Riad Kaiss is a very special place to stay. Its location is very convenient to all the main sights. While we checked in, we were brought to a little alcove with a banquette and pillows and were served our first glass of mint tea. That was just the beginning of the impeccable service. They put rose petals on the bed,... More

We booked a week at the Riad for our honeymoon and couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. The location is ideal, a stones throw from the main square and within easy reach of most attractions. The riad itself is absolutely beautiful. A stunning courtyard, roof terrace and countless nooks and hidey holes to while away an afternoon with... More

From the moment the Riad's airport taxi drops you off in a hectic market, and your luggage is then trundled in a barrow down narrow cobbled alleys to Riad Kaiss's front door, you know this is going to be a different stay! Fear not, Hayat and her staff are on hand to greet you, ease any stresses and look after... More

I absolutely loved this place. From the moment we entered we were wrapped in the delicious embrace of the Riad. Sweet teas and cookies greeted us, then a tour of the rooms each more beautifully tiled and decorated than the last. Our twin bedded room had great a/c, comfortable beds, comfy seating area and good lighting. A sumptuous breakfast awaited... More

Riad Kaiss is not only very attractive, it has its own hammam and is remarkably quiet for being so close to Djema el Fna. Hayat and her team are so welcoming (offering mint tea and cake whenever we looked in need of reviving to brave again the melee of the Medina). The rooms are beautifully furnished and decorated and each... More

As the owner of a travel company, I stay a lot of places around the world. I brought my small group of 13 women to Riad Kaiss as the last stop on a 12 day journey around Morocco. We wanted to have an authentic experience in Marrakech - and we got so much more. We took over the whole riad;... More

Treated so well by Hyat and her staff - lots of attention to detail and such good care. Hyat wanted you to have the best trip ever and we did.Thank-you. The room was lovely - loved having our own breakfast terrace.

I have been lucky enough to have visited Marrakesh a few times over the years and this riad is definitely my favourite so far. My group of 6 arrived later afternoon and after a bustly hot dusty walk through the chaos of Marrakesh, we entered the riad and were greeted calmly and graciously by the delightful Hayat. An oasis -... More

There are so many glowing reviews about this riad but they don't tell the whole story. Yes, it is a great location, just steps away from Djemaa el Fna and it is every inch the traditional riad, including being blissfully peaceful. Several hundred years old, it delivers all of the character and charm which one would expect from such an... More
