Riad Boussa

  • Room Type : Twin room
  • Stay Nights : 3 nights
  • Stay Num : 2 people

I chose "Riad Boussa" as an accommodation facility named Riad, that I thought it was beautiful looking at the pictures, that it was close to the main street, that the owner was a French woman and had a sense of security And so on. Since I was Morocco for the first time, I gathered information on the Internet. Riad was a building that refurbished the old mansion cleanly and there were many opinions that riad was much better than ordinary hotel. I thought that I could taste Moroccan culture more than this, I decided on this riad from this reason.

What is the exterior of the hotel? Check entrance and reception

Riyadh entrance. As a characteristic of Riyadh there is a thing that the appearance is quite refreshed. It seems that there is a purpose to protect from foreign enemies because it is an old building. Riyado here is also notable for its appearance only in concrete, and when I first arrived, a bit of anxiety came over.

It was a beautiful riad which was impossible to imagine from the image of the appearance when entering inside. It is fashionable with the interior where French and Moroccan are fused.

There was nothing like the front desk, the Moroccan staff sat on the sofa and served tea and sweets. It was very quiet and was a relaxing space just by hearing the sound of water flowing.

What is the room of the twin room?

There are 5 rooms in all, and it seems that each room has a name. Our room was "Paprika" in the room, like the paprika, it was red as a whole. The room is small, but it is never too narrow. It was a very fashionable and cute room with interior that French and Moroccan fused. It was the only point of concern that the light in the room was somewhat dark. But I thought that it is very profitable to stay in this cute room at this price.

I entered the room and there was a bathroom on the right side and a bed on the left side. Air conditioning is also provided.

The bed was large and comfortable was good. There was a blanket just good.

There was also a spacious chair on the right as soon as entering the room.


The bathroom was also a wonderful interior made like Moroccan stone or brick.

There was big bathtub in bathroom, too. However, I think that it is better not to use it because it is a desert area. Water was bad, and when I took a shower the water had gathered. In the shower, hot water quickly got out, but sometimes it became water. I returned to hot water again soon, but I was not very stable.


The washbasin is wide and cute.

Sinks and faucets are gorgeous in gold.

Amenity was only shampoo, body soap, hand soap. I felt that my hair was slightly cleansing shampoo, but it may be due to water. Morocco is dry and cosmetic products are fulfilling, so I thought it would be nice to have a body cream and so on.

There was also a hair dryer.

Closet and Safety Deposit Box

There was a vertically long closet.

There were plenty of hangers inside, and it was good that you could put on a coat etc. Safety box was not found.

Restaurants in the hotel

There is no restaurant, but if you make a reservation you could have dinner on the roof terrace. Without drinks, 30 euros per person, the menu was awesome. In our time there were 3 types of appetizers, main chicken dishes, dessert. The taste was very delicious and tasty, it was wonderful.

We brought alcohol in Morocco because we do not sell alcohol. I got it cold beforehand, but in particular there was no bring-in fee. The terrace was cute interior Anyway it was quiet and the best atmosphere.

Facilities in the hotel

I asked the staff of Riyadh to do the laundry. I ordered it in the morning and it was completed at night. All the clothes were carefully ironed.

Hotel surroundings environment

Leaving the hotel for about 3 minutes it goes through a narrow, dark, maze like road of Kunekune. I did not come across dangerous eyes, but if I was a woman, I might be a little scared after the evening. It is safe to go out in a lively street as you pass through there. It is about 10 minutes on foot to the main plaza and it is a lot of fun because we sell a lot of miscellaneous goods like Morocco. Because the surroundings of the hotel are rather quiet, the atmosphere of the hotel was very good, I thought that the balance of lively place is a very good place when walking a little.

Staff & Customers

The service was wonderful. What time will it get up in the morning? As I was asked the other day, actually it was a lot behind that time, but as soon as I got on the seat I got ready for breakfast. Laundry is so polite that ironing is applied to underwear. In the dinner, it cooked the wine with no bring-in fee and gave it out. Since it is a small riad, it taught me carefully about how to negotiate at a store, notes, recommended spots, etc. at home. I felt it was as hospitality as the luxury hotel. I can not understand Japanese at all, but there are many Japanese customers, there are Japanese guidebooks and books. As all the staff can speak English, there was not any inconvenience in particular. I can not speak Japanese, but I was impressed by the customers from Japan.

There were young couple, elderly couple, single person travel of women, and a wide range of customers. I want to recommend it to those who want to experience Morocco in a quiet, homey atmosphere rather than a luxury hotel.


A car picked up at the airport came. It is nearly 20 minutes from the airport. A 10-minute walk from Riyadh will arrive at Souk which is the best sightseeing spot in Marrakech. With souks, foods, drinks, miscellaneous goods, etc. will be available in anything about stalls and shops. Public security is okay as it is lively late at night, but it was said that it is better not to walk with a single woman. The access of shopping was very good. There was something like a kiosk near the hotel, and I bought water and ice cream. It was a 10 minute walk on the main street so I went shopping many times and was able to eat at a restaurant or cafe.

Souk located about 5 minutes on foot

Surrounding markets


Riyadh Bossa who stayed this time is a wonderful hotel, which is a wonderful hotel to compete for the second place ranking number 1 among hotels I stayed so far, I would like to recommend regardless of young and old. The first one is the cuteness of the interior. It was a nice interior that fused France and Morocco to the traditional Moroccan building called Riyadh, but I enjoyed just looking at it. The second one is a quiet atmosphere. Sometimes it’s located a bit behind the boulevard, it is very quiet. It is small hotel and there is also a colonnade, so it is necessary to speak in a loud voice at night, but it was good like a secret base away from the elevation. In the morning terrace, only the birds singing and the Muslim prayer sounds that sounds far away. I can feel that I came to a foreign country. The third one is a wonderful hospitality. Through 3 nights 4 days, I was indebted to one young male staff. They kindly and friendlyly asked me a lot of selfishness such as “I want the wine to cool down” “I want to eat breakfast on the terrace”. It was such a wonderful place that I wanted to go to Morocco, just to stay in Riyadh.
