Riad 12 is a small (3 room) property and is well located - 10 minute walk to the souks and 15 minutes to the central square. Our room was very large but the bathroom was a little small but adequate. Breakfast, included in the price, was good. On the negative side, the riad could do with some freshening up and,... More

Riad 12 is on a lovely street, where the souks are slightly more boutique like and the area is slightly calmer. It is only a 2 minute walk to the main souks though and a 10/15 min walk to the main square. The riad is beautifully decorated and is a tranquil haven! Our room was large and cool and the... More

You quickly learn in Marrakech that behind unassuming little doors off dusty narrow streets are places of peace and beauty. We found the location of this Riad ideal for exploring the Medina and a joy to return to after the hectic pace of street life. Staff were always smiling, polite and very helpful. Thoroughly enjoyable few days. Have to mention... More

The Riad is located at Dar el Bacha in the Western part of the old Medina and is a great place to set off from for any and all the parts of the old city. The Riad itself is less opulent than some of the others and has a sort of Italo-Moroccan fusion feel. It's very elegant and very clean... More

lovely riad, tucked away down a somewhat dilapidated back alley. Only three rooms, tranquil and beautiful. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. Would like to stay here again.

3 rooms with huge luxury beds and bathrooms but it is the peaceful relaxation that is best. Nothing is too much trouble and it is all done quitely behind the scenes, e.g having a real fire in the lounge at the end of the day. Very clean, good food and Hanane is charming.

A stunning Riad hidden in back alleys of the Medina it is in an ideal position from which to explore central Marrakech. The Riad is elegant and beautifully furnished. It is staffed by Hanan and Essaid who could not have been more helpful and were a useful source of local knowledge. As a city Marrakech far exceeded my expectations. Lots... More

Only 3 rooms in this small hotel, luck had it that there was no one else here. A small plunge pool, delightful roof terrace, fantastic staff, beautiful rooms. Seriously one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. We had a massage one night, which was fantastic. Hannan is the manger, and she can arrange reservations at the best... More
