the roof top terrace, the pool. The Hammam is available for guests at a small fee.
As with all riads and hotels in Marrakech the local authorities apply a 2.5 euro per person per day tourist tax on all visitors which is payable on arrival at the riad.
My two friends and I enjoyed our 4 night stay at this riad. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The assistance with finding a tour to the desert was appreciated, as was the ease with which the staff accommodated our request to stay an additional night.
Taking a dip in the plunge pool after wandering around the medina in the heat was awesome! Views from the rooftop veranda are nice. Room was on the small side, but perfect for our needs--there were plenty of spaces to lounge around throughout the riad. It was a welcome contrast to the noise and activity in the medina.
The bathroom floor tended to get soaked by the shower, but otherwise, I have no complaints about our experience. So glad that we chose to stay here!
We had a great holiday staying at Riad.
We arranged an airport transfer which I would definitely recommend, BUT (!) - when the taxi dropped us off we were led through the winding alleys to the Riad by another man, who we thought was part of the 15 Euro transfer package, however when we arrived he demanded payment. (We knew this was common in Marrakech, but when you've just landed and you think you're talking to the Riad's staff it's very confusing to argue with a man who won't let you in to your accommodation) Obviously we had only just landed so had no Dirham on us and only notes in euros and pounds. We thought he had rung the Riad's bell and we tried to explain that we had no money and why don't we go inside where someone could help clear up what was going on. We eventually paid him 10 euros to shut him up. Then we realised he had only pretended to ring the bell the first time, it wasn't until we paid him that he actually knocked.
We asked Abdel about it later and it seemed normally he meets guests from the taxi, but the taxi man hadn't called him. If you are led to the hotel by another man you should only pay them about 2 euros. We weren't impressed and were bummed out to have arranged something with the Riad and then been cheated out of more money, only 30 minutes after landing!
This was a really crap first experience of the city and our holiday mood.
However, when you get inside the Riad the place is so calm. The staff are very friendly, sweet and gentle, a complete refuge at times from the hustle and bustle in the town.
I would definitely stay here again, getting to see the same 3 faces each day made it feel really homely and safe. The food is great as well! We had the chicken one evening and was probably the best local dish we had.
The Riad isn't licenced to sell alcohol, but you can buy some at the supermarket and put it in their fridges to chill if needed. Definitely stock up on booze at the start so you don't need to make the long supermarket walk too often!
Heather, I am sorry to hear of your arrival ordeal BUT I assure you this had nothing to do with the riad!!! My colleague Abdel always walks to the square to collect our guests himself once the driver has phoned him to say he is arriving at the square (cars cannot enter any further into the Medina). The driver did not call and unfortunately some man obviously took advantage claiming to know the riad and took you there. We did not arrange for this man to meet you nor do we know him! We certainly did not okay for him to be paid any money by yourselves. Thankfully we were able to make your stay an enjoyable one once at the riad. The sale and consumption of alcohol within the Medina is not allowed by the local authorities. You can buy and consume it in the New Town not far away.
A lovely and peaceful riad in a great location. Very welcoming service and a delicious breakfast!
Marrakech was an experience Linda and I will never forget. We always felt on edge, however our welcome was always the same - relaxed, positive, pleasant and a welcome haven only minutes from the unique electricity of Jemaa El Fna.
Mohammed, Abdel and the wonderful ladies who quietly made the beautiful fresh, homemade breakfasts and kept the place so comfortable are a well-oiled machine.
Make no mistake, every time you thread your way through the questionable alleyways back to the Riad you will wonder whether you have made the right decision, however as soon as you open the door you know you did.
Thanks, Leila for putting together such a quality experience of Marrakech.
Greetings from Denis and Linda from Bonnie Scotland.
A beautiful place to relax indeed ! A small haven of calm hidden in the maze of the Medina! Excellent location, very quiet and clean! Lovely staff, welcoming, caring, attentive and very helpful! We loved our stay in Marrakech! Yummy breakfast in the morning served outdoors or inside depending on the weather ! Small and cosy bedroom with everything you need for a short stay. Safe airport transfer arranged. Abdel, the manager, also arranged a excursion for us and we absolutely loved it ! We would definitely recommend it !
We spent two days at the riad. The location is good as it is right in the middle of the Medina. However, it is quite hard to locate especially at night time and there are dodgy people walking around. It is best to remember the route back carefully.
We enjoyed our stay very much. They have staff taking us right at the airport. The home keeper and all staff are really nice. When we asked for an early breakfast they also arranged perfectly. They are all really helpful and one of the nicest we met in Marrakech. We had one dinner at the Riad. It was really delicious and up to restaurant standard, plus you don't need to walk around, just stay in and enjoy. Highly recommend spending one night in!
One of the best B&B! Thanks to all the staff.
Une très belle adresse au cœur de la Médina. Un accueil discret et prévenant.
Une décoration superbe. L'endroit idéal pour passer quelques jours au soleil.

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!
