Samsara is a beautiful beautiful Riad. The interior is calm and cool and the whole Riad has been lovingly restored. The staff are wonderful. Food exceptionally good - lovely breakfast and wonderful coffee. The birds play and squabble in the courtyard at twilight and sing a loud and joyful dawn chorus. The location is good - easy to get taxis...

A short walk takes you quickly to the fascinating old souks, fondouks and sights of this colourful city. You are also close to the local cafes and restaurants, where, after a busy...

This is a gorgeous and welcoming place where we felt most relaxed and welcomed. The food prepared by the lovely Milouda was delicious and served on a beautiful table scattered with rose petals. Rooms are spacious with large beds and crisp white linens. A delight.

Perfect. It is an exemple of how a real moroccan guest house would be.Everything in the Riad is beautiful. The place is in the heart of the medina (easy to reach), Miluda (riad's governess) is very kind and her food is very very good. We found in Riad Samsara the warmest welcome in Morocco. Thank you so much.
