Cannot fault this lovely Riad. We were a group of 16 ladies on a long weekend trip. Christophe and his wonderful staff could not have been more helpful. We had exchanged many emails before the trip as I had lots of different requests from the ladies, single beds, food requirements, guides, taxis, trips out ...etc. The list was endless but... More

For those who know what Riad’s are this is the one for you. For those who always stay at hotels you have to give this a try. It’s different, but good different. Christophe runs a great ship. With nice helpful staff who are always willing to help. I would highly recommend that you get Christophe to arrange transport for you... More

Thank you to Christopher and his staff for the wonderful experience in Marrakech. My friends and I fell in love with the Riad. It was nice to to come back to the relaxing Riad after the chaos of market shopping and long day trips. The rooms were all very clean and the garden and roof top terrace was beautifully maintained.... More

Just what you would want from a riad stay in Marrakesh. Comfortable, loads of character, lovely roof terraces and places to lounge. Friendly and welcoming staff. Dinner on the roof was great. Was a little further away from the centre than some riads, but nice quiet part of the medina.

My friend and I stayed here for four nights in March. The traditional design of the riad makes you feel at home right from the start with plenty of areas to relax, from the rooftop terrace to the pool in the reception. Our room was cleaned daily and we were welcomed with rose petals on the bed and with a... More

I would have liked the towels to be changed more frequently but they were nice and large and fluffy The rooms at night were cold but we were provided... More

We were very pleased with the riad. It is a bit awkward to find it as it is in narrow windy dead end alley off another windy narrow alley in the middle of the uncharted medina (old city). Even google earth and your gps will only be able to put a blinking dot in the middle of an empty area... More

such a perfect way to end a day of shopping, we only got to spend one night there, but it was wonderful. Arrived there after a day of haggling, getting lost in the souks and running out of money (we eventually found an atm that worked), and utilised the riad's spa menu (the hamam bath, body scrub and a 1hr...

My boyfriend and I booked a room there for one night after reading the excellent reviews of the Riad, but considering the low price we paid, we were still a little bit suspicious. Having arrived in Marrakech the day before and having largely got lost the first day, we disregarded the offer to be picked up by a member of... More
