“Gem in the heart of the medina”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

This little Riad is, like many Riads, well hidden in the Medina. It's only a 10-minute walk to the Jemaa el Fna and close to a busstop/taxiparking.
After arriving we were welcomed with some delicious tea and Maroccan cookies to make us feel right at home. Then, after a short introduction, we were shown our room, which was a very nice 2-bed bedroom. Not luxurious, but we didn't expect that for the prices they charge.
It's really in the center of all the hustling and bustling in the Medina, but the Riad itself is very quiet and relaxed (perfect place for an afternoon siesta). Since we were there when it was extremely hot, we were very happy with the airconditioning in our room.
Breakfast each morning was fresh and very tasty (good variation in the dishes), so a perfect start for exploring this magnificent city.
If you really want to experience Marrakesh, don't stay in a hotel outside the Medina, but choose a Riad. And this one is a very good choice for a reasonable price.

Room Tip: Ask for a transfer from the airport by the Riad itself (by e-mail, or so). The riad is otherwise h...

Loved everything about this small Riad. Chantal, the owner could not do enough for us. Rooms lovely, breakfast super. Lovely roof top area to relax after shopping in the local souk.

Riad is situated with easy access (couple of minutes) to souks and markets and with short walk to Marrakech centre and the Square. The breakfasts are excellent and the owner (Chantal) is exceptionally friendly and extremely helpful, doing all that she could to help whenever possible, including sorting out taxis and ensuring our expedition into the Shara went smoothly. We spent New Year's Eve in the Riad and Chantal and her staff cooked a very special meal and ensured a memorable evening! Very highly reccomended and many thanks to Chantal!!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2009

This riad was well situated for the medina. A little ramp from bedroom to shower room/toilet,wheel in shower but no grab bars at toilet or shower ,access to lowered sink with wheelchair also one sink at standard height,side transfer possible from right to left[with wheelchair facing same way as toilet}no grab bar.

owner and staff friendly and helpfull[would help if you can speak a little french]

warning! if you cannot find your riad at night the teenage boys will come out from hiding and show you the way home then demand 5 euros !

We should have chased them away but we were nervous in the dark alley ways!
also when arriving at the riad a young morrocan guy helped us to the riad ,we gave him 20 dirhams he demanded 50 so ended up giving him 40.

marrakech in my opinion is quite an easy city to visit in a wheelchair all flat with some dropped kerbs but a nightmare to cross streets at rush hour!
marjorelle gardens mostly accessible with a few steps here and there,a toilet with wider door in ladies but didnt appear to have grab bar.

museum of marrakech mainly accessible.
