“Wished we could have stayed longer!”
Reviewed 14 March 2013

I have never left a review before but this riad deserves high praise indeed. From the moment we booked I had contact with the lovely Charlotte who helped organise bus tickets to essaouira (and collected on our behalf), a driver from the airport and a truly delicious 3 course meal ready for when we arrived at the riad - i must add that the roast chicken with almonds was one of the best dishes I have ever eaten and I don't say this lightly. Also, the mint tea is excellent here.
The place is beautiful, the breakfast on the terrace was idyllic, the rooms are well decorated, it is so peaceful and the staff are all really friendly and helpful. Unfortunately we did not meet Rashid but Charlotte is very lovely and we wished we could have stayed longer. We would love to come back and would recommend to anyone.

A bit hard to find, but just call the staff and they will come and take you. Rooms are perfect, not much privacy (thin windows directly on the hall) but gorgeous furniture, beautiful bathroom, nice terrace where you can have breakfast!

Perfect Riad for our 4 night trip to Marrakech. The Riad is hidden away and very peaceful but only minutes walk from all that Marrakech has to offer. Rachid, Charlotte and their staff offer guests that extra attention that is missing in a large Hotel. Nothing was too much trouble for them no matter how busy they may have been. We found the food at the Riad to be better than at local restaurants. Thanks for making our trip so special. Alan & Jo, UK

A fantastic traditional riad in a good location - our room was beautiful and the staff were extremely friendly - nothing was too much trouble. Before we even arrived, Charlotte had e-mailed us and on arrival, they cooked a welcome meal for us - the best food we had on our trip; the breakfast each day was also amazing. We were shown an easy route to the main square and two trips were organised for us. The staff are all exceptional. The riad is only 10-15 min walk from the main square and souks and just a little further to the new town and Majorelle Gardens. Thoroughly recommended :)

Definitely, Charlotte, Rachid, Simon turn this stay into a very good memory! Well done guys! Very friendly, helpful, welcoming people! They provided the best service I have seen in Morocco, if not the best I have seen in my last 5 trips! I would send some 'luxury hotels' teams to learn from them! They were always available, did their best, polite and friendly, suggested help and advise but non-intrusive!
Riad is beautiful, clean and nice to stay! Breakfast is served on the roof terrace whenever you wake up, which is really very nice service on vacation! I would also really recommend their dinner! really nice local food for fair price! Excellent service again!
Our room was small and had opened windows to the internal yard, so, if you want privacy, ask about it. Otherwise, it was ok, designed for real Moroccan experience!

I cannot express how well we were taken care of. Charlotte and Rachid are so kind and accommodating. They go above and beyond to make you feel right at home. Do yourself a huge favor and let Charlotte arrange everything for you! She is always prompt in answering emails and arranged most of our trip for us before we even arrived! She arranged a private 3 day tour of the desert and Atlas Mountains in which we drove all around Morocco and got to see how people really live outside of the big cities. It was one of the most breathtaking and romantic experiences of my life. I am quite well traveled and I have never experienced anything close to this kind of hospitality. The staff there is also excellent with Muhammad took EXCELLENT care of us and the maid even folded the clothes I left out neatly. Absolutely Lovely! <3

Room Tip: They were all really beautiful

Not only are the owners, Charlotte and Rachid, charming and welcoming but all the staff cannot do enough for you. Charlotte gives you a little opening description of the sites to see and a helpful map, between her and Rachid they speak most languages. The food is delicious and the wine is very good and not expensive. The bedrooms are comfortable, the bathrooms really great, the whole place immaculately clean. You are given a key to your bedroom, the safe and the front door and told to treat the riad as your home which we did and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is incredibly good value compared to other hotels we stayed in afterwards and I really look forward to returning. The riad is only around 20 minutes walk from Djameed el Fna main square or a 5 minute taxi ride (€2.50). It is in the old part of town and there is fabulous street food at night in the souk just the other side of Riad Laarouss square, the nearest any taxi can get and where you are bound to find one at any time. It is a wonderful, calm, place and, with the chaos that exists in Marrakech, you need somewhere to go that brings you back down to Earth.

Room Tip: There are two bedrooms on the ground floor which are great if you don't want to climb the stairs...
