Stayed in this Riad on our way back from a tour of Morocco(by hired car). The Riad is very beautiful and very peaceful in an easy to reach area near to Palais el Badhi. It is a very short walk from the main Square and no problems at all getting back to the Riad at night. It is a very peaceful and quiet area where you sleep so well.
We had booked one room which Said upgraded for us at the same price as he considered it too small for two people. Said also picked us up at the airport. He is a really friendly guy who speaks English and French so no problems. Catherine, the owner arrived on our last day. She is also a really friendly woman. The staff looked after us really well.
The Riad is kept very clean. The cockroaches in Marrakech are normal even in a five star hotel, but in this Riad, we didn't even see one.
Breakfast is served in the dining room and time after 8 in the morning. If you need to have breakfast earler as you have a flight or are leaving on a tour, no problem, you only have to tell them and they will organise everything for you.
Would reccomend this Riad to everyone as it is very quiet, good area of Marrakech. Wouldn't agree as suggested by another person here that the road to reach it is "Shady". It is one of the quietest and safest roads which I saw in the whole of Morocco.
Thanks again to Siad and the rest of the staff for a wonderful time.
