I am really shocked by all the great reviews. We stayed here for 2 nights in August and the riad was deserted. We were essentially the only people here and the staff, forgive my language, could not seem to give a damn. We tried to ask for how to book desert tour and other day tours, and they never got...

We stayed 3 nights and could not ask for a better place to stay. Our room was large and everything was spotless throughout the entire riad. The location could not be better. It is just steps from Jemma el-Fnaa and the souks. Even though it is close to everything, it is very quiet. There are lounge chairs and a hot... More

We went to Marrakech to celebrate my 40th birthday. The Riad is lovely, its off of one of the side streets of the souks. You can't get a taxi directly outside the Riad as the area is all pedestrianized. We arranged a taxi from the airport (via an email we got from the Riad) and a chap then took us... More

My Husband & I loved our stay at this hotel, hospitality was extremely appreciated. It was very traditional yet modern in many ways. The rooms were comfortable, clean, friendly staff and easy access to visit nearby places. The clever idea of a hot tub on the roof, a relaxing must do indeed, really enjoyed it.

Beautiful traditional Moroccan Hotel (Riad). It has an excellent location, few steps from the main square - Jemaa el-Fnaa. The hotel staff is so friendly that it was a pity to leave this place. The rooms are very traditional and at the same time modern. Always clean and it smells cleaness in every part of the Riad. We enjoyed a... More

Great value for money, excellent location, a few minuets walk from the square and the busy streets of the old town, yet a peaceful hidden retreat away from the noise and only a 15 - 20 minute walk from the new town and shopping plaza and the main places of interest. Franck and all his staff where so welcoming, polite... More

Staying at this Riad made our stay in Marrakech very special. This is one of the best small hotels that we have ever stayed in. The staff were very helpful and friendly. We ate two meals in the Riad which were excellent on both occasions. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. All in all a first class Riad that... More

Excellent experience. Quiet location a block away from the busy streets in old town, and close to the square. Super helpful and friendly staff. Arranged stay at a next riad, as they were fully booked for the next night. Nice, cozy, clean rooms, large TVs, beds etc. Complementary water in minibars.

Excellent choice of Riad Very close to the action in the Medina/Souks, but just off a quiet side street, so it's very peaceful when inside. Nice on the roof terrace with sun loungers where we took drinks (and in the Jacuzzi) Very quiet for sleeping, except when they're called to prayer starting at 05.30, but you'll hear that anywhere.

Frank, and his entire staff, offer a relaxing, serene, and wonderful retreat from the bustle of the Medina. Everyone was so accommodating and made every effort to ensure our vacation was a satisfying one. The location is an easy walk from the Jemaa el Fna. We dined in the Riad two evenings and found that the quality of the food... More
