Really nice our stay in Riad Dar Massaï. The best I would say is the charming and attentive staff. Yousef and his mother were very welcoming and helpful at all times. But the beauty of this riad wasn't only the staff. There rooms were neat and comfortable. well situated and wonderful breakfast. The only "bad thing" is that the hotel...

Our stay at the Riad Dar Massai was wonderful. We ended up checking in late due to being held up at the airport. When we arrived we were welcomed into the amazing sanctuary and offered mint tea and dinner. The tangine was so delicious, it was so easy to instantly relax in the central shared area of the Riad with...

Stayed here for 3 nights as a present to my mum for her 50th birthday, everything was perfect, cannot recommend this place highly enough. Youseef had a taxi collect us from the airport which was cheaper than you would be charged if did yourself from airport, highly recommended letting Youseef and the team cook for you, was such a tasty...

A quiet hidden gem at the Kasbah. Perfect retreat after a hard day of haggling in town. Really wonderful staff, friendly and professional. I would recommend it to anyone looking for something private, homely and somewhat different from the usual large hotel chain accommodation.

My friend and I stayed at the Riad Dar Massai for 5 nights. Everything was great! Youssef is such a nice person. Everytime we asked him for advice or to organize something, he did it right away. The rooms are very nice, lovely and clean. We always had breakfast on the little rooftop and it was fantastic. Excellent coffee and...

Once you have actually found this Riad in a maze of narrow alleyways it is beautiful inside. We had the room on the top floor, which was perfect and traditionally decorated in a modern african theme. There are no views from the rooftop terrace, but it does get sun all day long, which is great. The food at the Riad...

Although we didn't like the location of Dar Massai, this little Dar is quaint. The room we booked was rather small but clean. We tried one of their special meals which we loved but we found it a bit overpriced camparing it to the prices outside. We tried to book a day trip to the waterfalls but the hotel staff...

This small riad nestles inside the Medina in Marrakech not far from the main square. Our taxi dropped us close by and we walked the final 200m up a narrow lane with our bags carried in a wheeled cart sent by the riad. A pot of hot mint tea is the usual welcome for guests in Morocco and this was...
