A lovely Riad, had a good room on the first floor. This Riad has a wonderful location overlooking the gardens of the Palais de la Bahia with trees full of birds - a beautiful place for breakfast. The staff were very helpful, collected us from the end of the alleys when we arrived, gave helpful advice on what to see...

Pos: Riad was the same as described on booking.com maybe even better. Warm atmosphere and super friendly staff Samir, Zaira as well as the lady who cooks 😀. Open people with a true and bright smile! Excellent location. Neg: A bit pricy food and drinks, room could have been cleaner. Highly recommended.

Riad Swaka is one of three Riads owned and run by the owners Walter and Fatima. Walter arranged to pick us up from the airport at an €18 cost (definitely worth it on arrival as you have the security of knowing you will be met and led to the Riad safely. It is down a few back streets which might...

The location is very central, and easy to find after they give you directions from the hotel. Nice breakfast and helpful staff.

We looked all over the Internet for a place to stay within Medina on a limited budget. We came across Riads which looked average for the price and others whichever were completely out of our budget, after making reservations and cancellation all over the place we found Riad Swaka. This quaint little Riad is in the perfect location i within...

Bit expensive but very worth it. Very lovely staff. Helped us hire a car, which was great for travelling around Morocco. Great rooms, amazing roof garden and good location - although a little bit of a maze through the back roads. Definitely recommend!
