“Not 5* but good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Its down a rather dark insulubrious alley in the Spice market, so not for the nervous, but inside full of very friendly staff- most odf whom speak only French, but some Spanish or English (Redouane)
Very centrally placed, and near taxis etc
As in other reviews, the rooms are nice but not v luxurious, plenty of hot water in the morning, but maybe less so later - and no overheard showers
Radouane seems to manage it and is extremely helpful, providing breakfast, pastries, wine etc on request
Only grip was that in February it was very cold inside, and took several heavy hints before they lit a patio heater (which ran out of gas). We ate several meals wearing all out clothes, and certainly wasnt comfy to sit around reading (without a blanket)
The 2 dinners we had were OK, would have preferred more spicy flavours (which seemed to surprise them)
Bedrooms also cold so were glad of the extra duvet, but difficult to dry towels over night
And the pool is definitely ornamental - would have felt v self conscious jumoing in it

Room Tip: the junior suites are nice, room with 4 poster was a little smelly (drains), Red room was lovely but...

A lovely Riad within the spice market south of the Jemaa al Fna. Not the easiest to find initially but the welcome was very warm and we were given good instructions on how to reach all the local sites (easy enough once you have your bearings). One of the staff, Redouane, was especially helpful and his joie de vivre is very infectious. The French owner of the Riad was there at the same time and was equally welcoming. The Riad itself has a lovely courtyard with a plunge pool, and a nice terrace. The other reviews aren't wrong when they call this an oasis within the buzz of Marrakech. I would definitely stay here again!

wonderful little riad, an oasis in the middle of the suk. And the stuff is so nice and helpful, they do everything to make you feel at home and are very helpful if you want to book dinner, a daytrip, a weekly trip, a car or whatever you need! Its not a fancy chic 5star place, but a very lovable, beautiful one, like at home.

Room Tip: Room in the first floor.

Stayed in this quite and beautiful riad in October with a friend. The riad is situated in a narrow alleyway within the spice market. Although a busy area but the people are very friendly & welcoming & we felt very safe even coming back at the end of every night. The area is great if you need to get back and from the middle of town and near the tourist sites. The rooms are stunning, clean, the beds comfy and beautifully furnished. Redoune the manager & his team catered to our every need, serving our meals in the terrace, catering to our requests & doing it all with a big smile. We asked Redoune too many questions about the town and he was more than happy to give us all his recommendations.
The hotel is good value for money and a nice place to come back to at the end of an exhausting day navigating the madness of Marrakesh souks, we would be more than happy to come back again.

The Riad was a fabulous sanctuary within the chaos of the Spice market. The rooms were well furnished and the beds comfy. (Though I did miss tea making facilities)
There was free WiFi and the use of a PC. The plunge pool was thoroughly refreshing after sunbathing on the terrace or after a trip around the souks.
The staff were friendly and the host, Redouane, was on hand whenever you needed him. He also arranged excursions (we did a 1 night trip to a Berber Village on the edge of the Sahara) and massages and can advise on many things.
The food, that was bought fresh everyday, was considerably better than most of the places that we ate in the market or restaurants and was remarkably good value. You could eat either in the middle of the Riad, the terrace or have breakfast brought to your room.
It was remarkably well placed to visit all of the sights in both the old town and the new and there were a number of nice places to eat within 2 mins to suit all budgets and tastes.
We spent 10 days in the hotel, more than most and we loved every moment of our stay, even when it rained!

Room Tip: The rooms at the front of the hotel have more natural light but could be a little noisier as they ov...

The Riad is in the old town and easy to reach. The house is warmly furnished and has its own charme. Beside the hussle of the town, you find silence and relaxing time in the Riad. The service is more than helpfull and you fell very private. The view from the top is wonderful. It is a place for individueals that like an experience.

Room Tip: We had the suite, beadroom, separate room, terrace. Lovely
