Staying at this Riad was one of the best parts about our stay in Marrakesh. Location was great, close to the Medina and other important places. Youseff was very hospitable and an awesome person, he helped us to go around and also the breakfast every morning was amazing. Would definitely stay here again

We had a fantastic stay at Shona's place in Marrakesh. Siad met us in the main Square in Old Town and walked us to the place which is about a 15-20min walk through the souks (markets). We were pleasantly surprised to see the place which was very clean and had plenty of space. The rooftop was fantastic for catching some sunshine during the day away from the hustle & bustle below. A traditional, and very delicious, breakfast was provided each morning and we had tea on arrival. Great location if you want to be out of the main hectic area, but close enough to walk during the day or evening. Shona was very quick on response and very helpful. Highly recommend and would definitely stay again. Thank you!

Had a lovely stay at Riad Shaden. It started well when Shona offered to make the room into 3 single beds (rather than double plus single) for me and my two student daughters and this level of person-centred care continued. Was met at airport by cheery driver with helpful info about what we were driving past. Then the welcoming mint tea and pretty room. The Riad is not in the main tourist area and we liked being in a more normal part of old town and soon got used to locating our local shop and street. The walk to main square takes 15-20mins depending on how busy the streets near tourist area are- and there is so much life to see enroute. Great breakfast, roof terrace, cookery lesson and hamam all organised by the Riad.

Hi, I'm Shona and I live in Edinburgh, although I like to spend as much of my time in Marrakech as I can. I have been visiting Morocco for over 20 years, and I bought my first riad there in 2007. Riad Shaden is my second guesthouse in Marrakech, and I bought it in 2010.
I love the medina of Marrakech and I love the traditional riad houses, which give visitors a unique holiday experience.
Riad Shaden has a staff of 4, managed by Youssef, who speaks English, French and Spanish. He is assisted by Said, who also speaks English and French. We also have Saadia and Sanaa, who will cook and clean for you during your stay.
Our driver, Abdul, also speaks English, and will pick you up from the airport on arrival. He can also take you on excursions from Marrakech, to the mountains, the desert or the coast. Just ask for details.
We rent individual rooms or the whole property, and we love to cater for special events, birthdays etc. Let us know your requirements when you book, and our team will look after you all the way.
