“Tucked away from the hustle of Marrakech”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

The hosts Farid and Cristina, were very helpful. We arranged for Farid to meet us at the airport which is well worth while as the riad is a bit hard to find the first time especially as we arrived in the evening so it was dark. It's about a 20 minute walk to the main square but very interesting to stay in an area that isn't all tourist venues.People don't start to pester you to go into their shop until you get near the centre. The Riad itself is nicely restored and furnished. Farid also takes guests on well-priced and informative day trips to the nearby countryside and we had a lovely day in the Ourika valley. Cristina the host is Austrian and provides the most substantial breakfast we had in Morocco, including eggs and cheeses well as the usual fruit juice and selection of breads. Altogether very good value and a bit different. Don't be put off by the duty street outside and the walk to the riad from the city wall. Rubbish lies about everywhere in Morocco but inside the Riad Losra it's all sparkling clean and comfortable. The beds even have European type duvets and the pillows were not the overstuffed ones we found elsewhere.

Comparing to others riads we stay this one is the best. Staff was wery helpful and friendly. Rooms were extreamly clean. Brekfast was good. It's possible to park a car near the riad, not iutside the walls. The only thing-you have to walk 20 min to medina.

Very clean, nice and quiet hotel. The owners (Christine and Farid) - a very nice and friendly people! Help, tell and show what, where, and where to go! Rooms are clean, very nicely decorated. There are only five. Distinguish them by the color design. Breakfast is included in the price! Very delicious and satisfying! Different markets and the central square are a 20-25 minute walk through the old town! We loved staying at this inn! Thank you Christine! She's a wonderful hostess! Vlad and Vita :)

Owner is very kind and accommodating, the place is atmospheric, air conditioning worked well, excellent breakfast, good location on a residential street in the medina away from the touristy areas. We would be happy to stay here again!!

My girlfriend and I stayed here for a week and we very much enjoyed it. The rooms were clean and spacious and the owners were extremely friendly. I'd recommend this place to anybody.

My bf and I stayed here for 3 nights, but we wish it was longer! This riad was a perfect haven from the heat and hurry of Marrakech. It really had it all - beautiful, big rooms with opulent ensuites, air con, rooftop terrace, huge and delicious breakfasts, and the hosts were wonderfully welcoming and helpful. The riad is located only a few metres from one of the babs (gates) leading into the medina, so it was always easy to find our way home again, even at night. I can't recommend this place more - it was a highlight of our 2-month trip through Africa and Europe!

Room Tip: We stayed in the 'blue' room - absolutely beautiful!

Have just returned from a 4 night stay in Marrakesh with my partner and friends. This riad was amazingly peaceful to come back to every night after the busy hustle and bustle of the souks and medina. The overall look of the Riad is very Arabian Nights, with beautiful tiles and moroccan influences everywhere. The Riad is owned by husband and wife Farid and Kirsten. Kirsten is extremely attentive and helpful, on arrival she instantly got us complimentary water and the local favourite 'mint tea'- delicious, very sweet and served in tiny glasses. We were then showed to our rooms, we had booked the Blue and Red Rooms which were beautiful. The 4 poster beds draped in fabric, ornately decorated wardrobes, and beautiful tiled bathrooms. Everything coordinated even our hairdryer and handsoap! They provided fridges, safes and most importantly air conditioning. Ours was unfortunately broken on the first night but Kirsten arranged for it to be fixes asap the next day and provided us with a fan in the mean time. There is a lovely roof top terrace to go relax and enjoy the view. Breakfast is served every morning an is another treat. Boiled eggs, fresh made breads, cheese, jams, yogurts, melon, tea and coffee all delicious and gets u ready for a days sightseeing. Whilst in Marrakech I would highly recommend visiting Jamaa el Fna Square, get lost in the souks, the Marjorelle Gardens, a trip to the atlas mountains, eating tagine and couscous, Bahia Palace, Koranic School and the Museum. All very beautiful and interesting! Beware of locals trying to offer help but then trying to charge you for it. Barter for everything! Especially taxis! My friend had someone try to pit a snake around his head without warning so just be firm and yell NO and they get the message! 'Shooma' also means 'shame on you' if any ladies get unwanted attention and feel uncomfortable. Overall a fantastic holiday
