“Quiet and peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

Stayed here for three nights in July 2013 during Ramadan. Picked up by taxi arranged by Olivier from the riad. We would never have found it by ourselves. Tucked away in a small alley close to the markets. Room was authentic Morrocan and was excellent, It was situated on the ground floor - Hibiscus. The breakfasts were served on the roof terrace and were delicious. Used the small pool/jacuzzi regularly to cool down and chill out under the beautiful banana trees. Olivier arranged the taxi for a day out to the Atlas mountains. He was extremely attentive and always available to answer any questions we had. No hesitation in recommending this beautiful riad.

Room Tip: Hibiscus was on the ground floor facing the courtyard and only a few steps from the small pool/jacuz...

A charming riad in the medina, a very easy ten minute walk to Djemaa el Fna. The rooms, which are set around a beautiful courtyard., are comfortable and immaculate. The breakfast is very good. Everyone was very helpful and very pleasant. Definitely would recommend this riad.

Room Tip: All rooms face the courtyard, and all are excellent.

We stayed 4 nights in March2013 and really enjoyed our stay. The staff were ever so helpful, nothing was too much of problem. They prepared ealy breakfasts for us on a couple of days as we had to set off early for our trip to the mountains and then to the coast. We were also greeted with sweets and mint tea on our arrival which was a nice touch. We stayed in one of the smaller rooms as we were planning to spend most of the time out and about.The room was clean and comfortable with nice tiled bathroom. Bed was very comfy and we had good night sleeps. We had breakfast on the terrace and liked to chill out there after our trips in the afternoons.The riad is located very close to souks and the main square. Overall, very happy with the stay and would recommed to others.

What an excellent place, arrived at 23.30 and was greeted at the door by a most pleasant lady who showed us to a most delightful and authentic Moroccan room. Then we were offered a drink
and relaxed by the petit pool/Jacuzzi under the giant leaves of the banana tree ahhh!!
In the morning we found that we were so close to the square and all the must see sites, perfect!
Hot water flowed in the shower +, could do with a fixing point for the shower head.
When we left there was no pain in the bill...
Stay you will not be disappointed.

A very well placed and very comfortable Riad in Marrakech in easy walking distance of all the main sites (especially through the Souks to the main square). The staff were excellent and helpful and the facilities very comfortable. A very good value for the quality offered. Highly recommended.

We stayed there in July for a few days. We had a beautiful room, we couldn't ask for a better price quality ratio. It was our first time in Marrakesh and the hosts were really helpful in helping us to get around. We enjoyed the rooftop where you can sit and lounge. We also had an excellent dinner at the Riad. It is also well situated, about 5-7 minutes walk to place Jemaa el-Fnaa.
Only low point was the air conditionning that couldn't compensate for the July heat (we went during a very hot week)
