As with all riads and hotels in Marrakech the local authorities apply a 2.5 euro per person per day tourist tax on all visitors which is payable on arrival at the riad.
Great little room in riad off the medina. Once inside it's a quiet haven away from the madness. I would recommend to friends , just make sure you memorise the route back as it's hard to learn.
The riad is in a great location within 5 mins walk to the main square and medina. Mohammed who runs the day to day of the riad and serves breakfast is very helpful. Abdel welcomed us on our arrival and showed us the way through the small streets to the road and to the square. They were both helpful with information and answering our questions about things to do and see.
The only negative is that this type of riad/house is not condusive to sleeping in at all in the mornings. Unfortunately if other guests are on the ground floor or on the terrace talking, you hear everything from the room and this makes it very difficult to sleep in or get to sleep after a busy day out.
The room is very cute and had everything you need. The bathroom lovely and we asked for a hairdryer and were supplied one easily.
Also the other reviews mentioned the food in the riad was excellent and to definitely have dinner in one night. When we asked to eat in for dinner the following night after our arrival, we were told to choose from the menu the next morning - this was fine with us as we had seen it had a choice of starters, mains and desserts.
The next morning I wanted to choose a starter and lamb tagine and my mother another starter and the chicken dish.
Mohammed told us we both had to choose the same thing?? I found this strange as there was so much choice on the menu. He said those were the rules and they had a small kitchen so couldn't cook more than one option. I wasn't happy with this as my mother and I have different tastes and neither should be forced to eat just one dish.
Also, I asked what happens if our room chose the chicken but another room of guests chose the lamb? They'd have to cook 2 different dishes anyway? To that Mohammed had no answer and just kept repeating these were the rules. In the end we decided not to eat dinner in the riad any of the nights but go out instead.
That and the noisy other guests until 2am or at 7am were the only things that dampened our stay.
Marina thank you for your comments. Our riad is a guest house, it is not a restaurant nor a private house. We do our very best to accommodate all our guests requests but as I said we are not a restaurant and do not offer an extensive menu. Regarding the noise, it is very unusual as we are commended for the quietness and tranquility. Such a shame you were not able to enjoy the riad fully.
The listing was accurate in its description , breakfast was boring and more variety would be good.
We really enjoyed our stay at Riad 107. Abdel and his staff looked after us really well and the location was perfect.
We had a lovely stay at the riad. Location was within 10 minutes stroll to the main square.
Clean and helpful staff. Mohammed helped us through out our stay, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend them. Breakfast was delicious and air con worked well.
We had a little difficulty contacting the staff on our arrival, but we mainly blame ourselves for not arranging a set location prior to leaving a wifi zone. The riad is easy to find once you know how.
I stay in this riad whenever I come and stay in marrakech. It's in a really good location in the centre of the medina yet it's still really quiet and peaceful.

About the Host, Leila
I'm Leah originally from Australia I lived for 14 years in Florence, Italy where I still have active contacts. For the past 2 years I have lived in Marrakech, Morocco a vibrant town pulsating in exotic sounds and sites. I love living here; the people, the food, the landscape, the religion, the architecture and the music...
Travel expands our life experience, paradoxically encountering people and places out of our daily routines and comfort zones increases understanding of ourselves and those close to us...
Marrakech is music to the ears!
