“A lovely break.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

Compact and clean room, spotless bed linen, clean towels every day, plenty of hot water and good breakfast taken on the roof terrace. Located within easy walk to Souks and main square. Owner very helpful with advice both on arrival and during stay and also booked us an excellent day trip. Very friendly, this Riad was a good choice and has a nice relaxing ambience, and we really enjoyed our stay. Be sure to ask to eat in at least once for an excellent value for money meal nicely served - the best meal we had !!.

Much of the beauty of Marocco comes from the fact, that it is not taken over by big companies, chains and business-ideals. Riad Sacr is a good example of this. It is owned and run by a lively person, not by a standardized company. THE person here is called Kenza. She is the sovereign monarch of her kingdom, or rather, queendom. She is simply great, and so is the Riad. We are two friends, and stayed for a few days. Neither of us can think of any complaints. Location is very good, rooms are beautiful (we stayed in the yellow one), food is good and Kenza goes out of her way to help you. We highly recommend!

Greetings to Kenza & everyone at Riad Sacr!

Picked up by taxi arranged by e mail with Riad-this was excellent as linked up to local porter who took us through a maze of alleys to get to the Riad-excellent accommodation-v welcoming-mint tea-on arrival-big breakfast on roof terrace.Close to central square-so great location. Host also took us to Grand Taxi area and negociated a taxi to the mountains.
Would certainly stay here again

Room Tip: The first floor room we had the Blue room-very nice decor

First of all, this Riad would be initially tricky to find if you are arranging your own transport. However Ahmed at the Riad kindly arranged taxi transfers for us which was really very helpful. It's in a great location, tucked away a few minutes walk from the souks and the square.

The riad is beautifully decorated in traditional style and the room we stayed in, Rouge, was small but clean with lovely decor - tadelakt tile and lovely soft furnishing. There was a fridge, plenty of hot water and an efficient little heater for the chillier nights.

Breakfast is taken on the roof terrace and is traditional Moroccan crepes or breads with honey and jam and Kenza makes a great mint tea! We also ate at the riad on one evening which was delicious (thanks to Kenza's mum!) and Kenza made a huge effort to dress the room with candles and created a gorgeous atmosphere.

They have a super-friendly cat, Mimi, as I am a cat lover I was happy to fuss over her!

Kenza was also able to get us a great deal on a day trip to the Ourika Valley, which was useful and good to get out of the craziness of the city for a day!

If I could have changed one thing I'd magically be able to speak French but this was my own failing and in no way a reflection on the lovely team at the riad!

Superb value for genuinely lovely service in a good location. Thank You!

Room Tip: We were in the Rouge room; the upstairs rooms may be slightly quieter.

If you want to stay close to everything in the old town, in beautiful surroundings, eat lovely breakfast with a local touch and all this to a good price - Riad Sacr is the best choice. The host Kenza really cares about her guests and we felt like a part of a big family. All our love to Kenza & her family!

We booked 3 days, but stayed 8 days. This place feels like home from the moment you arrive!
Kenza and her family will do everything to make you feel at home in the riad and in Marrakech. Rooms were very nice decorated, and if we wanted to eat in the riad we just asked in the morning and Youssef would make us a perfect dinner. If you want to drink beer or wine, just ask and they would go and buy it. The riad is located in the middle of the medina, so everything is really close, we never used a taxi. The riad is nice and quiet, so you don't hear a lot of noise in the night time. We highly recommend this place and if we were to go back, we would definitly stay here. Thank you Kenza and family for making our stay so special!
