“Very Homely”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

We stayed for 3 nights and then went back for our last night before flying out. The riad and the service from the staff felt so homely that we believed it was a family run business! There weren't any other guests during our stay (for the first 3 nights at least) so the place was a bit too quiet but the staff were very friendly and approachable so wasn't too much of an issue. I think we had the smallest suite, which was nice and comfortable, but it is straight off from the main 'living' area which meant we didn't really have much privacy. However, breakfast was lovely and served when ever we chose and the location was fantastic (although definitely find your route before you arrive in the busy medina as we were initially very lost and ended up walking straight past the riad and continuing on through the maze that is the medina!) I would recommend that they put some signs up along Rue Debachi to help stop guests from walking further than they need to. All in all, lovely riad to stay in and would definitely go back.

Located inside the Medina down the tiny side streets it is just around 5 minutes walk from the main square. Beautiful clean and large rooms with excellent bathrooms. The roof terrace is also perfect to relax either during the daytime or evenings when star gazing!

The staff are incredibly friendly and the food also excellent. Highly recommend this place and I will return.

We were a bit shocked when arriving to the main square in the middle of the busiest time of day, and having to try to find the riad. Luckily it's just a few minutes away from the square, but it was a little challenge to find it. Have a detailed description with you and it's easy to find. The riad a perfectly located and a tranquil place compared to it's surroundings. The best food we had on our trip was there, cooked with an hours notice. Recommended!

It is situated in a strategic place near all the convenience places inside the Medina. The staff is very friendly and they will take care of you in all the details. It a high recommend place if you are looking for peace and tranquility inside the crazy Medina.

We (me 6 months pregnant) en my husband stay in this Riad for 8 nights. We arranged a pick up from the airport and although our flight was 45 min early, our driver was already waiting in a nice clean jeep.

The riad is 5 min from the square in a small side street. In the riad the sounds of the birds will wake you up every morning.

We where very well recieved and taken care of. Having breakfast on the roof terras is amazing. Nothing was too much to arrange and not everybody could speak English well bit that was not a problem (we do not speak any french). The staff Mustafa, Karim and Armina were always there to help without being in the way or trying to sell you anything.

My wife and I traveled to Marrakech for 2 days and one of our Moroccan friends suggested this riad located in the Medina. The riad was very clean and the Lavender Suite was very nice and spacious. I highly recommend eating a meal at the riad as it was some of the best food I had in Morocco. The service at the riad was outstanding and very friendly. They really worked hard to make our stay enjoyable. The location was within a 5-10 min walk of the Djemaa el Fna. I would highly recommend this riad to any friends going to Marrakech. The riad also had free wifi!

This was a really lovely place to stay. The staff was helpful, the rooms beautiful and traditional and the location quite convenient (though a little hard to get to at first). All the rooms are different, however, so make sure you choose one that you like. The rooftop is very pretty and there is wireless in the place! We had one dinner there, and although expensive, it was AWESOME and catered very well to me being vegetarian.

One tip: if you are going to the airport, arrange your own way, because if they do it for you, they will of course charge extra for the commission they are getting
