My aunt and myself had a wonderful stay in this delightful and charming raid.
It all went very smoothly right from the beginning when we were picked up by the transport Laurent had arranged.
The Riad was beautiful and cozy. It was well tucked away from the busy souks but in an ideal location for getting to all main attractions. (Less than 5mins to the square)
On our first day Laurent showed us through the medina and helped us get our bearings. He was there to offer helpful advice and suggestions. The maid also provided us with lovely breakfasts on the roof terrace as well as an authentic moroccan meal on our last night. The food was incredible!!!!!
The maid also kept the place spotless and although she couldn't speak English was very bubbly and friendly.
I have nothing but great things to say about this raid and the owner. I would strongly advise you stop looking and to book this little gem immediately!! Such good value for money! Thank you Laurent for making our stay unforgettable.
A gem in the hart of Medina. Beautiful cozy house, with a great Host, Laurent, which make
My stay so Enjoyable! The house have a perfect comfort, spotless, with all the beauty of a traditional marrakesh home.
breakfast was served every morning by Bouchra with her perfect and tender attention, which make you feel Just like home. Totally
Recommended and no
Doubt to stay at laurent's home next time.
We had an amazing stay at Laurent's apartment, although we never met him. Great location really close to the big square, lovely roof terrace and nicely decorated. We had a transfer from the airport organised for us which was very useful. The best part about staying here was definitely Bouchera, she made sure it was always tidy, prepared a delicious breakfast every day and made us dinner one night after we went with her to the market. Completely recommend anyone to stay here.
We stayed for 2 nights and there were positives and negatives to the Riad. Most of the reviews mentioned Laurent being able to give helpful advice about Marrakech but sadly we never met him so didn't benefit from this. The maid is very nice and we had two lovely breakfasts, but she doesn't speak English. We were told a taxi had been organised to collect us from the airport, but this never materialised so we had to call them again when we arrived.
In terms of the Riad, the bathroom was beautiful, and the room was clean but small. I'm not sure I agree with the description of it as a 'suite' as the seating area is separate to the room and for joint use. The location is good being just a few minutes from the main square.
Overall, I felt the room was a little overpriced for what you got, and I probably wouldn't stay here again.
Sorry not to be there during this time, but I didn't know that I was also rent with the room. As an international consultant I will charge more my time spent . Concerning the driver , he was waiting for you but somebody called Rebecca came to him . He drove her to my house . It was a misunderstanding , but do not forget that Morocco is a french and arabic speaking language. When I go to England I speak english
Concerning the bedroom and the price you paid, the description and pictures has been made by AirbnB photographer and not by me. I am sorry to say that it is a suite instead of a small apartment that you enjoyed completely .That is true that you may be don't know riads in Morocco, Rooms are small. If you want a nice suite there is nice hotel like Mamounia where you will pay at least 500€ the suite or other riads, where the suite is around 300€ the night instead of 60€.
I am happy that you will not come and stay again
My boyfriend and I stayed in the Riad for two nights. We were met at the airport by Hassan with no problems. The house is lovely and very spacious. We never met Laurent but the Maid took very good care of us and prepared a lovely breakfast each morning on the roof top terrace.
The house is a 5 minute walk to the big main square but is still very quiet as it's tucked away down a lane.
I would highly recommend it!
Such an amazing place to stay. Laurent was so welcoming and happy to help out with things to do around he city. The accommodation itself was amazing plus it was right in the middle of the city and 10mins walk to the markets and amazing restaurants. When I go back to marrakesh I will definitely stay here again just for the rooftop terrace itself.
We were met by arrangement at the airport and brought to this lovely riad. From the riad's roof terrace we had views over the city of sun risings and sunsets, of the Koutoubia Mosque and the snow covered Atlas Mountains. Situated in the Medina and close to Djemaa El Fna and also very close to Place des Ferblantiers where petits taxis were easily available.
Our accommodation was both clean and comfortable, we were made to feel very welcome and were well looked after throughout. We were served an excellent breakfast on the terrace daily and by arrangement had three Moroccan style dinners cooked for us, which were most enjoyable and beautifully presented.
We felt that by staying in the riad we had a much closer connection with Marrakesh than had we stayed in a hotel. Thank you to Bouchera for looking after us so well (Laurent was visiting family for Christmas, he had been excellent in arranging all the logistics beforehand).
We thoroughly enjoyed out stay.
