“Super quiet,clean comfortable and wonderfully renovated Riad”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

We looked at 15 or so Riads in Marrakech medina and Swaka was by far the most beautifully renovated. Rooms are larger than most Riads and are comfortably furnished with lovely decor. All have been recently restored. Area is super quiet (no motorbikes!). Fatima and Walter are a friendly couple who treat staff and guests like family. Charming stay

It is true that the Riad is in a quiet neighborhood at the same time very close to the souks.

Walter and Fatty, as well as their staff, showed us a great Moroccan welcome from the moment we entered their peaceful Riad. Always willing to answer all of our needs, they even took from their personal time to bring us shopping for mosaic tables which are manufactured on the outskirts of the city. Great times, great people, an easy choice!
