The past five star reviews that have been written about Riad Habib and about Pierre, Aminah, Oonza and Abdul Latif are all true. We were taken such good care of, helped and advised where necessary. This was our first visit to Morocco. Pierre kindly took us around the Old Madina on our first morning to help us to get about and find our way back to the Riad through the winding streets. Our room was very "Moroccan" with a comfortable bed and plenty of space in the room, and with an en-suite. I have a problem with my spine so there were times when I needed to just rest and not go out. We often met other holidaymakers in the Riad's sitting room, and we would sit around drinking mint tea and discussing all manner of things. We tried our hand at the giant solitaire game made from onyx and competed against each other to see who could complete the board in the fastest time! The breakfasts were fabulous and plentiful. On the first morning my husband had mentioned to Oonza that I like boiled eggs for breakfast, and by the time I arrived at my table, there were the boiled eggs - and they were there every day - before I could say that I really didn't need them as the breakfasts were so delicious. It's very difficult to add anything extra after all the other marvellous reviews made by other satisfied visitors to this Riad. The staff here treat you like family and in return we were very sad to leave and goodbyes were difficult. We felt like we were leaving family behind.

Room tip: If you can't manage stairs, there is a beautiful room on the ground floor but you will need to ask for it.

the hotel is based in the old town (medina). it is just a stones throw from the market (souks) & also close by is the famous square (place duemaa el fna). as for the hotel it is very nice with a warm and friendly welcome. when you close the door and enter you forget about the madness and noise. with its traditional style and oasis like center garden you can relax with ease. the room we stayed in was called yasmena simple and traditional furniture. the staff are only to pleased to help. a must is to take the views from the roof . we can recamend to ask some one to show you the way the 1st time as the lanes are easy to lose your way (tip will be expected, usually around £2).

Our first time in Marrakesh and the taxi dropped us at a road junction and dropped our cases into a large wheelbarrow. The address of the Riad was handed to the two youthful owners of the wheelbarrow and of we marched down the lanes of the Medina. We thought it was a long walk that first night, especially as my wife has walking difficulties. No-one mentioned that no taxis can get into the Medina.
We finally arrived at the Riad and were greeted with Mint Tea and a ground floor room, by now it was dark and we had no idea that we were actually sitting in an outer court fully open to the cold night air.
The room was not very large but it was comfy.
Next morning we woke to a good breakfast including a huge omelette, the following mornings we changed this to boiled eggs, which happens to be our fav.
Walking round the Medina was slow as it is all cobbled streets (sorry lanes/alleys).
The people were very friendly throughout our visit and I believe that we will return in the future. We will also stay in the Medina rather than the city.
Worth a mention here is the Cafe Arabe, very good food and service is 5 star, by the way they also have vodka plus a selection of other spirits but these are only available in the rear part of the hotel.
On a sad note we did have our cases opened AFTER drop-off in Marrakesh airport and some personnel items were taken, however they did a good job of the repacking, all cloths being folded neatly.

The welcoming atmosphere was amazing. The staff are so lovely specially Abdul Latif bless his heart. we got the chance to meet the owner who also was nice and friendly. The place is so peaceful and great location.
The only thing I would like to add is the lack of staffing as our room was not cleanned and the towers were not change during the three nights stay. I left early but my friend stayed and couldn't have breakfast the last day as when she wake up she couldn't find anyone and left like that to the airport.

A beautiful Riad in the centre of Marrakech, close to the souks and a short walk to the main square. A quiet haven in the middle of a mad city.
We arranged to be collected from the airport and were guided to the Riad - we arrived around 9pm and would not have found it on our own, it's a complete maze!
Our room was lovely and Amina and her team did everything to make our stay enjoyable, we had an evening meal which was delicious and she also arranged a trip to Essouaria for us (much calmer than Marrakech but a long journey for a day trip).
We also had a day trip to the Atlas mountains which was absolutely fantastic and included lunch in a small Berber village (Booked through Morocco Attractive Tours)
The Riad has a lovely roof terrace, although even in October it was a bit hot to sit out for very long, the courtyard is gorgeous with lovely planting and a banana tree and was a delightful space to relax in.
Nothing was too much trouble for Amina and her team, the room was comfortable and beautifully decorated.
A very reasonably priced Riad but definitely not 'budget' - Highly recommended!

Room tip: Room on the ground floor is cooler
