I had a wonderful time at the riad, it's so peaceful and relaxing. The staff are helpful and kind, and the food is wonderful! I got the room I asked for and I slept really well. The staff are so acomadating you get a lovely breakfast when you wake up that will set you up for your day of touring the streets or Marrkesh. Thank you to all the staff here for making may stay so comfortable. I will be coming back for sure :)
Riad Shaden is a piece of haven deep in the colorful and bustling Medina. Youssef and Said were extremely friendly and helpful. I had some minor issues with my reserved room, Youssef switched me to a much bigger one right away without charging me extra for it. I highly recommend Riad Shaden!

About the Host, Shona
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.
