All of the amenities you'd expect at a European boutique hotel with all of the Moroccan character and charm intact. You must try the massage/hammam combination, and breakfast is a delight. Enjoy the sunset with a bottle of fabby Moroccan rose and bowl of olives dressed with spices and preserved lemons. The riad's staff is also extremely friendly and helpful,... More

Great location in the medina but a quiet retreat. Stunningly beautiful traditional Moroccan decor. Our room was very comfortable with a spacious, well-appointed bathroom. Spacious communal area. Staff were attentive and professional. Excellent breakfast.

A stunning boutique hotel to stay, with great food for breakfast & evening meal - we could not fault this hotel. Only one slight thing was that there was no hot water to have a shower late afternoon when we arrived but it was fine by the morning.

yes, this place is difficult to find, and its the only one of the three roads that actually does have a sign on it. But if you're lucky enough to find it you're in for a real treat.IT is magical inside but it does have some rustic elements-after all, you are in the medina. I enjoyed the hamman experience which...

Followed the directions provided by our travel agency but difficult to find in the medina with no signs that we could see to find this riad. Eventually asked some locals who came to our rescue and took us to the riad. We were given a small dark room with no TV. The second room we were shown was bigger and... More

I was really impressed with this Riad. The staff were all very kind to their guests, which is always appreciated. The Riad was easy to get to, incredibly clean, and had all the amenities one could hope for (and then some). And the surrounding area was very comforting for a first-time traveler. I'll make it a point to stay here... More

Whole ambiance excellent - location, staff friendliness, including pick up from railway station ( get the raid to collect you as you may not find it first time in the dark! OK after a few trips in and out!) Courtesy of the waiting staff, cleaners etc.. Cleanliness. Food.

Kalaa is a very very nice riad. It's very well located, easy to reach, clean and with beautiful decor. The roam we got was a two story room, very spacious and comfortable.
