I have spent many months in Marrakech over the years and stayed in many Riads, some near the main square and others tucked away. Riad Samsara always provides that balance I need, the feel of calm and yet in touch with the real atmosphere of the winding streets that form the intriguing labyrinth within the walls of the city.

Riad Samsara was great, we only had a short stay there before heading to their other place, Douar Samra in the Atlas Mountains but were made to feel very at home. Great rooms, great food and great service. Cheers

Riad Samsara is wonderful, a tranquil and perfect enclave in the midst of the madness that is Marrakech! The staff are wonderful, helpful and friendly with a very adorable cat, Jade the Princess! Breakfast and dinner were wonderful, a taste of Morrocco. We also stayed in Douar Samsa in Imlil which was equally as wonderful. Would very much reccomend these... 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
