“Perfect place to stay in Marrakech”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

A wonderful Riad in the medina, a short (15 minute) walk to the Jamaa El Fna square. Although it is down a lane, it is relatively easy to navigate to and from (which is important!).

Great value - our room was spacious, with a private bathroom and terrace. A very peaceful place to escape the madness of the souks. Good breakfast.

Aziz, the owner, is very helpful and friendly - a wonderful host.

This Riad is an old house converted into a hostel-style hotel, with a great owner, Aziz, whom we found extremely helpful, courteous and willing to go the extra mile to accomodate us. He arranged a Hamman for us, a rental car for a day, and anything we needed he found in the market, including ginger tea for my cough!
Our room was clean, comfortable and quiet, however being right off the open courtyard, we were daily awakened very early by the call to prayer at a nearby mosque. Breakfast was included, and Aziz accomodated a gluten free diet. The room was straightened up every day by the time we got back from our wanderings. We were allowed to do laundry, which was line-dried, and which we found folded in our room on our return. Aziz also allowed us to use his computer when ours broke. Wifi was reliable.
The Riad is deep inside the old city souk, so we would walk through part of the souk every day to do our exploring. We stayed for 7 nights. I would recommed this Riad for anyone on a budget and looking for a real Marrakech experience.

Room Tip: Our room direclty off the courtyard required us to cross the courtyard, (which was also the breakfas...

Great Riad in the Medina, 15-minutes walking distance from Jamaa El Fna square. Aziz, the owner, is an awesome guy, very kind and helpful. He is also a great cook and he served us one of the best tajine we had in Marrakech. We stayed in the rooftop room, which has in-room bathroom and is very quiet. Absolutely a good choice for staying in Marrakech.
