“Beautiful and calm. We hope to return !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

Beautiful and comfortable House, Nicely designed and beautifully decorated, keeping the spirit of the original building. Rooms are relatively small but very comfortable, and once again you can feel the atmosphere of Morocco.
The staff is fantastic, thank you for the hospitality Badr - always available to give us tips and help.
This time we stayed for 4 nights, but we hope to return one day and make the Riad our base camp to go explore the southern Morocco!

Beautiful and spotlessly clean.
In an interesting friendly local area close to a gate but in an atmospheric part of the medina. We liked the area so much we have bought a riad just around the corner. Convenient for sights outside as well as in the medina.
The riad itself is minimally furnished to give a beautiful simple uncluttered vision. It is however very comfortable with modern amenities. Beautiful courtyard pool looks very inviting for use in the warmer weather.
Very helpful staff. Walked us to the square and always willing to help.
Splendid few days.

We spent a week here in December 2013 including Christmas Day, as a family group of eight which ranged from my elderly (but intrepid) parents to my very lively 11 year old son. The Riad is spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and comfortably furnished, minimalist but chic and stylish. The staff were extremely kind and helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them, the breakfasts on the roof in the morning sun were wonderful and the lunch which was provided for Christmas Day was fantastic. The Riad is about 20 mins walk from the centre of town but after doing it a couple of times, it's not hard to find your way and also it's nice to get away from the crowds and crazy driving! Only slight negative was that the weather was very very cold during our visit and there was nowhere warm and comfy indoors for us to relax together as a family - obviously this wouldn't be a problem in the hotter months of the year when I'm sure the cool courtyard would be a welcome retreat from the heat.

Had 3 nights in November, perfect weather, quiet Riad, 10 minutes walk to the souks, lovely staff, excellent cooking of both breakfasts and dinners. Nothing was too much. Would go back without hesitation!

Room Tip: All rooms are the same, not large but comfortable, double bed, wardrobe, ensuite bathroom, cool and...

We stepped from the narrow alleyway down into the old doorway set in a vast wall to arrive at the Riad , Porte Royale which is hidden oasis of peace. The rooms are plain and simple with very comfortable beds and lovely antique Moroccan doors and windows and tribal rugs .

Mohamed and his wife Hagiba welcomed us and continued to look after us so well our whole stay, organising taxis , restaurants , outings and serving us delicious breakfasts . Thank you also to Phillip the owner who went out if his way to help us enjoy such great days out , in the Atlas Mountains on mules , to a really unusual hotel with swimming pool for lunch plus all the taxi arrangments went like clockwork. We went to the souks on many occaisions , and found local people very helpful and welcoming .

The Marjorelle Gardens with the Berber Museum inside was superb and quite different from any garden I have visited. It was a great holiday for all six of us and many thanks !!

Last minute panic for final night accommodation arranged by e-mail; Philip and Mohamed could not have been more helpful. Delightful oasis of tranquility, the perfect end to a magical holiday, no crowds, noise nor hassle. Beautiful riad, very clean and comfortable, and an excellent night's sleep inspite of the 30'C temperature. Mohamed was invaluable with advice on where to shop, and the restaurant recommendation was superb. Very convenient access for the all too early flight, but not until we had been given a delicious breakfast. I can't fault it.
