This place is a hidden gem within the sometimes overwhelming medina. It is not signposted at all, not even above the door, so it may be necessary to ask assistance from a friendly local (for a dirham or two). The central courtyard is a tranquil retreat away from the hustle and bustle of the souks. The service was excellent, although there was a slight language barrier on occasion. Our room was ample, air conditioned and cleaned daily. The breakfast was above average and on the one occasion we had an evening meal, it was cooked and presented to a very high standard. Overall, a most enjoyable stay and a perfect base for exploring Marrakech.
