            The service was second to none, we eat at the hotel 2 nights bit suprised to see there was no menu or choice of food but it did not matter the food was great an value for money, Mohammed was so helpful nothing was too much trouble, the location was bang in the middle of the medina just were we wanted to be, we will be traveling back later in the year and we can't wait to go back to the Altair

            The roof terrace was a lovely place to relax away from the bustle of Marrakech

            An oasis of calm away from the noise and dust of Marrakech. Fabulous breakfasts, beautiful decor, friendly and helpful staff, amazing bath, lovely crisp cotton sheets, comfortable pillows. This was everything that I imagined a riad to be.

            it is a beautifully presented, lovely decor,furniture and amenity. very clean and stylish. The stuff all very welcoming and helpful. recommended for couples.

            the room we styed was Algedi, which was most reasonably priced among 6 guest rooms in the hotel. The room exceeded our expectations except one thing- bathroom door. There was no door but just a curtain to section the bed room and bathroom. It was not most private setting for toilet but if you dont mind that, it is fantastic value for romantic stay, highly recommended.

            Characterful hotel, excellent service - a very restful and atmospheric place to stay.

            They did not offer food during the day or international phone dialing.

            From the moment we arrived we couldnt have been treated better. Nothing was too much trouble. The hotel was an oasis from the hubbub of the city. The staff were always on hand for information. The highlight was having breakfast every morning on the terrace.

          • Single
            10.0

            The hotel's design is simply a dream. Rooms are spacious, bathroom has everything, the service was outstanding, the stuff couldn't do enough to make coffee at 4 am or arrange private cars and drivers. Convenient location in the heart of the Medina, lovely roof terrace, excellent value for money. I will be back.

          • Couple
            8.2

            the roof terrace is incredible and the security guy working during the nights was the funniest guy we met in Marrakech :) , the breakfast was very delicious

            The style of the Riad could be more original, but this is only my opinion.

          • Couple
            10.0

            Excellent place in an excellent location, although it's difficult to find it for the first time (have to look carefully for the street names of the little alleys next to the mosque). Once there, you have everything you ever dreamt of: friendly staff, good food, quietness and beautiful surroundings.

          • Couple
            9.6

            Wonderful and kind service as well as relaxing hotel near to the town centre. We enjoyed a pleasant stay at this 6-room riad, which is located within the wall but not just in the centre (you will love this location).

          • Group of friends
            9.6

            great location, fab decor, level of attention to detail. Superb breakfast, friendly and attentive staff.

          • Group of friends
            8.2

            Very warm welcoming staff - Mohammed in the evening was very good, always willing to help . Surperb rooms and very clean. The location is good with only a short walk to the main square. The taxi service we used is a must from the airport ( only 15 mins away) which the Riad can arrange for you as the ocal taxi drivers will rip you off at the airport etc Breakfast was very good a good selection and large amounts were available and can choose where you want to eat. On arrival your given a map and various places of interest are shown by the staff of where you may want to visit. Overall a good Riad.

            The details about the Riad Altair are not completely correct that are on the Booked.net website. There is no bar! so you can not have a glass of wine or cold beer etc. So do try and have a look on the internet before you come of various places to eat which serve drinks as many do not so you are not wasting time looking for a drink. And massage / facials / cooking lessons are also not available at the Riad - they can arrange all of this but it is at a different location. They do not serve evening meals every night but only 3 nights- would be good if the option for every night was available or for a drinks licence.

            We both really enjoyed our stay in riad altair. We shall be recommending it to friends and family. The staff were excellant, we felt so welcome and they went out of there way to ensure our comfort and enjoyment. The location was perfect for access to the main attractions in Marrakech. We had a fabulous holiday in Marrakech and the riad was a big part of this
