The location of the hotel was very good and for Marrakesh in a good street to find the hotel (the city is like a labyrinth). I used the hotel for only one night as a stop in Marrakesh. The hotel is very close to the main square and you have lots of shops and restaurants nearby. The room is rather...

Comfortable Riad. The manager, Simon (or Shimon perhaps?) was very helpful and communicative when trying to book in advance. They had working wifi and a cozy little terrace for breakfast. Quite close to the Jema el Fna and areas with many other restaurants.

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.

The place has a nice terrace, where you can spend some nice late evenings. I booked initially the rooms on the last floor, especially for this,...

The riad was really difficult to find as we hired a car, but to be honest I think that's Marrakesh, overall the stay was pleasant enough although we only stayed briefly. The riad was suitable enough for our needs, A little worn in places but a great deal so nothing to complain about the breakfast was just enough to start...

Just spent 7 nights at an amazing Marrakech Riad. It is clean, comfortable, air conditioned and very close to Jamaa El Fnaa (approx. 5 minute walk). 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...

Excellent location minutes away from the main square and many other sights. Daily breakfast was delicious and made fresh every morning. Riad itself was very clean. Staff were always available and willing to help. Overall, great stay in Marrakech at Riad Balkisse!
