"Riad Aderbaz Marrakech"
This riad is ok but there are better out there. I booked it for two nights mainly because it had a plunge pool and a change of area in Marrakech. Not too far to walk to the main square. The breakfast wasnt very good, pancake and when I poured the tea they had put a lot of sugar in it, the next day I asked for tea with no sugar but it never came.However […] I did then make the most of my small glass of freshly squeezed orange juice.The riad sleeps 12 and if it is full and everyone comes down for breakfast at once then there is not enough room. On the whole day we spent there we decided to have a day on the sun terrace (only 3 sunbeds) and keep going down to plunge into the pool. This was not to be as they had drained the pool and it took all day to fill back up! To be fair I think they had a problem with it as technicians turned up, but in the August heat - we needed that pool! Hafida the lady that runs it with her brother Said is a lovely lady and can cook you a three course evening meal for 10 euros, we didn't have it but it smelt and looked good being prepared.The third bed that was put in our room to accomodate us was very narrow and quite hard too. The room was airconditioned for free thank goodness as it was hot, a refreshing break from the Morrocan heat.All in all it's not a bad place to stay but I think there are better riads.

I booked room number three and it was lovely! The hostess was very kind. Good breakfast and location. The riad was a little bit hard to find, but if you consider to book this place you should take the first alley on you're right when you've entered the gate.
"Really a riad"
10/25/13 margueritespot hoi an
Hafida was the perfect hostess and this was the perfect riad for 3 tired Aussies! With the pool in the courtyard, the rooftop lounge, washing machine and free sunshine for drying, we soon forgot how cold and wet we had been in Santiago. Hafida personally escorted us to a hamman after giving us tea and breakfast - nothing was too much trouble for her. She is currently going to night class to improve her English so that will soon be as good as her French and Arabic. This is a purpose built riad with the old building being gutted to provide all the mod cons inside a traditional house behind a huge door down a beautifully clean side street. The internet connection was the fastest and best since we left Aus - you go girl!

We got a terrible small room. We just fit in the room, ourself and the babybunk for our baby. When we had the door open you could not get in the room. Close the door and then you have room to go te the bad room. We didn't got clean towels every day....dirty room but also a really dirty swimming pool. To dangerous to swim in, couldn't even see through the water. Coffee tasted like bleach. Only the bread was nice and fresh. Staff not motivated. The bed had a plastic underlayer. It was sweaty and it cracked...like everyone who stayed there pies in there bed. This was our 6th riad in a row, but it was the worst we ever see in our live.
"simple, but a little gem"
08/31/13 trypppy Mirleft, Morocco
I stayed here for one night on a trip from Tiznit to Fez and arrived early evening pretty exhausted already in the then 35C of Marrakesh: good: * awesome big room, efficient air condition * extremely friendly and attentive staff * good breakfast * good location but very quiet street not so goods: * pool: they have one, but very small and without lounge-area around it - forget it: shower and then to the rooftop is a better alternative * as others have noted: you don't get much privacy in the communal areas - albeit nice, they are small * the place was hard to find (but aren't gems always?) - seriously: if you don't speak/read Arabic, just keep asking everybody "Riad Aderbaz" until somebody shows you the way... the map on their site is not very helpful
"friendly people around but it needs improvements"

We stayed for 3 nights in this hotel. Our staying was nice and we appreciated many different things. Firstly, we did the check in at about 11 pm and when we arrived the owner assisted us to find the riad. The hotel is nearby the royal palace and the gendarmerie is very close, either. The area is very tranquil. The hotel is nice and simple. The room was good and comfortable. We had the air-conditioning which kept the room warm and we had heavy coverts the bed. I must complain a bit about the bathroom, instead. In fact, although the shower was very warm, there was not soap and we had to ask for it. Afterwards, they only offered 2 thin soaps for the whole permanence, 3 nights.The bathroom was smelling very bad, i suppose it was the sewer. They left our window open in the toilet but the smell was quite strong and we had to close the door any time. Also, there were little fly. The breakfast in the morning was in a nice area, very comfortable and we appreciated the owners getting up very early, preparing delicious food for the guests.there was cherry and fig jam, hot milk and coffee, mint tea and a glass of fresh orange juice. there was also some baguette. We did not like the arrangement of the breakfast tables. We had to sit and talk with other guests of the riad while doing our breakfast very early in the morning and this was uncomfortable. In fact, it was impossible to sit on your own, you must sit all together and if you do not talk it sounds a bit embarassing and rude. However, the hotel can book excursions and this is very good, and also they accept euros. They also changed the euros in dh when we need. The owners are very kind and helpful. Unfortunately the man does not speak english but just french, while his wife does.she is also very nice and she offered us some mint tea as a special treat. Neverhless, we were a bit disappointed when we left the hotel the last night because nobody was awake in the morning saying hello and we had nor a coffee nor our breakfast even tough we paid for it. It was the first of January, maybe the owners went to bed very late but we tought that if with guests you should be awake when they go and 7 am was not that early! You must book your dinner the day before otherwise you cannot eat in the hotel. So, please, remember of doing that if you want to relax and have dinner inside the riad. This would be better and recommended because in marrakech there are not many restaurants for tourists. Alternatively, you can eat in the main square for a few money. The hotel is also very close to the main square, a fair walking distance and very close to the bus station and the bus for the airport is number 19. they run since 6.15 am and every 30 minutes. It was very easy to get the bus in the early morning on the first of january. the roads were not busy and not dangerous at all. The services were still working. The bus station is in front of djemaa el-fna. If you prefer a taxi, the hotel can reserve one any time. I would recommend the riad to every one who wants to come and relax in marrakech for a long journey.
"Triple AAA - Airconditioning, Affable, and Afordable"
11/04/12 NextPlanetTravel San Francisco, California
If you visit Marrakech you need airconditioning. Make that a must-have on your riad criteria list. Although Riad Aderbaz is small, it has airconditioning, well appointed rooms and a quaint dining room where we were served breakfasts of fresh bread, jams, and tea. The "pool" in the entry serves more to moderate the daytime heat than for swimming but also adds to the ambiance. Hafida and Said could not have been more affable. Hafida walked us to a local restaurant that was questionable on the outside but as most places in Morocco, stunning on the inside. The food was delicious and of course they had belly dancers to entertain their guests. Said drove his motorcycle to the nearest taxi port and had the driver come pick us up rather than walk the four blocks, which having done so we would have missed our train. Lastly, the cost is so affordable maybe because it is not in the center of the Medina, which I learned to appreciate - there was too much commotion for me and it is too easy to get trapped in the medina. It is located next to the Petit Palace where the king stays when he is in Marrakech and only a few blocks from the Place Djemaa el Fna. We took a bus from the airport, which worked well but make sure you have a map to get to Riad Aderbaz.
"A heavenly oasis"
07/12/12 clarren5 Singapore, Singapore
Tucked away from the dusty hot Marrakech streets sits this heavenly oasis. The owner Hafida, and all her staff, are most welcoming. The rooms are very comfortable and cool, with a very cool plunge pool, which is welcoming in the Moroccan heat. They organised a car from the airport which was lucky because we would have had a lot of trouble finding it. Having said that the location is superb, being very close to Jemaa El Fina. The staff also cooked a great dinner for us one evening. I would highly recommend this Riad. Another traveller who was staying here at the same time said he'd been to three other Riads but this one was in a class of it's own.
"My first trip to Africa"

After getting married in early October, we decided to spend our honeymoon in Marrakesh, and we loved it. The hotel was located in a place that at first seems strange, but everything was ok, the people, the place... We enjoyed the staff, the design of the hotel, the breakfast! Thank you very much!
"Tranquility in Marrakesh"

We booked our room at Riad Aderbaz only a few days in advance. Our room was nice and clean. The Riad is French owned and the staff were very helpful and welcoming. Riad Aderbaz was a calm and tranquil place. It is possible to order a delicious 3 course dinner for 10 Euro or 110 Dirham pr. person. It is a bit expensive but nice. This Riad are mostly booked for families and couples. No dorm are available.
"It's OK, but sure there are better ones"
05/16/11 GJB010 Rotterdam, The Netherlands
Instead of Sheherazade, which we booked, they brought us in the night to this Riad. Location is OK. It's in the centre, but a little away from all the (tourist)shops. Easy to reach by (rental)car or bus. A safe public garded parkarea nearby. If was our first hotel/riad in Maracoo and we found it great. Later on we learned there a better ones in the centre. We spend the night also in RiadetpalaisdePrincess (or something like this). Much better, same price. This is OK also. Room number 4 smelt bad in the douche/toilet. A small "swimmingpool" to cooldown, not to swimm.
