This place is a real gem. An oasis of peace in the hustle & bustle of Marrakech life. I was really surprised at how quiet and peaceful it was. If you want to drink yourself silly and party till you drop, this place is not for you. However, if you want to experience a real taste of something unique, then this is it. It is not at all like staying in a hotel, but like staying with friends - but friends who have, or will get, everything you need. As other comments say, you don't even need to lock your room, the place feels so safe and protected. The attention to detail is second to none, with different tablecloths and glassware at every meal. Then the breakfasts....! I don't do Continental Breakfasts. To me they are a waste of time. But these were so beautifully presented and contained different little delicacies every day, so that I ate more than I ever have before. Of course, the view from the roof terrace helps everything go down so much better. And Sybille the landlady, seems to know what you need before you do! And whatever else you do, or don't do, make sure you try the full hammam! A scrub down with a Brillo pad, then buckets of hot water thrown all over you!! Brilliant! I cannot recommend this place enough, and in fact I have already booked again for next year. I am already looking forward to it, and who knows, perhaps next year, I might even not get lost in the souks…........
