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 Ground Floor Double en-suite "Rabat Bedroom." It is cool in the summer seat and can accommodate an additional single bed on request.
Please contact us for availability for our other triple and double rooms, as we are currently in the process of listing similar style rooms on AirB&B that we have available.
Breakfast is not included in the price of the room, but can be ordered at an additional cost of €3/person. This includes your choice of tea, coffee or fresh squeezed orange juice and a Moroccan continental selection.
Refreshments and evening meals can be taken on the ground floor courtyard, or on the patio terrace and can be ordered from the staff. Evening meal requests must be ordered by midday. The top patio terrace features wrap-around views of Marrakesh and the Atlas mountains on clear days. Individual and couples hammams, massage and spa treatments, a variety of excursions, henna tattoos, and official souk guides can be arranged by the English speaking live-in staff on request.
Our business partner is a life-long resident of Marrakech and can accommodate any additional requests for help or information in French or Arabic if required. Our local connections make us ideally suited to help you make the most of your trip to Marrakech.
The Riad is a 30 minute transfer from Marrakech (RAK) airport and 10 minutes by taxi to the most popular attractions in Marrakech including Marjorelle Gardens and Jardin de l'Agdal.
The Downstairs open-air courtyard lounging area opens onto a communal salon with Satellite TV. WiFI access is available on the ground floor courtyard.
Radouane gave me correct, useful information before arrival, during my stay and upon checkout. He´s nice and friendly and efficient.
I am very happy I stayed in this Riad Eva room for my first visit to Morocco. The location is perfect. Going there and exploring the Medina was like being in a Hitchcock movie. The riad and the room were beautifully decorated for the right atmosphere. Strong wifi in the room too.
Just a few minor things to know:
The Amenities include Breakfast but you have to pay extra. (The description has now been updated to say this.)
A window does not lock but I felt safe anyway.
The shower has no curtain but it was OK. Strong hot water.
The bathroom is clean but the toilet had a smell.
I could hear the neighbors so I slept only after they slept.
Still, I am very happy I stayed in this room for my first visit to Morocco. I recommend it. Thanks, Radouane.
I can´t really recommend Radouanes place - Not because it doesn´t seem nice, but because he had made a double booking, so he sent me to another Riad that he is connected with.
That one was even better - and the man who was there was excellent - very relaxed, professional and full of ambience - like the (other) Riad :-)
Radouane runs a very professional and comfortable riad. It is in a central location and was perfect for one of our nights in Marrakech.
Radouane is a very nice and welcoming guy. The Riad is absolutely beautiful, the roof is absolutely great. The room is simple but confortable and clean. The place is quite central, only a couple minutes walk away from the Jemaa el-Fnaa square. They have an adorable cat!
Kenny was quite helpful with info and suggestions. Breakfast was not available 2 of 3 mornings, bad septic smell in my first room took 2 days to switch rooms. Hard beds too.
Room was as described. It is in a good location, very close to the action but down a quiet and safe side street. This room is a little cold and dark being on the ground floor and there are better rooms available in this riad, we had a second brief stay here in a nicer room on the first floor. My suggestion would be to just search "Riad Eva" and book direct through their website (and save yourself the AirBnB fee). Overall, I would recommend this Riad but look for another room.
Kenny and Cheryl were wonderful hosts. They were very welcoming and helpful, giving us a tour of the medina and lots of great tips.
The Riad is in an excellent location, just two minutes from Jamal el Fina and really easy to find. The room was nice and their little kitten was loads of fun. Would definitely stay there again!
Un super accueil
Un riad à l'abris du bruit en plein coeur de la médian de marrakesh
Un plaisir pour le repos, mais aussi pour les papilles avec un super ptit dej le matin, penser à en parler à Kenny !
