“Genuine Gem in Marrakech”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2010

This Riad was absolutely lovely, staff very friendly and helpful, but not pushy or intrusive. The food, breakfasts, homemade crepes, crumpets, pancakes, something different daily with homemade preserves and butter, lovely freshly squeezed orange juice and a bit jug of coffee, perfect start to the day. The evening meals were very good too, we ate here 3 nights out of 7 and had a different tangine each time which were the best we had in Marrakech during our stay and we ate at a variety of establishments costing from £4.00 to £25.00 per head. I would willing stay again, very comfortable and relaxing with a beautiful terrace and 5 minutes from the Mellah (Jewish quarter) and in the opposite direction 5 mins from the main square. ideally situated.

The moroccan Manager is really unpleasant, he should change the job. is trying to get money out of You wherever he can. Price of extras are much too high and he tryed to cheet us with the taxi-transfer and the Massage-Prices.
Beside him, there are constantly around 5-7 persons stuff at the Riad from 8 am-8pm, sounds great, but not, if they are behaving at its their own house, talking all day and running around non-stop, having breakfast, lunch and dinner together in the community rooms, supposed to be for the clients. Noisy and smelly! Terasse was full of their private laundry, so You really felt like at home!!! ;-)
The only moment, they really started to be nice to us was when we left...we didn´t tip!!!

This is a lovely place and the service was beyond any expectations we might have had. The staff and the owners went above and beyond - every day. We’d certainly stay here again and again
