To get straight to the point Marrakech wasn't for us, however, this wonderful Riad on the north west corner of the Medina provided nothing but professionalism, warmth, peace and hospitality we craved after braving those crazy streets. Just six rooms, all spacious, cool and beautifully decorated, the Riad is perfectly placed for dashes in to the souks or a stroll...

We had a superior room, on the ground floor (Altair), the decor was simple and the bed really comfortable (if you like a hard mattress, which I swear by!). Because it is a Riad, if you have a room on the ground floor it means that you are next door to the patio/breakfast/dinner area, which is very handy but also...

My family and I spent a fabulous four nights at the Riad Altair as we savoured the sights and sounds of Marrakech. We based our choice on previous Trip Advisor comments and were not disappointed. All the booking procedures were handled professionally by Abdel, who also arranged for a car to pick us up at the airport (highly recommended), as...

Pros: good location and great staff. Cons: - misleading promotional photos. We booked the Superior room for the big bath tub. Unfortunately the hot water tank is not big enough to fill more than 1/5 of the bath tub so unless you enjoy cold baths - don't bother. We spoke to the staff about this and the owner of the...

This is a beautiful accommodation. We arranged collection from the airport which went smoothly. We had a meal on our first evening and it was delicious. They organised a trip to the Atlas Mountains which I would recommend. There is also a hammam around the corner which is worth a visit-book first! Would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful riad with wonderfully friendly staff. Abdel was great from the moment we booked our room and helped to arrange an airport pickup and dinner the evening we arrived, which was a welcome relief after traveling from Singapore to London and London to Marrakech within a 24-hour period. We stayed in the Syrius room, which was clean and spacious -...

Really pleasant staff and good food, but ridiculous taxi fares around Medina. We were charged Dh 150 for a 1km trip that last less than 5minutes. Really put me in a bad mood for my birthday dinner. A joke! Just because I am a tourist and it was my first time in Marrakesh i don't think it is acceptable to...

After a day in stressful Marrakech and you knock the door to get in to the riad, a always smiling woorker will open for you, and you step in to this perfect, clean and peaceful place. The whole riad is kept in a modern arabic style and there is lots of places to relax in there: the ground floor with...

My wife and I have recently returned from a wonderful three nght stay at Riad Altair and would definitely recommend it to others. The Riad itself is lovely and is located within walking distance of all of the main attractions that both the Medina and the modern city have to offer. Despite its central location the Riad is very peaceful...
