  • 8.0.Very Good

    Excellent host, and located to explore the Medina

    Riad host was most gracious, entertaining and helpful - directing us where to park a rental car nearby in a secure location and meeting us there to assist us to find the hotel location. Excellent breakfast and very nice in house Hammam as well. Finding a single bed bug was the only downside, but as it was the only one could have hitched a ride from other travelers...the mattresses in the family sized room were otherwise very clean.

  • 2.0.Poor

    My poor rating of Riad Alaka is due to one specific incident that occurred during my stay here. I stayed at Riad Alaka for 2 nights 15-16 October and booked a hammam treatment. I was originally told by the manager on duty that the cost would be 15 euros. However, after the hammam was finished and upon check out, the manager on duty (Aziz) told me that it was 15 euros plus an additional 15 euros for local tax, for a total of 30 euros. (This would essentially be a 100% tax.) I contacted various other local hammams in Marrakech and was told that "there is no taxes anywhere you go here , the price you pay includes everything , and not the clients who pay the taxes." As a result, I feel completely deceived and cheated by the manager on duty. Other than him, the rest of the staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. The place itself is traditionally decorated and clean, and the free breakfast provided is very authentic and delicious as well. The location is also only about a 15-20 minute walk to Koutobia/Jama El f’na Square. Had I not been conned by the manager on duty, I would have given Riad Alaka a much better rating. If you decide to stay here, I would highly recommend booking through third-party sites (such as Expedia,, etc.) just to have your booking confirmed and everything pre-paid in full to avoid situations like mine.

    We are pleased by the willingness of staff to help. We arrived at the Riad around 10pm due to the delay caused by the day trip and have to leave early next morning. During our 10 hour stay in the Riad, the staff prepared our dinner as well as breakfast and helped to hire taxi for us. The Riad is located at the edge of Médina with easy to reach many places. It is very crowded at night market outside. However, it is quiet inside the Riad. The breakfast could be improved.

    Many thanks for everything!

    The Riad is charming! Pascal, Aziz and their team were welcoming and very caring. From arranging airport transfers to the fabulous vegan meals that Aziz prepared just for me, the experience was exactly what we wanted. The location was in a more local area although close enough to a main road with taxis but being first timers and after exhausting days of sightseeing, we opted to dine in for three nights. Simply wonderful.

    Sono stato una notte con la famiglia al Riad Alaka. Buona posizione, accoglienza calorosa. Il posto è molto bello e ben tenuto. Letti comodi e jacuzzi sul terrazzo. Colazione abbondante e di buona qualità. Prezzo nella media.
