The B&B is about 3 km north of Ait Benhaddou but easy to reach by foot or grand taxi. It is also possible to walk through the green fields close to the river, but we can only recommend this path while heading towards the main town (otherwise you could easily get lost). The staff was completely friendly and really cared... More

We were surprised by the genuine hospitality of the staff of this hotel. Our kids (age 8 and 10) felt at home and loved playing on the drums. The pancakes for breakfast were delicious, especially when eating them on the terrasse in the sun with a beautiful view on the palmtrees and mountains. Our kids called this the 5 star... More

Two families with kids had a really good time. Kids didn't want to leave, neither did parents. Great primal experience in the beautiful nature near Ouarzazate, with wonderfull hosts and food. Not to mention the evening drum lessons. :) Would recommend it to everyone. And you must try the traditional berber breakfast. It was a nice change from butter and... More

We stayed here for 1 night and wished we could stay longer! What a nice place! We had a really fun night with great talks and music with the very friendly host (and cook!) Abder and his brother. The rooms are big and beautiful, very clean also. And what a great view from the terrace(s). Just a 5 minute drive... More

We stayed for one night on our way to the desert. The owners are so lovely and make you feel at home. Our room had a beautiful view of the oasis from the private terrace. Only downfall was that the room was a bit dusty. Great for a one night stay to visit the kasbah.

This place was a real find. The rooms are basic, clean and cheap. So everything you want. Just make sure your up on the terrace for the sunset light show over the hills. We had dinner watching the sun set over valley on the terrace. Food was good, home cooked style and you need a really healthy appitie to be... More

This is a terrific little B&B on the road out from Ait Ben Haddou, with small but cheerful rooms, well-decorated, and with really gorgeous views over the valley. You can't quite see the ksar from here but it's atmospheric. The rooms themselves are basic and the bathrooms offer no amenities (in one of our rooms, there wasn't even a real... More

This is a small auberge at a reasonable price in a quiet, rather out-of-the-way location. The host made us feel very welcome, and we loved our room with its own private balcony overlooking the very scenic oasis below. We had very good and filling tajine and couscous dinners. My 3 negatives are that our room had a hand-held shower with... More

I absolutely loved this place. Its nice, its clean, and they make you feel very welcome. We had the best dinner, best tagine I've ever had,cooked by Brahim. We had a great time, with a bit of entertainment after dinner. I totally recommend this place!

We got a tip for this auberge at our previous place we stayed at - La Gazelle de Dades. After checking the address and finding out that the village (Asfalou) is some 4 km from Ait ben Haddou we had minor doubts if this is the right place to go, but then just decided not to search for alternatives and...
