  • As a female travelling by herself to Marrakech for the first time, Amine made my stay very comfortable and enjoyable. The pre-arranged taxi from the Airport was extremely helpful as I had a late incoming flight. Amine was a wonderful host, making breakfast in the morning, and providing advice on places to visit and tours to take. My stay was brief, but he was able to provide great recommendations on things to do, and places to go, helping me make the best use of my time in Morocco. He is very personable, yet professional and I felt very comfortable staying with him, and having him as a personal guide especially as I was travelling on my own. I would research activities and costs for value-added services a bit more, prior to agreeing, but overall I was satisfied by the service that I got. The riad itself is nicely located, not far from the city square, but quite as well. His home is humble and simple, however you get the personal touch from a local which I think is invaluable. I would not to hesitate to recommend this accomodation to others, particularly when travelling by yourself or with a small group.

  • ciao Amin! il soggiorno nel Riad è stato al di sopra delle nostre aspettative e ti ringraziamo per la disponibilità offertaci. la camera era molto pulita, e la location molto confortevole e vicina alla piazza el fna. per non dimenticare il tè buonissimo che ci offrivi ogni colazione..penso di non averne assaggiato di più buoni durante tutto il soggiorno a marrakech. un abbraccio e un Arrivederci a presto da peppe e vvale.

  • Na wykupione 5 noclegów ze śniadaniem nie otrzymałam śniadania ani razu... powinnam zażądać od Airbnb zwrotu pieniędzy. Nie polecam kobietom podróżującym samotnie – wieczorem niebezpiecznie, nie ma możliwości podjechania taksówką. Proponowana woda do kawy / własnej / bezpośrednio z bojlera - nieprzegotowana…- problemy żołądkowe. Jestem zawiedziona tym bardziej, że pierwsze dni pobytu spędziłam w hotelu "Ali" za te same pieniądze z pysznymi śniadaniami, w „o niebo” lepszych warunkach - przy placu Jamma El Fna.

  • Hi, my stay in amalia riad was good. Amine is friendly, the room cozy and the location is centered. The breakfast is tasty. It's a shame that there were not more creps! :-). I recomand this place to spend several days in marrakech.

  • It was a pleasure and honor to spend a few days with Amine. Amine has a refreshing and wonderful perspective on life, contentment and ultimately happiness. Next time I am in Marrakech, I will stay with Amine again, in the hope that he can guide me into the Sahara and share more of his life philosophy with me. Amine, thank you for making our stay cozy and the most pleasant. A special thanks to Rika who has been most kind and helpful. Have lots of fun in your world travels. And hola to our "neighbour" Tomas (with hugs to Margarita).

  • we've spent several days at amine's place: It's not very big, but big enough and very cosy and relaxed! located very good! Everything is very clean and the breakfast at the roof terrace was great! Amine is a great host, especially for people, who are visiting marrakech the first time. He helped us a lot in finding good spots, the best way to things and we also spent a lot of time talking about different cultures and so on... We also went with Amine to a three days roundtrip to the atlas and the dessert.. He is a really good guide as well, especially if you don't want to go to the very touristic places and see more from the real morocco and never been to morocco before - He was a big help and a very friendly, funny and relaxed companion :)
    >> good guy - go there!

  • Ich schließe mich den vielen positiven Bewertungen an! Das Riad ist sehr klein und sehr einfach, dafür intim und gemütlich. Amine ist ein Original, und es ist ganz reizvoll, eine Zeit lang sein Leben zu teilen; er ist sehr hilfsbereit und warmherzig. Sein Wüstenausflug mag etwas teurer sein als die von den Reisebüros (individuell, mit eigenem Auto), aber es lohnt sich, mit ihm zu fahren, weil er abseits des Tourismus besondere Erlebnisse anbietet!

    I can only add my positive comments to the many positive ones given earlier! The riad is very small and very simple, but cozy and intimate, and Amine is truely very helpfull and warmhearted. Hisx desert-excursion may cost a bit more than the ones offered by the agencies, but it is worth it, since he takes you to very special places not touched by the mass tourism. A perfect place for low budget travellers looking for a special experience!

  • Stay at Amines..truly a very personal experience..he was the nicest and most helpful host you could find. Riad is centrally located very near to souqs and if you follow Amines direction 5 minutes away from Jema Al fena square ..Red room I was staying in was small but very nicely decorated. Breakfast in the morning and late night Pasta dinner once not the tastiest of the Morrocon food :) but yes the most filling with interesting company of bobs and his wife. .I had the privilege to spend time with other guests Rachel, Bob and Jane, Jacqueline.All paid trip to mountains and saffron farm on the way was amazing , a tad expensive for just a day though I enjoyed the tasty tangine food at the top. Amine was really kind on my last day as I had to travel to Casa via train. All in all a great trip I will surely recommend it for single travelers and couples (website hidden) : Amine is a good chess player though can be beaten make sure to put your bets on before beginning the play..:)

  • Amine is, from start to finish, a really friendly, helpful and well-organized host. His Riad 'Amalia' is very central located in the Medina district, which makes it easy to walk to every sight. On top of that, he serves a daily breakfast! To summarize, I had a wonderful time in Marrakech and would happily come back to Amine. If you're looking for a real-Marrakech experience, look no further!

  • My brother and I were in Marrakesh Jan. 15-17 and we stayed with Amine at his home, Riad Amalia, while we were there. It was lovely! He has two bedrooms available, which are both beautifully decorated and have wonderful Moroccan craftsmanship throughout. Both rooms are equipped with an air conditioning unit that also operates as a heater, which was great because it was quite chilly in Marrakesh in January. There is a washroom with toilet on the first floor adjoining the living room, and then a shower and toilet on the third floor adjoining a rooftop terrace and kitchen. The bedrooms are in the middle on the second floor. Amine shared with us that he built / designed his home himself, and we thought he did a wonderful job. It was very clean, comfy and welcoming!

    Amine is also a wonderful host. He met us in the square as promised and showed us an easy route to navigate the medina to his home so that we would know our way a round a bit. He has a general love of people and cultures and has a way of making you feel right at home during your stay. He provided great tips on things we should check out during our visit, and even took us to a traditional pharmacy to learn about Royal Tea. He went out of his way on several other occasions to ensure we had the most authentic and enjoyable experience possible. We were truly grateful for his guidance and kindness!
