“beautiful and authentic Riad in the Heart/Medina of Marrakesh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

STAYED here in March 2011
Nothing in this remarkable Riad in any way corresponds to what you might normally expect of a hotel in this price range. it was far beyond our expectations and we highly value the individual charme of the French couple who made this Riad to a Haven of Serenity.
We were welcomed warmly by Valerie with "thé a la menthe" and got the beautiful sights of the patio and the rooftop-terrace to know. Traveller will surely fall in love with the serenity and peaceful atmosphere of this outstanding Riad, where you can retire after an exhausting day spent in the souks: comfortable beds, original furniture with colourful and delightful pillows - bright sunlight from the sky dazzling into the patio....extraordinary and down-to-earth atmosphere.
Valérie has very good knowledge of each "quartiers" and good advice for shopping, visit to hammam...Every traveller should be aware that you are travelling in a Muslim hub and so you will sometimes hear the call of the Muezzin from a Minarett- depending on the sense of the wind...

we fell in love with tadelakt interior design, love to details - in architecture and cultural artscraft...
Starter in the Morning: " A table set in the patio" enjoy the best "crêpes" ever and home-made marmelades, fresh orange juice and a animating tea or hot coffee.

insights in the family life and the ups and downs of getting out and about as "frenchies" in marrakesh are also shared -for those who really are interested in it and I found it very enriching experience! I enjoyed is natural and at ease wherever she appears.

To put it in a nutshell: We had a great stay at Valerie's place, enjoyed being part of the family life in the Riad (with a charming dog and cat) and explored Marrakesh by foot and by bus.
we are now planning a second trip to Morocco - and surely start off with Marrakesh....
Chaleureuses salutations à Valérie et famille: Une "main de Fatima" orne le mur de l'entrée. elle protège les maisons marocaines du mauvais oeuil - et nous sommes ravi que vous êtes blessés. Bonjour de Stefanie et Florian - nous surement reviendrons!

advices:
visit "Majorelle Gardens" for a refresher and blue sights to the eyes...eat Merguez-sausages in the evening at a stall (No. 31/30) on the "Djemma el-Fna"...best tajine ever (in a local place) - made on charcoal-fire: "Restaurant Oscar Progrès", Rue BEn MArine (South to the Market).
try the hop-on and off-RED bus for a scenic drive to most of the sights (also Palmeraie) we also enjoyed the rooftop terrace for a sundowner of the "Café des Epices"

we had fun taking the bus to Essaouira and spending 2 days at the beach and white Medina, eating fresh fish and couscous...

Room Tip: first floor is comfortable in terms of silence and fresh air

What luck to have been dragged along to Riad Jaglia by some fellow passengers after our flight out of Marrakech was delayed. Our hosts were exceptionally welcoming, and made our extra night in Marrakech more of a treat than a pain. The rooms were cozy and clean, the service was excellent, and the rates were very reasonable.
I'm only sorry I didn't discover it sooner!

A homebase in the hectic of the Medina!!!! This Riad is just to beautiful. When we entered the Riad and our room we felt "home". The view from our room the 1st floor on the patio was just gorgeous. Orange-, Mandarin- and even a banana trees made this place so relaxing. The room itself is decorated with love and very, very clean.
Valerie and Jean-Pierre have been the best hosts we could imagine. Furthermore the dog and the 3 cats made this stay unforgettable as we always felt so comfortable and welcome.
We really enjoyed the conversations with our hosts in the Patio with a good bottle of wine.
This was more like a visit of good friends than being in a hotel.
Thanks for everything!!!!

It is a very nice place in the middle of the Medina. It´s a small riad, with a very nice Marrochian style patio and clean and comfortable rooms. Very warm and cosy.
I recomend dinner to try excellent tagine and enjoy a really good food, simple and tasty.

The owner of the riad takes really good care of the guest, it is very helpful and considerate. He makes a big effort to make the stay special.

My husband and I stayed here during our first trip to Marrakech and Morocco. I had scoured the internet trying to find a riad that was within our budget and had a good location. We lucked out here! Our room was wonderful. Valerie and Pierre were such great hosts. We loved the gorgeous terrace where we would start the day with a yummy breakfast and end the day lounging on the sofas drinking wine and thinking what a great country Morocco is. Not only was the riad romantic and clean, but our hosts had a ton of information about Marrakech and surrounding areas. We hope to return one day!
