I stayed here with two friends for two nights and would definitely stay here again. The staff is extremely welcoming and you will feel as if you are the only guests there. Coming from the airport, you'll most likely be dropped off near the square, as taxis/cars are not permitted where the riad is located, but it is a short... More

We were booked at the hotel for 4 days using it's own website. The owner was very courteous and responded timely to emails. Unfortunately we were unable to travel to Morocco due to unforeseen circumstances on the day of departure. The owner was highly professional, understanding of our situation and provided excellent customer service. We will definitely stay there on... More

Stayed here with 2 friends for 4 nights. Definitely a positive experience of our Morocco trip and I'd book here again in a heartbeat! PROS: - Friendly staff. We were greeted with welcome mint tea and cookies. The front-desk clerk, Muhammed, gave us great advice for the rest of our trip. I cannot emphasize how important this was; Marrakesh is... More

This riad is in the best possible location, right around the corner from the main square in Marrakech. The staff were incredibly friendly and Mohamed helped us organise anything we needed. The hotel itself is very beautiful and has a cute little terrace where we sometimes had breakfast. Everything was really clean and we felt very relaxed here. We had... More

We stayed in three different riads and this one was the cheapest. The breakfast was not bad and the bed was comfortable. The owner was always around for help or any questions and was very friendly. The only negatives are were were on the ground floor and we did hear other guests during breakfast and during the day so not... More

If I can give a higher score than this, I would do it! Mohammed and the whole staff were so helpful and friendly. 1. A day before flying to Marrakech, Mohammed sent me an email with information about the riad and that he expects us. It was so nice and thoughtful! 2. When we arrived he welcomed us with mint...

This was our first and last visit to Marakech! The Riad was lovely, spotlessly clean and a safe haven from the madness of outside! Mohammad the Manager was excellent, very informative of the local area and safety tips. We arranged a taxi to take us to the hotel, only you get dropped off at the square and one of the... More

Stayed here for a long weekend in Jan. We had a suite on the 2nd floor, nice size and a very firm bed which I liked. Breakfast was buffet style, omelet, toast, yogurts, fresh fruit, cold meats and the nicest fresh orange juice I've ever tasted. We ate at the riad on the first night, we didn't get what we... More

This is a typical Riad in the middle of the old city about 5 minutes walk from the main square. The decor is great and the staff friendly and helpful. We arrived in the early evening after the main square had been closed to traffic so they arranged a hand cart as part of the airport transfer. Following the hand... More
