“Riad Bahia Salam - We will miss you!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2012

Hi we just returned back to the UK from Marrakesh, both me and my wife went there for the 1st time. It took us one day to get used to the culture shock, but we began to love the place, the riad really was authentic, quiet with superb helpful staff, The rooms are very clean and hot water never runs out, I loved our room the ceiling was amazing and we had all the mod cons we needed, we were lazy as we had breakfast in bed and only went to the roof terrace for lunch or tea after 11am. The terrace is beautiful, relaxing and the views of the snow capped mountains was beautiful. There is a lot to say about this riad as we were there for a week, my wife had the hammam treatment and she said the suite was beautiful. The location was brilliant only 5 mins to Princes Street which leads onto Jamea Al Fna (the main square which is the hub of activity in Marrakesh) The staff are always ready to help and room service is very quick and polite. We awoke this morning and decided, we are going back there one day soon.

We were taken here by someone working at a smaller riad which was full. It was fantastic, truly an oasis in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. The location really couldn't be better -- It's just a couple of minutes' walk from the Djemma el Fna in one direction, and a couple of minutes to the Place des Ferblentiers and the Bahia Place in the other direction, so there are lots of options for restaurants nearby. There's also an inexpensive guarded car park directly across the street which is convenient -- we left our car there for 3 days and went around Marrakech by foot and horse carriage. The street the riad is located on is very busy by day, but you walk inside and the riad is quiet and cool. The terrace is amazingly beautiful with a great view of the Koutoubia mosque and even the Atlas Mountains.

We were 3 people who wanted 3 beds, so many riads are too small. The Bahia Salam added a cot to our room but it was still large enough for the 3 of us and our bags. Our room did not have an external window but only opened to the walkway and the courtyard, which is typical of medina houses. It makes the room a bit dark, especially since you will want to keep the shutters on the window for privacy. That's about the only drawback. Otherwise, the staff were pleasant and helpful, and the decor of the rooms was lovely. We thought it was of good value All in all, it was really much nicer and in a better location than we'd dreamed we could find and afford in Marrakech, with the charm we'd hoped to find in a riad.

It was our first trip to Morocco and we staid one week in lovely Riad Bahia Salam in Marakech. I can recommend this riad to everybody.The staff was extremely friendly, helpful and service in the riad was excellent ! Very clean,beautiful design and decoration, good breakfast, great location and easy too find !! Even the riad is located in noisy street, in side is silent and peaceful place to relax.We could also reach most of the famous tourist attractions on feet and the famous square Djema el- fna is just behind the corner - prox. 5 min walking from riad.

Stayed here for 3 nights in January 2012, and what a nice place.

Marrakesh is manic, and this hotel is right on a main street, But once you step in the mayhem is left behind and everything is peaceful.

My room had everything I needed - free safe, free wi-fi, TV, air-con. The rooms are cleaned everyday.

The staff are really friendly.

The hotel has a roof terrace, where you can view the street below. There is a dining room off here where they serve breakfast - very nice.

They also serve dinner and evening meal, and I had this in my room one night - no problem at all.

The location is a 10 minute walk from the main square - Djemaa El Fna.

I liked this hotel. Being honest I couldn't fault it.

Room Tip: Mr room was on the ground floor but hand no windows - it was an internal room

I just finished reading the famous book " Une enfance au harem" by Fatima Mernissi. I was craving to stay in one of these multi-floor, extended family house and this drove me to book this riad on the internet. I was not disappointed. The architecture is refined, the rooms are tastefully decorated and the staff is very friendly. Breakfast at the roof-top restaurant with views of the snow-capped moutains and the Masjid is an amazing experience. I recommend this place to anyone looking for a truly authentic Moroccan experience.

Staying in Riad Bahia was an unforgettable experience. Tired after traveling, heat, nosie and multiple stimulus coming from all over in Marrakech You find your self in that oasis of calm. Rooms are super comfy and clean, staff friendly and helpfull. Views from roof terace amazing, plus great tradicional Morrocan food.
Would definately come back. Highly recommended!

Booked this Riad for our honeymoon and was not disappointed. The deal through Late Rooms was fantastic, it gave us one free night- which ended up being not much more for the week as if we had booked a room the next size down.

The most memorable aspect of this Riad is how clean it is. The staff were cleaning constantly, even the pavement outside. Which is very re-assuring as I was pregnant and was especially conscious of cleanliness. The Riad itself is beautiful & very stylishly decorated. The location is perfect, its on a main road so its easy to find, plus its right inside the medina so a short walk from all the main attractions. We both really enjoyed the breakfasts, with pancakes, omelettes, croissants, bread, jams, juice, tea & coffee & yoghurt. This was much more enjoyable than a typical greasy english fry-up. Also better than a buffet as it was freshly prepared.

I couldnt fault the staff, who were extremely helpful and friendly. Many nights bringing food up to the room for late night pregnancy cravings! The food was very well priced so we ate at the Riad often. We also spent lots of time relaxing in the sun on the terrace.

We would definitely stay here again.
