I loved everything! Lovely staff, really kind and helpfull. Amasingly beautiful rooms and other areas. We had booked only one night at first, but after other riad, we booked two more nights! I could come to Marrakech only to stay here in Riad Samsara! In our second entrance when we got into the room and we were tired and felt... More

Samsara is a beautiful beautiful Riad. The interior is calm and cool and the whole Riad has been lovingly restored. The staff are wonderful. Food exceptionally good - lovely breakfast and wonderful coffee. The birds play and squabble in the courtyard at twilight and sing a loud and joyful dawn chorus. The location is good - easy to get taxis... More

A wonderful Riad in a quiet corner of the Medina. Like, its sister guesthouse in Imlil, this is a gem of a place with wonderful staff and exquisite decor. The room we stayed in was beautiful, fit for a princess as Jacqueline says, with a huge bed and giant tub should you wish to take a dip... and rose petals... More

Riad Samsara is very conveniently located for the souks and has a street market on the doorstep, it is very much at the heart of Marrakech however once you step through the front door you enter another world. It is one of peace and beauty with many special touches which are attributable to the devoted staff who strive hard to... More

I have just returned from a week's relaxing stay at charming Riad Samsara. It is an ideal base from which to explore the sights of Marrakech's ancient Medina. A short walk takes you quickly to the fascinating old souks, fondouks and sights of this colourful city. You are also close to the local cafes and restaurants, where, after a busy... More

This is a gorgeous and welcoming place where we felt most relaxed and welcomed. The food prepared by the lovely Milouda was delicious and served on a beautiful table scattered with rose petals. Rooms are spacious with large beds and crisp white linens. A delight.

First time at Riad Samsara and unforgettable. Wonderful welcome by Jacqueline and all the staff there. So peaceful and a home away from home! Milouda's couscous is out of this world and every taste is catered for but don't go home without sampling the delicious local fare

I have been to the Riad Samsara twice. Once with friends and once on my own. It is a magical place in the middle of chaotic Marrakesh. Jacqueline is the most welcoming person I know and the Riad is amazing, beautiful plants and great terrace with beautiful rooms to relax in. The food is also excellent. If you need any... More

This is my second stay at Riad Samsara. Each time it is even more magical. Jacqueline's warmest welcome, the peace and beauty of the riad she has lovingly restored. Breakfast on the roof was relaxed and a beautiful way to start the day. Milouda's tagines in evening are out of this world. Now off to stay at Jacqueline's other magical... More

My partner and me stayed in the Riad Samsara in September 2014. We thought the riad was absolutely beautiful. It has been lovingly restored by the friendly and exceptionally helpful owner, Jacqueline. The welcome was warm and friendly and we felt completely looked after and at peace here. There are birds singing in the stunning courtyard in the centre of... More
