a comfortable walk to most of the interesting sites in Marrakech.
Treat yourself to Riad Naila - you won't be disappointed.

Fantastic once and then again!
I spent at week at Riad Naila in November with my girlfriend. We had been there before in January 2008 and we loved it so much we went back again! It is a lovely riad in the medina in Marrakech. You really get a feel for what Moroccan life staying there. The riad is very spacious and can accommodate 3 couples at least. The terrace was our favorite place to hang out particularly in the morning. The warm sun, coffee, breakfast and fresh squeezed orange juice just started the day off right. We would often lounge around and read in the afternoon if we wanted a break from the souks. In the evening, we often sat on the paio with candles lit and looked up at the stars while enjoyed some wine and olives. Everything worked well and there is even wireless internet this time! When we were there in January it was a bit chilly at night but now there are nice space heaters in all of the bedrooms and a big one on the patio. There is also a heatlamp on the terrace. So it didn't really matter that it was winter (daytime temperatures were in the 70s-low 80sF; nightime would drop into the 40s at times. I can't wait to go back again!
wir stehen zwar noch unter kulturschock und leiden an akuter unterkĂĽhlung hier in der schweiz. doch die erinnerungen an marrakech wĂ¤rmen uns - ganz besonders jene an euer charmantes riad. versteckt am ende einer verschlungenen gasse Ă¶ffnet sich ein geheimnisvolles reich. und mit ihm die sinne. der idyllische innenhof, die elegante offene galerie im mittelteil, die liebevoll gestalteten zimmer und die traumhafte dachterrasse bergen nur eine gefahr: dass man auf den souk verzichtet und ganz einfach in dieser oase bleibt, wo man sich so gut erholen kann. auch dank der herzlichkeit der beiden guten geister abdel und ajoya. herzlichen dank, dass wir in eurem paradies hausen duften! mirjam & matthias
A fairy tale palace!
If anyone wants the excitement, adventure, and something mystical, Marrakesh is the city to visit! And if anyone wants to come back to a place after all the excitement and adventure of Marrakesh after a long day of sightseeing, Riad Naila is the place! This is a fairy tale palace! We (my wife and daughter) loved the space and magical Riad Naila every second that we were there! I recommend Riad Naila for anyone who wants to experience a mystical and magical time. We will definitely visit the Riad again in the near future.
