Good quality Riad
I enjoyed my stay at this Riad. Great staff whom ensure comfort, friut basket in the room, tea and treats on check in, great terrace breakfast... Only negatives are it’s difficult to find initially with google maps having a different location given and if airport transport is arranged through the hotel you will easily pay more than double of standard 60dh Médina to airport (or even gouged 80dh like I did) taxi fare. Just hire when you need them instead of arranging through the hotel.

A very special place.
Riad Samsara is a beautiful gem of a hotel, the exquisite decor, the dawn and evening birdsong and a very special breakfast all contributed to making it the most wonderful oasis amidst the noise, bustle and choas that is the Medina. Jaquelin, Melouda and Latifa are a brilliant team and make it a very special place.

lovely riad in Marrakesh
The building is incredible--it is three levels with two salons and a courtyard with a fountain on the first floor, three rooms--each one decorated differently on the second floor, and a roof top terrace on the third floor. The owner has lovingly restored it all and the craftsmanship is amazing. The bed was comfortable and the room and bathroom spacious. Breakfast is served on the lovely terrace with homemade yogurt and jam and crepes and fresh squeezed oj each day. Also the wifi worked well and the manager booked us a great tour guide and a ride to the Atlas Mountains on our last day. She also lent us a phone in case we got lost. The staff are hardworking and lovely. We would stay again.

Tranquil escape in the north of the medina
We stayed here for 6 nights in early Feb. We were collected from the airport by pre-arrangement which was a good decision as finding the riad for the first time is difficult. The hotel is beautiful and smells amazing of fleur d'oranger, amber, jasmine and musk. On arrival, we were brought into the courtyard and offered mint teat and Moroccan pastries. The staff were very welcoming and spoke excellent English. They offered us a free upgrade to a suite which were delighted to accept. The rooms are decorated in traditional Berber style and give a true Moroccan experience. The bathroom was large and had both a shower and bath. Toiletries, towels and dressing gowns were supplied. There were tea/coffee making facilities in the room, bottled water and a fruit basket. Breakfast could be served on the roof terrace, in one of the downstairs salons or in the room. As the weather was good, we chose the roof terrace. Breakfast varied slightly each day and included a good selection of bread, Moroccan pancakes, croissants, fresh fruit and jams and yoghurt. I require a gluten free diet and this was well-catered for with freshly made gluten free bread and pancakes. Once you know the way to the riad it is easy to find and as two lone female travellers it was safe to walk back at night, although we found that after 10.30pm it started to get very quiet in the area. We were given a mobile phone woth a number to contact if we ever got lost or ran into trouble. We would definitely recommend!

Amazing stay
Great stay! Rooms are great and the Riad it self is out of a fairytale book. Breakfast was included, very Moroccan style with coffee, tea, yogurt and a spread of breads, pastries and toppings. Some tips: - Riad Samsara is located in a more local part of the Medina and at first Marrakesh can be a bit overwhelming, but we (two blond girls) did not feel scared or were not harrassed even during the evenings. Just know where you are going and don't engage - We booked a airport transfer through the riad, that is higher cost than the 'normal price' but it was much easier as the driver took us right to the front door. - Theres not many restaurants next to the Riad, so considering booking a dinner for the first night at the Riad especially if you are arriving later. There are local stores/kiosks very close for necessities such as water and snacks etc - We were afraid that it would be cold (it can be very chilly in January), but the A/C kept us really warm in the room :)

Non molto facile da trovare (neanche per i tassisti). L'odore dei gatti stona un po' con la generale pulizia della struttura

Merveilleux riad
Un séjour parfait au merveilleux riad Samsara. Le lieu est magique et typique et l'équipe de Bouchra est vraiment attentionnée et aux petits soins. Le petit déjeuner sur la terrasse ensoleillée du toit est copieux et délicieux. Le riad est bien situé, dans un quartier résidentiel calme de la Medina a environ 15-20 minutes de marche des principales attractions touristiques. Je n'ai qu'une envie c'est d'y retourner.

Unglaublich schön
Wir haben den Aufenthalt sehr genossen. Der Empfang war herzlich, der Service super und alles sehr sauber und gepflegt. Besonders hervorheben möchten wir die Freundlichkeit und Herzlichkeit von der Riad-Managerin Latifa und den übrigen prima Mitarbeitern, die sehr um unser Wohl bedacht waren. Ein ganz besonderes Erlebnis war das uns angebotene und extra für uns zubereitete Dinner im Riad. Sehr traditionell und lecker! Wir kommen wieder!
