Nice Riad in quite place of Medina. Friendly guys from reception will help you if you have some 'special wishes'. Actually I cannot complain about anything and I can recommend you to stay in there if you want to spend few days in Marrakech and be 15mins away from the main square.

room at ground floor is dark and ugly. it's very noisy, especially because staff is listening to loud music at night, even though they know you are in the room. speakers are attached at the door, so if you want to rest its impossible! shower pressure is very weak, if someone is using hot water in the kitchen, only few...

The staff was very nice and friendly until we declined to use their tour agency, which is more than double the price of other good agencies. The shower has hot water for only abt 5 min, and only a few drops of water will come out. On the day before we left they asked us to move to another room,... More

We booked Riad Amlal because of its budget price (we arrived on New Year's Eve and many other places were either unavailable or expensive). After having just arrived in Marrakesh and trekking through the streets, it was a relief to get inside the quiet courtyard of this riad. We were invited to sit down and served tea straight away, which... More

I've stayed @ many hostels & never encountered one with so many issues. Booked a private double only to be told they overbooked. We were re-accommodated @ a hostel down the street. Was awful. Dark, creepy, smelly. We only stayed one night b/f checking in at a B&B for 1 night before returning to this hostel once the room became... More

Mustapha, Hicham, and the rest of the gang gave my fellow travelers and I a great experience in Marrakech at an amazing price. Although we only stayed on night at the hostel, they were extremely friendly and willing to help us with whatever we needed. When we returned to Marrakech for a few hours before our flight (we had been... More

Unclear directions to hostel on purpose so local touts can extort money out of tourists by "showing them to the hostel" Lied about prices. Booked a private room and was put in a dorm upon arrival.
