“Refused to this hotel”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2010

Me and my Moroccon boyfriend booked this hotel for 1 night.
However, when we arrived there was a finger pointed to me and the men in the hotel told me; "You are Welcome, but your friend here (finger pointed at my boyfriend) not!We were told that when you are not married you can not sleep in this hotel.
The guy was not friendly.
We went to another Riad were we were before and we were very welcome there.

The day after the Hotel took money from our Visa acoount with the words that we were not there on the day that we booked!

Nice hotel, no! They discriminate!
So, our advice...look for another Riad in Marrakech. There a so much nice places were everybody is Welcome!

I stayed in this riad for two nights with my boyfriend.
It's very convenient location, just 5 min walk to the main jamma el-fna square.
The riad is very pretty and clean, and staff provided amazing hospitality with professional manner. They have very nice breakfast in a terrace. I definitely want to stay there again if I would go to Marrakech.

I stayed here with a group of friends. The rooms are basic but spacious and clean. Staff extremely helpful although you might need to use a few words of French. The water pressure on the first floor made showering tricky but my friends on the ground floor said their shower was great.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2009

This was the only riad that we actually booked before arriving in Marrakech, and it was excellant.
The position was close to the medina but not too close that it was loud.
We arrived in the evening, and had arranged a taxi through the riad to pick us up, which didn't arrive, and when we left that was some slight confusion about the payment of this as my french is not brilliant and the lady who runs the riad's english is about the same.
However, the rooms was lovely, with good shower. The meal that we ate at the riad in the evening seemed to be neverending and delicious, and the breakfasts were lovely.

Overall a fantastic little riad, excellant value for money, make sure you book ahead.

Great position in the centre of medina but in a very quiet and silent road, that is just what you need after a whole day in Marrakech.
We enjoid especially the hospitality, the friendlyness and valueable recommendations concerning sight seeing, public and private transport and guides provided by Soufian and the very friendly hotel owner Wadiy. The entire hotel has a very nice decoration, books are available, etc. We felt from the very beginning as being at home!
