We recently spent 5 nights in Riad Shama and it was one of the best experience I ever had in an hotel in my life. The staff is amazing and very helpful, even if with some communications problem as we don't speak french. The overall atmosphere is quiet (except for the calling to the prayer every hour but well..we are... More

We stayed at Riad Shama from a week over Christmas holidays. Love the serenity and beauty of the Riad. The rooms are nice and comfortable and service is amazing. The rooms get cold at nights (especially december) but you can ask for fire place to be lit and make the room warm and cozy. Everyone at the Riad is very... More

An oasis just on the edge of the medina which allows taxis to get relatively close to the hotel (1 minute walk). Superb grounds with a beautiful roof-top terrace and tranquil courtyard and spacious rooms. Unfortunately, the man on duty spoilt our stay with painfully poor service. We waited at least half an hour to get waited on for dinner... More

What a beautiful serene oasis in the middle of a city that was described by an elderly gentleman on the plane as "bonkers^. Quiet cool... More

after arriving by plane it was a brisk walk through the medina to arrive at our riad. Once inside this modest dwelling became a tranquil and delightful stay with the constant smell of incense and the hospitable staff, we were able to relax straightaway. Our room was a good size and fitting in with the decor of mosaics and brass... More

Riad Shama and its sister Riad nearby were both stunning, as the pictures suggest. We stayed as a couple for 3 days at Shama and then 1 night at the other Riad. We stayed in the suite at the end of the pool, the room was 30 foot long (or more) with a double vaulted ceiling. The doors opened on... More

We have spent 4 days at this riad with 5 friends. Staff was very nice. The location is a little bit far from the centre, but we could always count on our 'angel' driver Fetah to bring us to the centre and pick us up late at night! What a great service!
