My two sisters and I stayed here for five days just a couple of day ago. We stayed in the Jasmin room (accomodates 2- 3 people).
The riad itself is just so peaceful with beautiful decor. The minute you enter, you are taken away from all the hustle and bustle of marrakech. On arrival, we were served mint tea and moroccon biscuits. The manager, Karim, sat down with us and talked us through the different things we could do in marrakech. Karim was just absoloutely wonderful during our whole stay, always willing to help and take his time to explain directions. All the other staff were lovely too, and so friendly.
The room was lovely, but because there were three of us, one person had to sleep on a camp bed which was just totally uncomfy. However, we ended up sharing the bed so two of us were sleeping on one.
The breakfast every morning was great. Slight variations every day so you don't get bored with the same things. The coffee was great, and the orange juice too.
The riad itself can be hard to find, especially on your first day when you are unfamiliar with the area (We got hopelessly lost!). However, by the second day we had found our bearings and could find the place with ease. The riad is located in small alleys but we were always safe walking through them, even at night as the area is well lit.
The riad is actually in good location, 15 mins walk to the square and about 25 min to the majorelle gardens.
We are very glad we booked this riad after alot of researching.
Thanks for a fab stay.
