“Fabulous base to experience all you want to of Marrakech”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

My friend and I stayed at this riad for 5 day in February. First of all have to really thank Yassine for making everything so easy for us. We decided to book the transfers to and from the riad and this made things very easy. Yassine met us at the taxi and showed us the landmarks we would need later to navigate our way back home! Very useful! Then we got there we were offered a drink and Yassine took the time to get to know what our plans were. He offered to help us with anything we needed and in fact we did book 1 excursion into the mountains through the riad. However because of this attention we ended up feeling slightly guilty when we sorted our own hammam treatment! The room was great with comfy beds and a fab shower and I was pleasantly surprised that it was bigger than we were expecting. Only one issue was that you could hear the noises from the courtyard at night and in the morning - some of the trips leave early so guests can order early breakfast. Breakfast was great for us, loved the cake and the generous glasses of freshly squeezed orange juice! We were late risers so sometimes hot water for tea was cool, but there was no problem in getting new hot water when we asked. Brilliant location, 10mins walk from the square but very quite and extremely atmospheric. There may be some issues as highlighted however the riad is priced appropriately. I would definitely come back if we were in Marrakech again.
One thing to remember at this time of year is it is cold in the mornings and evenings, so bring layers! We found the people in Marrakech very welcoming, yes people want to sell things and make a buck out of you, but if you are genuine and polite if you are not interested, people do take the time to chat and you get to know a lot more about what lies behind this amazing, colourful culture!!

It's located in the heart of the Medina, 10 minutes walk from the place Jamaa el Fna. Safe and quiet location. Clean. Friendly and helpful staff who will provide you good advice on what to do and where. They'll make you feel at home.

We were received like queens by yassine and nadia and good teas on the terrace with a beautiful view over the rooftops of Marrakech, absolutely delicious dishes in private rooms, all for a good value for money. The riad is very well located and is very quiet so far. Very welcome and staff always listen to us.

Room Tip: A remake with great fun!

This a quite and nice decorated Riad. It's a 10 minute walk from the real center, but certainly worth taking that distance. The young owner gives a lot off good advice and help!
The breakfast is yammie!

If I ever go to Marrakech, I will certainly go there again!

Located 5 min walking from the souks of the medina, this riad is a great option if you are looking for an affordable place with very good conditions. It's super clean, the breakfast is delicious and the owner is extremelly helpful and friendly. You won't regret!

We stayed three days at this hotel and I must say it was the best decision we could have possible made. Very comfortable beds, amazing breakfast and friendly service from Yassine and his wife. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to experience living in a real moroccan Riad.
