This little riyad has five individually decorated rooms in a tasteful example of the hippie chic that Marrakesh designers are known for. Corinne, the manager and hostess is there every day and acted as our guide and pampered us throughout our stay. The ground floor has an inner courtyard with a tiny but deep pool for cooling off in summer months, and some rooms, the first floor has rooms overlooking the courtyard, and the top floor is a rooftop terrace where the breakfast of Moroccan flatbreads and pancakes, fig jam, cheese, eggs and other treats is served by the cook Fatma on sunny days. There is a hammam and massage room that accommodates one person at at time.
The location was excellent - the back door leads into the quiet Qasbah neighbourhood through which you can easily walk to the medina in about 15-20 minutes, while the front door leads onto a not too busy road easily accesible to taxis, unlike many of the riyads you will find. We found taxis essential to access the new town (Guéliz) where many of the best restaurants are located, but enjoyed staying in the much more picturesque old town.
We needed to unwind after some gruelling months at work and this was the perfect place
