Reviewed 20 April 2014

Brigitte we would like to thank you and your staff for making our stay in Marrakech one to remember. From the moment I contacted you I felt we were in good hands and I wasn't wrong. We arrived in Marrakech on a busy Saturday afternoon with three kids ages 6, 11 & 15. After meeting the trolley guy we started walking thru the square onto the souk with its many colors and wonderful people. When we entered the Riad we were stunned for the beauty of this place. You have done a wonderful job with this property and it shows in all the details. The Riad is centrally located in a quiet street yet close to the hustle and bustle of the Medina. The restaurant recommendation was perfect for our family. We really enjoyed the Hamman you booked for our family. Breakfast on the terrace was an enjoyable experience. The kids love the tea and the afternoon cookies as well as the wonderful dinner you prepared for us. We will definitely keep Riad Boussa in mind next time we visit this vibrant city.....Thanks for the warm stay....

Riad Boussa is magical and provides a nice, calm change of pace from bustling Marrakesh. Brigitte and her staff were awesome. Welcoming and VERY accommodating. From the moment we arrived we felt like the only guests there - tea and cookies were such a nice treat. Riad Boussa goes above and beyond to make your stay special and unique. The rooms are so charming and decor very detailed and special. Brigette anticipates your requests and plans everything for you so your only worry to is have a great time. We did. Thank you Riad Boussa. You made Marrakesh memorable.

This Riad is a beautiful gem hidden in the Marrakech Medina, just walking distance to the Souks and Jemma El Fina Square. The rooms are very well designed, the staff is super courteous and the early morning breakfast on the riad terrace makes your stay very pleasant. Love the color coded themes of the bedrooms.

The owner of the Riad helped us book a Moroccan Hammam at a luxurious Spa close by & also arranged for a taxi to Essouira. It was like getting 5 star hotel concierge services at this small boutique hotel. The owner has 2 helpers who are very very helpful as well.

The only let down was that the bathroom in our room (lavender themed) was very small. The wash basin was carved out of a small wall and didnt have any room to brush or use the basin per se. But our friends stayed in the room next door (ummm, guess it was the cinnamon themed one) and it was just beautiful with a large moroccan shower and huge basin. Would highly recommend this place!

Room Tip: Avoid the lavender room, its washbasin is so small, its practically useless. Try to book the cinnamo...

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.
