We really loved this place - our very first hotel in Marrakech. The Medina took some getting used to & Bakara was just ideal for escaping to some peace and tranquility when things seemed too hectic. The decor is lovely, the food fantastic thanks to Hassan's excellent cooking and the welcome could not have been warmer. We especially appreciated the... More

We stayed in this riad after a reasonable amount of research regarding location, facilities and price. We e-mailedthe riad before our arrival and asked them to book us a taxi to coolect us from the airport. At 15 Euro this wasn't the cheapest way to do it but it was certainly the easiest and being able to pay the bill... More

We stayed at the Riad Bakara for 4 nights in early June 2010 for my mother's birthday. We had 2 rooms, Chatelains and Africa. The Riad has been very artfully designed by Geoffrey and Anouk, a young French couple who are really nice people. There is a fantastic attention to detail and the whole place is visually stunning. The Riad... More

My fiancé and I have just come back from spending 3 nights in Marrakech. I did a lot of research into riads and we opted for this one based on its great reviews, and it certainly lived up to them! I booked the room (chatelains – downstairs) via email and we paid a deposit (one night) via credit card and... More

My husband and I have stayed there for 8 nights in September 2009. The Riad is very close to the big square (10 minutes walk) and very easy to find. For us it was like a wonderful oasis in the middle of the Marraketch madness. The staff was excellent (the two Hassans and the nice lady who tided up our... More

I'm an American who stayed at Riad Bakara with an American friend for 5 nights in July 2009. We planned to stay for 3 nights but decided to stay for 5 because we were so happy there! The riad is beautifully decorated with an amazing rooftop, pretty lounge nooks, and very tasteful rooms. It's all newly decorated and very clean.... More

We looked at a lot of reviews because there are so many riads in Marrakech. It's hard to know what to go for, but I thoroughly recommend Bakara. Why? Firstly, it is in a great location just a few minutes from the square, but in a really quiet back street that is easy to find. Secondly, the young French owners... More

After so much searching on the internet and most people saying you should stay in a 'riad' for your stay there (Marrakech) I opted for this riad after reading other reviews. BOOKING: Via internet direct with riad, paid by Visa over internet (emailed details). They do not accept cards at the riad as yet, so take money with you or... More

If you are thinking of visiting Morocco, do yourself a favour - take a trip to Marrakech, and book a stay at this riad. Riad Bakara is run by a young French couple, Geoffrey and Anouk, who along with their concierge/master chef, Hassan, are some of the nicest people you will meet in Marrakech. The riad itself is beautifully decorated... More

We booked this Riad through Eric at Riad Maipa; Riad Bakara is run by his daughter Anouk. Although Anouk and her partner might not have Eric's experience and contacts, they certainly make up for it with enthusiasm, flexibility, and kindness, which made our stay. And Hassan (who cooks) was effeciency personified. The Riad is not too difficult to find (just... More
