“Perfect place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2011

Recently stayed in this riad with a group of 6 other friends. We booked out the entire annex and one room in the main riad. We loved the riad - particularly the annex with its own terrace which we used for a bit of sunbathing - perfect!!
The staff were really helpful, helped us organise a day trip out of the city and generally were lovely. One of our friends was sick with food poisoning on the last day, and even though we were supposed to check out at 11.30am they let her stay on until we left for the airport.
The breakfast was jam and breads, and we also had a nice dinner one night with great salads and tajine :)
The only thing to note is that the rooms in the annex have no doors onto the ensuites! And the pool in the main riad is not the sort you would want to swim in! However the rooms were all lovely - esp the room in the main riad
Would really recommend it - good value for money!

A group of 6 forty something girls stayed in the Annex for a long weekend in March. None of us had been to Marrakech before and we were really made to feel welcome by Massod and all the staff. There were 6 of us so the Annex was perfect and it was like having our own little house, with our own roof terrace and breakfast was served here every morning. Massod arranged a lot of our trips/restaurants and gave us some really good advice for exploring. We couldn't have had a better time, we only wish we could have stayed longer and we would highly recommend the Annex to anyone. Only slight drawback was the stairs especially if you get the bedroom on the ground floor to the 3rd floor roof terrace but they certainly keep you fit! It was a great place to come back to after all the haggling we did in the Souks, the main square couldn't be nearer but the Annex was a little oasis after the hussle and bustle. Couldn't recommend our trip highly enough and we would all love to return.

Room Tip: Book the Annex if 6 staying

We stayed in the riad for 5 nights. It's perfectly situated near the square and in the soukhs. Nice rooms (some not for long people.... mind your head!). Due to the wheather there is always a place to stay at one of the terraces. We had diner in rainy wheather so we couldn't sit on the terrace, but we could eat by the neighbours. The diner was very good. Breakfast is bread, pancakes, juice, coffee, (moroccan) tea and jam. We bought some cheese and eggs in the soukhs. The cook baked them for me, no problem. Thanks to Massoud and Mohammed, who made our stay really nice. We went to the nearest (traditional) hammam. It's an experience... We enjoyed our time in the riad, it's a very nice place, and when we are in Marrakech again we will come back.

Stayed here for 2 nights, in a room on the first floor. Really close to Jemma El Fnna (less than a 5 min walk). As with every other Riad in Marrakesh, not v easy to find so I wish the staff would set up a meeting point after arrival in the city. However, we were able to call them and they met us and showed us the way.
Breakfast is ok- standard breads, OJ, and jams.
Room was clean
Bathroom was clean, but seemed almost unfinished- perfectly adequate for a couple days
Overall, an awesome value for 45euros/night

Hi

What made the whole experience while staying in Marrakesh, was the friendly and very attentive staff especially Aziz, nothing was every any bother or hassle. The beds were quite small but the views over the terrace and the quant decor made it a very pleasurable stay

Our biggest issue here was that our plans altered a bit and I contacted the raid 4 days ahead to change our reservation from 4 to 3 nights. The French owner insisted on charging for the full 4 nights. He claims the policy is on his website, but I cannot find that. No negotiation at all. This issue put me in a pretty grumpy mood-not so fun on vacation. Riad was otherwise charming and assitants Aziz and Massoud were great. Decor more French Moroccan (French owner) than Moroccan Moroccan.
