“Good, Great, Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2011

Good: The riad is lovely - just lovely. It feels very spacious and quite, even though you are very close to the action of Marrakech. Rooms are clean, large, and very tastefully decorated. There are several public spaces that are very welcoming and relaxing- perfect for families with kids or couples. There is a terrace where you can take breakfast or tea. Not a killer view, but a nice space nonetheless.

Great: The little pool! There is a good sized plunge pool in the open courtyard - perfect for hot Marrakech days. Parking is VERY close and access to the Riad is easy. Many Riads in the medina require a long trek through crowded streets, which is fun sometimes, but not convenient. Conversely, many Riads outside the Medina on main roads are expensive and charmless. Riad Bayti manages to offer both charm and convenience.

Amazing: Customer service! We were personally greeted at breakfast by the owner and he helped us make massage reservations for later that day. But most of all, when I accidently booked the wrong weekend (arg!) and just didn't show up, they graciously moved our reservation to the next weekend and didn't charge us a thing - even though they would have been within their rights to do so.

I would go back to Riad Bayti for a romantic weekend with my husband in a heartbeat, but we are also planning on taking his parents there when they come to town. I kind of can't believe this isn't higher rated on tripadvisor.... Great stay.

We arrived at Riad Bayti at short notice after changing our travel plans and were given an exceptionally warm welcome by the owner. This Riad is nothing short of beautiful. It is simple, clean, homely, full of character and charm - the perfect haven in the heart of Marrakesh and an antidote to the hustle and bustle of the city.

Set off of the main road, on a narrow street, you need to ask a local shop owner where the Riad is and for a small token he will take you direct to the door. You will need to be able to carry your luggage as cars cannot get especially close to the entrance but the benefit of this is that the only traffic passing by are scooters and bikes.

Once inside, it is impossible to not feel relaxed. The decor is understated and stylish - it is a welcoming combination that makes you feel immediately at home.

Our room was simple but stunning - there is real thought and care in the details. The colour scheme was sumptuous, the furniture beautifully hand carved, the pillows and bedding were incredibly cosy, there are robes hanging in the bathroom, and the rooms are cleaned and made impeccably each day. The women working in the Riad are very attentive and eager to please - on the first day, after checking in, we showered and went out to explore and returned early evening to fresh towels in our bathroom. A small touch that said an awful lot about how much they wanted to make our stay a real treat.

Breakfast is served on the roof terrace - whilst the weather was not brilliantly hot for our stay, this was a lovely way to start the day, and I can only imagine how wonderful this space must be when the sun really comes out.

Each evening, the Riad is lit with carefully selected lamps, lanterns and candles - it's a very beautiful sight and an absolute pleasure to return to.

Riad Bayti is located in the Jewish quarter, a short walk to the main square and souks, but with a number of good restaurants and cafes very close by.

I would very happily and highly recommend this Riad to friends and family and look forward to making a return visit in the future.

The rooms are quiet and well-appointed; the common areas comfortable but a bit funky. There are more elegant and quieter Riads, but this one has the advantage of being about a block from a major street--convenient if you are carrying more than a carry-on. The neighborhood is a bit rough--it's the old Jewish area and can get disgustingly dirty. The Riad has a charming tortoise (for the baraka), which we named Greg because he is so gregarious. Who knew tortoises (torti?) could charm?

Walking to the Riad your first impression will be, were on earth am I going to stay?
As the narrow street does not reveal the loveliness of this charming Riad.
Behind the large wooden door the atmosphere is overwelming.
A beautiful decorated patio with a little pool, candles, plants and Moroccan lamps.
On the first floor, the rooms can be found and they are large clean with Moroccan styled bathroom and good beds.
The extended breakfast can be served where ever you want, but our favorite place was the roof terrace.

This beautiful riad is located in the old mellach inside a sensual market(its very close to jemaa el fna but far enough not to be inside the touristic mess of it) . The riad itself is located in a big house decorated with great taste and make you feel at home. The rooms, the terrace, the pool, the turtles, and above all the hospitality of the crew are something special. The amazing young couple that are the owners of the place took care of us and helped us with every issue we had. We never met such a hospitality. We are recommending this place for everyone. A great place for travelers and people that seek a quiet and warm place to be in. Elad and Iris

We really enjoyed staying there and stayed for a week. Our room was quiet, well
cared for. The standard was just fine. The proprietor was very kind, helpful. We loved eating meals on the roof terrace, where we could see the storks on neighboring walls and
buildings. We were comfortably cool, despite the fact that it was unseasonably hot in Marrakech during our stay. We appreciated the fact that Diego Lasou, the proprietor sat with us and told us how to navigate in the city, pointing out places to see that we would not have found ourselves. For us, even though we are really well-seasoned travelers, it was a unique experience and we remember our time there with great pleasure.
