I was unsure when I booked, but super glad to have. Perfect location (a few minutes from the heart of Marrakech) but still in a quiet area. Lovely riad, beautiful rooms and super helpful and friendly staff. Foad really helped us out by organising some last minute trips that were cheap and great fun. The other younger guy there (i...

We spent 3 nights at Riad Balkisse: the first 2 not very good, since our room was at the noisy low floor very close to the entrance and reception, the last at the 1st floor and was definitely better. Anyway we had to accept it since we did our reservation only the day before! :) The room costed about 680DHM... More

Our first impressions were very good: beautiful, comfortable riad, in traditional Morocco style, good rooms, everything was well taken care off. The staff and the manager, were friendly and hospitable. The manager, Foad, personally met us at the hotel close by and was very helpful in everything. The location of the riad is close to the Jemaa El Fna square... More

Riad is very nice. The location is perfect because it's near Jemaa el Fna but in a quiet area. Breakfast is good and room was clean and cool thanks to air conditioning. But the most important riad's quality is the staff's helpfulness. Fadoua and Hafida are very nice and smiling.. Nabil is funny, he always has a ready answer. They... More

Location was very convenient - a few minutes walk from the main square. I asked for a navigation to the hotel and was sent a map by email that was really helpful so... More

We only stayed one night in this Riad but it was the best so far of the three Riads we have stayed in on our three visits to Marrakech. The room was spacious and comfortable. The staff were exceedingly friendly and helpful. The breakfast on the roof terrace was substantial and adequate. The location is very convenient to the medina.... More

This riad is clean, conveniently located with very helpful and friendly staff and owner. The location is very close to the main strip, but away from all the hustle and bustle noise. They have food available for breakfast and dinner. For dinner, you order in the morning for that night. The food is very good and quite a spread. Good... More

We chose this riad because of its location. This place wasn't difficult to find at all. We took the number 19 bus from the airport, and it was only a 5 min walk on the main street from the stop outside kfc near the square (see trip advisor forum for airport bus info). On arrival we were greeted by a... More

I was collected at the station, where the train from Tangiers was an hour late. The young man drove me through Marrakech and as it was now after 9pm, the streets were teaming with people and he was unable to get close to the Riad. He shouted to another guy in the crowd, who then proceeded to take me on... More
