The riad is in the Jewish quarter and away from the main souks, this means that you're not straight out of your door and into the wonderful chaos of Marrakesh. The walk (only ten minutes) gives you time to adjust and you see people going about their daily lives which we enjoyed very much. The riad is lovely and so... More

Beautiful traditional riad, lovely room and staff were friendly, entertaining and couldn't do enough to make us comfortable, feel very welcome and look after us - they were good fun. We stayed at the beginning of February - lovely warm days and cold nights - we had looked at temperatures in Morrocco before booking and would advise anyone else to... More

Stayed in this riad on 31 December 2013 for one night only,with husband and two children. Thank goodness we were only there one night, not very friendly and charged us 220 dirhams for cheap bottle of wine,we had paid less for similar bottle in nearby restaurant. Riad very pretty but freezing. Female staff seemed friendly.

This Riad is a little out of the way, right on the edge of the medina, average 20 minutes walk to the centre. The rooms are small, even the suites . The place is a little worn around the edges considering the price. Very cold in January when we went as the only heating in the whole place is the... More

Booked to stay for 1 night to experience staying in a riad. Had none of the things we had been advertised - no wifi, indoor heated pool not heated, no English speaking channels on tv except GOD channel & Bloomberg, and no dinner available (has to be ordered at breakfast in advance). We had our 3yr old son with us... More

Hmmmmm. Not sure. The Riad is away from the noise and bustle of Marrakech and is an oasis of calm, but the rooms are dark, not very comfortably furnished, the bed was hard and there is just a curtain between the bedroom and bathroom. They were clean and serviced every day. The WiFi never worked and the TV only had... More
