Beautiful riad, with great charasmatic and clean rooms. The two ladies running it were very helpful. We had a great stay. We booked the 2 day tour to the saharah through the hotel. It was ok, but don't do it if you hate a lot of driving in one day. It took about 10 hours to get there!

Very nice place, gives you the authentic Moroccan feel. Easy going and laid back.. friendly people. Breakfast at whatever time you like and organized us dessert tours. Aircon was nice sleeping in cool room. Would recommend to anyone going to Marrakech.

I chose this place based on previous reviews and price and did not have great expectations. How wrong was I. The riad is lovely, small, charming but best of all, it was very quiet. What made our stay so special were the staff.We booked the hotels transfer from the airport and after landing in djemma el fnaa square, we were... More

I had a really great stay at Riad Basma. Run by Hasna and her sister, there is nothing they won't do to accommodate you. Organised, professional and efficient. They sorted my airport transfer and an early breakfast for me and for another couple even though it was before normal breakfast hours. It was also amazing! The food just kept coming!... More

I really loved it here. The staff were extremely friendly. Location was great right in the souks and near the main medina, but so quiet and peaceful. Rooms were gorgeous and the breakfasts were great. Wifi was fantastic. I've noticed a few people have mentioned the drain smell, I've been to Morocco before and its extremely hard to avoid this...

Everything was alright. One little exception: german users, when reviewing the "final page" directly prior booking, the statements about the taxes are incorrect. As stated in the description of the Riad, those are not included in the price and have to be paid on arrival, contradictory to what you read on that summary page before booking. We can highly recommend... More

I enjoyed my stay here. Airport pick up and meeting us in Place Djeema El Fna was really appreciated. The only reason I've marked it down for cleanliness was that our room had an unpleasant damp smell which was noticeable in other parts of the Riad too. When we got to our next destination it had got into my clothes,... More

Highly recommend this Riad, Great value for money, clean and comfortable. Very friendly and helpful owners. Right in the middle of the Souk but quiet and peaceful. Lovely roof terrace to sunbathe and relax. There was a plastic bag stuffed down the shower plug hole when we arrived, which we thought was strange so removed it. However soon worked out... More

This riad was lovely and a great value for the price. The bathroom in our room had a funky smell but I am giving 5 stars because of the kindness of the staff. I was violently ill in the middle of the night and ran out of water and the guy went out at 4:30am to get me water. Nothing... More

My husband and I stayed here in December 2010 to celebrate my 40th Birthday. The location is superb, just a few minutes walk from the main square down a winding alley. Despite being so near the square the riad is quiet and tranquil, which is a relief after the hustle and bustle of the city. The staff were very friendly... More
