She easily and quickly arranged a... More

Great modern tasteful interior, close to the market square, delicious breakfasts and friendly staff. We also enjoyed our private hammam, the only one we experienced, in the privacy of the house and it was a unique experience. Congratulations to... More

We had the most wonderful honeymoon here. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. The riad was beautiful and the perfect private place to retire for some peace and quiet from the surrounding busy streets.

The riad is located 5 mins from the square and was very convenient. The breakfast was very delicious and varied everyday. Redwin was the riad manager whilst our stay and he was... More

Fantastic food. The breakfasts were excellent and the evening meal tagines and salads different each night and all delicious. Hammam and massage were definately worth having. Location ideal for the souks and square.

Just returned from a 4 night stay in this beautiful riad! As it was our first time to Marrakech and Morocco, we didn't know what to expect. We had booked the airport transfer through Nelly herself, and were surprised to be taken in a smart Mercedes by a smartly dressed man. After arriving at the Medina - a porter took... More
