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 1st floor double bedroom which open onto the mezzanine level above the courtyard below.
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 included in the price of the room,
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.

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.

Radouane was a warm and welcoming host, who responded promptly to my messages and took every care of my stay. Riad Eva is gorgeous, the right mixture of quiet and friendly and is perfectly placed to explore the city.
It was a very great experience. At first we were a bit puzzled (cf the stuffy room as described) but Radouane and Achmed were really great and moved us up. From that moment everything went super well (we stayed 5 days). We had fun with the hosts and the guests ending up having a melting pot diner on one evening at the riad.
The guests helped us to deal with some "problems " we had had with some sellers in the souk. That was nice to feel supported. Thanks again Achmed and Mohammed.
Ryad highly recommanded.
Un peu décontenancée par la chambre du bas, Radouane et Achmed nous ont rapidement bougé et à partir de ce moment, ce fut absolument super. On s'est bien amusé avec les hôtes et les clients. On a meme fini par faire un diner tous ensembles un des soirs dans le ryad. Les hôtes nous ont bien aidé quant à certain "problèmes" rencontrés dans les souks. C'était trés agréable de se sentir soutenu. Je recommande ce ryad.
Notre séjour au Riad Eva a été parfait !
Le riad est très bien situé, à quelques centaines de mètres à peine de la Place Jemaa el-Fna et le lieu est très beau (une très jolie terrasse). Merci pour l'accueil et le séjour !
Such a great find! The place is so much more quaint and beautiful than the pictures can show. I would go back in a heartbeat. And that roof terrace... wow!
I booked very last minute and they were happy to accommodate and very helpful.
Very central location, being only 5 minutes from Jemaa el-Fnaa square, but just far enough away for some peace and quite away from the craziness of the medina.
The room itself is spotless, very authentically decorated and a comfortable size.
Breakfast on the terrace in the morning is especially lovely and I hope to take my friends back next year.
Thank you for a lovely stay!
The location is great, staff were very nice and helpful and for the price it was about what we expected. The terrace is nice for chilling after a night out and for sun in the morning. Our room would have been fine but it was very damp, it smelled of mould and the bed was damp. There is visible mould on the walls in the bathroom and even after replacing the sheets we spent a night sleeping in a damp bed. We felt that without the wetness it would have been a good deal.
I felt taken good care of with Radouane and the staff. He was very quick in replying online. The riad has a very nice roof terrace. However the room where I stayed was located on the ground floor and was quite moist and unfortunately it wasn't possible to change rooms after arrival. Otherwise the room was quite comfortable. Make sure you reserve one of the top floor rooms if you stay at this riad.
Joli petit riad au coeur de la médina, fidèle aux photos. Attention chambres au rez de chaussée humides et sombres, même si la décoration est très belle - préférez demander une chambre aux deux étages supérieurs -. Terrasse sur le toit au top, petit déj très bon, nuits très calmes.
