“A warm reception”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

We stayed here after getting jerked around a bit by the hostel we originally booked. I really wish we had found this place originally as the one night we had was not nearly enough. It was a great respite from our less comfortable nights elsewhere in Marrakech. The owner (I believe his name was Ali) was genuine and outgoing and I encourage others to check this place out before booking a hostel. The price is very fair and the food/coffee hit the spot. The character and cleanliness were on par with the service. I would've loved to stay here a full week!

We had a couple of friends staying elsewhere and they allowed them to come over and eat breakfast with us for a very nominal charge. Customer service at its best.

The riad is managed by a french family. We were a group of 11 with many specific requests for room and food. They really took great care of us. Very hospitable couple. My flight was at 7AM in the morning, they had left breakfast for me on the table (including hot coffee!!) and the husband came to drop me to the taxi! I could not ask for more. Very friendly managers with excellent hospitality.

Just back from five nights at Riad Agathe. About a 20-minute walk NW of Djemma al Fna, absolutely quiet after 10pm, large airy rooms with good baths, _wonderful_ roof terrace with birds, small trees and sofas under awnings -- we spent a _lot_ of time up there after breakfast and in the evening before going out to dinner.

Ate in one evening (need to give notice at breakfast), excellent moroccan cold rice salad and a delicious pastilla.

Not much English spoken, but everyone speaks French, including the French-Algerian owner/manager, who was very friendly and helpful -- even took my son out to his local barber for a haircut and a cold-lather straight-razor shave!
