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

Lovely little riad in the centre of Marrakech, complete with sun terrace and cool jacuzzi. Very smartly decorated rooms and spaces, only negative point was we felt breakfast could have been better and didn't match the standards of the rest of the property. Excellent base to explore from, very quiet and a welcome retreat from the hustle and bustle of... More

The Riad is located near enough to the square but tucked away on a side road so that you almost can't hear the all the noise. The Riad's decor is very nice and kept well clean, our room was cleaned daily along with the sheets being changed. As a young couple, Franck was especially helpful in navigating us around the...

We are a group of girlfriends who visited the Riad at the beginning of June. We had booked 2 suites both with seating areas in January. We used the transfer from the airport which was wonderful so we had no problem locating the Riad. The Riad is wonderful and well presented and Frank a great host. It is well situated... More

It's difficult to write words that haven't been used before but here goes....the Riad is light and airy and gives you a chance to relax before the hustle and bustle of the souks. The staff are there when wanted but are sensitive enough to know when to leave you alone to enjoy your holiday in peace. The rooms are clean... More

We stayed here on our first day in Marrakesh- which is without a doubt the most chaotic one of your stay. It took us a while to find the riad however after the first day you get the gist of the town and its roads and it becomes easier. The hotel was a small gem in the middle of a... More

It looks like a common medina from outside, but as soon you enter the door, you won't believe what you will see. Spacious rooms, quiet riad to live. It's good for couple and group. Breakfast on the rooftop with a nice Atlas mountain view. Breathtaking!
