We loved everything about this riad, and especially the wonderful warm, smiling staff. Noura, the 2 Hadijas, and Abshamad. They offered such a warm welcome and throughout our stay couldn’t do enough for us. We were offered complimentary bottled water and Moroccan tea at any time and nothing was ever too much trouble for them. Location was perfect for us as only a modest walk to the Médina but sufficiently far away to enjoy peace and quiet.
Nothing - everything was perfect!
Beautiful design. Great location. Really nice staff, Abdul was especially helpful to us. Really nice breakfasts. First night we paid for the Riad evening meal which was really great. Very recommended overall.
Loud water noise when upstairs rooms using showers/toilets. Entrance down alleyway, would be easy to be trapped potentially although no sign of this happening when we were there. Cold pool (13 Celsius) but maybe that was intentional. Transfers pretty expensive at 15€ each way.
I liked the very helpful young man in reception . As a woman alone I felt absolutely safe . The location is most convenient for visiting all the sites .
The bedroom was rather dark .
We loved everything about Riad Shemsi but what made this place stand out for us was the warmth of its people. Often you go places and people are nice because they have a reason to be. The staff working at Riad Shemsi are kind hearted people that don't need a reason to open their hearts to you. Being greeted by Abdul ( who is such a kind person) when we arrived, we were offered a pot of Morrocan Tea and Cookies. From then on, we felt at home. The next day we had the pleasure of meeting Noura and two other lovely ladies working at the Riad (sorry, we never found out their names). Noura is the manager, she's very nice and kind and she was happy to give us top tips on our adventures exploring Marrakech and Morroco. Abdul and the two Ladies served us a really delicious breakfast, everymorning arriving with something subtly different to the previous. For all of the staff at Riad Shemsi, we can say nothing was too much trouble. Whether you're new to Morroco or returning, we recommend Riad Shemsi to anyone who whishes to feel at home with such a welcoming bunch of people. My husband braved the pool for a grand total of 5 minutes during our stay (a little chilly in February) but you can still soak in the sun on the rooftop terrace above. The location of the Riad is ideally suited for anyone wishing to explore Marrakech. Its about a 10 to 15 minute walk to Souks and the main square (Jama El F'na square). We will miss everyone at Riad Shemsi and we're looking forward to our next visit!!!
Everything was perfect!!!
Stylish design, everything looks nice and modern with local Motives. The Riad itself we liked a lot, very attentive attitude to guests and to all details. And our special thanks for helping us with our not easy luggage situation. Our luggage got lost in the airport in Agadir and both the manager and the night host were calling to airport many times and helping us to get to agadir so many times u till we found a solution. It was very professional and very attentive from their side. Big big thanks!
A bit dark in the room but it’s part of the design.
