A wonderful hotel with a great location if you want to get to know the city. Super clean, good service and it looks just like the photos on the website. I dare to say it's even better than the photos. It's an ideal place for couples, one of these romantic hotels that you'd like to go to with your significant... More

I spent 3 nights with friends at this Riad. It is situated in the medina, the old city of Marrakech not too far from a parking area. The approach by foot is not that pleasant at night, but we were welcomed by a member of staff when our taxi dropped us off & he escorted us to the riad. The... More

I love this riad, it's a hidden gem in the heart of Marrakech. The rooms are stylish and the roof terrace is the perfect chill out place after a day of sightseeing.
