The riad is located in a one of the best neighbourhoods for exploring - close to the spice market and main souks, walking distance to the palaces, Koranic School and restaurants. The riad is positioned on a quiet side street in a safe neighbourhood.

The riad has been fully restored by the interior designer owner. We have a beautiful courtyard and roof terrace. The rooms are of generous proportions with two king sized beds and en-suite hammam-style bathrooms.

The ground floor has one double bedroom with en-suite, one additional wc, bhou (outside seating area) and kitchen. The first floor has a salon with fireplace, single bedroom and the master bedroom with en-suite off the balcony. The roof terrace has a tented seating area, a dining table for six, and two sun loungers.

Our manager, Mohammed, speaks English and French is on hand during your stay to help in any way - arranging airport collection and transfer to the riad, excursions to the mountains or other destinations (Mohammed is a qualified Berber trekking guide), assist with car hire, restaurant reservations etc.

Our housekeeper/cook, is available every day to prepare meals as required (at additional cost), clean and take general care of the riad.

Interaction with guests

Denise is based in London but is happy to help organise itineraries and give advice.

Despite being held up on our journey to Marrakesh, Mohamed was waiting for us with a welcome smile, and showed straight to this easy to fin Ryad. It is in the heart of the market, close to the action but very peaceful and quiet. Flowers in vases in the rooms and enough food to knock up a quick dinner (and a bottle of wine) Thoughtful touches! A house keeper came in daily and although we were self sufficient for food (3 year old with dietary difficulties), it was lovely to have the beds made and kitchen and bathrooms tidied! The house is clean and tidy with all facilities, we lit a fire in the evening, it wasn't really cold, but felt very cosy! All contacts were very easy, despite my own incompetence. I would definitely stay there again if visiting Marrakesh. Thank you Denise and team!

Die Riad ist, wie aus den Geschichten zu 1001 Nacht. Eine wirklich außerordentlich schöne und nach marokkanischen Stil gestaltete Unterkunft. Das Highlight ist neben den einzelnen Zimmern (Innenhof, Lounge, Wohnzimmer, 2 Schlafzimmer, die über eigene sehr schöne Bäder mit Badewanne bzw. Dusche verfügen) die Dachterrasse, über die man über die Dächer Marrakech blicken kann. Die Unterkunft an sich ist nicht weit (300m) entfernt vom Big Square und 150m vom Gewürzmarkt in einer ruhigen Seitengasse...somit hört man vom Trubel und Geschrei der Marktstände absolut gar nichts. Die House Keeper (Karima und Mohamed) sind überaus freundlich und hilfsbereit. Ein Muss für alle weiteren Gäste ist das Abend-/Mittag-Essen von Karima. Mit Abstand das Beste auf unsere ganzen Marokko Reise!
