“Great value, close to the markets, and safe!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2011

This hotel is located in maze of backstreets, but it's just a five minute walk to the souk markets (where lots of fun is to be had!). It's really safe because the desk staff man the door 24/7; in fact, you have to knock to be let in (you don't get a key to the building, the desk staff just open the door to let you in). My friends thought the bed was a bit hard, but I thought it was comfortable. I had air conditioning in my room but my friends didn't - I would suggest you ask for a room with air conditioning (it can get warm and stuffy). Each room seems to have its own perks...while I had air conditioning, my friends had a large double bed (I shared 2 twins w my partner) and a beautiful bathroom (I had a bathroom with some poorly-laid brick foundation).

The hotel itself is beautiful on the inside, and there are lots of great extras to find there - specifically, food and spa services. The breakfast each morning was delicious, and they serve amazing mint tea that they will serve to you whenever you ask. There's also a nice rooftop terrace.

The spa services were really good but only about 15 minutes each. I'm not sure how the pricing works because they told us first that you could get all the services for 50 euro, then they gave us a sheet with the prices and the desk staff said there were no package deals (each service was 35 euros), but then they didn't charge us when we checked out (we just tipped the masseuse). It was really weird, but worked in our benefit.

Room Tip: Ask for air conditioned room (each room has its own perks). Possibly sandals for shower?

Spent a week here in May 2011. Very hospitable - Staff are excellent & the night duty employee Said is very helpful. Bed was a bit on the hard side fo my liking but slept OK. Could be a bit noisy if fully occupied because all rooms on three levels open onto a central core 'patio' where breakfast is served and if some groups are a bit loud it could disturb. We were lucky. Breakfasts were continental but good. Ample bread rolls, jam, eggs, warm pancakes, fresh orange juice, tea/coffee. The ladies had a hammam & massage which they loved. There is a steam room too.
Rooms have large flat screen TVs but only have Arabic, French, Italian speaking programmes. Also have aircon for the hotter months.
Located two minutes from Djemaa el Fna square which is unbelivably chaotic late afternoon and evenings, Arrived 3 days after the bombing and were apprehensive but experienced absolutley no trouble from local people who welcome tourists - just barter very hard for everything you buy - usually 50% off asking price. Begging is rife - watch handbags etc but we had no problems.
Access to the Riad is ultimately via very narrow alleys, luggage best handled by wheelbarrow porters for a few dirhams - but perfectly safe.
Do take in a trip to the Ourika Valley, and if time permits 2 - 3 days over the Atlas mountains to Ouarzazate or Zagora and a camel trip into the desrt with overnight in a Bedouin tent!
Morrocan dinner and show at Chez Ali (some ten miles out of town) is touristy for foreigners and locals alike but quite a spectacle - we enjoyed it.

Room Tip: Probably better on 1st or 2nd Floor.

we decided a bit late to spend new year in marrakech, and so most of the more well-known riads were full, probably because we were a group of 4 adults and 3 children. this riad had availability, and although there were zero comments on line, we realized this was because it had only been open a month or so. the fotos looked good, and the location looked good, so we reserved half board, at a very reasonable price.
arriving from the airport, we were taken down some rather seedy looking streets, and we wondered what we were going to find! but when we eventually arrived, everything was super clean and friendly, and brand new. the style is more morrocan-morrocan than european-morrocan, as apparently the owners are 2 brothers who have returned homer from france, rather than the more typical foreign owned riads, which are more designed.
location excellent, rooms good size, with heatinmg and air.con., food fine, staff friendly, very quiet. the only draw back was that the mattresses are rock hard. brand new but positively othopedic. but apart from that, everything was fine, and I wish them all the best with the new enterprise.
