The riad " 16 " enjoys a privileged location in the heart of three neighborhoods Dar el Bacha , Riad Bab Doukkala Larouss in the heart of the authentic Medina , two minutes walk from the souks antiques , which is the most beautiful street the souk with all the " chic " shops and eight minutes walk from the Jemaa El Fna, if you do not stop along the way which is very difficult as it laughs there's beautiful things see and taste !
This area is highly secure and easy access that is not the case for all the riads in (website hidden) our riad in a quiet derb small and very well lit at night with a direct entrance on rue Dar el Bacha (where you can make you stop taxi or carriage 10 meters away from the Riad .

Praising our riad you get an excellent value for money and a location in the TOP ! That you were renting the entire riad in exclusivity, 2 or 12 people , the price is always the same !

Architecture with its arches and mosaics have attracted us , the view is magnificent . You can see the neighboring palace gardens , the Atlas Mountains and the Koutoubia . It is both a mixture of elegant oriental architecture , with a very cozy and intimate relaxing atmosphere with traditional furnishings and comfortable design.
For gourmets , you are just steps from the famous restaurant Dar Moha El Madina .
Everything is at hand or foot rather, extraordinary small local markets are missed because it is a real pleasure to choose fruit and vegetables ( cart available for shopping in the kitchen) , bakery , grocery , fish , hammam, souks , dairy for good fruit juices , pastries , pharmacy, small traditional restaurants, craft center , park, bus station etc. .
You can relax in the two lounges Moroccan Riad with the wall fountain on the sun terrace or in the patio (which is sheltered or open as you 'll want ) .

Mustapha nous attendait, comme convenu à l'aéroport.
Riad agréable, très bien situé pour un accès à pieds à un certains d'endroits incontournables avec des enfants.
Bonjour Cedrik cela nous fait plaisir que vous ayez apprécié votre séjour au riad avec les enfants. Le fait qu'il soit bien situé et à côté de sites touristiques à visiter incontournables à Marrakech est en effet très important pour faire un maximum de visites à pied. Il est appréciable de pouvoir revenir porter des affaires en cours de journée au riad ou de venir y faire une pause pour mieux repartir ensuite ... En tous les cas merci et vous êtes bienvenus quand vous le souhaitez ...
Un commentaire positif de plus !
Nous étions 7 adultes et 2 enfants, et le séjour s'est très bien passé. Les descriptions, photos et conseils de Corinne sont très justes, c'est un vrai confort.
Moustapha et Saïda sont sympathiques en plus d'être efficaces et arrangeants.
Bref, allez y !
Laurent nous sommes ravis de votre commentaire et vous en remercions. Ravis que votre séjour se doit bien passé et que vous ayez trouvées justes les photos et les descriptions ! Tres heureux que nos petits conseils dans le Book remis avant votre séjour vous soient utiles. Nous transmettons bien entendu vos compliments a Mustapha et Saida qui sont bien adorables et nous aident beaucoup ! Vous êtes les bienvenus au riad le 16 quand vous aurez envie de revenir à Marrakech ! Toutes nos amitiés
We spent nine nights at Riad 16, our first visit to Marrakech, a family with three children. This riad is in a perfect location to explore the city, being close to the souks, the Jemaa El Fba and the heart of the medina. The riad is located down an alleyway which is typical of the medina but it is well lit at night and the neighbours are very friendly.
The riad is arranged on three floors, arranged around a central courtyard. The top floor is a terrace which is totally private, with a shower to cool off under and star lit nights to ponder. Our children appreciated the excellent wifi after testing days wandering the city and dodging the mopeds.
We found it very easy to get about using the cost effective taxis. Mustapha was very helpful, trying to help us at every turn. He arranged for Said to collect us from the airport which is essential as you will find it hard to find the riad the first time. Mustapha also arranged for Said to take us to Zagora for camel rides and a night in the desert. Nothing was too much trouble for Said and he went out of his way to make it a special trip.
We took up the option for Saida to cook an evening meal which was cooked in house but the whole atmosphere was quite odd, the tajina fine but it was expensive compared to a night out at a good restaurant. Getting an idea of what something is going to cost is quite hard work but that is the Moroccan way I guess, where people are used to haggling in the souk.
Corrine and Fabrice have a great riad. They are excellent hosts, keeping in touch and providing us with lots of information before we arrived. They put us in contact with Mustapha and from the moment of arrival we felt very much at home. Marrakech is a chaotic city, fascinating, colourful and full of contradictions. After a manic day Riad 16 is a wonderful oasis to return to, to relax and recover.
Bonjour Ian, Votre commentaire nous fait très plaisir. Nous sommes ravis que notre riad vous ai plu. C'est vrai que sa situation, sa tranquillité, et sa sécurité sont des vrais plus. Les voisins adorables aussi d'ailleurs rires ! Nous sommes contents de savoir que notre book avec toutes les informations sur Marrakech vous ont été utiles. Mustapha est d'une grande aide et adorable !
En ce qui concerne les excursions de Mustapha nous sommes très heureux que cela vous ai satisfait.
Ces services (excursions, préparation de repas etc.) ont été mises en place pour le confort des clients ( car beaucoup en faisaient la demande) mais ils ne sont en aucun cas obligatoires. Il est bien important de vous mettre en accord pour le prix avant d'y avoir recours. Nous ne prenons absolument aucune commission sur ces services et n'avons rien à y voir ... A la décharge de Saïda, si son prix est équivalent à un restaurant, je sais que sa cuisine est raffinée et délicieuse. Il est bien évident que lors de ses achats et de ses préparations, cela coûte plus cher que lorsqu'on achète en gros pour un restaurant. En plus, elle vient à domicile et la préparation est souvent longue ... donc un prix équivalent à un restaurant me paraît assez normal. Nous serons ravis de vous accueillir avec vos enfants lors d'un nouveau séjour et vous remercions encore pour ce très bon commentaire.
The riad was in a good location. Very quiet, seemed like an oasis in a busy city. A bit of a walk to the Jemaa el-Fnaa, and many restaurants but there are shortcuts through the souks if you know your way. The riad itself was fantastic, a true Marrakesh experience. I felt safe walking in the area with my family after dark. Overall highly recommend. One thing I would stay away from is using the recommended transport option. Mustapha was very helpful, but he subcontracts his services and his other drivers are not recommended.
Bonjour, Nous sommes ravis que vous ayez aimé votre séjour au riad. C'est vrai que c'est un petit oasis de tranquillité ce riad et pourtant nous sommes à deux pas de tout. Je pense que le grand et magnifique parc de notre voisin avec ses roseaux palmiers etc absorbe tous les bruits de la ville ! Et les petits oiseaux un vrai bonheur. concernant Mustapha je vais lui faire remonter le message . Mustapha travaille pour nous en tant que gardien. Son activité de taxi et d'excursion ne nous regarde en rien car nous ne prenons aucune commission. La plupart des personnes qui y ont eu recours sont toujours très contents en général. Je vais lui transmettre votre observation afin qu'il y remédie car sinon je sais que les prix qu'il pratique pour ce qu'il propose sont très raisonnables. Merci et à très bientôt pour une autre visite au riad le 16
Hello, We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at the riad. It is true that it is a small oasis of tranquility riad and yet we are close to everything. I think the big and beautiful park our neighbor with palm reeds etc absorbs all the noises of the city! And small birds a treat. Mustapha for I will make him back the message. Mustapha works for us as a guardian . His taxi and tour activity is watching us at all because we do not take any commission. Most people who have used it are always very happy in general. I'll send it your observation so that there remedied otherwise I know the prices charged for what it offers are very reasonable. Thank you and see you soon for another visit to the riad 16
Nous avons passé une semaine en famille avec 2 très jeunes enfants. Tout était parfait très bon accueil de Mustapha dès l'aéroport comme nous l'avions demandé. La maison est effectivement très bien située et équipée. On est à la fois tranquille comme chez soi et si besoin Mustapha ou Saida sont immédiatement disponibles. Corine et Fabrice ont répondu très rapidement à toutes nos questions avant notre départ. Nous sommes prêts à y retourner.
Great place in Marrakech! Fantastic rooms and great communication. We were given loads of information. Mustapha was a great local host. Thank you Corinne for sharing your lovely riad with us. We had a most enjoyable stay! Highly recommended.
We had a great time in Marrakech and would highly recommend Riad 16 as a good value, well located place to stay. Riad 16 is located a short walk through the Souks from Jamaa El Fna square. It is a very nicely decorated with lots of character and has plenty of space for 6 guests or more. The roof terrace is fantastic offering a peaceful place to chill out. The kitchen is well stocked with pots and pans and various food basics and has a washing machine. The living room has a TV and DVD player and a laptop with wifi. All the main rooms have heaters which was very good for the cold winter nights.
Corinne and Fabrice provided good communication and all necessary information throughout. Their housekeeper Mustapha is a nice and friendly person, he picked us up from the airport and let us into the Riad. We also used his taxi company to arrange transport to and from a remote location in Toubkal National Park in the High Atlas. He was responsive to our communications while we were in Marrakech.
We were travelling as a family group for my mother's 60th birthday and our hosts had arranged a bouquet of flowers for our arrival which was a very nice touch. Thankyou for everything.
Merci Théo pour tous ces compliments ça nous fait chaud au cœur pour nous et pour Mustapha aussi ...
Nous serons ravis de nous accueillir à Marrakech quand vous aurez envie de revenir ... Cet anniversaire était une grande occasion qu'il fallait fêter comme il se doit !!
