“forever my second home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2010

Riad Massin is a little gem allocated in Bab Doukala , north part inside the medina, near the gare des bus, the grand taxi, the supermarket, Gueliz and the hivernage.
The riad , renovated 4 years ago is quiet and an idea for single travellers with a tight budget looking for a Good accomodation. The riad is daily cleaned , clean towels and bedding. Laudry service available.The team is more than amazing and always helpfull , their greatest gifts are their hospitality that is second to none. It is my 9th return to riad Massin since 2009 , i am always greeted with the same warm welcome, served a generous breakfast everyday, looked after and guided when needed.
It is so easy to make friends there , Shesha , mint the, Wifi and internet acces are Free.
Berbere tent on the terrace and a sitting place .
Shopping and eating localy are great, Check and ask for Bar Aziz who serves chicken cooked on the barby/bread/spicy sauce/olives/water for under 19 dirhams!
Check the local Hamman ; a true spirituel experience, the local hairdresser and of course my local cafe place, all in Bab Doukala, Great place

The Riad is very nice, it's a little road but the people working there are very nice and available to their costumers.
They usually offered us tee, the breakfast is very good, and the room confortable to share. The bathroom is just outside the rooms and is quite clean.
But the best is a big Berber tent on the roof in which you can have night parties with your friends and the guy is very nice and offered us Nargilé/Hooka for free.
Price is good. I'd advice this hotel to every person who travels with friends and is looking for some fun in a nice place good to visit the city too.
The localization is good, in 10 min walking you reach easily both the Bus station/new town and the Old Medina of Marrakesh. It was a great place where to stay with young people.
