Just got back from my second visit to Marrakech and Riad Kaiss – it felt like coming home. An oasis in the Medina. The rooms are all beautiful, individual and comfortable. The courtyard is peaceful and vibrant with color. When you arrive at the riad you are welcomed by friendly staff and served mint tea and homemade cookies. Hayat, the... More

After a long trip from Southern Morocco, it was a joy to find this enchanting Ryad, greeted with a wonderful garden & charming receptionist. We enjoyed the roof walk, the Muslim Daily prayer & relaxing but private roof pool For all the beauty & charm of this lovely riad, a more purpose built hotel deserves this kind of tariff, and...

Our best recommendations for this ultimate adorable Riad in the center of Marrakesh. The Riad is really fantastic – an experience of beautiful décor, relaxation and service. It has great rooms, adorable courtyards and an amazing roof terrace with a stunning view. Classic Marrakesh style when it is best. The hosts Hayat and Hajiba are very kind and provide you... More

Myself and my partner stayed in the Riad Kaiss for 5 nights and would thoroughly recommend it. We were keen to visit Marrakech but were also looking for a relaxing holiday, this isn't the easiest to find in Marrakech! The Riad was the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the busy medina. We booked the Kaiss Suite as... More

We had a reasonably good stay here, but probably felt overall we could have found somewhere with better customer service and more of a sense of luxury given the fairly steep prices: * the staff were friendly enough, but weren't particularly attentive - there's no reception desk, only an office (often empty), so often had to ask kitchen staff to...

From the moment of booking our stay at Riad Kaiss, we found not only did everything run smoothly, from the driver picking us up from the airport, to the day we left, but Hayat and her team were truly outstanding. We were greeted very warmly on our arrival, (fairly late in the evening), our luggage taken care of, we were... More

This riad is in the southern part of the medina. It is done out so authentically in a Moroccan style. There are only 9 bedrooms so you are assured of a professional and personal service. It is well placed for both the centre of Marrakech and also the sights on the south side, perfect. Once you're inside the walls the... More

From start to finish we had a lovely stay at the oasis of calm that is Riad Kaiss. Staff were attentive, very welcoming and friendly - and nothing was too much trouble.

After a rather long journey I arrived at Riad Kaiss to be greeted warmly by the beautiful Hayat and Team. Given a wonderful green tea to warm me up and allow me to soak up the wonderful architecture and inner courtyard/gardens. The courtyard is intricately designed in the traditional Moroccan style mixed with the magic and flair of French designer... More

I can't imagine a more beautiful or charming place to stay in Marrakech. The riad is an oasis of calm amid the busy streets of the Medina.
