the staff is very friendly and helpful, nice place, the rooms are nice too. a cool and tranquil place in the middle of the old medina. only a few meters walk to everywhere, taxi rank, the main old medina, restaurants, markets, the main square. the top floor chilling area is a very good place to relax and ponder.

My daughter and I stayed for six nights at this beautiful riad as part of our holiday to Morocco. All the staff here especially Ahmed were so kind and helpful that we were sorry to be leaving for Essaouria our next stop. We had the Blue room which was lovely. The beds were very comfortable and the room was very...

My wife and I spent 4 days and three nights here. We loved the people, the service was outstanding, and the food a delight. The owner was very helpful with all the arrangements prior to our arrival. Definitely recommend paying the extra few Euros to be picked up at the airport, very professional and made sure we got here. The...

We had an email offering to collect us from the airport, for a small cost, which we accepted. This ran smoothly and with no problem. On arrival we were given a traditional mint tea with small biscuits; we were given a lot of great advice about Marrakech and were taken to a local restaurant as it was late; it was...

Le Coq Berbere is a delightful riad in which to stay while in Marrakech. The friendly staff were helpful and attentive to our requests. They surprised us with a birthday celebration one evening on our return from Essouria. My wife was delighted and pleased to have new friends so far from home. A great place to relax in between visits...

We met up with friends from London here and all enjoyed our experience with this riad. The manager, Bachir, deserves special thanks for doing everything in his power to track down my suitcase, apparently stuck in Abu Dhabi, then Casablanca. It took two days to retrieve but could have been longer without his help. Our room (upstairs) was comfortable and...

Le Coq was an excellent place to relax after a weary trawl around very polluted Marrakech each day. A real 'oasis' in a place of mayhem. The accommodation was more than adequate but the real bonus was the reception staff, especially Bashir, who helped in so many ways, especially when our friends had one piece of luggage which hadn't arrived...

Our first trip to Morocco and we would definitely recommend visiting this gorgeous country. We absolutely loved the raid. Triple room was perfect for us and very spacious and clean. All of the staff - special mention to Mohammed and Abdul (and anyone else we came into contact with) were so welcoming, helpful and friendly. They really went above and...

We stayed in this lovely Riad for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location is perfect for access to the souks and main square in the medina. On arrival at night, walking down the dark alley can be daunting but once inside the riad is very tranquil and peaceful. The roof top terrace in particular is very relaxing...

'WOW' this riad is beautiful and an oasis of calm. I normally do not write reviews but I need to express how this riad went above and beyond my expectations. Before we even arrived in Marrakech I found the initial communications with Elisabetta and Bashir seamless. They organised for us to have a airport transfer on arrival (highly recommended as...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
At the beginning there were two friends, Barbara and Elizabeth, and the charm of the Red Town. In an afternoon, walking in a quiet part of the Medina, called Riad Laarouss, close to Ben Youssef Mosque, they saw an old woman with a tattoo on her chin, standing in the street door. The woman was making great gestures to invite them into her house, which seemed very poor. In a corner of the courtyard, there were gathered together a lot of furniture and fittings, as waiting for moving. In fact the old woman said to the girls that the house has become too small for her family and she would like they be the new owners. According to the traditional Moroccan hospitality, the old woman offered them mint tea and cakes. She also introduced to them the last born in the family, Idris, a few-months baby, and Mustafà, a gentle and wise man who was living like a Hermit in his ... more   less
