Our experience was great. The manager was super helpful and interested, what is an important thing in marrakech. Also the people working there were very kind. It's good to have a dinner there at the rooftop, they cook very well. The riad is very well decorated, with contemporary moroccan style and is very comfortable. We just love the experience.

Riad Safa is just the experience we were hoping for while we spent 7 days exploring Marrakech over the Easter break. The Riad is beautiful - white, crisp, clean walls, ornate wood finishes, a blossoming orange tree, and lots of comfy places to sit and read, perfect location within the medina. Francoise and the staff took such good care of...

The website doesn't do justice to this lovely little Riad. Located right in the heart of the walled city, you will find yourself navigating the labyrinth of tiny streets as you arrive and leave for the day. Francoise is the perfect host, providing everything needed to make the most of your stay. If you don't travel light, I would suggest...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome at Riad Safa, a true haven of peace in the exciting Medina of Marrakesh.Riad Safa is located in one of the last authentic parts of the old city (medina), with some of the major cultural institutions just around the corner, and ten minutes by foot from the famous Jemaa el Fna square.Safa means serenity or pureness in Arabic, and it is our aim to provide you with a feeling of pure wellness during the longer or shorter time you stay with us. The atmosphere therefore, is very quiet. Even at the moments that the Imam of the neighbouring Mosque spreads his prayers over us; then you feel the mistery of the East and the presence of the languorous city.We speak English, French and Dutch and we love to help with everything you would want to be assisted with; whether it is a transfer from or to the airport, the booking of an excursion, or to have you accompanied safely home through the myriad of narrow alleys by our helpfull staff, after a 1001-night dinner in the medina.We want you to feel comfortable, and at home with us.Affordable luxury, that is what we want to offer you.Marrakesh is a bustling and buzzy city, so it is nice to know that after a tiring day of shopping in the souks (covered markets) or a visit to one of the palaces, you can immerse yourself in the lovely quiet of our Riad, and relax in one of the intimate "salons" or, during spring and summer, cool down at the small rooftop pool with a dewy glass.At night we offer a delicious "table d'hotes" in a romantic setting on the roofterrace, or indoors, just as you prefer.In-house hammam & wellness • we have a small hammam on the rooftopterrace, which you can book• on demand we can arrange for scrubs, massage, facials, pedicure and manicure. ... more   less
