It was just excellent--no problems. The review thing thinks I should say more, but that's all I have to say. Why must it take more than two hundred characters to say that it is good? We particularly liked the house bunting

Riad Basma is a small, quiet, clean and welcoming guesthouse only a short walk from the central square. The owner, Khadisha, did all in her power to make our stay a pleasant one, and I recommend the hotel without hesitation to anyone looking for a peaceful stay in a city that can become overwhelming.

This riad is very charming, with lovely hosts! They give really good advice for you stay in Marrakech. Absolutely fair price and a perfect location direct in the medina. You only need some help to find it, coming there the first time. Thanks!

This riad with its rooms, courtyard, terrace is just lovely. We felt comfortable and also safe during our stay. The service was great and we got very helpful advices for our trips. If I would spend more time in Marrakech, I would choose the place again. Many Thanks, Michaela

We had a really great time in Marrakech, and much of that was thanks to the excellent customer service we received at the Riad Basma. The owners were extremely helpful (including changing money for us) and the trips we went on (to Essaouira and the Atlas mountains) were top-notch as well. Our room was lovely - very romantic - and...

Due to a change of plan in our travelling schedule, the initial riad we used to stay in was fully booked and had recommended us Riad Basma instead. Before going the price was already agreed (inc. Taxes) but when it came to payment time, the lady managing the place decided otherwise and without clarifying the prices didn't include AC, which...

Beautiful riad, with great charasmatic and clean rooms. The two ladies running it were very helpful. We had a great stay. We booked the 2 day tour to the saharah through the hotel. It was ok, but don't do it if you hate a lot of driving in one day. It took about 10 hours to get there!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Riad Basma is a nice and relaxing place, placed in the medina of Marrakech a few minutes walking only from the main square Jemaa el Fnaa and the souks (markets)The Riad is composed of 5 double rooms (Iris, Perla, Ambar, Agata and Zafiro) each one equipped of an en-suite bathroom, a central Patio decorated with Moorish furniture, a nice living room with TV and DVD player and an open air living room corner cool in summer time and very cosy during winter season.The Riad also has a nice terrace where to enjoy breakfast under the Berber tent or simply sunbathing and drinking a refreshing cold-hot Mint tea.The typical Moroccan style that has been used for the details and furniture gives to this Properties a real Moroccan soul.We are located close to the main square Jemaa el Fnaa about 3 minutes walking, once you are on the square ask for derb Dabachi and count 3 small streets (derbs) on the right turn right and keep on until nr. 22. ... more   less
