“Look no further…..Riad Boussa is wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014

Having just returned from a 3 night stay to celebrate a special birthday I feel compelled to sing the praises of this truly wonderful Riad set in the heart of Marrakech. It is perfectly located for exploring the Medina and souks of the city. You'd be best to be guided there by one of the Riad's porters on your arrival but thereafter finding your way round is straight forward. Best of all is that your return to the Riad after a day in the hustle and bustle of Marrakech is like discovering an oasis of calm and tranquility.

Brigitte went well beyond the norm before we arrived both in advising on a suitable itinerary for the 2 full days we had there and in preparing for a welcome birthday evening meal and cake. Ali and the other staff (apologies for not having time to make their proper acquaintance) supported Brigitte to maintain this whilst we were there and made what was a fabulous trip to a rather other worldly city a truly magical and memorable experience. One that we are now keen to repeat as soon as we can.

Breakfasts were served to suit our preferred wake up time and were a delicious combination of fresh fruit, coffee / tea or mint tea, fresh orange juice, local jams and local bread and pancakes.

I have absolutely no complaints, only praise, for Brigitte et al at the fabulous Riad Boussa.

Room Tip: All rooms focus around the same central courtyard (as per most traditional houses in Marrakech) so I...

I was impressed with their high hospitality. Even before arriving at the Riad, the staff was helping me out over e-mail organizing my trip in Morocco. Staying at the Riad was fantastic, just wonderful. Room was so pretty and clean, food was extremely delicious, staff members were all friendly and so helpful. I have traveled around the world but I think I experienced the best service ever at Riad boussa. Staying at Riad Boussa is one of the highlight of my visit to Morocco. I recommend this Riad to all my friends who are planning to go to Marrakech. Yoko

Of all my many trips abroad to various countries, I have never experienced such hospitality as they show at the Riad Boussa. Many thanks to Ali, who sat with us on arrival and developed a personalised trip itinerary with us for our three night stay, complete with recommendations for food and activities and advice on staying safe/not spending unnecessarily. They provide a full courier/taxi service from the airport to the riad to and fro, unlimited tea and refreshments (often providing you with more treats than you asked for at no extra cost) and will book activities or restaurants at your request.
The Riad itself is beautiful, clean and well-maintained, exactly like the photos, and has a lovely roof terrace for relaxing in the sunshine. The location is perfect - a few minutes' walk away from the heart of the Jemaa al Fna, and fine to walk to many of Marrakech's main attractions.
I cannot recommend this place more highly and will certainly be returning to stay here on future visits.

This Riad is excellent - so good I had to write a review before I'd returned to the UK. A big thank you to Brigitte, Ali, and the staff for a wonderful stay and making us feel so at home. Their help and local knowledge was invaluable. Certainly in my book to visit again.

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.

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).
