We stayed at this very local house just outside of the Medina for three nights in March. We didn't meet Youssef but he was helpful in organising a lift from the airport.
This place was absolutely perfect and what we had in mind when staying in Marrakech. The atmosphere was great, the locals were lovely and helpful and the fact that it was our very own complex with security and shops around made us feel extremely comfortable. Taxi's to most places (within 10minutes drive) were no more than 40dh and the security were happy to help get us the taxis when needed. Both Youssef and his partner who greeted us were extremely helpful and very kind whenever we needed anything, they were able to deliver. On leaving the apartment, his partner was superb and such a nice guy! The complex was very picturesque and delightful. Loved the bathrooms especially!!
El Riad de Youssef es muy amplio y agradable, fresco en el interior y cálido en la terraza. Está en una urbanización muy tranquila y segura, con tiendas, farmacia y restaurantes. Además está ubicada a cinco minutos a píe de dos entradas a la Medina y un euro en taxi de la ciudad moderna y de la plaza Jemaa el Fná. Si ha habido algún problema en la casa, hemos contactado con el dueño y lo ha resuelto inmediatamente. Youssef es muy voluntarioso y se preocupa por la comodidad y bienestar de sus huéspedes. Hemos pasado dos meses muy agradables en su Riad y lo recomendamos para una visita prolongada a Marrakech.
Youssef's Riad is very spacious and nice, cool inside and warm on the terrace. It is in a very quiet and sure complex, with shops, pharmacy and restaurants. It is located five minutes walk from two gates to the Medina and one euro taxi ride from the modern city and the Jemaa el Fna square. If there has been any problem in the house, we have contacted the owner and he has resolved it immediately. Youssef is very willful and cares about the comfort and well-being of its guests. We have spent two very pleasant months in his Riad and we recommend it for an extended visit to Marrakech.

About the Host, Youssef
Live and work in New York City for 15 years, originally from Marrakech, Morocco. When I was in Congo DRC for a UN mission, I used to get R&R (Rest and Recuperation) every 8 weeks, since then I felt in love with travelling to remote places from Zanzibar to Thailand, meeting locals and sharing their culture, food and social life. I'm taking my family on-board of this life style of travelling and meeting people from different cultures and places to have a wealth of experience being in different places, meeting people and cultures from around the world, and sharing it with others.
