We stayed in this riad for 2 nights in the 2 bedroom suite. We stayed in 5 different places on our Moroccan trip and this one was very pretty and with a great staff. Pros: The riad is gorgeous and I LOVED the rooftop decks. The 2 bedroom suite was absolutely STUNNING, we loved everything about it! Beautiful ceilings, fixtures,... More

Reading other reviews one realises how subjective this is. It's all down to expectations and experiences! Let's start with the positives: if you want a traditional riad experience in a handy location, good food, pleasant staff, lovely seating areas on terrace, good levels of cleanliness, excellent massages then look no further. On the downside: the rooms are very variable in... More

A little hidden away and you wonder how you will ever find it again after following the taxi driver through a maze of alleyways but once through the door you are in an oasis of calm. we slept so well with hardly any noise as there is no traffic noise. the rooftop terrace was beautifully laid out with areas of...

We stayed here for 3 days on our trip to Marrakech and it was absolutely wonderful. I loved how authentic of an experience we recieved, and the staff were beyond wonderful. I would highly recommend anyone to stay here - it was clean, peaceful and everyone was fantastic. We used the spa as well and had a wonderful experience. The... More

This was a very authentic quaint spa hotel, and an experience of a very pleasant and individual Riad. The taxi could only get so near the hotel, then the driver walked us round through alley ways to the front door (we did wonder where on earth we were going to, but have faith!). When you go through the front door,... More

Very nice Riad in a quiet corner of the Medina. The rooms are very stylish, the staff super friendly and the roof terrace a nice place to relax from the busy city. Would recommend it to all travelers!

I wanted a hotel that gave you a real Moroccan feel rather than a hotel where you could of been anywhere in the world. This Riad did not disappoint... beautifully decorated in traditional style with an amazing roof top terrace. Yes it was down a few alley ways and yes we did get lost, but true to their word, a...

We have just returned from a city break in Marrakech. We stayed four nights at this Riad. Taxi from airport dropped us at the nearest point to the Riad and the driver was kind enough to accompany us to the door which we would NEVER have been able to find ourselves. It was through a very narrow maze of alleyways,... More

The riad was beautifully presented with fantastic, friendly staff who ensured that we had everything we needed for our stay. Close to the souks, it was easy to walk in the medina and the instructions provided by the riad made it easy (or as easy as it can be in the souk!) to get back in the afternoons. The terrace...
