This was our first trip to Marrakesh and we couldn't have chosen better. As soon as we confirmed our reservation we received a friendly email offering - without any pressure - to organise lunch to welcome us on our arrival and a private taxi to pick us up at the airport. We arrived to find our airconditioned taxi and very... More

Friendly and helpful staff with easy access to the Souk markets and main square. Quaint place to stay with original moroccan features with a lovely roof terrace and a surprisingly quiet atmosphere which is greatly appreciated after experiencing the crowds and liveliness of the town. Good value for money

When we decided stay in a Riad, we were looking for the real atmosphere of Morocco. I couldn't choose better. Especially, when you're welcome with a friendly smile and a cup of mint tea. From this moment we felt like part of the family. Helpful from the first to the last minute, Abdou was an angel in our stay in... More

A friend and I decided to visit Morocco for the first time with no expectations in mind- and we were blown away by this riad. Extremely friendly staff- instantly greeted by warm smiles and of course- mint tea and cookies:) Very clean hotel, 5 mins from the centre square, large rooms with traditional moroccan flare and a gorgeous rooftop terrace...

Very friendly and helpful staff. Watched a football match on TV with them and talked about the champions league semi finals :). Abdu carried my one of my bags with me to get a taxi after I checked out. There was always nice Moroccan tea offered when I was in the lounge. Clean and comfortable room. Close to the main... More

The riad is beautiful, the breakfasts were so fresh and delicious (especially the yoghurt), the staff are very welcoming and helpful, the location is great as well, walking distance to the square Jemaa El Fnaa. I would stay here again for sure.

Spent one week in this riad. My first riad experience. Very amicable staff, spotlessly clean, delicious breakfasts and nothing was too much trouble for anyone to sort out. Lovely rooftop terrace. Very central and close to most of the souks, D'jemaa al Fna square and shopping centre. Would highly recommend this riad.

Tranquil, yet minutes away from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. Perfect location in easy reach of the souks, food markets and the square. The staff provided an excellent service and made us feel very welcome without being over the top. Our flight home was cancelled due to strikes and they were extremely helpful in arranging alternative accommodation and let... More
