We booked this riad mainly due to the pool (that's why we spent a bit more), which could however not be used due to renovation works. The rooftop terrace was nice though and was good to relax in the sun. Staff was very friendly and helpful too. The riad is vey hard to find and it would be useful if... More

The stuff are very friendly, and will constantly go out of their way offering tips on where to go, delivering water, and just generally being nice. Our room was a huge letdown though. People in the courtyard had a clear view of the toilet and shower in our room, with no shower curtain and only a red stained window (which... More

We arrived here from the airport in a pre booked taxi and got collected from the road.This Riad is fine. It's authentic and the roof terraces give you a view over the city. Staff are friendly and helpful. The breakfast was the same everyday but easy to eat and the yoghurt was delicious. Our room was fine and cleaned daily.... More

We were enchanted by the lovely pictures and the good price offer on a popular booking site, and somehow we were blind to the bad reviews about this place which we really regret now. We were picked up at the airport and taken to a totally different place. They didn't say anything, they were just hoping we would be total... More

On the strength of reviews elsewhere we booked 4 nights here . Allow at least 24 hours to learn the route to and from the main Jemaa al Fna square. The map on the back of the Riad's card is pure fiction. It's 20 minutes through the souks with 4 crucial junctions to memorise. This is a problem because you... More

We choose a riad to get an authentic experience of accommodation in the Medina and were not disappointed. The Riad consists of two properties that have been converted into one. We booked through "Booking.com" which offered a limited choice of rooms and ours could be describe as "shabby chic" it had the facilities as described but there were rooms that... More

Where to start. We booked this riad after looking at reviews on here, which were glowing. Our experience was quite different. The place is run by 'boys'. The rooms were very small. The riad very noisy-had to ask staff to turn their music down 3 times. Breakfast was the same every day. Either unripe fruit and bread, or rotten fruit.... More

This was our first stop off on our honeymoon and we loved it! The room was beautiful, the pool area cool and relaxing (and beautifully scented with jasmine and orange tress) and the food (both breakfasts and dinner) was amazing. Nothing was too much trouble - we needed to book a coach to Agadir and were given really clear instructions... More

This is a lovely little place to stay, all the rooms are bright and clean and come with Air Con which is lovely after a day of trekking around.
