Having escaped the traffic, cobbles and human taxis from the airport we just couldn't wait to get through that huge wooden door that would lead us to a different world! Riad Samsara welcomed us with big open arms and we didn't want to leave it's calm and peaceful being. As we arrived we were ushered to a sofa in the... More

Thank you, Jacqueline for such a beautiful stay in Marrakech, and beyond. I cannot rate your hospitality highly enough: you helped me feel perfectly at home in the Medina, and to be charmed by its magic. Milouda ensured that I never went hungry, and that the rooms were beautifully looked after and impeccably clean. Fine, crisp linens, rose petals, thick... More

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
