Hi, I have visited Marrakech for 6 days in total and stayed at Riad Bahia the whole time. Before arriving, I have read multiple reviews of the place and was a bit scared of what is to come. Once we have arrived, our host Medhi, welcomed us into his home. The whole time, he has helped us with any questions about the city and always explained to us where and what to do, to not be scammed or ripped off in regards to pricing of items we wanted to purchase. Medhi has provided us with all the trips for a very good price, these also being with pick-up from the Riad and drop-off right back. The room was very nice and clean. You need to take in consideration that this is not a hotel, but someones home. Staying in a Riad is bringing you closer to the culture in Marrakech and how people lived for many years before. The whole Riad is very cosy and welcoming, as even Medhi is saying "Feel like home!" If you have the chance to stay here, maybe you have the chance to also listen to Medhi play guitar, you will get chicken skin. Besides all, I have also made a friend in Marrakech. Hope you enjoy Riad Bahia!

At the Riad Bahia I made huge allowances for Cultural differences and the fact that I was staying in someones home. The place is very run down compared to the pictures on the web site, housekeeping is very very poor. We had paid room only in advance, I knew our plane landed at 9pm so phoned the day before to advise of our late arrival time. We arrived at 9.45pm straight from the airport. The Taxi had great difficulty finding the Riad Bahia taking us first to the Riad Bahia Salam. We did not get offered any refreshment on arrival nor was any form of food or beverage available to purchase, I found this a poor sort of reception as they knew we were arriving late and claim on their site to have a restaurant among other things. The area is a bit run down and on the outskirts so we did not feel comfortable about going out looking for food. We were given a bottle of water with the managements compliments. There is a glass fronted cooler cabinet in the dining area but it is empty and unplugged. We requested breakfast for the following morning, due to some misunderstanding when we went out for it we were told we hadn't ordered it and had to pay in advance then wait 30 mins whilst the owner went to buy ingredients. The food was passable. Our room was directly off the dining area, we found this concept very disconcerting, for a number reasons (do you really want to be in bed or worse still the bathroom with a window opening six feet from someone eating their meal?) There is no room cleaning even tho we left the door unlocked every day for a couple of hours whilst we sat on the terrace. We used to empty our own bin putting the rubbish in to a bin in the dining area, however this was only emptied once in the 6 nights we stayed. We were not offered clean towels or bedding nor was our comfort ever inquired after. The bedding and towels were clean but worn and of poor quality The manager although initially pleasant (if somewhat over familiar) became more insolent and moody as the days went past. There was no access to a kettle or fridge, you could buy hot drinks at meal times, but not after 10pm, my companion asked to buy a cola one evening but no soft drinks of any sort were available so we had to bring in our own and bottled water. We stayed in the riad as little as possible in daytime as we felt very uncomfortable the manager seems to use the public seating area as his lounge /office and the one and only time we tried to sit in it he asked us to move. The only TV is in the dining room and the manager controls this setting program and sound. We did ask at the second and last breakfast we stayed for if the sound could be turned down. We were told no the TV was not for our benefit but to alert people that it was breakfast time. I could go on listing incidents but dont want to bore you. We had booked and paid for 7 nights after 6 the manager told us our stay was over and we needed to leave. Enough was enough and we left, We found another Riad for the final night with the help of a waiter at the cafe where we had eaten most days. This Riad was charming clean in a much better area with friendly staff, who could not do enough for us. We had access to a kitchen and the breakfasts were excellent. All for the same price as Riad Bahia. It made us realize just how AWFUL the Riad Bahia had been, The people of Marrakesh on the whole are friendly and helpful taking pride in making you welcome in their Riads.. I have traveled extensively, stayed in everything from 5 star hotels to hostels Riad Bahia is the WORST place I have ever stayed, I cannot honestly recommend staying there to anyone. Maybe if your backpacking and need to stay one night if you cant find anywhere else its safer than sleeping on the streets,

Terrible hotel. Bad smell, dirty, old, stuffy. Breakfast was supposed to be from nine but the host arrived an hour late. And wasn’t exactly polite either. Well at least we took a walk through the Israeli cemetery next door. Big disappointment and not recommended. There are two other hotels of the same name around the corner so I suppose this guy just takes advantage of that. STAY AWAY!

I have booked this location by mistake, as I was thinking I was gonna stay in other Riad with very simmilar name. First warning alert beeped at the airport, as the owner agreed he would manage transfer. But guess what, no one came...So i got to this place, where was confused old lady speaking no english apparently not expecting us. Surrounding of this place is just horrific! Feels so unsafe and dangerous. Inside there is huge smell and the lobby doesnt look like on pictures. I wanted to cancel the housing but the guy who claimed to be owner held our passports and didnt want to give em back to us unless I pay for the whole stay..which is ridiculous maybe its also policy on hotels.com but I have never encountered with such behaviour and service. Place just doesnt feel right, as what I know they also charge you for breakfast, so the price is not such a bargain as it looks..So i paid 130 euro for nothing and left to other riad with very similar name but completely different level for same price..Worst experience ever, if this guy wants to do a business he should visit Riad bahiasalam and see how the business should be done...

If you enjoy bird droppings inside hotels (on the curtains inside the "atrium"), a rude owner, and an average of a 5' - 10' wait for a taxi each time you step out, it's the place to be. My partner got to the hotel a few hours before me, and the owner greeted me with a "your friend is really nice, she got prepared for you, she's really beautiful (wink wink wink)". Two days later, after having missed the breakfast closing time, the owner asks me, when he sees me: "what time is it?" (i am puzzled). "What time is it?", so I look at my watch and answer "11am". He then asks "Well???". Well what? ... And he starts ranting about the breakfast being served until 10:30am, and that I should have read the website to know. (of course it's more important to drewl on customers' partners than to give out that kind of information). Later, trying to get back in the hotel after a visit in the city, the key wouldn't get in the lock of the main door. Had to ring. Owner comes and opens the door, and I explain. He looks at the lock and implies that I broke it. And start explaining how to use a key. Oh Please! Next day, we're on time for breakfast, the owner sees us, comes to our table, point a finger to his watch and gives us a "slow clap"... That's the kind of service you'll get. I had paid for a full week, and actually I ended up looking for another hotel, and leaving early. The owner's only remark was that no refund was possible. Couldn't care less. Just wanted out. (and btw, wifi's so weak it was impossible to book another hotel from our room, had to go to a restaurant to have a proper internet link).
