Ive just returned from 5 days in Marrakech, and I'd happily recommend this Riad to anyone going! From start to finish, the staff made us feel like we were paying far more than €70 a night. You are taken on a quick tour of the Riad, and given mint tea whilst you wait for your bags to be taken to... More

A lovely Riad in a quiet location but close enough to walk to the Souks and square for the night market. The staff are friendly and can't do enough to make your stay the best it can be. the room was clean and traditional. There are various roof terraces to sit and relax and enjoy the sun and views.

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!!

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
