“Oasis in the heart of the Medina”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

For those looking for a traditional Riad in the heart of the medina, Angsana is ideal. Keep in mind that this is not a modern hotel and has many of the charms of a remodeled Riad (including some broken tiles and cats wandering around the courtyards). That said, we loved the experience of "traditional Morocco" with 4 star accommodations and 5 star service. The hosts - cous cous (his nickname), Mohammed and the team -- were fantastic. We arrived in the evening and had a personal escort to the main square to find an ATM, then our guide walked us to our dinner spot and left his phone number with the restaurant so that they could call him when we were ready to go back to the Riad. On our first night in morocco, this took away any anxiety and we felt safe getting home through the back alleys of the medina. After the first night, we found our own way safely and securely but the service was top-notch throughout our stay. The breakfast each morning is included in the room rate and was excellent. The lack of exterior windows made our room a bit musty.. But after all, we were in Marrakech and could easily turn on the AC! Great ambiance overall and we'd definitely recommend a stay at Angsana if you wish to stay in the old medina.

Room Tip: There are 6 different Riads in the Angsana collection and it is not clear which Riad you'll get...

I had 4 nights at the Riad with 3 girlfriends. Abdellah could not have been more charming,
and helpful nothing was too much trouble, from advice on where to have supper or organising a taxi/ guide for as long as we needed.
Marrakesh itself was great fun we walked to the souks as our Riad was ideally situated.
Another must is the Hamman and massage, quite an experience.
i would definitely recommend this Riad, all the staff very friendly, very clean and comfortable rooms.
Shopping was great fun and we will most certainly be back.
Many thanks to you all.

Room Tip: we stayed in room 4 a suite, very roomy, quiet all you could hear in the mornings are the birds sing...

Having spent 5 days walking the entire medina, we cannot think of a better base than this. Quiet, tranquil, beautifully clean and for most of the time, it feels as if we have our own private riad. Step outside and you're muted away from the mayhem of Jamaa El Fna, the souks and an easy walk to all the central sites.
Breakfast is excellent and included but otherwise food is a bit pricey and alcohol extremely so but what should you expect in Muslim country?
Book a first floor room for that extra touch if luxury.

My husband & I stayed 3 nights at this Riad & we have no regrets. Staying in a Riad is a must when visiting Marrakech & this one is ideally located. A short walk to the markets, the palace & the old square.
Rooms are beautifully decorated & exceptionally well kept. Wonderful showers & bathroom, & v comfortable beds.
We had a delightful breakfast each morning & dined here on our last evening. Good was lovely & local musicans played in the background.
After spending a day walking around the new town, we are glad we spent our visit to Marrakech in the old town, and we are also glad we spent it in this Riad. It's v comfortable, staff work v hard to make it a pleasurable stay. There are lots of little private areas to sit & read or relax, indoors or ourtside by the pool or upstairs on the terrace..
Cant say this place has any faults.

Al the staff were excellent and very helpful, they went the extra mile! I cannot praise them highly enough. Abdellah was always there and was so helpful. Even the ever smiling security men who escorted us back to our riad. Well done every one.

Riad Dar Si Said is located perfectly for a turist; close to the souks, Jemn al fna and the Medina. The breakfast is good, always starts with a big glas of fresh orangejuice. The staff is friendly, and helpful. In februari, the pools were to cold to use, but it was nice to sunbath on the roof terrace.

A lovely very warm welcome (and the anticipated green tea was very nice) We recieved a very good description of what to expect in and around Marrakech and took heed of recomendations made. We were encouraged to use our limited 4 days by seeing as much as possible and there was absolutely no pressure to use the facilities of our Riad.
We spent the first afternoon and evening familiarising ourselves with what was going on in the main square area (less than 5 minutes walk away from our Riad.
There is an excelent booklet on on Tours and Excursions in the Riad and we took advatage of it, spending one day on a trip to the foot hills of the Atlas Mountains and experiencing some village hospitality,ending up with a lot of wonderfull photographs and buying an authentic Taginewith the explanation of what to do with it !! We also had a cooking class in a another Riad (dlivered by the chef in charge of our and five other Riads.
An ABSOLUTELY WONDERFULL EXPERIENCE ALL TOGETHER
our room was very spacious ,comfortable and very well serviced. acouple of mossiake floor tiles were a little loose but bedroom slippers were provided alon with dressing gowns . It all added to the ancient historical environment . We would ,wholeheardedly recomend this place to anyone, who could cope with 19 (easy steps to our room.
On the 2nd floor is the swimming pool and bbq area from where one can see almost all of the city.
