We arranged a taxi with the riad to pick us up from the airport, which is a good idea as it's a bit tricky to find until you get used to the area. We were dropped closeby to the riad and a staff member came out to meet us. We were given pastries and mint tea on arrival and Patrice...

Thanks a lot for this message. We were very attentive to your message, Patrice told us about this sound problem of the "Floraison de l'atlas" room. We are going to make all the necessary about it. Really happy you appreciated your stay at the Riad. Stéphane.

This Riad was wonderful!! Our first visit to Marrakech and we could not have stayed in a better riad. Patrice is a superb host with excellent recommendations for tours and restaurants. We stayed in the new wing in a first floor suite with a bath to wonder at! Ibrahim looked after us - taking us to restaurants and attending to...

If you are coming to Marrakech you must stay in the medina (old town) to get the full experience. We spent a wonderful 10 nights here and could not fault it in any way. The staff were always so friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. We took the B+B option and no two breakfasts were the same -...

We stayed here for 4 nights, in a beautiful first floor room in the new building. It was quiet and atmospheric, with lovely touches, like incense burning and candles lit each evening. The staff are so very friendly, they offered unobtrusive service, especially Ibrahim, who was kind and extremely attentive. It is an adventure to find the Riad in the...

There are lots of other reviews of this property which will provide information regarding the rooms (smallish, but adequate), the food, the pool (not a pool really, but you could cool down in it), and the terrace. Positioned at the (dead)end of an alley, it is about 500 Metres walk through various cobbled alleyways, to the 1st. 'street'. From there...

This was our first trip to Marrakech and we would highly recommend this Riad. It is barely a ten minute walk to the souks and restaurants. The staff were a delight and the service was impeccable. Our room was charming with a comfy bed and hot shower. We were able to eat breakfast on the terrace in the sunshine and...

The King of Morocco was staying in Marrakech 5 minutes away from where we were in the Medina, and I understand that Niccole Kidman and Damian Lewis were also in town whilst filming a new movie, Queen of the Desert.
