“Fantastic find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

An oasis in the chaos of Marrakech, the perfect place to get away after shopping in the Souks! What really makes this riad stand out is its manager/chef/host Hassan, for whom nothing is too much trouble, he is probably the best hotel manager/host we have come across anywhere in the world.
Dinner on the roof of the Riad is a must, Hassan cooked what was by far the best meal we had in Marrakech.
The final nice touch was the coffee and tea left outside our room every morning that meant you could wake up at your own pace. Which was then followed by breakfast that was offered every morning with no time limit! Why can't more hotels do this!

FYI - this Riad comes highly recommended, however don't expect a flat screen TV with movies on demand in every room. This is the place you get 'away' from that, and its lovely.

Riad Tizwa in Marrakech is by far one of the loveliest places i've stayed in world wide. The rooms are just amazing and designed in such authentic way. The Riad as a whole is so charming and beautiful and the Staff is superb, Every morning , fresh coffee is waiting out side your door and than breakfast is served on the lovely balcony. It is all done so seamlessly... Did i mention the location is just perfect.

I loved my recent stay at the calm oasis of Riad Tiwza over New Year. With a superb location near the main square and the souk, the riad is a welcome place to come back to after a hectic day. Mohammed and Hasan are brilliant hosts and the level of service is amazing - nothing is too much trouble and the breakfasts are incredible. The rooms are beautifully decorated, comfortable and spotless. I can highly recommend Riad Tizwa for a relaxing stay in a fascinating city. Catherine Mann

We really enjoyed our stay in this excellently run Riad. Its real taste of old Araby near the heart of the city with all mod cons. A short walk to the souk, sunny (v.tasty) breakfasts on the roof, beatuiful star-drenched sky at night. Lots to do and see nearby, clean comfy rooms and helpful staff. Would recommend it for a peaceful but fascinating stay. A gem.

Room Tip: Rooftop room gave views of great skies - especially at night.

We booked Riad Tizwa to get the whole family (aged 15-83) together for a birthday celebration. Taking over the whole riad worked really well for everyone. It's a magical oasis in an otherwise hectic city with great bedrooms and plenty of spaces to relax and socialise - but also to retreat. The roof terrace, sun-soaked even in December, was a real joy after damp grey England.

Beyond the delight of the surroundings, full of interesting touches, what made our stay at Riad Tizwa special was the exceptional friendliness and attentiveness of the staff, for whom nothing was seemingly too much trouble. Coffee and tea were laid outside each room in the morning before a sumptuous breakfast was lugged up three flights of stairs to the roof terrace and set out on tables strewn with rose petals. At our request, the team also cooked dinner for us on two evenings - and provided probably the two best meals of our entire trip. And the charming Hassan, having patiently set out directions to find something or other in the Medina, saw the look of panic on our faces and offered to escort us there.

In December, warm sunny days gave way to cooler evenings but there were heaters in the bedrooms and an awning over the central courtyard meant that we could sit there quite comfortably.

I highly recommend Riad Tizwa.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great. There's just one that doesn't have an ensuite bath-shower room, th...

My recent stay at Riad Tizwa was in many levels prefect. For the safety conscious, the house is located in a very chic part of town with the Royal Palace nearby. Very easy to find (even for me) The house itself seems timeless. Traditional Moroccan arquitecture with some very today facilities and a very modern decor. My room was massive and gorgeous. The staff is warm, friendly and always happy to help with dinner reservations, taxis, wifi, you name it. Every morning you'll find hot coffee and tea outside every room. The breakfast al fresco was incredible; Homemade yogurt, fruit salad and muesli and heavenly bread. The best part though was after a day of exploring this chaotic city going back to this calm oasis.

Stayed several nights in this delightful Riad recently. Friendly, helpful and welcoming staff. Rooms clean, roomy and well appointed. Located within an easy walk of main attractions. Breakfast on the terrace each morning was delightful.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms are the coolest in the riad if you are travelling during a hot period.
