“What a great host”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

I had the loveliest time and treatment at Riad Safi. I wanted to say a biiiiiiiig thanks to Louis who was simply the loveliest host ever (no joke).

I was welcomed with a sincere smile everytime I came. I was able to rest very peacefully in this oasis of a riad.
Great place, great relaxation for a very low price.

I arrived at night without having eaten. The owner's wife prepared a tasty special supper for me that included the traditional bean soup. My room was attractively decorated in subtle gray, black and white tones with attention to textures. Other rooms had brighter colors combined tastefully. A breakfast of Moroccan-style crêpes, orange juice, fruit and good coffee was served on the roof terrace, from which there was a view of nearby buildings of the medina and the sea.
I felt quite at home here. Though the dark, narrow streets seemed sinister at first, after being greeted by the beguiling neighbor children and others from the nearby school in their quite good French, the place took on a friendly aura.

The most authentic Riad I have been in Morocco. Jean Michel and Hannan are so welcoming that makes you fell like home! It happens to stay there first time, 4 years ago and it end to be me and my family favorite place for vacation. We have already been back other 4 times. The rooms has a different theme and Jean Michel and Hannan have done a wonderful work to preserve the original structure of the old house. I recommend Safi and this Riad as real Marocco

Rashid made my stay a memorbale one. Although a little difficult to find you are certainly in the cetner of things.

The rooms are full of charm and character although not modern in anyway. As long as you dont expect a 5star modern hotel then you will love it.

Rashid will do everything to make your stay enjoyable including getting his young apprentice to make some amazing food... ye sit really was amazing you dont need to eat anywhere else!

My boyfriend and I stayed here two nights. Usually I just drive through Safi on my way to Essaouaria or Agadir. But this time we decided to check it out, and I'm so glad we did. The riad is centrally located and safe, convenient parking is near by. The rooms each have their own unique style. JM and Rachid were wonderful hosts. I would love to go back.

My girlfriend and I stayed seven night at the Riad Safi. The Riad Safi is located within the Medina. Riad Safi is really an oasis in the abounding, just about medieval environment. The Medina and the Souk shows the original Morocco and not a tourist version. Excellent food, pleasant room in Hotel Riad Safi, you can use the wifi network too. Jean Michel the French owner is very friendly and hospitable. Safi is a good centre for trips. We made excursions to Essaouria, Marrakech, Lalafatna - and Qualidia Beaches and El-Jadida. It worth seeing the local museum, the Ceramic museum in Safi and taste the authentic tajine foods of Chez Hosni.

This Riad was everything we were looking for! The owner was very welcomming, the riad itself had a layd back feel and our room was very nice. It was easy to find and we received a key to the front door to be able to let ourselves back in.
We especially liked the terraced areas and the central location. On the top terrace there is a lovely view, great for watching the sun set. Reccommended!
