“Lovely place, hospitable hosts, definitely recommend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2011

Stayed 4 nights during October to celebrate a birthday. We had 2 rooms at the riad in the second of 2 joined buildings. Both rooms were nicely decorated, good bathrooms and had a little outdoor seating area outside our rooms.

Upstairs there is a great roof terrace where a great and varied breakfast is served. We also enjoyed a great dinner there one night.

All the staff and hosts were very friendly, helpful and hospitable. They were great at answering all our questions, suggesting places to go/things to do/restaurants/organising airport pick up and drop off etc.

The Riad is located in the Bab Doukkala area, NW of the big square within the medina, but it is an easy and interesting walk to the souqs, square etc. and we much preferred to be in a quiet more residential area. The nearby food souq felt much more authentic than the tourist souqs and was an interesting morning stroll, but mind the motorbikes!
You can also walk to the new city and the Jardin Majorelle as well.

We really enjoyed our stay there and would recommend the riad and happily return too.

Set in the back street tranquility yet less then a minute walk from the true hustle and bustle of Morrocan city culture. We were waited on superbly by Robert and his staff (you must go)

Whole interior was very pretty, especially we really liked the room we stayed. Meal was great, staff were friendly, especially the owner of the hotel (Bobby) was so helpful. The location was not so easy to reach from Big Square, but still worth staying the hotel. I really fell in love with Marrakech and I would stay there again if I get another chance to visit the city!

This Riad is leading by a very nice Owner Mr.Roberts and his assistant Fatima. I had every time the feeling I stay at home. The breakfast is good and sufficient what you can have on the sun terrace. The Riad provides WIFI on the ground floor.
From the Riad is it not far to all Hot Spots round the Medina. You can walk all in 15 to 20 minutes. The Souks are very interested it is every day a challenge. So far so good, try it by yourself. You can visit a farm with pets and farmer animals nice for kids. Ask the owner Mr.Roberts

I went with a friend, and we stayed 6 days & nights. We luxuriated in the lovely surroundings and warm and friendly reception. Robert and his staff were very welcoming, and service was excellent.

This is a wonderful riad tucked away behind a heavy wood door. You step in off a back street into a tranquil haven away from the madness of the old town. Robert the host was extremely friendly and helpful and even appeared at breakfast to have coffee with us even although we had an extremely early start. The food was delicious and the rooms were great.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2010

A simple place, clean and tidy. Location is good for visiting all parts of the Medina, although the entrance off a side ally past what can only be described as a bomb site and rubbish-strewn walkway is a bit intimidating - particularly at night with the usual crowd of Morrocan teenagers eager to make some money from the passing tourists. Having said that, this describes half of the Medina too, so you get used to it pretty quickly. It's a real relief to come inside and relax from the chaos outside in the Medina. Staff are helpful and friendly, and whilst Robert seems to get a lot of mentions in the reviews, Fatima and the kitchen staff really also deserve a mention. Fatima was very helpful at all times, and the food served at a time to suit us was really of the highest standard. Far better than most of the restaurants in the area.
