“oasis in chaos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014 via mobile

gteat place to stay in the medina. a stones throw from the very active souks n djmaa al fna. clean welcoming and safe. bit of a shock when the porter meets you st the square n off you go into the middle of chaos then gradually syreets get smaller and a big door. inside is wow. very relaxing beside pool in the shade to recharge for what marrakech has. in store. highly recommended

I spent one week at the riad and enjoyed every single second. The room was authentic, really beautiful. A perfect place to relax. The atrium is so calm, you would never imagine that you are directly in the middle of marrakech. The staff is helpful always smiling and fulfills every wish. Overall it was an excellent vacation and I am defenetly going back there!

Very pretty, well-kept small Riadh in the heart of the Medina in Marrakesh, which is surprisingly peaceful and tranquil, given its location. The facilities are basic (there's a tiny swimming pool which looks more like a pond in the courtyard and a very small hammam we only got to know of on the last day since it is used to store luggage!), but they don't leave anything to be desired. A large-ish roof terrace is available with sun-beds and tables and you can ask to have breakfast there, which we did.

All the rooms look onto the main courtyard, as is typical of a Riadh. We were given a suite for the first night as our reserved normal room was still occupied. We were not so happy to have to change rooms, but I have to say it turned out well as, although our room was on the ground floor (and the suite on the first floor), it was cosier and not as noisy as I had first imagined. The bathrooms are quite large and very clean, shower gel and soap are available, and there's one small travel hairdryer with the "receptionist" which can be borrowed if needed.

One complaint I'd have about the rooms is their very dim lighting ... although very romantic and created atmosphere, it was sometimes frustrating to look for things in the luggage!

Breakfast is simple Moroccan fare (delicious fresh orange juice, tea or coffee, Moroccan bread, butter and jam, and something sweet, which was different every day). It was quite enough for us in terms of quantity, but it would be a good idea if some cereals and/or yoghurt could also be made available.

The staff at the Riadh are extremely helpful and friendly. They were always on hand to answer any questions we had and, on one day when we had to leave for a very early excursion, they even provided us with some bread and cheese in lieu of breakfast.

Going through the madness of the Medina to get to the riadh was the only downside really, as the chaos or noise and people was a bit too much for our liking. If we had to go to Marrakech again I think we'd prefer a hotel outside the Medina.

We arrived at the Riad to a warm welcome. The room was attractive and clean but without a decent light it was impossible to relax in there properly. The room also backed directly on to the pool area so there was very little privacy and if you wanted the window open, people could see in. This meant that relaxing in our room became difficult when we needed a well earned rest from the hectic market.
The staff were very helpful and kind but a little more information about the facilities would have gone a long way. We were unaware that you could order drinks by the pool until we saw another couple doing it, it would have been helpful if this had been explained to us.

Breakfast was quite bare with toast, bread or pancakes and a piece of fruit. A yoghurt option would have been nice or maybe a variation of different fruits.

We had our clothes washed at the Riad. They did a good job, however a staple instead of a safety pin was used to pin the paper tag to my clothes. I was not impressed with this as it was an expensive item and needed to be treated with care.

Overall a lovely looking Riad that simply needed a few tweeks to make it great.

We stayed here at the beginning of november 2013 for a week.the transfer guy at the airport arranged for a porter to pick us up from the edge of jemaa el fnaa market and take us there.its location couldn,t be better with easy access to the bustling square and souks,restaurants.It is at the end of a very safe alleyway which is all residential.it is a complete sanctuary so peaceful and relaxing after long days exploring marrakech.We had the room at the top which was huge for two of us a four poster bed massive bath and great shower.The rooms were cleaned every day to a high standard.breakfast was bread jams cheese and pancakes all cooked when you sit down.We asked for a meal for one evening and it was delicious we were the only two eating there and felt like it was our own house .The staff were extremely helpful and informative.We,d visited a herborist last year that sold amazing jasmine argan oil,but prior to coming home we never found it again.We asked the man in the riad and he rang them and showed us where it was.All in all a brilliant stay and a great base we would definately stay there again.
