My husband and I with our 2 teenage daughters stayed here for 5 nights in the Berbere bedroom and the Orange bedroom which are next to each other. We travelled in early April as we were expecting the temperature to be around 25C but summer came early which meant most days it was around 35C!! This made us extremely grateful... More

The entry way and (small/very cold) plunge pool are beautiful. To lounge there after the noisy market (medina) area you need to pass through every time you come and go anywhere is a real pleasure. The suite is on the third floor (no elevator) and feels like you have the entire roof area to yourselves as the terrace is there... More

A friend recommended Riad Shemsi so we checked it out on line and booked it up 18th - 23rd December. We were picked up from the airport and as we drove to the Riad, I did have to question had we made... More

We stayed at Riad Shemsi for three nights, 30 November to 3 December 2013. The riad is beautifully presented and spotlessly clean but it is the lovely service that takes it to the next level.

My girlfriend and I stayed at Shemsi from the 2nd to 6th of July, in the middle of Moroccan summer (hot with a capital H). We were expecting alot from this place due to all the good reviews by previous patrons, and we were thoroughly suprised. Riad Shemsi is a true oasis in the Medina, and far exceeded our expectations!... More

We stayed in riad shemsi for 4 nights and had a wonderful time. It was clean, light and really well decorated, with a pretty courtyard and a small roof terrace for breakfast, sunbathing or a refreshing mint tea after a hectic day in the souks. Noura and Mohammed looked after us so well booking taxis, restaurants and nothing was too... More

Girls trip, we had the riad to ourselves. It is beautiful! From the rooms, the pool to the breakfast quarters to the lounge on the roof! I loved the mint tea and the flat bread served for breakfast. The staff were quite friendly and helpful. It is 10 mins away from the city and costs a few dhirams by taxi.... More

As we were staying in Riad Shemsi for a week we decided to book the Chocolate Suite and we did not regret it. The room was spacious with a comfortable bed. The large shower room had lovely toiletries and bath robes. Breakfast is very nice with delicious homemade yogurt but there was no variety. We had two lovely evening meals... More
