A very convenient and quiet location, a block from the Jamaa-el-Fna with all its activity, shops, restaurants, street life. Lovely roof-top lounge area for rest, reading, a beer, a chat. Friendly, helpful staff. To help a taxi driver from the train station find Riad Balkisse, tell him it's located just behind the Hopital Riad al Mokha.

Nice place, friendly staff and close to the centre of the city. We would return every time again when looking for a place to stay in Marrakech. Pick up from airport worked out as agreed. Pick up good for first time in Marrakech, as a bit hidden.

Cars cannot get to the front door but our airport transfer AtoB called the Riad and a member of Riad staff met us and helped with the luggage. The riad itself is close to...
