About Riad Dubai

Hidden among the warren of streets to the south of the El Badii Palace, Riad Dubai is a small property offering traditional Moroccan hospitality and décor in a surprisingly tranquil atmosphere.

The rooms are a rich and vibrant celebration of Moroccan design, with bold colours and antique furniture throughout. Each features en-suite bathroom, TV with satellite channels and Wi-Fi.

Like many riad’s, Riad Dubai has a peaceful courtyard, and surrounding roof terrace, both of which are ideal places to sit back and enjoy peace and tranquillity in the bustling city.

Riad Dubai is a small establishment, and meals tend to be more casual. All three are available, with the kitchen specialising in Moroccan cuisine. Weather permitting, meals are often taken on the one of the outside terraces.

The El Baddi Palace is 0.8 miles walk from Riad Dubai, while the city’s renowned Jamaa El Fna Square is 1.7 miles to the north.

Positive Reviews

Lovely and tranquil roof terrace

The riad's roof terrace seemed to be most guests' favourite part of the building. Many said they felt that it was both the perfect place to relax, and also that it had a very authentic feel. They clearly felt very much like they were in Marrakech, rather than in some anonymous place.

Decent authentic Moroccan cuisine

While guests did not say that it was the best food they ever had, there were very few complaints indeed. In fact, many complimented the food, saying that it was both tasty and a true example of traditional Moroccan cooking.

Excellent hands-on owner

Again and again the owner, Mohammed, came in for praise. Guests mentioned that he seemed to be the perfect innkeeper, and was very welcoming and solicitous. Guests seemed to have every confidence that if they brought something up with him it would be properly dealt with.

Negative Reviews

Very noisy environment

A couple of guests mentioned that there seemed to be a bit of internal noise that disturbed them at night, both from adjacent rooms and the public areas of the riad.

Rooms a bit dark

A few guests reported that they found their rooms a bit dark. The riad uses darker colours in its décor. Together with low watt bulbs it seems the rooms may seem a bit too dark for some.

Taxis cannot come to the entrance

Though not often mentioned, it was reported that taxis cannot make it all the way to the entrance doors. Because of the narrow warren of streets they must drop guests off a couple of minutes walk from the front doors.
