About this listing
Riad Hania is a cosy but sleek place, decorated in a modern and clean style where small details take prevalence. The atmosphere is light and fresh with natural plants having a big role in this feeling.
The riad disposes of 3 bedrooms (all with en suite bathroom and air conditioning), one living room, one kitchen, one hammam (traditional Moroccan steam bath) and a terrace with an indoor pool. The living room has air conditioning, indoor fireplace for chilly nights, television and DVD player. The kitchen has a big fridge, a stove and plenty of storage room. The hammam can be used by 4 persons simultaneously and requires about two hours to heat before usage. The use of the hammam as well as of the indoor pool are included in the price, so you can use them as much as you'd like during your stay.
Guest can expect comfortable accommodation and cleanness with amenities installed to make their stay as pleasant as possible. As usual, breakfast is included in the price and served where guests desire. Cleanness is assured by the daily presence of a housemaid (also in charge of cooking) and maintenance is taken care of by the host.
The neighbourhood is very popular among locals and tourists, being a great spot to explore the souks and main monuments and attractions of Marrakech such as the Jema el Fna Square, Madrasa Ben Youssef, Museum of Marrakech and still within walking distance the Bahia and Badi Palaces. There is a wide offer of dining options (Cafe Arabe, Cafe Bougainvillean, Terrase des Epices) and groceries shops as well as several souvenirs and moroccan handcraft shops.
For public transportation, you can head to the Jema el Fna Square for the city bus or the closer Bab Laksour for a taxi. There are car-parking facilities in the vicinity as well.
We are also available to organize day excursions to nearby places like the Ourika valley, Ouzoud Waterfalls or Essaouira and longer excursions to the desert like Zagora or Merzouga. Excursions to other places are also available upon request.
Be respectful to the neighbours and staff as well as to other guests of the Riad. This ensures that, in case of conflict, people are always polite to each other without insults or scandal.
Bear in mind that Morocco is a Muslim country and although alcohol is sold on shops and supermarkets, consumption is only allowed indoors and it is strictly forbidden by law to drink it on the streets.
Jawad kindly arranged transport for us to our accommodation which was friendly. He met us nearby and we walked with him into the Medina. The apartment was perfect for us, clean and quiet. Having not traveled to Marrakesh before we had no idea where we were going so he kindly explained our where about's and showed me how to find the city square where everything happens and it was about a five minute walk which again was perfect for us. We were given a very sweet breakfast which was made for us every morning. Jawad recommended us to a local spa and booked us in which was brilliant and highly recommend this too. All in all we loved our time with Jawad and Marrakesh so would thoroughly recommend this place to stay! He personally drove us to the airport and we stopped to see the camels on the way which made our trip that even a little bit better. Thank you Jawad!
This Riad was excellent. First thing I would say is that it was Cold at night in Marrakech and it was so great to have in room heaters, and a common room that was sealed off from the outside by glass doors. The location was excellent for being inside the Medina and among the souks. Quiet at night but right in the action. With double doors to the outside safety and security was certainly felt. The beds were comfy, the showers and bathrooms excellent and Amina our housekeep was AMAZING. Each morning we had the most delicious Orange Juice, different breads, crapes and coffee. She would have our b-fast ready at any time that was convenient for us.
DEFINITELY TRY HER DINNER - we asked to have a dinner in one night and Amina made the most delicious assortment of Moroccan Salads and an amazing Lamb Tajine...sooo good!!!
What can I say about Jawad except - AWESOME!! from the moment we started communicating on airbnb he was quick to respond, provided thorough information and was very flexible in making our arrangements perfect. He arranged Airport Pick Up and it was so nice to get off the plane and be greeted by a man with a sign.
During our stay he was the perfect host: he gave us the space we needed but always checked in to see if he could help. One morning we woke up at 10am and wanted to do an excursion for camel riding and he made it happen that same day. Jawad is there to escort you if needed, guide you when lost and just be a great resource for any of your needs. He is the perfect Concierge for a AirBNB setting.
If you are considering 2 airbnb places, Jawad is a huge asset that should not be overlooked. So Cool!
