This was our first and last visit to Marakech! The Riad was lovely, spotlessly clean and a safe haven from the madness of outside! Mohammad the Manager was excellent, very informative of the local area and safety tips. We arranged a taxi to take us to the hotel, only you get dropped off at the square and one of the... More

Stayed here for a long weekend in Jan. We had a suite on the 2nd floor, nice size and a very firm bed which I liked. Breakfast was buffet style, omelet, toast, yogurts, fresh fruit, cold meats and the nicest fresh orange juice I've ever tasted. We ate at the riad on the first night, we didn't get what we... More

This is a typical Riad in the middle of the old city about 5 minutes walk from the main square. The decor is great and the staff friendly and helpful. We arrived in the early evening after the main square had been closed to traffic so they arranged a hand cart as part of the airport transfer. Following the hand... More

My friend and I spent 4 nights here at the end of November and could not fault our stay with Frank and his lovely team. Located in a wonderfully quiet spot in the heart of the Medina, this Riad is the perfect base for exploring Marrakech. The interior is beautiful and the staff are so friendly and helpful. They arranged... More

We spent 4 nights in the Riad and it was just perfect. Right in the heart of the Medina you turn down a side street into total peace and quiet- very much needed after a day walking the city! Fresh omelettes made in the morning and I would definitely recommend having dinner at least once during your stay- it was... More

We spent six days at this Riad and were extremely happy with the room and service we received. The Riad is in excellent condition and we found the images we saw prior to our visit were a true reflection of the Riad. The Riad is around the corner from the main square and the souks, yet we found the noise... More

Stayed for 2 nights. Location is amazing for walking around Marrakech and the staff are incredible and very welcoming. Lovely rooms. For some reason the wifi was very bad from 5 pm onwards which was strange as it was excellent until that time. The air con struggled but it was up to 46 outside. Breakfast served on the roof terrace... More

Fantastic Riad , great way to escape the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. When you first arrive if you ask for directions don't let anyone offer to take you to the Riad because they will ask you for money which is a common theme in Marrakech . The raid is so close to the square which is handy when you... More
