Great Riad in the Medina. Manager and staff where extremely helpful and very efficient. They were a pleasure to deal with and were a mine of information on the delights of the Medina and Morocco in general. The Riad was a haven of peace and quiet after the noise and confusion of the Medina. Bedroom air condition was very welcome... More

I arrived at the Riad in quite a state, having had great difficulty finding a taxi driver who knew where the Riad was. Upon arrival, I was greeted by Armelle herself and made to feel so welcome. She went out of her way to make sure that I was given a room which was to my liking. I chose the... More

Stayed here in February for a week with our 14 month old baby and had a great time. Charming building with a superb double courtyard and roof terrace. Food exquisite each night (we ate in due to having a little one). Staff were the friendliest I've encountered, from the breakfast team the room staff and evening. All went to great... More

We have just spent a delightful week at this beautiful Riad hidden in the Medina. It has been lovingly restored by its French owners and its a gem, very quiet and peaceful and very authentic. Our experience was nothing like that of the last reviewer and we were treated with nothing but respect and helpfulness by all of the staff.... More

We stay here for 10 days. Beautiful rooms in oriental style, very clean. The roof terrace is great to relax and switch off from the souks and Jemaa el Fna. Each 3-course dinner was great prepared and varied local cuisine. All the staff were very friendly and helpful, special requests (mint tea, delicious!) were not a problem. Special thanks to... More

This place is horrible - the service is the worst my husband and I have ever encountered (and we travel frequently!). Their credit card machine at this supposed riad wasn't working - we tried 4 different cards which we were using without any trouble all over Morocco - and the lady accused us of having bad credit. We then told... More

Unfortunatly we had 2 windows facing the town and hence the room was quite noisy. After 3 days we had a leacking airconditioning system and even after... More

We stayed in this lovely riad for 3 nights. On arrival we were warmly greeted and offered tea. The riad is beautiful and has been lovingly restored by its owners. There are plenty of places to sit and relax, including a lovely roof terrace. It is in the heart of the medina but incredibly quiet. I am a light sleeper... More

Surprise 2 night stay for my wife's birthday. Lovely welcome from French owners with tea and sweets. Ground floor bedroom (no problem with noise) with traditional Moroccan furniture, very comfortable. Power failure during first evening did not prevent the staff serving a very nice meal, by candle light. All food was beautifully presented. Owners had recently increased accommodation to 15... More
