“Got a wrong room, wrong description online”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2013 via mobile

This is my first time writing a Review because i don't really like this hotel and marrakech itself. We booked twin room with aircond. But when we got room, it was a double room and without aircond. When we asked about that, the girl who was at the reception ignored us and said the night is ok without aircond because it would be less warm. But, she lied!! The ventilation system was bad because there was no window at all and without aircond or fan, u can barely breathing.

The location was bad because it was really complicated to find the hotel. u must asked the local, but remember that most of them always help for your money. But, a few of them were good too. Mood: disappointed..

The riad is very charming, especially because it really is in the inner district.
Super cute, but very unfortunate the rooms are moderate.
It's just a few minutes walk from the famous square: Jamae el Fna and her mysterious atmosphere.

After being stranded by another Riad, Amskal came to our rescue and gave us a place to sleep for the night. The room wasn't great, the shower hose had a hole in it so you showered the whole bathroom in addition to yourself, the door didn't lock and the bedding was damp. However, I can't say enough great things about the staff!

We made our reservation after seeing the pictures in booking.com. We were very excited as the pictures showed beautiful rooms and even a terrace overlooking some gardens. Well, we never saw the nice rooms nor the terrace. We got a terrible room. Small, poor, smelly and, overall, not very pleasent. I conplained to the staff but they told me they couldnt do anything about it, even though there was no one else staying at the hotel - they didn´t even consider giving us another room.
The breakfast wasnt so good either.
We payed 24 euros per night (for two of us) which seems a reasonable price but Im sure that if you look around you´ll find something a lot better for the same price or less.

Room Tip: Make sure you don´t get the twin.

stayed at this riad for4 days, pay attention to the photos as the rooms are smaller than you see in the photos, it is located in the old part of marakesh which to us was perfect very real and everyone very friendly, dont be worried about the small lanes as after first trip out easy to find your way back, the riad is immaculatly clean thanks to the hard work of Nadia and Mohammed I cannot praise these two enough, nothing is too much trouble for them, they are a pleasure to know, working so hard to give you all the information, help they can. Please realise these two work for wages not like european wages so tip them well as they rely on this, and honestly deserve all you give them, if you were in a hotel in europe you would tip so do the same here, I was disgusted to hear that tourists when we were there] left without paying their bill SHAME ON YOU! These guys have to pay that out of there meagre salary so please respect them. The only down side was small things like broken toilet seat which is the responsibility of the owner to fix not the staff who as I say are absolutly fantastic, THANK YOU SO MUCH Mohammed and Nadia for your kindness I feel honoured to have met you

Room Tip: in winter the suite on the top floor best as opens up onto roof terrace, but in summer take a room o...

So, it was a balmy February evening... we landed in Marrakech.
We got a taxi to the entrance of the Medina, although its not really the main medina...
The riad was relatively easy to locate, however, in the dark, it was a bit creepy, walking through the twisting alleyways..

Our room was a bit dingy, but clean enough... The shared bathroom was small, and quite unlike what we had seen in the photos... Not to be too critical though...

The staff was friendly and attentive, breakfast was nice... mmmm fresh orange juice. and a nice crepe and sundry..

Marks out of ten... seven.

The Riad is very clean, situated in the Medina and thus close to some of the more important interesting places in Marrakech. Breakfast was enjoyed on top of the Riad with a marvellous view over the outskirts of the city. Mohamed was exceedingly helpful and very kind. Diner (not included in the price, of course, but fairly cheap) was typical Moroccan, very tasty and wealthy.
One minor issue was that, at least our room - located on the first floor - was very small, and devoid of any window.
