6/10 Good

NIce but ... and a big but
Two stars are deducted from the 5 the property should deserve, for two things. 1) Wrong information in the description, for example: calling the public jacuzzi, a pool; or saying that there is parking on site, to get there you have to walk for more than 150 m of pedestrian alleys, from the nearest street, it is impossible to have “parking on site”. 2) Lack of service policy. Although the staff is kind, the Riad does not think about the client. I share our experience. As soon as we booked, they wrote us offering transportation, we replied telling them we were have car. They never told us the street that goes close to the Riad is close, has been on repair for two months ago, it was impossible to get close by car. I left the car and my wife at 800 m from the Riad went to ask for help, luckily, I found Abdou who help us, they should have warned us about the situation, a set a meeting point. The night before leaving they asked us to pay local taxes and consumption, but they do have cards. Shorting the customer of local currency just before leaving is irresponsible, even more if you have to pay $420 Dirhams (+U$40) for two days.

Lovely riad, well decorated in great condition. Staff were friendly, gracious and hospitable. Only minor improvement could be having a full shower, instead of moveable bath nozzle that you have to hold while bathing.

Outstanding experience for us as a couple staying for 4 nights. It was such a pleasant experience for us that we will remember this for long time. The location is great and the staff are so helpful, polite that they add so much value to the overall great experience. The breakfast is excellent and dinner is outstanding. Arranged transport from/to airport without any problem and two 'day long tours' via the Riad - which turned out to be excellent too.

Really lovely hotel with outstanding staff.
Lovely hotel in a great location. Transfer taxi waiting for us and room just as pictured. The staff were available 24/7 and service fantastic. Just two small gripes: the pillows were not great and on the last day the patio heater was not working so eating in the courtyard was cold (there wasn't really anywhere else). Without these the experience would have been a straight 5* Would I go there again? Absolutely!

Hotel staff very friendly & helpful breakfast very nice room very clean hotel in good position very quiet. Unfortunately near the entrance there is someone sleeping rough would have liked tea/coffee making facilities in room, we didn’t get the room we booked & we paid double the normal rate for hotel to arrange taxis transfer from airport good,return journey was 15 mins late & he didn’t come inside hotel to collect us we had to go out to street, overall the good points didn’t really outweigh the negative expensive for what it is

lack of attention to detail
Some key mistakes and discrepancies between what we booked on Expedia and what we actually received made this less than perfect. Could have been better. But some nice aspects.

Warm and welcoming staff at beautiful riad
Beautiful riad with wonderfully friendly staff. Abdel was great from the moment we booked our room and helped to arrange an airport pickup and dinner the evening we arrived, which was a welcome relief after traveling from Singapore to London and London to Marrakech within a 24-hour period. We stayed in the Syrius room, which was clean and spacious - a wonderful space to return to after exploring the city. Sunrises over the rooftop were chilly but worth it - the prayer calls and birdsong as light filters over the city must be witnessed at least once. Breakfast on the patio was plentiful, varied and always a relaxed affair. The rest of the communal area is also lovely and worth spending some time in. I managed to read a book from start to finish in one sitting! We had wanted to go to the Atlas Moyntains, but Abdel advised us against it due to poor weather forecasts. While this was obviously disappointing, I really appreciated his honesty, as we have been on some holidays were people would have been only too willing to take our money, regardless of whether conditions were suitable. Yassine was another incredibly helpful member of staff. He seemed to have a sixth sense and appeared whenever we had a question, but was otherwise unseen. Things that would make Riad Altair even more special: - Credit card payment availability - Daily mineral water - Gentle reminders for guests to respect other guests, by not being excessively loud
