Our breakfast was fresh and plentiful , the staff were so friendly and nothing was a problem. , they... More

This riad is beautiful. The furnishings, facilities and general layout make it a peaceful and authentic place to stay. The riad is situated in a fantastic location, close to a number of Marrakesh's must-sees. Could not fault the staff - they were extremely accommodating and went above and beyond to ensure our stay was a happy and comfortable one. We... More

Booked this Riad through BA holidays and found it to be a fantastic place tucked away down a quiet street in the medina. Within walking distance of the square and the souks. The staff were lovely and helpful making us feel really welcome. The rooms and the roof terrace are beautiful. Breakfast was delicious. A little gem in the medina.

We stayed for two nights in riad Altair in June 2014. Great location (in the midddle of the old Medina), an elegant interior design with fresh roses everywhere, good breakfast, and excellent service. Great place to stay!

This other hotel was not in the same class as Altair and we declined their offer of a evening meal as... More
