We stayed at Riad Safa at the beginning of April for the start of our Moroccan honeymoon and really enjoyed it! We asked for the airport transfer - definitely a good idea! Frederick met us from the taxi and after a quick walk to the Riad we had a cup of mint tea and talked to Frederick about Marrakech. He gave a very useful hand drawn map and lots of info about being out and about in the city. (top tip - put your sunglasses on and keep your ears closed!)
Luckily we were able to go and unpack in our room even though we arrived in the morning. We also asked to have dinner at the Riad on our first night (extra) which was delicious!
Continental / Moroccan breakfast was just what you need to set up for the day.
Everyone was very friendly and helpful during our stay and Frederick also booked coach tickets for us to Agadir and arranged a taxi to take us to the coach station. What a host!
Loved Kermit the cat and he came to see us every morning :-)
Thank you and hope to return soon, Inshallah.
- 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
