“Superbe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

Had a wonderful stay in Riad Saba, we came by car from Portugal and had some difficulty finding it that's why we gave the location only 4 stars,we could have parked much closer (25m) but luckily did not have that much luggage (we left the car in the parking lot and used taxis during our stay)
The Riad is lovingly restored by the owners with the finest furniture and fittings,love those tadelakt walls
The location is otherwise fine with many nice restaurants and boutiques around the corner and close to the Bahia Palace the Museum Dar Si Said, and the Maison Tiskiwin a private museum in the house of a retired Dutch anthropologist.
10 minutes to walk to the Djemaa el Fna for some evening action.
Maria and Jamal gave us a wealth of information and on our leave Maria made us a map to get out of the city to the Taroudannt road which was better than a Google map

I have never experienced such top class level of service in my life. I travel a lot, but the attention to detail at the Riad Saba was phenomenal. Jabrane and his wife Maria were genuinely concerned about our comfort, and gave us lots of tips during our stay.

Spent 4 days at Riad Saba and have only good things to say about it. Staff was friendly, professional and knowledgeable without being intrusive. The location is great right in the middle of the old town and yet the Riad is beautiful and serene.

the riad saba was booked based on reviews online and we were very pleased to note that it lived upto expectations.
everything was smoothly run and organised and jamal, maria and jabrane were willing to go the extra mile on every occassion. very peaceful- close to sights. clean and lovely.
Maria is very easy to chat with and they love the place. which shows. its also one of a few riads you can drive upto. really useful when you are tired and hot after a days sightseeing.
i travelled alone and was meeting friends in a few days. I was extra well looked after for the period i was alone.
highly recommend it and would defintely stay there next time.

Room Tip: i prefer the rooms on the first floor. less noisy and more spacious.

Riad Saba is a wonderful, really a perfect place for a stay in this 1001-Night-Town. Its not only that the Riad is very close to the medina (by foot it´s about 10 minutes to Djema el fna and the souks), it´s most of all the absolutly warm and welcoming atmosphere. We immediately felt like staying with friends. Jabrane, Maria and Jamal, also all the others of the Riad Saba-Team are very helpful, caring for all of ones needs, they are really warmhearted. The Riad itself is a very calm place to stay and rest and relax with extraordinary interieur and lovely details. Everything there "tells" you: you are really welcome here. For a trip to Marrakech we will always stay at Riad Saba - and surely we will visit again.

We had a great stay at riad Saba, Jemal, Imran,and the girls who helped out were great, so helpful they made our stay. The roof terrace was an ideal place to chill in the sun and to sit in the evening watching th sun go down and a welcome respite from the hustle and noise outside.
We had the ocean room which was spacious and really comfortable.the location is ideal near the square and Jewish quarter and the palace all walkable. We had great time and can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: All rooms on first floor so steps upto rooms

We are very pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay in Marrakech and Riad Saba!

Yes, you are right, the location is very nice, tucked in between the big square Jema el Fna on one side and the Mellah, the jewish qarters not far away.

We hope to soon again find you on our roof top in the sunset!
Until then travel well!

Just recently we spent a fantastic 4 days visiting Marrakech& we were happy we choose to stay at Riad Saba. We truly enjoyed the warm welcome of Maria, Jabrane& of course Jamal who guided us all along and told us many intereresting facts about the history of Marrakech.
Even though we planned to have our dinners outside the Riad, we could not resist the delicious traditional dishes prepared by Hassan, so we ended up spending our evenings in the cozy atmosphere of Riad Saba, in the pleasant company of Hassan& Jamal.
Due to it's location it was just the perfect sanctuary to chill after a full day of exploring this fascinating city.
We like to say a Big Thanks to the whole team, including the 2 amazing girls helping the family with all household chores.
They all made us feel at home& we will definitely return when opportunity will be given.

Room Tip: Our room was located on the first floor& we truly enjoyed waking up in the morning with the soun...

Dear Peggy & Lex,

Already during our email conversations before your arrival you felt like friends...
And it was very nice to spend some time with you in Marrakech. I truly enjoyed our walk in the souks.
We have not forgotten the table that you asked us to send you. It is in the office and we are in contact with someone who might be able to bring it.

I am sure we will see each other again, somewhere-sometime!
Take care and travel well until then!

kind regards
