“It felt like visiting extended family back at home, only it was my first time in the country!”
Reviewed May 7, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Riad Laksiba offered more than my expectations and I will gladly go back to stay there and experience Marrakkech with a local's perspective. Its cozy and homey with comfortable chambers, a lovely central courtyard where we sat with our feet dipped in the mini-pool, and a roof with deckchairs for relaxing the cool evening breeze. Our hosts were very welcoming, always cheerful and friendly and took care of us with personal attention to detail such as restaurants for an authentic local experience to bargaining with taxi drivers on our behalf. Highly recommended!

“Students Abroad”
Reviewed May 4, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

While my friends and I were traveling abroad we didn't have access to internet, only an email account. While this could have been frustrating and time consuming, Simon's great communication skills made it painless for us. He was always quick and thorough in his responses making sure all questions were answered and requests were accommodated. Not only was the Riad an amazing place to stay but Simon also arranged a camel trek for us. Our experience in Marrakesh was so incredible because we were able to come back to this place every night... we hardly wanted to leave. The staff was always helpful with directions and recommendations. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay during our travels!

“A wonderful time”
Reviewed April 27, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Riad Laksiba and the excellent staff (Adil, Abdol and Hamid and the fantastic lady chefs) were the most delightful and caring hosts. We had a really excellent time and are definitely planning a return trip to explore Morocco even further using here as a base. M & J Parry

“The perfect base for an authentic,relaxing and hospitable Marrakesh experience”
Reviewed April 26, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We were fortunate in stumbling across the Riad Laksiba when searching for a base in Marrakesh for our Silver Wedding celebrations. The location of the Riad is a bonus because it is easily accessible from a nearby gate in the city walls which is a real plus for travel by taxi. That said we mostly walked everywhere and although the Riad is situated in a quiet backwater within a few seconds you are right into the busy street life of this vibrant city.We soon felt very 'at home' within the Riad and it's immediate neighborhood

Every arrangement that was made by the staff at Riad Laksiba was spot on.From the first airport pick up to the final transfer and everything in between was perfectly arranged and tailored to our wishes. We were grateful for the careful and detailed advice that we were offered and the appreciation of our desires to experience the country in our own way. We learned to trust their information and arrangements completely.

I can wholeheartedly recommend the Riad Laksiba for seasoned travelers and those like us that are a bit out of practice! We had a fabulous time. Thank you

“Manager Abdelhamid Bousaadi absolutely wonderful”
Reviewed April 23, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

person found this review helpful

We booked a camel trek using the Riad Laksiba that our friends were staying out. We were working with Abdelhamid Bousaadi the manager at the Riad. I can not begin to described how amazingly helpful he was with everything we wanted to do. He arranged a place for the additional travelers to stay, he found an amazing car service and arranged for our group to be picked up in Casablanca and delivered to the Riad in Marrakech, he arranged everything we needed for the camel trek including a place to leave our belongings and pick up and drop off issues. Assisted with any taxi or transfers we needed. He even informed us of all the local attractions and interests and how to get there and how much it would cost…including emailing maps that he drew on to show us the best routes. Thanks to him, we were able to have a safe and easy way to enjoy Marrakech and beyond. He responded to all emails timely and promptly and resolved any and all issues we had. When we needed to speak on the phone his English was perfect so I could totally understand everything. I have done a tremendous amount of traveling and working with hotels, tour guides, etc but I have never found anyone so willing to help and so diligent and resourceful as Abdelhamid Bousaadi. Riad Laksiba is so lucky to have him and it will make your stay at this Riad absolutely amazing.

“Wonderful location in the Medina at Marrakech”
Reviewed April 11, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We stayed at Riad Laksiba with friends and family for a 50th birthday celebration and had a great time. Located in a quiet part of the Medina on the southern edge, the Riad is a 15 minute gentle stroll through the chaotic but safe streets of Marrakech. Just watch out for the cyclists, motorcyclists etc flying past.

Great staff who could not do enough for us in Abdelhamid, Adil and Abdul, together with the female staff whose names we regrettably never asked.

The Riad has a central lounge area open to the sky. When it rains, the staff cover the roof opening to keep it dry. The rooms were excellent, each en-suite and spacious.

Highly recommended!

“still the best riad;-)”
Reviewed April 3, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

people found this review helpful

Well I have to confess to staying here several times before, (see reviews) but I still wish to come back despite there being approx 1000+ riads in the city. Why? firstly, the district Kasbah is residential and perfectly safe for tourists to wander around even late at night, its a brisk 10 minute walk up to the Souks and Jemma el Fna (the big square) but without the madness, crush of bodies, and constant touting associated with Uptown. Plus you dont need a taxi, so its nice to walk off dinner and take a leisurely stroll home. Ladies, bring trainers and flats..its all cobbled streets and you will literally be on your feet all day sightseeing.

Transfers to and from the airport in big jeeps, and proximity to the main road are a HUGE bonus, since in the medina you will be wheeling your luggage on cobbled pedestrian streets, its good to make the trek as short as possible ;-) Riads in the medina being traditional townhouses converted into guest houses, dont have all the mod cons, so you need to accept no UK TV, UK plumbing etc but just have the amazing "local" experience. After all if you want 5 star room service and pools, then stay outside of the city in Palmerie and pay 000s for the experience.

Finally the level of personal service just exceeds other Riads I have stayed in, plus a consideration for their guests. If you wish to be left alone to read, thats fine, if you want to just chill with your friends, thats also fine, but should you wish to chat about meaning of life with the guys no problem either. The 2 guys working at Laksiba are university educated fluent english speakers, and an encyclopaedic knowledge of where to go, and can accomodate all ideas and price ranges. Just tell them what you want and the level of luxury and when you return they will have it all organised to the best of their ability. We had days up in the Atlas mountains, camel trek in the desert, Lunch at posh hotels in country etc But please remember that this is Morocco not Germany sometimes its just not possible to have exactly what you want/when you want, there's a certain amount of "going with the flow" required here.

The ladies cook great breakfast and can provide home cooked evening meals if you like, they clean and change towels daily.

All in all, I love it here, it feels like coming "home" after the end of a long day and being offered a cup of a mint tea and putting my feet up on the sofa… bliss… ha ha.. also we had wine and beer in the fridge;-)
