Liked: Beautifully renovated riyad with a gorgeous terrace to relax after a hectic day navigating the souks. Close to the action but far enough away to be quiet when it counts. Hans was very friendly and extremely helpful with tips and tricks for getting by in a sometimes quite bewildering culture.

Disliked: A little difficult to find but it made for a great adventure.

Liked: The Riad was really clean, the rooms were nice (big and comfortable). The bathroom was ok. We liked the breakfast (home made yoghurt) and the mint tea. The staff was nice and helpful. We even had take-away dinner in the Riad.

Disliked: We weren't sure whether it had room-service. The beds were made every day but we don't know whether the bathroom had be cleaned too. Towels weren't changed though. Otherwise, everything was fine. The Riad is in a neighborhood called Kasbah, a 20 min footwalk to the big Djamaa el Fna. The light in the bathroom wasn't light enough to see yourself proberly in the mirror.

Liked: Riad Sabah was absolutely everything you would want for a riad in Marakesh. Its clean, spacious rooms, breakfast is deliicious, relaxes atmosphere and you feel like you're far away from the hussle and bussle of the Medina when you need a break. We highly recommend staying here and would do so again and again. Sabah and Hans were extremely friendly and helpful and made us feel at home.

Disliked: nothing.

Liked: Perfecta situación en mitad de la Kasbah, limpieza, buenísimo en calidad-precio y una disponibilidad absoluta de los dueños para ayudar en cualquier cosa. A nosotros nos perdiereon la mochila en el vuelo, y desde el riad nos ayudaron muchísimo a la hora de llamar al aeropuerto, hacer las gestiones...

Liked: Hans and Sabah are great hosts always willing to help and provide great service. The aircon works well and was really appreciated when the outside temperatures were 43 degrees. The Riad has been very tastefully decorated and the bedrooms and bathrooms score a 10 all round. This is the Riad to stay in if you want that extra level of comfort and cleanliness... we found it the most relaxing place to stay in after two weeks of hard travelling... and having a kitchen and fridge etc to make a fresh, cold fruit salad to eat on the great roof top terrace. If you are startingor finishing your trip to Morocco this is a great place to stay... and it is priced correctly.

Liked: Riad Sabah was a fantastic place to stay. The staff were lovely, helpful and welcoming. The room was very comfortable, clean, and beautifully decorated. Also, the Riad has an excellent location in the Kasbah, an authentic borough of Marrekesh, away from but a short walk to the main tourist points.Finally, the breakfast is great, and the mint tea is served all day - the best we tasted in Marrakesh!!!David Southgate & Alexandra Marques
