“Traditional Riad to experience local life in Marrakech”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

Small, traditional riad tucked away in a residentail part of the old medina, where local families live. About 20 miinute walk to Djemaa el fna. If you want to really experience life in the walled city, in an authentically decorated riad, then consider staying here. Run by a French couple, the riad is a short walk through a busy market thoroughfare from where a taxi or transfer drops you off. The rooms are on ground and first level, with one on the roof terrace - which is a lovely place to relax after a busy day taking in the sights of Marrakech. Robert is a fantastic cook, so do eat at the riad one evening. Not a luxury riad but comfortable. If you are very anti smoking then perhaps not for you as the owners smoke. To me it is one of the nicer places to stay to really experience Marrakech.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2012

This Rhiad is beautiful and in good condition, it is run by a French couple. Who were very nice.
We had a double room on the first floor, which was furnished in a traditional Moroccan style. We are both non smokers, the owners smoked a lot so we constantly had the fumes entering our room, which we found unpleasant!

The Rhiad is located some 20 minute walk from the main square. The walk is quite challenging (we are both 50) as the alleys you must pass through are packed with people and many scooters sounding there horns and bumping you out of the way! At times the fumes were overwhelming.

Refreshment were no where to be found near the Rhiad, at times we found the thought of the walk to the square and back, to eat distressing. Cooked main meals were available in the Rhiad, but no other refreshments were offered.

We would not recommend this Rhiad purely because of its location. Taxi's can not get near either.
