I loved this hotel. The location is excellent. There's a very old-worldy charm to the decor. The staff were very pleasant and the breakfast was impressive. My only regret was having no time for the spa, definitely next time!

We spent one night here. The rooms were not as luxurious as other places we had stayed in Morocco, but fine. The courtyard is pretty. The breakfast buffet was outstanding. It had more variety of fresh fruits and breads/pastries than any other place we stayed. Rooftop pool and deck are also quite nice.

Loved this hotel where the staff are the best thing about it, warm and friendly people for whom nothing seems too much trouble. They went out of their way to take care of us. We had a suite on the top floor (of 3) which had tiny windows opening onto the square outside the old town, and big windows with...

Excellent and elegant riad in the Medina close to Bab Marrakech gate . Had a very nice premium suite and much appreciated the professional and friendly staff. The food was top and the roof swimming pool and dining terrace are a plus. The Medina is smaller than the one in Marrakech but not as noisy and more easy to discover...

This was a great hotel. Had a nice sized room, room 11. Service was great. The breakfast was great as well. Many choices. Treated me very well. Very good location right inside the Bab Marrakech. Would stay there again.

This was my first trip to Morocco with friends and it was made all the better by the staff and accommodation at the hotel. We spent 5 nights here out of a 7 day trip. The location was perfect & like with many accommodations in Morocco, the entrance is deceptive of the beauty that lies behind! The rooms were spacious...

The decor is dreamy, the staff is gracious and lovely, the location in the medina is perfect, the restaurant is very, very good. We were there off-season, but the breakfast set-up is very basic-- I think that's the only negative thing I could say about this hotel. We stayed in a Portuguese suite, which was really spacious and cosy at...

We have just spent three nights here as part of a three center holiday in Morocco. If you were not shown where the hotel is you would never find it. With just a simple blue door in a high white wall and no name sign it hides conveniently just inside the Medina. It is a total contrast inside to what...

We were very impressed after entering the Lobby door to see the large beautiful lobby and garden leisure and dining area. This riad has all the ammenities, wonderful service, great dining, and very well appointed rooms. Just outsjde is the really unique medina with very interesting souks.and ancient and very active harbor. We very highly recommend this affordable luxury hotel.
