“Home in Marrakesh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

Stayed there for three nights in honeymoon. Fully satisfied with their beautiful patio, comfortable room with pretty decorations, adorable cats and friendly staffs. Not only the stay itself, Brigitte organized a day tour in Marrakech for us and made a spa reservation for me. We enjoyed our little picnic on the terrace as well. Definitely A+++ hotel and would love to stay there again!

What can I say, amazing place on the map of Marrakech!!! If somone wants to spend amazing holidays in this city I will definitely recommend Riad Boussa. Perfect location, soo close to the main square, clean and beautiful rooms, mixed of moroccan and european look. Because of the amazing owner and good customer service you can find this Riad like your own home!

This was my second visit to the Boussa. The first time I stayed with my Mum, 3 years ago, and on this occasion I stayed with my husband for 4 nights. The Riad was as beautiful and relaxing as I had remembered. It's in a perfect location, only 5-10 minute walk through the souk to the main square. Brigitte and her team were very welcoming, helpful and attentive without being intrusive. The breakfasts - served at whatever time is convenient for the guests - were taken on the lovely, sunny roof terrace and were the perfect start to the day. Brigitte was very helpful in suggesting various places of interest to visit and in recommending good places to eat for all budgets. I hope to return to Marrakesh again one day and would not consider staying anywhere other than Riad Boussa. Thank you so much Brigitte, Ali and the girls for a second wonderful stay.

My husband and I were delighted that we stumbled upon this beautiful oasis for our quick two day trip to Marrakech. Everything that we read on Trip advisor was true -- and we weren't let down in anyway. From Brigitte's hospitality, waiting for us to arrive at the Riyad late at night, to her arranging our breakfast-to-go for our early morning flight back, to the splendid recommendations on what to see and do in the Medina -- was just perfect. The Riyad's amazing staff (Ali, Youssef, Aicha et al) were so helpful and kind. It felt like home away from home. The Riyad itself is like something out of a magazine -- with the detailed touches and interior decorations without being too overbearing. Great location. Great staff. And a wonderful way to enjoy Marrakech. We wouldn't go to any other Riyad for our next visit. And this would be the only place we recommend to our family and friends.

Thank you Briggite. --from your friends from Bollywood :)

Dear Nausheen,

Thank you so much to have shared your feeling about your stay at Riad BOUSSA.
It was really a pleasure to welcome you, you were so nice.
It was a short stay for you but a very good one, enough to see another way of life.
I'm sure you will remember a long time the visit of the Koutoubia.
It's the first time a guest explains how is it inside.

We hope we will welcome you later with your family.
Warmest regards from all of us

Brigitte and ALI, of course !!

My husband and I stayed 4 nights at the Riad Boussa and highly recommend this outstanding beautiful riad. Athough in the heart of the medina, it maintains its own peaceful atmosphere,( punctuated by occasional welcome mood music).The interior decor is a stunning combination of Morrocan tradition with French elegance. Brigette has created a relaxed atmosphere whilst at the same time paying meticulous attention to detail in the way the riad is run. Her staff, Ali and the girls, who prepared and served delicious breakfasts on the terrace were always attentive and service came with a smile. Brigette spent time making sure that we had a map with all the information we needed for exploring the sights of Marrakech. Lastly, she welcomed the rest of our young family who came to call on us with a smile, mint tea and biscuits. We found truly genuine hospitality here .

I was a little bit worried about you because I sent you a message but I didn't have received a reply on my e-mail box. But I read your feeling on tripadvisor so...
Thank you to have shared it on this website.
It's very important for us.
I'm sure you will come back at Marrakech.

We had a wonderful stay with Brigette. The riad is beautifully decorated, comfortable, peaceful, and in a perfect location. But Brigette, Ali, and the rest of her staff is what made this riad the favorite of our trip. It has a special charm that made it a very unique experience. Brigette and Ali took care of us like family and truly went above and beyond to make our visit the best possible. They arranged our excursions to the Atlas mountains and Essaouira, and Ali even came to the bus station to hand deliver a ring I had left behind when we made a pit stop in Marrakech on our way from Essaouira to Fes. Then he stayed to help us get from the bus to the train station. I am eternally grateful and miss them both!

Dear Heather,
Thank you so much for your nice comment.
The Riad BOUSSA was your first riad and the best for you !
It's really a pleasure to read your feeling.
We did our best to help you to organise everything, it's normal for us but so important for our guests.
You will have very good memories.
Morocco is a very nice and safe country. Tell that to all the newyorkers.
We will be glad to meet you and Gregg later.

We have been so much spoilt by the warm welcome and the hospitality receveived during our - unfortunately too short - stay of just one night in Marrakech. Not only is the riad situated in the midst of the medina, its perfectly styled interieur and decor give you the feel of a truly Moroccan guesthouse. As the building has kept its original structure, the interior climate is most refreshing so that we did not have to make use of air conditioning. Brigitte, owner and manager of the riad, is most familiar with Marrakech and can give you any advice including on public transport. The dinner served in the patio was most delicious and we enjoyed the company of Brigitte and her crew while having a chance to exchange with other guests. Being served the breakfast on the roof terrace was a last great experience before we had to leave for the airport.

Dear Peter,
Thank you for your message and the pictures.
It was the first time for you but not for Mélanie, your daughter.
She stays with you this time.
The Riad BOUSSA is her house at Marrakech. She stays here every year and recommand the riad to the others members of your family (your other daughter, Max and Ursula..).
You liked it ? Perfect, sure you will stay more than one night next time, before to go to Essaouira or before to come back in Switzerland.
Come back this summer !!
Kind regards
Brigitte and the Riad BOUSSA staff
