During our 5 day stay in the Riad Safa the high expectations created by reading the favourable review were fully realised. The riad was lovely in every way and the service impeccable. Francoise and Abdul were unfailingly helpful and considerate. Francoise arranged for us to be picked up from the airport and Abdul walked us to the riad. We highly... More

There is a lot of choice when it comes to picking a Riad in the Medina but you will not be dissapointed by Safa. Excellent welcoming service, we were provided with maps and advised on landmarks to look for as markers. The old town is crazy and it was a bit of a shock to the system as i felt... More

I couldn't have been more impressed with our stay at the Riad Safa. Francois is such a friendly, welcoming lady and put so much effort into helping us feel comfortable and helping in all ways she could. As two young women we were a little nervous of travelling in Morocco but she quickly made us feel at ease and gave... More

My trip started with four airports, three continents, two airlines, one haircut all in twenty-five hours. Now after all that I needed something calming and relaxing. I was not to be disappointed. After exiting customs in Marrakesh we easily found our pre-arranged driver who lead us to a comfortable mini van that brought us into the old section of the... More

There are so many riads in Marrakech, it's hard to know which to choose! We were glad we picked Riad Safa. It was beautifully decorated and well maintained by the lovely staff. The roof terrace was an oasis at the beginning and end of every crazy day (lovely to be able to buy a cold beer here - it's not... More

I had been meaning to for a while write a review for Riad Safa - we stayed back in July 12 (before I was familiar with Tripadvisor) so this is quite overdue! However I wanted to say how wonderful this Riad was, along with our hosts and how our first trip to Marrakech was made so memorable. It's no surprise... More

I stayed at 4 other riads during my time in Morocco and Riad Safa was by far my favourite. The riad is beautifully and tastefully decorated, as well as clean and a peaceful getaway from the medina. I always looked forward to the deliciously fresh breakfast every morning. Francoise was also extremely helpful, personable, and lovely to talk to. My... More

Reading the other reviews, Riad Safa has been referred to many times as an oasis and they couldn't have more right. We arrived in Marrakech in the evening after about 22 hours of travel and were exhausted but excited. Abdul met us at the shuttle dropoff (truly, spend the the 15 euros, it's totally worth it) with a wheelbarrow to... More

Riad Safa was our peaceful oasis while we were in Marrakech. The riad is located in a very quiet street of the medina close to a mosque. The house is beautifully decorated and even if you have your private room you can enjoy different areas in the house to relax and have a nice glass of wine! Our room was... More

Riad Safa was a dream. Marrakech is a complete assault on the senses, but the riad was so peaceful, clean, and had such a lovely atmosphere it was a joy to return here after hectic days in the medina. Francoise was so helpful, arranging trips for us to the Atlas Mountains and the desert (which I would definitely recommend!) and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome at Riad Safa, a true haven of peace in the exciting Medina of Marrakesh.Riad Safa is located in one of the last authentic parts of the old city (medina), with some of the major cultural institutions just around the corner, and ten minutes by foot from the famous Jemaa el Fna square.Safa means serenity or pureness in Arabic, and it is our aim to provide you with a feeling of pure wellness during the longer or shorter time you stay with us. The atmosphere therefore, is very quiet. Even at the moments that the Imam of the neighbouring Mosque spreads his prayers over us; then you feel the mistery of the East and the presence of the languorous city.We speak English, French and Dutch and we love to help with everything you would want to be assisted with; whether it is a transfer from or to the airport, the booking of an excursion, or to have you accompanied safely home through the myriad of narrow alleys by our helpfull staff, after a 1001-night dinner in the medina.We want you to feel comfortable, and at home with us.Affordable luxury, that is what we want to offer you.Marrakesh is a bustling and buzzy city, so it is nice to know that after a tiring day of shopping in the souks (covered markets) or a visit to one of the palaces, you can immerse yourself in the lovely quiet of our Riad, and relax in one of the intimate "salons" or, during spring and summer, cool down at the small rooftop pool with a dewy glass.At night we offer a delicious "table d'hotes" in a romantic setting on the roofterrace, or indoors, just as you prefer.In-house hammam & wellness • we have a small hammam on the rooftopterrace, which you can book• on demand we can arrange for scrubs, massage, facials, pedicure and manicure. ... more   less
