I always feel like a sultan when I arrive at this beautiful riad. Comfortable room, delicious food, quiet location, and wonderful staff. Small critique: last visit the fruit in my room was refreshed each day. This time it never was. A little disappointing as the oranges are delicious and the bananas were perfectly ripe. I'm sure I could have asked for more, but why not just refresh? Also, there were no facial tissues in the room. Again, I could have asked, but this place is so well run I would have thought they would have it covered. The highlight of our stay was our meal on the roof one evening while enjoying the sunset. The food was absolutely delicious but what was even more impressive was the truly 5-star service from the young man who climbed up and down stairs to bring us food and more wine and did it expertly and with a smile. Also - I love a good coffee service in the mornings and I loved the quick, tasty brew each morning in the room. I hope I get the opportunity to stay here again. I know the route to the square now!

My wife and I stayed here one night. Would have stayed longer, but no availability. Great location just inside Bab Doukkala, short walk to the heart of the Medina and the Jama El f'na square. Rooms are clean, quiet, and comfortable. We had an excellent dinner at their restaurant the night we stayed. The staff was helpful, and friendly, and always greeted us with a smile. Try to visit their museum across the street from the riad. Well worth it. Also, the driver who drove us from the airport to the riad, Ali, was fabulous. We enjoyed riding with him so much that we had him drive us to Essaouira and back to Marrakech. Safe driver, clean car, great tips about Morocco. Highly recommend this riad, and Ali.

The experience was unbeatable. The location is just inside the walls of the medina so an excellent location for exploring inside the medina and walking out to the modern city. The riad itself was amazing. A former home, it retains the authentic old Moroccan layout, charm and beauty. Our room was very large with a modern bathroom and an A/C, heating unit. They also have an indoor pool and roof top decks for relaxing with drinks.The staff was very warm and the service couldn't have been better. Everyone was anxious to please including the owner Mohammad, who was always present, making sure we were happy.

Highly recommend a stay at this Riad for an authentic experience of Marrakech. The service is second to none and it's beautifully decorated and clean. The location is great for getting to the main attractions - just take into account that you will be right in the heart of a busy Medina when entering and leaving - though you wouldn't know it once you've set foot through the doors. The facilities are also great. Make sure you try their dinner menu at least once. My partner and I were made to feel very welcome from the first minute and it really made the trip what it was. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

This place is trusty worth the rating and price of stay. We decided to stay here as we had an extra night in Marrakech after our tour ended. It was beautiful. The service was impeccable. The 6 course dinner for 2 of us and the traditional hammam bath came out to 160. So only 80 per person. That just was crazy to us. Especially coming from right outside NYC. The outside patio was beautiful. Everything about this riad was luxurious. If you’re going to be in Marrakech. Definitely stay here.
