My kids and I stayed at this Riad for 5 days mid April. The Riad is very conveniently located near enough to the Medina (5 minutes walk) but also very close to transport links and a cash point. The Riad itself is very nicely decorated and comfortable. The staff are amazing, Ishmail, Mohamed and Hassan to name a few, go...

Loved it all! Great place. The manager Ismail is incredibly nice and helpful. The rooms are clean, the location is in walking distance to an amazing market with cobras, monkeys, dancers and signers. I'm heading toward the desert and Ismail is helping me book a remarkable place he recommends.

I recently visited this Riad for a birthday trip and was pleasently surprised. We arrived quite late in the evening but the staff were very friendly and welcoming. The Riad itself is beautiful and the balcony has a wonderful sunset view in the evenings where we could enjoy a drink or two that we had bought from duty free. Additionally,...

Location is great - right in the heart of everything. Room for four accommodated four of us - queen bed plus two single beds. The negatives: Despite many communications in advance with ownership,...

This is a smallish hotel in the traditional riad style, so it gives a good feel for what life must have been like for the well-to-do of Marrakech in years gone by. The rooms are plushly furnished, with a four poster bed in the superior room we stayed in. As has been mentioned by others, Mohammed and his staff here...

Perfect location, about 7min walk to main square. Rooms were nice and the facilities all really good. Really got a good taste of morroco by staying here as they have themed the hotel with the traditional style very well. They have a lovely roof terrace where me and friends would relax in the evenings where they would provide tea and...
