This is a very spacious 2-bedroom riad. With a large courtyard (with beautiful citrus trees) and the rooms on opposite sides, there is a feeling of privacy for each inhabitant. The price is excellent, and includes breakfast provided each day by the very reliable Malika, who also cleans. The location is south of Place des Ferblantiers, which is removed from the full hubbub of the square and central medina. It is just off Rue Berrima, making it much easier to find that some of the more well-hidden riads. However, it might be a little far from the centre for anyone who does not like to walk. We were staying in the middle of a record cold winter in Marrakech, and discovered that the radiators that can be seen in the pictures no longer work or are not working at present, sadly. Reliance on reverse-cycle air con alone to heat the relatively large rooms was not adequate, and we had to contact the owner and the manager about the issue. They were very understanding and moved quickly to put in extra heaters, which certainly helped us a lot. Thank you, Cesare and Mr. Aziz!
I lead a Creative Yoga Retreat in Marrakech in July 2017 for 6 days at 2 Riads, Dar Yasmin and Dar Les Epices. It was really amazing and a special experience. The owners, Cesare and Anna, are caring, very organized, generous, and helpful. The manager, Aziz, was helpful and took care of us organizing taxi, hammam, and fieldtrip reservations. He was always available 24*7 for all our questions and requests. Latifa and Malika, the chefs, are the most incredible cooks ever. We had delicious and healthy Moroccan dishes and we were so happy we preferred and asked to have all our meals at home instead of heating out. The riad is simply enchanting, cozy, clean, welcoming with a rooftop to practice yoga or an internal garden and sofas and chairs to rest. AC everywhere. The riad is nicely furnished in Moroccan style. Latifa or Malika will take care of your laundry as well. The riad will also organize all your transfers to and from the airport or railway station and everywhere in town as well as any activity or fieltrip you would be interested in. You will have you taxi driver available any time you wish and we even went to Essaouira on a fieldtrip for a day. I highly recommend this place for the generosity and good heart of the people that welcome you there and make you feel at home and for the amazing organization that allows you to enjoy the beautiful city of Marrakech. I highly recommend it! The riad is perfect for yoga retreats or to travel solo, with family, or friends. I thank everybody again!
This is a very comfortable house near the mellah area and right by the old Bahia palace. Its in a good quite area, with local shopping for food and within easy and direct walking distance to the main Jma El Fna square. 15 minutes. The nearby square to the house is called Place Des Ferbantiers has been recently done up and has transformed the area. Familes and tourists enjoy promenading here, and there are various good cafes and restaurants. Getting away from the main bustle of the Jma in the evening to a more local experience is great.
It is a spacious house with two large ensuite bedrooms, suitable for two couples or indviduals.
I enjoyed my stay there very much, I visit quite often for business and appreciate having a comfortablequiet place all to myself, with good beds and linen, art reference books and a full working kitchen. Malika the housekeeper is a fantastic cook and will conjure up a sublime meal. I entertained on one visit some business associates and she really served us a meal fit for a king, with starters and desert. It is great for both privacy and entertaining. I cant recomend it highly enough.
This little Riad is incredibly full of charm. Beautiful decors, warm colors on the walls, stunning view form the large terrace on the Atlas....
The maid Malika is very attentive and prepares different type of breakfasts every morning.
Its location is very quiet and safe. The near Royal Palace El Badi, provide security 24/7 to all surrounds.
Grocery shops almost on the door mat . The famous Place is about 10 minutes walk from the Riad.
Ask to Aziz to organize a nice tours around Marrakesh and you will not be disappointed.
I'll visit again!
We have been staying for few days in November in this Riad and it was just great. The location first of all: so close to the sight seen such as Jemaa el Fnaa and the souks. Since it is located next to Palais el Badi, safety is another benefit of this place. Then Naseur, your host: very attentive, discreet and excellent cook: most probably the best Moroccan dishes we have had in our journey were been prepared by him.
Last but not least, Aziz the director of the place. Aziz makes you seen a Marrakech away from the usual circuit. In spite his young age, Aziz knows Marrakech better than anybody else and is simply a pleasure to chat with him.
We would recommend this Riad to anyone travelling to Marrakech. Azzi Naseur, thank you
