Excellent service, many thanks to Ibrahim for his superb help. the rooms are clean, beautiful swimming pool, Terrace with view over medina and atlas mountains, however if you are there for the first time call the riad and ask for airport transfer, we don't ask for the airport transfer and we take a taxi in airport with an expensive price!!

The best service I have ever experienced. Ibrahim and Yousef treat you like royalty and really do everything in their power to make sure that your stay in Morocco is exactly as you want it to be. When they heard us talking about how we would like to visit the coast (some 200km away) they even arranged for us to... More

We could not have asked for more attentive and caring staff. Brahim and Yuseff were wonderful, especially with our youngest daughter who adored them both. The Riad is an oasis of quiet in the heart of the souks. The new pool is beautiful and provides restorative coolness after a long day out bartering. As a family of 5 we had... More

We were very optimistic about our stay at this Riad but it continued to disappoint. Despite multiple emails to them telling them that the airline changed our flight time they didn't seem to catch on. They did set up for a taxi to pick us up after we talked to them on the phone. The taxi took us to a... More

I stayed in this hotel in March 2010 for two nights -- overall, the hotel was average. The rooms were quite nice and the rooftop a perfect place to rest in the afternoon, but they just don't seem to have the details right. As other reviewers have said, the location is hidden away in a back alley. True, most riads... More

On arrival the first thing that totally underwhelmed us was the location. Situated in a back street off a back street off a back street. The riad has no entrance to speak of which explains the use of the impressive yet selective online photographs (fair enough I suppose). Our welcome was a confused affair as they had no record of...
