“What lovely hosts and what a beautiful Riad !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

dear Jean Michel, and Fredric
You have a beautiful Riad tranquil and serene.
such an oasis of calm in the middle of the hot and vibrant medina in old Marrakesh.
you made us feel so welcome and nothing was too much trouble.
The food was excellent and Abdul (forgive me if I have misspelt the name) looked after us very well.
We had warmth and humour shared please let us come to stay again!!

We just got back from 3 nights in Marakech. Fun city, but the riad was great. Jean-Marie made our stay so much easier than it would have been and we felt at home from the moment we arrived. We highly recommend it. Would love to go back!!

Located close to one of the main tourist attractions in Marrakesh (Ali Ben Youssef Medersa) and not far from the tanneries. We booked for three nights here and ended up staying for six! Jean-Michel, Frederic, Said and their team were very knowledgable and could not have been more helpful. This peaceful riad has a lovely roof terrace, is very comfortable and serves a good breakfast. Just perfect. We also recommend you ask them to arrange the taxi to collect you from the airport as we would have struggled to find it on our own! Until the next time ...

My friend and I celebrated her 30th Birthday by visiting Marrakech for four nights from 26th February to 2nd March. We chose this Riad based on Trip Advisor reviews and price and found it to be everything and more that people have said.

We were looked after very well by Kermit the Cat and Said while the owners were away. He showed us how to make mint tea, advised us on how much we should be paying in the Souks, would go with us to book taxis if we needed so we got Moroccan price not tourist price and organised us a trip to the Atlas Mountains through a tour company which was just a great day!

We took the offer of being met at the airport and were so glad when realised there was definitely no way we could have found it on our own in the first instance. It felt very welcoming to be met by Francois at the taxi drop off point. We ate dinner at the Riad on our first night which was lovely and booked to have a hamman and massage which is a must for a visit to Morocco!

We loved how authentic and personal the whole experience of staying at Riad Safa was and will definitely be returning soon!

Thanks Said and Kermit!
Best wishes from Lyndsay and Amanda xx

Fantastic place to stay. Hosts and staff delightful people so kind, helpful and fun. The rooms are lovely and tastefully decorated in local style.
We had superb meals cooked for us and the driver who took us on a trip to the Atlas mountains was knowledgeable and great company.We would not hesitate to recommend Riad Safa for an excellent and convenient place to stay in Marrakech. As for Kermit the resident cat we miss you!!
Jean Michel and Frederik you are doing a great job long may your Riad remain a wonderful place for people to enjoy.

I chose Riad Safa on the basis of glowing Tripadvisor reviews, and it was even better than I anticipated. It is in an excellent location in the medina. The whole riad is beautifully furnished, the rooms are clean and very comfortable. The staff and owners were more than helpful - they provided maps and even let me borrow a guide book. Every morning we had breakfast on the roof terrace accompanied by Kermit the cat. Dinner was also very good. Thoroughly recommend!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Welcome at Riad Safa, a true haven of peace in the exciting Medina of Marrakesh.Riad Safa is located in one of the last authentic parts of the old city (medina), with some of the major cultural institutions just around the corner, and ten minutes by foot from the famous Jemaa el Fna square.Safa means serenity or pureness in Arabic, and it is our aim to provide you with a feeling of pure wellness during the longer or shorter time you stay with us. The atmosphere therefore, is very quiet. Even at the moments that the Imam of the neighbouring Mosque spreads his prayers over us; then you feel the mistery of the East and the presence of the languorous city.We speak English, French and Dutch and we love to help with everything you would want to be assisted with; whether it is a transfer from or to the airport, the booking of an excursion, or to have you accompanied safely home through the myriad of narrow alleys by our helpfull staff, after a 1001-night dinner in the medina.We want you to feel comfortable, and at home with us.Affordable luxury, that is what we want to offer you.Marrakesh is a bustling and buzzy city, so it is nice to know that after a tiring day of shopping in the souks (covered markets) or a visit to one of the palaces, you can immerse yourself in the lovely quiet of our Riad, and relax in one of the intimate "salons" or, during spring and summer, cool down at the small rooftop pool with a dewy glass.At night we offer a delicious "table d'hotes" in a romantic setting on the roofterrace, or indoors, just as you prefer.In-house hammam & wellness • we have a small hammam on the rooftopterrace, which you can book• on demand we can arrange for scrubs, massage, facials, pedicure and manicure. ... more   less
