The customer service was superb! I've never stayed at a hotel where customer service was so phenomenal! We were treated like distinguished guests! The food was delicious and prepared fresh daily. They booked all of our excursions there at the hotel for us and they were al inexpensive. The ambiance, decorations were all Moroccan styled/based. There are only six rooms... More

My wife and I stayed 3 nights on a short break. Road Altair is within east walking distance of the Medina and the souks. The accommodation and service were excellent, the Manager, Abdul, could not have been more friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and we could choose where to eat, either in the downstairs area, or on one... More

For context, I travel quite a bit. I hate holidays where you just sit in the hotel and hide from the surrounding town. I never eat in hotel restaurants more than once per stay. Here, I stayed in the hotel for two days without batting an eyelid. It's so quiet and relaxing and just *nice* that it's easy to lose... More

My friends and I enjoyed our stay at the Riad Altair. Quiet, comfortable, and relaxing. The staff was very accommodating and extremely professional. We were able to receive some of the best tour guides which showed us the best attractions away from the 'touristy' areas. Thank you Yassine for your patience with a tired crew who arrived late at night... More

My wife and I enjoyed the stay at The Riad Altair; the staff was polite, knowledgeable and present when needed. The atmosphere was quiet and peaceful,and we har 3 relaxing days in comfort. As the Riad is close to the Mosque Bab Doukkala, you could hear the calls for prayer, however this is part of the cultural experience in Marrakech.... More

An amazing Riad, nestled in the centre of Marrakech within 10 minutes walk of the square and some of the main attractions. Really quiet, with fabulous service and seclusion, it's a really charming place and you couldn't be made to feel more welcome. Food is excellent and the sun terrace is a great retreat from the busy centre when you... More

This is a perfect riad for exploring Marrakech. It is very convenient, the rooms are comfortable and the team there - led by Abdel - cannot do too much for you. We had dinner at the Riad on the first night. It was great but I would also recommend that you explore many of the excellent dining choices nearby. Breakfast... More

We had four great nights here, booked through British Airways. Ideal location with an easy stroll to the square, the New Town and many of the main sights. We enjoyed two really good meals in the Riad and Abdel, Yassine and the ladies were absolutely brilliant throughout and couldn't do enough to help. Would recommend dropping into the stylish La...
