My husband and I spent 4 nights here at the end of a 10-day trip to Morocco and had a wonderful time. Our beautifully-decorated room was furnished with everything we needed and was right off the roof deck, so we had a lovely outdoor area to enjoy the sunshine. When we arrived, it was decorated with rose petals and fresh... More

My boyfriend and I had a fantastic stay at Riad Chbanate. From the warm welcome we received when we arrived, to the beautiful room and the incredible breakfast we couldn't fault our stay at all. It's in a great location, just 5 mins walk from the main square but the riad is a quiet and peaceful oasis from the bustling... More

Having previously stayed in hotels, this was our first time in a Riad and we were blown away at how we were looked after. Although the Riad itself is very beautiful, it's the staff that make the experience something special - they can't do enough for you, so getting everything you want out of your trip becomes so easy. We... More

we stayed at the Riad Chbante at the beginning of February and from the moment we arrived we were made to feel at home, nothing was too much trouble for Greggi or Samira. Rooms were spotlessly clean and very comfortable the bath was amazing. The location was perfect very close to the centre of the medina and we were able... More

This riad has convincing us from the beginning, it is generously built and you´ve always the feeling that you are in a private setting. The staff is very friendly and attentive. The rooms are tastefully decorated.

Just returned from a week at the Riad Chbanate. From the moment we arrived we felt relaxed and made to feel at home by the excellent Greggi and Samira. Nothing was too much trouble for them and the rest of the team. The breakfast every morning was first class, freshly made and plenty of it. The rooms were a good... More

From the moment we walked through the door we knew this Riad would be amazing. Fantastic location in the Medina, and the staff provided excellent hospitality and great recommendations (restaurants, hammam, walking/shopping directions). Our room was beautiful, with plenty of space and a lovely bathroom. The roof terrace is the perfect sun trap, even with a hot tub! Incredible breakfasts... More

Excellent Riad, as someone else wrote on here, don't think about it, just book it. I stayed for three nights with my wife and 7yr old kid. And as experienced travellers we all rated this as one of the best hotels we've ever stayed in. Hotel ambience was nice, nice music, nice atrium. Staff were incredibly friendly, helpful, hospitable.
