This Riad is a real gem! Everything, from the stylish antique interiors and spacious, comfortable rooms to the attentive service, exceeded our wildest expectations.
It's only a few minutes walk to the Souk (near the Ben Yousef Mosque and the Marrakech Museum), and even closer (100 yards) to our favourite restaurant and bar, Le Fondouk.
Above all (no pun intended) we loved the big, cosy roof terrace looking out over the Medina. Here, we drank rosé wine and watched the beautiful North African sunset while the muezzin called out the evening prayers. The terrace is separated into different sections, allowing for privacy as well as bigger parties. Breakfast, and an unlimited supply of coffee and water, was available completely free of charge.
The charming hosts, Michel and Brandon, who even invited us to lunch with them on our last day, really took care of us throughout our stay and made us feel very much at home. (They both speak English as well as French, as do the Moroccan staff).
