Wow! This Riad is AMAZING!!! It has been the highlight of our trip to Morocco. Truly the best service we have ever received from a hotel. My husband and I travel often and have been all over the world. The service and attention to detail at this hotel is unparalleled. Alex and Yasmin have gone above and beyond to provide...

Riad Le Calife is a lovely Riad in heart of the Medina. Nice rooms and and friendly staff. 3 star for one major reason and a few others: My mom and I were aggressively reprimanded upon our arrival by Alex the manager so we have a bad taste in our mouths. He kind've shamed my mom for a few minutes...

Just an amazing overall experience. Stayed for 2 weekend nights in March. Room (we were in the Amethyst Room) was clean, lovely and comfortable; location was very good, just about a 5 minute walk from the Medina, and easy car/cab access. But this all pales beside the service. First of all, we mistakenly reserved the wrong days, and did not...

This riad is a charmingly decorated riad with fabulous decor! The hosts clearly put a lot of time and love into the renovation of the building. Well-situated within the medina walls, it's just a short walk from a major thoroughfare, which makes it very easy to navigate to/from. If you do have trouble with directions, the hosts will be happy...

Well the two owners are not only wonderful hosts but they seem to care about their guests. The service here is excellent. My room the diamond suite was spacious. Maybe my only complaint could be breakfast but then again what would my complaint be? Would I stay here again, yes?

This is a very charming and beautiful Riad. We really enjoyed our stay here. The staff are so helpful and friendly. The breakfast was great. The location was perfect. This Riad is at the edge of the madina. It was very easy to get in and out of the old madina.

Yasmine is Moroccan, Alex is French, and together they have created a beautiful boutique hotel which combines the best of both cultures. The décor is exquisite, colourful and considered. We had the Ruby suite on the top floor, sumptuously decorated, with ruby glass in the high windows so it was like waking up in a church! The attention to detail...

My husband, daughter and I enjoyed this riad for 5 nights at the end of 2016 and welcomed in the New Year with a lavish dinner enjoyed by guests of the riad. This riad has the feel of a luxurious home with collected pieces spread throughout. We enjoyed the Emerald suite while our daughter enjoyed the Opaline room- both with...
