Still currently on my visit in marrakech it's amazing how quiet and peaceful this riad is considering the hustle and bustle of the souks just outside. This is in a perfect location just a short walk to the main square. The rooms are very clean and have air con which is perfect for the heat.

Breakfast is lovely in the morning sun on the roof terrace not the biggest of selections but will do.

The staff are friendly and will try to help as much as they can.

On a very safe street (police are always outside the kings palace 24/7). Hotel is close enough to all the action (10min walk through souks to main sq) but not too close to be kept awake with call to prayer at 5am! Staff are cannot help you enough. Large rooms air-con'd room with blackout wood blinds for sleep ins/afternoon naps.

We enjoyed our stay over this past Easter weekend at this raid. An employee met us where the Taxi could drop us of which was arranged by them and was waiting for us. The dinner was delicious and the staff was very friendly and helpful giving us tips. They spoke excellent English.

The Riad was very peaceful and the area around the pool is very relaxing with good WiFi and tranquil music being played.

The Raid is located just down from the Kings residence so its heavily guarded neighbourhood which made it very safe. It located just above where the Souks start so you descend down into them or go the other direction and walk around the outside to the square and is located very close to Ben Youssef Madera which is one of the noteworthy sites.

I have traveled to many hotels abroad, and I was seeking a traditional yet comfortable place to stay and the Riad Dar Saad was nothing short of everything we were looking for. We were greeted by friendly staff who was willing to help us in any possible way. We were three girls traveling alone in Morocco, and the riad was conveniently located, and safe. The staff also made sure to advise us on routes to take on our way out and what ways to go to and from places to avoid any trouble. After a crazy day in the souk and the streets of Marrakech, if you are looking for an aesthetically beautiful, quiet, and peaceful place, Riad Dar Saad is a perfect option. The communal areas are decorated in a Moroccan-style, enhancing the entire experience. The pool area offers a comforting ambiance which is a lovely contrast to the craziness that is Marrakech. The rooms are spacious, clean, and very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious, composed of local breads, jams, and tea. The internet is also fast and reliable.

I can honestly say that my trip to Marrakech would not have been the same if I had not stayed in such a comfortable, beautiful, and conveniently located riad.

We had the most amazing time staying at this riad, which was so conveniently situated, so peaceful, and so beautiful.

The whole place is marble and wood, with big comfy cushions and seats. Its very quiet and calming, so you feel like you are walking into an oasis after the noise of the souk. Our apartment was, I think the only one on the ground floor. It had its own courtyard with natural sunlight, as well as a bedroom and little sitting area all to ourselves, although we spent most of our time around the pool on the sofas. Breakfast was always good, with a nice combination between bread and breakfast pastries from local bakeries and more traditional coffee and jams, and while the dinner is definitely more expensive than the restaurants you will find in the main square, the orange custard, tajine, and couscous was possibly one of the best meals I had during my time there.

While we spent most of our time in Marrakech, we wanted to explore outside the city for a few days too. The hotel staff were so helpful in setting up everything. Most of them only speak french and arabic, which wasnt a problem for us, but if you dont speak french, the woman who was at the front desk for most of the time we were there spoke english too. All we had to do was tell them what we wanted to do, and within two days, we were being driven to the desert for camel riding an overnight stay in a Berber tent before being driven back. The price was by far cheaper than any other program we saw while we were there, and everything was included, which made the experience really enjoyable.

While the Hamam and scrub was a great experience, and definitely one I would suggest, I think that going to one of the traditional public hamams throughout the city would perhaps be a more interesting experience. However, If you are uncomfortable being around a lot of naked women, the Hamam in the riad is certainly the place for you.

Overall, I could not be happier with my stay at Riad Dar Saad. Next time I go to Marrakech, I will definitely be staying there, and I would suggest it to anyone who is planning on visiting.

We had great service from all at the Riad which is a short, easy walk from the main square. We made use of the lovely Hammam and massage room. Our room was very pleasant though big tub in the middle did not get the use we had hoped. (Ensure the Riad is warned of any plan to fill a very big bathtub).

Room Tip: see the photos since all rooms are unique.
