My family and I loved this place. The hosts really took care of us, especially my kids. We had the pool to ourselves which the kids really enjoyed and the dinner was traditional moroccan food. Delicious! When you get to Medina, you'll have to navigate your way down a few side streets before you reach the hotel, or have one of the guys cart your belongings for you. Remember they expect a tip so have small notes ready. After a couple of days we were able to navigate quite easily once we memorized the route. On our last day, the hotel manager booked our taxi for us and waited with us until we were safe in the taxi. Just a reminder there's also a tourism tax, which we paid at the hotel on our last day. One of the locals told us to avoid the main square during the day and night, especially with our young kids so we made sure to stay away from it. Also bear in mind everyone is trying to sell you something or guide you and give you directions, it's OK to say 'NO thank you, we're not interested'. Generally people were friendly and helpful. The holiday was fine, not our best as lot's of mopeds everywhere so be careful while walking and also men staring at women but in this case my 6 year old to. She found the staring and occasional chat so uncomfortable she did not want to go out on the last day, just something to be aware of. One of our favourite moments was buying spices. The shopkeeper was so welcoming and kept on giving us free things. Definitely worth trying out a few souks before buying.

We are sadly only staying 3 nights, but have picked a great Riad! Staff have been extremely helpful and so obliging. Any queries have been responded to immediately. Riad could not be better placed. So close to great restaurants, the square and the souks. It's hot, but there's a lovely plunge pool on the rooftop. Very private. Breakfast is sweet foods and sets you up ready for the day. Dont be put off by initial approach to Riad, it's all part of the old town, interwoven alleyways. Terrace des epices is a fabulous restaurant for location and atmosphere, but is quite expensive. Worth it though! Cafs Arabbe, for a drink, or food, but beware service can be slow. I will 100% be back❤ Susan and John

We could not fault our stay at Riad Safar. Hamid came to collect us from a drop off point - we would have definitely not found the Riad on our own and we were welcomed with tea and coffee in a beautiful setting. The Riad is peaceful and in a great location, room was beautifully decorated and clean, and the staff was very helpful and friendly. Our flight wasn’t until late at night and we were able to leave our bags in the Riad and even got to relax and have some mint tea when we went back to collect our bags. As other reviewers have said the staff doesn’t speak English but that was not a barrier for us to communicate effectively. Breakfast was lovely but mostly sweet things - which my partner loved but my taste is more for savoury and that is the only criticism of the place. Would definitely go back and recommend this place for a great stay in Marrakech.

The room we stayed in was extroidinary beautiful. Like, a little cupboard that held our extra bedding was more beautiful than anything I have in my home. The rooftop is higher than surrounding buildings so you can get a decent view of the city. We stayed at a nearby riad later in our trip without as high a roof, and all we could see was sky, satellite receivers, and the sides of other riads. We ate dinner there too (lemon chicken tagine) and it was excellent.

We stayed 3 nights at Riad Safar with our two children aged 10 and 11. The location is excellent for exploring the Medina, with the closest gate and vehicle access just 5 minutes away at Bab Doukala. From the riad it is a 10 minute easy walk to the square. Our room was lovely, very clean and comfortable. The staff are very helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. We were even able to have a log fire in our room in the evenings as February nights are cold in Marrakech. Whilst there is no room service, the staff were happy to provide tea and coffee when we wanted. There is an option to eat dinner in the riad, although you need to let the team know by midday so they can go out and purchase ingredients. The meal we had was exceptional. The breakfasts were also very good. For first time Moroccan visitors you may like to know that breakfast is lots of mint tea and bread products. There is a small plunge pool on the roof terrace, beautiful but a bit cold to use in February. Just a couple of points to bear in mind, the staff do not speak English, so bring a French or Arabic phrase book. Terrasse des Epices restaurant is less than 5 minute walk from the riad - very good for an evening meal but expect to pay a bit more than you would in the Medina.
