Fantastic Riad in Heart of Marrakesh!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Riad Dar Saba! Jean-Phillipe was very helpful and communicative from reservation to check-out. His onsite Manager, Ayoub, was also extremely friendly and helpful, making us feel right at home.

The Riad is in the heart of Marrakesh - this is great for when you're on foot, walking to and through the medina; this is also tricky if you're driving in. GPS will lead you through some very narrow roads and ultimately end at an opening/square where many cars are parked - this is where you'll need to park and where you'll need to call Ayoub. The Riad is only a 3 min walk from the parking area so Ayoub came out to meet us. We left our car there during our stay (about 60 Dirhams for 2 nights) and it was secure.

The walls are surprisingly thin for how thick they are, but it's nothing that should be of concern (if you're a light sleeper, bring earplugs). The rooms are very comfortable and exactly what you expect from a riad. Breakfast was simply, yet tasty and their dinner menu looked (and smelled) delicious.

Overall a great place to stay in Marrakesh and we would definitely go back!

We had a great time in the riad der Saba. We were greeted warmly and very kindly. The table was set with taste and good food. The staff is perfect and helpful and the cozy rooms in a very nice environment. A perfect place to visit MArrakesh

Lovely stay at Riad Dar Saba

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely Riad with friendly customer service. We were greeted with delicious Moroccan mint tea served in the beautiful courtyard, just outside our room. The riad is conveniently located to easily explore the medina. The room was small, but beautiful, and breakfast, included in the price, was great and beautifully presented. I would return to this lodging and would recommend it to anyone else considering a trip to Marrakech.

zeer prettig verblijf in Riad Dar Saba

  • 4 of 5

Wij zijn met twee gezinnen in de kerstvakantie 3 nachten in Riad Dar Saba geweest en zijn hier zeer tevreden over. Met 12 personen hadden we alle 6 kamers tot onze beschikking en een gezamenlijke ruimte waar we thee konden drinken, het ontbijt geserveerd kregen, spelletjes speelden en op oudjaars avond een heerlijk 3 gangen diner gegeten hebben (een aanrader om een keer in het Riad te eten, iets prijziger dan in de Medina, maar erg lekker en ruime porties!). De ontvangst in het Riad was prettig, niet opdringerig, maar heel behulpzaam als dat nodig was. We hebben overdag prachtig weer gehad, maar warme kleding is 's avonds wel nodig in de gezamenlijke ruimte ( dit is eigenlijk de binnenplaats van het Riad). Het Riad ligt aan de rand van de Medina, je loopt er zo in! kortom, zeer tevreden en een adres om te onthouden als we weer Marrakesch bezoeken!
