About this listing
Authentic riad with a garden, a massage room and a traditional hammam.
Surrounded on two sides of high galleries of arches, the riad berbère is a perfect example of the architectural tradition of the big houses of Marrakesh.
The large living room takes up the south wall of the garden. On its cedar ceiling, built like a "hull" as the roofs of mosques and marabouts, very ancient patterns are painted. A pyramidal roof protects it directly from bad weather.
The garden is divided into four plant beds as the tradition wants it. In the center, sheltered from trees, orange trees, olive trees and banana trees, a pond of filtered water, invites you for a bath during the warm hours.
On two sides, rooms are preceded by galleries.
Every room is reachable directly from the patio. They have each their dressing room and their bathroom. There are two downstairs and three upstairs.
Both rooms of the ground floor which surround the garden open by r' taj traditional doors. One is equipped with a bathroom with shower, the other one with a taddelakt bath. The rooms upstairs have each their own staircase.
The "West" room has kept its ancient cedar ceiling and benefits from a wooden balcony which dominates the garden; the "South" room has its own private terrace. The private bathroom and the dressing room are at an intermediate level; whereas the "East" room is organized as a Suite with a small lounge (spare room) which opens on two small terraces.
The kitchen has kept its former proportions. The main part is protected behind a big arc of bricks, whereas the other one opens directly on the sky.
The terraces roofs offer on two levels the sun and the unique view of the roofs of the medina.

I have a thing for quality and attention to detail and I'm happy to say ingrid, her team and the beautiful riad all exceeded my expectations! We were blown away by the exceptional hospitality we were shown and the great degree of care displayed. Ingrid and her staff were polite, willing, kind and helpful. One of the meals we ate at the riad was one of the best meals I've ever eaten and I'd highly recommend eating there. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about our stay so I highly recommend staying at this beautiful riad. If you are looking for something exceptional, this is definitely it.
A great and beautiful Riad! Pickup at the Airport as well as the Transport of Luggage from the Taxi Cab to the Riad was perfectly organized. Ingrid is a great Host and has a good and charming Team around her. The Room was very nice and I loved the Cats that gave the Riad a special Charme. Breakfast was very nice and I was very sorry to leave after only one Night.
This beautiful riad is a quiet oasis just a short walk from the centre of the bustling souks. Ingrid and her friendly team were very helpful and we definitely recommend having dinner at the riad on one night, it was superb!
Ingrid was so helpful and kind. We showed up scatter-brained and exhausted from driving ourselves through the Atlas mountains and she organized our pick-up, helped us troubleshoot a luggage situation, and walked us through the Medina, explaining how to get back to the Riad so we would not get lost. Her Riad really is an oasis in the middle of Marrakesh! I wish we could have stayed longer!
We loved our stay at Riad Bebere. Ingrid is the perfect host, very friendly, helpful and welcoming. The staff are all extremely friendly and never without a smile on their faces. As soon as you step through the doors from the bustling medina outside you are immediately relaxed. It's a very tranquil and calming place.
Taxi's are a 5-8 min walk away but staff are very happy to walk you there and if coming home late at night, a guardian will be there to meet you. We felt very safe, but is really nice to have the assurance that you 're not going to get lost. (if you're wearing heels - take flats if you can for the walk).
We felt very central to the Souks and Medina. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful. The decor of our room was beautiful and housekeeping was very clean and tidy.
My only regret was that i don't speak french very well/at all and would have liked to have had the chance to converse with the taxi drivers and staff in the Riad.
Thank you all at Riad Bebere, we miss it already.
Easy walking distance from the souks and the famous square, the riad was like returning to home after a whole day out. The place is beautifully kept and the staff are wonderfully good-natured and attentive. We were given one of the rooms on the ground floor, which allowed our toddler to run free around the gorgeous garden and play with the cats. Though there was no air-conditioner in the room, a fan was provided, so it was comfortable enough for the three of us. Dinner twice at the riad and it was really good! Ingrid was also kind enough to make provisions so that we were able to do a trip out to Agadir in the middle of our holiday in Marrakech. We really had a lovely stay at Riad Berbere.
The place is exactly like portrayed in the pictured. An oasis in the midst of oriental, sizzling life. We highly enjoyed staying, coming home in the evening and spending time in Riad Berbere. Recommended to everyone! Quick walk everywhere.
