    It was a beautifully restored riyad with tasteful modern furniture. The room we stayed was huge! The staff was friendly and helpful. We definitely recommend this place.

    My mom and I were so confused because we didn’t expect such a small entrance. Had no clue that it was a hotel until we stepped inside. The staff were very nice and friendly, but would’ve been better if the man at the reservation desk had actually known that he had guests to check in on that day.. The room was clean but cold, as the ceilings were very high. Overall was a satisfying stay but wouldn’t recommend..

    Beautiful Riad, Excellent Location

    Riad Al Assala was beautiful and in a great location. The staff were very helpful and kind. They were patient in answering all of our many questions, and always accommodating. They provided a delicious breakfast and all the coffee and mint tea we could drink through the day.

    I absolutely loved loved this Riad. The staff, Lamia and Mehdi especially so very helpful. My friend had 1000 questions and they Lamia always went the extra mile to help us as we were new to Marrakech. Breakfast was delicious and we’d always come back to a spanking clean room (sorry for the mess!) First night our WiFi was playing up, we reported the issue and the next morning the engineer was in to fix the problem. Thank you again to all staff, really made our stay pleasant

    Great location

    It was a great location. We were a group of 4 but was surprised to find some basics not already provided upon arrival. Other riads provide a large water bottle upon arrival. We got one small water bottle to share between 4 people. Toilet paper was not refilled. They also charge way too much to provide a taxi to the airport. We paid half their charge asking for a taxi nearby.

    In general we had a lovely stay. Location is perfect very close to the main market. Very helpful staff especially Lamia. Rooms downstairs need a bit of updating

    Charming stay

    Charming riad very close to the Médina. The rooms are large and clean, but the bed was lacking decent pillows. The service was amazing, it was so refreshing to see a hotel run by women in Morocco! The rooms do not have locks on the doors, but we felt safe enough to leave our things in the room while we were out (there is a safe in the room). The breakfast was very minimal, but was made fresh.

    I was expecting Riad al Assala to be good but it exceeded my expectations. The family suite was of a good size and was clean and comfortable. The rooms are set around a small courtyard and pool. A superb breakfast of freshly baked breads and cakes plus freshly squeezed orange juice set us up for the day. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the location was excellent.
