My fiance and I will be coming back to spend one thousand and one night at this place, because this December we could only stay for 5 days.This riad's architecture and interior are infused with the most exotic historical significance and serve as a classic example of Oriantalism. We had an amazing experience and have been treated like a royalty,...

I spent 7 days at the Riad Jenai. Not only the tasteful interieur was awesome, but also the variety of breakfasts I got - it was different every day and only if I had a wish for something (I fell in love with crêpes berbers) I got it again, but also and especially the attention of Lahcen was extraordinary. His...

Stayed here at the beginning of January as part of my partner’s 40th celebrations and it really exceeded expectations. This is a stunning riad right in the centre of the Medina by the Ben Youssef Mosque and a swift enough walk to the main square of Jmaa El-Fnaa. The place itself is decorated in a traditional Moroccan style (lamps, fancy...

Wonderful and charming little hotel in the middle of the Medina. Works more like a guesthouse with only 4 guest rooms, and hosts on the premises; Yannick was very welcoming, always helpful and kind. Everything is within walking easy distance: 5min to the souks, 15min to the main square Jemaa el Fna, 20min to the YSL house etc... Staff was...

“3 rooms on the first floor: two overlooking the main courtyard (we stayed in one of these with red decor, lovely). One overlooking the dining room courtyard which can be a bit loud due to kitchen staff speaking on the phone a lot. Last room is on the top floor by the terrace and pool.”

“Two rooms on first floor overlook inner courtyard with a lovely (covered) terrace/balcony connecting them to the remainder of the riad. No bathroom door on 'Mogador' (deluxe double) - not sure about other 3 rooms. Check before booking if you're of a reserved nature!”
