We stayed here in October/Nov 2015. The welcome from Charles and his staff was very warm and the accommodation very comfortable. It was a bit too cool for us to use the pool more than once, but with warmer weather the pool and garden must be a very relaxing and beautiful place to spend time. As it was a bit... More

Once again I had a perfect stay at this peaceful oasis inside the Medina. As soon as you walk in and after all the bustle of the Medina, you enter a heaven of peace and tranquility. The service is impeccable and food could not be better. It is really worthwhile having some meals here. Fatima is a renown cook and... More

I took my mum for a few day's 'girl's' break and we loved every second of our stay. The place is absolutely magical. It feels more like staying in a private house rather than a hotel and Charles the owner made us feel right at home! It's a short walk from the souk yet feels like a million miles away... More

It was beautiful and the food and service outstanding. We were warmly welcomed by Charles and Agnes and the on site staff helped us throughout our stay and could not... More

Recently stayed 3 nights at the Riad El Arsat in Marrakech. The staff was all very friendly and accommodating. The owner Charles went out of his way to help us with whatever we needed. The property was beautiful and nestled right in the old district of the medina, immersed in the Marrakechi culture. Thoroughly enjoyed the resort-like stay at this... More

Very luxurious Riad with a great larger style pool conveniently located in the medina.. Great staff and breakfast. Very romantic and a good place to stay.. Walking distance from the square but peace and serenity inside the beautiful gardens..

A stunning Riad with an unrivalled welcome from the French family who have owned the place for many years - originally as a holiday home. A smaller Riad than many but with a sumptuous garden. We were lucky enough to have the pair of rooms with their own terrace overlooking the garden. An amazing set up. Food was also the... More

We found this place on-line and we were impressed by the reviews. I can safely say that it exceeded our expectations in every way. I visited with my wife and daughters 16 and 14. The Riad is exceedingly well situated in the centre of marrakech but once you step through it's gate it is like entering into another world. It... More

A special place to stay, an oasis in the Medina with gardens and a pool. Lovely hosts and staff who looked after us very well. A million miles away from a chain hotel. The food was great when we ate in, breakfasts were delicious and plentiful.
