Just got back from Marrakesh 3 weeks ago. My husband and I went for 4 nights in June and loved the experience. Firstly I must warn you that if you are not going for the traditional experience then this is certainly not for you! But we did and the experience was amazing! When we first arrived we were a bit...

Ok, where do I start, the lack of English probably with only two people in the Riad - one who could speak enough to get by. And the other couldn't speak a word of English at all. The location is off a side street. Cars can't get there so you have to walk past very loud and aggressive locals who... More

A little bit off the beaten track this was a great oasis for our group. Noor, one of the staff looked after us well. We had the hotel number and could call on them to meet us from the taxi drop off late at night. Breakfast was lovely and the roof terrace perfect.

Located in a quiet area north of the souks. Hassan picked us from taxi drop off and welcome us warmly. He even took us to the souk the first evening. He did everything he could to ensure we had a great stay. We had dinner one evening and the food was good. It wasn't cheap 20 euros pp. My only... More

Far enough from noise yet close enough to the main square. Hassan is the most hospitable manager going! We were dropped off at the point where taxi's drop you off and was met and greeted by Hassan promptly, check in was swift and room was lovely (room 1 on ground floor) but no problems with noise as the hotel only...

North of the main souks this riad is quiet. You are not dumped out into the hustle and chaos of the souk. Hassan greeted us warmly and did everything he could to ensure we had a great stay. An example is that he personally took us to a cute, inexpensive restaurant with a terrace for dinner our first night, apologizing... More

We have been to Marrakech a number of times staying in hotels but wanted to experience the "Real Marrakech" therefore opted for a Ryad (traditional house/palace with a courtyard) and this is a true ryad. A very warm welcome by Hassan who ensured our every need, nothing is too much for him and he is smiling all the time. Breakfast... More

Just got back from staying at this Riad. Excellent place, very clean, peaceful and service is just first class. We had our dinner here which we had to pre-book and Lila (the chef etc) cooked us such a wonderful delicious three course meal for practically nothing( very cheap). Hassan who works there speaks very good english which is of so... More

Stayed here in September 2013 with my partner. The Riad is hard to find so make sure you book an airport transfer which will cost you 15 euros. This Riad only accepts euros as cash payment for drinks and food so bring some with you for this or pay at the end on card if you prefer. The food is... More

We stayed here for the last week in August! When we arrived we were served with mint tea - a very nice welcoming. The Riad is beautiful! An oasis in the middle of the medina. There is only 5 rooms, the top terrace, open like lounge/courtyard on the ground floor. Really relaxing to sit a read a good book. We... More
