The Riad is lovely, very well appointed and we found it very clean. The manager Mohamed is the perfect gentlemen and catered for us perfectly as did the other staff. We had a great stay and felt very looked after, all our questions were answered quickly and efficiently. The property is some 15 to 20 mins walk from the centre... More

The riad is not easy to find, the owner was extremely unfriendly and not helpful (even agressive when we asked for another room). The rooms where ok but dirty. There are plenty of hotels in the medina that are very nice to stay in! I would definitely NOT recommend this hotel!

I stayed here with three other female friends. The place is very difficult to find if you go through the old city to get to it. You really need to go around the main road. The owner started off being friendly but as our stay progressed he became quite rude and was visibily drunk late at night. Due to the... More

Clean, comfortable, small rustic riad with a more than welcoming owner - Mustafa. The only downfall is location - near the door Bab Ailen (as far as the taxi can go), amid slum-like houses, a bit scary at night but apparently very secure (we had no problems coming in late all 4 nights). Good value for money.

We stayed with Moustafa for 3 nights at the start of our family holiday. We could not be happier with the experience. The rooms were beautiful & authentic. The level of service from Moustafa & his female staff was 10 star. The riad itself is nothing short of stunning & it was hard to leave each morning to go exploring.... More

The Riad was lovely, the staff very helpful and the food was gorgeous. It may be useful to some to know that the evening meals need to be booked after breakfast, so don't expect to be able to rock up on your first night and have a meal at the Riad. However they were very helpful in our case and... More

Lovely Riad within the old walled city, it was an oasis in the middle of the hussle and bussle of Marrakesh. The staff and accommodation was simply fantastic and although we initially thought it was a little bit far away, it was always a nice walk down the locals main street into the Medina - turned out to be a...
