Reviewed March 4, 2013

We were very dubious when we turned up at the Riad & Spa Bahia Salam as it is in the middle of a noisy, dusty street right next to the main square. However, we soon came to appreciate it's handy location, quiet rooms and wonderful masseuses! The staff couldn't have been more helpful and it really is great value for money. They are happy for you to consume your own alcohol on the terrace and provide glasses and snacks with a smile. The rooms aren't spacious but the comfy bed, safe, TV, fridge and lashings of hot water made up for it. Highly recommended.

This hotel is a hidden jewel! It looks like nothing from the outside, but the second you step inside, you are blown away by its beauty! I had a lovely, romantic time there. The rooms are so beautifully and traditionally furnished that I sometimes preferred to stay in bed with my girlfriend than go outside! This is a really beautiful place and the service is great. If I ever go back to Morocco, I know where I'll stay! I highly recommend it.

This a treasure in the heart of Marrakesh! My girlfriend and I had picked this hotel according to its reviews and we knew it would be quite the good time. Yet, our experience has been way more than that! The staff is ever-smiling, welcoming and there to serve you. They respect your privacy, help you as much as they can and provide an amazing service. The hotel is unbelievably close to to everything and is so well centered and so beautifully designed that I like to think of it, at the end of a long, touristic day, as the oasis where I go to rest, and enjoy a good smoke in the Terrace. I am SO glad I chose Riad Bahia Salam!

This is a great hotel/spa located within Medina. From the outside, it is nothing but a door on a bustling street, however once inside you are taken to a whole new world. So relaxing, no street noise, beautiful decor. The rooftop terrace is a great way to end or begin your day in the city. It is approximately 300 meters from the market, 200 meters from palace and Jewish quarter, making it a great location for exploring Marrakech

A very nice, hidden surprise in the heart of Marrakech. Just sit on the roof terrace and listen to the buzz of the Medina around you, Salam provides you a vey cosy hide away and a great service with a smile.

We arrived outside the Riad, wondering if we had made the right decision. On first appearance from the outside, you would be forgiven for entering with just a hint of trepidation.

Once you enter, the place is a little oasis in the madness that we knew Marakech would be. Everywhere is spotless, the floor and walls are decorated with colourfull ceramic mosaics and the sitting areas, of which there are three are very traditional and opulent.

The temperature outside as we arrived, was 24 degrees. Once inside, the courtyard arrangement brought the temperature down to a lovely cool 18 or so. The rooms had air con, but once again, the construction of the Riad keeps the temperature down enough that it was not required.

The Riad is only a slow ten minute walk from the main square. Out of the door, turn left, walk for about 3 or 4 minutes, turn left into the souk and just carry straight on. You will not miss the square!! On the return to the Riad, pop into Kosybar to watch the sun set and the storks nesting. It's tucked away a bit, but worth the effort to find it.

Located a 5 minute walk from Jemaa Al Fna square and across the street from a parking lot, this riad is very well situated. The building itself is absolutely beautiful and our room was well appointed. The restaurant serves tasty and not too expensive Moroccan fare up on the roof terrace with a decent view of the city.
