Built on the 12th century ruins of a Harem which was once the home of the Sultan Moulay Yacoub’s favourite concubine, 19th century Riad Kaiss was sumptuously restored and converted by the late architect, Christain Ferre, into an elegant and sensuous riad of astounding beauty. Sumptuously encapsulating and reflecting its age old origins, seven rooms and two suites surround two... More

My husband and I stayed at the beautiful Riad Kaiss for 4 nights in February, to celebrate my husband's 40th Birthday. I haven't written my review until now because it is hard to express how fabulous the Riad Kaiss and the staff actually are! From the moment we arrived and met Hayat, the manager, we knew that we had made... More

I've seen pictures of Riad Kaiss on a design blog 3 years ago and decided that if I ever go to Morocco I will definitely stay at it. When I was planning my honeymoon with my fiance and decided to go to Morocco I promptly looked up the website, contacted the hotel and booked our stay in Marrakech at their... More

Stayed here for 5 days in Feb 2014. What can I tell you ? The rooms are incredibly pleasant and only 9 in the Riad so it never feels crowded- every day there was fresh fruit and flowers in our room. The breakfast on the top of the roof terrace were just sublime. Only a 5 minute stroll to the... More

My boyfriend and i spent 4 days here in January and it was completely perfect. It is such a wonderful riad, with lovely little roof top terraces where you can relax and listen to the birds in the trees when you want to get away from the bustle of marrakech and they bring you complimentary green tea and cakes which...

Located in a delightful corner off the pedestrian road very close to the Place Jemaa El Fna. Highly attentive manager and staff, with a warm welcome upon arrival, with tea and fruit. Clean and beautifully well-appointed rooms. A complete 'British' Breakfast, thanks to the owner being the same. We were encouraged to have a cooking lesson and a hamam, the... More

It is hard to fault Riad Kaiss as we were treated like guests in someone's home. We stayed for 5 nights and the service couldn't have been better. Everything we asked for (and we did ask for pretty much everything!) was fulfilled without hesitation or delay. When trying to find a hostel nearby we were escorted by the Riad's staff,... More

We stayed at the riad for 3 nights in a suite which had its own private terrace, the room was beautiful as was the terrace with its own sun loungers and lounging area which was shaded, the riad itself is a lovely building decorated in a traditional morrocan style, it has a great location, a short walk to the main...

Riad Kaiss was lovely, very clean, and in a very good location in the medina and not far from Djemaa el-Fna. We felt we got a bit if a hard sell to have dinner there just as we arrived after a 10-hour trip and never got a tour of the place (and was asked for the tip by a staffer... More

An oasis in the middle of Marrakech. Great service, nice facilities very tastefully decorated in a mix of Moroccan and French styles. Makes you feel as if you are staying at your eccentric rich uncles villa. I prefer this experience over staying at a chain hotel, 5 star or otherwise.
