We received a warm and friendly welcome from the owner of this beautiful Riad. The Riad was easy to find from Bab Chaaba, following clear signs and was well located for viewing the sights. We were in the Oceana room, which was a good size and nicely decorated. The king size bed was very comfortable and the seating area was... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and found the service to be excellent. The owner of this place is great, very friendly & accommodating. The riad is very authentic & right in the middle of the medina. The rooms are ok, decent size but the beds were not comfortable & there was a curtain as a door for the bathroom.... More

I had the loveliest time and treatment at Riad Safi. I wanted to say a biiiiiiiig thanks to Louis who was simply the loveliest host ever (no joke). I was welcomed with a sincere smile everytime I came. I was able to rest very peacefully in this oasis of a riad. Great place, great relaxation for a very low price.

I arrived at night without having eaten. The owner's wife prepared a tasty special supper for me that included the traditional bean soup. My room was attractively decorated in subtle gray, black and white tones with attention to textures. Other rooms had brighter colors combined tastefully. A breakfast of Moroccan-style crêpes, orange juice, fruit and good coffee was served on... More

Rashid made my stay a memorbale one. Although a little difficult to find you are certainly in the cetner of things. The rooms are full of charm and character although not modern in anyway. As long as you dont expect a 5star modern hotel then you will love it. Rashid will do everything to make your stay enjoyable including getting... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here two nights. Usually I just drive through Safi on my way to Essaouaria or Agadir. But this time we decided to check it out, and I'm so glad we did. The riad is centrally located and safe, convenient parking is near by. The rooms each have their own unique style. JM and Rachid were... More

My girlfriend and I stayed seven night at the Riad Safi. The Riad Safi is located within the Medina. Riad Safi is really an oasis in the abounding, just about medieval environment. The Medina and the Souk shows the original Morocco and not a tourist version. Excellent food, pleasant room in Hotel Riad Safi, you can use the wifi network... More

This Riad was everything we were looking for! The owner was very welcomming, the riad itself had a layd back feel and our room was very nice. It was easy to find and we received a key to the front door to be able to let ourselves back in. We especially liked the terraced areas and the central location. On... More

Although this is the oldest riad in Safi, you wouldn't know it from the rooms. It's quite modern and comfortable. Jean-Michele, the owner, is very nice and helpful. I would recommend lunch in the town somewhere and dinner at the riad. The dinner there was excellent. JM speaks some English, but communication was definitely easier in French.
