Beautiful riad and fantastic staff. Partice - very charming and friendly manager answered all our queries even before we arrived. Abdul is very helpful and a real asset to the riad. We were greeted with a lovely dinner. Breakfast is amazing and what makes it even better is to have it at the roof top terrace. Our suite was very... More

It was our first trip to Morocco and, admittedly, it was a bit of a culture shock but we were up for the challenge! This riad is a very welcoming oasis in the midst of a busy city. We stayed in a room on the second floor (referred to as the "first floor" in that part of the world). The... More

We stayed at the riad April 15-18th so I am a bit late writing a review but I just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our stay. The riad is a perfect location. Close to everything but away from the hustle and bustle and still in a very local area. Patrice and Abdul are lovely. Email in advance and... More

It's hard to decide what I loved the most about this Riad. The manager, Patrice was wonderful! Even before we arrived, he responded to all of our questions via email and when we arrived he recommended delicious restaurants, a great place for a hammam, booked our hot air balloon ride and our cooking class. Miriam, Abdul, Omar and the rest... More

Had the most amazing stay in Patrice's Riad, only a 10 minute walk from the main square and walking distance from most other attractions. The room was amazing - would definitely recommend a suite, and breakfast was exquisite and served on the roof terrace. I would definitely recommend a stay at this Riad.

Marrakech is an assault on the senses; smells, sights, sounds and tastes of weird and wonderful experiences We were 2 friends visiting to trek in the mountains and experience the hullabaloo of the city square Our visit to the riad was the calmer side of city life; a welcome mint tea and explanation of the city and map was a...

This Riad exceeded my expectations. The room was lovely and the ambiance of the place was great. The location was brilliant and walking distance to the old souk. The team there were especially attentive with special mention to Patrice and Abdul. We will definitely be coming back on our next visit.

My room was very noisy. Every time someone used a water source there was a loud humming sound. The noise echo from the design was bad. Even when trying to take an early afternoon rest the maids would be talking loudly between rooms. It was the worst sleep I've had. They do overcharge for transportation services and were unreliable -... More

A very comfortable and chilled place to stay in Marrakech, this riad is within the medina, but is beyond the noise and bustle of the souks. The room we booked was spacious, clean, and well-appointed - it's worth paying a bit extra for the larger rooms, but I guess the smaller ones would be perfectly adequate for most guests. The...
