After spending a fantastic week travelling around we arrived at dar Balthazar on our last night. We were greeted by a young boy who had been left in charge and couldn't really help us with anything let alone make us feel welcome. ( we don't blame him, it was a difficult situation for all). The rooms were very smelly and... More

It's a great place to stay, their rooms are spacious, clean and nicely decorated. The only problem is the staff who was asking me to pay for the room the moment I put my luggage on the floor and then a few more times after they realised it's not a priority for me. A few hours after I paid they... More

Quite riad, adequate space, lovely staff. We had a meal there one night which was cooked by Mona the manager and was delicious. Home cooked and tasty. You just have to let her know what you want from the menu the day before and she buys everything fresh. The local area market was the best we found. Great atmosphere, fruit... More

This is a nice little riad in Marrakesh Medina. A little tricky to find at first but it a gem.We got the suite for two nights and it was huge considering its a riad which normally have compact rooms.Love the interior which was tastefully done.Would definitely come back!

It is a really nice hotel in the centre of the Medina and quite close to el Fna . It is a bit hard to find at first, but once you get there the first time, you realize it is quite simple. The receptionists are very nice and help you have a pleasant stay. The owner, however, wasn't too nice... More

gorgeous little Riad This is a gorgeous little Riad just a few minutes walk from the hustle and bustle of the souks and main square. It is beautifully decorated and with only a handful of rooms it was always peaceful and there was always space to relax on the roof terrace very nice for the breakfast earlier or in outside... More

We stayed one night in Dar Balthazar before leaving Morocco after 10 days there and already knowing country and prices a bit. Stay in this Riad (for one night) was ~20 euro more expensive, than we planned and than was placed in our online booking sheet. Hotel added some misterios "taxes" (some of them was deleted, then they failed to... More

I can't recommend this Rhiad enough - they meet you from the airport (you need that in Marrakesh its like a maze if you don't know it!), welcome you with delicious mint tea in an oasis away from the bustle of the street. Amazing breakfast, awesome help and advice for tourists and beautiful, luxurious rooms.
