Comfortable and adequate
Generally a good experience. Be forewarned...THEY DO NOT ACCEPT CREDIT CARDS. Room amenities were fairly limited. Mini bar was empty and no bottled drinking water in rooms. Did not try the restaurant but read favorable reviews. Simple but ample free breakfast on the rooftop terrace was great. VERY friendly staff. Room could have been a little cleaner but I wasn't expecting a Ritz Carlton. Very reasonably priced.

Great location- Great riad.
We stayed 5 nights at the riad. When out AC stopped working , we were moved to another room with no problem. We even booked an extra night so we could stay in a different room too. Each one is different and special in its own way. The staff were great and always smiling. They even served up breakfast during Ramadan for us inaccustomed to how it works. The location was spot on. Easy to find in and out of the best part of the city. Easy to get a taxi. And not a two mile trek through labyrinth medina to find it. Beautiful interior to come home to.

Lovely little stay
We really enjoyed our short stay at Riad Mumtaz Mahal. The room is beautifully decorated. Breakfast is very nice up on the terrace. And the Riad is in a great location.

Like staying in a palace
This was our second stay at Mumtaz Mahal - both booked through On both occasions, the Riad did NOT know that we'd booked a specific room and I don't know if the fault lies with or with MM but it's not acceptable to offer people the option to choose a room and then not honour that. Luckily after one night in another room, we were able to move to the one we'd booked. I love this place. The total 'over-the-top' decor, the enormous beds, the marble bathrooms are all delightful. Breakfast on the roof is ok but nothing exciting. They could do with putting in a bit more shade as even in December we were roasting at 9.30 in the morning. We love this place and when the price is good, it will always be on our shortlist. But I recommend to write to the MM ahead of your trip and reconfirm your chosen room.
