Stayed here with our 3 teenage daughters in early April - a real find. All the staff were lovely and very welcoming and helpful. Breakfasts served on the roof terrace were fabulous. Recommendations for restaurants and tour guides were spot on. An ideal base from which to explore the medina. Only 10 minute walk to Jemaa El Fnaa, assuming you...

We had read about this Riad in the Guardian and it really lived up to expectations. Only minutes from the souk yet calm and tranquil. Our room was simple but very comfortable and the Rose petals on arrival were a lovely touch. The transfer from the airport was smooth, and Bachir and Ahmed were both so welcoming and helpful. They...

We stayed here as a family of 4 at the end of January for 4 nights. Spotted it from a recent review in the Guardian and we were very happy with our choice. Very quiet spot amidst the chaos of the Medina steets. Everything as regards the arrangements went very smoothly, pickup from airport, as well as the initial introduction...

For a first time trip to Marrakech this is the perfect riad to stay in. We were picked up from the airport and given a detailed map of the area and suggestions of places to eat from Ahmed. He was happy to answer any questions we had for him and really went out of his way to help us. The...

Stayed here for 3 nites in December 2014. It is truly a lovely place and I would certainly recommend it to my family and friends! The breakfast was great and served on the outside terrace by such a nice staff. Tours arranged by the managers were excellent - local guides and a desert tour both. Airport transport arranged and went...

I stayed here with my girlfriend for 2 nights and it was a great place in a central location, about 10 or 15 minutes away from the Jemaa el-Fnaa. We didn't eat dinner, but the breakfast was good - great coffee and bread! We'd stay here again and definitely recommend it! Really good price for what you get.

The riad is beautiful and everything we hoped for. Rooms are built around a pretty courtyard with plants and flowers and a lovely (small) pool scattered with rose petals. Our transfer from the airport was seamless and didn't take long (20 mins) and we were welcomed by Bachir who sat us down with mint tea and a map and explained...

I well enjoyed the stay in the Riad because of the central location in the old part of Marrakech, the smiling hospitality of the staff, the color of the swimming pool in the courtyard, the fornitures, the fantastic and tasting breakfast on the roof terrace, the warm welcome given by the room colors and a very interesting price.

It was perfect! Just inside of the souk, near everything. Great location, we could go walking to the restaurants, the Medersa, the hammams, the Jemaa El Fna, everywhere! We only took a cab to go to the train station, which was not inside of the Medina, but it took us only a few minutes and cost about 50dh. It was...

Me and partner picked this riad as it was an ideal location in terms of getting to souks/ medina and a central location to catch a cab. We stayed for a week in a double room in the riad. Free shuttle service provided also which was fantastic. The riad itself amongst many others Riads close by is a haven for...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
At the beginning there were two friends, Barbara and Elizabeth, and the charm of the Red Town. In an afternoon, walking in a quiet part of the Medina, called Riad Laarouss, close to Ben Youssef Mosque, they saw an old woman with a tattoo on her chin, standing in the street door. The woman was making great gestures to invite them into her house, which seemed very poor. In a corner of the courtyard, there were gathered together a lot of furniture and fittings, as waiting for moving. In fact the old woman said to the girls that the house has become too small for her family and she would like they be the new owners. According to the traditional Moroccan hospitality, the old woman offered them mint tea and cakes. She also introduced to them the last born in the family, Idris, a few-months baby, and Mustafà, a gentle and wise man who was living like a Hermit in his ... more   less
