Reviewed May 8, 2013

My husband and I stayed 4 nights at the Riad Boussa and highly recommend this outstanding beautiful riad. Athough in the heart of the medina, it maintains its own peaceful atmosphere,( punctuated by occasional welcome mood music).The interior decor is a stunning combination of Morrocan tradition with French elegance. Brigette has created a relaxed atmosphere whilst at the same time paying meticulous attention to detail in the way the riad is run. Her staff, Ali and the girls, who prepared and served delicious breakfasts on the terrace were always attentive and service came with a smile. Brigette spent time making sure that we had a map with all the information we needed for exploring the sights of Marrakech. Lastly, she welcomed the rest of our young family who came to call on us with a smile, mint tea and biscuits. We found truly genuine hospitality here .

Dear Pamela and Nigel,
I was a little bit worried about you because I sent you a message but I didn't have received a reply on my e-mail box. But I read your feeling on tripadvisor so...
Thank you to have shared it on this website.
It's very important for us.
I'm sure you will come back at Marrakech.
We will be glad to welcome you again at Riad BOUSSA !!
Warmest regards from all of us.

We had a wonderful stay with Brigette. The riad is beautifully decorated, comfortable, peaceful, and in a perfect location. But Brigette, Ali, and the rest of her staff is what made this riad the favorite of our trip. It has a special charm that made it a very unique experience. Brigette and Ali took care of us like family and truly went above and beyond to make our visit the best possible. They arranged our excursions to the Atlas mountains and Essaouira, and Ali even came to the bus station to hand deliver a ring I had left behind when we made a pit stop in Marrakech on our way from Essaouira to Fes. Then he stayed to help us get from the bus to the train station. I am eternally grateful and miss them both!

Dear Heather,
Thank you so much for your nice comment.
The Riad BOUSSA was your first riad and the best for you !
It's really a pleasure to read your feeling.
We did our best to help you to organise everything, it's normal for us but so important for our guests.
You will have very good memories.
Morocco is a very nice and safe country. Tell that to all the newyorkers.
We will be glad to meet you and Gregg later.
Kind regards
Brigitte and ALI, of course !!

We have been so much spoilt by the warm welcome and the hospitality receveived during our - unfortunately too short - stay of just one night in Marrakech. Not only is the riad situated in the midst of the medina, its perfectly styled interieur and decor give you the feel of a truly Moroccan guesthouse. As the building has kept its original structure, the interior climate is most refreshing so that we did not have to make use of air conditioning. Brigitte, owner and manager of the riad, is most familiar with Marrakech and can give you any advice including on public transport. The dinner served in the patio was most delicious and we enjoyed the company of Brigitte and her crew while having a chance to exchange with other guests. Being served the breakfast on the roof terrace was a last great experience before we had to leave for the airport.

Dear Peter,
Thank you for your message and the pictures.
It was the first time for you but not for Mélanie, your daughter.
She stays with you this time.
The Riad BOUSSA is her house at Marrakech. She stays here every year and recommand the riad to the others members of your family (your other daughter, Max and Ursula..).
You liked it ? Perfect, sure you will stay more than one night next time, before to go to Essaouira or before to come back in Switzerland.
Come back this summer !!
Kind regards
Brigitte and the Riad BOUSSA staff

We stayed at the Riad Boussa for five nights and highly recommend it. The Riad is centrally located, a five minute walk to the Souks and ten minute walk to the Square, and provides a peaceful retreat from the activity of the markets. Brigette, Ali and staff are extremely personable, which adds a very friendly atmosphere to the Riad. They really like to engage with their guests, and were helpful with recommendations for restaurants and activities. The rooms are not large, but are comfortable and well-appointed. We have daughters (10 and 13) which slept in the loft bedroom. This worked perfectly for us, although could be cramped for larger/older children. Ideal for two kids between 6-12, I would say, as have to be old enough to climb the ladder. The terrace is a lovely retreat and a perfect spot to have the delicious fresh breakfast.

Room Tip: The room that slept four people is perfect for a family of four with middle-aged kids (~6-12).

Last March we stayed with Brigitte. The location is perfect, central but away from the crowds. The rooms and the Riad are very tastefully decorated and clean. The breakfast is delicious. Even in the early morning of departure she prepared us a breakfast. We enjoyed her enthusiasm for Marrakech and she was very helpfull to book for us some nice restaurants. And Brigitte sent us some nice souvenirs from Marakkech we wanted but couldn't find at the Souks. Thank you Brigitte and staff for the very nice stay, we hope to come back very soon!

We are very happy to have chosen Riad Boussa for a 6 night stay in March 2013. Brigitte welcomed us warmly and was very generous with her advice and help - she went out of her way to make our stay an enjoyable one. The Riad itself is beautiful, calm and peaceful, and our room was great - very comfortable and clean. From our arrival when we were picked up at the airport and brought to the Riad (a good option to avoid getting lost in the tiny medina backstreets) until we left, everything went smoothly. When we arrived we sat down with Brigitte and she gave us good advice about places to see and good places to eat in Marrakesh; she also arranged for us to stay for one night at the Riad Watier in Essaouira (also a fantastic place). On our final day and at very short notice Brigitte organised a trip into the mountains with a private driver (a great guy called Noureddine) to 3 valleys including the verdant Ourika. The whole team at Boussa were lovely - Ali and the girls in the kitchen were very friendly and the standard of service was very high: lovely breakfasts in the patio, a gorgeous fish tagine one evening, rooms cleaned spotlessly every day. We highly recommend Riad Boussa - you won't be disappointed! Thank you Brigitte, Ali and everyone at Riad Boussa for a marvellous stay!

Hello Patrick and Marion,
Thank you for your message.
It was really a plesure to welcome you and your mum for few days.
You stayed enough time to enjoy Marrakech, Essaouira and the mountains.
But come back later to relax again on the terrace with a delicious mint tea..and for more adventures.
Boussa (kisses) from all of us

My husband and I stayed in Riad Boussa for 4 nights in March. It was an excellent stay - Bridgette was extremely helpful; she arranged a day trip for us to the high atlas mountains (which was a highlight of our trip to Morocco) and made us an appt at a hammam. All of the staff were very friendly - no request was too much trouble. Our room was very nice and cozy; the lounge areas were great to relax after a busy day out esp when the fire was lit. The location was good - very close to the square. Overall great stay and highly recommend!
