un endroit où il fait bon se reposer

Our hosts testimony

What better way than to give you the word on the internet


"Ranked among the Riads of exception, Rihani deserves his title. Located 3 minutes walk from Jemaa el Fna square, warmth kindness and the availability reserve to the hosts have contributed to make our stay enjoyable. Thanks again to Najet and her cooker for "the surprise birthday cake" !I recommend this riad, with its superb patio and tent, its bedrooms wonderfully decorated and its kitchen."

"The staff is very kind, always willing to help and do a favour. The geographical situation is perfect(at 5 mn from the main square). The riad cooking is excellent / dining on site is strongly recommended!"

A journey through the centuries ...

"This is our third trip to Morocco, we chose the Rihani. The rihani ... Ahhh ...... where to start ? There are so many things to say ! The situation in Medina, at the corner of a maze of lively streets starting from the Djemaa place, you will pass a small porch beneath which lies an old gate. By pushing the door, you will travel through the centuries and another world will begin. A world of peace, harmony and kindness. Not a sound ... just the lapping of the central basin and the birds singing in the courtyard of citrus.  Le Riad: the Riad has kept its authenticity while offering all the necessary comfort for the well being.the rooms are nicely decorated and tastefully decorated with authentic objects, but it is at night that all the magic happens. Mohamed (The Master Key), illuminates the entire patio with dozens of candles and lanterns. There is nothing more to say, just to admire. Table: Food is wonderful. Habiba is a real magician…Whether it's the couscous, tagines, or briouates everything is here. Excellent ! What a pleasure to dine around the pool in the light of candles that give life to the shadows of rose petals that Mohamed has scattered on the tablecloth ... Host: We extend a huge thank you to all the team of the Riad. Nice people who dont just care about you, but also take great pleasure in sharing with you a little of their lives. A real small family of adoption. Riad director Najat ,is always in action, pleasant, dynamic while being discreet. Najat is always of very good advice, and bends over backwards to make you the most pleasant stay. Mohamed, we call it the Keymaker. What a man!Night and day,here is always happy and is a very nice person. We are truly attached to Mohamed. Habiba, our lovely cook! She really enjoyed our taste buds (ask her tajine peas, artichokes hearts and lamb ... A delight). Thank you again Habiba for this moment of exchange and sharing the secrets of Moroccan cuisine. Latifa the queen of Hammam. What a pleasure to be captivated by her master of the hammam. Not to be missed! Nadia, always in action in the rooms. When Nadia must remove a forgotten book on the bed to do the housework , she always takes great caution to place a bookmark to avoid disturbing reading ... nice touch. What's more, a beautiful place and people to discover. Caution, however, there is a real danger in this place ... this is the risk of not wanting to leave. We were the victims! Thank you all and see you soon."

An excellent journey

"Excellent stay, unfortunately too short .. but that makes you want to return very soon. Such a friendly and attentive staff, delicious food that is a big thank you to the cook ... with dinner at the fireplace! Thank you and congratulations to our hostess Najat, Riad responsible. When you spend the only half day of rain in the Hammam .. then massage is truly exceptional. This Riad, ideally located near the Jemaa el Fna, is very spacious and comfortable. Few bedrooms to share a large patio, enjoying high terrace with a beautiful view and all the services and attentions in the most perfect discretion. Highly recommended. Congratulations."

"I left a week for Morocco with my mom, the choice was very difficult because there was hundreds of riads in Marrakech, we stopped on this one. It is a magical place , I do not regret my choice. On our arrival, we were warmly welcomed by the hostess and her team : mint tea , pastries , explanations .... the room was very nice, clean , beautiful bathroom. We had had the chance to visit all the rooms, they are all different, but charming. I didnot know Moroccan cuisine , so we took the half board , I strongly recommend it to you , habiba is a great cooker and we enjoyed it each evening. I could taste several typical dishes at the pool with candles, rose petals on the table .... I ate at the riad better than outside where the quality was not often here. The pool is large and deep enough , it's so nice to swim when it's hot . • The setting is perfect for magical holiday , I am once again a little girl for a week .So thank you Rihani for everything ! ? Last thing , my mother had forgotten her gold necklace in the room, he reminded us for this oversight and it returned. So you can really trust them. ? Soon!"

This riad is a pearl

"Located in the heart of Marrakech, this riad is a gem. All the ingredients are here to awake your senses and give you a moment of relaxation and well-being. This place offers quality services while keeping the charm and authenticity of the Moroccan architecture. Hosting Najate and Mohamed are perfect, the food prepared by the cook Habiba are sublime and eaten by the candlelight around the pool or in the lounge as you wish. After a long day in the souks, we invite you to test massage pure bliss. We spend unforgettable moments in this riad and will return without hesitation."

A small paradise in the heart of Medina

"We spent 3 days at Riad Rihani after a beautiful but tiring trip in southern Morocco. Riad was exactly what we were looking for quiet, peaceful, refined and very nice, superbly located in the heart of the Merina. The riad is ideally located for shopping in the heart of Marrackech (5 min from the souk and Jaam El Fna main place). The rooms are very nice and refined luxury without ostentation. The right balance. The staff is very friendly and professional. The kitchen is outstanding making it probably one of the best restaurants in Marrakech. In a nutshell: if you want a few days of peaceful rest in Marrakech: do not hesitate, you'll love the Rihani."

A very good adress that we recommend!!!

At the end of a typical street , I discovered behind a small wooden door a marvel , a gem of calm and beauty hidden in the heart of the medina where so teeming with activities. Just the time to put down my luggage already and already Mohammed is here to bring us mint tea with his sweets , as a welcome . Sitting here in this enchanting place along the pool that makes me a big wink ( it was very hot ) ... no doubt , Belgium is far , far away , and with it , the whole daily routine ... Then I discovered the rooms,which are as beautiful as original. In fact, a lot of research to customize themes and colors , all in a perfect refinement. I chose the " Slave " beautiful suite flamboyant colors and fabrics, carved wood , brass and soft lighting that still throws me a little more in this atmosphere of Arabian Nights . The other parts of the Riad are decorated with as much care and taste and creates a very warm and authentic atmosphere. But it is in the evening , when this small palace is illuminated , the whole magic of the place makes sense . The ideal situation Riad ( the heart of the Medina , at 5 min. Away from the Jamaa el Fna square), we were able to visit the main monuments and interesting places to visit , which is a significant advantage . The area also boasts of dining options. However, once we tasted local food deliciously prepared by Habiba , the outstanding cook of Rihani , it is difficult to look elsewhere . And to finish the day , just a trip to the hammam carefully prepared by Mohammed : candles, soap , incense, ... nothing is missing and we may use it and abuse of it. Level of care for those who love , I highly recommend the massage : Experts fingers and essential oils that scent the atmosphere. We just let go. A moment of pure happiness. In short, too short a stay there (and who just want to give back ) in an exceptional place , clean, warm , refined and providing perfect service ... Thank you to Najat and her team. A very good place that we recommend !

Our little paradise

The choice was difficult for many years, but on the arrival no regrets. It was the Riad of our dreams!? We spent 4 wonderful days in this beautiful Riad with a great staff.? Gentleness and kindness are the watchwords. The location is ideal, all major sites are nearby. The nearest shopping street is full of cool shops with very nice traders.? For catering look no further, Habiba is the queen of stoves and eating by the poolside with the candlelights is very romantic..
