I could honestly say the best place I've visited with the most accommodating staff on holiday. Here's why LOCATION: Inner old city area CLOSE to main market. This is a great place to stay due to close proximity of all the markets. Most Riads are hard to find in Marrakesh so our first time was a bit scary. Imagine you...

15mins drive to the Riad to/from the airport. When booking online they charge €30 for transfer. The taxi drivers from the airport charge 200-250D even though the poster guide said 100D. You have less bargaining power from the airport to the Riad. The Riad charges 175D. Actual price 50-70D. Recommend you download Maps.me app before and download Marrakech as the...

Very good location, 2 minutes walk from Jemma El fna square. Doesn't look like much from outside but when you step inside, it's beautiful! Very friendly staff! Can't do enough! Would recommend if wanting to stay in the medina!

This wasn't my first visit to Marrakech, my previous visit I stayed in Palmeraire which was a bit quiet, so chose the Medina this time. The Medina delivered exactly what I expected, 24/7 insanity which I like, although please be warned you will be challenged by various African nations every 10ft, they're harmless but can be irritating when it gets...

We stayed three nights in a beautiful duplex suite on the second floor. Extremely clean, excellent king size bed, and nicely decorated. The staff was super friendly and attentive to every need. It was wonderful coming back to a peaceful swimming pool after walking in the Medina. The pool is small but it serves its purpose. We had breakfast by...

In the very special city of Marrakech, the Riad option is the best. In my opinion, (I am a frequent traveller of 5* hotels) that s the best way to live the "Medina" experience. This Riad is a tipical Marrakesh villa with a central court (and a small but nice swimming pool). You see nothing from the outside but a...

The Riad was simply perfect. The staff was super nice. Everything was clean and everyone was super helpfully. When we wanted to do trips, the staff helped and planned it immediately. When there were problems, it was their biggest pleasure to help. Thank you for making our journey to Marrakech that awesome. :)

This riad really made our Marrakech experience. The rooms are spacious, elegant, and fully air-conditioned. The staff is friendly and helpful. The terrace offers beautiful views of the city, and all rooms open up to the courtyard pool (or a balcony overlooking the pool). The location is very central, though you have to look for the door to know you're...
