                      It was clean and very relaxing after a day touring Marrakech. The staff were excellent, friendly and very helpfull. We had two very nice meals at the Riad. I would recommend The Riad Alwachma to anyone wanting to visit Marrakech.

                      Myself and my sister had a winter weekend break and booked Riad Alwachma as the reviews were great. When we arrived at the airport we were met by the Riad's driver and taken to the hotel he was friendly and helpful and gave us a map of the city and pointed out interesting sights. On arrival at the Riad Helene met with us and checked us in whilst having a lovely mint tea and biscuits, we were shown to our room which was on the ground floor and it was lovely, decorated with great taste. The room was very comfortable had everything you need, tv, ac, hairdryer and a heater if you needed. We then went to explore the main square and after a 10 minute walk from the Riad we were in the middle of this amazing sense overload! We returned to the riad for dinner the first evening and it was fantastic we had 3 morrocan salads, chicken tagine with potatoes and a lovely fresh orange with chocolate for pudding. The breakfast at the Riad can be taken on the roof terrace or the courtyard we did both during our stay, breakfast was lovely fresh breads, coffee, eggs and yogurt with small pots of jam and butter it was served with a smile and the 2 guys who work there are amazing, very friendly helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We did a city exploring tour which lasted all day but saw all the sights and then on the return to the riad we had a hamman and massage which was well needed after a 9 hour walking tour of the city! All in all a great stay, really friendly staff, great location and I would recommend this to anyone.

                      Riad Alwachma is a delightful hotel with bundles of character and charm. The staff are very helpful and the food is good. The Hotel is 5 mins from the main market/souk in marrakesh which is brilliant.

                      Beautiful oasis of relaxation in the heart of chaotic Marrakesch. Lovely architecture. I loved the little garden-courtyard and the simple, fine traditionally Moroccan style of the rooms. Staff extremely friendly and welcoming, yet in a typically relaxed, slow-motion Moroccan way. Do not expect the fake, impersonal, efficiency of a Hilton hotel. Things there are going to be done with a smile -after the prayer, if that is due - and with no rush. Maybe in the meanwhile you can have a cup (or a quarter of a cup) of the traditional mint tea with home made cookies in the courtyard...Welcome to Morocco!

                      The beauty of the place lies in the fact that it is right in the middle of the old city, Medina. But be prepared to a proper maze-game to go back to the hotel, especially overnight. We got lost a few times, and when it is dark and late...

                      The owners and staff were very helpful and went out of their ways to ensure you well happy and enjoying your stay. The food is excellent, but you must request to have dinner served in the morning right after breakfast. Free WiFi, but eco-lighting makes it hard to see keyboard, eco-lighting is very good for romance if you are a couple

                      Not much I did not like, but it is a little hard to find, if you ask for directions to the Mosquee de Doukkala or La Maison Restaurant the cab drivers will know where you want to go! It can get a little noisy, but that is the guest coming back in from having fun out on the town and not the riad's fault There is no riad car parking, so you must park at the Mosquee de Doukkala concession area lot about 75 yards away.

                      People were extremely friendly and helpful, the place was a delight in terms of traditional design and layout and the view of the snow capped mountains from the terrace should not be missed.

                      The traditional Morrocan dinner should possibly be avoided.

                      This Riad is amazing, really nice and comfortable. You'll feel you're in a real Marrocian house. You'll appreciate the privacy and silence in the hotel after a walk in the noisy souk. The staff is really kind and helpfull, specially Amin. We definetly recommend!

                      Everything was perfect.

                      The staff were very helping and the room was superb.

                      The location was not as good as others I had throughout Morocco (not as centrally located), I had to walk a bit to get to the heart of the medina and the Djemaa El Fna square. I never had a problem walking by (night or day) though.

                      Attractive and clean room, tasty breakfast on terrace and very kind stuff. Riad has very good location to explore old Marrakech. I will absolutely recommend Riad Alwachma if you are looking for traditional Riad inside medina.

                      Large, clean bedroom and bathroom, up to date fixtures and furnishings. Small TV, ample closet and storage space, very atmospheric with Moroccan fixtures and furnishings. The bathroom was roomy and had a large shower stall with bench. There was no shower curtain, but the stall was large enough so that a careful person would not get water all over the place. Lots of counter space next to the sink for toiletries, and plenty of towel bars and hooks. Good wifi and lighting in the bedroom. Breakfast consisted of juice, coffee, small yogurt, fried bread, pastries and regular bread. Another morning we had eggs in place of pastries. Very pleasant and helpful staff who spoke adequate English. Typical of a riad, there were no outside windows, but we had one that faced the interior courtyard. The riad is within the medina walls and it's about a 15 minute walk to La Place.

                      Bathroom was very dim. It only had one low wattage light bulb overhead, and it was difficult to shave and apply makeup. AC was barely adequate, but granted when we were there it was about 100 degrees during the day. The room was right around the corner from the front door and reception, and was right off the interior courtyard which had tables and chairs for guests. We thought it was somewhat noisy. One night we could hear conversations in the courtyard until midnight, as well as returning guests coming through the front door.
