Thanks for a lovely stay

The courtyard of the Riad is amazing and calming. Our bedroom was spotless and very nicely decorated, and the bed was comfortable. The staff members are all lovely and made us feel at home. We had dinner at the Riad the first night, and it was delicious. The riad is located in a buzzing area and close to the exciting medina. We’re glad we picked Riad Azoulay and definitely recommend!

Out of this world, definitely a must visit

We loved absolutely everything about this Riad, staff, location, food, facilities everything was just stunning. Right in the heart of the medina and staff who made us feel right at home in Morocco, couldn’t recommend it enough

Leaving lol

I have made the decision this is the only Riad I will ever stay when visiting Marrakesh!!! I got a room for my mum for o

EVERYTHING, I actually don't really put effort in reviews but I really want to do something back to show gratitude to how amazing the staff was, I will never get over the smell of the rooms, the cleanliness, the service, the architecture

Absolutely nothing, I would just make people who aren't Moroccan like myself or aren't familiar with the medinas little streets that you may have to walk 2 to 5 minutes from where taxi will drop you to the riad itself as the idea of these is for you to live the local traditional experience so they're hidden gems rather than hotels on the main streets

The staff were amazing. They were helpful, friendly. words are not enough. The Riad is beautiful. Rooms cleaned everyday, they provide some fruit and snacks. Breakfast is delicious. If you’re in Marrakech, this is the place to book

The most beautiful Riad

this riad was phenomenal! a little hidden gem, not only is the actual hotel/rooms beautiful, but the service is also amazing and friendly. We ate dinner there for 3 nights and it was such a highlight of our trip, every meal was fresh, authentic and delicious. highly recommend if you’re going to Marrakech!

A synesthetic experience

Probably one of the best accommodation experiences I've had in my life. Staff is ultra friendly and helpful, with mentions to Said and Abdul, who helped us with orientations surrounding , booking dinner reservations, always with a smile on the face. Rooms were really clean and comfortable, and we had an everyday treat waiting for us everytime we'd come back from the daily tours. Food was delicious with plenty of variety in the breakfast and a top experience with the extra dinner menu we bought (31 € per person) when they happily served the wine we brought from the market. Location was perfect, 5 minute walk from Bahia and Badi palace, close enough from the square and the medina souks, in the middle of the less touristic spices market and the Mebllah neighborhood. And at last, the overall vibe of the place is impeccable with an extremely well planned decoration, sound and scents (I literally took around 200 pics of the place). It was always a pleasure going back to Azoulay after a busy day, and we hope to come back someday :)

Nothing really. It's important to highlight that Azoulay is more costly than Marrakech average and in comparison with our other accommodations in Morocco, but we can't say it was not worth it. Azoulay put the bar really high for the other places we stayed during our trip.

A gorgeous sanctuary

this is the perfect sanctuary and retreat from the bustling streets. everything about our stay was wonderful. the room was gorgeous and spacious, and the Riad itself was just stunning. there was plenty of space to spread out and enjoy a mint tea. we had dinner here one evening and we’re so glad we did - highly recommend making time in your itinerary to have dinner here. the staff were just excellent, so helpful, patient and kind. I couldn’t recommend this Riad more - simply fabulous. I know some reviews mentioned the prayer calls, I personally found them very special! particularly if you’re on the rooftop during afternoon prayers - breathtaking!

Slice of heaven

This was a slice of paradise in the middle of a very busy Marrakech. The staff could not have done more or been more accommodating/helpful. The hammam and massage was fabulous and the food was divine. I will definitely be coming back!!!


2 May 2023

Simply gorgeous!

I may say that this place is one of the most beautiful places where I have stayed. The place is gorgeous, the breakfast very good and the staff just amazing. Our stay was so good that we wanted to stay one more night. Next time i go to marrakech i will stay at Azoulay for sure.

An absolute gem of a Riad in a great location

This hotel stay was incredible. The staff were outstanding and the team should be very proud. Every little detail had been thought of and nothing was too much for the staff. They gave us excellent tips on the best shopping spots, places to eat etc. Yet one of the best meals we had was actually at the restaurant here. The desert was of the highest quality, even for western standards. The hotel was clean and very peaceful, despite all of the hustle and bustle being right outside the door. The location is excellent and I would love to visit here again in the future. Thank you for the great stay!

Stunning Riad with the most attentive staff.

Having to leave.

One of the best family vacations we've had, made wonderful by the great staff and team at Azoulay.

With an extremely courteous staff and a beautiful facility, Riad Azoulay was perfect for our stay. The breakfast was wonderful and the dinners were some of the most delicious meals we've eaten in a while. The Riad was walking distance to Bahia Palace, multiple marketplaces, and great little restaurants. The employees genuinely cared about the quality of our stay both in and out of the Riad and always checked on us to make sure we were enjoying our visit. Outstanding location and I would highly recommend to anyone visiting Marrakesh.

Visitors should be aware that the Riad isn't directly accessible by car. Once you exit a vehicle, you must do a short walk through a spice market to reach the Riad itself. The walk is easy and not very long, but the aroma of the spice market is overwhelming when you first arrive. After your initial introduction, you quickly adjust to it and don't even notice it by day 2.
