Both Miriam and Hansma are the best of hosts. Travelling alone in Marrakech they very quickly made me feel at home, going out of their way to help out. Aside from the fact that the home is beautiful, the pool area was a great refreshing alternative to the heat of Marrakech at this time of the year. Highly recommend the... More

A perfect choice for exploring Marrakech. Beautiful traditional Riad, clean, excellent service from friendly staff. We all really enjoyed our stay and appreciated staying in an authentic Riad. I would recommend to anyone looking for the real Morocco.

Staff are very friendly, welcoming and nothing is too much trouble for them. We are in the Riad a few evenings and the food was as good as most of the restaurants we visited. Lovely roof top... More

Lovely roof terrace which we used on our third day, just to relax and chill as we had done loads of walking and sight seeing on the other two days. It was soo hot,... More
