“A true gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

I live outside Marrakech, and whenever I have friends visiting who want the Riad experience we stay here. It is wonderfully located on a quite side street and the decorations are simple yet elegant. The rooms are clean, the showers are hot, and the wifi and breakfast are free! The breakfast is different everyday, but what stays consistent every morning is the amazing spiced coffee! It is a great place to stay if you are looking for a more upscale budget accommodation, great deal for the price. The staff are also super helpful and once drove my friend and I to the train station when we needed to catch a 5am train. I have stayed at more expensive riads and the service just doesn't compare. This place is a true gem!

Room Tip: I like to stay on the middle floor. The ground floor rooms, while nicely decorated, can get kind of...

This is the first time I have written a review on trip advisor and only because this was a fantastic place (palace) to stay. I was lucky to be highly recommended this Riad by a friend who is currently living in Morocco and I was not disappointed. The Riad is tucked away just a stone's throw from the main square in a private and welcoming area. The Riad is in a beautiful condition with all the colours and atmosphere you would expect from these historic town houses and was the best part of my trip to Morocco. The staff were genuinely amazing and helpful on all occasions. It was a dream to stay in this Riad and I couldn't recommend it more highly to others.

Room Tip: My favourite room was the one overlooking the reception

another Riad in the heart of the Medina and a short walk from the El Fna Square and still away from the noises.
the people who run it are very welcoming and do their best to make sure you have a great stay.
the lady that does breakfast is lovely and every day had a different specialty to go with the usual bread, butter, jam, honey. my favourite was a marbled cake and a kind of eggy bread but sweet. :-)
there is an array of terraces and good views. I practiced my Tai-chi every morning on one of them accompanied by the song of lovely birds.
oh, there is also a lovely, friendly cat called Leo.
The free WiFi is also a bonus.

we had a wonderful experience at this riad. its a beautiful space with a central yet secluded location. the house is beautifully decorated, ver well maintained and the best part of staying here was the common spaces. our hosts were extremely helpful and welcoming. the fact that they are multilingual was an added bonus. they provided us with a map, marked all the important sites in the area and provided us with good direction/tips on how to get around. they even offered to give us a wake up call at 3am in the morning on our last day and dropped us to the bus station. i'm very grateful for this.

p.s. i know that this is important to a lot of travelers so i will mention it in so many words - THE BATHROOMS ARE GREAT.

Excellent location, 5 minutes walking from Djema el Fna square, charming and calm riad, wonderful staff, always ready to help, very good services, and the best Tajine in Morocco, the girls in the kitchen made a wondeful dinner for me and my friends.
A place to reccomend in Marakech.

Great location, 5 min from Jemaa al Fna square. Beautiful Moroccan style rooms and the whole riad. Very quite even thought in the center of Medina. Wonderfull staff, the hosts Najib and Samir will help you with every single thing you might think of and they speak fluent arabic, french, english, spanish and probably more. Great breakfast included in the price: spicy Moroccan coffee, fresh orange juice, fresh Moroccan bread, butter, honey and always a sweet dish to end the breakfast. Very friendly girls serving. Wonderfull roof terrassa to escape the hottest sun or to cool off at night. No problem with the cleaning. Probably one of the cheapest riads in Medina. Price/quality= 10!!! A perfect place for accomondation and with the atmosphere you´ll get even more that you ask for. Nothing bad to say: full recomendations!!!

We were moved to this guesthouse from another riad - it is very clean, very attractive, very quiet and highly recommended. It is well located near to the square and the staff are extremely helpful. We were taken to the airport by the manager himself in his own car!

Room Tip: I would think all the rooms are lovely as it is quiet, airy and very clean
