My girlfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely Riad in the Kasbah area of the old city. It was well located, just a few minutes walk from the main square at Djemaa el-Fna, and a short walk/quick taxi away from all of the old city attractions. The Saadian tombs and Kasbah Mosque were at the top of the street. The Riad provided a relaxing, tranquil escape from the busy streets. All of the staff were very helpful and friendly, with lots of local knowledge to help us get the most from our trip. We were welcomed with a delicious pot of mint tea upon arrival. We opted to stay in the brune room on the first floor. It was clean, spacious, and we got a good night's sleep every night. The facilities are good, with a plunge pool in the courtyard, and a lovely rooftop terrace for breakfast/meals, with sun loungers. We were also able to arrange a transfer to/from the airport through the Riad. One of the best aspects of our stay was that the staff were flexible with the timing of breakfast, and check-out. They also recommended a well-priced spa for a hammam/massage that was a short walk up the street. All in all we had a great time, and thoroughly recommend Riad Aliya.

Room Tip: Pick a first/second floor room for more privacy from the courtyard/pool area... The brune room was l...

This is our first time at a Riad by not our last. The 6 rooms are gorgeous and traditionally decorated all with a great view of the courtyard and plunge pool. Id recommend a suite on the 2nd floor. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Wifi is included but it was hard to pick up a signal in some areas. The Riad is located off Rue de Kasbash in a traditional Muslim neighborhood and difficult to find for the first time visitor. I would recommend booking transportation from the airport in advance.

What an amazing place, so beautiful, wouldn't be out of place in South Beach Miami, but still with some Moroccan charm. The staff are awesome too, especially Hannane, she went above and beyond. If you want a really comfortable place to relax and escape the madness outside, but close enough to experience it, this is the place. The food is amazing too, the chef cooked us some amazing meals, some of the best we had in Morocco. And the maid was so sweet and kept the place looking so fresh + tidy.

Room Tip: Any of the ensuite rooms, they are all great.

We booked this online after reading its good reviews and weren't disappointed, its located in a side street in the Kasbah area approx 15 minutes drive from the airport and a 10 minute walk to the Medina.Our taxi was arranged by the owners and on arrival at 10am we were offered drinks and breakfast.The owners and staff are extremely friendly and made us feel so welcome. We stayed in a suite which was on the ground floor and stunning! Decorated in Moroccan style,very clean and comfortable and smelt gorgeous! the air con was most welcome too ! Comfortable sunbeds surrounded the pool area and roof terrace, from entering the front door the riad looked and felt well loved and cared for.

We felt totally comfortable and relaxed and very well looked after here and will defiantly return, perfect ! I highly recommend Riad Aliya.

My sister and I stayed for four nights and were incredibly happy with the service we received at Riad Aliya. Staff are courteous, efficient and very obliging. They assisted us in bartering for good deals for excursions and provided us with lots of information to plan our stay upon arrival. Rooms are clean and comfortable and they make the best mint tea we had during our holiday.

Room Tip: First floor rooms are better than ground floor for noise, having slept on both levels.
