Highly recommended. The Riad is beautiful- simple and elegant and the staff are all lovely. Very peaceful and quiet. Brekkie was great and we also had a meal here, probably the most authentic thing we had to eat during our trip to Marrakech, delicious. Would definitely stay here again.
Das Riad mit seiner herzliche Atmosphäre ist eine Oase in der quirligen Stadt.
Das essen ist phantastisch!
Yamina und Ihr Team sind sehr hilfsbreit.
Just had the most wonderful stay at the Riad Yamina. It is a peaceful oasis from the madness of Marrakech, which has been beautifully restored and intricately decorated. It is the ultimate relaxation zone, with little noise sparing the tweeting birds.
Yamina is a bubbly, effervescent character who make us feel so welcome and at home. Moha is an absolute gentleman who looked after our every need. The girls in the kitchen prepared us an amazing breakfast every morning - pancakes, juice, yoghurt etc. - and were always friendly and smiling. We were also treated to a delicious meal on the first nice, a perfect welcome to Marrakech.
I can't fault the place at all, it was like a wee Moroccan Palace with everything we needed, and within very close reach of the Jemma el-Fna. If the sun is shining, you can lie on the roof terrace, if the nights are cold you can relax in front of the open fire with a mint tea.
So glad we decided to stay here.
I can sum up my stay at Riad Yamina in one sentence: You shouldn't stay anywhere else. Beyond the beautiful and intricate details, one of the best parts is feeling like you're part of the family! This is a true home away from home.
First of all: Big hugs to Yamina! We count the days till the next visit.
You enter Riad Yamina and you'll forget your world at home...(work, stress etc.)
We have been several times in Marrakech and we really have to say that this was the nicest Riad we have ever been.
The location is great - short walking distance to the Jmna el Fna. The Riad itself is perfectly calm, decorated with good taste, love and fantastic details. The small pool and the trees are really special :-)
The owner Yamina is always at the Riad, welcoming guests and makes you feel part of the family. The staff (very good English!) is attentive and extremely nice.
As for the rest - I think the pictures speak for themselves ;)
We will come again, more than once, that's for sure!
Another great stay at Yamina's, though unfortunately Yamina was out of town. If I'm ever back in Marrakech I'll definitely stay here!
What a great experience! The riad was so wonderful and I'd recommend it to anyone traveling to Marrakech! Yamina was soo awesome, helpful, friendly, fun and an all around lovely person. She really made our stay memorable. The rest of the staff were also super friendly and helpful. Everyone made us feel so welcome, we were sad to leave! The breakfasts were amazing and if you can't stay here, book dinner here! It was delicious, everything was fresh and homemade. They were able to accomodate both my meat esting husband and my vegetarian self. Our room was clean, quiet, and tastefully decorated. It really was just perfect! Can't wait to visit again!
PICK THIS ONE! We can't speak highly enough about our stay in Yamina's beautiful and authentic Riad. It was genuinely the best part of our experience in Marrakech and we are planning to return to stay with Yamina as soon as we can.
The riad is stunning. It has an almost magical authenticity when so many other roads look like they verge on the pastiche. The location is perfect - right in the action of the Medina but yet it is so peaceful inside. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were impeccable. The breakfasts were also lovely which is where so many other riads earned negative reviews.
What was most enjoyed however were the attentive staff and the wonderful Yamina herself. Her warmth and hospitality were amazing, she described the place as 'her house' rather than 'her business', and we were treated like old friends from the minute we stepped through the door. Throughout our stay Yamina was more than happy to arrange trips for us and help plan our days. Twice we ate in the riad and the food was fantastic (and good value). We recommended to some friends who were not staying in the riad to book in just for dinner as it was better than what we had eaten anywhere else.
We really can't recommend this place highly enough. We were reluctant to leave but we know that we will definitely return to Marrakech if only to stay in riad Yamina again.
The location was perfect -- super easy to find (though the directions did initially feel quite intimidating). Such a peaceful oasis, it couldn't have been more perfect. The room was great, nice and clean and the staff couldn't have been better -- they all knew just what we wanted before we did! We had such a great time we're staying there again at the end of our holiday in Morocco before flying home. Yamina is a FABULOUS cook -- we're still in Morocco and none of the meals have come close to comparing to the magical dinners in her riad.
Beautiful and clean riad just moments away from all of the hustle and bustle of the main square.
We were greeted by Moha (with some delicious mint tea!), who was incredibly helpful and attentive; he gave us a map and marked on it and went through some places of interest, and gave us some useful advice for handling ourselves in marrakesh.
The room was lovely; very clean with fresh towels everyday. Breakfast was delicious and slightly different every day (we were there 3days) which was great.
We would definitely recommend staying here!
HI my name is Eileen and I have had the pleasure of staying at Riad Yamina three times now over the past year and a half and have been very much at the heart of helping Yamina put the final touches to the riad which is also her home from home. The riad for me is a wonderful place for relaxation and getting away from it all as it is the one place I can go to get pampered and spoilt. We have known each other now for over 10 years and have over time developed a really close, warm friendship. Yamina is a really giving, honest and open person and makes everyone feel welcome, from the moment they meet her. she is vivacious, and full of life, always armed with a smile and goes out of her way to make you feel looked after while in her company or in her home. I would recommend Yamina to anyone as she has that rare capacity for making you feel welcomed and special regardless of the fact that she may have only just been introduced to you. She is a fantastic host and a wonderful friend.
