Excellent food and wonderful people, beautiful hotel! Make us feel like princess, friendly manager! We visit the Medina in the afternoon and it was an experience for me to see so many people from different places.

It's a beautiful place to stay - I felt like a queen for a day They great you with a cup of mint tea. It has a great swimming pool. It's like an oasis in the busy medina. Great service. The staff is all friendly. Great experience. It's close to shops and restaurants.

This riad has the most stunning courtyard with a central fountain, beautiful mosaics and delicate plaster work. Our rooms off the main courtyard were spacious and beautifully presented. Breakfast was huge, with pastries, pancakes, eggs, fruit and more, and varied each day. The staff was friendly and attentive. What more could you ask for. There were no negatives at all.

The nicest hotel I have ever stayed at: great decoration and furnishings and art. Hard to find in you enter via the Bab Boujaloud, but just 200 meters from the Batha Fountain taxi stand. Great food, nice hosts that speak Arabic, French, and English.

We stayed in Riad Yacout for two nights in August. The riad was booked for us through a private tour company in Morocco. The riad is absolutely beautiful -- the feeling when you first enter is unreal and you feel like you've been transported into a different era. What takes this riad to the next level is the manager, Mohamed,... More

Best service ever! My daughter and I just spent three nights at Riad El Yacout. The Riad is lovely, although the wifi was spotty at times. Breakfast was varied, substantial and good; dinners were average. Having said this, I'd stay there again without hesitation. The service is simply outstanding, probably the best I've had anywhere in the world. The manager,... More

What an amazing place! We stayed here for 2 nights with our four children as part of a 10 day trip across Morocco in July. Mohamed and the team could not have been more helpful, and nothing was too much trouble. The location was perfect and the food beautiful. We could not recommend Riad El Yacout highly enough.

I stayed here 2 nights as part of a 5-day trip to Morocco. This location was selected by the tour company. The staff was very attentive and helpful.

We stayed in the Charifa suite for two nights, and it literally was like staying in a palace. It was huge and beautiful. (The manager told us that a Jordanian princess stayed there and also Bono.)

The public areas are stunning! The tile work and furnishings are fantastic - wonderful areas to sit and relax, eat, and take photographs. I couldn't help wondering about the family that built it so long ago. The food is excellent, too. Our room was in the area next to the pool. It was on the small side, but large enough,... More
