The service was very warm and welcoming. The breakfast was flexible and rich. I stayed with three friends and we were treated very kindly by all the staff. Very close to the Medina. It was in a very quiet street.

I stayed with my parents (my father is 79) and daughter (who is 10) for one night in the Riad 5 Sens. We wanted to stay at the Riad Elizabeth, where we'd stayed before and had loved, but it was full. The two Riads are right down the street from one another. The Riad 5 Sens is intimate but doesn't... More

Our stay at this riad was magical - we stepped from the noise and confusion of the medina alleyways into a beautiful, calm, peaceful haven - Abdelila had a taxi waiting for us at the train station and he warmly greeted us at the roadway closest to the riad. We were delighted to learn that our room had been upgraded... More

A beautiful & tranquil haven. Wonderfully located for the square and main souk. Our room was beautiful. The staff were barely visible until you needed them, and then were helpful & polite. We didn't eat dinner there, but breakfast was delicious. Only being there one night we didn't get much chance to enjoy the facilities, but there are plenty of... More

We stayed at riad 5 sens for one night and wish it had of been longer. A really lovely riad. We were coming from another riad in Marrakech and were met by a member of staff at a landmark and taken to the riad 5 sens. We had booked a specific room but were given the choice of two whenever... More

I stayed in the room on the very top floor of this beautiful riad. It was dreamlike- surrounded by blue skies and flowers. I was worried it would be too warm under the blazing sun, but not at all. The staff are so helpful, understanding and caring here. We were greeted with mint tea and as we sipped the long... More

This place is beautiful and the staff were extremly friendly & helpful. DO NOT book through Prestigia though, make your booking directly with the riad. Prestigia took £156 from me as a deposit and for transport to/from the airport. When we arrived, no transport had been arranged and the money I had paid had not been passed on to the... More

5 Sens is a beautiful, individual place to stay. The manager Abjilla (sp?) was always helpful, friendly and good humoured and couldn't do enough for us. The rooms are quirky and individual - on the ground floor around the pool and "reception" is the Sahara (large twin room with glorious bathroom), the Silver and the Cristal, however if you get...

Our cab couldn't get onto the riad's door so some random guy just lugged our bags onto his cart and asked a payment of 20 dh, although we never really asked him to do so. The riad was super beautiful, and we were served mint tea upon arrival. We stayed there for 3 nights and the manager gave us 3... More

Stayed for three nights at this beautiful Riad and had a great time. We were in 1001 nuits on the first floor which was lovely. My only criticism (minor) was it takes quite a long time for the hot water to come through the taps. These buildings were built to cope with high temperatures so we soon learned that in... More
