When planning to stay in Marrakech, we must recommend this Riad. We selected it after careful research of various booking sites and tripadvisor. Pro's and cons: Pro's - warm welcome with tea and local cookies. - we arrived around 11 am but could already get into our room. - Fouad, as mentioned is a warm and capable person with a... More

The hotel is a little difficult to find but we asked for directions in a restaurant nearby and the problem was solved. The room was ok, clean and quiet, in the center of marrakech medina. Good breakfast. Be careful with the receptionist advice about restaurants because he will take you to the most expensive ones.

Our stay in Riad Balkisse was a pleasant one. Foad was really helpful and insightful. When we arrived, he gave us a map and shared with us places we should visit. He also helped to arrange for excursions and ensured our requirements were met. The staff here is really hospitable, friendly and kind. They took time asking how our day... More

My review will be based on Riad Chalymar. I was supposed to stay in Riad Balkisse but upon arriving, Foad the manager told me that there was something wrong with the water pipe in the room. So they had me transferred to another Riad - Riad Chalymar - owned by the same owner who owns Riad Balkisse, at no additional... More

We enjoyed our stay of more than a week at Riad Balkisse. The location was excellent; a short walk to everything yet away from the noise. Our room was fairly small without much space for our bags, but besides the bed we had a chair, a small table and a wardrobe. There was little natural light available, as our colored-glass... More

Foad was an excellent host and was so welcoming, as was everyone at the riad. He went out of his way to make us as comfortable as possible. The riad is in a great central location to explore the medina. All of the main sites were within an easy walking distance. There are a lot of restaurants nearby. Breakfast on... More

If I had a Guesthouse/Riad, FOAD would be my manager. The Riad comes recommended and does not disappoint. The staff, Rita and Hafida are gracious and helpful. It is well positioned close to the Souq within walking distance as is the bus/taxi rank and many other areas. The Rooms are comfortable apart from a few minor defects which we mentioned... More
