I stayed at Riad Saba with my wife for 4 days. We booked our stay at the very last minute, and the owner, Maria, was able to arrange for us a pick up from Casablanca. She accepted payment in different currencies (Euro, Dirhams, or US dollars). The price was quite reasonable for a nice place like this. the location is about 10 mins walk to Jem el Fna. I rate this place 5 stars because of a few things that we are thankful for. First was security. During our stay there were numerous riots and protests (this was around the time of the Egypt protests, and unbeknownst to us, there was a national day of protest!). There was a security guard who checked to make sure places were safe to go, and i believe he even went out to look for us when we didn't return until very late one evening. Also, one of the workers, (i think her name was 'Imam') helped us find a shoe store and bargained with the owner so that we weren't completely ripped off, and she even mailed our post cards for us. The workers would prepare a nice breakfast in the morning whenever we got up. Because we were visiting in the off-season we had the entire place to ourselves! Lastly, the owner arranged for a day trip to the atlas mountains which was a great experience. So overall i think this is a nice place to visit. Message me if you have any questions about this place.

Room Tip: i was in a brown room. i can't remember which one it was. but really all of the rooms are quite nice.

One of the best hotels I have stayed in. Cosy rooms (stayed in "Mauve" which I liked the most (visited all the rooms on that floor).

Breakfast was fantastic, helpfull staff.
Entire hotel is beautiful.

Only two distubing things were people playing football on the nearby square, which was a little (but only very little - ) disturbing.
It irritaded me a little bit that we were charged 20 dirhams for a simple tourist map given in the hotel - I havent been charged for maps even in the cheapest hostels in Asia.

This was a second visit for myself and a third for my travelling companion. Another fabulous stay. Nothing is too much trouble for Maria and Jebrane, who are exquisite hosts and the lovely friendly and helpful staff. Our transfer to and from the airport was organised and we were met at the Riad the inhouse staff with mint tea and home made pastries.

Maria and Jebrane ensure that your experience is smooth and relaxing and their knowledge and advice is most helpful for the contrasting bustle of the city. Rashida, the housekeeper, accompanied us to buy spices and she took us the markets where the moroccans shop and showed us the fish & meat markets and the bakery where the local pastilla is made.

Riad Saba is beautifully furnished; stylish and the rooms all of a good size, light and airy and all have aircon. The roof top terrace is a great place to have breakfast and sun loungers and sunhats are provided if you want to do nothing but relax. The location is central and is within a five minute walk of the Place Jemme El Efna; local restaurants and souks. We stayed on each trip for four or five days but you come away feeling like you have known each other for years!

We would highly recommend it to anyone travelling to Marrakech and we wouldn't think of staying anywhere else! Loved it!

Room Tip: First floor rooms are a little lighter. All are lovely.

Staying in a Riad while in Marrakech is a fantastic way to visit, and Riad Saba is the only one you'll want to stay at. The streets and alleys of Marakech were often hectic and confusing and the weather was unseasonably hot - which often made for exhausting days of explorations. After a busy day of moving through the city, coming back to an oasis like Riad Saba was a relief. It's beautiful inside. The atmosphere was total relaxation and Maria, Jabrane and the staff were superb hosts. The rooms were the cool, quiet, clean accomodations we expected but much more beautiful than we had hoped. The meals they provided us were delicious and served with local wines that were a revelation. Others have written about how helpful Jabrane and Maria are and I whole-heartedly agree with what I've read. Their love for their city and the culture is enlightening and infectious. Their advice helped us save money, time and made our explorations more meaningful.
