... The natural scenery perfectly balanced with a sprinkling of mud villages which of course blended so well with their surroundings. These villages were complimented by the contrasting mosaic crops of varied green and blonde shades which lined the valley floors.

As I write this now it seems like a really silly thing to get excited about but after 2 months in India we have come to expect nothing from anywhere and always carry our own toilet paper and hand soap. Each couchette compartment had 4 beds in it and so we shared ours with a local man who spent most of his night not in the ...

Jemaa el Fna was an experience - the biggest and the most vibrant Central Square I have ever seen. Everywhere we turned, something was happening.

Historical Traveler Reviews Riad Ariha Marrakech
My 3 day stay at the Ariha was simly unforgetable. It exceeded my expectations and delivered on the promise of a romantic and exoctic oasis in the heart of Marrakech. We were welcomed by Barbara , the owner with fresh orange juice and cookies; she was a lovely and generous hostess. We had pre- arranged a vegetable tagine to be prepared for us for our first nights dinner. We took it on the roof terrace and never have my husband and I been more delighted with a meal. Everything was so wonderful. We encountered a bit of rain on our second day and quite frankly we enjoyed the romance of our room so much we took it as a cue to snuggle up and listen to the rain.
Loved Riad Ariha
Riad Ariha was a calm oasis in the middle of magical , bustling, marrakesh madina. We had a wonderful stay with Barbera and her wonderful staff. The modernisation of the riad was completed only a few months ago in an authentic style but with all mod cons. Breakfast served in the courtyard at time chosen by guests was lovely. On arrival we had a meal there which was one of the best we had in our stay in Morroco. We will return to stay there next time we visit Marrakesh

Riad Ariha is a jewel!
Riad Ariha was a wonderful little Riad in the middle of the Medina (old quarter). The Jacaranda room was absolutely perfect and our hosts were more than helpful making us feel at home. They even negotiated pricing for us for dinner and other things we wanted to bring home with us.
I can't recommend Riad Ariha highly enough.
Riad Ariha [--] para aquellos planeando visitar Marrakesh, recomendaría sumamente el mágico Riad Al Ariha en el centro de Medina. A través de la confusión de burros, carretillas, bicicletas y motocicletas, abrí una puerta, y encontré un refugio de paz y belleza. El patio con su piscinita era como un oasis, y tuve el privilegio de haber podido visitar cada una de las habitaciones únicas diseñadas con un ojo excelente al detalle más pequeño. Uno también puede admirar la vista de las Montañas Atlas desde el techo corredizo. La guinda del pastel fue el personal cariñoso y eficiente quien me hizo sentir más como un miembro de la familia que como un huésped. Uno puede pedir comidas tradicionales, las cuales conozco bien, y fueron de una calidad superior. ¡Resulta que estuve allí al mismo tiempo que un chef profesional del Reino Unido, quien estuvo tan impresionado que pidió las recetas! Para unas vacaciones inolvidables, no te pierdas el Riad.
Me hospedé en el Riad Ariha cuatro noches a finales de abril, y pasé el rato más maravilloso. El riad queda en el centro de la Medina, y el entorno del riad es hermoso y muy tranquilo con paredes limpias y blancas y 4 habitaciones hermosas y simples. Hay un techo con almohadones y sillas, al igual que un área para sentarse en un balcón al aire libre en la segunda planta, y lo hace un lugar perfecto para tomarse un té de menta después de un día de hacer turismo. El té de menta del Riad Ariha fue el mejor que tuve en todo Morocco. Además, el dueño es increíblemente servicial y responde rápidamente al correo electrónico. Y el personal del riad es extremadamente amable, y te ayudará con todas y cada una de tus sugerencias, y reservaciones a cenas y a actividades para hacer durante el día. Nunca he conocido a un personal tan amable y acogedor en ninguna otra parte. Este riad definitivamente es un descubrimiento, y lo recomiendo sumamente a cualquiera que quiera visitar Marrakech.
J'ai séjourné quatre nuits au Riad Ariha à la fin du mois d'avril et j'ai passé un moment des plus merveilleux.
Pour ceux qui ont l'intention de visiter Marrakech, je recommanderais sans réserve le magique Riad Al Ariha au centre de la Médina.
My partner and I stayed here for a few nights during our recent holiday in Morroco. Overall, we felt the Riad was pleasant and presented reasonable for money.
Positives: Modern, clean, stylish, quiet, air-conditioned (useful when you arrive in August from a rainy England), friendly staff.
Negatives: Bland breakfast, location (is a little out of the way).
I stayed in Riad Ariha for four nights at the end of April and I had the most wonderful time. The riad is in the middle of the media, and the setting of the riad is gorgeous and very tranquil, with clean, white walls and 4 beautiful, simple rooms. There is a roof with cushions and chairs, as well as a seating area on a second level balcony that is open and makes a perfect spot for mint tea after a day of touring. The mint tea at Riad Ariha was the best that I had in all of Morocco. In addition, the owner, is incredibly helpful and responds quickly to email correspondence. And the staff at the riad is extremely friendly and will help with any and all suggestions and reservations to dinners and things to do during the day. I've never found such friendly and accomodating staff anywhere else. This riad was definitely a find and I highly recommend it to anyone who visits Marrakech.
