“amazing stay! would recommend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

we were 2 girls stays for 5 nights in fossile room.before you go, write down the contact number in case you dont know the exact time of your arrival. when we arrived Youssef-the receptionist welcomed us with great mint tea and explained everything about marrakech. The riad looked amazing, nice style, the rooms very comfy and traditional, the terrase was spectacular!! every day we had complimentary tea and any problem we had- the stuff tried to help us. the were very friendly including the owner and cleaning ladies. the two receptionists (even the third one from the riad next door) were caring, helpful and friendly. the breakfast was very good fresh and tasty! its close to the centre, just 10-15min from the square.they arranged a free shuttle. would definitely recommend

we loved our time in this house.
- location: not so hard to find, very peaceful inside, dont get to hear prayer calling too loud
- staff: beshir explained sights and how to get to everywhere very clearly once we arrived; he showed up during breakfast and near dinner time to see if we needed him for anything and left us for privacy during most of the time (important, because at some other guesthouses the staff might seem to be too "hard-sell" i.e. wanting to bring you to their friends' stores to buy carpets etc); Layla is a very adorable, passionate, and kind lady. we love her warmth while talking to us, making us feel like a family (we left in a hurry and felt very bad that we forgot to take a picture with her :( Another staff, youssef, whom we didn't get to interact much also is a polite and helpful guy, just whenever we asked him about directions, taxi fare, those kind of things.
- breakfast was huge, Layla is very generous on the portion and pays attention to what you eat and not eat. she will give you more of what you ate the previous day :)
- house is cute and very clean. terrace and sun beds are very nice. it was too hot to go up there during the day. so we only went up to see amazing sunset and chatted looking up to the starry night at midnight.

The walk to the Riad was rather different, I mean small streets and definitely a difficult place to find. I would suggest booking the taxi service provided by the hotel trust me it's worth it. You don't want to get lost in Marakech, people will try to help you and if you fall for that they will then demand money. Even Bashir and Yousuf warned us about that. Bashir personally came and picked us up from the taxi and walked us to the Riad. Yousuf takes care of the place in the evenings. They both were great! On arrival Bashir drew us some maps of places to visit and things to see, they take their time in doing that which is perfect. Loved the mint teas served in unlimited quantities at any time of the day and night. Leyla and Fatima were also great making sure we were comfortable during our stay. Loved the breakfast! We even had dinner at the hotel Terrace which was set up with candles creamery cozy atmosphere. Loved it! One night I had a bad throat and Yusuf made me some hot tea... He is absolutely wonderful and goes above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. Overall a home away from home.

We spent a wonderful 5 days at the riad le coq fou in November. The owners could not have been more helpful, collecting us on arrival, drawing maps so we could find our way round the medina, just outside the front door and always interested in our day and plans. The hotel was small and beautiful, we had a private internal terrace overlooking the courtyard where we ate wonderful breakfasts, and access to a beautiful roof terrace where we drank wine in the warm evening sunshine and listened to the calls to prayer from the mosques. We loved this hotel, intend to go back and would recommend it to anyone

We had a wonderful three night stay at Le Coq Fou in April, 2011. The rooms were nice: we have three children (14, 11, 6) and the layout was perfect, with a small private courtyard and table between the kids' rooms and ours. The roof is amazing with great flowers. Best of all, however, was the service. Our travel plans changed; we left a bag in the desert hundreds of kilometers away; we needed other assistance, and Mohammed helped with everything. We even got our bag back. He was fantastic. The other staff were also great, but did not speak English. Thanks for a wonderful visit!!

If You are looking for true hospitality, a calm hide away and the most delicious Moroccain breakfast in Marrakech stop Your search in here. Not one second we needed to feel unsafe or unwanted in Riad Le coq fou. The breakfasts on the rooftop teracce were unforgettable; home made youghurt, pancakes and other delicasies. Thank You Fulvio and his excellent team!
Ps. An insider tip for dinner in the square; try out the stall number 14.
