Stayed here for five nights with my daughter and we were so well cared and catered for by Habib who sourced gluten free Moroccan breakfast specialities for us. Zinah looked after us during breakfast and made us the most amazing meal for dinner, beautifully home cooked. We were grateful for Habib's help with organising an excursion to the Atlas mountains, with a kind driver and an amazing climb with a Berber guide.We were close to the Medina for shopping and meals and raw sugar cane juice! The Riad Roof terrace was an oasis of calm and sunshine at the end of each afternoon. We had a luxurious, clean and comfortable suite room. Truly spoilt, highly recommended!
Habib was incredibly helpful and informative about the city. He arranged for us to be met by our taxi, and walked us into the main square to allow us to get our bearings. On arrival he also went through a map of the city and highlighted places that would be best to see given the time we had available. He also went above and beyond helping us arrange our bus tickets to Essaouira.Habib ensured us the route to the central square was safe as the street is always busy. We often felt unsafe when walking back in the evenings and it became something we dreaded at the end of the day - but possibly this is a reflection of us not adapting quickly enough to the Marrakesh lifestyle!
We were not an easy group to accommodate as there were 10 of us and the group consisted of all ages from 9 months to 80 plus! We booked out the entire Riad. We could not have chosen a better place to stay as Habib, Hafida and her sister made our stay very relaxed, comfortable and welcoming. they were especially helpful with the baby and the grandma's. Habib took care of all our trips and excursions and no request was too big for him. the ladies in the kitchen cooked the most beautiful food and our rooms were always clean and tidy. They made a point of cooking different food each day. The rooms were all spacious and comfortable and the roof terrace made it even more special. We loved the fact there was the communal courtyard for us to relax and meet in as well as having our own space. It was my mother in laws 60th birthday the day we arrived and Habib even managed to find the most amazing chocolate birthday cake which wouldn't have looked out of place in some of the best restaurants in the world!The Riad itself is in an ideal location in the old Medina area. It was a 10-15 min walk to the main square through old streets and souks which just added to the Moroccan experience. There is plenty to do in Marrakesh and Habib was full of knowledge about what to do, how to do it and costs etc.I would recommend this Riad to anybody looking for an authentic yet comfortable place to stay especially if in a big group!We have already told our friends and families to visit Riad Davia and we hope to visit again in the future!Thank you to everyone at Riad Davia for creating a memorable holiday for us, big thanks from Kay and the family!
The manager, Habib was amazing, he was very helpful and accommodating. On our arrival, he took us on a small walk to help us get our bearings and gave us a really detailed map which he explained. The wifi at the property sometimes didn't work however this wasn't an issue for us. Habib helped us arrange our excursions and didn't charge ridiculous commission, which many of the large hotels do. I would more than recommend Riad Davia, it's a beautiful Riad in a great location, and provides an excellent service.
We booked last minute as we didn't know exactly when we would visit Marrakesh. I was traveling with 2 friends and 3 teenagers . We were met by the grounds keeper in the Medina who trolleyed our luggages to the Riad . My kids were amazed of how local we were. We got to a beautiful black Moroccan door only to be met by Hafida and family. The 3 ladies who took care of us for our entire visit . Cooking and cleaning and helping us with our Arabic/French . They were like family.The Riad was fully equipped , has 5 unique bedroomsA cute little plunge pool , outdoor lounging space as well as a roof top for sun bathing and if you can tolerate the heat a dining area . No problems with hot water or anything .Habib the manager was there every day to make sure any excursions were taken care of or if we needed anything . It was a Royal experience . We travel a lot and hardly repeat places , but my kids have asked to make this a yearly tradition . It was fantastic. Oh and there is also a small spa on site need to make arrangements in advance . Things to note : You are in the middle of the Medina/ souk Walkable to most attractions. You may or may not get a key - someone always here to greet you If you don't book the entire Riad , empty rooms may be rented .
Modern riad located inside the medina, rooms are clean, service is excellent and breakfast is good an included. Super price worth it! Bathroom is spacious, with a nice bath tope and a robe. The guy in charge is super nice and helpful, speaks perfect English.
The hotel takes good care of you: on the first night we were shadowed to the central square, to make sure we could find our own way to the square and back and when we had an early day trip to Ait Ben Haddou, we got an extra early breakfast (even though the markets weren't open yet).The room was nicely decorated (especially the bed) and it's very quiet (you only hear the calls to prayer, but not the rest of the city). The only thing is that it could use a little maintenance, like almost everything in Morocco.The hotel is located a little to the east of the medina. That gives you the chance to see a bit more of local life in Marrakech. It felt very safe. We walked everything, also at night and it was fine!We slept in room Malak, that was a pretty room, but the shower could use a curtain (everything got whet when we showered). I also saw the Mouloukya room, but that has the bathroom underneath the bed, I think it's not very suitable when you're tall.
This is a very nice riad, tucked away in an authentic area of town. We were luckily upgraded to a bigger room which was lovely and a treat. A few things in the bathroom weren't working properly and are in need of repair. It is a gorgeous place but could use some love. As with most places in Morocco, the mattresses are hard and could use a mattress topper. It is a bit of a trek into the souk and is out of the way but gives you great insight into the real city and how the locals live which we appreciated as it wasn't touristy. Definitely get picked up and escorted in the first time as you will never find it. We did feel a little unnerved coming back late at night by ourselves, but it was fine. Both breakfast and the dinner we had in were fantastic. Dinner in is a good idea due to the location. It was quite cool when we were there but I would imagine when it was warmer it would be lovely to lounge in the courtyard.
The riad experience was absolutely amazing, Habib and the other people working there were both friendly and accommodating. Habib even walked us to the centre on the first day to ensure we would not get lost and he arranged excursions for us (I would definitely recommend the Atlas Mountain excursion)!The riad itself was beautiful, it had spacious rooms, comfortable beds, a refreshing plunge pool and we certainly felt safe there. Finally, the delicious food deserves a mention The breakfast which was included was varying and tasty. Habib and I discussed via email and we agreed that he would serve a vegetarian tajine on the first night, with this we also surprisingly got a starter and some fruit and of course, mint tea! All for no extra charge. Our group eat out regularly but we all agreed that the food at the riad was nicer than any of the restaurants we tried. I would wholeheartedly recommend this riad!
My stay here was something of an wonderful experience. Such a beautiful traditional raid in the heart of marrakech. you are surrounded with luxury peace and quiet from the moment you enter the raid. I went with my friend here and it has to be one of the best places I have stayed at. Habib the manager of the raid made us feel so welcoming and looked after us so well. Service was of a 5* and he spoke fluent English which was of a great help. He went out of his way to make our stay pleasant. The raid is clean and the staff are friendly too, will definitely be revisiting again!
Me and 3 friends (all male) stayed here for 3 nights and I have to say it was amazing. Being in the heart of Madina we got to really experience the local environment and the real Marrkech. The Riad itself is very well laid out and is very spacious with each bedroom having its unique feature and theme. The cleaning team was great and it felt good coming home to a clean place after a hectic night out. The cook was also very friendly and produced some very tasty food. But the standout feature/person of our whole experience has to be Habib- the manager of the Riad. He made our trip that extra special from being very knowledgeable about the area and activities to being helpful and very caring and understanding. He was a brilliant guide to have there and I can honestly say that he became a good friend due to his kind nature. We will be visiting the city again in the coming months and there is no doubt in our minds where we will staying.
What a wonderful time I spent in Riad Davia. Our host, Habib was fantastic and made us feel right at home. Tucked away in the busy Marrakechi medina, it is an oasis of calm and relaxation. The food is to die for and the decor is warm and inviting. It was an absolute pleasure staying here and I would recommend it to anyone wishing to visit Marrakech.Habib, thank you so much for our stay and your hospitality- You are awesome!!
I had the pleasure to stay at this little corner of paradise in the middle of the medina in Marrakesh...From the time you entered the riad, you are surrounded with luxury peace and quiet..Habib the owner is a fantastic host with boundless energy and knowledge.I was there for my birthday a gift from my daughter and husband , he had a tagine made for us and a great bottle of wine. The room was big and cozy, the bathroom was absolutely amazing. This was the best place I stayed in Morocco.Thank you Habib for the excellent birthday , the excellent service and excellent food.....We will be back,

Habib was a very welcoming host and made me feel at home :). This Riad is an amazing place, comfortable and beautifully decorated. My experience was so exciting. Lots of great shops and restaurants nearby. Definitely recommended it to anyone !!
After an intensive surftrip we spent our last night in Marrakesch at this relaxing place.Habib was a perfect host. He picked us up in the centre of Marrakesch and guided us to the hotel. He organised the washing of the rental car overnight so we could spend a relaxing evening at the market of Marrakesch which is only a 10min walk from the hotel. The hotel is quiet, very clean and impresses by its super chill atmosphere.The food which you can order at the hotel is delicious!We would go there any time again. Thanks Habib for your hospitality.
Habib was very helpful and made sure we had a great stay. He went above and beyond. The room was fab and had a cute balcony overlooking to courtyard. I would recommend arranging a taxi from the airport with the riad as well as it can be difficult to find the place for the first time. Really enjoyed our stay at the riad.
It was wonderful to stay at Riad Davia - it was a small oasis from the chaos of Marrakesh. We stayed initially for a few days before traveling to other cities in Morocco, and then we came back to spend the last few days of our vacation there. The riad is small, only 5 rooms, and it immediately feels very much like home. It is elegant in decor and it was perfectly clean. Habib, the manager, is so helpful. We could not accept his offer of driving us to the bus station and later to the airport (I have a back problem preventing me from driving in a car) so instead he took our luggage and met us there. He did us lots of these favors without expecting to get paid extra. And we had some very interesting and insightful talks about Morocco with him in the courtyard. If I go back to Marrakesh in the future, I will without a doubt stay there again.
This riad was very elegant in decor and charming. It was nice to come back from the chaos of Marrakech to a place of calmness and comfort. The breakfast was different both days and was definitely something to look forward to. Habib did a great job in managing to arrange a wonderful day out for the family. The staff provided excellent service! The location of the riad may seem hard to find at first but Habib the manager was very helpful that the location was not a problem. In fact it was better to stay in this part of the area because it felt more peaceful.
My boyfriend surprised me with a visit to Marrakech for my birthday. Usually I would choose our accommodation as I can be quite fussy about where I stay, so there was some pressure on him to choose somewhere I'd like, but Riad Davia didn't disappoint! Yes it's a little walk from the main square but we loved walking through the narrow streets with all their wonderful sights, noise and smells - and we liked not being in the most touristy area. The manager Habib was so helpful, making recommendations, booking tables, organising taxis - even a much needed pedicure on arrival! He made our trip feel effortless. The room itself was beautifully decorated, and the quiet was lovely to come back to each night. My only, very small, recommendation would be to make the dining area a little more cosy to match the feel of the rooms. Otherwise, perfect!
Staff was incredibly nice. Habib is super helpful with everything and always available, the girls serve an incredible varied breakfast and are always lovely
Good breakfast, maybe to add more variety like some fruits, eggs, vegetables.
Very charming place. Room was very comfortable and relaxing. A place of great tranquility. Very well located for us since we wanted to get to know a more truthful Medina and not rest in the more touristic center area, but close enough by 15 minuts walking from the main square - in the second day it seemed we belonged to the efeverescent neighborhood, people are very friendly. Breakfast was very well served, really tasty presenting different Morrocan bakery delights. The staff was really kind and discreet! Habib gives all the good advices and support, every kind of information from him is precious! We decided to have one meal home cooked in the hotel (thank you Zineb) - the best meal cooked for us in all our stay!
We really liked the Riad. Delicious breakfast, spacious room, nice rooftop patio. However the greatest value is the owner. Very welcoming and helpful, gave us a lot of recommendations.
My daughter and I stayed. Habib, Zenab and Fatima were such a joy to meet and extremely courteous and helpful. Zenab is a fabulous chef and Habib handled every need. They made us feel like family and I couldn’t imagine staying anywhere else in Marrakech. This was our first time in Morocco and Habib ensured we knew everything we needed to.
Local beautiful and welcoming, helpful staff, excellent breakfast ..... advised!
The people and the service are there highlights. The place is beautiful. My room was big clean and Instagram worthy. Everything from the welcoming tea to the robes in the room was great. Habib helped us manage everything, and facilitated the pick up from the airport too. Highly recommend this place.
This is a lovely Riad where you will receive the Royal treatment. Habib is a true professional who goes out of his way to make sure that you have everything you need and is available at a moment's notice. It felt like staying with friends.
everything! amazing place, super helpful owner, and spot-less. if you want to have the real super flavour Morocan food have lunch/dinner at least once in the restaurant
The Riad is beautiful and the manager, Habib, is super friendly and helpful. He did everything to make us feel comfortable and gave us good directions and tips on what to do and see in the city. Also, because the riad is a little further from the main square (within easy ealking distance), it is very peaceful
The staff headed by Habib are absolutely top class, ate in two nights out of three. Food fantastic and nothing too much. Just surprised Habib couldn't stop the rain, he did everything else.
go here if u wanna escape the loudy noisy streets of marrakech. We like the room and the riad is an oasis of rest. Habib (owner) is very helpfull, he was there whenever we needed something
We had a lovely stay at Riad Davia, They were so welcoming and helpful, they organized a taxi to collect us from the airport and as we got arrived in late to Marrakech they cooked us a lovely meal. I would highly recommend this Riad!
The manager was incredibly helpful and made our stay seamless and relaxing - I would highly recommend this place!
Comfortable room in Marrakesh, 15 minute walk from Jemaa el-Fnaa, Quiet retreat from the chaos of the market and back streets outside.
the riad is veyr unique vey well decorated like a break in time ! and the staff is just so kind, real keepers!
We had the entire property to ourselves which was amazing! It was super clean and spacious. Habib and Zaineb were so lovely. Habib went over and above to help us organise excursions and taxis. He checked in with us every day and anything we needed he sorted for us.
Lovely Riad on the non tourist side on Marrakesh. Daily walk through the Medina allowed you to see the real side of Marrakesh before you stepped into the tourist centre. Experience the Morrocan Daily life in the Medina. Staff were fantastic! Nothing too much trouble, and provided assistance when we needed medical help. You feel part of the family when you move in.
The location of the Riad is close enough to get to the market center (Jamaal El fnaa) and close enough to exit the madina. The hotel was exceptional for the price and we were lucky enough to have the Riad to ourselves! All utilities worked. Breakfast was delicious and they were extremely accommodating to make us gluten free breakfast, laundry, room service. My kids loved the Ms Zainab the chef and the birds that visited the Riad daily. I need to mention brother Habib by name as he didn't make us feel like guest but more like family. He helped us above and beyond with finding our way around, ordering food, getting medicine but most importantly good conversations. If or when (God willing) if we aren't able to stay at Riad Davia we will make time to sit with Habib. He's a keeper!
