Good location and superb staff! Really warming, welcoming and helpful! This is what makes your trip different from others, they let us enjoy and relax. They took care of everything! The Riad is very well conserved, I'm an architect and loved the place. Very good taste in decoration, great balance between tradicional moroccan and modern. Definetely recommend it!

I was so very much surprised with what i saw when we came in to this riad! it is much better than on pics and you can really feel the authentic atmospheric there. The roof terrace is amazing! I miss that evenings there so much.. The only minus was the wifi, that didn't work when we stayed there (2 days).

God, did I love this Riad! Simply perfect. We had the cheapest room category and the room was amazing in the small annex courtyard that opened a year ago (which I thought was even more beautiful than the main court). The room had a smart layout and furnishing (e.g. 2 power sockets on each side of the bed, beautiful romantic... More

We could not believe what we saw when we arrived into this Riad. This is a restored old palace and the rooms and hotel facilities could not be more beautiful. The place smells delicious and the rooms and towels and beds all have scents and aromas. The people that work here make all their effort to please you, they bake... More

This was the best riad we stayed at during our trip in Morocco. It is beautiful, and the staff is just amazing, they helped us with everything from taxis to train tickets and guides (in spanish). We also had our breakfast and dinner here because we loved their food so much.

The riad is very clean, beautiful and recommended. We booked two nights and enjoyed our time there. The riad is authentic and the stuff were very kind. The only thing you need to take in account is the location - the riad is deep inside the medina, so you can't arrive to the riad door by car, so there is... More
