Interaction with Guests
You can join us at any time, and Bahia will welcome you to the riad. She's been looking after it for 13 years and is now part of the family. She'll be there to help you, and you won't believe her kindness.
The Bab Aylen area is one of the oldest in Marrakech. So far ignored by the tourists, it's still peopled by local craftsmen and merchants.
It's really close to the Souks, to Bab El Khemis (Marrakech's flea market), and it's only a 15 minutes walk from Jemaa-el-Fna square, which makes it's the perfect place from which to discover the hidden secrets of the true Medina.
Getting there by car is quite easy: 50 yards away from the house is a small square planted with trees which can be used as a parking lot for your vehicle should you have one, and where cabs can take you to or wait for you from.
A taxi that knows the riad well can wait for you at the airport – which is the option we strongly advise you to take.
