Our second time staying at this wonderful Riad. Matteo and Alberto couldn't do enough to help us with the final part of our trip to Morocco including preparing a herbal tonic for an upset stomach. The housekeeper always kept our room beautiful clean and she made the most delicious Tagine which we had in our last evening on the roof terrace. Highly recommend the Riad for any stay in the city.
My stay at Riad Bamileke was great. First of all, the room I booked was easily the biggest and nicest I have ever stayed in. The location of the riad is ideal, as it is both in the middle of the medina and easy to find (I have found that you can usually only have one or the other in Moroccan medinas, but here you have both). The whole staff was very helpful in picking me up and answering my questions. My cab ride from the train station was curiously expensive (even though it was about a 15 minute ride and walk from point to point, it was almost as expensive as my 7 hour grand taxi ride from Mezouga to Fes.), but otherwise everything was very good.
We were collected by the driver of the Riad from the airport after arriving late in the evening. Our bags were also transported by cart direct to the door as taxis aren't permitted in the square. This made everything very easy for us. We were overjoyed with our room which was beautiful and very generously proportioned. Alberto and Matteo were incredibly accommodating with finding alternatives to cater for my wheat and gluten allergies and they made a chicken Tagine for us that was exquisite. They also organised a last minute trek to Toubkal mountain for us and kept our trekking bags while we went to relax afterwards in Essaouria for 5 days.
We highly recommend the riad if you're planning on a trip to Marrakech.
Riad Bamileke is in an ideal location only a couple of minutes from the markets in Marrakech. Matteo and Alberto were very welcoming and organised for us to go on a three-day trip to Sahara Desert where we camped for the night which I highly recommend to anyone who has time to squeeze a trip into their visit - it was amazing. The food at the Riad is delicious and the terrace is a beautiful place to chill and eat. The only thing about the Riad is that there is no air conditioning so it got quite hot at night. Looking forward to visiting Morocco again!
Great location, and the guys are great and very helpful. I would definitely recommend this place if anyone is looking to stay in Marrakech.
Un precioso Riad en una calle tranquila muy próxima a la plaza Jemaa el Fna. Habitación muy espaciosa, con un baño típico estilo hamman y muy bien decorada.
O Riad é muito bonito, bem equipado e bem localizado.
O staff é muito amigável e gentil.
