This Riad is set around two atria, each with a pool. We stayed for a week in a ground floor double room in the newer part. In November we had some sunshine and some really chilly wet weather. The room had independently controlled heating/cooling so was always comfortable. The newer atrium is smaller so any conversation at a normal speaking... More

The Riad sent us a car and met us to guide us through the maze of the medina! A bit daunting at first but we really did find our way in and out very easily after that! We were greeted by the manager Meriam with Moroccan tea and shown around the riad which is a beautiful old house built around... More

We stayed for 2 nights at the Riad in late November 2016, it's a great location and facility. As you walk through the little cobblestone streets you can not imagine you will walk into this little piece of heaven. It's a very cosy Riad with a beautiful inner courtyard. The staff is amazingly helpful and friends, they can provide great... More

We stayed in this awesome Riad over a long weekend in November. The service was excellent and the location couldn't have been better. As this was at the very end of a burrow of alleys it was extremely quiet and the perfect resting spot in a city of constant buzz. The room was a perfect size for a couple, we... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Marrakech and staying in this lovely raid made it so much better. We were within walking distance of the centre were the noise, sights and food are unbelievable.

Stayed for 4 nights. Booked a transfer from the airport to the hotel with the Riad. Met at the drop off point by Abdul from the hotel who then took us down some winding alleyways in the dark which my wife found a bit scary!

This riad was recommended to us by our travel agent when we booked , as we didn't fancy staying in an impersonal Western-style hotel. We read all the reviews, so were really looking forward to staying here - & it hasn't disappointed in any way. It was a little nerve-wracking arriving in the dark & our airport transfer driver had...

This riad is an oasis of calm and luxury in the medina. We stayed two nights. We made our way here from the airport on our own, and the location is exactly where Google Maps indicates, so it was easy to follow the maze through the medina. It's at the dead end of an alley, and when you get there... More

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights while visiting Marrakech in September. The Riad is beautiful and the staff are wonderfully helpful. Abdul was particularly attentive and made every effort to make sure we were comfortable. I wouldn't want to try and find the place myself as the Medina is such a warren of streets, but Abdul met...
