“A Special oasis of well-being and luxury”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2010

We were recommended to go to Riad Basim by some Swiss friends who had stayed there a few months ago. And we are so glad we did as we spent 2 wonderful, relaxing days at the riad. We felt really spoilt by the attention of Aziz, and that extra personnal touch that Sylvia gave us, creating a special oasis of well-being and luxury.
The Kasbah, in which the riad is located, is not like the rest of the medina. There weren't so many tourists and there was a sense of authenticity which in other parts of the medina I felt was missing. The medina of Marrakech is very big and so many riads are not always all near the famous square (Jamaal El F'na ), and at first we thought this might be a problem. But as there was so much to see in Marrakech and not all around the square, we in fact felt quite happy with the location of the riad in the end.
Thanks Sylvia and Aziz for making our stay so special - for the wonderful breakfasts on the panoramic terrace and the helpful advice and recommendations. Next time we will definitely book to do a trip with Mohammed - they sounded so amazing.
