My wife and I stayed here for one night because there was no room for us in Riad Chayma nearby where the rest of our family were staying. We were not impressed. The place is generally tired and in need of refurbishment and the request for payment in full before we had even seen the room because "I am leaving... More

A perfect Riad in a perfect location. Staff very friendly and helpful. The best food we had in Marrakech. The roof terrace was a gem. Full of character and charm. Great value for money. Ideal for trips to the newton as well as to the soukes.
