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.
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.
My girlfriend and I had a great time in Marrakech. It was because of Radouane and his effort that put in. He was always very helpful, booked us a private taxi which picked us from Airport to the Riad, and it was very cheap. Riad is in the heart of famous souk, it takes only 2 mins to get busy Marrakech life. no worries it's very quite where Riad is, so you will always have a good sleep. Riad is always clean, there is a lady who takes care of your room, duvet, bathroom etc.once you leave your room in the morning. Once we asked her to prepared us a breakfast in the terrace which was amazing. I highly reccommend Radouane's Riad to everyone.
Wonderful place to stay. Very pretty and quiet. A beautiful view of the alas mountains from the rooftop. Radouanne has supplied everything you need to get by, he even has fresh bottled water available for your use.
The shower was piping hot although the room was rather cool in Feb. There were plenty of thick blankets in my room, and heating in the bathroom so it was no problem.
It is a bit tricky to find as it has no sign on the door but gmaps will take you right to the door.
Be prepared to ring Radouanne when you arrive as he appears to be a busy man.
Simply put...this was a great experience! Highly recommend.
Really cute place!
Wifi only works in the lounge.
As was said by others 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. The two people looking after the Riad were wonderful but it was extremely cold, my room (temp outside about 25 deg but inside it was 5 deg) heater did not work and no attempt made to fix it. I could not recommend. Also just before leaving they requested money for breakfasts although I had been told by Radoune it was included - it took my last bit of cash
We were very happy with this Riad and most of all with the service of Radouane. We changed our group at the last minute, and even if the Riad was full, he could still change our room so we could be three together. He also helped us with our lugage, a trustworthy taxi and other things.
Plus: the rooftop terrace with its beautiful view on the roofs of Marrakech.
Be careful: the Riad is in a very small street, at the end of it, to the right. You really must look it up on a map before going there.
Nous étions très contentes du Riad et surtout du service de Radouane. A la dernière minute nous avons pu changer de chambre, car nous étions une personne de plus ; il nous a aidé avec nos bagages et trouver un taxi fiable ; il nous a aidé avec plein d'autres choses.
Un plus: la terrase. Elle est vraiment magnifique et donne une vue sur les toits de Marrakech à tomber par terre.
Une chose à savoir : le Riad se trouve à la fin d'une petite ruelle, au fond à droite. Cherchez le sur un plan avant d'y aller.
Excelente ubicación y muy buen trato. El sitio está muy bien y sobre todo lo mejor es la ubicación ya que dentro de La Medina creo que es primordial. Radoune estuvo en todo momento en nuestra llegada y pendiente de nuestra estancia. Muy recomendable.
When we arrived at this location, we were brought about 5 mins walk to another venue totally. While that was perfectly fine for our single night stay, its still odd to arrive at your location and to be brought to another place totally.
The room itself was fine, and the staff at the riad were excellent.
I should point out, as others have done, that by booking this place you will not necessarily stay in it. BUT, and there is a big but, it may turn out even better than you planned. I arrived having booked a room for one night & letting them know I wanted a second night if possible, to find it had been decided I should be put in a friend's riad that could take me for both nights. I had spent a long time choosing this place & chose because of cats & open fires, so was disappointed to have had that decision made for me, and at that point this place was full so I had no choice. The other riad was 'even better' as they put it, but this meant more deluxe and less homey. I wanted homey. I insisted on staying here the second night and was given the suite to compensate (fire in room). Radouane was otherwise in all respects very helpful, sending out for food, giving me a ride to train station, meeting me very late off the train on my way back through. The place is a home from home with friendly staff (though if you don't speak French you'll have trouble being understood by anyone but Radouanne who is always a phone call away), always hot water, a lovely roof terrace with fantastic views of the Atlas and adorable, albeit feisty, cats. It's also in a beautiful and peaceful neighbourhood minutes from the main square but eons away from the chaos.
Even though it didn't go to plan, this 'flexibility' worked both against me and in my favour. That seems to be how Morocco goes. Just insist if you definitely want to stay in THIS place. I would, and will certainly return. It is called Riad Eva on (website hidden) and is cheaper there.
Reservé la habitación que ponía en la web de airbnb, el día anterior reconfirmé por email y me dijeron que todo estaba bien pero al llegar allí nos llevaron a otro riad, porque el que reservamos estaba lleno y era uno de menos categoría y más barato de lo que pagué (lo confirmé con otras páginas web como booking). La habitación no estaba mal pero el baño olía mal y habían cucarachas. No creo que eso sea bueno para la misma web de airbnb.
