The Riad was very comfortable with spacious bedrooms and relaxing communal spaces especially the roof terrace. Hasna and Khadija were the most friendly and helpful hosts possible with answers to all our questions and invaluable tips and suggestions. They provided us with a marvellous cookery class and Hasna joined us for dinner on the roof terrace. Unforgettable. At their recommendation...

This is Riad is incredibly beautiful. Our ensuite room had everything we needed, was very clean and was extremely quiet. There is air conditioning, wifi and the staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about Marrakech. We were really happy with our stay. We didn't have breakfast, but the chai was incredible. There is a quiet roof top terrace with a...

We stayed in this riad for a couple of days. The rooms are beautiful, it's clean and the riad has a nice rooftop. The hostes speaks english very well and is really helpful. Breakfast changes every day and is nice too! A great place to stay, within a few minutes of the djemnaa el-fna. Highly recommended!

My partner and i stayed at Riad Basma in early May for a week and it couldn't have been a better choice. We were picked up at the airport by arrangement with our hosts and brought right to the door.The riad is so close to Djamaa al Fna but you would never know it as it was so quiet and...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for five nights and we were more than impressed. When we arrived we were put into a lovely room but we were then offered a larger room free of charge which was just as lovely. The entire riad is decorated to perfection; from the sinks to the artwork to the roof terrace, everything is...

Not recommended, here is the list why. The place itself is a lovely, ethnic-style riad with a lot of colours and ornaments which make it a cozy place to stay - and the only accomodation in Morocco where I found a hairdryer in the room. Unfortunately almost everything else was under the level we expected. Breakfast tends to be very...

Relative comparison with the other guest houses that we have stayed in during our trip to Morocco clearly place this one at the rear. Nice, confortable, and well decorated place, but with several disappointing details. Our street-facing room was too noisy during the night, we had to put cushions on the window for sleeping. Breakfast was the most disapointing point,...

Just a short walk along an alleyway, off one of the main thoroughfares to Jemaà El Fna, lies the peace and calm of Riad Basma. My room on the first floor was traditionally decorated, with some lovely tiling and wonderful artworks. (In fact there are many beautiful oil paintings hanging throughout the riad.) It was extremely comfortable and very clean....

My wife, son (14) and I arrived in Marrakesh from Essaouira on Dec. 30 at 6 PM. Place Jemma el Fna was in full swing, so the taxi driver dropped us off outside the square and a boy guided us on a busy 15 minute walk through the crowd as we pulled our bags, eventually down Derb Debachi, and down...

It was just excellent--no problems. The review thing thinks I should say more, but that's all I have to say. Why must it take more than two hundred characters to say that it is good? We particularly liked the house bunting

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Riad Basma is a nice and relaxing place, placed in the medina of Marrakech a few minutes walking only from the main square Jemaa el Fnaa and the souks (markets)The Riad is composed of 5 double rooms (Iris, Perla, Ambar, Agata and Zafiro) each one equipped of an en-suite bathroom, a central Patio decorated with Moorish furniture, a nice living room with TV and DVD player and an open air living room corner cool in summer time and very cosy during winter season.The Riad also has a nice terrace where to enjoy breakfast under the Berber tent or simply sunbathing and drinking a refreshing cold-hot Mint tea.The typical Moroccan style that has been used for the details and furniture gives to this Properties a real Moroccan soul.We are located close to the main square Jemaa el Fnaa about 3 minutes walking, once you are on the square ask for derb Dabachi and count 3 small streets (derbs) on the right turn right and keep on until nr. 22. ... more   less
