“Great place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2011

We spent 3 nights at this riad, then came back for another night before our flight home.

The location is good - an easy 15 minute walk to the main square through the souks. The bedrooms are comfortable, and beautifully located around a central courtyard which is a welcome respite from the madness of the Marrakesh Medina. The breakfast varied every day, sometimes we got morrocan pancakes and sometimes cake, but always with fresh morrocan bread and jam, juice and coffee. We would definitely come back here if we were staying in Marrakesh again.

One final point - If coming straight from the airport, make sure your taxi driver know's where he's going, or book a pickup with the Riad - its down a few alleyways that you'd never find on your own!

A magic place to stay, in the centre of Medina, very very close to the souk, 15 minutes walking to La Place (if you don't get lost!). The dinner is good but expensive. You can have a fantastic Hammam in a Riad of the same owner, not far from there. The transport from and to the airport is too expensive!

As true Europeans and travelers without experience in Africa, we were shocked about the chaos in the streets around the hotel - it was true cultural chock. But when we entered the hotel riad, it was unbelivable peace and harmony, with warm, friendly staff and romantic atmosphere. We felt that we were part of Morocco in the hotel.

Beautiful old Riad in the medina and a short stroll to the Place. Decor is very Moroccan and not pretentious.
Wonderful room and facilities, especially for the price. Excellent staff and service. A selection of scrumptuos home cooked breads and beverages each breakfast. Would definitley stay here again and recommend to everyone.

Off the beaten track; but worth the walk to the place El Fna....good service and breakfasts; friendly and helpful....you;ll need help in finding it but worth the hassle...near a grand mosque!

I was nervous to visit Marrakesh alone - ( young, North American female), but they took good care of me at the riad. The staff was *beyond* helpful, the hotel was beautiful, and the other guests were very pleasant as well. I was impressed and would gladly stay there again.

However- there was no internet (the staff happily took me to a local internet cafe however), and the breakfasts were so-so (coffee, orange juice, and creps every morning. Could have been worse but ...) What the hotel lacked in technology and breakfast, it made up for with charm and friendliness though :)

My sister and I stayed 4 nights at this riad and enjoyed it very myuch. Refreshing little pool. Good breakfast and excellent service from our hosts Halima and Hafid. Have eaten at the riad twice. Be sure to ask the price before you order your meal. A 20 minute walk to the Place Jeema but very close to the souks. We strongly recommend this riad.
