Riad Safa was a dream. Marrakech is a complete assault on the senses, but the riad was so peaceful, clean, and had such a lovely atmosphere it was a joy to return here after hectic days in the medina.
Francoise was so helpful, arranging trips for us to the Atlas Mountains and the desert (which I would definitely recommend!) and arranging transport to and from the airport.
There is no way you could find the riad the first time without that person meeting you from the taxi and walking you to the riad. Marrakech is a maze of dark alleys with nothing to mark one from the next. Francoise drew us a detailed map so that we could easily navigate the medina.
We paid 20 euros each for a fantastic meal on the night of our arrival, which we were so grateful for as we would not have been able to find our way back in the dark if we'd gone searching for somewhere to eat.
The breakfast at the riad was gorgeous, and varied everyday. The rooms were immaculately clean and I just couldn't fault it.
The only personal reservation I have is that I opted for the most expensive room as it was our honeymoon. Looking at the other rooms, they were of equally high quality so I should've just booked one of those.
I would recommend this riad to anyone!! Just fantastic.
- 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
