The Space

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 "Casablanca" double room. It is unique on the property in being the only room that has windows onto the quiet street on one side and the mezzanine level opposite, making for a nice cross breeze and an abundance of natural light. The rooms sleeps 2, but additional mattress can be supplied on request.

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.

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.

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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

  • This riad was beautiful. The location was perfect, close enough to medina but tucked away far enough from the crowds. Radouane arranged for a pick up as we will arrive at late into Marrakech. He was very accommodating and ensured our stay was comfortable. This was necessary as it would have been difficult to find it ourselves. We would definitely recommend!

  • Radouane is really nice and helpful host. Offers are a lot help and advises during our stay. He pickup us from the airport and show the the Riad. The place in situated in the heart of the Medina. It's a really unforgettable experience to see and sleep in that kind of place. Riad was clean and it has everything you need. I recommend rooms on higher floors.

  • The Riad was lovely and simple, had a homely feel to it. The room was perfect for the two of us, private, cozy and beautifully decorated Moroccan style. Radouane arranged transfers on arrival and because it was a Saturday night when they close the streets off for the market, Radouane met us where we got dropped off and walked us to his Riad. Always smiling and happy to give any tips and help, Radouane is a great cheerful host. Breakfast served every morning, except for one slight mishap where his helper didn't arrive in the morning but Radouane was on it straight away and got the breakfast going which made it extra special. The breakfasts were simple and satisfying and what a treat sitting on the roof terrace with the sun beaming down. The Riad is situated perfectly, close enough to the hustle and bustle, only a very short walk to the main market square yet far enough away from it too for some quiet. Thank you Radouane, we had a wonderful I'm sure we will see you again in the future, we will definitely be returning to beautiful Maroc.

  • Thank you Radouane and staff! We had a lovely time staying at your Riad. After arriving in busy Marrakech and wandering around the confusing streets of the Medina we were shown to the Riad by a local (for a small fee of course) and were pleased to find it really peaceful and pretty. It is in a great location- near the square but far enough away to be quiet. On arrival we were accommodated in a lovely upstairs room with nice traditional features, clean en-suite and little table and sofa perfect for playing cards. The room was cool and relatively quiet apart from some street noises if the windows were open and other visitors showering etc....didn't bother us at all. The riad has lovely courtyard areas, especially those upstairs out in the sun and were perfect spots for enjoying the complimentary breakfast of bread, cheese, yogurt and super sweet mint tea. The lovely little seating area right at the top was great for looking over the roof tops and watching the sun go down. Would recommend this as a pleasant place to relax in a crazy city!

  • Goede en rustige locatie. Met slecht weer en regen wel koud binnen. Accommodatie simpel en ook vrij klein maar gelet op prijs per nacht O.K. Radouane is aardige en sympathieke gastheer.

  • The booking was easy and the communication with the owner quick and friendly.
    Actually we didn't get the riad we've found on the internet but the owner told us that before and on the date of arriving we were taken to the other riad. Just a few minutes of walk and very close to the main places. Despite the closeness to that places the riad itself was very qualm. It was clean, very nice and the staff very friendly.
    So would definitely book again a riad of this owner.

  • As some other guests did, I can' t recommand Radouanes place. At the time we arrived The riad was overbooked, so that we had to stay in another one. There they told us, that Radouane would come the next morning to take us to his Riad, but he didn't come. So we went there by ourselves the next morning but could not talk to him, because he wasn't there and he was unavailable. A kind woman opened the door and tried to reach Radouane, but he didn't answer. There were 2 other persons with us, who had the same problem. We decided to stay in the other Riad, because we liked it there, but it would have been even nicer without the stress we had.

    Response from Radouane:

    I'm sorry for the mistake actually I was in the hospital emergency in this period (4,5,6,7 March ), sorry again
