A great little place not too far from the city centre, near the local market. The rooms were clean, although a bit cold (but we were there in february, so I expected this) and staff was very friendly. Based on some of the reviews I was originally a bit worried as we were staying in the second building, not in... More

As it was so cheap we were not holding our expectations very high at all - but as soon as we arrived at the beautiful building, full of so much character and friendliness we were so happy we had chosen to stay here. we were in the building next door from the main block but it was just as beautiful!...

The Riad Massin is in a spectacular location, right on the outskirts of the Medina. The staff here was extremely friendly, and they were always willing to provide advice and offer any help to make our stay better. Unfortunately, our sheets were definitely not changed from the previous guests, and that is just unacceptable. While the shower pressure was great,... More

The place is clean, well decorated, very cheap, and filled with friendly and helpful staff (I had visited a year before and upon returning Brahim recognised me and ran over to give me a hug and treated me as a long lost friend). The showers seemed to have no problem with giving hot water. Both parts have areas for relaxing... More

This place is great! The staff is unbelievably nice. They even walked us to some places we needed to find and didn't ask for anything in return. The place is clean except for the bathroom a little bit but just wear sandals which is what you should do anyway in any hostel you stay at. Definitely recommend it. We also... More

Riad Massin went from being a two-day stopover destination to becoming my home base in Morocco. I ended up staying there a total of two weeks, on and off. The short version is: Great People, Great Location, Great Price, Beautifully clean place. The details below: 1. Location is brilliantly well connected (next to a main bus station & a food... More

I stayed here for a week in late August to early September. Pros: The two managers Aziz and Brahim are one of the kindest, friendliest most helpful people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. They genuinely want to help the guests and no request or problem is too large for them to solve. Their friendship, tireless enthusiasm and... More

The people here really make the riad. Asis and Ibrahim are extremely friendly and welcoming, speak fantastic English and French which can be hard to find in some places. There are also 2 lovely women who work here who can't do enough for you. For the price, the hospitality and the quality of the building I really cannot recommend this... More

Yes I would stay there again, it's better than a hostel/hotel!!! It has great character and a honest feel that I have never experienced staying abroad. Riad Massin has a 'home away from home feeling' that is really welcoming in such a crazy city like Marrakech. Perfect location if coming and going via train or bus and its still close... More
