About this listing
Riad Eva - R&R rooms with a traditional Moroocan style at a budget friendly price.
We are a small riad based in one of the most highly desirable neighbourhoods in the heart of the Marrakesh Medina.
Now under new management, Riad Eva offers a tranquil R&R retreat and is both couples and family friendly. The Riad is located in the highly sought-after Moulay Abdel Kader neighborhood off of Derb Debachi, which is only a 3 minute walk to Jemma El Fna Square in the Heart of the Old Medina. Although all the action of Marrakech is right outside your doorstep, you will feel completely a world-away from the hustle and bustle of the medina in this quiet, friendly and tranquil neighborhood. The rooms of the Riad are of the traditional inwards facing style, offering a surprising degree of privacy and seclusion from the outside world.
The Riad features 4 double on-suite bedrooms, 1 triple en-suite bedroom and 1 two-bedroom terrace suite. All of the rooms open onto a traditional Moroccan open-plan courtyard with a large two-tier rooftop sun terrace with multiple seating options. The Riad features a traditional, tasteful rustic Moroccan decor throughout.
This listing is for the 2nd floor 'Marrakech Suite' and features a double master bedroom with chaise lounge connecting to an en-suite shower room. A second adjoining room features a private fireplace with an additional single bed, with chaise lounger. Access to the en-suite bathroom is through the Master bedroom. Both bedrooms open directly onto the 2nd floor sun-terrace. A communal Turkish toilet is additionally located on the 1st floor landing for guest use if required. This room is not air-conditioned, but a powerful 130w fan is supplied.
Please contact us for availability for our double rooms, as we are currently in the process of listing similar style rooms on AirB&B that we have available.

The Riad was lovely and Radouane was a very nice host! When I hurt my foot and couldnt walk anymore, he even came to pick my up on the motorbike. The terrace is beautiful and the location is perfect, I can definitely recommend it.
Great location and helpful staff no air conditioning which is absolutely something to keep in mind when going to Northern Africa. Cooled down at night though to be doable and fans in every room. Otherwise was fantastic and clean
Posto pulito, tranquillo, esattamente come nell'annuncio. Colazione sulla terrazza, abbondante. Host disponibile e riservato. A cinque minuti a piedi da piazza Jamaa el Fna, in una dei derb più suggestivi della zona dei souk. Torneremo senza dubbio.
Riad Eva was the perfect place to stay in Marrakech. Radouane arranged a taxi to pick us up from the airport and he met us in the square. The terrace suite was by far the best room in the place, with amazing views across Marrakesh. Even though we were literally minutes away from the main square, the neighbourhood was very peaceful. Breakfast was provided and although this was simple, it was as expected for the price of the room. I would definitely recommend this riad to those wanting to be near the hustle and bustle of the square, but also to those who just want to get away from it all. This riad offers both options.
Overall a very pleasant experience. The riad is very central which meant we were just a few steps away from the Jemmaa-el-Fna. The room between three of us was quite small but it was clean. The staff were very helpful giving us advice on the area and they organised excursions to the Atlas mountains and camel-riding.
We enjoyed breakfast on the terrace which overlooked Marrakech each morning. Breakfast consisted of coffee, Moroccan pancakes, bread and apricot jam. If we ever come back to Marrakech, we'd be tempted to stay here again!
Host was very welcoming on entry, although hard to find at points when we needed to ask questions. The lady that works there to cook and clean is very nice yet doesn't speak english, which is fair enough. Her breakfast is simple but good. The neighbourhood seemed safe, you do have to walk done a couple of dark alleys at night but there were always a few people about, as there is a mosque near by. We had the terrace room it was great, came with a fan, as could get quite warm. It was clean and the shower was hot and powerful.
Lovely Riad in centre of Medina. Charming host , couldn't do enough for me. Very attentive. Will stay here again
