We were booked here by our travel agency. We were on the first floor and, although our did not have a wonderful decor and was chilly, it had comfortable beds and blankets. The shower was not that great but the WiFi was. Yes, the dining room is cold in December so sit as far from the door as you can....

Riad Maktoub is located within walking distance from the magic kasbah Ait Ben Haddou. A traditional, stylish decorated riad, with a relaxing pool in the courtyard. On either side of the courtyard you’ll find covered walkways with spacious rooms with a sitting area. In case you would like to have diner here: they don't serve any alcohol.

My mother, myself, and my boyfriend stayed here one night on our trip across Morocco. I've lived in Morocco for two years and it was my mother's first trip to the country, so we called the riad and booked two rooms. We are aware of the laws in Morocco, and since we are not married, we planned that I would...

The rooms were very nice, the hotel was clean and the staff were friendly. The food was very nice, we had vegetable soup and chicken Tagine for dinner. We only stayed here for one night so didn't spend so much time in the hotel. The pool looked nice as well. It is a short walk from the world heritage site.

Great location and views, courteous staff (who waited until our arrival at around 1:30 am), beautiful indoor decorations and pool. Very spacious rooms with additional sofa beds allowing our group of three to sleep in separated sections of the room.

We had a very nice stay in this beautiful Riad. It's nice to see how hard working and very friendly people can build out such a lovely Riad and brand new restaurant! Let's hope that UNESCO will do a good job at the historical kashbah so there will be even more reasons to go to Ait Benhaddou.

We stayed here a night awaiting for our next tour group to arrive. The pool area was very relaxing, and we enjoyed some delicious turkey skewers for lunch here. The rooms have names instead of numbers, and the doors are quite small. I'm under six foot and had to duck quite a bit just to get in! Funny place, I...

Our room was fine but the decor was a little strange...not sure what theme they were going for but seemed to us to be a bit of the wild west mixed in with a desert theme...rifles in the room were a little odd! We arrived late - too late for us to eat a big meal and they were kind...

Stayed one night on a G Adventures tour. Not sure what you should expect in the way of accommodations at Aït Benhaddou, but Riad Maktoub offers clean, basic rooms. The furnishings showed some wear, there was only one electrical outlet, and the lighting was adequate, but not bright. The bath had a shower and a small sink; no shelves or...
