We loved our stay at Riad Chez L'Africain! The riad is the most beautiful we saw in Morocco and the room is very comfortable. Luc was a lovely host and helped us out whenever we had questions. The riad is well-located, just down the street from the Saadian Tombs and very close to both palaces. Unlike many riads, it was also very easy to find. Luc provided clear directions on how to get to the riad and our arrival was very smooth. We would highly recommend this riad - and it's great value for money.

Luc's place is really beautiful, it's in a quiet location just down from the Saadian tombs. Walking in through the front door is like entering a portal to another world! We loved our stay in the calm, beautifully decorated and super clean riad.

We loved staying at Luc's place. Great location and the riad is beautiful. Ceilings in our bathroom were a tiny bit small, so if you're very tall it might not be ideal, but other than that we loved the place and would definitely return!

We really enjoyed our stay at Luc and Sara's place. The beautiful riad is located very close to Saadian tombs and other tourist attractions of Medina. Luc and Sara are fantastic hosts, they know exactly what you need as a tourist in Marrakech and are happy to book airport transfers, days trips and other activities for you. The delicious breakfast is a mixture of continental and Moroccan ingredients - very nice indeed. Thank you Luc and Sara. We had a great time in Marrakech!
