Stayed at this riad for a week in march. The place is difficult to find but people were very helpful. This is a nice place to relax after a day in the noisy medina. Its very quiet, and several places to sit and maybe have some tea. The rooms are nice and clean, and the personnel are very service-minded. The... More

Had a lovely time in a very homely and calm environment! The homemade breakfast (prepared by Radia) was great. It is close to the Souks and the square. (Had quite a hassle initially getting there in the 1st place - so get them to arrange for a taxi to collect you - I only found this out when we left... More

I had never been to a Riad before, and was not disappointed. The place is calm, rooms are of an OK size and OK cleanliness, the breakfast is great (everything locally made, good quantity and perfect service). Location is great, close to everything in the medina, but getting to the Riad the first time is not easy. If you don't... More

We really loved this riad! It is such a nice home in a bustly neighbourhood. Rooms are nice and clean. Elisabeth is a very nice hostess and very helpful. Only one small thing to consider: the riad is thin-walled.

This riad is wonderful! Very close to the main square, and souks...but a peaceful sanctuary in the heart of the action. Elisabeth and Radia were wonderful hosts. Amazing breakfast (all homemade by Radia!) Beautiful courtyard & rooms...lovely sunny roof terrace. Staff was very helpful with anything we needed. Couldn't recommend this place enough. We won't stay anywhere else in Marrakech.... More

Beautiful modest little riad, Dinner is excellent and there is really no reason to eat anywhere else. Exceptionally quiet and peaceful. Not too easy to find . If arriving at night get a taxi transfer arranged by the riad or seek explicit instructions. (Turn into Derb El Kabir and take the second little alley on your left about 100 metres... More

The riad is located just 10 minutes from the main square of Jema El-Fna. Staff was service minded and attentive, and made us feel welcome at once. I would say that the best thing about this riad was that it is centrally located, but at the same time it is very quiet and peaceful. I had some of my best... More

Upon arriving in Marrakech, we didn't know where to go (this is one thing that could definitely be improved on the website - just the little map on there isn't really enough.) We told the slightly confused taxi driver where we would like to go, and after driving across the Djemaa el Fna, and then up the busy side street,... More
