Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The Riad was very nice, quiet and clean. After the messy moments in the streets of Marrakech it was a benefaction to turn back into the Riad - it felt like being in a oasis of peace.
    The room was a little bit dark and cool but this has to do with the construction of the building and the fact that it was January.
    The room was nice, the water warm and the bed was very comfortable!
    Youssef the housekeeper and the women whose name I don't know where very friendly and helpful!
    The breakfast was basic but one of the best I had in Morocco (in other Riads) and I loved to eat it in the sunshine on the terace on the top of the roof!
    I really recommend this lovely place! Enjoy it in case you are going to visit it! :)

  • We stayed with our friends in the riad! I totally agree with Justin!
    It was absolutely the perfect location! Only a 5 min walk to the djemaa el fna!! The riad is absolutely beautiful and such a great space for relaxing. The rooms were exactly as depicted on the website. We also loved Youssef and Aisha. They we're so friendly and welcoming. The breakfest (on the roof) was delicious!! Definitely also we again would stay here if we are ever come back to Marrakesh.

  • The riad is perfectly located near the best hotspots in Marrakesh. We hat a great time and Yousef was very kind and friendly. The rooms are very clean and the rooftop is just breathtaking.

  • Lovely riad. Well located and welcoming staff. A word of warning, wait until you receive specific instructions on how to find it. (website hidden) maps has it placed on the other side of the medina.

  • The Riad is a beautiful place in the middle of the Medina. The rooms are tidy, comfortable and spacious. The pool is excellent for getting a little refreshment after hours of sightseeing and shopping. Yussuf and his helping ladies were very friendly and the breakfast simple but satisfying. We can definitely recommend this place.

    There are only two things that need improving: the W-LAN only works in some spots of the rooms.
    For our departure we booked an airport transfer, which turned out to be a normal taxi with 4 guest seats. Being a group of 5 with a lot of luggage, we were not happy at all. If we wanted a normal taxi, we could have gotten one by ourselves. The price was therefore not justified. Also, we know that it is usual in Maroc to overload the taxis, which is the reason, why we booked an alternative transfer.

    Despite this little chagrin at the end, we had a terrific stay. :-)

  • Très bien situé, à deux pas de la place Jemaa el na, mais au calme.
    Belle terrasse appréciée au retour d'une journée dans Marrakech !

  • Pasamos unos días excelentes en Marrakech. El riad esta muy bien ubicado. Los 5 minutos que refieren son ciertos, o incluso menos!. Es fácil llegar y moverse por puntos estratégicos.
    Nuestra habitación nos encantó. Nos esperaron con la calefacción encendida, con todo muy limpio y ordenado. El desayuno riquísimo y la decoración muy linda. Está muy bien cuidado.
    Si bien no conocimos personalmente a Charlotte, mantuvimos contacto con Youssef en todo momento. El nos enseñó personalmente el camino a la plaza y estuvo atento a cada una de nuestras consultas y/o solicitudes.
    Volveríamos al mismo riad y sin duda lo recomendamos. Hay que tener cuidado con el tráfico de bicicletas y motos para llegar... pero es un cuidado transversal a toda la ciudad!!
    Estamos muy agradecidos por la experiencia.

  • Top séjour! Accueil chaleureux, tout impeccable. Petit déjeuner simple et parfait.
    Le Riad est admirablement situé.

  • bellissimo riad, centrale.. per me è stata la prima esperienza fatta oltre Europa ed è stata positiva.. consiglio anche il corso di cucina che propongono molto interessante perchè vi permette di fare un giro con la cuoca nel mercato ed acquistare il cibo da cucinare. consiglio vivamente.. all'interno del riad siete in un oasi di pace e tranquillità.

  • Séjour agréable. Riad simple et propre. Un peu déçu par rapport aux photos en ligne. Idéalement situé (5 mn à peine de la Place) ce qui est fort appréciable (et pour moi le plus important) pour faire des pauses ou déposer ses emplettes. Très calme. Le petit déjeuner est simple (café ou thé, quelques fruits, 1 galette et morceaux de pain).
    Pour résumé, RIAD simple, ultra central avec in fine un bon rapprot qualité-prix. A recommander dans cette gamme de budget.

J'habite à Lyon en France où je profite tous les jours du typique et vivant quartier du Vieux Lyon. J'aime voyager, notamment au Maroc dans le Riad de ma famille : un havre de paix dans la superbe ville de Marrakech où nous recevons des touristes du monde entier, accueillis chaleureusement par le personnel du Riad.
