We had a great time here! Our host made a great effort to make the city accessible to us and very helpful in helping us plan and organise trips outside of Marrakesh. Given that the centre of Marrakesh is quite small, most things of interest to tourists are walking distance anyway but this Riad is particularly centrally located and a great base for a stay. We would definitely stay here again.
Those are just a few words to say thanks to Anna Funke for her recent stay. Anna was really calm, very polite, relaxed Guests to hang up with and very respectful. It was real pleasure to meeting anna and her boyfriend. So I just hope they had good time here. Abi
The reservation was canceled 2 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Unfortunately, the room was not available for me when I arrived, and I was not informed in advance. I was taken to an alternative guesthouse a few streets away, yet however, as I was looking forward to the Turquoise Blue room, I was very disappointed with the alternative. The hotel looked absolutely beautiful and the staff friendly, and a great location, but unfortunately I could not stay there.
When Meaghan have booked a room for her stay with us , it was for herself only. (ONE PERSON) But,when Meaghan turns up, it happened to be with somebody else as a couple. Wanting to use the room as a couple and not willing to negotiating the room rates differences if it was occupied by one or more people!!
I'm sorry.But, I think that I did everything on my side and get them a room for that night, just a few doors down the street from us and it suit their budget as two people in the room. Unfortunately the couple weren't happy with the solution been made and walked away.
Le riad blueberber est bien situé au coeur de la Medina à 5 minutes à pied de la place jemaa. Un point très positif est le calme absolu pas de réveil a 6h par des appels à la prières de mosquées ou de bruit du quartier. C'est top pour pouvoir se reposer.
Le lieu est joli bien décoré avec beaucoup de goût. on sent rapidement comme chez soi avec l'accueil d'Abi et des deux dames très discrètes.
Abi essaie de vous donner le maximum de la ville, et est ouvert à la discussion (par contre qu'en anglais!).
Deux points négatifs : le petit déjeuner servi à partir de 8h30 (mais on a réussi à l'avoir à 8h00 un jour en le demandant) mais surtout il n'est pas qualitatif comme sur les photos, en dehors d'une délicieuse orange pressée c'est 2 vaches qui rit de la confiture d'abricot du pain et une boisson chaude. En discutant avec Abi il nous a servi des crêpes salées marocaines 2 matin pour nous faire plaisir. C'est un peu décevant vu le prix de la nuitée qui revient à 70€ la nuit pour 2. Un peu de beurre et une nouvelle petite attention maison chaque jour serait la bienvenue. Contrairement aux photos oubliez les croissants, les fruits frais... La nourriture est très bon marché sur place, donc avec moins d'un 1€ de petits plus ce serait mieux. Au bout de 6 nuits on en a un peu marre du petit déjeuner du Riad...
L'autre point négatif est d'avoir découvert le jour de notre départ que nous devions payer la taxe de séjour , nous aurions aimé le savoir en arrivant pour nous organiser au niveau du change...
En dehors de ces deux points nous avons aimé ce Riad qui a contribué à passer un bon séjour à Marrakesh.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank “Eric Ghougassia and his partner” for booking their stay, compliments regarding the accommodation, taking the time to complete/provide their review which I do appreciate as we always eager to hear what our guests have to say about their stay. As this is a way for us to learn how to improve our services we provide in future.
Its truth, if we were asked by the guests for what time is breakfast served, we say around 8:30. But, it doesn't mean you can't have it before that as our breakfast team is up and about early as 7am. But, they just keep the noise down to avoid the guests disturbance.
From our experience, we think that we do offer the best breakfast that you can actually get, and most of our passed visitors do prefer the our DAILY fresh and homemade organic bread instead of croissants or crepe wish is a (fried bread in sunflower oil :)
The calling from the mosque, doesn't really sound like Eric had to described. We had lots of visitors and no one ever said anything about it really, instead they love it and they buy clock that have the same sound for the wake up call.
Finley, on the last day when I had to mention the city tax to Eric, witch normally we don't have to as it is clearly displayed on web page. He wasn't happy, and had some disputes about it. And this is what he had to say “We should've informed him about the city tax from the very first day or even better at arrival time” which is very wrong thing to do. I mean we don't even ask the Airbnb guests for their passport to fill out on the day they arrive and we try to my check in seamless as we can. So I think the guests should know about the tax issue even before they start to book their stay and not till they get here like Eric said.
Our team work preferred language is English and most of our guests do speak it too. We're very aware that there are people who don't or prefer to stick to their own language and that never been or was an issue or for us to communicate and get to understand our guests and their need.
We would definitely recommend the Riad Blue Berber. We stayed in the turquoise room for 5 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The room was comfortable and authentically decorated and the overall riad was very peaceful and relaxing. A tasty breakfast is included and Abi the host was helpful and friendly. The riad is in a really good location close to the main square. We'd definitely come back.
We had a lovely stay in Marrakech, Riad Blue Berber is a lovely haven to relax in & a great location & beautiful building.
Abi is a great host!
Wir haben drei Nächte bei Abi verbracht und wir waren sehr zufrieden. Abi hat uns herzlich empfangen außerdem spricht er sehr gut Englisch. Das Riad Blue Berber ist sehr sauber und geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Alles ist genau so farbenfroh wie auf den Bildern. Auch der Hof mit Mandarinen- und Granatapfelbäumchen ist sehr idyllisch und dort bekommt man, wenn man möchte auch das Frühstück serviert.
Die Lage ist super, ca. 100-200 m vom berühmten "Djamaa el Fna" Platz entfernt und trotzdem absolut ruhig. Wir würden auf jeden Fall wieder zu ihm kommen, wenn wir das nächste Mal nach Marrakech reisen.

Moroccan,English nationality, and my friends call me Abi. After a long 25 years of working in the heady, fast city of London, with its cosmopolitan culture and a lots of worldwide traveling in between, we realized there was a great need for travelers /holiday makers to come enjoy an authentic holiday and recharge in a homely riad (Accommodation) with beautiful facilities and taste.
The main goal is to ensure that guest's feels at home,have a very welcoming home from home experience, and have a break in a lovely riad away from daily working life.
