“Nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

A very decent place for my family to stay. The location of the hotel is the other side of Jemaa El Fnaa market. Arrange with the hotel beforehand and they will have a porter come and collect you from the outskirts of the the market and walk you straight to the hotel's door step (my airport transfer kindly organized this with the hotel for us so we didn't need to do this). My 5 yr old had great fun sitting in the porters cart and being wheeled the 15 mins that it took us to get there. You will be near the stalls, souks, restaurants, the stray cats and the smell from the snail stalls so the location is pretty good. Our room was the last room up the stairs on the top of the hotel adjoined to the roof (could be an issue during summer as other hotel guests might want to come upstairs and sit and chat outside disturbing your sleep). It was OK size for the 4 of us but if we were living in it all day then I would have to say its a bit of a squeeze. Aesthetically the room was traditional looking with a modern twist. It was immaculately cleaned daily with the bathroom having hot water. Breakfast is continental and OK (no buffet fry up I'm afraid) and the hotel staff are great. Dont expect your room to have normal mod cons. No TV, no phone, no kettle and no iron. The wifi is only accessible from the communal area so that's a pain if you wanna catch up on Downtown Abbey from the comfort of your own bed. You have Forex bureau literally round two corners from where you will staying so no problems changing cash (take the alley with the big pink sign for the Marrakesh museum and it on your left) and no its not a swimming pool in the communal area but a large water thingy that looks quite nice and relaxing.

This hotel is more or less based in the heart of Jamaa El Fnaa so you have no problems getting to souks, markets, reasturants, cafes etc as itis literally a 2 min walk from the hotel. One advice would be is ring the hotel before you are dropped of from the airport as no cars can go to the hotel direct and the hotel is in a bit of an alley way and will be hard to find, the staff were very friendly and arranged to pick us up from the drop off point which was very helpful. Beware of alley way the hotel is based at an end of a big alley way but for us we felt safe as there mainly residents living in that alley way. The hotel is very calm and peacful and a place of serenity especially when you come back from the hustle and bustle. Be warned when you book a Superior room "THEY ARE NOT SUPERIOR" but are classed superior so when i came and was given this room i complained and asked if this was superior they said it was. The staff knew i was very unhappy so they gave me a "SUITE" instead which was very nice of them. If you are claustrophobic then i would recommend a suite. I did sometimes find that the bed sheets were changed but found it unclean on a copuple of occassions. Breakfast is very standard, orange juice, tea/coffee, bread, pancakes etc. All in all this hotel was great i would definatley come back to this hotel but not Marrakech!

Room Tip: Order a Suite and not a Superior as the "superior" is not really superior

Very quiet although located in a heart of medina. Location perfect for exploring Jemma el fna and the medina. Very stylish and clean interiors, nice breakfast. It had got a little swimming pool. I'd stay again.

I have never stayed in a Riad before - but I really enjoyed my stay here. There is a lovely central courtyard with a pool and every morning you are woken by bird song. The rooms are spotlessly clean and very individual. The showers are good and there is air con (I did not need it because the rooms are pleasantly cool). The Wi-Fi is free and a reasonable speed. There is a nice roof terrace with good views. I chose this hotel based on Trip Advisor ratings and one consistent comment was that the breakfast was always pancakes. I am pleased to report that the hotel has obviously taken this on board, because we had a different sort of traditional cake or bread (along with ordinary bread) every morning - the breakfasts were actually very nice.

Fantastic location right next to Jemaa el Fna, though without the noise. Beautiful, charming Riad with a friendly, english-speaking staff. Breakfast the only thing to complain about, but you get some food, tea/coffee and superb orange juice. And the local cuisine is just up the Derb... Perfect place to stay in Marrakech!

Even as seasoned travellers, we were unprepared for the assault on the senses we experienced being dropped off at the far side of Jemaa El Fna and walking the 10 minutes across the square with our cases. However, the Riad offered us a quiet, peaceful and totally unexpected sanctuary in the middle of all the bustle, noise and frenetic activity. Quite simply, it made the holiday for us. Every time we left the Riad to visit the souks, or explore the local area, we returned, hot, tired and dusty to an oasis of calm and sanity, which quickly restored our energy. The staff were attentive and the rooms were exceptionally clean. The plunge pool proved a blessing as we visited in mid August. Because the Riad only has a few rooms, which are all individually decorated, it felt very exclusive and everyone was incredibly friendly when discussing the days adventures. Would highly recommend this jewel in the city.

The pictures really do this place justice, absolutely beautiful restored riad and perfect place to stay. Just a stone's throw from the souks and Jemaa El Fna but a calm, peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle. Lovely rooms, all individual as far as I could tell. There is a pleasant seating area on the roof and a few sun loungers. The staff were so helpful and kind. They helped with porters and travel arrangements that were meant to be arranged but were lacking with our travel company. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: You can here barely anything from the outside world but the open nature of the riad and the old wood...
