“Almost pleasure on a stick!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

After reading the reviews I was quite confident about staying at casa Lalla. We had arranged for an Airport transfer which was waiting for us at arival. We were picked up by a normal taxi car and dropped off around a 4-5 minute walk from the riad, (the streets are too small for any car to drive through). Our luggage was taken to the riad by a local in what looks like a modified wheelbarrow, completely safe i must add.
The room was lovely, tastefully decorated as was the whole riad, we had the suit. The riad is very cosy, the sound does resonate as in any enclosed space. there is a small pool with a powerfull jacuzzi in the courtyard but the water is not heated, its around 21 degress which seems cold at first but your body soons adapts.
Breakfast is served on the terrace, the selection could be better and a variety would also be welcome, we had fresh orange juice, some bread, pancake, and a spread, Personally I think eggs would have been a good addition. Im just nit picking, it was sufficient i must add.
The staff are great, always nearby, always helpfull. We met the owner Pier who was very pleasant.
Thers no TV in the room or a kettle, we didnt really miss the TV, there is free wifi in the courtyard areas, connection did drop on the terrace at times.
Its about a comfortable five minute walk to jema el fnaa square through a couple of narrow streets which can be a little daunting at first but thats the whole charm of marrakech, besides youl be hard pressed to find a riad thats not connected by these little streets, the locals who live near the riad are wonderful and youl feel completely safe.
The square itself is mental to be fair and the riad was a refreshing retreat from the hustle and bustle.
We did not dine at the restaurant, the riad is mood lit in the evenings which gives it a great ambiance.
I woudnt say it was a family riad, saying that I stayed with my wife and 6 month old child, so believe me when I say sound does resonate! Still, I would go back for sure, highly recommended.

The riad is damp with mould growing on the walls. The rooms are tiny, the bathroom is painted dark brown and is unpleasant. No TV, wifi did not work. Pretentious French owner appeared briefly to provide uncorrect information. His staff was trying to do a good job. No choice for dinner. Small portions, terribly overstated and overpriced, cheap house wine at a high price. It is incomprehensible how this could possibly advertise as Best Moroccon restaurant. We had much better tastier food in many other places on our trip. We paid cash in dirham and were hit with a surcharge of 4%, unheard of before. Certainly not to be recommended.

From check in to check out the staff was great and facilities were spotless. From the helpful tipsfor things to do and not do in Marrakech to the cleanliness, there's obvious pride from the owners and staff. All for a good value close to everything.

The beautifully restored riad was a welcome retreat. Moroccan mint tea and cookies served in front of a cosy fire in the late afternoon, followed by superb dining. The hosts and staff were most welcoming and helpful. Absolutely charming.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms would be the quietest.

I recently stayed for a long WE in this beautiful riyad in the heart of the Medina. It was my first stay in Marrakech. The recently traditionally renovated Ryad is owned and managed by a French couple. Annabel, the host of the house has captured the essence of the entrancing and mysterious city of Marrakech. The Riyad has 8 rooms in total, each decorated differently. The Ryad has a restaurant, whose chef prepared delicous Marrocan style meals. The quiet Ryiad is located in a nutshell to the busy main place Djemaa-el-fna. She can make for you different suggestions of what to see, where to go for shopping, where to go for dinner and arrange the taxi for you. After a busy day, the Ryiad offers hammam with massage to book in advance.

We started our holiday in Morocco in this wonderful decorated Riad.The owner are the most friendly people we have ever met,kind and helpful they only care about making your holiday unforgettable!We had a tour in the south of Morocco and came back for 4 days so we had the opportunity to try 3 of their wonderful rooms.We loved all of them!We even took a cooking class with talented Mohammed who is the sous chef in the hotel restaurant and the 4 hours spent with him were exciting especially for me being a chef too.The food Pierre cooked for us one night was light ,inventive and tasty.I had a superb massage from Mina a nice Moroccan girl who did a wonderful scrub to me too.How great was to have breakfast on the terrace among trees ,relaxing on the chaise long or the hammock...just a dream!!For my husband and I who have before and after travelled around Morocco this is the paradise of Riads!!!The only problem is to find a better one.....so all the others will disappoint you!

Room Tip: All the rooms are wonderful but on the top floor are superb!
