Riad Boussa
Ranked #10 of 1,160 Marrakech B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 April 2014 via mobile

My wife and I decided to stay at Riad Boussa during our first visit to Marrakech and Morocco.
As soon as we arrived at the airport, there was a driver waiting for us. He took us to the main square Jma el fna where the hotel is. From the main square it's a 19 minute walk to the hotel. During that walk we were thinking, "how far is this place.. is it safe"? But the luggage guy was nice and kept telling us it's not too far. As soon as we arrived at t he Riad, we were blown away! This place is stunning! Best part, away from the craziness of the square, yet very close. Not to forget, very clean.
What makes the stay perfect? Brigete, Idris, Ali, and other ladies that work st the Riad. They are SOOOO accommodating and helpful, which made our stay excellent.
We had been on the road for 11 days already. Asking Brigete to help us with laundry, she got that done and never charged us. Pick and drop service to the hotel was covered by the Riad as well. Breakfast was delicious!
Loved the place, and people. Highly recommended.

We can only echo the sentiments of others. I loved that the walk to the square was just 5 minutes. We had the airport pick up arranged. This is a must. Brigitte sent us a list of recommended things to do during our 7 night stay ahead of time, and after we chose the things we liked best, Brigitte made all of the arrangements. Highlights were the hammam and massage at Les Bains de Marrakech, the day trip to the valleys around the High Atlas with Aziz, and the cooking class with Souk Cuisine. Brigitte's recommendations for restaurants and sightseeing we're perfect for us. The best part was Riad Boussa's hospitality. Because we were there for a week, we had plenty of time to relax at the riad. Brigitte, Ali, Driss, and Fatima bent over backward to make sure we had a lovely stay. Maybe you are a travel nerd like me and research your trips to death. What are you waiting for? Time to stop researching and make your booking!

This is a great Riad in a great location. The rooms are nicely decorated and the beds are comfortable. The owner, Brigitte, is very involved and responsive. She helped setup a transfer from the airport which was very helpful. Without the guidance from the locals, I’m not sure we would have found this Riad which is tucked away in a quiet area in the Medina. Although you are hidden down a couple of side streets, the location is very convenient to the key sites in Marrakech. It is only 5 minutes away from Jemma El Fna. Also just a few steps down the main road to the Djemma El Fna there is an amazing smoothie shop. I’ve attached a photo to help identify it. Don’t miss it.

Brigitte provided a map of the city and gave us some suggestions of places to visit. She and her staff were always around. Breakfast on the roof was very nice. A nice touch is they provide a new bottle of water every day and a little bedtime snack on your pillow. It is a classy establishment at a great value. A couple of items to be prepared for: 1) We were asked to pay in Euros instead of Dirhams. This was a little extra hassle since we were coming from America. 2) Be aware that there are a couple of cats which roam around the Riad. They will enter your room if you leave the door open. Neither of these items really detracted from the experience. I highly recommend Riad Boussa.

Fantastic hotel with great hospitality and friendly Brigitte & the team. Very close to the hustle and bustle, but once inside it felt completely stepping into a clam of heaven. The hotel is extremely peaceful, and it was in the enjoyment of relaxing with the stunning in-house made mint tea . Our room was neat, clean and comfy. Really a wonderful stay, did not want to leave! Honestly speaking, it was a perfect choice, hotel, location, food, specially the mint tea all amazing and would definitely recommend to friends. Thank you for an amazing time in your gorgeous hotel.

Dear Eli,

What a pleasure to read your review like it was to welcome you with your daughter.
A special moment for a daughter with her father to celebrate her birthday.
You were very nice together and we were pleased to make of your stay a special one.

Come back one day with your daughter Stephanie, I'm sure you will be a good guide for her.
The occasion to make some more nice pictures.

Warmest regards from all of us.
Brigitte and the team.

It was our third time in Riad Boussa and again we felt like at home – very happy. For those who are looking for a Riad that is centrally located (only 5 minutes walk from the main square), quiet and most importantly with a friendly atmosphere and very good service, this is the place to go. We are always looked after by Brigitte (owner), Ali and the rest of the team who are helpful with providing us tips on restaurants, shops, good places to hang around in Marrakech but also giving tips on more practical things like buying bus tickets, booking trips around Morocco, etc…..Thank you Riad Boussa for a wonderful stay and making us feel so at home! We can't wait to be back. M & M

You can find no where more central or more beautiful to stay than this small Riad, lost in the centre of the ancient Medina and right in the middle of the souks. An unusually balmy February meant that we were sunbathing on the secretive but stylish roof terrace after the perfect choice of delicacies for breakfast. It was just a long weekend but the multilingual Brigitte and her team made us feel so welcome and cosseted that it felt like we'd had a real holiday. The decor is stunning and the rooms and facilities just perfect, as was the lemon chicken tagine the one night we ate in. The Riad is just five minutes walk from the lively Medina central square, the Place Jamaa El Fna, and the donkeys, horse and carts, local crowds, pushy salespeople, smells of all kinds and kids trying to show you the way all adds to the fun as you try to get anywhere. I loved Marrakesh and I loved the Riad Boussa!!

Room Tip: They are all very distinctive.

My sister, our friend and I stayed at Riad Boussa for 4 days and enjoyed every minute of it. Our rooms were very comfortable, the location was excellent and the service was impeccable. Brigitte and her team went out of their way to make our stay memorable. An added bonus was being able to sit and drink mint tea by a fire in the evening as it was quite chilly at night in February.
