Clean, great host, gave us info on how not to be tortured by hagglers on the street, close to square, good spot!!!
The staff welcomed me with a comfy seat and a Moroccan mint tea. They gave me a quiet room on the top floor which was clean and beautifully decorated. Breakfast was delicious and the morning of my tour, one staff prepared me breakfast even though it was really early. Great location to visit marrakech tourist attractions.
I had a hard time finding it as it is down an ally and not all cab drivers know it's location. People nearby were very helpful and friendly though.
Very quiet and comfortable place to stay. I really enjoyed staying at Riad Balkisse Very friendly staff, very helpfull, thank you again. The rooms are spacious and clean. Great breakfast on the terrace with lots of freshly pressed orange juice.... Location about 2 minutes stroll to Jema el Fna and about 3 min from the Souk , so no problem with getting anywhere on foot.
Friendly pleasant accomodation
Great location and very helpful staff. Clean and great value for money.
Bad quality of sleep, it's very noisy and the wifi doesn't work upstairs and it's too noisy downstairs. If you book here make sure to ask for a second floor room.
The Riad is in the middle of the Medina in a quiet neighborhood just few minutes from Djema El Fna. The breakfast was delicious and the host very helpful. Thanks to Reece and Ibrahim for taking care of us.
We stayed here for two days with friends so used both available rooms. Very welcoming and helpful. Rooms were spacious and as described. We would stay again.
The courtyard on entering was beautiful. It was quiet and calm which considering the noise in marrakech is a good thing. Right beside the medina too
Location was close but not too close and therefore, it was quiet.
Arranged for car rental and took advantage of me by taking a commission....by not returning deposit amount....Watch out......
The place is lovely, very easy to find and about 2 minutes to Jema el Fna. Very quiet and confortable. The host Foad was very nice and helpful. An excellent option in Marrakech, I highly recommend.
Clean. Quiet. Very nice staff. Very nice breakfast. Very central and great location. Simple but beautiful Riad.
The water in the bath tub is a little stuck. The WIFI does not work for an evening.
From arrival to departure Foad the manager and Driss have done such a fantastic job at making this a truly memorable place to stay. We loved our time at Riad Balkisse and very much hope to return in the future. Thank you to Foad for everything.
The early check-in we were offered, superb service from the manager. Kris on the other hand was phenomenal, helpful and knowledgeable. I would definitely come here with my husband and would most certainly recommend this accommodation to every single visitor to Morocco! A clean, welcoming establishment without fault!
Although night manager was not helpful enough. He did not know enough about the Souks and where attractions are. He did not help us with our bags coming down the staircase, and was not generally displayed a lack of service.
Easy to find from central square. Very helpful staff with excellent English.
Natural light in bedroom very poor due to coloured glass
Amazing riad, very quiet and relax. Staff, service and food are very good.
Location: unbeatable – right next to Jema el fna. Staff: very professional and personable – with a special mention to Foad and Driss, who both went the extra mile to make our stay special. Rooms: not particularly large, but well appointed, comfortable and cozy. Breakfast: generous. We will be back! Loved it.
Thank you so much to all the staff for lovely few nights stay
Right near the main square. Helpful staff who helped plan out our itinerary for the long weekend. Would definitely go back! :)
Incredibly nice and helpful staff, prime location 5 min walk to soulks/city center, clean, AC
This is Riad was perfect! We arrived and net Fouad the host of the riad who was extremely helpful and friendly with whatever we needed! The rooms were very nice, clean and spacious. The breakfast was beautiful in the mornings, enough to keep you going for a few hours. Only 2 mins walk to main square with restaurants and shops. Overall perfect experience at this Riad!
-Location was great -Breakfast was nice -The riad is beautiful
-Wifi was not working in the rooms and in general the connectivity was bad. On the last day I wanted to check my train connections and next hotel address etc and the internet was just not working, when I complained they said it cannot be fixed! So I had could not get some of the important information for my further travel. Was quite inconvenient! - I had a friend visiting me one day and they did not let him into the riad (I am culturally sensitive but do not accept moral policing, especially from people who are in tourism business!!)
We had a very nice stay in this ryad. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful, explaining everything about the city. The ryad is fine, everything works and the beds are comfortable. It is a short walk to jema el fna which is ideal because driving around town and, especially, parking is problematic. Would definitively recommend this place.
Stayed here for a week and was happy with service provided.5 Mins from jemna el fna and souks.sheets and towels changed daily.must thank fouad and especially driss for his help and advice throughout .around the area is bit dirty but better than some other areas we seen whilst there.didnt have any problems other than constant hassle of people trying to sell something or get you to go somewhere.best to prebook a taxi from airport with the riad as it would be hard to find on your own if first time .good breakfast each morning.
The constant bad smell in the medina area and being constantly hassled by people.be prepared.
near to city center, clean and typical morrocan hotel
We stayed one night at this ryad and were very satisfied with everything, staff was very friendly and helpful, the location is convenient, 2 mins walking to Jema el fnaa. All in all a good experience.
