Riad Samsara is a wonderfully calm, historic Riad. It is in an excellent location for exploring the old town. The rooms are well appointed and well cared for with very comfortable beds. On a hot summer day the cool shade provided by the Riad design, offers a haven from frenetic Marrakech street life. Breakfast on the roof terrace is a... More

we stayed here mid february for 3 nights. What a superb find by just internet searching for a riad as there are so many to choose from. Quiet inside, friendly staff, delicious moroccan breakfast, clean and a charming and relaxed atmosphere. Reasonably priced. 10 minute walk to the main souks. Taxi to main square where we ate supper one night... More

We had a wonderful stay at this Riad in January 2015. Large, comfortable rooms with nice decor, warm hospitality and help from the staff. Great dinner and breakfast made by Milouda. Authentic part of the city without too many tourists. We will definitely chose this Riad next time we come til Marrakech.

We had the pleasure of staying at this lovely Riad in January 2015 and it exceeded our expectations. Other reviews are correct in stating that it offers calm in the midst of the Medina, with a central location right where you want to be.

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!

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.
