“A calm oasis in the heart of the Medina”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

We spent four nights here on a last minute break to get away from the stress of work. We could not have made a better choice. From the moment we arrived we were captivated by the Moorish ambience and friendly attentions of the staff. Nothing was too much trouble and after every foray into the madness of the Medina either Muhammed or Ishmael was always ready to welcome us back with keen interest in our experience.

The location is perfect. It's quiet but within easy walking distance of the big square and souks. There is a fabulous spa (Isis) within a couple of minute's walk if you fancy trying the hammam experience. We did and loved it but that's another review!

We saw four of the five rooms and all are distinctive and charming. We enjoyed our first floor room but would be happy to stay in any of the others next time we visit.

Breakfast in the sunshine on the roof terrace was delightful and delicious. We spent mornings relaxing by the blue tiled plunge pool in the courtyard, which transformed into a candlelit hideaway after dark.

We will be back. The only question is "How soon?"

Room Tip: All the rooms are lovely!

Super place to stay, impossible to find like most places in marrakech, make sure you do your homework on the location. Extremely hospitable, rooms are luxurious. If an when I go back, I will stay here, without a doubt.

We booked last minute and were not disappointed. We were welcomed by Mohammed who instantly made us feel at home. The room was beautiful and was cleaned daily. Ishmail made us breakfast on the roof terrace each morning, ask for the omelette!

My friend and I started our Morocco experience in Marrakech staying at the Riad 58 Blu. What a treat! Mohammad and Ishmail were very kind and helpful. We asked for a couple of referrals for dinner and were so impressed with the suggestions. The location of the Riad was perfect and very quiet after a busy day exploring the medina.

Room Tip: We had a room on the first floor and during the September heat it was a nice relief to rest in the c...

This accommodation was booked as part of a British Airways Holiday and excelled in every way. Staff could not have been more helpful and the riad was simply beautiful, relaxing and comfortable. 5 star anonymous tourist hotel it is not and all the better for that! Worth every penny to return to such a peaceful haven each day

Picked this Riad as a result of other reviews and we were not disappointed. Mohammad and Ishmail were so helpful and attentive, suggesting restaurants and arranging outings. The room was superb and the breakfast excellent. As others have said a calm oasis in Marrakech but within a ten minute walk of the main square. Thoroughly recommended for a stay in this fascinating city.

Short break after business trip in Morocco. Given the huge expectations created by the almost universal high ratings on Trip, perhaps disappointment was inevitable. I guess you either like riads or you don't , but this felt more like a 2/3 star guesthouse charging 4 star prices. The staff were helpful, but the room ( referred to as a suite) was damp and dark. Check out entailed an extra charge for mineral water of 40dh per bottle. It was 6dh from corner shop. This was cash only i.e. not on bill. More positively, the atrium and stairs are beautiful and I can see how other guests have been captivated. The roof top view is good and Ishmael made a good omelette.
