STAFF STEALS at this hotel. The chambermaid stole all the money from my suitcase in my room. My friend had her winter boots and souveniers stolen from her room! Be careful! Then they deny the fact! THEAVES!

After wandering around viewing loads of different Riads we were pleased to pick this one. only stayed for one night but the owner was very friendly and welcoming. great value for money. The breakfast was also good and was in with the price of the room.

We (a family of 3) stayed in the Ali Baba for two nights. While we thought the room and the hotel were very nice with a lovely overall classic decor, others in our tour group had very bad experiences with bed bugs.

Stayed here for 3 nights with my girlfriend. We wanted somewhere cheap but nice. Choosing it was a bit random - in Marrakesh several locals had called me Ali Baba due to my moustache and goatee beard so I saw the sign for this Riad and thought I'd check it out. The guy on reception, who I think was the... More

Every room has an amazing decoration, a lot of care has been put into the look. The staff was very friendly, on every level. They served breakfast on a pleasant terrasse and put great care into our satisfaction. The location is very convenient (though the medina is very small so every hotel would be quite close). In some rooms the... More

You get what you pay for here, so it's basic, but with a good location, and a couple of super lovely staff members, it's worth staying. The daytime staff guy made me tea when i got sick, gave me advice of how to get better, and even cooked my girlfriend a special birthday breakfast.

I stayed here for 2 nights with my boyfriend, not long after arriving a case of food poisening caught up with me. I believe it was from some street food in Marrakesh the night before. After a few hours of riding the porcelain bus I asked if I could get some peppermint tea to try to sooth my stomach, the... More

We spend 2 nights in this riad and its good value for money. first day we have problems with the light of the room, and that gave us a pretty unconfortable feeling cause it was dark and humid. Next day when they fixed it was much better . The room had a window and small table outside of the room... More

We stayed here last minute due to our other accom being double booked… so we didn’t know much about the place beforehand but it turned out to be a good experience. The best thing about this place was the location – right on the main road in the old medina (no cars), slightly to the south so in the heart... More
