“Superb Staff and Pretty Riad”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised by how little hassle I faced in Marrakech. I loved the location of this pretty Riad-in the authentic souk where locals buy vegetables and meat. The streets are spotless and we felt safe wandering around until late at night. Its a 10 min walk through the souks to the main square and frankly a welcome walk after heavy meals. The riad has a beautiful small plunge pool which would be priceless in the summer. The dinner served was superb. The staff-Hassan in particular-were wonderful.Hassan,an intelligent and kindly Berber had many interesting insights into Moroccon life.He was great with the children too,playing cards with us until late into the night. The rooms are a little dark but this is typically Riad-esque and Im sure welcome in the height of summer.
Food tip-Fantastic cookery course at Souk Cuisine-great for adults and children and the best way to get to know the souks as the locals do.
Lunch-order Mechoui near the main square-the roasted lamb-served with bread, salt and cumin. Not for the faint hearted but the best lamb i have tasted.Souk Cuisine will show you where it is.

Lovely Riad, very nice atmosphere. Staff is great. Stayed with six guys on a golf trip and we found it a little hard to walk through the Medina with our golf bags on our backs, since people are quite poor. Didn't get hassled at all through. Food was great. Rooms beautifull. Found the beds a little uncomfy but that's personal taste i guess.
Would definately stay here again..

The way to the Riad immediately shows in what poverty people in the Medina live. The Riad provided all you wish for. Superb service and help was offered by the staff! We enjoyed our stay and we highly recommend a visit to this relaxing house.

Top riad in Marrakech The staff were amazing, very friendly and helpful, really made us feel at home. Even though our flight was late they still provided dinner (which was delicious) on our first night. On the day of our departure we could have continued using our room beyond our check-out time but it had been booked by other guests so they gave us the use of a different room for showering etc. until our departure. Nothing was too much trouble; as soon as we appeared on the terrace we were given free soft drinks or tea, sometimes without even asking and breakfast was whenever we got up. The incredible team made our stay perfect and we can't wait to go back

Stayed at the Riad Asna with my husband for a long weekend in March 2012 for my 50th birthday. Lovely traditional riad right in the heart of the old town. A little oasis of calm just a stone's throw from the hustle and bustle of the traditional market street of Bab Doukkala, and walking distance to pretty well everywhere. The French owner Veronique is very welcoming and very helpful and her English is perfectly adequate so we did not find any communication problems. We ate at the riad 2 out of our 4 night stay and it was excellent simple Moroccan fare, and wonderful to sit out on the rooftop terrace to eat it. The riad is tucked away and not easy to find, but we booked a taxi transfer from the airport in advance through Travelrepublic which may have been more expensive but certainly saved any hassle. Only downsides to the accommodation were limited hot water and only a thin curtain separating the bedroom from the ensuite, so not particularly private!

Having been to Morocco before and spent a significant amount of time there, I had high hopes for my first riad stay in Marrakech. I can say that Veronique and her staff are spectacular! The riad was gorgeous and centrally located (10-15 minute walk to Majorelle and Djemm el Fnaa) and the rooms exuded simple luxury and elegance. I would highly recommend that travelers take advantage of the airport/train station transfers that the riad offers - it will save you any headaches of (a) finding the riad and (b) dealing with the overtly zealous taxi drivers looking to to gain a fare. The staff was hip, young, and professional and made it feel like a home with friends rather than a hotel staff. I really cannot recommend this riad enough - it was a tranquil oasis of calm in Marrakech. It was beautiful, a terrific value, and a joy to stay at.
