This Riad exceeded all expectations. The room was incredible. Felt like we were staying in a palace. It was clean and majestic. Absolutely brilliant.
However, the best thing about this Riad was not the room. It was the atmosphere, the hospitality and the warmth...provided primarily by Alberto and Matteo. I can't speak highly enough of them. It felt like we were staying with some old friends not a hotel. They were friendly and professional. Their insight into Morocco and it's ways gave us a great head-start into what to expect. Their Italian meal was very tasty. As was the Tagine they served up. Their door was always open for questions and they were beyond helpful. Thanks guys for making our stay so memorable. You should be highly commended.
We spend 4 comfortable nights in Riad Bamileke.
Its an africanstyle Riad with wonderful mural paintings and a cosy rooftoop.
Our part of the Riad had an extra entry, 3 rooms and a luxorious bathroom.
3 Italian friends run the Riad, make yummy italian food (there is also morcan homemade tajine) and organize any trip you want to go to.
Thanks to Riad Bamileke
We had such a memorable stay in this beautiful Riad. Perfectly positioned in the heart of the Medina and a 2 minute walk to Jemaa El Fna. We arrived at the end of Ramadan and was pleased to find the Riad was in a quiet alleyway just far enough away from the hustle and bustle.
Our room was amazing with a four poster bed and intricate mosaics adorning the walls. We had an enormous sunken stone bath and African art everywhere.
The Riad also serves food and we enjoyed a delicious 3 course meal including a fantastic chicken tagine.
Simeone , Matteas and Roberto are perfect hosts. Helpful and a good source of local information. All in all a great stay and a perfect introduction to Morocco.
The room is absolutely amazing! A real palace.
We spent just one night here, but it was a great experience. Would recommend this place to everyone!
This is a fantastic original Riad very close to the square. Staff is very relaxed and helpful. Super quick responses by email.
Great value for money. Almost unbelievable. Definately recommended
Matteo was extremely helpful with booking my trip to the Sahara Desert and to book a last minute room the night before. I was a solo woman traveler going through Marrakesh and found it to be slightly intimidating and confusing to find the place I was staying in. Matteo was able to meet and walk back with me to Riad Bamileke which relieved much of the hassle and stress that I was nervously anticipating. The room where I stayed at was exactly what I got. It was clean, inviting, and felt like a queen because of how majestic, spacious, and comfortable I felt. This place exceeded my expectations and was able to enjoy peace and quiet during my stay here. I would absolutely recommend this place! If j ever make it back to Morocco, I definitely know where to stay in Marrakesh! Thank you Matteo for my unforgettable trip to the Sahara and for creating one last great experience before I left!
This riad is an absolute dream. Our room was so amazing my husband and I were pinching ourselves that we got to stay in it. It's perfectly located close to the square. The rooftop terrace is a great place to relax after a long day. The breakfasts included were a nice touch and we loved sitting in the courtyard every morning. Everyone is extremely hospitable and nice and we would most definitely stay here again. Definitely stay here!!!
