    Superb

    Very very nice riad, with a good location (10 minutes walk form Jemma el Fna), big and tasty breakfast and a superb suite (Gaspard was our suite). Also the staff was very very nice. Would recommend to anyone.

    I missed frsh orange juice instead of tetrapack one for the breakfast.

    Fabulous

    Stylish room (Gaspard suite); friendly people, clean, breakfast okay, not too far from Jemaa el Fna and the busstation. It's easy to find with the description I found amongst these comments: standing in front of the Dar Marjana restaurant go to the left +/- 50 mtrs and then to the right through the porch like entrance signed for Riad Dar Baraka & Karam, then follow the sign to Dar Julia. Dar Balthazar is at the end of the same alleyway.

    No complaints; the price relatively seems a little bit high though compared to other hotels in Marrakech.

    I enjoyed the calm ambiance as you walk in the door and the traditional moroccan decor throughout the riad was superb. Amazing terrace for sun bathing, having breakfast or dinner. Staff very helpful and friendly.

    Superb

    It was clean, very beautifully designed and decorated, the staff was friendly. It was quiet, well situated, absolutely value for money. I would definitely recommend it.

    The staff didn't know very much about excursions etc. in Marroco. They weren't very helpful in this issue only. On all other issues they were great. Additionally, some of the staff didn't speak... any language well (except arabic, of course). Others spoke french well, so it was easier to communicate.

    Staff at the riad were extremely friendly and went beyond the call of duty to make sure our stay in Marrakech was a pleasant one. Our room was the picture of Moroccan decor and breakfast on the sun-soaked rooftop was a great start to the day. It is in a great location - it is about 5 minutes from the souks and 10 minutes from the main square. It is easy enough to find once you know your way and there is a travel agency nearby where you can book your tours into the desert. A professional and friendly service in a picture-perfect riad - I would definately recommend this to my friends as a value-for-money riad in the heart of Marrakech.

    Very good

    Friendly staff, lovely room, and amazing roof top terrace to soak up the sun. Air conditioning in the bedroom

    The only one thing I will say is the place is not the easiest to find despite the hotel sending us a map prior to arrival! We had to pay a local 20 MAD to show us,

    Superb

    The Riad staff were great, nothing was to much trouble. You will be amazed when you go through the little wooden door, from a alleyway into a peaceful and tranquil setting.

    Nothing much, bit difficult to find without a map maybe a bit more hot water at night in the bathroom.

    Fabulous

    The staff were very friendly and helpful.

    although on the website it says it has a pool, when we arrived there was no pool. This needs to be updated on their website as it can be misleading.

    Fabulous

    The staff were welcoming and very attentive but in an unobtrusive way - there if you needed them but out of sight if you didnt! The room was lovely! The decor was elegant nicely blending Moroccan and European style whilst retaining the original features (eg dark wood shutters). We woke each morning to the amazing sound of 1-2 birds singing in the courtyard (otherwise it was completely silent and tranquil). If you have enough time there are several chill out areas to relax. I would recommend having dinner at the Riad one night. Food was good but the service was impeccable!

    The lighting in the room (and throughout the riad) was very atmospheric/lovely but sorry to say we did struggle a bit to see in the low light!

    Good

    It's a nice and clean Riad.

    The first night was quite loud as there were guests who talked very loud in the garden. The Riad is in a quite location. In the evening, won't go out alone.

    Breakfast was ok.

    Giant cockroach in room within minutes of arrival. No a/c in our room which was on the bottom floor. If we wanted to open the windows for air, it opened into the communal lounge where everyone could see into our room and we could hear all their conversations. Wifi does not work in the room, and not even everywhere in the lounge area. Works only near the staircase corner where the router is. Beware of guides because they are more aggressive in marrakesh than other cities in expecting higher payment. The big city has higher rates I guess.

    Exceptional

    Both my friends and I really enjoyed our stay at Riad Balthazar. The facilities were in line with our needs.The room was spacious and clean, the lounge areas were perfect for chilling-out after a busy day in town. I will definitely miss having such delicious breakfasts on the roof terrace!! The location was good, as within easy walking distance from the main plaza but at the same time in a peaceful area.The hospitality of the staff was amazing. Nadia, Atika, Rashida & Rashid really made us feel at home and I am specially grateful to their dedication when I was feeling slighty unwell one evening.Would definitely return to this Riad on my next visit to Marrakech and recommend to other friends & travellers.
