We stayed for 3 nights/4 days in this traditional old riad in the family 2 bedroom suite which was beautifully furnished and was cool and quiet - we all slept very well. Fantastic roof top terraces where you can see and hear the city with the Atlas mountains in the background - can't get much better than that! The staff... More

We stayed for 2 nights only but the Riad was just what was expected: old, traditional, cosy, and authentic. We felt as if not in a hotel but in a family house. It is very difficult to find in the maze that is the Medina, but once you get into the rhythm of Marrakech, it becomes so familiar that you... More

We chose this as it was well reviewed, good for the medina, and had a 2 bedroom family suite. The road can organise a taxi from the airport for you for 15Euro, considering the size of the suite we had it was very good value. Nice courtyards inside, one having a small outdoor pool. Rooftop restaurant and lounging area, all... More

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
