This is a amazing property. Smack in the middle of the Medina geographically, only minutes walk to any sites and literally on the doorstep of the souks. Despite that it is quiet and secluded. Well presented, private, comfortable.
Aleks was one of the most responsive hosts I've used on Airbnb and his representatives (Nadia & Hassan) were attentive, generous and helpful. We also used their airport transfer service which was on time and professional.
The roof terrace was even nicer than it appears in photos, but views are limited as it isn't particularly high.
A delightful, peaceful and private riad.
A bit complicate to acceed in the Riad but good Riad , Very small but made with a lot of Elegance and détails
Very nice and charming riad ! Very well located. Ideal for families with two kids. Nadia and Hassan are wonderful hosts. They will do the best for your trip being unforgettable.
Five nights with my two daughters at the start of a Christmas New Years holiday in Morocco. Lovely lay out of the riad with two distinct bedrooms. Breakfast at the nearby associated riad was superb. Nadia and Hassan were helpful on anything that we might have needed. Quiet location with peaceful roof deck. Right in center of the action but still private and calm.
Riad Le Petit Palais ist a comfortable, quiet and charming location close to the main square and the souks. Nadia and Hassan are wonderful, helpful people and made our stay as comfortable as possible. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a cosy place to stay in Marrakech.
Aleks's Riad is fantastic and is close to everything in the Medina. I would definitely stay here again if I was in Marrakech.
We just returned from Morocco and our stay at Petit Palais was one of our highlights of the trip. It is a quiet sanctuary in the craziness of Marrakech while still being extremely close to the excitement of Jemmna el Fna. Hassan met us upon arrival (we arranged taxi service from the station with the riad and would highly suggest you do the same) and showed us to the beautiful riad. The place is clean and charming and perfect for 2-4 people. It was just 2 of us and we liked the privacy very much. Hassan arranged breakfast for us at a nearby riad. It was ready at whatever time we wanted and I would suggest using this service as well unless you would like to make your own.
I would suggest this place to any traveler that is adventurous and would like to feel as though Marrakech is their home.
We had a most enjoyable stay at Riad Le Petit Palais in Marrakech. Nadia and Hassan could not have been more helpful. The riad itself is exactly as it looks in the pictures. It is clean, comfortable and in an excellent location. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a nice cosy place to stay in Marrakech.
Alek's team was very friendly and effective. They made the stay a very pleasant one.
The Riad is spacious and calm, and it provides a nice break from the excitement of the city.
I stayed in Marrakech with three other colleagues following a work trip in Rabat. We booked Aleks's place late, but he made every effort to coordinate with us -- and arranged a pick-up from the train station to Jemaa al Fna. If you visit, take him up on this offer -- it was significantly better than dealing with the hassle of taxi drivers.
Both Nadia and Ahmed arranged our check-in and check-out, and stopped by to answer any questions. They provided wonderful assistance and made our stay as comfortable as possible.
As for the location, it can't be beat! It's located just a short five-minute walk away from Jemaa al Fna, and situated in quiet side street, inaccessible by car.
The apartment itself was spotless, spacious and comfortable. The AC worked well, as did all of the plumbing. Aleks has a great decorative eye, giving the home a real sense of character. The doors, in particular, are works of art!
Overall, my colleagues and I were very pleased with our stay. Should I return to Marrakech, I will make every effort to stay here.
Shukran jazillan ya Aleks, Nadia and Ahmed!
