We stayed here to celebrate my 61st birthday and it was perfect. Staff were friendly and very helpful. The accomodation was clean and beautiful. We ate dinner there just once as there is so much to choose from out in the Medina but it was well worth it and highly recommended. I am already looking forward to going back next... More

This riad is tucked away down a series of winding turns in the medina, in very easy walking distance to the fantastic souks of Marrakech. The rooms are elegantly decorated, and the staff is very friendly. Dinner at the riad was actually the best I had in Marrakech: a tagine of lamb, prunes, and spices on the rooftop. While the...

It was a very comfortable and extravagant stay, and the Riad staff was very friendly and treated us like a friend visiting his home. The Riad is a bit difficult to find at first, but once you are able to find it, there is no problem finding it again. It's location is good and is within 10 minutes walking distance... More

The Riyad is just 10 min walk from Main Square in old Medina, yet it’s very quiet, safe and peaceful at the end of an alleyway. After walking through ancient tiny alley with mud and brick pathway, you enter this fabulous house with beautiful décor and very friendly staff welcoming you with traditional mint tea (the best). The entrance is... More

My wife and I stayed here in Nov 2015. We booked over the internet and the process was easy. Having read reviews we asked for transfers from the airport which was worthwhile as it speeded up the process. It is essential to have the "Bag Cart" otherwise you will never find the Riad but once you are there navigating around... More

My husband and I arrived at about 9 pm after a very slow process getting through immigration at the airport! We were greeted with delicious reviving mint tea, biscuits and a welcome chat. We were then shown to our amazing room (The Turquoise Suite), which was just beautiful and with a very spacious en-suite shower room. We had pre-ordered our... More

Arriving to the Riad they treat you like royalty. The manager is very personable and very accommodating. You are walking distance to the main square, the markets, the palace, etc. We did not go out to eat so the manager decided they could cook for us. It was delicious. We spent a couple night this Riad and I which we... More

My husband and I (both in our sixties), recently stayed at this riad and were treated like royalty. All of the staff were attentive, friendly and efficient but in particular, Abdul and Aissa went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Both had excellent English and spent a lot of time with us telling us about Moroccan culture.... More

The Moroccan family that runs this riad goes above and beyond to help you with anything you need. They even gave us a room upgrade for free. The decoration feels a bit over-the-top for me and they had some aromatic candles in the room that were just too strong for my sense of smell. But in all honesty is a... More
