Once you have actually found this Riad in a maze of narrow alleyways it is beautiful inside. We had the room on the top floor, which was perfect and traditionally decorated in a modern african theme. There are no views from the rooftop terrace, but it does get sun all day long, which is great. The food at the Riad... More

Although we didn't like the location of Dar Massai, this little Dar is quaint. The room we booked was rather small but clean. We tried one of their special meals which we loved but we found it a bit overpriced camparing it to the prices outside. We tried to book a day trip to the waterfalls but the hotel staff... More

This small riad nestles inside the Medina in Marrakech not far from the main square. Our taxi dropped us close by and we walked the final 200m up a narrow lane with our bags carried in a wheeled cart sent by the riad. A pot of hot mint tea is the usual welcome for guests in Morocco and this was... More

My boyfriend and I recently returned from a trip to Marrakech, and were incredibly pleased with our stay at Riad Dar Massai. The location was perfect: 15 minutes walk to the main square and most touristic attractions in Marrakech; also well situated for a quick taxi ride to the airport. The Riad itself was beautiful, well decorated, and impeccably clean.... More

My husband and I had a pleasant stay at Riad Dar Massai. The Riad is a peaceful haven away from the hustle of Marrakech. We stayed in a room on the ground floor which was traditionally decorated and cleaned daily. The bathroom was traditional in stone furnishings and we had very soft towels! We would've probably preferred a room on... More

We are just back from a week at Riad Dar Massai and I cannot rate it highly enough. Our flight was delayed and then we had a long wait for immigration but our taxi which was arranged by Yousseff was there waiting as promised. We had arranged to have dinner at the Riad on our first night and I had... More

Sorry Youssef this a bit late. The raid is in a very quiet area , you feel like your in a different world after you leave the Medina. It's a short walk to the main square. Youssef is most helpful arranging trips and taxis.breakfast was excellent, the raid was very clean and lovely decorated. The evening meals were wonderful 18euro... More

Myself and 3 friends stayed at Dar Massai for 3 nights sharing 2 twin rooms. We could not have felt more welcome or been looked after so well by Yūsuf and his staff. Rooms were very clean and beds were lovely and comfortable, the breakfast was very nice. The Riad is very near a market but the amazing thing was the... More

Traveled with three friends, out stay here could not have been better the staff and especially Youssef were brilliant, could not fault their hospitality. If you are going to Marrakesh definitely stay here you would not be looked after better in a five star hotel. Excellent, could not recommend them highly enough. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
