Like all of Marrakech, this riad is located within a maze of alleyways. On arrival, I couldn't find this place, but when I telephoned in, Hanane, the receptionist was happy to come out straightaway to find me and took me there. For me, it was she who made this hotel great. She was the only person I saw at the hotel who spoke English and so, was the only person I really conversed with there. I booked my excursions through her and she recommended me places to visit. The other members of staff didn't really try, but then, I didn't particularly push my 'French' with them either.
They serve a great breakfast of pancakes, breads, orange juice and coffee, whenever you wish you have it, all at your own pace.
This is a new business, and although the rooms look smaller than what the pictures show, the hotel is still a luxury set-up, with peace and quiet, although it is only a minute away from the central souqs, and about 5 mins away from the famous Djeema El-Fna square.
As a solo female traveller, I felt safe amongst the busy souqs, and this riad provided a safe calm haven from the madness and craziness of the medina.
I always took my key out with me, which apparently meant that they couldn't service my rooms, but I always prefer this anyway. They may not have had a hospitality course before opening such business but it seemed that anything you asked for would have been dealt with asap.
A great intimate hotel that met with all my expectations. I would definitely recommend friends to stay there. But if you're one for big corporate chains, then this one's not for you.
