“Lovely friendly riad”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013 via mobile

Don't be put off by the random side alley and the entrance- this riad is super friendly and in a good location. The 2 owners couldn't do enough to make sure we had a lovely stay. Bathrooms are really big and clean. Air con and heating provided. A great place to stay.

We arrived at the Riad well past midnight from the train station, and the hostel owner met us on a main square and walked us to the hostel. Courtyard and lobby area are absolutely beautiful. We instantly wished we could stay longer. The bathroom blew us away-- double sink, tub, roomy shower-- we agreed it was nicer than most American single family homes. Bedroom was spacious as well, though plug points are limited. In the morning, hostel owner woke up extra early to arrange a special breakfast before our tour was scheduled to leave and personally spoke to our guide to give him directions to the hostel. Fantastic experience overall

One of the best riads we've ever stayed at. It's a very welcoming place and both the staff pitchou and samir are amazingly friendly and always ready to help and giving tips or directions.Highly recommend this place.

The rooms were nice although the one member of staff we spoke with was friendly but not very helpful we arrived to stay one night as we had a flight to catch next day we were told we would not get breakfast as no one there to make it. The next morning I asked for a drink of water to be told there was none & no offer of help with our luggage glad we only had one night if it had been for longer we would have gone elsewhere.

I was part of a small group who had been travelling round morocco for 2 weeks and Marrakech was our final stop, our guide had booked us in this riad through an agent at the last minute. From the moment we arrived there was a problem with the booking as we had booked single rooms (and they were insisted we all squeezed in and shared) on top of that our reservation had been paid for prior to our arrival and the guy in charge was insistent that nothing had been paid! Once we were finally shown to our room (which was decorated quite nicely) we came back downstairs to move our luggage and a snake appeared from the tree in the courtyard !! Other riads I have stayed at in Marrakech have either been ran by a family or a couple - the guy who ran this riad la caleche really could give a hoot and we experienced the door & phone ringing through out the night were guests had been locked out (while he slept in the patio double glazed courtyard!) Even a simple task like ordering a cab in the morning was painful to get to the airport, were we nearly missed our flight (as again the cab cost had been covered with guide) but mysteriously they didn't know anything about that and we had to cover the cost ourselves and wake him up while he was sleeping. All in all I've no idea why anyone would want to stay here, it may look nice but there's a lot to be said for honesty & being made to feel welcome (which didn't apply to this riad) it left a real bitter taste on what had been up till then a really enjoyable holiday
