We booked two rooms for three nights well in advance on booking.com. We arrived to find out the riad was overbooked for the following two nights and that we were being moved to another one without consultation. We slept there for one night; the rooms were a 7/10 on clean scale, no towels given to one room and the other...

Talked about tourists living in crap and not complaining which made me More angry...highly...

Would definitely recommend -and would stay there again without a doubt!, We got picked up from the airport as promised and with no delays. When we first arrived in the area was raining and all looked a bit grey and moody. We got to the Riad and when we opened the main door we were amazed. It looked stunning, colourful...

Myself and a friend stayed at the kalinka lotus at the end of February from the moment we were picked up from the airport right until the moment we left Abdul and his lovely team gave us nothing but their full attention care and courtesy. Its a great little riad only a 10 min walk from the main square. Rooms...

We had a wonderful stay in Abdellatif's riad! He did everything to make our 3-day stay a great experience and he helped us out with planning our trips to discover Marrakech. We felt more than welcome. The room was clean and we had everything we needed and wifi works very well. The riad lies at a ten-minute walk from the...

We spend last weekend at the Riad Kalinka lotus, with the wonderful host, Abdul, who informed us after the Paris attack the rest of his bookings had been cancelled. What a shame. It meant we got the Riad all to ourselves. It is 100% true to label- the photos represent the rooms well. It doesn't show the stunning roof top...
