Really nice riad and close to the principal square. The employees are very kind and helpful for anything you need: we were interested in cooking a tanjia whilst we were there and they were very helpful in what to do. Nice rooftop on the roof.

It was in a great location with a beautiful roof terrace. A refuge from the hustle of the surrounding area. Helpful people running the place.

Fantastic service in a great location, this riad gives you an authentic encounter of Marrakech as nicely as the Medinah. The rooms and bathrooms had all you might expect but the real gem of this property is the large roof terrace. Higher than most around it it gives a fantastic view of the city day and night. Abdul looked right after us and often went beyond what we asked of him, helping us getting out and about, and he also makes great mint tea! Thoroughly recommend this hostel and definitely intend to return!

The Riad is totally amazing! The employees is really friendly, the rooms are so nice and of course, the terrace. the breakfast was the really best in whole morocco, and also the cheapest. Extremely superb value for the money!

We really enjoyed our stay at Riad Bounaga, and would definitely stay again! The building was full of character, really comfy and quiet. It was a calm and quiet oasis within the hustle and bustle which is Marrakesh. The breakfasts were delicious, filling and something to look forward to. We recommend the house made jams and amlou! The Riad was easy to uncover by following the directions given to us and following finding it once, was easy to get back to. The Souks are nearby and most the points of interest of Marrakesh are within walking distance. But what made this location so special was our hosts who were fantastic, warm and friendly and often there to give advice or to simply enjoy a gin and tonic with on the sunny terrace and chat away!

A beautiful riad, full of character and only a brief walk from the main square, Jamaa el Fna. We booked for a day and stayed for a full week, thanks largely to the very useful and warm and friendly Abdulmola, who was an absolute star. If you&'re looking for a quiet, welcoming and priced reasonably gettaway that&'s right in the thick of the Medina, then you&'ve found the right place. Can&'t wait to visit again!

Riad Bounaga is a lovely sanctuary in lively Marrakech with warm and friendly staff, clean noiseless and cozy rooms, perfect location, and a appealing terrace. Having rooftop breakfasts at this riad (which included fruit, yoghurt, pancakes, bread, homemade jams and freshly squeezed orange juice) was one of the many highlights of our week in Morocco. Make sure you talk to the staff about local rates for items prior to shopping inside the souks, they can give you a very good beginning point for all the haggling you will be doing. Ideal stay, thank you Riad Bounaga.

Nice hidden riad situated near the souqs. The roof rooftop was a massive plus. Warm and friendly and helpful staff. Abundant local breakfast. Sanitary was alright. The riad was a a lot more than rewarding pit stop when coming from the busy and sometimes exacting streets of Marrakech.

  Customer Review 

Riad Bounaga is inside the old part of Marrakech so has lots of character but has seen greater days. This added to its charm in my opinion and is refelected inside the value of the price to stay here. Very near to the souks but without help would have been nigh on impossible to find! Our host Abdulmullah was helpful, warm and friendly and nothing was too much for him. Our arrival was a little hairy - if only we&'d read the blurb about the cab not getting us close enough! We arrived late as well as the streets near to the Riad were, indeed, heaving with people and carts exactly where we got stuck and were then told to walk the rest of the way - having no idea how near or far to it we were. A little stressful to say the least - but this could have been avoided IF ONLY WE HAD READ THE NOTES! ! We were the only poeple staying there for 2 of the three nights so it was like we had our own private guest house, just far enough from the madding crowd to really feel at peace. Perfect. We arranged our cab from the airport via the riad and this cost us 150 dirham (we were travelling as a group of 4). The &"small&" brown taxi&'s cost 70 dirham per TAXI from airport to center but are only allowed to carry 3 people. The cost and carriage is now LAW so you shouldn&'t get ripped off. If you get a people carrier cab (also called 4x4&'s! then the cost is MUCH higher - expect 50 dirhams per person). A plentiful reakfast included the local fare of: a selection of breads and pancakes, (incl delicious red onion ones); soft cheese, jams, orange juice, mint tea, fresh coffee and yoghurt. We had eggs (upon request) on the last day which we asked Abdulmullah to go out and buy for us. Our host was so helpful at telling us what sort of prices we should reasonably expect to for items like a tagine pot and so on which made bartering much less of a problem. I would not hesitate to suggest this hostel or Abdulmullah our host and can&'t wait to return. A great 1st experience of Morocco.
