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

We stayed in the this riad for one week. At first sight everthing was perfect.The ppl who run it are very friendly and helpfull. The room had its own hammam which was great. 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

We have had a wonderful time in Riad Armelle. It's like staying in an Arabic palace. Such beautiful ornaments: doors, lamps, beds etc.. The management and all the others are very friendly and helpful. We slept very well, despite the call for prayer at 5 am, it's quite nearby, so take earplugs with you if you wake up easy. The...

This is a beautiful and tranquil oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the Medina. The French owners, Armelle and Serge, have done an amazing job decorating the Riad making each room unique. All the staff were very friendly and provided great service. We initially stayed in the Indian Nights room (room 1) which is very attractively decorated but... More

The riad has nice decorated rooms. People are very helpful and kind. The food is good but much too expensive. Every tea you get has to be payed. Breakfast on the other hand is great. We had the room " La perle de l orient" with hammam. Very nice, The air conditioning was leaking and even after telling them it... More

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
