A truly fantastic and unforgettable experience.
The riad is stunning, very comfortable, well maintained and spotless. From the moment we walked through the door we were impacted by the calm atmosphere and beautiful design.
The caretaker, Aziz; always happy, warm and smiling; had great attention to detail and really made our stay special. At the end he felt like an old friend and we were sad to say goodbye.
I very highly recommend Riad Ethnique to anyone going to Marrakesh and will definitely stay there again. Thank you Aziz, Paolo and Cristina.
This was a great place to stay in Marrakech! Within walking distance of the medina and some lovely restaurants etc. (Try Limoni or Le Jardin). The space was perfect for our group of 6 with plenty of varied chill out areas. Only downside was that we couldn't spend both time in the Riad *and* time out and about seeing things in Marrakesh - Next time we should stay for longer! All add-ons such as airport transfer and meal in the accommodation on the first night (delicious!) were exemplary. Paolo and Cristina were always very prompt in their replies and ultimately flexible - Thank you! And Aziz the host was friendly and helpful - He accommodated our request for a different breakfast on one of the days, helped us find a pick up point for a day tour and pointed us in the direction of local supermarket where we could buy some beers - All beyond the call of duty! He was also very respectful, seemingly making himself scarce when we were in the property. Highly recommended place to stay. Thank you all involved!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Riad Ethnique. Aziz was waiting for us when we arrived and had organised the water and juice that we had requested.
The rooms were really comfortable and we loved the outside space as well as the living space downstairs.
The Moroccan pancakes and fresh orange juice hit the spot in the mornings.
The location was really handy for everywhere we wanted to visit and the souks are much more pleasant than the ones off the main square.
Beautiful Riad and great service. Slight issue with alleged damage, however, resolved quickly and amicably. Great stay overall!
Paolo and Cristina's riad was amazing! It was so beautiful, spacious and clean. It was the perfect peaceful respite from the bustle of Marrakech.
The neighborhood felt very safe and provided a taste of real Marrakech.
Aziz was extremely helpful. He prepared a delicious breakfast each morning and was accessible if we needed anything. It was so great getting to know him!
Definitely arrange for transport from the airport. At 15 euro, it is a deal and would be very difficult to find on your own.
If we visit Marrakech again, we will definitely stay here again.
Our stay in Marrakech was wonderful especially due to Paolo and Cristina's riad.
We had a very great time.
The furniture are well chosen
It's perfectly located in the médina.
We were welcome by Aziz who gave us all the information we needed to explore marrakech. He just made our stay very Pleasant Thanks to his smile and his so tasteful breakfast.
Hope to be able one day to stay again in Paolo and Cristina 's riad.
This is one of the most magical places we've ever stayed. Aziz, the housekeeper, is lovely and very helpful. He took us to the market, showed us the best vegetable vendors -- even hooked us up with charcoal for the rooftop BBQ! The space itself is wonderful. Very calm, clean... Stunning really! Its located on the farside of the souks from "the square" and a nice walk from Gueliz. Would definitely recommend it!
