The standard rooms are small. First room on the left after the first stair is noisy. There is an electric small heating system, not the best if its realy cold. Shower was broken but they fix it straight away. Hot water. Nice view on the mountains from the rooftop. You can arrange tours from here they are fast. Very sweet... More

We had stayed 3 couples, 5 night in this riad. It is very close to Jamaa ul fna and palais Bahia 5 minutes walking. Rooms are clean and traditional. Breakfast is nice. But I'd paid the highest tax in Morocco, that 2,5 € per person, per night and they didn't give invoice. We had stayed in riads, dars and hotels... More

At first, It isn't easy to find, but a landmark that taxi drivers know is Hôpital Mokha. It's as far as any vehicle can go; beyond that, you walk another 100m more into narrow lanes to get to Balkisse's... More

Stayed here with the entire family, occupying 4 of the 8 rooms. The riad was managed by a small friendly group of people, responsible for the wellbeing of all guests. Mo made sure we got all the information we needed and was always at our service, a truly superb host. The location is perfect, literally five minute walk from the... More

I really loved Riad Balkisse because I felt like at my home. The structure is small and very familiar. The roof terrace is wonderful to enjoy relaxing moments and to admire Marrakech during the sunset (unique experience)! My room was comfortable and furnished in a very simple style, like the real moroccan style (not the kitch tourist style!). The location... More
