Arrived in the dead of night after having our luggage lost, everyone was very helpful. We stayed for a week in February 2012, the riad is in a great location for the souks, the decor throughout is lovely, plenty of places to sit and relax, good but basic roof terrace for sunbathing. When we were there the weather was too cold to go in the small pool but it would be great for dipping toes in the heat of summer.

Staff were great, especially a young boy who runs errands, he took us to the shop, helped us find taxis and put logs on the fire for us. We felt very welcome at all times.

Thoroughly recommend this Riad

we have just got back from a three night stay and in the short time there was made very welcome by all of the staff, who drew us little maps and walked us to local attractions, admitted finding your way back in the dark is an experience but there are plenty of people willing to take you back for a few dirham, i usually tipped between 10 and 20, there are around 13 to the pound so not a huge expence, we found this only added to the whole experience of Marrakesh. It was without a doubt the most eye opening and lively experience on holiday we have ever had the pleasure to be part of, and we will return next year to this riad with our four children as its definitely something everyone should experience.
A few things to be aware of are the men and youths who say they will take you to a place to eat/buy something or see something, totally do not believe anything they tell you as they are on to a tip from the bar or shop owner and will expect a tip from you as well, also if a shop keeper says 500 dirhams, offer what you think its worth as they are looking at how much thay think they can get out of you, be firm and polite and have a laugh with them and you usually can get a fair price. In my experience 500 dirhams can value the item at anything from 50 dirhams to around a 100.
Apart from that keep a very open mind and enjoy the whole assault on your senses.

booked here to stay with my mum for a week on the 28th of march, had read reviews before and expected a quite basic, small riad. we arrived about 8 o'clock and the minibus dropped us about 5 minutes away as the streets were too small for it to get down, one of the drivers helped with our suitcases and walked us to show us the way to the riad, to be honest we were quite scared as we were walking because it was very dark and there were a few men standing around the streets looking as we walked past but when we got into the riad it was lovely. very traditional beautiful Moroccan decor just as we wanted, it is also quite big with loads of seating space and a large roof terrace. the staff were all friendly and fatima was especially helpful making us a map of the best way to get to the square and around marrakech. breakfast was nice and the room was very clean, room cleaned every day and given new toilet rolls and clean towels each day. the souks are great and the big square is about a 10/15 minute walk away through these. best to get a taxi home after 8 o'clock, and make sure you tell the driver to take you right to the door. the moroccan people are very nice as long as you are nice to them and not ignorant like some people were, we stopped and spoke to them everyday and got to know them well. another thing i was worried about is what to wear, we thought we might have to be covered up to respect their culture but any clothes are okay. i wore shorts and vest tops many days and this was fine, i also seen a lot of people wearing this type of stuff. the weather wasnt great, quite warm but cloudy and rained a few nights. overall we had a brilliant time and would definitely come back to marrakech and riad amssaffah!!

Stayed 5 nights in March 2012. Nice welcome, homely stay, very friendly and pleasant service and always happy to advise and help beyond expectations. Rooms were better than what we were expecting for a Riad - and were pleasantly surprised. Good location, right in the centre of Medina and walking distance for the main square, souks and other sightseeing areas in Medina. Fatima, the receptionist looked after us well and was extremely helpful, and so were the other staff. A truely good Riad experience. AJ

Room Tip: Take a room overlooking the pool

After reading other reviews thought this raid would be ok and expected fairly basic. Yes we had wonderful welcome with the mint tea, and offered choice of rooms. The rooms were just ok, very dark and cold, had to keep heater on through the night which was very noisy so didn't get much sleep, bathroom needed to be a lot cleaner, no loo roll and no hot water, others were complaining about the absence of hot water too, there was no promise of it being sorted either !!! Consequently although we had paid for 4 nights at the riad we moved out after the 1st night and found another riad which was just wonderful.
