“Traditional Moroccan riad”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

You walk down a small lane, and as soon as you open the door you step into a colourful oasis.
Everyone goes out of their way to make your stay memorable.
The only downside is everyone speaks French and not much English.
But you can still communicate with everyone.

This small Riad very well located and close to the el-Bahdi Palace and very easy to find. The rooms and decor of this property are first class. George and his assistant Kabir are so helpful as are the rest of the staff. Nothing is too much trouble for them. Breakfast is a treat and guests sit together at a beautifully set table. Other meals can be organized if required. The rooftop terrace overlooks the el-Bahdi palace and the storks nesting on the top of it. This is a perfect place to relax after a day experiencing the wonderful sights, smells, people and atmosphere of this vibrant multi-cultural city.
It is amazingly peaceful at the Riad both inside and out considering it is so centrally located. We had a wonderful four days there and recommend it to anyone travelling to Marrakech. There is an airport transfer service available if requested, just ask!

Room Tip: The rooftop rooms look interesting but they are all charming.

Just returned from a lovely weekend at the most beautiful Riad.

A small door in an alleyway leads into a stunning courtyard and at once you feel relaxed. The riad is decorated to a stunning standard with interesting little features everywhere. Beautiful terrace next to the Badi Palace with storks nesting and chattering away. Lovely sunset views.

Our room was the Chocolat Suite which was amazing. Absolutely huge and immaculate inside, gorgeous bathroom and lovely bed and sofas everywhere.

But it's George and his staff that set the place apart. They really cannot do enough for you and are always asking if you need anything and preparing little touches everywhere from welcoming us with tea and suggesting places to go, to hauling our breakfast onto the roof everyday. Breakfast is huge and delicious. We didn't try any other meals but sure they would be good.

The positioning of the riad is great, so near to the Jemma El Fna square but far enough away to feel relaxed when you return. A nice walk with great shops and friendly Moroccans takes you up to the square.

Great value and apparently under used by Brits. You will be made to feel special when you stay and will leave feeling very happy. We will be back.....

Ben and Lindsey

Room Tip: All rooms seem great but the suites are huge.....Chocolat is very quiet

We can highly recommend this Riad. It is clean, elegant, thoughtfully decorated throughout, very quiet and conveniently located. It is a good place to chill out and relax - essential after a trip outside into the intensity and chaos that is Marrakesh. Loved the roof terraces. There is a good vibe here, the staff are warm and friendly people. Despite our limitations with the French language we found both George the owner and his son Thomas to be charming hosts and good company.

An absolutely stunning riad, the gorgeous rooftop terrace has a beautiful jacuzzi and sunbed, great for relaxing after a day out in the heat. Amazing decor and tranquil atmosphere in a great location. A 15 min walk to Djeema el fna but interesting shops along the way. Petit Taxi stand just out near the Jewish Square which do delicious (and cheap!) Tagines. We would definitely recommend staying here, the staff are so kind, friendly and helpful. Can't wait to visit and stay again!
