Stayed here one night on our trip. Having stayed in another two riads in Marrakech city we expected the same standards of service and cleanliness here........ We were wrong! Check-in was hurried, no tea on arrival, not shown around, not told about spa, no WiFi code given, not told the breakfast arrangements for next day. Our room was massive, beautifully... More

The most stunning building with beautiful features in our 2 week visit – but unfortunately it achieved last place in our overall Riad experiences of our trip. Clearly visible is the lack of supervision/management and owner’s presence – for example water feature in the entrance without water. Staff friendly but very limited English. Limited information on arrival – no maps... More

We stayed for a week here and were welcomed by Yousra with a Moroccan tea which gave us time to absorb the fantastic decor, before being shown the spa, restaurant, terrace and our room - what a great way to be welcomed after a long journey! The room was huge, with a equally oversized granite bath and spectacularly decorated which... More

Comfortable bed, clean, huge spacious room. It was only missing a bin inside the room, and some information concerning the services of the hotel inside the room as well. When i checked in, I wasn't told anything, I had to ask for breakfast time, wifi service, service, etc. Staff is friendly though, specially the girl in the morning in charge... More

Tucked away in the old town, this place is a treasure. The room is spacious, the design and layout has a fabulous character.and the courtyard is something else. The marble fountain in the center of a stair shaped mosaic is just magnificent. The rooms are clean and the staff friendly, but make sure you know where the nearest ATM is... More

We were amazed coming in to the hotel, the courtyard and room were beautifully decorated. Fantastic design, full of character. Friendly welcome and the staff were lovely and helpful.

Visited here late last year and decided on this Riad as it had been suggested by a friend who had come across it when there themselves. The decor is lovely and the room we stayed in was extremely spacious, complete with a sofa and separate toilet/bathroom. It is also very clean, my only gripe was that it was quite dark... More

“be careful, there are only few rooms with window out to the street, the rest can be only to interior patio, so slightly darker”

“If you're interested in picking up some wifi then choose a room on the 1st floor (although it's not guaranteed). The decor can be quiet dark without natural light, try to get a room with windows.”
