“Nice hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2011

Very nice rooms in a quiet marakech place. Not that far from the central square. Rooms are nicely decorated. Bathroom a bit outdated though. Breakfast was ok-ish. Friendly service.

From the very start this Riad were so helpful and inviting. I booked this place for 4 nights 3 months before and last minute some friends decided to join us. The Riad were fully booked but accommodated them a day before I arrived and were extremely helpful with this process.
When I arrived the calm, soothing vibe away from the hustle and bustle of the street immediately relaxed me. My friends were singing the praises of all of the staff who had been so helpful and friendly.
The rooms and main area are authentic and beautiful making it clear to see how wonderful the Moroccan people are.
We wanted to do some trips which we spoke to Jaswad the manager about, he gave us so much information and sorted this for us last minute. We didn’t have enough cash on us so had to take more money out and he kindly offered us a discount to account for the fees we would incur.
All of the little touches about this place made out holiday a memorable one. Thank you to all of the staff!

Stayed in this riad for a 5 day break and everything about the stay was excellent, from the collection at the airport, the warm and friendly welcome, very helpful people, right through to the end.
I would heartily recommend it as a great place to stay in Marrakech. It fet like a home in a city that I'd never visited before and I would love to go back again one day.

This was our second stay. Still loved it and will return again. This year my son took a friend with him . The wow as he walked into the riad's courtyard said it all. Stayed in the two rooms at the far end upstairs this time and we were all happy with the size etc. I think this riad is in a great position with no need for taxis when visiting most of the old town. We went to Imlil with the driver from the riad and had a fantastic day. Would recommend using him. Look forward to going back again next year. Inshallah .

Read mixed reviews ahead of arrival and we booked taxi via the Riad for ease and were met by Hussain at the taxi (Euro15 each way). Short walk through alleys to lit large wooden door to cool, clean space. Mint tea provided and assisted with luggage to our room. Room on the first floor, large bed with air conditioning and shower/wc.

Breakfast provided each morning, coffee, orange juice, bread, jam and pastries/local pancakes. Meals could be booked as well as trips and beverages brought during the day. Supermarket short walk through the market and wall, located under Riad Mogador - good for fruit and treats.

Would stay again if in Marrakesh given location to square and restaurants

Local restaurant opposite the Katoubia mosque - Portofino Italian air conditioned restaurant which has good pizzas and fresh well presented salads, peppered steak also very good. Coffee shop on the corner in same location good to watch the hectic world pass you by.

We stayed here in October 2010 and really enjoyed it. It's a very small riad with approx 6 rooms, with a little pool ( didn't venture in but looked nice!). The rooms were nice, pretty basic but perfectly adequate considering you don't spend too much time in your rooms. The staff were extremely friendly and helfpul, breakfast was minimalistic but we enjoyed all the local pastries and cakes provided. Nicely located, however down loads of little alleys so hard to find at first!

I have just returned after a 4 night stay here with a friend. I had read reviews, good and bad but decided as I always do, find out for myself. I'm glad I did. The Riad was lovely, the staff very helpful. There is obviously a language barriar but if you can speak pigeon French you can get by. We had clean towels on the 2nd day. There was plenty of hot water. The breakfast was pleasant, tea, coffee, juice, bread and pastries. We had breafkast 30 mins before the normal time on our last day so we could leave for the airport. The Manager arranged a transfer from the airport for us. When we arrived we had a welcome drink and a chat with the manager to find out about the local area and where to visit. We didn't waste any time, got changed into something more appropriate (38 degrees) and found the main square where we got the tour bus. I can recommend doing this. There are 2 routes and your 24 hr ticket covers both. All the tourist attractions are relatively close to each other and it is easy to get around. We had quite a bit of trouble getting taxis and when we did, they wouldn't agree on a price, trying to charge way over the correct amount. On our last night the riad arranged for their driver to take us to a local restaurant (Al Fassia - run and owned by women, highly recommended) and I wish we'd used their driver all the time. A few times we didn't get our change back after a meal, the staff obviously just presumed that the change (quite a bit) was for them to keep. The hassle received by the locals, shop keepers, taxi drivers, men standing on corners of street, men standing outside the entrance way to the alley for the Riad was very tiring and sometimes intimidating but, once the door of the riad was closed shut, you could relax. We booked a trip through Discover Ltd to Kasbah Toubkal which is in the Atlas Mountains, well worth the visit. We had a lovely stay.

Room Tip: Use the driver. visit the sun terrace on the roof
