“A perfect gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

Riad Kaiss is a lovely Hotel in a traditional Moroccan building in the old quarter full of cool tile, shade trees, fountains and winding staircases-absolutely stunning. The staff were fantastic and so was the food. All the rooms were absolutely gorgeous. I would recommended this delightful oasis to anyone planning a trip to Marrakesh

Riad Kaiss is a beautiful hotel tucked away from the hussle and bustle of the souks. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly and they made sure I had everything I needed.I would definitely recommend staying here if you want an authentic experience of a riad, I can't wait to go back again!

The Riad Kaiss is beautiful and has miraculously kept the charm that much of the old town has lost since I last visited Marrakech 20 years ago. On arrival one is transported back in time, surrounded by bird song, beautiful authentique architecture and able to completely escape the hustle and bustle of the city outside its walls. The manager Hyat is extremely kind, concerned with the welfare of her guests within the riad and outside and went out of her way to make my and my 15 year old daughter's stay as wonderful as possible. Despite it being Ramadan, we had our meals when we wanted and ate extremely well at breakfast, tea time and dinner. All of the staff are smiley and try their very best. In fact our stay felt more like spending a few days with a very friendly family than staying at a hotel.
If you want authenticity, kindness and a romantic setting rather than a hotel with lots offacilities then you will find this riad is a very precious jewel. Thank you for making or trip last week so special.

Room Tip: All rooms are lovely and have their own charm

This Riad tucked away from the main square really was an oasis for my husband and I. We stayed here for my 40th Birthday and it was the first holiday in a long time without our children - it did not disappoint. The initial responses from the staff is email after we booked were prompt and friendly. the welcome was also friendly but no over the top. We got great advice on where to visit and restaurants to eat at. I had a traditional massage treatment which was amazing. We had breakfast on the rooftop most mornings. We saw other guests but it never felt busy, just relaxing - It was perfect. Hayat (not sure of the spelling) was the manager and she was amazing, really friendly and efficient. I would recommend this Riad to anyone who wants to get anyway and relax for a while but be close to great bar and restaurants too!

Riad Kaiss is delightful and made more so by the charming Hayat and her staff, for whom nothing is too much trouble. Kaiss has a very large courtyard to relax and eat in, the Riad still has many original features and maintains the feel of an ancient place, but is comfortable. We had a suite which was a bedroom and large terrace, we ate breakfast here or at the highest point where you can look across the Marrakech skyline. We also ate dinner in, it was as good as the best restaurants in the town. Position is great, 10 minutes walk to the Jumna El fna and close to the souks. We've stayed in many Riads, Kaiss and dar la Cigognes are two of the very best.

Room Tip: Suites have their own private terrace

Small number of rooms with attentive but unobtrusive staff. Great location within walking distance of anything in the medina, and a short cab ride to the Marjorelle Garden.

Hayat took excellent care of us, providing directions, letting us know what things should cost and making reservations on our behalf.

My favourite part of the day was breakfast in the garden courtyard. It's incedibly peaceful with the only noise coming from the birds singing in the trees above. There is a large selection of pastries and breads along with fresh fruit, yogurt, fresh orange juice and Nespresso, followed by eggs if you want.

Riad Kaiss was such a pleasure to stay at, we cannot say enough about it! From the very nice welcome and tour to the wonderful service for any request we had, we felt very well treated! The riad is beautiful...every corner has something to see. After dark, we enjoyed sitting out in the courtyard while they played beautiful music, reminding one of Arabian nights! We enjoyed a wonderful hammam treatment and booked a cooking class and day trip, all of which were well worth it. I would recommend this Riad to everyone!
