If you can find it at the end of the little alleyways, (you will need help the first time but easy after that), it is definitely worth staying here. You wouldn't know you are in the city- it's an incredibly peaceful little oasis although it is only a few minutes walk and you are in the souks. The staff were...

This Riad is highly recommended to travellers who want to experience the authentic and magical Marrakech's Medina. It's centrally located not too far from the main attractions but at the same time peaceful and a tranquil oasis in what is a very chaotic city! Thank you to Patrice, Abdul, Hatim and the rest of the team for being so helpful...

We recently stayed 4 nights in this Riad. As others have written, it is a good idea to arrange to be met just around the corner by the staff, who will help with bags, as the Riad is hidden in a maze of alleys, which is very much a part of its charm. We stayed in the grand suite in...

Excellent friendly service throughout our 4 night stay. We arrived at night and as it was our first visit to Marrakech we were nervous about what to expect and being able to find our way in the dark. However there was no need to worry as Patrice had organised us an airport pick up that drove us close to the...

In a city that gives you sensory overload, this Riad offers a peaceful escape. Patrice and his staff do a wonderful job of pampering their guests and making sure their vacation is something to remember. The breakfasts were excellent, with most of the offerings made right on the premises by the great cook. Fresh orange juice, pastries, homemade yogurt, fresh...

Comfortable, quiet bedroom, excellent discreet service, food very nice (we had breakfast only.) However the recommended local restaurants were fantastic cuisine. If you want to experience the old & new Marrakesh this location is perfect. Take the tour bus, visit the Jardin Marjorelle or lunch at Hotel La Mamounia. Best of all the locals were a right friendly bunch.

We stayed at this riad for three days as it was our first visit to Marrakech we wanted to stay right in centre of old town close to all attractions and also wanted a traditional hotel.

What a great hotel. The staff are excellent and very helpful as soon as we arrived someone was there to help us with our luggage, on arrival we had tea in the courtyard and given a map and a briefing about the area, followed by a tour of the hotel. Breakfast was perfect, well presented and always served with a...

We stayed in the new annexe of the riad for 4 nights and were well looked after by Ibrahim. The Riad is a cool peaceful oasis in the centre of the busy medina. The place was very clean and all the staff were very friendly. We booked a day trip to the Atlas mountains on the advice of Patrice and...

Having visited Marrakesh before, we wanted to stay in more traditional accomodation and not a big hotel like we did last time. This riad is beautiful tucked away from the busy city. We would recommend asking the Riad to arrange airport transfer as it can be tricky to find if its your first time. Patrice and his team were very...
