Even as you transfer from the airport you get a sense of the chaos and noise that characterises the Medina in Marrakech, but the moment you are met and taken through the back alleys to the Riad Altair you are in another world. The Riad is an oasis of calm - all noise, including the ubiquitous mopeds, was left behind...

Spent 3 night at Riad Altair and had a very peaceful and tranquil stay. The staff where extremely helpful when ever I sought them out. The location of the Riad is very convenient for anyone on a short or long stay. It's very close to the Souks and other popular sights. You'll hardly need to fetch a taxi to see...

This is a Riad with few rooms which adds to the very homely feel. There is a lovely roof top with a view of the Medina, the new city and also the Atlas mountains, perfect for relaxing after a hectic day. The location next to one of the oldest mosques in the Medina, is helpful for navigation when returning back...

I had a few days spare and itchy feet. Marrakech had always beckoned but I had never been before. I booked through British Airways so was hoping that this riad and its area would live up to expectations. I struggled to find a taxi at the airport, it's a scrum with everyone shouting. Finally I got one (half the original...

I booked Riad Altair on the BA website. The staff were brilliant to the extent that Abdel ( the manager) helped me book a last minuet trip to the Atlas Mountains that really enhanced my trip. Breakfast offered a good choice and was brought out whenever you were ready. The Riad itself was very well kept and offered a number...

Marrakesh itself did not suit us at all, but the Riad Altair was excellent - a quiet oasis in a busy and sometimes not very friendly town. The staff were very professional and friendly and the food was excellent - we ate there each evening, initially to avoid the hassle of finding somewhere in the Medina, but then for the...

I would like to Thank Abdel, Yasin and the whole staff at Raid Altair for their welcoming and kind hospitality. Although our stay was short we felt at home in your hotel and cannot express our gratitude enough. We hope to join you again in the future if Allah wills.

To get straight to the point Marrakech wasn't for us, however, this wonderful Riad on the north west corner of the Medina provided nothing but professionalism, warmth, peace and hospitality we craved after braving those crazy streets. Just six rooms, all spacious, cool and beautifully decorated, the Riad is perfectly placed for dashes in to the souks or a stroll...

We had a superior room, on the ground floor (Altair), the decor was simple and the bed really comfortable (if you like a hard mattress, which I swear by!). Because it is a Riad, if you have a room on the ground floor it means that you are next door to the patio/breakfast/dinner area, which is very handy but also...

My family and I spent a fabulous four nights at the Riad Altair as we savoured the sights and sounds of Marrakech. We based our choice on previous Trip Advisor comments and were not disappointed. All the booking procedures were handled professionally by Abdel, who also arranged for a car to pick us up at the airport (highly recommended), as...
