What a fantastic little Riad! This place was cheap and therefore you need to remember that you get what you pay for. However, we cannot fault it at this standard. Our room was lovely and spacious, it and the bathroom was very clean. Our room was cleaned properly everyday and the staff were so friendly. Youseff, the Manager was very kind and only too happy to help. He saved our bacon when were harassed by guides we had to pay to get back to the Riad (we got lost!!). They demanded more money and he sorted them out. He never tired of our constant, how much for this, how much for that, how do we tell if it is a good one etc etc. The ladies were also very nice, always smiling and their breakfasts........sooooo good. Best breakfast we've had so far! What a feast.
This place was a little oasis in the mayhem of beautiful Marrakech. We would definitely stay again.
