What a place in the middle of a bustling area and street, hidden gem, tranquil place. Michel and his staff are superb on every level - expect to be dazzled by the real Morocco, décor, rooms, and do have a Hammam! - wow. A little nervous but well worth the experience. I have stayed in lots of places - this is up there. Book it !!

I booked 4 nights here for my husband's birthday and it was absolutely perfect. All restaurants and excursions were booked in advance which took a lot of hassle away from the planning.
The service is also top notch with lovely staff. Our breakfast was brought up to the table outside our room and we had one delicious dinner when we arrived.
The amber room has its own open fire which is nice in the winter and there is a sitting room downstairs with a large fire where we were able to enjoy a few beers after a day's shopping.
The location is also great - edge of the Medina but down a quiet Derb with about 15 minute walk to Jama El Fnaa.
It's not often I really don't want to leave a place but this riad made me want to stay much longer. When we return to Marrakech I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else.

Better than excellent, the Riad Al Massarah was fundamental in making our trip to Marrakesh a success. Michael, Michel and David take the time to sit down with their guests and talk them through how to get the most from their visit: everything from decent places to eat, to when to visit sites, to how to deal with the local "guides" that pounce every time you open a map on the street. Marrakech is exhilarating, but it is also a challenge. This advice is an essential, as is the privilege of being able to retreat from the hurly burly of life in a Third World city in to a Riad that is calming, unfussy and gloriously cossetting. The ambience here is sophisticated and cool, the service is impeccable and from the moment we arrived it felt like home. The rooms are beautiful, spotlessly clean and wonderfully comfortable. Breakfasts are a joy - home made breads and pastries, yoghurts and crunchy fruit salads with freshly squeezed orange juice. We ate twice in the Riad in the evening, and each time our dinner was better than restaurant quality: the fish tagine we enjoyed on our final night was a particular delight. The Riad has a hammam, where you can undergo a deep clean and massage from a personal attendant, and - although we weren't sure we were brave enough to do this (British reserve and all that) when we did it turned out to be a highlight of the holiday. The roof terrace, where our room was, is lovely - so good we spent two whole mornings up there, soaking in the sun and the sounds from below. Transfers to and from the airport were as smooth as butter. Truly can't recommend this Riad highly enough, believe what all the other Reviews said (and thank you Trip Advisor) - don't go to a concrete block in the new town, come to the breathtaking ancient medina, and Riad al Massarah for a holiday you will never forget.

Room Tip: The room on the roof terrace is lovely. You will get woken up early by the call to prayer (and an ov...

Stayed here for 3 nights in May 2013. Charming ambiance, very nice rooms, great location and very lovely hosts. Made us feel very comfortable in the riad, walked us around a little to make sure we had a feel for the city, prepared wonderful food, had great recommendations, and were just a pleasure to hang out with during our stay.

Would certainly go back there if we end up in Marrakech again.

There are several riads in Marrakech but what sets this one apart are its little touches. Michael showed up to Bab Doukkala gate to pick us up to walk us to the Riad so that we are better oriented with the location and routes! Very touched... Micheal and Michel make every effort to ensure you are comfortable and that you're best positioned to make the most of your time in Marrakech. Dinner reservations, cafe recommendations, mountain travel arrangements, public hammam arrangements etc, there is precious little the staff won't do to give you a superlative experience!

The rooms are tastefully done up and the food is amazing. The wifi works except in the terrace rooms so that you should keep in mind before your booking.

Room Tip: Wifi doesn't work on the terrace rooms.

Can't recommend this gem of a place enough. Very tastefully decorated. The food & service were both excellent. Especially enjoyed the wonderful breakfasts in the dining room of fresh fruit salad and perfectly cooked eggs.

All the staff was exceptionally friendly, and a special thank you to Marcel for taking us out to our cab in the wee hours of the morning on the way to the airport. The staff was also very helpful in making reservations for restaurants in and out of town.

The Riad truly made our time in Marrakech memorable.
