Sorry Youssef this a bit late. The raid is in a very quiet area , you feel like your in a different world after you leave the Medina. It's a short walk to the main square. Youssef is most helpful arranging trips and taxis.breakfast was excellent, the raid was very clean and lovely decorated. The evening meals were wonderful 18euro... More

Myself and 3 friends stayed at Dar Massai for 3 nights sharing 2 twin rooms. We could not have felt more welcome or been looked after so well by Yūsuf and his staff. Rooms were very clean and beds were lovely and comfortable, the breakfast was very nice. The Riad is very near a market but the amazing thing was the... More

Traveled with three friends, out stay here could not have been better the staff and especially Youssef were brilliant, could not fault their hospitality. If you are going to Marrakesh definitely stay here you would not be looked after better in a five star hotel. Excellent, could not recommend them highly enough. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

The photos of this Riad on the website are true to form, the Riad is beautifully decorated. Youssef the manager met us where the taxi dropped us off, as the Riad was a bit tricky to find through the market. The first night we had dinner at the Riad, which was delicious, although a tad pricey compared to eating out.... More

We found this riad on trip advisor and again, were not disappointed in the recommendation. Reasonably priced, well located about 10-15 minutes from the square, and very friendly and helpful staff. The room was small, as they tend to be in the riads, but there were plenty of common spaces available. The hosts met us at the gate to walk... More

I needed to overnight in Marrakesh for an early flight. This riad is wrongly positioned on google maps as it in the medina and not near airport as i required. Youseff was very attentive with first aid on my cut thumb. He is from south east morrocco. Worth talking to. The riad is French owned. I found her not interested... More

I stayed at the riad for 5 nights with friends and absolutely loved it. The riad is beautifully decorated and very traditional. The staff there are so welcoming and friendly. There were days we needed breakfast extra early and they delivered and breakfast is definitely a must, so many different options and tasty. We always had breakfast at the terrace... More

We stayed for a long weekend at the beginning of March. Youssef contacted us soon after booking and organised a taxi pick up at the airport for a fixed fee (€15 each way). We also chose to have a meal in the Riad (guesthouse) on our first night and it was faultless, but the volume of food was way more... More
