... mentioned previously Morocco really was the destination that just kept giving and we would highly recommend, if you have not already done so, adding Morocco to your bucket list.
Highlights of the High Atlas and Marrakech:
- The diverse array of visual splendour as we crossed the passes of the High Atlas
... prices our waiter was wearing a nice black suit and tie.
Having stayed as long as we could at the restaurant we decided to just head for the train station. On the way we realised we were actually quite close to Starbucks which was quickly deemed a much nicer place to wait out the day than the train station. Surprisingly it was one of the nicer Starbucks coffees I have had which was probably due to the fact that they had flat whites on the menu.
... in another taxi which finally took us to where we were meant to be. He charged us a bomb but luckily it only converted to about £4! We picked up some beers from the supo then headed straight for the pool, desperate for a swim! We spent the afternoon by the pool and ended up staying out there till late just having a few drinks and chatting with people from the tour as it was our last night together. Heaps of them live in London so hopefully we can all catch up again ...
... more in your face! We started walking towards the riad to use the swimming pool as it was just so hot and sticky. Starting to walk we once again got a little lost which is easily done, jumping in a taxi we showed him the map of our destination having a vague idea of where we were going. The taxi driver headed in completely the wrong direction! Trying to explain he spoke no English so we jumped out at the next traffic lights and walked the rest of the way. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Riad Boussa Marrakech
Un lugar acogedor, agradable y elegante en el corazón de Marraqués
Conocimos este hotel Riad a través de otro que estaba completo y tuvimos suerte de encontrar éste. El Riad Boussa es elegante, colorido y tranquilo, además se encuentra en el corazón de Marraqués. Cuando entras y cierras la puerta tras de sí, no puedes creer que estés en una ciudad tan caótica pues todo a tu alrededor es agradable, cómodo, el ambiente es tranquilo y te sientes como si estuvieras en tu propia casa. Las habitaciones son muy elegantes, cada una con su propia decoración y distintivos colores. La propietario es una señora francesa, muy amable, a quien le encanta charlar con los clientes mientras saborea un té de menta, bien sentada en un gran sillón del patio o en la terraza del ático. En definitiva, una experiencia fantástica.
Great Find- First Class Accommodation
We were lucky enough to be recommended to contact Brigitte and Bruno at Riad Boussa as the Riad where we originally intended to stay was full. We were immediately impressed by Brigittes quick response to our emails. A driver met us at the airport - highly recommended as the Riad not easy to find at night unless you know where you are going. It is located in a tiny backstreet in the heart of the Medina so it is not accessible by car. We had to walk a little way with the driver through narrow dimly lit alleys and were a bit concerned as to where we were heading. We were thrilled however when the door opened and we saw what a lovely place it was. The photos on the webpage do not do it justice. Would recommend dinner (typical Moroccan dishes) prepared and served by Samira and her sister Miriam. Our room, like the rest of the Riad, was tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The candles, relaxing Moroccan music and fresh flowers all added to the peaceful atmosphere. The hospitality was excellent and we were made to feel very much at home from the moment we arrived. Breakfast consisted or fresh orange juice, Moroccan bread,pancakes and pastries, jams and yogurt. Bruno made sure our every need was attended to and we were offered delicious mint tea (best we tasted during our stay) and biscuits whenever we sat down to relax. Riad Boussa is very conveniently situated, just a stone's throw from the Souks and a 5-minute walk from Place Jemaa el Fna Square. Hope to return again later this year so do not want to recommend it too highly in case there are no rooms available!
Für mich, eines der besten Riads in Marrakech!!
Wir arbeiten schon seit vielen Jahren immer wieder in Marrakech und haben schon in den unterschiedlichsten Riads gewohnt. Dies ist mit Sicherheit das am liebevollsten renovierte Riad in ganz Marrakech!!
Bruno, Samira und Miriam finden genau den Punkt immer für einen da zu sein, ohne aufdringlich zu stören!
Ein Abendessen im Riad Boussa sollte man sich genausowenig entgehen lassen, wie eine Massage von Samira!!
Ein absolut empfehlenswerter Platz... wir kommen sicher wieder!!
Fantastic ! Authentic Marrakech Experience
This was a real find, situated deep in the Medina but only a few minutes walk from the main square and the bustling souks. Brigitte, Bruno and Samira make you feel at home from the moment you walk through the door until you leave.
The pre-arranged transfer to and form the hotel was a breeze and taxi drivers and porters were friendly.
Although we didn't have an evening meal in the 2 nights we stayed, prefering to go out and about in the city. We did experience the breakfast feast with freshly squeezed orange juice and home cooked delicacies on demand.
The rooms were great - we were 2 adults and a teenager in 2 separate double rooms and had every home comfort we needed.
We will certainly be back for our next visit to Morroco

Quiet and Relaxing
We stayed at Riad Boussa over New Year's for three nights - originally we planned on only two but were perfectly happy to stay an extra night. We stayed in the Limoun room, which has a double bed in a loft over the bathroom. In general the riad seems more suited to couples without kids due to the quietness and romantic feel. As just a couple with no kids, we spent the extra money for the Limoun room because I had a tough time finding any room at a riad to stay during New Years! I was very satisfied with Riad Boussa. It is a beautiful guesthouse (maison d'hotes) with great interior decoration and a warm feel. It was very quiet with only four guest rooms - perfect for couples who want a relaxing, romantic, and quiet stay but probably not the best choice if you're single and want to meet and hang out with a lot of other travelers or if you have loud kids :( - We celebrated New Years at the riad (Djemaa el Fna was very very quiet just before midnight (very surprising to us as we thought it would be a huge party) so we went to the riad), where we were welcomed to join in with a little belly dancing! The food and drinks are terrific, and the few staff at the riad are extremely nice.
Great website: [--]. I was really impressed by all of the websites for the riads in Marrakech - many of them are so much better than most other websites I've seen... If anything, the photos on the Riad Boussa website do not do it justice...
Great location to easily access Place Djemaa el Fna and the souks to the north.
Olivier liked it here!
This is a truly great place to be! Bruno, Brigitte and Samira make you really feel at home in their very tastefully decorated and newly renovated Riad. Each room is individually decorated. Situated in the middle of the buzzing and chaotic old-town of Marrakesh, you immediately find a calm and relaxing atmosphere once back inside this typically Moroccan home. I enjoyed my endless talks with Bruno who became a friend, the charm of Brigitte as well as the exquisite cuisine of Samira, not to mention her massages in the in-house hammam. A place definitely to recommend! When I am back in Marrakesh, this is were I'll stay.

A cousy, friendly and stylish place in the heart of Marrakech
We got to know this Riad through another one that was fully booked and we have been so lucky for this. The Riad Boussa is stylish, colorful and peaceful, juts in the heart of Marrakech. When you enter it and you close the door behind you, you can't believe you are in such a chaotic city, everything around you is nice, comfortable, the atmosphere is calm and you feel like at home. The rooms are very stylish, each with its own distinctive decoration and colors. The owner is a French lady. She is very kind, she enjoys talking to the guests while sipping mint tea either sitting on the large cushions in the patio or on the roof terrace! Definitely a great experience!
J'ai séjourné au Riad BOUSSA au mois de janvier 2007.
Après avoir visité plusieurs sites, j'ai choisi ce riad car j'ai trouvé son site attractif, coloré et agréable à consulter.
Je n'ai pas été déçue. Les photos du site sont vraiment le reflet de la réalité. Pas de trucages ni de mise en scène.
Tout ce que vous voyez est réellement sur place. Donc pas de déception à l'arrivée.
Vous êtes particulièrement bien accueilli par toute l'équipe, Brigitte et Bruno qui ont fait de ce riad un endroit particulièrement bien décoré dans les traditions marocaines et avec le bon goût français et par Samira qui fait tout, de la cuisine 'excellente cuisine marocaine) aux massages (dans le hammam de la maison) et toujours avec le sourire.
Vous vous sentez tout à fait comme chez vous, vous pouvez vous détendre au coin du feu (3 cheminées) et surtout vous reposer dans un endroit particulièrement calme car le riad est situé au fond d'une petite ruelle, et tout ça à 5 mn de la place Jemaa el Fna.
N'hésitez pas à venir séjourner ici.
Vous en repartirez avec un gout de trop peu !!!
Repos du corps et de l'esprit garanti.
Fashionable and cosy!!
This newly opened riad is just 10 min walk from Fna square, but once you are inside, you can really feel at home.We were introduced this riad from a neighbour riad and we were very lucky to stay here.The room is a fusion of morrocan style with french taste, very stylish.Return from chaotic and exotic walk of Souk, this riad gave us peaceful relief.The owner, a french lady , was very friendly and kind. We forgot our belonging in our room and she kindly sent it to us immediately.Not only good value, but also worth staying this new, stylish, cosy riad.We will return again!
