“few days in a fairy tale”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

Me and my husband spent four nights/days in Riad Saba - like in a fairy tale. In reality riad, as such kind of hotel, for us, europeans, is smth fascinating allowing to feel a soft touch of fairy tale. Riad Saba's house was reconstructed by Jabran and Maria with a very big sence of esthetics, comfortability and has well-thought planning. We are happy to see and experience all that.
While living in the riad we felt safe, we knew that if we'll ask, we get exact answers, and this - trust me - is very important for any traveller.
Thank you Maria, Jabran, Martina and others - for everything! Great luck for all of you!

Our family (2 adults, 3 kids 6,9,11) stayed several nights at the Riad of Maria and Jabrane, in the very center of the medina of Marrakech. Beautiful, friendly and welcomening, an oasis in the lively and lovely Marrakech. It´s very close to the square, perfekt to find some rest before again entering the intense city. Maria, Jabrane, Martina and the rest of the staff made us feel at home in this very beautiful Riad. They were all very helpful to give us advice on exploring Marrakech and for that sake on excursions out of town. The food and the service was excellent. Maria arranged different kinds of excursions and could help with transport to Essaouria and airport. For us it was a bonus that Maria is Swedish, reduced the risk of misunderstandings, but english worked well with most of the staff. We will never forget this place, already longig to have a generous breakfast at the roof-top terrace before the adventures of the day. We strongly recomend this oasis, and look forward to come back./ Åsa w family

Just returned from another stay at the Riad Saba. Always a pleasure, The rooms are so comfortable and Jabrane, Maria and staff are always so welcoming. Nothing is too much trouble. We love this place and would recommend this Riad to everyone wishing for a stress free stay in this amazing city.

Room Tip: We always try to stay in the Chocolate room if we can. Although all the rooms are excellent

Had a wonderful stay in Riad Saba, we came by car from Portugal and had some difficulty finding it that's why we gave the location only 4 stars,we could have parked much closer (25m) but luckily did not have that much luggage (we left the car in the parking lot and used taxis during our stay)
The Riad is lovingly restored by the owners with the finest furniture and fittings,love those tadelakt walls
The location is otherwise fine with many nice restaurants and boutiques around the corner and close to the Bahia Palace the Museum Dar Si Said, and the Maison Tiskiwin a private museum in the house of a retired Dutch anthropologist.
10 minutes to walk to the Djemaa el Fna for some evening action.
Maria and Jamal gave us a wealth of information and on our leave Maria made us a map to get out of the city to the Taroudannt road which was better than a Google map

I have never experienced such top class level of service in my life. I travel a lot, but the attention to detail at the Riad Saba was phenomenal. Jabrane and his wife Maria were genuinely concerned about our comfort, and gave us lots of tips during our stay.

Spent 4 days at Riad Saba and have only good things to say about it. Staff was friendly, professional and knowledgeable without being intrusive. The location is great right in the middle of the old town and yet the Riad is beautiful and serene.
