The hotel itself is excellent value for money - a quaint and well-restored little riad getting all the basics right. Not 5* luxury but perfect for friends travelling together. Good location 10 mins walk from the main square and near to the sights in the southern half of the medina. I found the beds a bit hard but this is... More

Riad Kssar El Mellah is beautifully designed and very welcoming. The staff (owners) who live on site, are very attentive and always there to tend to any needs or answer any questions. The pool was a blessing for a dip in the afternoon to cool down. We stayed on the top floor (Nomad room) which was very hot and the... More

I would say this riad is in a great location but not near many other riads although never felt in any danger. The room itself was pleasant, quite warm but the noisy a/c tool care of that. Bathroom was nice but the shower needs a curtain as it wasn't big enough to contain the spray from shower and hence makes... More

The staff at this Riad were extremely helpful to us during our stay. They were extremely easy to communicate with and always on hand to tend to our needs/requests. The roof-deck was lovely and we were able to make ourselves very much at home in the siting room downstairs, after somewhat chaotic days outside in the Medina. It was also... More

We stayed at Kssar El Mellah for three nights in early March. We visited Marrakech for a bit of winter sun, but actually got more rain than in the UK, but our stay at this Riad was great. I back others who have said it's best to get picked up from the airport- this can easily be done by e-mailing... More

This might be a bit bias of a review, as in my mind Zahra, Yousef and the rest of the Riad staff are practically my adopted family in Marrakech. Words can't describe the wonderful time we spent within this beautifully decorated and well managed Riad. I was there with my mother and aunt during the new year celebration. The dinner,... More

We just got back from spending a week at Riad Kssar over the New Year's!! It was a magical time indeed and staying at this small family-run riad made it even more special. Zara, Youssef and their mom are incredibly helpful, friendly, accommodating, and are genuinely interested in making you feel at home. And they do! Rooms are cozy and... More

We had made a 3-night reservation at the end of December, when Marrakech is full of tourists from all over the world. Unfortunately, the day before our departure from Casablanca to Marrakech my wife had a health problem, and we could not travel. I cancelled the booking via booking.com and contacted the hotel manager, Zara Lakhbabi. She was very understanding... More

We were among the first clients in the riad after its renovation, we really enjoyed the privacy the hotel gave it’s residents, all areas were accessible and even though the Riad was fully booked up, we seldom came across the other guests. We enjoyed having tea next to thé fireplace in the sitting area downstairs. There was plenty of space... More
