We would definitely stay at riad Altair again. The staff were so friendly, nothing was too much trouble. You were able to freely do whatever you wanted without feeling uncomfortable at the same time knowing you could find someone in moments if you needed anything. We had planned to visit other hotels in the daytime s to use a pool...

Staff were friendly and helpful. Rhiad was atmospheric, clean and well located. Breakfast tasty. Option to eat there in evenings but remember to take your own alcohol as they do not supply . Would recommend.

On arrival I knew I had picked the right place to stay. When I entered the Riad, all of the noise and hustle from the streets disappeared and all of a sudden I was in an oasis of calm. Staff were more like friends who had invited us over to their house for the weekend. Mint tea and macaroons. Room...

We had a short break in late January. Well appointed, clean room, with authentic decor. The relaxing atmosphere, with the free use of the peaceful courtyard, for breakfast, and cosy sitting room for evening meal made it the perfect retreat after a busy day sight seeing in the Medina. All the staff we encountered could not have been kinder and...

Stayed in March with 2 friends. It was the most relaxing place I have stayed at. The staff could not do more for you. They were delightful. The high spot for me was the breakfasts which are the best I have had. Different fresh fruit every day. Really brilliant place. Could not recommend it more highly

Lovely rooms and a great place to stay particularly because the staff could not have been kinder and more helpful. The location is great within walking distance of everywhere in The Medina. Other guests wee nice too! Trips and taxis can be arranged more cheaply and with good quality elsewhere.

Stayed at the fabulous Riad Altair for a week in February and we were absolutely bowled over by how lovely and relaxing it was! We emailed the Riad directly before our trip and they booked a driver to collect us from the airport and we also booked our first nights meal. (had a bit of trouble finding the email address...

Central location, everything really within walking distance from this Riad. The house was absolutely gorgeous and I loved the layout on each floor, with only a few rooms. In all I think there are only 6 rooms in this place, and it really feels like you've stepped into someone's home, with an equally warm welcome. The breakfast every morning was...
