“My daughter called it a sanctuary...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

and she is only nine. And boy was she right. From the moment we arrived into Riad Boussa the welcome was warm, the air filled with the scent of essential oils and our room a haven after the frenetic trot through the Marrakech alleys. Madame Grillion and her staff organised a welcome round of the ubiquitous mint tea and sat with us to show us the ropes, suggesting places of interest and good restaurants. Each suggestion was on point and we really valued all of her local input. The breakfast was tasty and satisfying. The location central. I have only high praise for this little Marrakech jewel.

Sonja, the children say always the truth... She liked her room with the hiding bed. She was very nice. Thank you to have sent your feeling just after your stay. It's very imporant for us.
Come back in summer for more adventures !

My friends and I visited in early October, 2012 and we just loved Brigitte and her lovely Riad. From the moment we arrived we felt like we were treated like royalty. Even the two resident kitties are so happy in the nirvana in the perfectly located Riad. Brigitte spent an hour with us to tell us must see places and she set up reservations for us to a lovely hammam. She welcomed in two of my friends staying at another Riad and she and her lovely staff made us dinner two nights in a row. We were able to relax, get Internet and enjoy wonderful food and fabulous accommodations. I highly recommend that you book to this road. She has four rooms so make sure to book in advance of this gem. Thank you Brigitte!

Room Tip: I love room #2 but all rooms were great and had AC.

Fantastic experience. Brigitte (the owner) and Ali (the manager) made our stay wonderful. Very attentive and professional they gave us the peace we need it after all day in the souks. We will definitely go back. Brigitte is also a great organiser, ask anything and she will satisfy your request in not time. A place to be experienced

Riads are a somewhat quirky but comfortable alternatives to staying at hotels in Moroccan cities. We were recommended to stay at Riad Boussa in Marrakech, and we are very pleased that we had the experience. The owner, Brigitte, speaks good English so there was no difficulty in making the reservation. She asked us to call when we arrived in Marrakech so that she could send the 'trolley man' to collect our luggage and ourselves from the nearby drop-off point, since vehicles are not permitted in the old part of the medina in which Raid Boussa is located. We followed our guide down ever-smaller laneways until we arrived at the Riad's unimposing front door.
There were only a few rooms set around a small courtyard. Tiny by hotel size, but bright and clean, and there was no mistaking that one was in Morocco as the decor was shabby chic Moroccan. Quite delightful. Brigitte gave us helpful sightseeing information. Since we had a prior diner arrangement, we did n not eat at Riad Boussa until breakfast the following morning. We had this on the rooftop terrace, three levels up and overlooking an assortment of rooftops. Breakfast was typically Moroccan inspired, with fresh yoghurt, fruit, juice and baguette, and a choice of eggs. All done very nicely.
The pity was that we only had one night there as I would have like to taste the tajine that I smelled cooking in the kitchen!
We would recommend Riad Boussa for an unpretentious and enjoyable stay when visiting Marrakech. Don't expect vast rooms, but the cuteness and colourfulness is part of the experience.

This was definitely one of the perks of my short trip to Marrakesh from June 23-26, 2012. Situated about a ten minute walk from the main square Jemma el Fna. this very cozy, beautifully decorated Riad was truly comfortable and more importantly very clean! The shower area for our room was spacious with strong water pressure that was fantastic at the end of a long, hot walk through the Souks. The owner, Bridgette, was extremely helpful and pleasant, and her staff like Jamella and Ali made sure we had what we needed and served a delicious breakfast (that changed every morning) and much appreciated mint tea in the afternoons when we needed to wind down. Beds are comfortable in the rooms and lots of space to lounge around when needing some time to cool your heels or escape from the heat. Would go back and stay there again! Shukran to the staff of Riad Boussa.

Room Tip: There are rooms with either a matrimonial bed or two single beds, so depends on how many you are tra...
