We had a wonderful experience at Khalid's Riad. It was like staying with a friend. Khalid would check on us several times each day to make sure that our visit was perfect. Whenever we had any questions or requests he immediately took care of them. He helped us arrange three wonderful excursions at excellent prices and then walked us to meet the travel guides in the mornings. What is special about this accommodation is that while you have the privacy of the entire home, Khalid still comes over in the morning to cook a breakfast. During the breakfast preparation time, you'll have an opportunity to chat and to learn what might be a good activity to take on during the day. After we checked out, Khalid let us keep some of our luggage in his Riad while we took a three-day tour to the Sahara desert. Then when we returned, he still walked us over to our next accommodation (15-min journey through a labyrinth of narrow streets), which would have been very difficult for us to find alone, even though we had received written instructions. We really appreciated this gesture of kindness because we were not his guests any longer, and we were so tired from our twelve-hour return trip that day. We will recommend Khalid's Riad to all our friends.
I would like to tell you how happy me and my daughters were with the stay by Khalid and the beautiful riad.
We liked his hospitality very much for the breakfast and the first evening the dinner were great. His service to bring us to the Swimmingpool and Supermarket. The pickup and transport to the Aeroport.
We had a very nice experience with Marrakech and Khalid was part of it to make it a succesfull trip. We recommend him by everyone.

We had an amazing stay at Khalid's Riad in Marrakech. Khalid is very kind and hospitable. He picked us up from the airport and took us on a tour of the souks on our first night. He organised excursions for us and made us traditional breakfast every morning! The Riad itself is beautiful and in a great location so you can get everywhere you need to go on foot. All in all a great experience and an amazing country!
The Riad is beautiful and the pictures are accurate. Khalid was a gracious host. He provided breakfast every morning which consisted of breads, jams, olives, tea/coffee, and juice. He also cooked us a lunch which consisted of couscous on the Friday we were there. He does live on the premises so for some it may feel invasive. He took us on a tour of the major sites we wanted to see which was kind of him. He arranged a tour for us to visit the atlas mountains and other sites. We enjoyed ourselves but were not given a tour guide, just a driver. Luckily a person in our group spoke Arabic so we were able to ask questions and get more information about what we were seeing. I would not use this tour group, but I would absolutely recommend the destination(Siti Fatma and Atlas Mountains) is a great break for the hustle and bustle of Marrakesh.
It was overall a wonderful trip.
The accommodation of Khalid is the best you can imagine. Khalid picked us up at the airport and brought us back. He welcomed us with tea and couscous and he gave us great tips (Hamman, Camel-Ride, Restaurants...). The house has a very a central location, but is quiet and like an oasis in Marrkech . The roof terrace offers a great view and the evening tea is a highlight . In the morning we got typical breakfast . We have felt ourselves very well and thank Khalid that he made our stay so memorable. We can recommend Khalid and his Riyadh at 150 %.
We will come back for sure and got a new friend calles Khalid!

We have spent three nights and two days at Khalid´s Riad and all I have to say is that everything has been perfect. The location, close to the Jema-El-Fna square, the zucks and other major places to visit, the house, very confortable and specially decorated, the breakfast, superb. But the real difference has been Khalid's generosity to help us in every possible way. Being in a country so different to ours (we're from Argentina) may be a kind of challenge, but Khalid's advices and tips and even his company the first night, when we reached Marrakech late and hungry, and he waited for us at the airport and went with us to a restaurant later than midnight, all this extra hospitality has been an important issue to make us confortable in our first stay in Morrocco. So: Khalid's Riad is highly recommended! Don't hesitate if you are planning some special days at Marrakech!
Khalid's place is wonderful! and so is Khalid. He made us feel so welcome, picking us up from the airport and making us breakfast when we got in - it was like going to stay with family. The house itself is beautiful - comfy beds, lovely bathrooms and two fabulous roof terraces. It's also a welcome escape from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech and is incredibly peaceful. Thank you Khalid for looking after us so well. We will be back - and we're telling all our friends so expect more bookings!!
