We selected this riad on the basis of the reviews and were not by any means disappointed. Me and my partner were the only guests staying at riad safa and so had full reign of the beautiful roof terrace every morning and relaxing lounge every evening. Having said this, this would be an ideal place to rent out fully with family and friends. Jean Michel (Frederic was unfortunately away),made us feel very welcome, gave us some invaluable advice about haggling and catered to our every need before we even had a chance to ask. Like others have commented, we strongly recommend having at least one evening meal there - the chicken tangine was delicious! In relation to the location, the riad is about a ten minute walk to the manic fantastic mayhem of el Jemma fna and the souks. Although there are indeed closer roads /hotels to the centre, there are a number of hidden stalls and shops on route along a series of winding alleyways which very few tourists get to see - this is where most of my shopping was done. In short, a lovely few days.... I highly recommend! Barbara & Mark
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome at Riad Safa, a true haven of peace in the exciting Medina of Marrakesh.Riad Safa is located in one of the last authentic parts of the old city (medina), with some of the major cultural institutions just around the corner, and ten minutes by foot from the famous Jemaa el Fna square.Safa means serenity or pureness in Arabic, and it is our aim to provide you with a feeling of pure wellness during the longer or shorter time you stay with us. The atmosphere therefore, is very quiet. Even at the moments that the Imam of the neighbouring Mosque spreads his prayers over us; then you feel the mistery of the East and the presence of the languorous city.We speak English, French and Dutch and we love to help with everything you would want to be assisted with; whether it is a transfer from or to the airport, the booking of an excursion, or to have you accompanied safely home through the myriad of narrow alleys by our helpfull staff, after a 1001-night dinner in the medina.We want you to feel comfortable, and at home with us.Affordable luxury, that is what we want to offer you.Marrakesh is a bustling and buzzy city, so it is nice to know that after a tiring day of shopping in the souks (covered markets) or a visit to one of the palaces, you can immerse yourself in the lovely quiet of our Riad, and relax in one of the intimate "salons" or, during spring and summer, cool down at the small rooftop pool with a dewy glass.At night we offer a delicious "table d'hotes" in a romantic setting on the roofterrace, or indoors, just as you prefer.In-house hammam & wellness • we have a small hammam on the rooftopterrace, which you can book• on demand we can arrange for scrubs, massage, facials, pedicure and manicure. ... more less
