“woderful place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

we booked a four night stay at the riad and were not disappointed.
the riad is centraly located to all the main attractions and most are within easy walking distance.
the romms are ok with nice showers- only small criticsm is that the rooms could do with better lighting.
However staff in every part of the riad are so friendly and nothing was to much trouble for them.They even got one of the staff to take us to a restaurant that you could get to by either car or by horse.
highly recommend to anyone coming to marrakech.

An authentic way to experience the real Marrakech, clean, quiet with friendly helpful staff. Central location on the edge of the souk and close to good authentic restaurants and bars (vital as riad is "dry"! )! Loved it.

On arrival, you wouldn't be filled with confidence of the facade and the surrounding area, but once you enter the Riad Bahia Salam it is a whole new world.
The staff are warm, helpful and friendly and it is conveniently located in the heart of Marrakech Medina near to Djemma El Fna (less than 5 minutes walk away).
Breakfast is inclusive and is wonderfully set on the roof terrace. When we had dietary requests, they accommodated accordingly.
It is a basic Riad but feels like a relaxation retreat.
I didn't visit the Spa, but my only wish is that there was a pool to escape to in the scorching midday sun.

This Riad is not much to look at from outside but is beautifully and traditioanlly decorated inside with wonderful rooms and a roof terrace with fantastic views that gives you a great perspective of the city. It's ideally located within walking distance of everything you could wish to see and the staff are friendly. We even ate there a couple of times as the food was really good and reasonably priced. After the madness of Marrakesh it was really nice to have somewhere within walking distance that you could come back to and feel relaxed. The staff also booked us a taxi to the airport and put on an early breakfast as we were leaving before usual breakfast hours. Could not have wished for a better Riad for our first visit to Marrakesh. Would strongly recommed to others.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to be close to the center of Marrakesh and who wants to spend a relaxing holiday. Bahia Salam provided me the relaxation I needed- great staff, beautiful hotel and great location! I am usually the complaining type- but I have nothing to say against this little treasure ... oh and when you are there, ask for "Hassan"! Great guy!

It doesn't look like much from the outside but once you enter the Riad Bahia Salam is a beautiful and cosy hotel. The staff are incredibly helpful and friendly and it is well-located near to the main square (less than 5 minutes walk away). My only gripe was the lack of variety at breakfast, the rather hard mattresses and the fact that the hot water in our room was never really that hot. But other than that it is a great place to stay - oh, and make sure you visit the spa for a traditional Moroccan hammam. Definitely one of the highlights of our trip.

We were very dubious when we turned up at the Riad & Spa Bahia Salam as it is in the middle of a noisy, dusty street right next to the main square. However, we soon came to appreciate it's handy location, quiet rooms and wonderful masseuses! The staff couldn't have been more helpful and it really is great value for money. They are happy for you to consume your own alcohol on the terrace and provide glasses and snacks with a smile. The rooms aren't spacious but the comfy bed, safe, TV, fridge and lashings of hot water made up for it. Highly recommended.
