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.

...this is not necessarily a positive or a negative. To start with we had 2 holidays in the sense that we did 50% luxury and 50% on a more strict budget. This riad falls into the latter. The riad is fantastically located 5mins walk from the main square. The staff are pleasant and the room is relatively spacious. I think... More

This riad is in a good location, a few minutes walk from the souks in the medina and around a 15 minute walk to the main square of Jemaa el Fna. The riad is prettily decorated with a lovely central courtyard and clean, comfortable rooms. Staff are friendly and helpful.

A very pleasant Riad. Although very central being about 5mins from the main square, it was very nice and quiet. A great little escape in the bustle of Marrakech! The Riad was kept nice and clean, a very pleasant and spacious room, and the staff always helpful. the only problem was that the WiFi was a little difficult to pick... More

Easy to find equipped with a map, just a right and a right from the taxi stop, though we walked from the railway station with no trouble. Highly recommended, and a very good... More
