It is a very nice place near the medina and the souks. You start your day with a excellent breakfast on the sunny terrace. The staff, especially Ibrahim, gives you the necessary information you need to visit this particular city. You can't choose a better place to stay in Marrakech.

Me and my boyfriend booked 3 nights at first, but decided to stay for a whole week. We couldn't have chosen a better place! The Riad is located on a walking disance from the souks and the big square Jemaa el Fna. The riad is incradible beautiful, cosy and comfortable. Ibrahim made our stay in Marrakech absolutely wonderful. I highly...

My daughter (20s) and I (60s) have just returned from our first visit to Morocco. After a delayed flight to Marrakech, and a fairly unpleasant taxi ride we were whisked down dark alleys, on foot, by our taxi driver, with sinking hearts. He knocked at a large, old studded door, which was opened promptly by a delightful, English speaking young...

Not to be missed the dinner at the terrace. I did it for my kids and was fantastic. The management prepared dinner at the tent at a very reasonable price and better quality. It is my Riad at Marrakech

We were welcomed into the Riad late at night by a very attentive, English speaking, Ibrahim, after a very delayed flight. He provided us with mint tea and a warm, clean, beautifully decorated twin room on the ground floor. We were too late for restaurant food however Ibrahim ordered us in some delicious kebabs! We were new to Marrakech so...

Just back from 3 days in Marrakech. This Riad was just what we were looking for. Traditional, beautiful, cosy, clean,comfortable, friendly, easy location and great value. This lovely typically Moroccan Riad has its star: Ibrahim. A discreet but attentive young man who speaks very good English and French and who will try his very best to make your stay most...

This riad needs better attention. The minute you walk in, you feel immediately the lack of supervision and management. Towels (supposedly white!) NEED to be replaced. Cleanliness (everywhere: rooms, hall, kitchen) is very mediocre to say the least. Staff smoke in the riad!! There is a serious problem with bees in the terrace, makes it impossible to enjoy any meal...

Great Riad!!! Everything was awesome, and Ibrahim was the best host. Took really good care of us and helped with everything. Food was extremely good, super warm-full room and a cool terrace to chill out. Thanks for everything, Hope we meet again.

Lovely, traditionally decorated riad with such attention to detail which made it a really great home from home. Ibrahim's hospitality was amazing and attentive, making sure we were ok all the time, making us mint tea. He would even check venues to make sure we got there ok since taxi drivers are a little adverse to looking at maps resulting...

The location was off the main street down some small alleyways. Through a beautiful wooden brass studded door was an oasis of calm and wonderful typically Moroccan decoration and furnishings. Our room was spacious and spotlessly clean, attended to daily by very discreet friendly staff. The roof terrace provided a quiet, comfortable place to soak up the hot sun and...
