Beautiful riad with wonderfully friendly staff. Abdel was great from the moment we booked our room and helped to arrange an airport pickup and dinner the evening we arrived, which was a welcome relief after traveling from Singapore to London and London to Marrakech within a 24-hour period. We stayed in the Syrius room, which was clean and spacious -... More

We stayed here for three nights on a flying visit to Marrkech, my third visit to the city. Abdel, the manager was incredibly helpful, emailing information on and also arranging transfers, as well as supper for our first night as we landed in the evening. It was very tasty.

What a wonderful five nights my partner and I spent here. Despite turning up late at night we were greeted in a very friendly and welcoming manner. The manner in which we were treated throughout our stay was absolutely top-notch. We were offered advice on language, places to visit, and given reasonable rates on excursions. Nothing was too much trouble... More
