Wonderful stay in this quiet Raid with attentive staff. The interior design was nice and the lounge area was beautiful. When my friend and I were there, there were only 2 other guests. We had the lounge to ourselves and it was nice to be able to read without having being disturbed by traffic. Breakfast was nice and filling. The raid is about a 15-20min walk from the main square or you can easily catch a cab for 20DH from the main square.

Note: In Marrakech, if anyone comes up to you and wants to "show" you around or bring you on a "walk", do politely decline. You can easily explore the Medina on foot by yourself and these people (usually men and boys) will try to extort money from you after the "walk".

Upon arrival to the city Marrakesh I got shocked I glued to my partner and didn't know what to look after first me my luggage or my gucci bag, even thou it was just a 50 meter walk from the taxi...dirty, stinky and millions of people around I was regretting not taking 5* hotel outside centre... A tiny little street with tiny little door... And another shock! A little oasis inside... Small paradise I loved it from the first second. Wonderful rooms and specious bathrooms, superb food, mega friendly and helpfull staff... This place is magic. With an open roof in front of magnificent swimming pool with the floor covered with a flower petals we had our dinner...quiet, smell of the mint tea all over... Next day i felt bit more comfortable to walk around the city... again evening on the top of the terrace with the view on the Marrakesh...mint tea, fresh orange juice...stinky Marrakesh... I want You back! every moment in that place was so different, amazing! Great centred location close to main square, muzeums, palaces, and all other places ' to see'! evening in Caffe Arab sensual restaurant which I also do recommend! Definitively go for camel ride, the riad stuff will arrange everything and price is very good! Loved it, loved it, loved it. We plan to go back next year.

First of all, definitely get the airport transfer as the Riad would be impossible to find on your own the first time! The Riad is small, quiet, very clean, cozy, and has a very nice staff (particularly Sandra the french woman at reception). Breakfast was included for us, and was absolutely delicious. The Riad is about a 12 to 15 minute walk away from the square, and conveniently has ATMs on the way the way there.

The rooms are spacious, have strong air conditioning, bathrooms are very clean, and Wifi reaches the room.

I removed one star not because of the Riad itself but because of a trip we booked through it-- we went on a day trip to Ouzoud waterfalls (which by the way is absolutely worth it, breathtaking place!) and paid to be on an airconditioned mini-bus. The bus was FAR from air conditioned, extremely cramped, and after talking to other travellers we realized we had paid a little more than everyone else by booking through the Riad. We felt we overpaid and were falsely advertised to.

However, other than that trip, this RIad is truly a relaxing and great place to come back to at the end of a day in Marrakech.

We stayed here for the first two nights of our first trip to Marrakech and it was lovely. It's a bit tricky to find as it's down a few alleyways where taxis don't go but once you get your bearings it's easy. The Riad is well situated for exploring J'maa al Fna and the north of the Medina. The staff are excellent - really friendly and accommodating - and the Riad itself is a welcome calm, quiet, cool place amongst the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. The ground floor pool is particularly wonderful! Our room was lovely and the bathroom was completely unique. We would happily stay here again.

This Riad is very pretty and charming inside. All of the rooms are decorated well and are clean and comfortable. The location of this Riad is a little tricky as it is through the souks but once you get your bearings it's not too difficult to find. The team were very helpful and friendly. We had a mix up with our taxi transfer on the morning of departure and the owner herself came at 5am to drive us to the airport. The food and drink here are also excellent. The terrace is developing and the plunge pool was a welcome relief after the heat of the day.

The riad was staffed by very friendly and helpful staff, which made the holiday so much more relaxing and enjoyable. The riad was very relaxing and the calming decor was a contrast from the hustle and bustle of the medina and the souks. The location was excellent however after a week the basic breakfasts got a little boring but even this did not put a damper on our holiday. Overall great accommodation from which to explore Marrakech!

Great location once you find it - hidden away down the lanes. This Riad is like a tardis inside. Only 6 rooms so not crowded. Nothing was too much trouble for the team, they were very chatty and helpful. Nice breakfast, as another review mentioned, it wasn't rushed. Excellent value for the price paid - thanks for a lovely stay.
