Everything about Riad Shama was excellent, from the courteous and friendly staff, clean and calming environment, central location and comfortable homey feel. Special mention to Aymid who went above and beyond in helping us with bags, advice on restaurants for dinner, serving breakfast and arranging our airport transfer. If you’re ever in Marrakech we’d recommend staying at the Shama. It even has a spa and lovely courtyard swimming pool. And the roof area is a spectacle in itself.
Some of the fittings in the bathroom looked a bit outdated and worn out. Shower head in one of the bathrooms was broken. Tap in our bathroom was moving. A bit more attention to details like these and I’m sure Shama will be much, much better.
Located within 2 Km of main square, quieter area in old town. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was great. We also had dinner on two nights - delicious! It was easy to arrange this each morning. Roof terrace would be a great place to relax - it was too cold when we visited.
Be wary of boys hanging around trying to give directions - mostly its to get you lost and demand money so ignore them. The walk to the main square can be challenging (though markets) however stick to your map and ignore unhelpful bias/men trying to 'help' you only to get money from you. This isn't related to the Riad - just a suggestion. one night other guests in next room where noisy and up late however that cannot be helped - other nights we slept well.
The central location, cleanliness and friendliness of staff, especially Aymad. In house dining was excellent with a delicious chicken tagine quickly prepared for my wife. We like the fact that everyone of the 10 rooms is a woman’s name. We also liked that the Riad has a spa.
WiFi wasn’t great in the rooms. This could be improved.
room was lovely, staff were very pleasant.
Raid was absolutely lovely. if i was to visit again I might book the other side of the madina.
