We are a group of 4 friends who go away every year for a girly weekend. We found this fantastic Riad after looking at another one on Trip Advisor. I contacted the owner but it was full, she however said she owned another one, Riad Alaka. We arrived late atfernoon and Aziz the Riads' manager had arranged for someone to pick us up from the airport. We were dropped at a taxi rank where Aziz met us. We followed him through a maze of alleyways of red walls until we came to the Riad. Once inside we were amazed how lovely it was. We had booked the 2 suites but got a chance to look at the other rooms. The decor was traditional Moroccan colours with traditional furniture and accessories. The whole Riad was beautiful. There is a jacuzzi on the roof top along with sunbeds and chairs as well as a shaded lounge area where you could relax. We also had breakfast there each morning. Breakfast consisted of crepes, fresh bread, preserves,cake and natural yoghurt washed down with fresh orange juice and your choice of hot drink. The Riad is a 15 minute walk to Djemaa el Fna and you soon get used to the beep of the scooters and the madness of their driving. Once you reached the main square you cannot believe how big and chaotic it is, Full of snake charmers, henna tattooists, fresh orange juice (amazing and costs about 30p for a glass), Yes you do get hasselled by the stall holders, restaurant staff, taxi drivers, horse and carriage drivers, all wanting you to use there services or buy from them, but not in an aggressive way. They use phrases like 'we're cheaper than Primark'. We ate most nights for around £5 per head and had some nice meals. After a hard days bartering in the heat it was great to return to the calm and tranquil Riad and get into the plunge pool. You have to be brave but it is sooo refreshing. We didn't use the Hamman but those who did said it was very good. Aziz and the Riads other staff Soufian and Malika were always on hand to get you drinks or give you advice and were very friendly. At night we went into the Old City and the New City but it was lovely to return to the Riad and have a relaxing drink on the rooftop.

Room Tip: The Suites are only 10 euros per night extra

For the first time in our life, we tried a Riad. What a marvellous experience! The Riad is modern with a nice pool at the ground floor and a pleasant terrace on the top. The rooms are spacious and well arranged with all the commodities. The welcome is friendly and , last but not least, the cooking was excellent. Hamman, jacuzzi and massage are possible.
To be done again!!!

Perfect stay. I would recommend this Riad to anyone traveling to Marrakech. As the other reviewers said, the riad is beautiful,confortable, clean, and the food is great. Its 10 min walk to Djema el Fna, just far enough to avoid noise...Its also about 10 min walk to Jardin majorelle. A MUST. and you can easily get to medressa ben youssef and maison de la photographie from the riad too.
All and all was AMAZING but what really made this riad standing out is the staff. They are professional, helpful and will do everything to make your stay the best one possible. THANK YOU TO AZIZ AND SOUFIANE for your warm welcome and for making our stay so memorable!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ps: we stayed in Essaouira Room. it was big enough. bathroom very clean. we were concerned about the size of the room before getting there but in the end it was, as I said. PERFECT. oh. and by the way. there is a jacuzzy and hammam on the roof top!!!
*************************
Merci a monsieur Aziz et a Soufiane pour l'accueil memorable que vous nous avez reserve. Nous avons passé d'agreables moments en votre compagnie. Vous avez fait toute la difference. Que Dieu vous comble.

Really nice riad with very comfortable rooms at reasonable prices. Moroccan breakfast offered and evening meals available if requested.

The best thing about this riad was it's central location and ease to get to the main square. My last stay in Marrakesh I spent ages getting lost but this was not the case here.

Staff are friendly and helpful.

Didn't use all of the facilities such as Hamam etc but would recommend if you have the time. Recommend you take up offer of airport transfer as it was easy, good value and convenient.

My Girlfriend and I stayed here over Valentines weekend and both had a great time. The Riad itself is lovely; it is beautifully decorated with an authentic Moroccan feel running through it. The rooms were great with comfy beds and peaceful surroundings and the terracotta shower was a real novelty.

Breakfast was also fantastic with a nice selection of things to eat. But above all, the thing that really stood out to us was the friendliness of the staff; they were amazing and couldn’t do enough for you. I would recommend this Riad to anyone; yes it is a 10 to 15 min walk from the main square. But the fact it’s away from the main tourist sites and set in its own neighbourhood kind of gives it some charm. My girlfriend and I didn’t find this short walk to the square a chore at all.
