Riad Laly Review- Marrakesh Morocco

Riad Laly Review

Staying in a riad allows you to have a traditional experience when you visit Morocco. I chose Riad Laly and it turned out to be a good experience! You will be given the option of having a tajine dinner on arrival for €15. Mine included a lemon and chicken tajine, a large Moroccan salad, and yoghurt with fruit for dessert. Murad (the host) picked me up from the taxi rank which was a 5-minute walk from the property. I was offered some traditional mint tea whilst checking in, and given a map with some advice about the city.

The Good

✈ Free traditional Moroccan breakfast. This was very nice and filling (pictured above)

✈ Central location. A 5-minute walk from Jemaa el-Fnaa (the main square). The souks and many restaurants are also within walking distance.

✈ Beautiful rooftop terrace with sofas and deckchairs to relax.

✈ My room had air conditioning which is especially important in Morocco. It’s hot!

✈ Murad (the manager) is friendly and speaks many languages.

The Bad

✈ No lift and the stairs are quite steep.

✈ No set days or hours for the reception desk.

✈ Located down some alleyways which means that cars/taxis cannot enter. I felt a bit scared walking back in the evenings as a solo female.

✈ There are generally many scammers loitering on the streets close to the property. This is due to the property being located in a tourist hotspot.

My overall verdict is a yes! It’s so convenient to stay somewhere that’s centrally located but still hidden away from all the night time noise. As I have said before, you also get a traditional experience. For that reason, I would absolutely stay here again if I ever return to Marrakesh in the future. Click here to read my Marrakesh guide.
