We stayed here only for one night at the end of April as a couple. As we arrived we have been served with a typical Maroccan mint tea. The french owner is very helpful and friendly. He supplied as with a map, so it was easier to get around the city (We would have been lost without it). He also... More

First time in Morocco, and pretty much found this place by reading reviews- and it was great! We got an airport transfer which made the whole thing very easy (although €19 seemed a little pricey for a 20 min trip, but it was around 10:30pm so we figured for the convenience it was worth it). A lovely greeting with tea... More

First time in Morocco so it was pot luck when booking but we struck lucky. The riad is small just 4 bedrooms but this means it does not get noisy - three bedrooms face into the internal courtyard and one has a window onto the street. I was only woken once during the whole week by the muezzin at the... More

I was in few Medinas in Marrocos and the Riad Ida Ou Balou has the best one in my opinion. The bedroom was quite good with a shower and air condition. The breakfast was good and they offer mint tea in the arrive.

My wife and I stay at this riad every time we visit Marrakech on our to/from Casablanca visiting family. The staff are always helpful and friendly and Jean-Pierre, the owner, is a wonderful character. We are always made to feel welcome and nothing is ever too much trouble. The rooms are comfortable and clean and if you want a quick... More

Lovely riad with wonderful hosts. So helpful and nothing was too much trouble. One of our party had a birthday while we were there and they organised cake and even put up balloons. The accommodation is very comfortable and clean. Food (order in morning for evening meal) was lovely and the staff recommended some other great nearby options. The location... More

The best part of the hotel was the staff, Hisham. Very helpfull person. Breakfast is good. I don't like to eat sweet things like honey and jam at breakfast, so at least one kind of cheese can make the breakfast richer. It takes 15-20 min. walk to center, not many but some people bother and wants money during walking.
