“Very pleasant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

This is a very comfortable quiet Ryad within walking distance to the Jemaa el Fna and palais el Bahia in the jewish quarters (Mellah). Very nice and helpful personnel and nice french owner. Perfect for a mid-week exploration of wonderful Marrakech

Just as imagined, a calm oasis away from the hustle and bustle. Zacharia there was very helpful with our needs, though our short stay didn't leave us much time for home cooked foods and hammam there. Staff keen to make sure stay enjoyable, even to getting breakfast early when a day trip was planned.
Make sure to book airport transfers in advance from the riad, as would not like to try to find it myself on the first night. Would definitely use again, if life takes me back to Marrakach...

Room Tip: Aim high! We found ourselves in a bottom courtyard room, but a room at the top caught our attention...

To begin with we didn't know where to go, or what to do, the friendly staff in the Riad went out of there way to make sure we were taken care of in every instance. They literally couldn't help out enough. The authentic Morrocan food was excellent. An ideal location for exploring the old town Medina and Souk markets. Top marks!

Nothing wrong with place nice owner and good friendly staff. Priced correctly and not far from main square, location can be a off putting at first ( Jewish quarter ) but it's safe to walk around.
Rooms not bad but I'd come in summer if I came again!

A totally relaxing and peaceful place to stay with small comfortable rooms and ensuite facilities. Close to the Badii and Bahia palaces.

The staff where really helpful giving directions and even started breakfast early when we had to leave early. When our flight arrived late in the evening they arranged to pick us up from the airport and cooked us dinner.

We loved watching the sun set from the roof terrace and sitting in the courtyard 'snug' relaxing after a busy day in the maddness of marrakesh.

Quiet with good rooms (& air conditioning !" Staff were so helpful even giving us their mobile numbers incase we got lost. Would recommend this Dar as great location with amazing staff. The markets and square are easy to find and taxis can get close even though its within the medina

Picture this:5 adults and two children across three generations of family (12months to 60+ yrs) staying in Marrakech together for a week. Never been there before. Narrow alleyways in the Medina shared with motorbikes, donkeycarts, pushbikes, sights, sounds, smells assulting all senses and it's 45 deg C in the shade. You trudge along the endless maze to a wooden door in the wall and knock. You climb a couple of steps ...and the world changes dramatically. Step into a beautiful oasis. Scrupulously clean, friendly attentive staff. plenty of food, comfortable beds and a great price. "Mine Hosts" are multilingual, knowledgeable, attentive give you confidence that your stay wil be in good hands. We had a wonderful stay and would throughly recommend it to others.
