“An oasis in the middle of the medina”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

Once we arrived at Riad Al Massarah, we just did not want to leave and go back out in the madness of the souk. The hotel is really lovely, peaceful, beautifully decorated, extremely clean, green, with wonderful service and delicious food for breakfast and for dinner if you order in advance. The owners made sure to give us all the tips that we might need but were not invasive. We felt at home.

This is my first time writing a review of a hotel. I can never be bothered. I am making the exception for the Riad Al Massarah. My stay here was excellent on every level. If you come to Marrakech and don't stay here I think you have really missed out. It's an oasis of calm in a whirlwind of a city. You come back after hours of bartering to soothing piano music and a comfy chair. I am an art director by trade and this place has been art directed down to the smallest details. It is stylish but comfortable at the same time. It feels homely but has the slick service of a big hotel. I want to write something negative so that readers won't think this has been written by the owners but I can honestly say our stay here was rare perfection. I could go on all day but instead I just want to say - thank you Michel and David for a wonderful few days. We'll be back for sure. Matt & Emma

Room Tip: We stayed in the Carmin room. I would definitely recommend it.

We are old hands in Marrakech, but decided to try somewhere new this trip. We were delighted that we did. Al Massarah is a great place to stay. We like Bab Doukkala, and the riad is not just calm comfortable and very tastefully decorated, but Michael, Michel and David go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable and trouble free. They are a mine of information even if you have been before. All the staff go the extra mile, the rooms are spacious, the bedding and beds of high quality and the breakfasts copious. What more is there to say. We will return.

Room Tip: Some rooms have a sitting area outside where you can have breakfast.

Just arrived back from a wonderful stay with hosts Michael & Michel with assistance from their lovely staff.
It really is a place of tranquility amongst a bustling, exciting city. Once the doors are closed peace & calm is restored.
I loved everything about it. The decor - wonderful, location - perfect, staff - friendly, food - our special order for dinner was exactly what we asked for, attention to detail, personal touches ( I got to go on the back of a moped through the souks in search of that little something for back home I couldn't find!) I could go on but suggest you take a look for yourselves, you won't be disappointed.

Me and my partner spent an amazing few nights in this beautiful riad this April. Everything is brilliantly styled and the staff wee amazingly obliging. Michael and Michel were away but David provided us with great tips on how to explore the city. There are no real drawbacks to this beautiful riad though it is a little difficult to find.

Four wonderful unforgettable nights in this strategically located Riad. The structure is beautiful, the rooms are great and full of local flavor. But the service is the real "best in class": a perfect fusion between the European organization and the typical Moroccan hospitality. Breakfast on the balcony right outside your room is priceless. Michael is always ready to give you good in-depth briefing on what to do in Marrakech. The service is impeccable, like in a luxury structure. I strongly recommend to try the "full massage" in the hammam: it's a real memorable experience. I definitely will go back!!! PS: from the moment you book they make you feel "pampered" providing very good pieces of information via mail. BRAVO!

Room Tip: They are all different yet all just great !!!

We had an absolutely fantastic time staying in this well located, beautifully designed riad. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Michael, 1 of the owners, provided an excellent indepth briefing on the places to visit and the restaurants to eat at in Marrakech. We were never disappointed by his recommendations. The room was 1 of the nicest we have stayed in before. We also really liked their focus on environmental sustainability.
We'd also recommend dinner in the riad.
After hours of touring around the bustle of Marrakech, Riad al Massarah was an amazing oasis of calm to retreat to in the afternoon heat.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Jade room, with which we were very satisfied.
