We had a comfortable stay at this quaint Riad and can definitely recommend it. The taxi dropped us from the airport when we first arrived just round the corner and Youssef, who was our main point of contact, met us there to show us the way. The Riad was very close to the medina and Youssef provided us with a... More

I have stayed in lots of hotels, but never as beautiful as this Riad. It was in an excellent location, only a ten minute walk from the main square. The room we had was just amazing and so clean. The food was also excellent, I only wish I could cook as well! All the breakfasts we had were different, but... More

The riad is in an excellent location for exploring the city and all the main sites were in walking distance. The staff were so friendly in making us feel welcome and were very helpful when it came to navigating a complicated city. We ate in the hotel for the first night and it was delicious. Local and fresh food which... More

We stayed in Riad Dar Massai for a long weekend in August. The Riad was very clean and the staff were great. Youssef was very helpful and Khadija was also just great. We ate in the Riad on our first night and in hindsight I would have eaten there more often! The food was delicious! The location of the hotel... More

I would 100% recommend this riad to anyone looking for a relaxing, friendly, calming, quiet place to stay amongst the madness of the Medina. We stayed for 5 nights and were blown away by the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. The dinner on the first night was one of the best meals we had during our time in Morocco.... More

Our time at Dar Massai was absolutely perfect. The staff went above and beyond to be accommodating - from serving us breakfast whenever we requested, to arranging a driver for a day trip - they really did a fantastic job and were so kind. We also had a delicious dinner there on the first night. The Riad is charming and... More

This riad is an oasis of calm and is a really beautiful building. The staff were so welcoming and kind, especially Youssef who gave us a map and pointed us in the right direction re places to visit. This riad is very central, being only a 10 minute walk from Jemaa el Fna and the souks. On arrival we were... More

Just returned on 23 june after 5 days in marrakech on a Hen (bridal) party where we stayed at Dar Massai. Overall the riad was very nice with friendly and efficient staff including Yousseff who was exceptional. On our first night our flight was delayed and despite our late arrival, everyone was very friendly (including the patient taxi driver that... More

Would not recommend this hotel for families with children as the atmosphere is one of silence and serenity. Yes, the property is beautiful and well designed and very calm ( apart from the Mosque beside them) but stay there with children...at your peril. The Moroccan staff are very friendly but the French lady who owns the property asked us to... More
