9 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
"What can I say...the location, the interior design and the services were great. Christophe and Andre as well as the staff did a wonderful job in making us feel welcome, always in a very good mood and interested in helping us out concerning restaurants/things to do and so on (despite our somewhat broken French). The breakfast was delicious and the rooms were cozy and clean. And the roof terrace right behind the Cafe de France...what a treat! We spent hours just on the terrace looking over the Jemma el Fna - a view that you can otherwise just get from the restaurants around the market place. After weeks of looking for a Riad in Marrakech we could never really decide on one because there was always something missing. Either we did not like the location or the way it looked or the price. But one day Riad Andalla popped up and we immediately knew that this was simply perfect. And that it was!"

"You can go there with your eyes closed ! As soon as you get in, AndrÃ© and Christophe make you feel like home ! The terrasse offers a stunning view of "Place Jema El Fna". The cook Raja is amazing, Abdu can tell you a lot of stories, he knows everything ! And Samira is always laughing, and it's infectious ! We've also been to the Hamman and got a massage by Amada and his wife Leila.... no words to describe, when it's finished, you only want one thing : Please continue..... Well, go there and you will come back again !!"

The best Riad in the Medina
"First, the owner, Chriqtophe offers you to book a taxi for you at the airport. Then he will welcome you at the entrance of the medina as the taxi are not allowed to get in. He will personnaly accompany you until the Riad which is ideally located, very close to the place Djema El Fna with an extraordinary view from the terasse on the roof, on the place and on the Atlas montains. The Riad is new, very well decorated, very charming and you are considered more as a friend than a customer. The service is perfect, the staff adorable, the rooms very charming and comfortable with the air conditioning. the breakfirst on the romantic terasse overhanging all the median is one of the best moment I had."

Pleasant riad with 2 charming hosts
"We spent 5 days at Riad Andalla and surely enjoyed our stay. The Riad is quiet, nice and clean with a very nice atmosphere created by Christophe and Andre, who gives you just the right amount of attention (not too little - not too much). The location is perfect - very close to Jema el Fna, but on the other hand you still have the quietness inside the riad. We had a very delicious meal prepared by the very good chef - Maroccan cuisine. You won't regret a stay at riad Andalla."

I came expecting nothing and left getting it all
"I've been to many places that I've liked in my life but never felt the need of writing a positive review of it, and now here I am. This riad is amazing for many reasons: 1- it is located in THE place to be in the Medina, especially if it's your first time to Marrakech (but it's no wonder that people keep coming back to it). 2- the rooms are comfortable and decorated with great local style (like the rest of the house)... and the Riad has a beautiful terrace. 3- Last but not least, the staff really take it seriously when it comes to making you feel at home. Christophe et AndrÃ© have the declared policy that their Riad is a guest house, therefore you are a guest and not just a customer (as a matter of fact they live there). Do not hesitate, just go there and see it with your own eyes."

A home far from home
"This riad is definitely a hidden treasure inside Marrakech's medina ; the two hosts Andre and Christophe are so friendly you instantly feel at home, and the quality of both the rooms and the dinner (Raja is an amazing cook!) have nothing to envy to the best hotels in town... Christophe and Andre know so many tips (what to visit, where to eat, even where to shave !) that made our stay unique and unforgettable. I strongly recommend this riad to whoever wants to live a wonderful marrakchi experience !"

"This rias is situated on a very central location. In the city, imagine you're on the roof terrace in an oasis, with the sound of the city at the background. The owners provide a warm welcome and the staff is super friendly and hospitable. We recommend this lovely riad!"

Good friends, great riad!
"We have spent six nights at Riad Andalla on our 3rd trip to Marrakech and this so far was the best experience for two guys with a BIG interest in photography: the riad is located very close to the Jemaa elFna, which means you can see the square from the terrace, and you can also see the Atlas Mountains on the other side! Perfect! The rooms are clean, traditional and very cozy (althoug a bit small, like in all riads) and the staff quite nice and helpful. The two guys running the place, Cristophe and Andre are friendly and optimistic, always taking care of us and helping me with my French (spoken, not written unfortunately!). Andre even stayed up until 3 in the morning to wait for us at the riad after our bus back from Zagora changed schedule, welcoming us with our room, thank you again! All in all, out of the four riads I've been to in the last two and a half years, Andalla was the best and really gives me no reason to search for different accomodations next time around."
