We had a short break in late January. Well appointed, clean room, with authentic decor. The relaxing atmosphere, with the free use of the peaceful courtyard, for breakfast, and cosy sitting room for evening meal made it the perfect retreat after a busy day sight seeing in the Medina. All the staff we encountered could not have been kinder and...

Stayed in March with 2 friends. It was the most relaxing place I have stayed at. The staff could not do more for you. They were delightful. The high spot for me was the breakfasts which are the best I have had. Different fresh fruit every day. Really brilliant place. Could not recommend it more highly

Lovely rooms and a great place to stay particularly because the staff could not have been kinder and more helpful. The location is great within walking distance of everywhere in The Medina. Other guests wee nice too! Trips and taxis can be arranged more cheaply and with good quality elsewhere.

Stayed at the fabulous Riad Altair for a week in February and we were absolutely bowled over by how lovely and relaxing it was! We emailed the Riad directly before our trip and they booked a driver to collect us from the airport and we also booked our first nights meal. (had a bit of trouble finding the email address...

Central location, everything really within walking distance from this Riad. The house was absolutely gorgeous and I loved the layout on each floor, with only a few rooms. In all I think there are only 6 rooms in this place, and it really feels like you've stepped into someone's home, with an equally warm welcome. The breakfast every morning was...

We stayed at the Riad Altair for four nights in early February. Given the almost total unanimity of the praise heaped upon it by previous reviewers it is with some trepidation that I venture to sound a note of caution. I should start by saying that there is indeed much good about it. The staff are indeed all delightful and...

just returned from a short break in Marrakesh staying at the wonderful Riad Altair. what a wise choice. Forget the immediate surroundings or the slight difficulty in finding the door, what an oasis of charm and tranquility once inside. They have managed to retain the originality of the old house whilst adding all the needs of the modern day traveller...

Really glad we decided to stay here, this Riad was such a relief to step into after a hard day walking around possibly the maddest city I've been to! The rooms were tastefully decorated, the courtyard was full of charm and the food we ate there was excellent... Make sure you remember which street the Riad is on when entering...

My friend and I stayed here last June and thought this place was lovely. It had a great location for visiting the souks and the square and despite being located opposite a mosque, we were never woken once by the call to prayer first thing. The riad was very luxurious, the rooms were gorgeous as were the communal areas and...
