I stayed at this B&B for a week and I could not find a better place to spend my holidays. It was very clean, very cosy environment and a quiet place to relax.. Nelly is very nice and friendly, she is a great hostess. I would definitely stay there again.

The transfer arranged by the riad waited for us, in the airport, for almost 2 hours during which we waited and complained about our luggage. As a result, we entered Vanilla Sma almost at 2:00 a.m. starving and completely frustrated with our luck. Nelly, the wonderful host and Redouan, her assistant, were waiting for us and made all the difference!... More

Vanilla sma is a very nice, clean and charming hotel. We staid three nights in this lovely place. After enjoying a rich breakfast you can walk to Djemal El Fna in just a few minutes or just spend your days in the souks. The owner (Nelly) is super friendly and makes sure everything is in order. If she's around don't... More

Like you are in a very tail. As a welcome, we were given mint tea and the staff gave us a lot of inside tips. Where to go,... More

This is a beautiful, stylish and peaceful Riad in the heart of Marrakech. It's the perfect retreat from the hectic streets. And the service and breakfast are superb. I recommend it highly. Thank you so much to Nelly and Redouan for everything.

The decor and style of this Riad is wonderful.... Traditional yet modern and so much attention to detail. The owner Nelly is very knowledgable about the area and offered us little tips about good bars and restaurants which were very useful. Would definitely recommend staying here.
