Me and my family spent 5 nights at this Riad. Right from the beginning the stuff made us feel at home! They were very friendly, helpful, answered all our questions and we had nice conversations. The atmosphere was very pleasant and we felt very welcome all time. Once or twice in a week they do a party with a delicious... More

As a birthday gift for myself, I had booked a flight ticket to Marrakech and had not done much research about the place or the culture. Being an experienced traveller, I was wary of everything being in a new country that I had almost no knowledge of but I was lucky enough to have locals (male and female) looking out... More

We were very pleased with this Riad and would recommend them. In a hectic medina, this place was a true oasis. All the staff are local and are completely welcoming, yet keep a respectful distance when appropriate. All extremely helpful and enthusiastic. The architecture of the renovated riad is beautiful. The food was great, so we ate here every night.... More

What a marvelous place to start and end our trip. The riad is a beautiful place to spend a few days and the staff are some of the nicest, most helpful and friendly people I have met anywhere. We got the airport pick up and it was an easy, smooth, hassle free experience that I would highly recommend if you... More

Very warm and friendly staff. Great dinner on a terrace facing the royal gardens. Our bed was strewn with rose petals. Beautiful courtyard. Red chiffon curtains and beautiful carved wood and plasterwork on the ceiling. Great location.

From the huge delicious breakfast in the morning, until our heads hit the pillow, the staff did everything they possibly could for us. They didnt even seem like staff, more extremely helpful friends! Food was fantastic, bedrooms were beautiful and spotless. The entire Riad was incredibly beautiful. The pictures dont do it justice, and we even had breakfast on the... More

Very well located, in a quiet street and very close to the market, this Riad is a nice, clean and comfortable place. The meals are very nice, served at the terrace, with very tasty tradicional morrocan dishes.(And you may learn how to cook. They offer nice cooking classes!) But most of all, hospitality of the staff is incredible (thanks, Abdel!).... More

My fiance and I stayed at this cosy riad for a week in January 2015. It had a good location close to the souqs (markets) and only 5 min from the big square Djema el-fna. The room and the rest of the riad was beautiful and the meal we had here first night was delicious. The staff was fantastic and... More
