It was an amazing adventure our stay on Riad First. The owner and the son were always very kind and always present when it was needed. Very nice and complete breakfast by the pool. By the way, the pool is amazing. The rooms are all of them very beautifull and clean. I truly recomend.

We received an extremely warm welcome at this lovely oasis in a very busy part of the city. Extremely stylish and comfortable accommodation with excellent service. The rooms are very well-appointed. The riad is in an excellent location for exploring the city on foot.

We throughly enjoyed our stay at Riad First. All staff were friendly and accommodating. The Riad is beautifully designed and has a luxurious feel. All rooms look over the pool. The establishment has a roof top and several areas to relax in. It is well maintained and very clean. The only issues we faced were a lack of lighting in... More

We could not speak more highly of Riad First! The Riad itself is stunning and contemporary with designer furniture and accessories. The location is ideal, set within a quiet street of the Medina in walking distance to the souks, restaurants and main attractions. The staff were very friendly and made us feel right at home. They kindly arranged for someone... More

We stayed for 3 nights in room Chapter 3, the room was really big and spacious and nicely decorated with a comfortable bed and felt quite private. One thing I would mention is that in this particular room, the bath/ shower are located at the far end of the bedroom so are visably, which some people might not want but... More

We moved from a "5-star"-hotel since it didn't match our expectations. At our first visit at Riad First we were welcomed by a adorable women how ran the riad. Like a loving mother she cared for us to have the best stay possible. Her sons also treated us with world class service. Example: My shoe broke and I asked for... More

Very chic, contemporary riad in the medina, quite a surprise from the old front door at the street! Quiet street off the hustle and bustle. Fatima and Bada are wonderful and provide a lovely service. Super friendly and charming. Rooms are excellent in size, well equipped and lushly furnished. Free wifi is good and breakfast was nice. I would definitely... More

Very welcoming, always willing to help with directions, tour guides and places of interest. Very cultural experience, on the street just a plain door but inside a paradise of modern and Moroccan features including a lovely pool to refresh after walking the souks in the heat. Room was spacious and unique, cleaned everyday. Food was delicious, although the one evening... More
