We have just spent 4 nights in a very mediocre Riad in Marrakech, in comparison to this it was a 5 star hotel. We checked in for our 3 night stay and went upstairs. We decided to drop our bags and go straight outside to explore. After a few hours we returned to have a siesta in the room. The... More

Myself and friends decided last minute to spend a couple of days in Essaouria for a well deserved break from the heat of Marrakech. We turned up at the hotel and the people were nothing but lovely to us on our arrival. The lady on the desk was very welcoming and was great at arranging a massage for us last... More

We stayed in Riad Etoile for three nights last week. The Riad is right across a small alley from a very popular hamman, which stays busy till after midnight. The room was dusty - but all of the area is dusty. Bathroom was small, but worked with lots of hot water. Breakfast was okay, but the coffee was weak. Basically... More

Good value for money. Reasonably clean. Amazing breakfast served on the terrace and pleasant staff. And easy to find as it is just off one of the main streets in the medina. Can be a bit noisy but everything settles down between 10 & 11 pm so not too much of a problem.

The hostel is okay if you want to stay here only for a day or two. Otherwise I wouldn't recommend it. The room wasn't very clean, I am not sure if the bed sheets were fresh and the shower is a gamble. Sometimes water comes out sometimes not. Sometimes its too hot sometimes it is cold. However the breakfast is... More

Value for money, nice breakfast, friendly staff and centrally located, would recommend. Within walking distance of the souks and the beach. Don't expect a power shower but there was plenty of hot water and the room was very clean. Would stay again.

We booked the quintuple room with an en suite bathroom.The breakfasts that are included are enormous and delicious! The common areas had a great vibe to sit and read or get a... More

The owner is a very friendly dedicated man, loved the guy! We stayed for 4 nights in a double room in this beautiful Riad. The room was clean and we had clean towels everyday. Great breakfast at the rooftop! Bathroom was not very special, but suited our needs. We would recommend this Riad if you like to be in the... More

We spent two nights here during the Gnaoua Festival. The staff were welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. The Riad is beautiful inside and located right in the heart of the Medina. A short walk to the beach, restaurants and shops directly below. We stayed in a junior suite which a good size for four adults but was quite dark.... More
