We recently stayed at Riad Ghemza for 4 nights. It was our first time in Marrakech and we were extremely glad that we chose this particular accommodation. The Riad is very centrally located in the old city. But it's hidden in a small alley way. When inside you barely here any noises from the busy life outside on the streets. We had two double rooms that were nicely decorated and very clean. The whole house in fact is very nice. There are just 5 rooms and we had the pleasure of being the only guests at the time. The hosts are so nice and extremely helpful. They explained all about the city, it's people and the culture and even went out of their way to show us around and give directions. No request seems to be too much. The breakfast is amazing and plentiful. We highly recommend staying at Riad Ghemza, especially if it's your first time in Marrakech. For us it was a home away from home. A relaxing place to unwind after being out in the busy streets of Marrakech. We were so delighted to be guests of the nicest hosts and the lovely and cuddly house cat "Poupoune" (sorry, if we spelled the name wrong). It was brilliant that Fabien our host organized taxis, restaurant reservations and even a private driver (who turned out to be one of the nicest guys we met there) to go all the way to Essaouira for a day trip.

Response from Riad Ghemza Marrakech:
Dear Guests, You have booked 15 days before arrival and we have cancelled it because you were more people than what was available. It took two days for us and Airbnb to get in touch with you and explain this. We have prefered to cancel it because we always want to welcome guests the best way. We wish you a very good journey in Marrakech.

I thoroughly recommend this place if you want to get an authentic experience of Marrakech. The facilities are clean and comfortable and Fabien and the team are wonderful hosts. They took excellent care of us, giving tips on how to haggle, where to eat & organising excursions. This is excellent value for money & really worth it if you are lucky enough to book a room here. If this is your first time to Marrakech, you will be alarmed by all of the narrow winding roads, but it is safe and eventually you'll get to know your way around. A top class venue.

We had a great stay at Riad Ghemza! We were dropped off in Mokef square after trekking in the Atlas Mountains, and had a carosa lead us to the front door at Fabien's recommendation. We were pretty tired and couldn't imagine anything better than being greeted with the mint tea and biscuits that were put out for us! We were then shown to our room (Sahara room). Everything was very clean and pleasant, and we especially appreciated the lovely shower! There was a beautiful spread for breakfast every morning, and we enjoyed dinner there one night as well. Fabien and his wife were very friendly and helpful, and gave us some good recommendations about things to do and see in Marrakech. We would definitely stay at Riad Ghemza again!
