Reviewed 22 August 2016

The manager Jean Jaques took a lot of time to talk and converse about the city, country, culture and history. It was very helpful to get a feeling of being welcome in the country. The typical food was excellent prepared by Neeza. We would definitely recommend the stay. It's easy to find from the main Square!

We have had such a great experience staying in this riad! Great location! Super close to the big square (although a bit difficult to find without a porter), beautiful rooms, and the friendliest staff you could ask for! Ayoub helped us with every request from taxi rides to tips of where to visit to requests for converters, etc. He is absolutely the best! We intended to only stay 3 nights but kept coming back since we felt right at home here. Oh and the dinner is to die for! Worth passing up the aggressive touts in the square for a quiet dinner at the riad with Ayoub. Highly recommend!

We had a great stay of one night there. The room was very nice, spa&cious and clean.
The traditional morrocoan breakfast was great.
The location is quiet, but yet near the main sights.
The staff members were very helpful, and even brought us to a restaurant in the evening.

Excellent service by Eunice and his team. They consistently went above and beyond in providing a wonderful stay at this beautiful Riad, conveniently located a few hundred meters from Jemaa el Fna in the center of the medina. Food was excellent as well. The entrance is unassuming and there is a dirt construction lot right next to the Riad but once you get inside it is absolutely beautiful. Only suggestion for improvement is to provide keys/locks to doors (they are old doors with a bar to push to close but no lock). Thank you for a wonderful experience and stay.

the Riad itself was nice and the location was good but the management and organisation was bad. They provided drinks and shieshas, along with organising trips for us but they charged exorbitant pricing for each item. They had no available list of prices and we did ask for most things but occasionally quite basic things were charged at extremely high rates. The shieshas which can be purchased for 2-3 euro were charged at 15! And all the organised trips they had were over the top pricing for basic travel. I liked the riad lay out but they need to organise and present pricing and trip lists better. I would not recommend this riad if you plan on relaxing in it for long, only if you use it as a base for travel. It left a very sour taste in our mouths when presented a huge bill for very basic services.

Thank you for your stay and your comment
However, I must clarify that we had you communicate all fares, drinks, dinner, shisha, extra. (actually we did not card except for meals)
Only you have not kept your account and you are surprised of the total,
everyone of your booking order in disorder without any control (maybe we have even forget to write things)
Price of chicha is identical on all Marrakech except that you get to enjoy it in your riad during your stay
give us a place where chicha is € 4/5?
I remain at your disposal for more information
Best regards
