    We were the only guests in the riad but this didn't lower the quality of service. The owner was excellent, made us very welcome and made us feel like we were in our home not a riad. The staff were again excellent always ready to help whenever asked.

    The best of the Riad is the behaviour of the pesonal. First day they explain you all (how to move, social habits...). They are always very kind and helpfull.

    - Quite far from the square (20 minutes walk). - The room need a little remodeling. - It would be great if all rooms had TV.

    Very good value for money. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble. The proprietor even organised a taxi to collect me from the airport free of charge. I would definitely stay here again.

    once you find it, everything's perfect. superbe room, friendly owner and staff, wonderful little riad off the beaten track. perfect if you want to stay away from the chaos of the place jemaa and all its surrounding crowded souks. but not too far out either. in the north part of the medina, close to fountain, medrasa and maison de la photographie (lovely to visit), not far from jardin majorelle. nice interior decor (the blue tadlakt bathroom was beautiful), plenty of the a la menthe, very fast wi-fi. this riad has all you can ask while visiting marrakech. will come back. highly recommended. loved the cats!!!

    nothing.

    I stayed here with my adult son for 4 nights and we really enjoyed it. The staff were really helpful, the location amid the hustle and bustle of locals was excellent and the breakfasts were simple but good. It helped that we liked cats as we shared the Riad with several, and would definitely recommend.

    Nothing.

    Tasted the true essence of marrakesh warts and all Staff were extremely helpful. Nothing too much trouble Close to medina and souks Gave us a lift back to airport

    Very busy neighbourhood but this is the reality of day to day living and Moroccan culture Our stay coincided with wet cold weather so sometimes felt a bit cold in room but had blowers so warmed up ok. No televisions in room

    Really charming Ryad in Marrakech. Atmosphere family-like. The owner Jean-Pierre is very friendly, openminded and extremely helpful with everything. It has always been a pleasure to talk with him about everything in Morocco. Finally he gave us a free ride to the railway station.

    The Riad Ida Ou Balou is a perfect Riad to stay in Marrakech, the bathroom and the room were very clean and cleanned daily.The bed in the room was very confortable and the room very good.The breakfast was very good too.The interior courtyard where we had the breakfast a rested after having a long day walking in the city is very confortable and quiet.Jean Pierre the owner was very nice, kind and warm, giving us all kind of advices about the city and giving us free mint tea when we come back to the Riad after visiting the city. The employees who work there are very nice too. Near the riad there are a fantastic place to buy Kefta Sandwiches and all kind of show to buy things.Riad Ida Ou Balou was one of the best experience in Marrakech and a perfect place to stay.If I visit Marrakech,I'll stay in Riad Ida Ou Balou again.

    Hospitality and advice from riad owner and on site manager was very informative, helpful, and reassuring in the marrakesh madness. Quieter location away from central square, although you do need to walk a little or catch a cab. Lovely peaceful downstairs central court for relaxed breakfast, and rooftop shaded lounge area for chilling.

    The best part of the hostel was the staff, Hisham. Very helpfull person. Breakfast is good.

    I don't like to eat sweet things like honey and jam at breakfast, so at least one kind of cheese can make the breakfast richer. It takes 15-20 min. walk to center, not much but some people bother and wants money during walking.

    It was really a perfect stay: nice staff and we felt really welcome. They help you with arranging a lot of things: day trip to essaouira, go to the public hamam, transfer to the airport and so on. Breakfast was delicious! Definitely come back here!

    Jean Pierre (the french owner) and Hisham (the local guy who works for him) looked after us so well when we stayed for them for 5 nights. They gave us advice to make sure we werent totally ripped off by taxi drivers and vendors in the souks ;). Hisham made us more (complementary) Mint teas than we can could count, The rooms were lovely and typically morroccan styled. The best bit though, was the chill out area one the ground floor, perfect for escaping marrakech(which you will need to do). The location is a 20min walk or 3euro taxi to the main square, but i think the neighbourhood was so much freindlier and local that i am so so glad we did not stay too close to the mainsquare. They provided a free transfer from the airport because we stayed 5nights. The breakfast was good, tea, fresh oj , breads and jams. If your more muesli and fruit for brekky kind of people like us, you can also pop down the road for some fruit and yoghurt at the little stores.

    No issues.

    Amazingly located in the middle of bursting real city Marocan life therefore out of often fake touristic spots. In the heart of medina though quiet and home. Cheap all sorts of food just at the doorstep. Absolutely warm and friendly and accommodating staff ready to help at any possibly occasion. Cozy, stylish and comfortable lobby area which is in fact internal garden/swuer. Perfet location, few minutes walk to major attraction such us Ali Ben Yussuf Madrasa, museum of Marrakesh, Museum of Photography, on the way to suks and Jemma el-Fnaa. Definitely recommend that place for people seeking for peaceful and veristic at the same time place in Marrakesh
