If I can give a higher score than this, I would do it! Mohammed and the whole staff were so helpful and friendly. 1. A day before flying to Marrakech, Mohammed sent me an email with information about the riad and that he expects us. It was so nice and thoughtful! 2. When we arrived he welcomed us with mint...

Stayed here for a long weekend in Jan. We had a suite on the 2nd floor, nice size and a very firm bed which I liked. Breakfast was buffet style, omelet, toast, yogurts, fresh fruit, cold meats and the nicest fresh orange juice I've ever tasted. We ate at the riad on the first night, we didn't get what we... More

This is a typical Riad in the middle of the old city about 5 minutes walk from the main square. The decor is great and the staff friendly and helpful. We arrived in the early evening after the main square had been closed to traffic so they arranged a hand cart as part of the airport transfer. Following the hand... More

We spent 4 nights in the Riad and it was just perfect. Right in the heart of the Medina you turn down a side street into total peace and quiet- very much needed after a day walking the city!

We spent six days at this Riad and were extremely happy with the room and service we received. The Riad is in excellent condition and we found the images we saw prior to our visit were a true reflection of the Riad. The Riad is around the corner from the main square and the souks, yet we found the noise... More
