This is the best riad that we have stayed in Morocco. Staff are also very helpful. Will definitely recommend this riad to our family and friends. A very much thank you to Abdou & Muhamad. Abdou has guided us to the riad from the train station by giving the direction to the taxi driver. He also waited for us at... More

Spent one week in this riad. My first riad experience. Very amicable staff, spotlessly clean, delicious breakfasts and nothing was too much trouble for anyone to sort out. Lovely rooftop terrace. Very central and close to most of the souks, D'jemaa al Fna square and shopping centre. Would highly recommend this riad.

Tranquil, yet minutes away from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. Perfect location in easy reach of the souks, food markets and the square. The staff provided an excellent service and made us feel very welcome without being over the top. Our flight home was cancelled due to strikes and they were extremely helpful in arranging alternative accommodation and let... More

The riad is a new concept on me since I last went to Morocco, but about £23 per night for a room in an old house right next to the Djemma al Fna was not to be sniffed at and so it was. Not just excellent value for money, also very friendly with ample breakfasts in what looks to my... More

When planning to stay in Marrakech, we must recommend this Riad. We selected it after careful research of various booking sites and tripadvisor. Pro's and cons: Pro's - warm welcome with tea and local cookies. - we arrived around 11 am but could already get into our room. - Fouad, as mentioned is a warm and capable person with a... More

The hotel is a little difficult to find but we asked for directions in a restaurant nearby and the problem was solved. The room was ok, clean and quiet, in the center of marrakech medina. Good breakfast. Be careful with the receptionist advice about restaurants because he will take you to the most expensive ones.
