“One of the best Riads in Marrakech”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

We stayed for four nights in this lovely Riad close to the heart of the city. We could not have asked for more friendly and accommodating hosts. The owner told us that during our stay it was 'our house' and he could not have meant it more. It was elegant, beautiful and spotlessly clean. Our room was wonderfully decorated and the bed was very comfortable, on our last night it was even garnished in rose petals! The roof terrace was a great breath of fresh air from the hustle and bustle of the souks, and if you are there for more than 5 minutes a staff will appear (seemingly from nowhere) with complimentary mint tea! The excursion provided by the the hotel was one of our best days, and at only 150 dirhams (about £12) each was incredible value for money. Despite checking out in the morning, we were able to leave our bags in the Riad and even make use of the terrace (and the tea!). The owner then showed us to our taxi and gave my girlfriend a rose as a parting gift. Simply cannot recommend it enough, if you are going to Marrakech and want a wonderful and authentic experience look no further.

We stayed for 4 nights. On arrival we had such a warm welcome by staff. Very glad they arranged a taxi to pick us up from the airport otherwise you would never find it.
The Purple room was simple, practical and very clean. The whole Riad was very quiet and it was lovely to have the roof terrace available for guests to relax during the day and evening. Breakfast was nice, especially the freshly squeezed orange juice. Everytime we came back from a day out staff would make mint tea to revive us! much appreciated.
This Riad is perfectly situated for all the Souks and is lovely to in amoungst it all. About a 10min walk to the main square. Even though the Riad is in the centre of things it is down a quiet alley so at night I'm not sure how safe i would feel walking back there as a girl on my own. However there were 3 of us and we never had any trouble.
The Riad Sacr comes highly recommended from all 3of us and we thank the staff for making our stay in Marrakech so wonderful. Just wish we could have spoken more French.

Compact and clean room, spotless bed linen, clean towels every day, plenty of hot water and good breakfast taken on the roof terrace. Located within easy walk to Souks and main square. Owner very helpful with advice both on arrival and during stay and also booked us an excellent day trip. Very friendly, this Riad was a good choice and has a nice relaxing ambience, and we really enjoyed our stay. Be sure to ask to eat in at least once for an excellent value for money meal nicely served - the best meal we had !!.

Much of the beauty of Marocco comes from the fact, that it is not taken over by big companies, chains and business-ideals. Riad Sacr is a good example of this. It is owned and run by a lively person, not by a standardized company. THE person here is called Kenza. She is the sovereign monarch of her kingdom, or rather, queendom. She is simply great, and so is the Riad. We are two friends, and stayed for a few days. Neither of us can think of any complaints. Location is very good, rooms are beautiful (we stayed in the yellow one), food is good and Kenza goes out of her way to help you. We highly recommend!

Greetings to Kenza & everyone at Riad Sacr!

Picked up by taxi arranged by e mail with Riad-this was excellent as linked up to local porter who took us through a maze of alleys to get to the Riad-excellent accommodation-v welcoming-mint tea-on arrival-big breakfast on roof terrace.Close to central square-so great location. Host also took us to Grand Taxi area and negociated a taxi to the mountains.
Would certainly stay here again

First of all, this Riad would be initially tricky to find if you are arranging your own transport. However Ahmed at the Riad kindly arranged taxi transfers for us which was really very helpful. It's in a great location, tucked away a few minutes walk from the souks and the square.

The riad is beautifully decorated in traditional style and the room we stayed in, Rouge, was small but clean with lovely decor - tadelakt tile and lovely soft furnishing. There was a fridge, plenty of hot water and an efficient little heater for the chillier nights.

Breakfast is taken on the roof terrace and is traditional Moroccan crepes or breads with honey and jam and Kenza makes a great mint tea! We also ate at the riad on one evening which was delicious (thanks to Kenza's mum!) and Kenza made a huge effort to dress the room with candles and created a gorgeous atmosphere.

They have a super-friendly cat, Mimi, as I am a cat lover I was happy to fuss over her!

Kenza was also able to get us a great deal on a day trip to the Ourika Valley, which was useful and good to get out of the craziness of the city for a day!

If I could have changed one thing I'd magically be able to speak French but this was my own failing and in no way a reflection on the lovely team at the riad!

Superb value for genuinely lovely service in a good location. Thank You!

Room Tip: We were in the Rouge room; the upstairs rooms may be slightly quieter.
