“Wonderful stay in this homely and welcoming riad”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

I had a really enjoyable stay at the Riad Verus and found Leonora a very welcoming and knowledgeable host. On arrival we were offered drinks in the courtyard lounge area. This space is decorated beautifully in the typically Moroccan style, with beautiful rugs hanging from the walls, and lovely décor throughout. Our room was equally authentic in its décor, with a lovely en suite bathroom also done in the Moroccan style.

I think what I loved most about the riad was the two lovely roof terraces. One is right on top of the building with fantastic panoramic views, a veritable sun trap! A lovely spot to sit, very peaceful, and it was really comfortable lounging about on the beautiful soft cushions up there. The other roof terrace was on the level below, really large, and again with lots of low cushions covered in Moroccan rugs, but in the shade (which was often a welcome respite from the sun). It was great hanging out there, chatting with the other guests, who seemed to come from all over the world. The whole vibe in this riad is very sociable and friendly.

Leonora was great. She organised guides to come and collect us from the riad and take us around to visit the tannery and the medina. She also advised us on the best restaurants to eat at and made us the reservations, and also booked our airport taxi for our return transfer.

All in all we had a great stay and I would definitely come back!

Loved this Riad. I have been to Morocco 3 times now and this was one of the best places to stay. The owners and staff are extremely friendly and warm and you have a lovely arrival. It is clean, comfortable and a great feel to the place. Highly recommend

It was a very nice experience, as it was our first time with my daughter and husband in Morocco. The staff was very helpful and gave a load of good advice during our stay. We will visit again as soon as possible.

I couldn't recommend Riad Verus enough. The hostel is always clean and presentable and is traditionally decorated - it's so colourful and bright! The breakfast is lovely and the maids are approachable and friendly, likewise the owners are fantastic and will try their best to make you feel at home. The location made it for me - it's far enough from the Main Streets to feel safe and peaceful (surprising for the medina!!) but close enough to reach all the attractions quickly. Also they have a bar, so a few drinks with other travellers and friendly staff doesn't go a miss here!

This riad had a rooftop terrace with views over the whole city. The breakfast was included and very complete and delicious. Moroccan mint tea was also available for free during the day. Other meals and water were much cheaper in the medina, but it is very close by. The common area was welcoming and a nice place to meet other travelers. Payment was expected up front in cash, and we were given some tourism information when we asked for it. There were occasional misunderstandings but overall a good stay.

I spent two nights there with friends. It's an awesome place. The riad looks amazing, not crowded, but you have the possibility to meet with other travellers.
Our room was very comfortable, with two floors, four beds and a spare bed, own bathroom, towels, two tvs, breakfast, etc. The riad offers programs, the stuff is kind and friendly.
I can recommend this place with all my heart.

Staying here has been so much fun. The staff is super friendly and helpful. The riad is also gorgeous and you will see the culture of morocco in the decoration of the place. The people that stay here are really nice and you will make friends immediately. The riad also has daily tours available for the Medina and Meknaz. You should stay here it's great!! The breakfast is also so nice.
