Enjoyed our stay in this nice Riad. It is only a short walk through some stores, market stalls and acroos a bridge to Ait Ben Haddou. The rooms were quaint and comfortable and we had a sitting room where you could relax. There is a pool in the centre of the complex and a roof terrace with grat views. Cafes... More

Ok I'll start out with the positives. The location is great, just across the street and a few minutes walk from Ait Ben Haddou. The pool looked amazing and would be great to enjoy in hot weather. The food was delicious and the restaurant staff very accomadating. The rooms where very large. Ok for the negatives, it was unusually cold... More

Nice and beautiful decorated hotel on walking distance from the breathtaking old town of Aid Ben Haddou. Very friendly staff, reasonable restaurant and nice rooms, the double rooms with a seprate bedroom and entrance room to sit and read or talk. View of the kasbah from the roof. Great value for your money.

A very nice riad with a pool in the center and rooftop terrace. They have a large dining room and we did have a great dinner and breakfast. Our room had a sitting area with a fireplace (no fire), bedroom that could have slept three and bathroom. The bathroom was a little odd but I did remind the husband that... More

This is a lovely little Riad, having about 16 rooms. The rooms are charmingly and simply decorated, with working Air Conditioning & functional hot water. Comfortable beds, very clean, and lovely & helpful staff. Easy communication in English, French or Spanish. The only caveats to this place is that the pool is REALLY cold, and I would avoid the Pizzas... More

We spent a night here and were extremely pleasantly surprised to find such nice rooms for the amount of money we paid. The whole Riad has really nice character and the individual rooms are no exception. They were small suites made up of a bedroom and a living room with a fireplace. The pool was very nice to cool down... More

Part III of Moroccan adventure with my boyfriend - passing through the Atlas mountains. We arrived quite late and were tired from driving, and to be honest we only stayed in this hotel because we couldn't be bothered to search for other options! The room prices are negotiable, although we decided for what we got the price was still too... More

This hotel is located in the film making region of Morocco. While there are many other hotels in the area, this Riad is clean, well-managed, and very adequate. The bathroom was a bit odd as the sink was a small bowl with no shelves. The shower was nice, and had a window you could open and look outside. The roof... More

Nice exterior and a good looking pool area. It was February when we travelled, so too cold to try out the water. Mint tea on arrival and friendly reception. Room was spartan, with hard beds, but clean. Heat pump worked - which we were glad of because we needed it, and there was decent hot water. Lack of shelves in... More
