A very good option closed to the place place Jewaa El-Fna. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms size and bathrooms are good however the rooms with access to the inside Riad (mot of them) are quiet noisy in the evening and early morning when people are having dinner or breakfast . The airport transfer is on the... More

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.

The location is perfect, the riad is beautiful and the breakfast is delicious but the great thing about this place it's the magnificent staff. They will do everything to make you feel welcome. I would gladly return there.

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.
