Riad Laksiba was recommended to us by friends and definitely didn't disappoint. We stayed here for a family birthday in Feb and had a wonderful stay! Adil & Hamid were fantastic hosts and were so welcoming and helpful with any requests we had. We didn't spend too much time in the Riad as there is so much to see, but the breakfast were a great start to each day! The location (although a 20in walk to the main square) was good as you felt like you were escaping the madness of the souks. My only negative comment is that we couldn't get the heating to work in our rooms so was quite chilly in the evenings. However this didn't ruin our stay and would definitely return in warmer clients.
I had a wonderful stay at Riad Laksiba in 2012 and returned with my fiancé and his brother and wife for another stay. The Riad is beautifully decorated, the staff are very attentive and it's an easy 20 minute walk from the main square and a number of key attractions. It's the perfect place to stay for an authentic Moroccan experience with a relaxed vibe and first class service.
My wife and I stayed at the Riad Laksiba with my brother and his fiancé in Feb 2015. We found the accommodation and location of this Riad to be excellent. The highlight has to be the staff. Both Hamid and Adil were both welcoming, informative and helpful. Really made the whole experience a pleasure. Regardless if this is your first visit to Marrakech or not this is a superb base for your explorations.
We were a group of ladies staying at this Riad and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We couldn't have been better looked after by Hamid and Abdul, and the ladies who cooked breakfast. We didn't spend a lot of time in the Riad as there was too much exploring to do - we may however have found it a bit small had it been fully occupied. The roof terrace was a pleasant place to sit in the sunshine, however there is a stable opposite which does have an aroma! You really are in the heart of Marrakesh staying in the Medina and we had a wonderful experience.
Our first visit to Morocco and Marrakech. This was to be a short 3 night break together with another couple. We arranged to rent the whole Riad for the time there, which was both cost effective and it felt extra special. As a previous reviewer put it , this is a back street gem. Very convenient for both wandering the Medina streets whilst being just a short walk to the Bab Ksiba gate for access to the ewer parts of the city. The property itself reflects the architecture and atmosphere of the Kasbah. It was comfortable, interesting and well maintained. The roof terrace was used each day for relaxing and chilling out between exploring, with great view across the rooftops and the sunset. Also watch out for the Storks that nest on the old buildings.
Worth special note is the attention that Abdo, Abdelhamid, Nadia and Raja provide to the guests, offering a personal touch with nothing too much for them to assist with. In particular the cookery presentation with Lamb Tangia and Lemon Chicken Tagine which we prepared in the morning and ate in the evening was a memorable experience
All in all 100% satisfied and thoroughly recommended. Laksiba - ' the little house in the Kasbah ' well worth checking out.
