Got this riad by booking a package (with flight) through lastminute.com. My wife and I went with some friends in Dec 08 and this was our first booking through last minute and it all worked well. We were pleasantly surprised with the Riad. It's a bit far from the main square (15 minute walk) through the souks and it's easy... More

Booked via Travel Republic. The travel agency rep is MTS - rep is called Hammet. nice guy. There are a few trips which you should definately go to. Staff are friendly though yes, as with other reviews - Aziz does ask out right for a tip. This is considered normal - however, none of the other staff asked for tips... More

We arrived by taxi, and the driver did not know where the riad was located. The location is in a maze within the Souk. I would say that you definitely should organise a transfer from the airport as part of a package. The porter 'Aziz' asked for money / tips at every opportunity (help with our bags, fixing leaks in...

Well located Riad .(once you get your bearings) The initial walk to the jemma el fna square is a little bit daunting; the biggest culture shock my partner and I ever had.But the locals are mostly friendly. Do be prepared for a step back in time though as well as a few sorry sights. The Riad itself really is an... More

My Girlfriend booked this short trip at the last minute without us really checking out much about the Riad, we read some reviews on here after booking and the overall impression we got was that it would be an OK Riad, nothing fancy, and some of the reviews we actually thought were very negative. We turned up, wow, after being... More

I booked this Riad with the TUI group online. The first thing that attracted me was the price, £50 per night B&B for the 3 of us. I compared the reviews on TA which were mixed, but I was generally happy with what I read. To start with, I wouldn't recommend this Riad if you are a first time visitor... More

This guest house has lots of character and great location, just minutes away from the hustle and bustle of the main Plaza. The saff were really friendly and helpful - but we couldn't help thinking they were on major kickbacks from the restaurants and Hammam they recommend. They will send you to Chegruni in the Plaza, but Argana restaurant is... More

I am absolutely shocked at some of the comments im reading on here! I stayed at Riad Amsaffah for 1 week in feb 2007, and loved it so much I am returning in a couple of days time! Yes the neighbourhood is very different to what you might find in other more developed countries, but that's not a bad thing!... More

Had a fabulous time experiencing the real Morroco In the riad do not expect hotel accommodation as in Europe they do not do room check but are more than willing to change anything that may need it such as bulbs etc. Staff and sisters both welcoming and...
