Super place to stay if you are on a budget. Very lovely and traditional Riad with very clean well presented rooms. We had the cheaper room so it was small with no terrace, but still very quaint. Riad staff are really welcoming, friendly and helpful. Weather was wonderful with a fantastic roof terrace, the restaurant was in a Moroccan tent... More

We stayed here for two nights and were sorry to leave so soon. The Raid itself is stunning, the rooms comfortable, the rooftop terrace gives an amazing view of the old city. The staff was so nice, helping us with our every need, most of them spoke english which was convenient. When one of us got sick on the last... More

A beautiful Riad hidden away in the Medina, excellent facilities, clean towels every day and a great breakfast to start the day with. Just a 10 minute walk from the city centre's hustle and bustle, yet very quiet at night. After an exhausting day of site seeing, my husband I were able to enjoy mint tea on the terraced roof,...

We only found this gem of a place on our last night in Marrakesh before heading home, and wish we had found it earlier! Perfect location, away from the hustle and bustle of Djemaa el Fna main square but easy to get there and back. The staff were very at ease and welcoming, there really was an authentic 'riad' atmosphere... More

The architecture is absolutely beautiful, the surroundings are tranquil in a very central part of Marrakech. Makes you feel like you are truly experiencing the cultural side of Marrakech. The staff were extremely friendly. They helped us with anything we required from taxi bookings to getting to making sure we made it for our tours and so forth. The rooms... More

The riad itself is very charming and authentically decorated in Moroccan style,which is a nice welcoming treat. However neither my husband or I had a wink of sleep during our 5 night stay there, because all night long the cats are fighting and crying, screeching all night running through the riad, in fact they sounded like babies screaming to begin...

My friend and I stayed here for 3 nights during the fifa club championships. The pick-up service worked well... The rooms are clean and nice. Just keep in mind, that it's a traditional marrocan guesthouse and not a western style hotel. Room was clean and spacious for the two of us. Extra bed was no problem. Bathroom and toilette also...
