Since Covid hit, I was not able to travel and neither did my Moroccan parents. Now that the situation eased, my husband and I decided to go to Marrakech and meet my parents over there so we booked Riad Laksiba so we can be in a popular and authentic place at the heart of the city and we didn’t regret it! It was quiet, clean, rustic and everything you want a Riad to be. A small downfall for us was not having access to wifi but given the short stay we managed without. I would highly recommend. Also, we fell in love with Laziza who made one of the most amazing teas and Omar who was always looking after us. Can’t wait to go back there!

Meine erste Marokkoreise startete mit dem Riad Laksiba wunderbar. Es ist nah genug an allen Wichtigen Orten in Marrakesch und dennoch abgeschieden und ruhig. Gute Parkmöglichkeit in der Nähe. Das Riad selbst ist wunderbar renoviert und sehr gepflegt. Omar hat mich herzlich empfangen und war für Fragen jederzeit präsent. Ich fühlte mich sehr gut aufgehoben und sicher.

Myself and my family (9 adults and 2 babies) spent 10 days in Riad Laksiba over Christmas 2016 and it was a perfect holiday! The villa is perfectly located, far enough from the hustle and bustle to feel like a haven, but close enough that an evening meal in the main square is always an option. It is immaculately presented with traditional styling and none of the shabbiness that can sometimes try to hide in 'rustic' styling. But the real bonus of the villa is the team - Adil, Omar, Ali and Malika were perfect hosts. They could do enough for us to ensure that we had a wonderful stay and that everything we needed or desired was available to us. The food that the team cooked and served was great - delicious and varied, as were their recommendations for local eateries. The bedrooms were all very comfortable (including AC), each with an individually designed ensuite. There was plenty of communal space for relaxing in each other's company and the roof terrace made for a very special Christmas day venue! I really only have positives to say about our stay here

Out first visit to Morocco, and therefore Marrakesh. Wanted to find the true Marrakesh, and wanted to find somewhere to stay in the heart of the medina. This Riad is on the south west side, which actually having seen the rest, is actually the best area to be in. Owned by an English guy, but run by Moroccan, this place is REAL. So authentic, so don't expect 4* luxury, tv's, and all mod cons. Instead expect original features, beautiful tranquil rooms with little nooks outside to chill out in, two tortoises on the roof terrace, lovely fresh breakfasts, and the most attentive staff ever. They will help you in any way they can- if you need help to find your way they will help, need transport- they will help. They sorted out a trip to the Atlas Mountains, a tour on a horse calache( the guys lives literally over the pathway) and we were lucky enough to be taken shopping for the ingredients and then to see a tagaii being made, and it was utterly delicious. An amazing oasis in the middle of the frenetic, chaotic city of Marrakesh. Thanks so much to Adil and Ali. They absolutely made our holiday.

Mutesem bir butik otel. Riad Laksiba geleneksel Marakes yasamini yansitan guzel bir atmosfere sahip. Avlusu, dekorasyonu, yemekleri ve servisi ile cok keyifli, huzur dolu 5 gun gecirdik burda. Calisanlar her ihtiyacimizi karsilamak icin ellerinden geleni yaptilar ve ayni zamanda bizi rahatsiz etmeyecek sekilde varliklarini hissettirmediler etrafta. Ama ne zaman bir seye ihtiyacimiz olsa yanimizdaydilar. Calisanlar genc, dinamik ve egitimli. Bize sehri, gezip gorulecek ve alisveris yerlerini ve nasil yolumuzu bulacagimizi cok guzel acikladilar ilk gunden ve bu sayede hic kaybolmadik Marakes'in labirent sokaklarinda. Ozellikle, kiz gruplari icin mukemmel bir otel. Riad Laksiba sehir duvarlari arasinda, Medina pazar yerine sadece 15 dk. yurume mesafesinde olup, Kasbah caddesinden sadece 5dk. yurume mesafesinde. Burasi bir cok ailenin (Marakes zengin aileleri) yasadigi bir yer oldugundan geceleri kendimizi gayet guvende hissettik. Bu acidan en guvenli bolgelerden birisi burasi. Eger siradan bir tatil gecirmek istemiyorsaniz, kesinlikle modern bir otel yerine, Riad Laksiba gibi geleneksel bir butik otelde kalin.

Wow! What an awesome place to stay. The ambience of Riad Laksiba Is tranquility personified. The beautiful courtyard and rooms, the ethnic furnishings and artwork all make you feel like a Sultan at peace. The staff were all really friendly, knowledgable and helpful without being intrusive. As soon as you arrive they talk you through a map of Marrakech, so unlike everybody else we never got lost. We loved breakfast which was always fresh and plentiful. You could help yourself to wine and beer at much lower rates than restaurants. After speaking to other travellers we think this is also the best location, within the city walls, in an area that feels family safe at night but only 5 min walk to Kasbah street and 15 min walk to the main square and souks. Also pre-arrival information from manager was full of useful tips.

This place was a real gem. The Riad had charm and was right in the heart of the city which allows you to experience Marrakesh at its finest. Breakfast was filling and delightful and set you up for the day. Adil who runs the place out there is possibly the nicest person i have ever met, he cannot do enough for you and will walk you places, get you things,advise you on where to go and how to do it. Nothing, and i mean nothing, is too much trouble and he always has a smile on his face and genuinely wants to help. Beautiful Riad, beautiful place, beautiful people.

This beautifully renovated riad is located in the kasbah. About 20 minutes walking to Jemaa el Fna. A peaceful oasis in a vibrant city. Describing the staff in a few words is impossible. Very helpful, friendly, open minded, communicative, and - so we were told by the girls in our group - good looking. The last royal stable of Marrakesh is next to the riad. Nice rooms, beautiful tiling, outdoor dining, and a great view from the roof terrace, especially at sunset.

Simon has done a brilliant job restoring this old house into a wonderful riad. The staff who looked after us were absolutely fantastic - wonderful breakfasts, fresh morrocan mint tea at all times of the day, and brilliant advice regarding Marrakech itself. There is a lovely rooftop terrace too!

Although the room was a bit noisy, we had a good experience staying here. The inside of the riad and the rooms are cool and I can imagine that in the summer it is really nice to sit here in the shade and in the coolness of the place. The rooms are nicely decorated and they have all that you need. Walking to the city centre takes about 15 minutes. The riad lies in a quiet spot and there are enough shops around to buy food and water. The people working here were really nice and they put a lot of effort in making us comfortable. Breakfast was also good, the best we had on our trip. All in all we had a really pleasant experience staying here and I would certainly stay here again.

About the neighborhood
Riad Laksiba sits in a small cul-de-sac, Derb Kadi; with a stable opposite housing six beautifully kept horses and two Caleche’s (horse drawn carriages) to serve tourists. Street life in Derb Kadi consists of children playing and locals going about their day to day lives. The street, in itself, offers a fascinating insight into Moroccan life; all neighbours are very welcoming and enjoy interaction with Riad Laksiba and its guests. Located in the Royal Kasbah district of the Medina (the first Citadel of the Sultans of Morocco) and very easy to find; one would struggle to rival its location. Simon explains: “A Marrakech location choice is always going to be a compromise. If you locate close to the main square (Jemaa el Fna) then it’s constant pulse, especially at night, may well become tir...
