“Good riad, great location”
Reviewed 5 July 2011

I booked a confort room which was rather small, but clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good and served on the terrace, but not enjoyable as the honey and jam attracted plenty of bees.

The riad provides shampoo and shower gel made from Argan oil and the hamam is also worth a visit. It is about 5 minutes walk from the square and although the narrow streets may seem frightening at night, are very safe.

L'heure d'ete is definitely good value for money and I would definitley visit again providing the problem with the bees is sorted as breakfast cannot be served any where else.

We (mother and dauhter) stayed in this Riad for a week and we enjoyed it very much. We liked the breakfast on the terras. The staff was friendly on all levels. We had a premium room and the heating was very good. Important in winter. They are installing aircos now for the warmer periods. Although you have to walk through some narrow streets (where the hell do they bring us!!) after one day people know you and greet you. It is just a few minutes from Jemaa al-Fna. Great spot!!

This is a very good riad very close to Djemaa el Fna. It is not easy to find it, and the streets are narrow and a bit dark, but the area feels safe. The riad itself is pleasant, but the rooms are a bit small, and in one of our rooms there was an unpleasant smell from the bathroom. We also had the suite, actually a big room, but very nice and spacious. I recommend booking the suite if you want to stay in comfort.

The interior is beautiful in typical Moroccan style. There is also a hammam in the riad.
Breakfast is served at the roof terrace which is a bit cold in winter mornings. On the other hand, this keeps the bees away. Whereas most riads serve their jams and honey in cowered bowls this one doesn't . Rumour has spread among bees in the area so they all arrive for breakfast. Breakfast service is very slow, but the staff is friendly and nice.

Unfortunately enough they do not accept credit cards. To reserve you have to pay 30% to their Spanish bank account. This is safe, but a bit unpractical. You then have to carry the rest in cash, which can feel a bit unpleasant.

Super nice staff. Super nice room. Super nice terrace & Breakfast. 2min away from the central square. Don't be scared by narrow street access. 30% upfront payment 100% secure.

It is a small riad with a simplistic style at a central location for a relatively high price. Friendly staff and simple breakfast on a relaxing terrace. If you want sophisticated and lavishly decorated riads, you should look elsewhere. Confort rooms have no windows toward the streets and do not have much ventilation, so are not recommended. Streets feel a bit scary in the evenings (I was not robbed though). Hammou at the front desk will recommend you a two-day trip to the desert with Mr. Salem Azizi's Maroc Desert Aventure for 350 euros (he'll start asking you for 600 euros). He won't say that you can go with a group for 60 euros. Join the national sport of haggling :)

I stayed here with my parents and I would recommend it to anyone. The location is amazing only 3 min walk from main square, the staff are all very helpfull and the hotel is clean and nicely decorated. The rooms are small but have lovely ensuite bathrooms, and the roof terrace is a lovely place to have your breakfast or escape from the hussle and bussle of this great city.

Reviewed 8 March 2010

just back from 4 nights staying at l'heure d'été we thoroughly enjoyed our stay - among those things we appreciated most were the friendly, helpful staff, particularly Hanane and Hammou - they always had a smile on their faces and were happy to help us with advice and suggestions - we took advantage of the hammam and massage which was a treat too - on the downside it appears there is a swarm of bees nearby which meant that the delightful breakfasts on the terrace were spoiled by bees interested in the jams and jellies (my wife is alergic to bee stings) - the rooms are small with no chairs to sit on - and the nature of the riad meant that there were no windows opening outdoors - for those who appreciate fresh air when sleeping this can be a drawback - a bit frustrated by the high speed internet connection which worked sporadically -
we had a fine time and would return -
