“A very nice Riad well situated in the heart Marrackech”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2011

Warm and friendly welcome, the staff will make you feel at home.
They are very available and will be very helpfull to make you find your way in Marrakech area.
The breakfast taken on the rooftop of the Riad is a must.
The rooms are well decorated in the tipical maroccan style.
The riad is ten minutes walk from the famous Jamaa el Fna square.

We've stayed 7 nights at Riad Massiba and enjoyed every minute of it! It is a beautiful riad decorated with great taste by its owner, a lady from France. The riad is composed of 3 rooms, and is therefore considered as a small riad. However, we were lucky enough to have the riad for ourselves for most of the stay. Of course when couple + kids are there it is a bit more noisy, but nothing more than in a home. Beds are maybe the only thing which could be improved, there were a bit hard. Other than that, a delicious breakfast was served to us every morning on the rooftop terrasse by Ahmed and Mina, bedrooms were cleaned up every day and the riad itself is super clean and very quiet compared to the city itself. The riad's location is perfect, 10 min away from Jemaa El Fna. We were really happy with our stay and Vivienne the owner was particularly helpful for planning little excursions for us (to note that she does not speak English but only French, Ahmed speaks however a bit of English).

Stayed for three nights at Riad Massiba with my niece. We had a lovely room (small suite) nicely decorated and very clean.Madame Vivienne, the owner was charming, although our French is poor and her staff were most helpful and extremely courteous. I would recommend this Riad, although small, it is a short walk to the main square and very quiet. I have stayed in a few Riads, but would definitely go back to this one.

This Riad lives up to all the reviews given. 4 of us stayed there for a week from 23rd September to 30th September. When you arrive outside there is no indication of what lies on the other side of that door. It's a calm oasis from the mad world outside. The Riad is in an ideal position just minutes from the main square, though the alleyways can be a little hair raising at times with all the bikes and motorbikes but you can't fault the location. It is clean and has everything you need. We were the only guests so had the place to ourselves and could make ourselves at home, it even has a lovely cat for company. Ahmed and Mina were so helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was wonderful and we would recommend getting Mina to cook for you as we had a lovely meal prepared by her. One tip is to not leave alcohol around as it did have a tendency to evaporate when the Proprietor was in residence! but we could not fault this place and would recommend it 100%

Six of us stayed at this Riad for 3 nights and had a fabulous time in Marrakesh – Vivienne was a charming host and even through we did not speak French we somehow managed to communicate well with assistance from Ahmed.
Ahmed and Mina were wonderful staff and we felt that this was our home from home. Mina cooked the most divine meal for us one evening and breakfasts were fabulous too.
Nothing was ever too much trouble and I would highly recommend this riad to any travellers to Marrakesh.

We really picked a gem with Riad Massiba. Vivienne has put so much time and energy into making the riad into such a beautiful place to stay, and welcomes her guests like you are long-lost friends coming back home. We enjoyed talking to her very much in our broken French. Her "right hand man" Ahmed was a true gentleman. Nothing was too much trouble for him, and he made our two-night stay a truly memorable one. I have no hesitation recommending this riad to anyone visiting Marrakech. It was the real highlight of our time there. (BTW, for those of you with cars, there is an excellent parking facility directly opposite the riad, costing about US$3.50 per day.)

We 4 friends stayed at Riad Massiba and I can't recommend it enough. Vivienne and Ahmed did so much to make our stay enjoyable, nothing was too much to ask - from organising taxis to imprompture dinners, everything was managed with expert care. The big rooms and ambience of this riad made it our favourite in Morocco. Thankyou Vivienne and Ahmed for making our stay in Marrakesh so wonderful.
