Liked: This is a BEAUTIFUL Riad, we were amazed that we had managed to stay there for such a cheap price - for the first day or two I was convinced there had been some mistake! The staff are really helpful and provided a lovely big breakfast each morning. Especially love the roof terrace.

Liked: Riad Sabah was fantastic. It was very clean and well furnished with a cosy roof top terrace and living space. Sabah was absolutely gorgeous, making us mint tea and baking us yummy treats for breakfast. It was the prefect location for 11 friends to celebrate my brother's birthday. This was my second time to Marrakech and the Riad was definitely the highlight. Awesome place, thanks.

09 December 2009 Sergi would recommend this property

Liked: was incredible, if you want, the first day they send someone to the AIRPORT or train station to pick up you since it is a bit hard to find the Riad.The staff is friendly recommended us the must-see of authentic marrakech.Riad facilities, large terrace, rooms are lovely.The location is great, in the middle of the authentic life of a neighborhood of the medina and away from tourist life. 100% recommended.

Liked: An excellent Riad with a very helpful, knowledgable, owner. The roof terrace was a great place to chill out with a bottle of wine after a hectic day. Located in a quiet area of the Kasbah, 10 min walk from Djemaa el-fna square.

Liked: hans and his wife were the most welcoming host ever. he stayed up late to welcome us to the riad; his wife was truly helpful in her suggestions of where to go and what to see; she also stayed up waiting for us to get back from a day trip when we left our luggage, so we could get in without any hassle.

Angela Donaldson

31 August 2009 Angela would recommend this property

Liked: This riad is beautiful, the decor and furnishings are lovely and I can highly recommend the breakfast which is plentiful. Sabah is definitely value for money and the 20 minute walk to Djemaa el Fna is almost as fascinating as the square and souks. I rated 'Friendliness and helpfulness of staff' and 'Facilites and services on offer' down because even though the staff are very friendly they are rarely there. If you are not wanting any local advice, directions or, information on tours or what's on offer in Marrakech then this is fine but, we would have appreciated it.

Tracy Hatfield

10 August 2009 Tracy would recommend this property

Liked: It was just as advertised. It was a bit daunting the first time I made the 10 minute walk to the Medina but as someone else said in the reviews it gives you a real feel for a Morrocan neighborhood. I would have NEVER found it without the aid of a taxi. Coming from the States i would never walk down twisting streets and certainly not with men hanging out everywhere, but after a time or two it didn't bother. You have to get used to the staring. The rooms were gorgeous, the food nice, the terrace was amazing and beautiful. People did gather in the center common area. It feels a little like being a guest in a friends house. The showers were lovely, the air-conditioning cold, and plenty of water bottles in the fridge. The pictures don't do the place justice though, the rooms really have a spa like resort feel.

Liked: The place was clean, safe and friendly. It was also quiet and for us a bonus that it wasn't in the main medina. Breakfast was lovely too and could be served on the roof terrace if you wanted. Between the owners they spoke English, French and German, which was great.

Nicola Halstead

17 April 2009 Nicola would recommend this property

Liked: The Riad is beautifully decorated in the moroccan style, and rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff are friendly and helpful and very accomodating. The Riad is a little way from the main square, about a 10 minute walk, but it is a pleasant walk through small streets and past the Saadian tombs. The shops here are generally cheaper than the souk.

Liked: It was exactly what we had hoped it would be. Full of character, intimate and yet with scope for meeting other residents - the internal courtyard was a wonderful place to gather in the evenings around the fire. The warmth of the owners was reflected in the gorgeous colours of the decor. An altogether magical experience. We will be back.
