“Lovely and clean Riad”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

Initially I would stay in Riad Massiba with 1 friend. However 2 weeks before our stay 1 other friend decided to join us. We called with the owner, Vivian and this was absolutely no problem (for an extra price of course). Staff is very kind and helpful. The taxi driver they work with, Hassan, speaks English and I recommend to tour with him.
It is about 5 minutes from the square and there are great restaurants in the neighbourhood. Bear in mind that you might get lost on your first day due to the fact the medina is a bit of a maze. We are experienced map readers and love to walk around, but it is hard to navigate in the medina.
I recommend to go to a local hammam if you have the time, and do explore this beautiful city, but beware of children and young men trying to help you. They will ask you for money.
A tour to the Atlas mountains is also a great experience.
The room is lovely, spacious and clean. Breakfast is amazing, the self made jam for example is delish. The medina is crazy loud and noisy, but as soon as you enter the Riad you feel calm again. I recommend this Riad for sure!

Mint tea on arrival was lovely, Ahmed organised a taxi and helped with luggage. Vivienne the owner was super and with our limited French we managed to have some interesting conversations. Super breakfasts on the terrace and the ideal location for getting to the main square in Marrakech without getting lost. Riad is on a busy side street but once the door is closed the accommodation is a peaceful haven away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Rooms are clean and comfortable and tastefully furnished. Would certainly return.

Wish we had Remembered/been offered a home cooked evening meal on just one night (as we forgot that this was an option) rather than having to find something suitable ourselves all the time.

We stayed in Riad Massiba for two noghts in April 2013 and it was an excellent choice. Everything was perfect and the room was beautiful, clean and very cosy. Thanks to a super hospitality of Vivienne and Ahmed we felt like at home. We can highly recommend this Riad to all visitors. It is the best place in Marrakech. The main square was very close, breakfast was delicious and everything was nice and clean.

What a lovely riad!
We stayed me and my wife Jessy for 4 days at Riad Massiba and everything was so perfect. Vivienne and Ahmed was taking care of us and gave us so nice advice to visit the city.
Breakfast was delicious and fullfilling. The room was very typical and decorated with care. Thank you soo much Vivienne and Ahmed for this lovely stay and all you nice care. For sure, if we come back to Marrakech we will come back.

THe massive fight conducted by Vivienne and Ahmed ruined our whole two day stay, we had arranged food for the second evening and their shouting, door slamming and tears continued for 3 whole hours, we were trapped and felt deeply uncomfortable. Vivienne is all over you like a rash when you arrive and totally ignored us the second day - the only thing she asked us was she would only take a cash payment and what time were we leaving, this was despite the booking confirmation that this establishment would take cash. We ate here twice and found the food bland and overlooked, better to eat in the square, better atmosphere!!! And much cheaper

This is my fourth stay at Riad Massiba and it gets better each time.Vivienne and her staff are a delight. We are now greeted at the door on arrival like family members.Ahmed cannot do enough for us and even asked us if there was anything we would especially like for breakfast.I have stayed in many riads in Marrakech and this is by far my favourite. It's small and compact and you feel as if it is solely your riad throughout your visit.In some respects, I am reluctant to advertise it to the world as I am quite possesive over it as it does feel like 'my riad'. But do book if going to Marrakech. It is an absolute pleasure to stay here.

Room Tip: I always stay in the suite with my sister as it is very spacious, immaculately clean and very comfor...

I booked on their website availing their 20% discount promo for this period of the year. I emailed them the day before to have their telephone number but I received no answer; we eventually found the Riad with no big issues.
Once arrived we have been offered the Moroccan tea, but no moroccan sweets. As quite hungry after the trip we asked for a little snack, and been offered some croissant by Ahmed.
He will assist you through out you stay, and kindly help you with any issues.
It's a 10 minutes walk to the main square, that gets quite intimidating at night, even if always safe. Breakfast is so nice on the rooftop terrace.
Owe stayed in the Cannelle room, simply amazing. Even if on the ground floor we heard no noise at all, and the general cleanliness is just impeccable.
