We traveled with two kids (6 and 8 years)and had a great stay at Riad Noura in Marrakesh. We were picked up at the airport by Yousef which made us feel welcome immediately. It is important to get picked up at the airport as it is very hard to find in the maze of the medina. We were served some nice mint tea and we got a quick introduction to sights, hows and buts in the medina and surroundings. Youssef is an incredibly charming and loving person who makes it nice to come back to the Riad after a stressful day out. We ate dinner at Riad Noura one night and this was nice. The food and the service was very good. It was nice to stay in one night instead of looking for a new place to eat. I recommend this We also did a tour with Caryl from Noura to Valley d´Ourika. The day out in fresh air from the Atlas mountains was welcoming after the "hustle and bustle" in Marracesh. All of the staff contributed to us feeling secure and welcome in Marrakech and we would really like to go there one more time. When we left it felt like leaving family behind, which is really the only negative thing I have to say about our stay.

Youssef goes beyond hospitality. The love he shows for his work - and that includes his cooking, guiding, driving, serving tea and fixing stuff while he manages the Riad is inspiring. He is probably one of the best persons living in the world right now. The Riad is charming. It cant get any better. It has the comfort, taste and intimacy of the best relais & chateaux hotels, but without the $$$$$$ opression and excessive pampering. It feels like home more than home. Its always sad to leave. this was my 2nd stay in the Ryad and i cant wait to come back. Woulndn't stay anywhere else in Marrakesh.

My family recently stayed at Ryad Noura and we had the most wonderful time. We landed in the evening and after a quick transfer from the airport arrived to a really warm welcome and an excellent meal which we had prearranged. The service and hospitality here was fantastic. The ryad is right in the heart of the medina - down lots of winding alleyways - but Youssef really kindly ensured we got our bearings in the morning. We felt perfectly safe returning after dark. Our room was comfortable and the whole place is really nicely designed. Our children really appreciated the plunge pool after a hot day wandering around the souks. I would thoroughly recommend this accomodation and would definitely stay here again if we go back to Marrakech.

A beautiful Morrocan retreat from all the madness of Marrakech. Thanks to Youssef you instantly feel safe and at home. We stayed 5 nights and received free pick up from airport which was a great relief - especially with the narrow alleys you are initially faced with. However, as previously mentioned Youssef takes all that worry away. Didnt try to change money at airport but plenty of bureau de change places with one just around the corner - same rate everywhere so dont waste time comparing. Often greeted with olives and nuts when seated in the public areas. Yousef always there to greet you on your return with a big friendly smile and genuinely interested in our adventures and if he could help in anyway. Would recommend a meal in the riad - lovely food and great to return to a peaceful haven and have a wonderful meal. Rooms also very comfortable and clean - with fresh towels daily. WOULD STRONGLY RECOMMEND !!

We had a very bad start with Villa Noura. Web advertised free transfer from airport for 3+ night stays. We stayed longer than 3+ nights but needed a taxi / pickup from another Riad in the city. This was a disaster. First they sent a small boy who lead us to the wrong villa. Then a driver came and blamed us for not being there! Here's where the real problem occurred. In the midst of the problem I was calling and calling from my cell phone. The person on the other end of the line hung up on me - every time. When we finally got to the Riad (after a couple of hours and a torn - new - samsonite suitcase) the owner claimed not to be in. The driver claimed he didn't work for the Riad ... and the only person who helped was the kitchen lady - Miriam - angel that she is! As it transpires the owner was in and the driver did work for the Riad - he was the do-everything guy. It is not cool to treat a problem by ignoring it ... especially when you're dealing with guests ... especially when they are new to the city and don't speak much French/Moroccan. Apart from that, the rooms were nice and certainly big enough. The food was excellent. And the service (after the initial disaster) was pretty good. We highly recommend requesting that Miriam cook a dinner for you. Her food is sublime. Yousef is also a star. He helped us with arranging car rentals, finding our way, making shishas, creating the most romantic dinner settings, organising bus tickets etc ... and always with a smile.

It was our first time in Marrakech and if we will come again, we will stay at Ryad Noura for sure. Everybody of the staff was very kind, gave us a lot of information about places, restaurants,..picked up from the airport and bought also for us the bus tickets for Essauira (we should have taken a taki to go to the bus station to buy them).The ryad is 15 minutes walking from the central square: the first day it seemed impossible to reach it alone but the day after you walk in the sourroundings without any problems. We would reccomend it to everyone that is planning to visit Marrakech!

We had a marvellous stay at the riad. Everyone working there were very nice and helpful. We were picked up at the airport by a smiling Youssef, who helped us throughout the stay. The riad was situated a bit out of the way, but with Youssef's guidance we became well aquainted with the medina from the start. We felt safe both during the day and in the evening in the narrow street of the medina, thanks to Youssef. We had a nice room and enjoyed the shared facilities of the riad as well.

Honey pancakes, freshly pressed orange juice and delectable coffee are always a good start. Follow that with the most warm and friendly owner Caryl and helper Yusuf and you cannot go wrong. Ryad Noura has 4 guest rooms and even when full, it is hard to tell. All rooms are beautifully furnished in traditional Moroccan style, with European essentials blended in. All rooms have an air conditioner / heater when required and there is plenty of space to sit around the Ryad and on the secluded roof terrace. Marrakech is a true experience, even after travelling in many parts of North Africa. The Ryad was a haven of tranquillity and Yusuf and Caryl never failed to make us welcome on our return, whatever the time. We were truly sad to leave this wonderful Ryad and will surely return many times.

Thanks to our stay in Riad Noura our visit to and specially first impression of Marrakech was super! Extremely friendly Yussef welcomed us in the dark after a long travel day with Mint thea Moroccan cookies and he is so helpful and really nice! The Riad itself is very very nice, small, stylish, very good taste these people have. Nice breakfast on the roof, all the people working in the house were so friendly! I regretted to leave for a much less Kasbah afterwards. I strongly recommend this Riad! Thanks for the nice experience!!

I would recommend this Ryad for everyone going to Marrakech. You have to call the Manager on Duty when you arrived in town, then he will pick you up from the place you are. It's impossible to find it yourself, cause it's right in the Medina. But Youssef is an excellent host, he makes your stay a pleasure, he helps you with everything and shows you the way to the Jamna el Fnaa, the main Place of Marrakech. The Ryad is clean, the breakfast very good. An absolute highlight of the travel.

We are really happy that we stayed there. The owner and also Youssef were really helpful and friendly. Youssef picked us up at the train station eventhough we arrive very late at night. The next day he showed us around the souk and gave us direction on what to see in marrakesh. The service that they have provided for us is really excellent. They treat us really well. Youssef is 24hours there for us if we need help. He also gave us ideas to go out of town, to sawira, which we did go and it was a wonderful place. Over all it is a great place and if i go to Marrakech again i would definitely stay there again.

Guest House Ryad Noura is an oasis in hectic Marrakesh. We appreciated the the relaxing atmosphere in the lounge and the quietness in our room during night. Waking up we looked forward to enjoy our coffee and breakfast on the terrace. Above all we liked the nice and friendly service. Both "Karil" and Youssef helped us during our stay in a manner far beyond what one could expect. Thanks a lot. We, family of four, enjoyed our stay and give Ryad Noura our best recommendations.

Ryad Noura is a fantastic place to stay in marrakesh. Both the owner and Youssef were incredibly welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. The Room was beautiful and well maintained. The public areas were stunning and a great place to chill out from the madness of marrakesh! The Ryad was close to all sites and we were able to explore the city on foot but did take a taxi back of an evening as it was so easy to get lost in the souks. We had a trip to the mountains organised by the Ryad and had a lovely time. A great place to stay I really recommend it!

Semaine très agréable, accueil excellent... Les repas pris sur place sont d'une grande finesse et on se sent dans ce ryad comme chez soi! Le propriétaire du ryad est d'une extrême gentillesse et nos conversations le soir autour d'une bonne bouteille resteront longtemps gravées dans mes souvenirs (vive la Vendée!) Les chambres sont entretenues avec soin par une fée du logis, discrète et excellente cuisinière! Enfin, ce séjour ne serait rien sans Youssef, ami des petits et des grands, toujours au petit soin, toujours le sourire même quand on a réservé par internet 12heures avant d'arriver... (Youssef n'hésite pas à me donner des nouvelles de ton frère!) Bref, si vous voulez découvrir Marrakech et vivre au coeur de sa medina dans une ambiance familiale, cette adresse est à recommander!

My two friends and I had an absolutely wonderful stay during the first weekend of December. Youssef, who is in charge of managing the Ryad Noura, went above and beyond in making us feel just at home. Not only did he give us a warm welcome when picking us up at the train station, he provided free transportation from there on out, all around the city whenever we needed it. He also recommended great places to go and things to do, took us shopping at the Souks/artisans, and truly helped us make the most of our weekend there. Absolument formidable! Nous avons passé un très bon sejour à Ryad Noura, et Youssef nous a beaucoup aidé en assurant que nous serons amusés le plus. Il nous a dit toutes les choses à faire en ville pour profiter bien les temps, et il a assuré aussi le transport pour n'importe quoi. Le brunch dans le matin était délicieux et je recommanderais ce Ryad et leurs services pour tout le monde.... ils étaient très symptha et accommodants.
