Riad Kaiss was an excellent place for my daughter and I to stay. The hotel itself is on a quiet side street - an excellent location. The service was outstanding - really took good care of us without being overbearing. Helped us do some trip planning when we wanted help. Our original room wasn't a great set up for my daughter and me, so they switched us to an even better room. I would highly recommend Riad Kaiss for an authentic, but really nice experience.

Thanks Neil. It was a pleasure to have you and your daughter stay with us; and we really appreciate your review. We try to make sure everyone, who stays with us, feel our enthusiasm for Marrakesh (and Morocco) and our care and concern for their well-being. All our rooms are different in every way - size, layout, position in the riad so if we can find the room that suit your needs we certainly will. We are close to all the important sites in Marrakesh but have a nice quiet location. All our best wishes for the future. All the team at Riad Kaiss

I would definitely stay here again! The place has a very serene atmosphere and extremely helpful and friendly staff that goes above and beyond to ensure you are happy. It is located within walking distance of the bustling city, but feels like you are in a secluded tranquil paradise.

Excellent and amazing staff. Rooms and views were faultless. Location was perfect and they assisted us with all our requests. They gave us a upgrade at no cost as they saw my little one (just 1yrs) would love to run around !!! Absolutely amazing would go again in a heart beat and have recommended to my nearest and dearest all of whom have had similar experiences.

This is a lovely quiet riad in the heart of the city. Staff were lovely. Rooms are gorgeous and central courtyard is lovely where you take meals. Evening meals are very tasty. Lamb tagine is especially good. Breakfast could be improved. They are not used to having eggs for breakfast so they don’t know how to cook them. Overall a great place to stay though.

Thank you for your generous review. We humbly apologise for the eggs. We have had an egg 'workshop' since we read your review. It is true eggs are not a big part of breakfast fare here but that is no excuse. We are in the middle of a lot of shopping and restaurants but always serve a lunchtime and night time menu of food in case you have done too much walking, have an early/late flight or just want to rest and enjoy some food and a glass of wine or beer. We also have a hearty breakfast each morning. Marrakesh is an interesting destination. Thanks for coming to stay with us. All the team at Riad Kaiss
