    Absolutely wonderful place to stay in the Medina of Marrakech. Michele our host offers the best service to his guests and can arrange for you wonderful day trips and activities. Special mention to his unsurpassed food and beverage service. You will enjoy your stay at Riad al Kadar like no other place you have ever been. Thank you Michele!!!

    Stayed 5 nights in Nov 2018

    5/5 Excellent

    A calm and beautiful oasis of hospitality.

    Marrakech hustles and bustles. There is no shortage of people seeking to take advantage of a tourist. All that ceases at the door to beautiful Riad Al Kadar. You enter and are transported. Within you find a perfect fusion of old time Moroccan style with modern European amenities. Tile and stone work are beautiful. There are roses and citrus in abundance. Rooms surround the courtyard each one spacious, well appointed with excellent bathroom and shower. Breakfasts are feasts that change a bit each day. The wonder of the Riad is your host, Michele (mee-KEH-leh) an Italian gentleman with an unsurpassed gift for hospitality. He does not know the word "no." He will fulfill your every wish. Meals, transportation, advice, but also far beyond the standard. He found us a color printed banner for a presentation and a paper shredder (don't ask). We ate in various fun Marrakech restaurants. Our best meals were prepared by Michele himself. "We don't have time to go get lunch, Michele," "don't worry" 20 minutes later we're eating a beautiful Italian pasta with bread, wine, cheese in honey, salad, snacks, the works. In Marrakech don't do anything without first asking the price. With Michele, abandon all caution and place yourself in his hands. Ask for anything, let him deliver and depend that the bill for the extras will be beyond fair and reasonable. We travel extensively and have never been treated to a higher, better yet totally affordable oasis of hospitality..

    Pros: Beautiful common areas, immaculate, delicious food, comfortable rooms, great staff. Worth coming to Marrakech just to be pampered by Michele.

    Cons: Wouldn't change the experience.

    Location: Inexpensive taxis are nearby and open the whole city to you. Shopping is fun if you know how to bargain. The main square at night is a sight to see.

    4/5 Good

    Good atmosphere, long distance

    It was our first time in Marrakech with my brother. I choose this Riad because of comments on Expedia. Good decoration related to Morocco culture with italian touch (his owner is italian). Great welcome with mint tea served by a berber women. As per expedia advise us that Riad had some problems with water, they solved, and put us in three different rooms each day, this let us to know different rooms. The room in firs floor has the problem that during morning other guests stayed at the living room in front of the bedrooom talking, if you want to sleep more, that would be unconfortable. Michelle (owner) was kind, however, he could be more customer service oriented to give recommendations to first time guesses, about right prices for taxis (for example he helped us to take a taxi that charge us 50 dhr (5 euros) to go to the Medina (that was around 10 minutes walking, but in the night it's hard to find a taxi. After we find that in the villa a taxi charge 15 dhr. Other thing was that he offered us to have dinner, and we paid the more expensive dinner that we had paid in Marrakech, 20 dhr (20Euros) by person, it was beef balls with sausage, tomatoe and olives salade, orange caramelized dessert. In general we ate for 6dhr each one. My mistake was not asked him before, but I would expected to pay at most 10dhr for the dinner. Lesson learned. When you travel thinking in stay in a Riad better choose to eat on the street restaurants close to the Medina. I felt deceived

    Pros: Decoration style, Morocco objects, cleanless.

    Cons: Be more service oriented with guesses, more informative specially with ones staying by first time in Marrakech.

    Location: 10 minutes walking to the Medina, where you can find anything you need, food, places to visit, souvenirs, merchandase, cultural life, lots of people

    Everything with Excellence

    When you arrive, you feel you just arrived at a friends place, Michelle made us feel very welcome and does everything with excellence. We have never seen such a clean hotel. Michelle also walked us to the main square in Marrakech so we wouldn't get lost, which was really helpful. Thank you again for having us :)

    5/5 Excellent

    Riad Al kadar

    Beautiful interior, the renovation is faultless, with attention to period detail which gives the feeling of stepping back in time. Michele obviously loves his home and is a charming host. The breakfasts were delicious and varied, the cook (and her daughter) both very skilled and accommodating. The only problems were that, in March, it was a little chilly in the room at night, plus there is a mosque just across the street which has the most unmusical muezzin we have ever heard - and amplified! Woken up at 5 and again around 7, every morning. The location is in a pretty dumpy neighbourhood, full of mechanics' shops and dust roads. Also it is ONLY JUST inside the Medina and it's a good 45 mins walk to the Jamaa el Fna, not 15 as someone claimed. As a lot of road building was going on it's not a pretty or easy walk, either. We enjoyed our stay there but would find a place nearer the centre if we went back to Marrakech.

    Pros: See above.

    Cons: On a bus route would be handy. Couple of chairs in the room and a heater.

    Location: Nothing to do and you can't 'pop back to the hotel' for a cuppa or to collect something.
