We spent 2 nights in Riad Princesse du desert in November and they were our favorite 2 nights in Morocco. Khadijah, Simo, and everyone else we met were exceptionally accommodating and kind. The riad is impeccably clean and quiet, despite being in the bustling Medina. It was a short walk to Jemaa El Fna and the Kotoubia Mosque as well....

We spent four nights at La Princesse du desert at the end of a three week tour of Morocco and were delighted with the welcome we received. It’s a small riad, tucked away at the end of a long, winding laneway in the medina but not really hard to find once you’ve been shown the way, although it is quite...

We stayed for 2 nights here this week, and its a terrific place to stay. It is a bit inside the medina, but they have a porter who can transport your bags from Bab Laksour. Easy walking distance to the Square. Superb service by Simo, Khadija, and others. They are wonderfully attentive to all guest needs, and go out of...

The riad is located some distance from the entrance of the medina. However, it is quite easy to get use to the walking distance especially to the Jemaa El Fna after a few times. The room is very comfortable especially during the winter. Plenty of hot water for shower and they provide nice fragrant lemongrass shower gel. I guess the...

We enjoyed 3 nights in this wonderful riad. It is beautifully decorated, clean and with very friendly staff who do all they can to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. The narrow streets leading up to the riad are very daunting as you think you will never navigate your way around them but Yusuf gave us excellent instructions and we...

My friend and I had an excellent time with this hotel. Although it is hidding itself in narrow alley in Medina, it is just 10 minutes walk from the main square. The staff working there are very warm and helpful, in particular Simon and Abdubal. Don't miss the opportunity of staying in a traditional Morocco house with all elegant decoration...

This riad was lovely and all the staff were so friendly and helpful. So quiet once you got inside, the room was gorgeous and very clean. The breakfasts were delightful and dinner on the terrace was delicious. Definitely to be recommended. Would definitely recommend a hammam

We could not have enjoyed our stay in this riad more - It was our favourite place in all of Morocco, and was spacious and luxurious. We were welcomed by Mustafa, who took the time to show us how to reach the square, and the best place to eat. Simo was always friendly, cheerful and helpful, as were the beautiful...

We were part of a group of 4 couples that stayed at this riad for 4 nights. The staff at this riad made it a great place to stay. They were very helpful in anything we asked for. The breakfast served every morning was very good. This riad offers cooking classes, which we did not take but we did have...

We met Samira on our way down the derb and she personally escorted to the riad. The door opened and we were in the luxurious central courtyard with traditional fountains. After a tea greeting we were shown to our room--the Turquoise suite. It was spacious with four poster bed and a bath with full amenities. The riad is just off...

“Rooms were divine with different themes..Most on 1st floor, two on ground floor and 1 on the roof. All look down into central space of Riad”
