Five friends spent 5 nights here recently. We enjoyed the spotless comfortable bedrooms, the varied breakfasts, the relaxing areas on the roof, the friendly helpful staff and the location. They booked our trips for us and we were very pleased with the service provided. Warning!! We were approached on more than one occasion not long after leaving the Riad by... More

it is beautiful, comfortable, clean and the service, as promised, is outstanding. The roses-shampoo and soap add to the joy... We came in late, it was pouring rain, and Sa'eed welcomed us as if we were his family. The only down-side is that it is very hard to find. no signs pointing to it, no sign above it - it... More

We stayed here for 5 days in February and we had the most amazing time, the riad is beautiful, only a short walk from most things to do in marrakech. The staff are what really made our stay perfect though, they are all brilliant and welcoming and so kind. To name a few Sofian, Badr, Amadu, Yassine and Said took... More

Very lovely riad about 15 mins walk from the big square. Rooms are clean, beds comfortable, air conditioner works well and shower had hot water. This riad is really two houses joined together, hence two courtyards and lots of terraces plus there is a pool as well as hamman. What sets this riad apart are the fabulous staff. Each and... More

The Riad is built around two courtyards in what seems to be traditional Moroccan style.The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful; tea and coffee were free and beer and wine were reasonably priced; and were brought to your room on request. It is situated in the Medina just off the 'main' road that runs through it, although... More

The staff is very welcoming and friendly, the all decoration is Moroccan traditional, as the food (very nice breakfast and the tagines were wonderful).My girlfriend went to the spa to have a relaxing massage, and after one hour, she arrived to the room feeling new!! Yes, there are some cats and some things are not perfect, but this is a... More

the Riad is very dirty, particularly the bathroom. This is a huge concern because my 2 year old son was also with us. There was also another child's dummy under the bed (see photo). This is particularly worrying as my son could have picked it up and put it in his mouth. We were told we had to leave his... More

This is a great wee find. It doesn't have "ideas above it's station" Our room was decorated so nicely, in fact the entire Riad has a certain charm. Which is emphasised by the excellent service. All the guys couldn't be more attentive and when I mentioned I couldn't eat bread I was provided with an alternative breakfast (which was a... More

The staff was friendly, but their advises was not always the best, we found better places ourselves. One of the rooms we had was nice, the other very poor. The Hamam and pedicure was very overpriced and a bad experience. (the hamam was cold) This does not deserve to be called a spa. The place reeked of cat piss, especially... More

We booked this riad mainly due to the pool (that's why we spent a bit more), which could however not be used due to renovation works. The rooftop terrace was nice though and was good to relax in the sun. Staff was very friendly and helpful too. The riad is vey hard to find and it would be useful if... More
