We spent 10 days in Riad Boussa and it was marvelous. We were welcomed in a warm and caring way. We were taking care of and given the best of everything. We were helped and advised when ever we needed. The Riad is beautiful, relaxing and decorated in delicat colors. Thank you Ali, Drits and Bigitte for making our holiday to something we will never forget. It was a pleasure to stay in Riad Boussa. And what a wonderful surprise at my husbands birthday...we will love to stay there again

Just returned from a fantastic 3 night stay. First time in Marrakech, so read the reviews and I must say everything was spot on. I was in contact with Brigitte the owner before the trip who organised the booking and all the transfers, she explained that she would be away whilst we were staying. But not to worry as Ali and his cousin Driss would be looking after things. All we can say Brigitte, is they done an excellent job, We could not fault their service and little touches, were excellent. Even though Brigitte was away she put together a great itinerary for our visit, which Ali talked us through in great detail.

Tried two of the food outlets, in the main square that appear at night, they all have numbers on them, hence the small review here, No 14 was amazing, best meal we had and by far the cheapest if you love sea food. Also tried No 1, which was poor in quality and freshness, so would avoid (unless they were just having a off night).

Well done to Ali and Driss!

I was so exhausted by long flight from Tokyo and long road trip from Airport in Casablanca but once i entered this Riad, My tiredness flew out the window!
Staff were very friendly and kind. i stayed on 28 & 29 Dec but Riad was very warm enought to sleep. No shampoo but towls, a hair dryer were provided. Big (double?) bed for 1 person, very clean and tidy.
The dinner and breakfast was delicious. and close to Fna Square & very convenient for sight seeing.
i stayed 2 nights and this Riad was best in my Morroco trip (in another city, i stayed 4 star hotels but this Riad was much better).

Brigitte and her team made us feel so welcome in their lovely riad in the old town. We booked our trip to Morocco at the last minute and Brigitte helped us book an Atlas Mountains hiking tour and a desert trip, both of which were great. She also gave us great tips for Marrakech too and booked us into one of the best hammams in town at short notice. The riad itself is cosy, peaceful, clean and beautifully decorated. We dined in a couple of nights and they were some of the best meals we had in Morocco. The breakfasts are also delicious. Highly recommended!

This lovely Riad is a short walk from the Medina and is beautifully appointed. The host and staff are friendly, courteous and always available to help. I would highly recommend this Riad for any travellers looking for a comfortable, stylish accommodation in a traditional setting.

This was my second time staying at Riad Boussa after a memorable first time 7 years ago and we were welcomed by the lovely Brigette who owns and runs the boutique riad. She kindly arranged a taxi service from the airport as well as a porter to show us to the riad otherwise one could easily get lost and is highly recommended. It is ideally situated within the Medina down some cobbled streets amongst the maize of hideaway homes and alleyways away from the hustle and bustle of the souks. It's quiet, tranquil, very relaxing and perfect for a short stay, the rooms are comfortable, clean and the little touches of the bed being turned back before going to bed and light refreshments in the evening added that extra special service. Once we were settled Brigette was kind enough to help make our stay memorable by recommending several restaurants and tourist attraction to see and places to avoid. We mapped out our days events according to her recommendations which we were very grateful for. One of the highlights was her recommendation of Les Baines De Marrakech Spa for a traditional hammam and massage. Her staff were very friendly and only too pleased to help make your stay more comfortable. One can't forget the very friendly permanent guest O'Maley the cat who makes a point of welcoming each guest but in return loves a bit of attention. I couldn't fault Riad Boussa and highly recommend it for your stay while in Marrakech.

You would never guess what hides behind the large wooden door on one of the many alleyways that runs from the medina (about a 7 minute walk from the main square). The answer is a haven. We were welcomed in to the light, airy courtyard with a glass of (the seemingly endless) mint tea. We then spent about an hour with Brigitte as she gave us huge numbers of recommendations for our stay, advising us of places to see, places to eat, ares to seek out and areas to avoid. She also offered to book us for a hamman at her favourite spa. All of her recommendations were great. The Riad is beautiful with lovely areas to sit and relax in, including sun loungers and seating areas on the roof terrace - we loved our breakfasts in the sun!
Brigitte and her team are wonderfully helpful, welcoming and friendly. We had a great stay and would thoroughly recommend this riad. Thank you!!
