Abi is a wonderful host. He helped us a lot with navigating the chaos of marrakesh and went above and beyond expectations.
He has a warm heart and a beautiful place. the rooftop is a great place to relax and the rooms are elegantly furnished.
many thanks abi

We lived in Morocco for a while,
and in that time we had a pleasure to discover the Blue Berber and
its amazing atmosphere in the perfect location inside the Medina. Abi - the owner - is great guy and he pay attention at every single detail which trasform the magic marrakesh into a faboulus journey.

We have slept there several time and we suggested the place to a lot of friends, everyone report a wonderful feedback and how amazing was.
I'm a bit jealous to disclose this information through internet but all the staff of blue berber deserve this review.

A very lovely and relaxed place to stay in the middle of the center. the garden in the middle of the riad and the roof top are very enjoyable to relax and hang out. the rooms are clean and furnished with an eye for details and tradition, plus the owner&host is very nice and helpfull!

To this beautiful place in the very best location of marrakech's medina we arrived as strangers late at night but awoke as friends. Abdessadek ("Abi") is the best host you could ask for. He gave us so much interesting back round information about the city, culture and the country that it was easy for us to find our way through this amazing city. He even showed us around some nice areas and was very helpful pointing us in great directions (shops with good quality, authentic hammams, paths lesser traveled by tourists, great food, etc.)

The Riad itself is of course very beautiful - you can't go wrong with staying at most of the riads - but we recommend staying at this Riad because:

1) This Riad does not only feels like - actually it is - a family home. No anonymous type of hotel. Of course you can hide in your room and you get a lot of privacy if you wish, but this courtyard is far too green and wonderful, the roof-terrace too spacious and refreshing, the personal singing bird too melodious and Abi a great source of knowledge and dialogue partner.

2) this Riad was remodeled up to great standard but you can still see and feel the original structure. The bathrooms are very nice and special - The Bedrooms very spacious - everything is very clean and you feel save at any time. It feels like you could have fit the double amount of rooms in this house, but the owner seems to follow a great own agenda: Not to overcrowd the place and involve the right people to the preserver this heritage building. It doesn't feels like a overdone almost movie-like version of 1001 nights, like you might find at some other places around the medina.

3) The breakfast was great. Everything is homemade. If you like they show you how everything is done.

4) Location: Easy to reach from the airport, Only short walk from the taxi down into the medina. Nice and helpful neighbors!

5) Abi: you have to meet him!

We hope to be back soon. Would be great if this was helpful to you finding the right place to stay in Marrakech!

Room Tip: we loved the room "sky blue": wake up with the sun filtered through stained glass.

We found this Riad by chance when walking round Marrakech, luckily the door was open so we wondered in and found Abi (the owner). He is a lovely Morrocan man, speaks very good English and was extremely welcoming and helpful. I think there are only 5 or 6 rooms but they are very spacious, clean and beautifully decorated and although there is no air conditioning, the rooms stay lovely and cool. There is a large roof terrace with lots of seats and cushions to relax. It's in a perfect location and is great value for the money.
Would definitely stay here again, Abi is a wonderful host and he maintains an extremely beautiful Riad.
