We arrived in Marakesh at the Suprtours bus station and it was a bit of a "free for all" to get a cab. We didn't do well negotiating a price unfortunately, as it all seems a tad haphazard. The cabby took us to the Medina but he wasn't sure where the Riad was so stopped about 50 to 60 feet away from where the Riad was. As soon as we were out of the cab we were surrounded by people wanting to take us to the Riad. I'm sure it was all fun to them but I was a little unnerved. We eventually had someone show us for free... we had been given prices from 20 to 100 dirham. Anyway all the noise and bustle was soon replaced by the calmness of the Riad. It was as if we'd entered another world it was so quiet compared to outside. The lady that greeted us was lovely and made us a pot of mint tea. And showed us round the Riad. We were given a room on the ground floor which only had windows in to the central area. We were shown the roof top terrace it is very restful but doesn't really have views of the city. All was calmness and beautifully decorated. The Riad is amazing and so calm but it is on a very busy road and although it is 15 mins walk in to the Main square you end up with a lot of people trying to redirect you. My advice is to always ask ladies for directions as they invariably aren't trying to sell you something.
Riad el Saygaya was such a lovely place to stay at in our time passing through Morocco that we stayed there at on the 2 occasions when we were passing through Marrakech, the staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms, terrace and especially the pool a welcome break from the madness of the souks and the medina, I would recommend el Saygaya especially if you are new to the medina! Sláinte, Shaun
Ha sido una estancia fantastica. El riad esta muy bien situado y tiene todas las comodidades posibles.
La amabilidad de los trabajadores es maxima.
Los desayunos estaban buenisimos aunque hay poca variedad.
La red wifi era devil y costaba conectarse con el movil y la tablet.
Solo hechamos en falta una television en la habitacion.
Aun asi nos volveriamos a alojar en este riad sin duda en futuros viajes.
Wonderful Riad in the Medina and within easy walking distance of most landmarks and attractions. All the amenities you could want, particularly the plunge pool for those very hot days. Staff were very polite, helpful and kind the whole stay; also a surprise appearance from the Riad's pet tortoise! Seriously. Would definitely visit again.
We're so glad you enjoyed your stay and to hear your positive feedback. We hope you will return soon!
The host was wonderful and welcomed us with Moroccan mint tea. The description and pictures were very accurate.
Thanks so much Katie - it is lovely to read your positive feedback! I hope you had a great trip in Morocco :)
Na een drukke (en warme) dag was het fijn 'thuiskomen' in El Sagaya. Vriendelijk personeel, een fles koud water en een korte duik in het zwembadje op de binnenplaats brachten de nodige verkoeling. Het dakterras is 's avonds een fijne plek om nog even van wat frisse lucht te genieten. Onze kamer was op de begane grond, lekker koel en ruim. Het was tijdens Ramadan rustig in de Riad, maar ik kan me voorstellen dat het in een drukkere periode fijner is om boven te slapen omdat je dan meer privacy hebt. De straat is minder toeristisch dan andere delen van de medina, maar binnen een kwartier ben je te voet bij alle trekpleisters van de stad.
Thank you so much Pieter - so happy to hear you enjoyed your time at the riad!
The Riad is simply amazing, very quiet, very nice, the pool is just perfect to relax after a day in the medina and the staff is just awsome!
I stayed there with two friends and we had a wonderful time! You always feel at home, the rooftop is splendid, and the rom was perfect! Very clean, safe and the area is perfect! Close to the medina door if you need a taxi, but only 15 minutes walk from the Jama Elfna square!
Go there, you won't be disappointed!
Thanks so much Yann - we are so happy you and your friends enjoyed your stay! I'm so sorry I didn't get to meet you too - next time! :-)
Mine and my three girl friends experience at Annabella's riad was absolutely amazing. It provided us with such an authentic and humbling experience. The riad was gorgeous. The location was absolutely perfect as well- a couple minute walk from the main medina and Jemaa el-Fnaa marketplace. This riad made our stay in Marrakech that much better and amazing - I highly recommend it!
Thank you so much Cecile - I'm so happy you enjoyed your stay and I hope you will return one day!
Trés bon Riad , nous y avons passé 3 jours nikel !
Le personnel à été super acceuillant et au petit soin répondant a chacune de nos demandes. Un grand merci à Moubarak !
Le riad en lui meme est trés propre les chambre également , la décoration est traditionnel , bref nous y retournerons !
We stayed two nights at Annabellas Riad. We really enjoyed the time there. Annabella and here husband are very warm hosts and whenever we had a question or a demand they were very helpful and very obliging. The Riad is quiet and calm and about 15 min away from place Jemma el Fna. If we come back to Marrakech we will definatelly stay again at Riad El Sagaya!
Thank you so much Hans! Do come back and see us :)
Nous étions très satisfaits d’avoir vous choisir notre maisons pour passer vos séjours et nous sommes ravis de vous accueillir.
Anna was very easy to deal with, lovely lady. Left the place in good condition.
