This Riad was not easy to find , used my iPhone GPS. Found later a brown sign , I followed . I wasn't able too, to see the sign at the door . Don't know what I expected to see. Anyhow I knocked on the door and I was greeted by a welcoming smile . The Riad itself is very... More

This Riad ticks all the boxes and more -location, price and the staff are amazing and helpful. We have stayed here four times in the last two years - it was nice to see the same friendly faces greet us again. We've stayed In other Riads but they don't compare to this. We will be back again - thanks for... More

If you're going to Marrakesh I strongly recommend you this Riad. A pleasant environment and very kind people are waiting for you. They will provide you information about the city, the culture and the places you should visit. Very close to the center of Marrakech. I ate there the best omelet of my whole life! :)

Very friendly staff, can not speak highly enough of the service we received (map and mint tea on arrival, with a summary of where to go and how to get there). Room was compact, clean, and had everything essential, bar a fridge. Breakfast was definitely a highlight of our stay at the riad as it varied every morning. All this... More

Warm welcome from the host. Very clean room with excellent ensuite facilities and comfortable beds. Lovely roof top garden where a delicious breakfast was enjoyed. rooms are all surrounding a delightful courtyard, but it does mean that noise from other guests in the courtyard can be heard. Good central location.

Excellent is certainly the first word that comes to mind if describing this beautiful riad. Located only a few minutes walk from the main plaza and in the middle of the medina, this riad is a oasis of peace. We stayed in a room on the first floor - not any hotel we have ever stayed in was THAT clean!... More

Very nice riad. Clean, beuautifully built with great roof terrace, quiet street, close to sights, very friendly and attentive personell. If you have a chance book the Ghizlane room, it's the best one. Also recommend hammam treatments in this riad.

To begin, I had a room on the first floor with a double and single bed so I am sure that there are more fabulous rooms..I just didn't stay in one. It was fine, but not amazing. The pictures make the riad look much larger than it actually is. It's pretty small, but the common areas were spacious enough for... More

It's a traditional and beautiful riad with a lovely courtyard and fantastic roof terrace. Rooms have a lot of space, but one bad thing is that it takes a VERY long time to get hot water in the shower. Helpful staff that tells you all about the city. Very good complimentary breakfast. The location is good since it's in the... More
