This riad is well locales in the Medina. Easy to get to other places in the Medina and in town.

We really enjoyed our stay here. We stayed in a beautiful grey room at the ground floor (which was a little noisy when people were coming and going, but the hotel wasn't fully booked when we stayed here, so it wasn't the biggest problem). We stayed for a couple of nights, and the breakfast was really nice. The place was... More

BE CAREFUL WHEN YOU BOOK AT THIS HOTEL! The amount you pay for your room will depend on whether your room will include a PRIVATE BATHROOM IN YOUR OR AIR CONDITIONING (they will NOT INDICATE that when you are booking). We asked for a fan, and they stated they wouldn't provide one. We will not be returning to this hotel.... More

Good Guesthouse with authentic style. Find out what kind of room. Some are with separate toilet etc. Right in the middle of the old centre(Medina) no reach for taxi's. Douches, toilet and airco OK! Breakfast OK. Drink a beer ( ST. Michel)on the top terrace. Be careful with ordering taxi's to Airport (150 Derham of 13,50 Euro, not more). Pleasant... More

Loved, loved, loved this place! We wanted to be right smack in the middle of the old medina and we wanted a place packed with with old Moroccan charm, and we got it! In spades!

... "hidden" being the operative word as this lovely riad is terribly signed, but we were fortunate to have a taxi driver who knew exactly where it was and walked us to it. Apart from the near invisible signage, the hotel is lovely: exactly how you´d expect a Moroccan riad tucked away in a medina to look. Our host was... More

A real treasure! Beautiful Riad in the Medina, delightful, charming, like something out of "Casablanca" or "Lawrence of Arabia". The owner met me where the cab let me off and (thankfully) lead me through the maze to the riad. Nice roof top terrace with a view to the sea, breakfast is served here good place to kick back after exploring... More

A really nice riad in the middle of the medina. A bit tricky to find at first - we basically just stumbled upon it by chance - but easy enough to get to once you've got used to it. We stayed here for two nights in November and it was a lovely way to start our trip in Morocco. Our... More
