Talked about tourists living in crap and not complaining which made me More angry...highly... More

Would definitely recommend -and would stay there again without a doubt!, We got picked up from the airport as promised and with no delays. When we first arrived in the area was raining and all looked a bit grey and moody. We got to the Riad and when we opened the main door we were amazed. It looked stunning, colourful... More

We had a wonderful stay in Abdellatif's riad! He did everything to make our 3-day stay a great experience and he helped us out with planning our trips to discover Marrakech. We felt more than welcome. The room was clean and we had everything we needed and wifi works very well. The riad lies at a ten-minute walk from the... More

We spend last weekend at the Riad Kalinka lotus, with the wonderful host, Abdul, who informed us after the Paris attack the rest of his bookings had been cancelled. What a shame. It meant we got the Riad all to ourselves. It is 100% true to label- the photos represent the rooms well. It doesn't show the stunning roof top... More

We were advised to stay in a Riad and definitely was the best thing we did... The second we arrived to the Riad, Adbelatif was waiting for us with a nice cup of mint tea, the decoration of the Riad is very nice, the lady that was in charge of the breakfast was lovely, we needed to walk about 20mins...
