A decent place to stay at but definitely not among the best options. I was not entirely happy with my stay at this riad. The staff was not particularly helpful and gave some wrong advice, there is plenty of room to improve.

This is my first time writing a Review because i don't really like this hotel and marrakech itself. We booked twin room with aircond. But when we got room, it was a double room and without aircond. When we asked about that, the girl who was at the reception ignored us and said the night is ok without aircond because... More

The riad is very charming, especially because it really is in the inner district. Super cute, but very unfortunate the rooms are moderate. It's just a few minutes walk from the famous square: Jamae el Fna and her mysterious atmosphere.

After being stranded by another Riad, Amskal came to our rescue and gave us a place to sleep for the night. The room wasn't great, the shower hose had a hole in it so you showered the whole bathroom in addition to yourself, the door didn't lock and the bedding was damp. However, I can't say enough great things about... More

We made our reservation after seeing the pictures in booking.com. We were very excited as the pictures showed beautiful rooms and even a terrace overlooking some gardens. Well, we never saw the nice rooms nor the terrace. We got a terrible room. Small, poor, smelly and, overall, not very pleasent. I conplained to the staff but they told me they... More

So, it was a balmy February evening... we landed in Marrakech. We got a taxi to the entrance of the Medina, although its not really the main medina... The riad was relatively easy to locate, however, in the dark, it was a bit creepy, walking through the twisting alleyways.. Our room was a bit dingy, but clean enough... The shared... More

The Riad is very clean, situated in the Medina and thus close to some of the more important interesting places in Marrakech. Breakfast was enjoyed on top of the Riad with a marvellous view over the outskirts of the city. Mohamed was exceedingly helpful and very kind. Diner (not included in the price, of course, but fairly cheap) was typical... More

I certainly would not recommend this riad. The cleanliness of the room was very poor-especially the smell of rotten eggs in the room/bathroom, which was very strong. As we were leaving very early the next morning we were assured we would have breakfast, however all we received was a glass of orange juice. The final negative point is that for... More

This Riad had awful customer service: almost nobody spoke English, or Spanish like advertised. A note about security is that it is down a very creepy alley that had me worrying about my security every time I walked down it, and that no cars can get to the Riad. Breakfast was lacking, crepe, English muffin, cup of tea and cup... More
