“Everything you need”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2010

Location, authentic, great food, superb service - this place is the real deal.
Although we wandered off on our entry this place is the first left as soon as you enter the medina. It is un-missable with two beautiful gigantic blue doors at the entrance.
The staff were super helpful, giving us towels immediately as we arrived so we could shower, advising us on food etc. Our room was adorable and this place was our first taste of a riad and we were more than impressed.
The location is great for wandering around the medina and there is a great cafe just down from the riad where you can get a great cup of mint tea and watch the world walk by.
Breakfast here is great, really filling pancakes and great bread and the yummiest little buns - kept us going until dinner.
This place comes highly recommended.

Riad is located in ideal street near djamaa al Fenna and is nice and quite. the staff are very helpful and nice. it has large rooms with attached baths and small pool in the middle.
now few things which I would say about Riad, there was no hot water in bath rooms and i avoided taking bath with cold water. We ordered lunch at Riad, which was beef tagine with salad and coke and theyt charged us 600 dirhams along with 160 dirhmas for drinks. I think it was far too expensive as you can have excellent lunch outside for 200 dirhams.
overall i would recommend the riad to fellow travellers.

The staff are friendly and helpful especially the night porter (Salah) , the riad is ideally located, very close to the medina. The roof terrace is very nice and the rooms are very comfortable. The only thing that lets the facilities down was the fairly poor air conditioning system. The term air condition is used very loosy, this however seems to be a problem throughout the city of Marrakech.

Definitely recommend - five minute walk to djeema el fna. Great setting inside - garbage allowed to pile up outside.
Wifi; breakfast serve; they will prepare dinner if you like; international guests. Only 5 rooms.
I chose this riad because of the quality compared to others similarly located. Found it on ebay.
