My friend and I were traveling to Marrakech for the first time and everything about our stay was pleasant! From the beginning, Leila and her staff were communicating with us and helping us plan an itinerary and book excursions at our request. We arranged a taxi from the airport (which I would recommend for your first night into the city if you get in late and haven't been before because it can be overwhelming and locals try to "show you the way" to get a tip). Our house manager got us from the taxi and brought our bags up, served us hot tea ("Berber whiskey") at our arrival and helped us get food at a late hour after most restaurants had closed for the night. They offer a great breakfast option for only $4 a day (worth it) and is lovely to eat on the beautiful terrace. This is a wonderful escape from a busy city, but still close to everything you'd need. Be sure to communicate your needs early on and clearly with staff (check in/out times, breakfast time, taxi arrangement and money) to avoid communication error and that someone is on hand to assist you. Someone isn't at the riad 24/7, only specific times during the day. Also cleaning fees add up, so ask about pricing to avoid being charged a lot extra for maps, water, etc. Our room was also comfortable and clean! Highly recommend!
Very nice Riad! Perfect location in the heart of the Medina. Easy to find thanks to excellent desciption by host. Delicious breakfast served on the beautiful roof top in the morning.
There was only one downside to me: the mattress was very uncomfortable. Hard and "uneven".
We had an amazing stay at the riad and hope to visit it again soon. We would like to thank the whole team for their help and Rachida for her hospitality, kindness and amazing breakfast! Five stars ;-)
Riad bien situé, au cœur des souks, dans un coin moins touristique. (bravo pour les indications tres claires qui nous ont permis de retrouver le riad sans probleme!)
Petit et mignon, fidèle aux photos. La chambre etait fraiche (pas besoin de climatiseur) malgré les 40 degrés ambiants. Rachida a été adorable (très bon petit dej!) et nous a même changé le matelas qui n'etait pas à notre goût pour notre 2e nuit. Petit bémol cependant pour les abeilles sur la terrasse. Celle-ci est très agréable le soir mais il ne nous a pas été possible de prendre notre petit-dej dessus à cause des nombreuses abeilles.
Globalement, chouette expérience. Je recommande
We would like to thank Leila and her team for the great time we spent at the Riad. Simple but very clean rooms with a lot of charm. In general a very familiar surrounding. Big thank you to Dila&Rachida! Lovely and and helpful at anytime. Not to forget the amazing rooftop terrasse. Locationwise, it is in the very heart of the Medina, very authentic feeling. However at night a bit scary when you don't know the streets. All in all i can highly recommend it.
Best riad ever! Very lovely people, beautiful place, great location and everyone is incredibely helpful. We really really enjoyed our stay here! Hope we can visit again very soon!

About the Host, Leila
I'm Leah originally from Australia I lived for 14 years in Florence, Italy where I still have active contacts. For the past 2 years I have lived in Marrakech, Morocco a vibrant town pulsating in exotic sounds and sites. I love living here; the people, the food, the landscape, the religion, the architecture and the music...
Travel expands our life experience, paradoxically encountering people and places out of our daily routines and comfort zones increases understanding of ourselves and those close to us...
Marrakech is music to the ears!
