Beautiful Riad. Only a 2 min walk from the main Jmaa El Fna square yet is was a peaceful haven from the hustle and bustle. We booked the Dana room which was compact but perfectly fine for a few nights for a couple. The staff were amazing and made our stay. They were very friendly and helpful, especially Azedine, from...

One truly has to heap praise on this riad (and staying in a riad in Morocco is generally the best way to get the spirit of the country).Situated in the medina, it has only several rooms, each of them beautifully furnished with lots of great artefacts, ranging from lovely mirrors to items in the bathroom. There is a small swimming... More

The riad is excellent, the hosts are super nice and they help you in anything you may need. It is near all the important turistic places such as palais bahia, zouk etc. The breakfast is great and really big and although it is in the city center it is calm and quite. The service is great, very clean and with... More

He gave us so much information on Marrakech, tours in the area, price to pay for taxis in Casablanca and what to do in Rabat. Thank you Mohannad for all your... More

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.

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.

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
