“Gem in Marrakesh !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

We don't normally wirte reviews but Riad Massiba was very special to our hearts. We stayed there at the end of our stay in Morroco and it was by far the most pleasant riad we experienced. The riad is peaceful and intimate, the rooms are spacious and decorated beautifully, the internal courtyard enchanting and the roof terrace very enjoyable. Last but not least, the staff was ever so helpful and attentive to our needs that after such a welcome, we didn't want to go away.

We had an excellent stay at the Riad Massiba. We came on holiday with 2 other couples so had the whole riad to ourselves. Rooms were lovely and clean, breakfast was good served on the upstairs terrace. Just a short stroll to the square, what an experience that was!!
Would definately recommend this riad .

Thanks to Vivian, Ahmed and soumaya we had a very nice stay. The room was huge and very clean.. And the breakfast was delightful. The only bad thing was Hassan the taxi driver that was arranged by the hotel. He charges too much. For a very short trip in the city. About 10 min. He charged us 150 dirham. That's ridiculous. My tip, don't ask him to drive you!

We stayed for 3 nights and had a wonderfull time. Our room was beautiful decorated, spacious, clean, with a good double bed. Vivienne was a very nice, friendly hostes and made is feel AT&T home. She arranged a taxi (Mustuffa) for a day for us. We went skiing at the Oekamiden and to Ourika valley. Riad Massiba is at a good location in the medina. Around the corner of Restaurant Pepernero, the place to be for a delicious diner in a romantic, stylish restaurant. The famous square is about 10 minutes walk from the riad. So we recommend a stay at this beautiful Riad :).

This is an incredibly good value riad, just a stone's throw away from Jemaa el Fna (Marrakesh's main square).
Although we don't speak french, we overcame the language barrier with Vivienne (the owner) who was so friendly and hospitable. We were welcomed with a glass of freshly brewed tea before shown into our ground floor room.
Room is very good size, clean and very nicely decorated, including a library of books to browse through.
Breakfast can be served on the terrace or the sitting area in the courtyard. The orange juice was the best we've had for breakfast in any of the riads we stayed in Morocco.
Make sure you plan your route to the riad before you get there. It is not that difficult to find but if you appear lost, the locals will try to "help" and ask for outrageous amounts of money in return! A young man demanded 100 dirhams (£7.50/9 Euros) for just walking us for 50m to the front door!

Room Tip: Only flaw of the ground floor room is that you would want to keep the windows shut for privacy but t...

Had a wonderful 2 night stay at Riad Massiba. All the bases were covered from the convenient location, quiet, clean and warm room through to the fresh breakfast on the terrace....and this is before the help we had with reservations and VERY early taxis. A delight!

Stayed at Riad Massiba for three nights and had a lovely time. Vivienne, her lovely cats and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The riad felt like home, and the proximity to places in Medina was great. A great place to stay when visiting Marrakech.
