Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Where does one start? There are only superlatives to be showered on the Riad. From the moment we got in contact with Nico to the second we got inthe taxi and waved goodbye to Moha after five wonderful days, we were treated with the best of hospitality. There were ten of us, 8 adults and 2 children and there were no complaints... apart from why didn't we book longer. The Riad is in a neighbourhood which puts life in perspective, but the people were helpful, smiling, and we found a bakery, and a few shops for necessities. Moha and Fati were brilliant and extremely helpful and we can really recommend this to anyone. We would even encourage anyone to contact us if you have questions. If there is anything to improve it could be the beds, they are a bit hard, but the wonderful rooms, the interior design, the relaxing earthy colours and textures just makes you relax. The sound of the prayers from the mosque, the birds, all blend to just fill you with joy. Marrakech is vibrant, Morrockans are extremely friendly and if you put your hand on your heart and show that you are not interested in buying things they leave you. "Barakllfik" and they understand. There are contrasts. Get over those and let Moha and Fati take care of you and make you some cous cous or omlettes. You will not be disappointed... say hi to Moha and Fati from us...

    Response from Nicolas:

    Dear Dominic, may thanks for your warm comment, You are fantastic guests. I know for the beds ;) but we've had to change it as it was perceived as too soft by guests before. My house is your house and again many thanks for visiting us, and please send pictures :) Take care.Nico

  • Nice, simple Riad in non touristic part of Marakesh. Moha, the host was great: friendly and helpful. We also had a delicious diner cooked by Fati.

  • Very nice place ! Nicolas is very helpful, even from France, if needed. Moha has done everything he could to make my stay comfortable. If I have to balance, the location is ok, but not the nearest from the main place. I definitely recommend this Riad ! Hope to come back soon !

  • A wonderful experience, especially for our first night in Marrakech. It was a soothing refuge in the midst of the exciting hustle and bustle of the medina.
    Conveniently located and easy to get around the city on foot and by cab or bus. Efficiently run by Moha, who patiently answered all of our questions and made everything easier for us during our stay.
    Highly recommended!

  • Stayed at Riad Moderne in Nov 2013 and I have to say it is one of the highlights of my trip to Morocco! From the moment my friend and I walked out of the airport to the time we left, Moha made sure we were taken well cared of. We were greeted with hot mint tea upon our arrival and were led to our clean and tastefully decorated room and it did not hurt we got the room with the little balcony! Rooms are as described. The Riad is located inside the old medina therefore expect to be in the middle of Marrakech action , where you can witness the locals go about their daily lives. For someone used to white picket fence and the cookie cutter type of environment, the old medina might be a bit of a shock. But for the open minded and adventurous, you will find this place a feast for the senses. I will not hesitate to come back to Riad Moderne in the future!

  • There is not much I can say that has not already been said about this wonderful Riad. Every aspect of our stay here was beyond expectations. Moha and Fati were wonderful. The help Moha gave us was wonderful and the trips he organised really were the highlights of the holiday. I would not hesitate in booking this Riad again. From the start of our booking with Nico, his excellent advice and information right through to the end of the Holiday was perfect.

  • Nicolas' riad is really great - one of the best we've been to in Morocco! It's stylish, homy, clean, the staff is nice (Moha is really helpful and Fati is a great cook!). What makes this riad so special is the host - Nicolas is a nice guy, friendly, he gave us a warm welcome and helped us with everything (his responses were "super speedy"). Thanks, Nico! Highly recommended!!!
