I travelled to Marrakech to loin my wife, who was on a tour taking in all the major centres in Morocco. Because of work, I only had a short 4 night stay, but this Hotel made it one of the most comfortable and interesting visits that I have experienced. I do not really like third world travel, the vast inequalities... More

Excellent service. Excellent hosts. Excellent food. Excellent accommodation. Excellent location. From booking our restaurant reservations, to drawing directions on a map and walking our bags to pre-booked taxis, the hosts really went out of their way to make this an extra special stay. The riad is in a great location, and whilst not too close to the main square you... More

We found this Riad thanks to Trip Advisor and were blown away by the hospitality -- from the early check in to help us assuage jet lag, to the fresh roses in the room, to the typical mint tea but also extraordinary pastries upon welcome, to the extensive introduction to landmarks of the neighbourhood that included Ahmed walking us into...

Unfortunately the hotel had double booked us and couldn't accomodate us at their hotel. These things do happen in that line of business, and are not necessarily an indicator of a bad hotel. In this case the hotel manager more than made up for their mistake. Not only did they profusely apologize and explain what happened, but they quickly and... More
