“Like a palace! Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2011

My bf and I stayed here for 3 nights, but we wish it was longer! This riad was a perfect haven from the heat and hurry of Marrakech. It really had it all - beautiful, big rooms with opulent ensuites, air con, rooftop terrace, huge and delicious breakfasts, and the hosts were wonderfully welcoming and helpful. The riad is located only a few metres from one of the babs (gates) leading into the medina, so it was always easy to find our way home again, even at night. I can't recommend this place more - it was a highlight of our 2-month trip through Africa and Europe!

Room Tip: We stayed in the 'blue' room - absolutely beautiful!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2011

Have just returned from a 4 night stay in Marrakesh with my partner and friends. This riad was amazingly peaceful to come back to every night after the busy hustle and bustle of the souks and medina. The overall look of the Riad is very Arabian Nights, with beautiful tiles and moroccan influences everywhere. The Riad is owned by husband and wife Farid and Kirsten. Kirsten is extremely attentive and helpful, on arrival she instantly got us complimentary water and the local favourite 'mint tea'- delicious, very sweet and served in tiny glasses. We were then showed to our rooms, we had booked the Blue and Red Rooms which were beautiful. The 4 poster beds draped in fabric, ornately decorated wardrobes, and beautiful tiled bathrooms. Everything coordinated even our hairdryer and handsoap! They provided fridges, safes and most importantly air conditioning. Ours was unfortunately broken on the first night but Kirsten arranged for it to be fixes asap the next day and provided us with a fan in the mean time. There is a lovely roof top terrace to go relax and enjoy the view. Breakfast is served every morning an is another treat. Boiled eggs, fresh made breads, cheese, jams, yogurts, melon, tea and coffee all delicious and gets u ready for a days sightseeing. Whilst in Marrakech I would highly recommend visiting Jamaa el Fna Square, get lost in the souks, the Marjorelle Gardens, a trip to the atlas mountains, eating tagine and couscous, Bahia Palace, Koranic School and the Museum. All very beautiful and interesting! Beware of locals trying to offer help but then trying to charge you for it. Barter for everything! Especially taxis! My friend had someone try to pit a snake around his head without warning so just be firm and yell NO and they get the message! 'Shooma' also means 'shame on you' if any ladies get unwanted attention and feel uncomfortable. Overall a fantastic holiday

Beautifully decorated small riad in very good place, very close to airport bus stop, Majorelle garden and souks market.
Rooms are spacious, even bathrooms have a lot of space.
Was sad to leave, I would like to come back. Enjoyed my stay there very much.

Riad Losra is run by a Moroccan man and his Austrian wife, so they're able to speak Arabic, French, German and English. The staff is very friendly, the five rooms are lovely decorated and very clean, breakfast was amazing (especially the Moroccan pancakes on Saturday) and the riad is conveniently located in-between Gueliz (the new city) and the souks/Djemaa el Fna (the old city). It's also less than 50m from one of the city gates. The area surrounding the riad is poor, so it might not be the best location for single female travelers. We stayed in the Red Room, which is the only one not on the side of the street (useful if you don't want outside noise). The rooftop terrace is a wonderful place to chill and drink thé a la menthe (mint tea).

To start with the only very minor disadvantage: it's location on the side of the medina, more than 30 min walk from Jamna el Fna. However, the medina exit and taxi stand are very close by so all in all it's not that bad.
Having said that: the Riad is very, very nice: we had a very big room and bathroom (Blue room) with a good bed (rare in Morocco in our experience), there is no noise, there is a great roof terrace with relax chairs and small tent, the breakfast was great and the manager was extremely friendly, inclusing providing us with complemetary tea and medicine when my wife was ill.
All in all a great place to stay and with 50€ per night very cheap.

This riad was a charming place to stay in Marrakech. It is in a "lokal" area of the medina, some people may prefer to stay in the new town, but to us this was perfect.
The main sights of Marrakech within walkin distance, you will have a lot of fun trying to find your way in the labyrint-streets. People are friendly, do not worry if you are lost.
The room of the riad was beautiful (we stayed in the red room), and the bathroom too.
They also had a nice terrace.
The staff and the manager were friendly and nice people. We hope to visit Riad Losra again, if we go back to Marrakech.
