If you're looking for a place to stay with traditional decor, spot-on-perfect hospitality and close proximity to everything then this is it. Riad Altair is beautifully designed with large, clean rooms, a lovely courtyard and an incredible view from the roof. The service that the staff provided made us feel like we were very important people and we especially loved...

Wonderful little inn in the middle of the old city. We were welcomed warmly by the owners and given delicious mint tea upon our arrival. A traditional Moroccan house with a central courtyard, each room is beautifully furnished and private. Our room had a huge bathroom with a great soaking tub. The rooftop is outfitted with very comfortable lounges and...

My friend and I arrived on Saturday 21 July which happened also to be the first day of Ramadan and the temperature was 47 degrees. The perfect Riad lies within the Medina and is perfectly placed for walking to so many of the tourist highlights that you have been dreaming about before coming to Marrakech. The road outside where we...

Wasn't sure what to expect about the riad or Marrakech. I had an impression that the Medina covered a smaller area and Marrakech was more cosmopolitan. Firstly the riad. It is a slight walk to the square and souks but nothing of concern. It was clearly loved by the owners and staff. They can't do enough for you and the...

My wife and I were on a 6 day holiday booked through British Airways to celebrate our anniversary of our 1st year of marriage and we could not have asked for anything more romantic!

My boyfriend and I have just returned to rainy London following three nights at Riad Altair. Having read previous reviews I had realised it might be a bit difficult to find (like most prebooked places in Marrakech) and we had to pay someone to show us the way. However, once inside the Riad any troubles were completely forgotten. The courtyard...

We stayed 4 nights in Riad Altair last week and found all staff very helpful and 3 key people who spoke very good English -- a great help coming from Australia. Most Riads have a central pool in which you can take a dip but not dive or leap into !! It is in the Medina or old walled city...
