“Gorgeous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2007

Stayed here for 4 nights and absolutely loved it. Everything about our stay here was perfect. The rooms were nicely decorated and were very comfortable. The staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome and to give us information about Marrakech. We ate in the riad 2 nights and the food was freshly prepared and cooked just for us as we were the only residents eating there that night, it was absolutely heavenly and was served up on the roof terrace which made it even more atmospheric. Would highly recommend this place.

Halcyon, hypnotic, hedonistic, these are the best adjectives to describe Morrocco and this riad particularly.

Old Medina Marrakesh is like a scene from Dickensian England, but any
urban prejudices of European city dwellers are soon forgotten once the door of this small, boutique property is opened, invariably by a smiling Samir or the truly wonderful Atif, the latter of whom especially made our stay not only enjoyable but a memorable experience from a pampering and emotional perspective..he really is THAT good. Another reviewer mentioned that not many of the staff spoke English, well we found that an irrelevance, we were in North Africa after all and Atif's english was of a high standard and he was more than happy to converse in French or Arabic assuming your linguisitic skills can cover a similar range.

Our bedroom was long and narrow, but very clean and quiet, even though located on the ground floor near the main door. The communal areas are all beautifully appointed, and the only noise was the occasional bustling of the domestic staff as they went about their business or prepared a light meal for you. Although proper meals can be taken, we preferred to eat out and experience the food of 'The Place' and further afield, what we ate in the riad was good, especially the fried, eggy doughnuts for breakfast, in whose over indulgence our expanding waistlines bears testimony!

Enjoy Riad Habiba, you won't be disappointed.

We stayed in Riad Habiba during the high season (Christmas) for two nights. I could not fault this riad (and we had seen many during our two weeks in Morocco). And it was an easy 5-10min walk to the Medina/souks etc.

The entire place was well kept and clean, with a wonderful, relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We stayed in the African themed room (one of four themed rooms) and it was everything the website claimed.

There were no nasty surprises here and well worth the price.
The staff spoke both english and french and were helpful.
Would stay there again...

Beautiful place, very peaceful. Only problem no one at all spoke any form of english and we spoke only a little french! Did get a little frustrating, although they made every effort to make us feel welcome and help us. No pool or tv in rooms. Only stayed last 2 nights of holiday and that was just about enough. Fantastic location 15 min walk from square.Would reccommend.
