“All you could ever want”
Reviewed December 4, 2010

Booking with Cherif was as easy as it could be. We found the Riad without difficulty and were made most welcome. Cherif was a mine of information, fluent in both French and English. The room was excellent and quiet as you would expect from a Riad albeit in the centre of the Medina. Comfy bed, lots of hot water, large room, excellent price. Breakfast on the terrace within sight of the mountains was a real luxury. You could chill out here for days if you wanted or walk straight out into the souks and the Djaama al Fna.

Stayed here a total of 4 nights at the beginning & end of a 3wk trip round Morocco. Its very conveniently located for the Medina which is about a 5 min walk thru the alleys (once you've got the hang of it!), yet still a very quiet place to stay- if you dont count the 0530 call to prayer, but you cant escape it wherever you are. Rooms are good, albeit on the small side, thats the Medina for you. Cheriff is very welcoming & helpful,a goldmine of information; you can use his laptop/ internet connection. He will tell you to treat it like home, which is lovely. my 2yr old loved it.
Highly recommend.

The Riad is only 5 Minutes from the main square - in a really quiet area, which you come to appreciate in Marrakesh very quickly (-; I'd recommend you book your transfer via the Riad (Cherif) as it can be hard to find in the maze of all the little alleyways. We stayed in a lovely room upstairs and were looked after with a lot of care by Cherif (also known as Omar we found out) and the lady who made us the lovely traditional breakfasts in the morning. Roof terrace is great for chilling out and the Riad even offers free internet in their little lounge/sitting room. Rooms are kept clean and have air-conditioning, so what more do you want? Exactly.

We spent 3 nights in the paprika room in August. Cheriff was very helpful in the beginning, he helped us to find the riad from Jemaa El Fna, then we got fresh orange juice in the patio. Unfortunately later I felt that all of the other guest get more attention, help and friendliness from him, which was a bit disappointed.
The Paprika room was very beautiful, and even had AC which was very useful in the hot. We had no keys for the room, which was first weird but then we used to it and felt us still safe.
The breakfast was delicious and enough (but we got every morning less than the previous morning).
The riad was quiet perfect for a nice sleep after the nighlife on the place Jemaa El Fna.

I stayed here with my girlfriend for five nights in August/September 2010. The Riad itself is lovely with clean, bright, comfortable rooms, great food and a relaxing roof terrace. At less than five minutes walk from the main square it also has a great location in the heart of the medina. However, the main selling point and the reason people go back to Riad Ker Saada is the host and part owner Cherif, who consistently went above and beyond what might reasonably be expected. He arranged a pick up from the airport, made a delicious dinner for us on arrival, provided great directions/recommendations, found and arranged the cooking course we really wanted to go on (with Lalla Nezha by the way who was brilliant), arranged our trip to the mountains, had his driver stop off at the bus station to buy our tickets to Essaouira, offered to look after our bags on the last day back from Essaouira and generally looked after us throughout our time there. We felt very much at home and were able to use the free wifi and help ourselves to drinks from the kitchen at any time and just settle up at the end. There are probably more luxurious Riads in Marrakech but not for this price and certainly not with this service. Very much recommended.

I first took the cheapest room for 40 euros but realised that it was a bit below standard and also had no air condition at a temp of 50 degrees. So got the best room shown in the picture which was very good, cleaned daily except some areas of the toilet seat with wasn't but overall very nice. The manager Cheriff was the best part of the riad as he was very very helpful with anything and everything. My only concern was that I was charged 15 Euros from the airport to the riad which would be cheaper if you had taken a taxi by yourself rather than arranging it via the riad. But again cheriff will tell you that, so there is no deception here. The terrace was beautiful. Showers are a bit weak as in most riads in morocco but I'm sure most of us could manage with that.

My only concern was that it was not exactly close to the central part of the medina and for a single female I found it uncomfortable to walk through these dark alleys. I always had company to drop me to the riad at night time as I would not walk there on my own. Having said that Marrakech and Essaoiura are the safest places I have ever been to. People and those dark alleys initially look threatening but they are absolutely harmless.Safer than some of the european countries too. I have stayed in riads more closer to the main square before which is much better for single travellers and also quite good ( Bahia Salaam is an example) but not as friendly. You will feel at home in this lovely riad.

My hubby and I stayed here for 4 happy nights in the pink room on the first floor: lovely. Cherif was the perfect host and Sayeda cooked an evening meal for us which was the best food we ate in our month in Morocco: thank you both. I recommend this Riad wholeheartedly. Cherif even helped us negotiate with our chosen Mountain Guide (he can recommend him to you if you ask I"m sure) which was over and above his responsibility as our host.
Our rooms wasn't huge but size wise it was perfectly adequate. Comfy bed and characterful bathroom. Charming and authentic decor and really conveniently situated for all the sights. It is a tranquil setting in the glorious madness that is Marrakech. I'm sure there are plusher venues but for value for money: stay there, you won't regret it.
