I've stayed in numerous Marrakech riads and in most cases, the original building has been demolished and rebuilt as something that resembles a riad. At Tizwa, the original fabric of the building was retained and restored, and you can feel the difference. There's an elegant patina that much of the brash competition misses. It does mean that the stairs might... More

Arrival at 1am after 22 hours in transit could have been tricky, but we were welcomed warmly by our host Hassan and taken to a charming room, which had been traditionally and tastefully decorated in soothing tones (and I loved the space for the suitcases behind the bedhead, tucked out of the way). Complete with hair dryer, bath oils and... More

It's hard to know what you'll find when you wander down a back alley and knock on a giant wooden door in Marrakech. My recommendation is that you knock just once-– on the door that leads to the Riad Tizwa. The bed and breakfast experience waiting inside its walls is sure to sweep you off your feet and land you...

Just had 4 nights at this Riad and it was perfect. The location meant we could walk everywhere easily and yet retreat back to the Riad whenever we liked. All the staff were really friendly and helpful...we mostly dealt with Hassan who was excellent with great English. We to liked the coffee/tea outside the room in the morning and being... More

This Riad is just beautiful and the staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. I stayed here as I traveled with a group of 12 through Morocco and we were able to occupy the full Riad as it has just 6 rooms total. The rooms themselves were spacious and authentically decorated. The showers could be a bit cold if everyone tried... More

Just came 2 days ago from Marrakesh - Riad Tizwa. Everything was just perfect, The location is excellent - near the Medina, the staff (Hassan, thanks) is very friendly and helpful, the riad looks amazing. Start your day with coffee and tee at yopur door, continue with a tasty breakfast, and go explore!

We had a fabulous stay at Riad Tizwa and were very well looked after by Hasan and Mohammad. We loved the huge breakfast every morning-- pastries, fresh yogurt, fruit, coffee, etc. Definitely ask for the room on the roof deck if you can get it, as it seemed the most private. The roof has loungers and covered areas so you... More

The Riad is unfussy, welcoming, and run as a real 'home from home'. It made a fantastic base for exploring souks and the Sahara. Hassan and his colleagues are charming hosts. In addition to breakfasts wolfed down by a notoriously fussy 9 yr old, they cooked a great dinner. Being in desperate need of somewhere to unwind, without the soullessness... More

There is nothing to fault with this riad: the welcome is warm; the bedrooms are stylish, comfortable and spacious; the roof terrace is glorious and sunny; the food is better than any restaurant; the location is central; the staff are considerate, helpful and charming. Go, go, GO.

Truely lovely Riad - very tastefully decorated, with a beautiful roof terrace - many photo opportunities! Exceptional service (especially Hassan - possibly the best host we've ever had.) Tea and coffee left outside your room each morning, excellent idea! No time limit on breakfast - lovely selection of fruit, musli and pastries each morning on the roof terrace. Excellent location...
