The best part of staying at this riad was the advice and service we got from the hotel staff. Frank took the time to give us an introduction on how to negotiate prices upfront with locals, gave us great advice on nearby restaurants, reserved a camel ride for us, and arranged dry cleaning for us. The hotel is a few... More

Great location if you want to be very close to main square and easy to find off a very busy street early evening which is a bit seedy and crowded with locals of all sorts. Recommend taking your first dinner here on the first night on the lovely roof restaurant. It was one of the best we had. We were... More

I have never left a review on trip advisor (one of those things I never find the time for) but after staying at this hotel in November 2014 for 1 week and enjoying our stay so much, I had to follow up and praise this hotel any way I could. First I want to say this is located in the... More

Exceptionally friendly, warm and helpful staff. Excellent advice on aspects of tipping, taxi prices etc. Although it is predominantly French speaking, the staff did speak good but broken English, just need to speak a little slower :). Offered superb complimentary dinner on first night. Although within the Medina, it is far by the easiest to find, being only 2 minutes... More

A modern Riad in the heart of the Medina. A few minutes walk and you're in the middle of the Souks but just off the beaten track enough for well needed piece and quiet. Reception staff spoke very good English and could not of done more to help us with transfers, directions & recommendations for places to visit. Had an... More

Very friendly and super helpful staff. Delicious breakfast on the roof at your leisure. Any time between 8-noon! Lovely first evening meal, which helped us get accustomed. Our room was very clean with fresh towels and flowers daily. The riad is perfectly situated amongst the busy streets, but you can't hear the hustle and bustle from within the walls which... More

We stayed at Marrakech for three nights along with 5 days in the dessert. When we stayed in Marrakech we decided to stay in this wonderful Riad. Abla and all the staff were very kind to us and very helpful. The rooms where neat and very beautiful and the beds were super comfortable. We booked dinner one of the nights... More

A wonderful peaceful haven away from the hustle and bustle of the main square which was only 2 min away . Everything about this Riad was outstanding . We ate there on our 1st evening the food was great and very romantic up on the candle lit roof terrace. The Hammam is a must expertly delivered by the ladies who... More

Located very close to the main square Jamaa El-Fna, the staff were very friendly and helpful. (English speaking). We ordered the set menu for our first night and were not disappointed. The soup needs particular mention as it was the best I had in Morocco (and I tried a few). Breakfast served on the roof was good (toast, pastries, cakes,... More

Had a great experience at the Riad. The staff were very friendly and accommodating; none more so than Abla the manager. She promptly contacted us after we booked to request our flight details so as to arrange the complimentary shuttle from the airport. Upon arrival we were welcomed with a lovely pot of mint tea (a definite MUST!), and was... More
