“Fantastic family rooms & service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Great Riad for family accommodation, one double bed and 2 singles perfect for travelling with 2 kids. Bathroom was small but worked fine, beds really comfy and loads of stations on the TV so the kids were happy! Easy to get to from the Jemaa el Fna square and if your travelling by car, the car park is near by and costs £8 per day more or less! The Riad is beautifully decorated, the breakfast is really great and you can even take it upstairs and have it on the beautiful roof terrace. The staff are friendly and helpful and i could also recommend the "Fantasia" show which, for a night out, is fun. I would definitely recommend this hotel especially if you are travelling with children, can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: We stayed in a quad room, 2 singles in 1 room, then the bathroom and another room with a double bed...

Having no expectations and having not been to Marrakech before, I was overwhelmed by the gracious, welcoming and genuine hospitality of this Riad. It's a very peaceful, highly maintained and quiet location in the middle of the Medina, not far from Place Djemaa el Fna. You easily get to know the area quickly and feel very safe and comfortable walking around at any time. If this Riad exemplifies Marrakech, I am going back.

I stayed here with my girlfriend for 4 nights and we loved it! All the staff were very friendly and helpful and the room was lovely! Neither of us had a problem with the wifi, and the included breakfast was always a treat!
My only issue was that the water in the showers wasn't always hot and that was a bit of a let down.

However, I would definitely recommend this Riad to anyone going to Marrakech, but make sure you get picked up at the airport or you'll never find the place!

We arranged for a transfer from the station otherwise I'm not sure if we would have found it. But the location is really perfect, barely five minutes from Djemma el fna. Stepping inside the riad was like stepping in our private oasis. Exquisite decor and just deep enough inside the alleys that you do not hear the hustle and bustle outside. This riad has two buildings though and our room was in the secondary building just next door. The rooms were lovely, a bit smaller than some of the other riads we stayed at in Morocco, but still cozy and comfortable nonetheless. Bathrobes, hair dryer and toiletries are provided. Buffet breakfast was alright, couldn't get enough of the orange juice and eggs with cumin and salt! The only negative was that my iphone couldn't connect to the wifi whereas my traveling partner using a Samsung phone could!

Wow! Wonderful Riad tucked away at the back of some of the most run down grotty side streets! staff were welcoming and could not do enough for you, rooms were exceptional despite the 5 am wake up daily with the call to pray! Our shower head was broken for most of the stay, meaning you had to hold it one hand and shower with the other, it was reported on day one but never fixed, also, the hot water ran out a few times. Apart from that, it was a pleasure to be here, luxury and comfort right by the Miriad of Marrakech's cultural lifestyle.

Room Tip: Book a junior suite which is at the top and quieter, two rooms with a double and two singles, lovely...

Second visit to Marrakech, this Riad is amazing, rooms with air con, TV, mini bar which I think is free, but we did not need to use it. On arrival, excellent no stress check in with welcoming tea, full info given, rooms were amazing, beautifully decorated with own hair dryer, bath robes, sower gel, shampoo, lovely towels,, I highlight these simply as we did not get them in other Riads previously.
Amazing breakfast, lunch and dinners optional but we ate out. Pretty spa, hamman, very reasonable but we did not use it. Beautiful roof terraces, and free wifi. The staff are so warm friendly and helpful, Room service was perfect with such attention to detail every single day. We will certainly return, for me it is where I want to stay when I visit Marrakech. SHUKRAN or Al'Ikthar-Chirik

Room Tip: I can only suggest that travelers take slippers or buy some near by. We had 2 rooms, same floor next...

Staying at this hotel was a great way to kick-start our romantic holiday in Morocco. Rooms were simply beautiful, excellent communal outside terrace spaces, excellent, welcoming staff. The breakfast complete with olives, pancakes and lemon drizzle cake was a dream.

The hotel, although down a small street, is handily close to the main square. If you are booking a airport transfer to the hotel, be aware that the last 5 mins of the journey will be on foot as the hotel can't be reached from the road. Once you are inside the building, it is magic.

Room Tip: Our ground floor suite opened up onto the central courtyard and reception area. Next time I would tr...
