“Perfect place to for passing through”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 November 2013

On the travel from Zagora to Essaouira we stayed one night in the Riad of Mrs Rose. The Riad is located in the old medina, near the mosque. It is decorated very nicely and you feel as if entering a 1001 night tale. The ownster is extremely welcoming and helpfull. She showed us the room and the beautifull terrace on top of the roof. We had dinner in the Riad, and Mrs Rose turned out to be an excellent cook.
One of the best and frienliest Iads ever!

Room Tip: Probably best to stay on the upper floors: these are rooms with a view

It wasn't easy to find this hotel... the kasbah is beyond the capabilities of the GPS! Once we had found it (a miracle through the maze of lanes), the owner came back to the car park with us and showed us where to leave our car... just around the corner! Although I always tell 'pesky' types who try to show us where to go to get lost... it might just have been the way to go here.
Once we finally got to the hotel (the owner spotted me with my folder) we had a lovely time. She is very friendly and cooks wonderful food. Breakfast on the roof terrace is one of the highlights of your holiday. The decor is brilliant and she is very proud of it. We had a Berber-style suite. The shower is a bit 'rough' but there's plenty of hot water so it doesn't really matter.
If you're after something different you won't forget in a hurry, this is for you.

Room Tip: Rooms on lower floors are dark but atmospheric. We deliberately chose one of these.

We stayed for one night. The location is a bit difficult to find via car. We have GPS, but the riad is located "off-map" in the middle of local kasbah dwelling. We initially parked at a nearby public parking lot, and the attendant called the riad to have someone show us the way.

The views from the terrace of the riad are outstanding. It looks out over the kasbah dwelling as well as the countryside.

The room itself was okay. It was a bit dark and the bathroom needs upgrading.

Breakfast was superb. We were served a copious amount of food with a variety of breads, pancakes, boiled eggs and yogurt. It was delicious.

Aside from the great views, we found the location to be a drawback. We walked through the local kasbah to get to the restaurants on the main road. We were hassled by the locals quite badly (worse than in Marrakech or Essaouira). We managed to get lost on our return, at which point a teenager pulled the "uncle's shop" routine on us. This is not the riad's fault. We just recommend getting the directions in advance of setting out.

We had such a great stay in Rose Noire. The owners are so friendly, which made our stay a great memory. Moreover, they are very helpfull and generous. The Riad has a beautiful and warm interior. The rooms are spacious, clean and also beautiful, in Moroccan style. Also there is a roof terras with a great view where breakfast is served. Located in the kashban, we definitely recommend this Riad in Ouarzazate!!

I liked the overall feel of the place and rooms, which were decorated very tastefully. Pleasant people are running the business.

I have visited the hotel in low season, so the dinners were not available, however good suggestions offered regarding dining out.

Breakfast basic, but nice to have it on rooftop area, which offers nice views of Kasbah…

The bathroom fixtures could be updated, the communal area and offices could be a bit more tidy.

I have asked for airport pick up as I have seen on other reviews that it could be done. What I didn’t like, was the inconsistency when comes to settle the taxi fares. Some travellers claim their ride was free. I assumed that and fell embarrassed, when initially I was ignoring the cab driver request for payment.

Overall, this b&b offers good accommodation, but don’t expect luxuries and 5* treatment.

Pro- The room we stayed in was very beautifully decorated. The bathroom was clean, well equipped and spacious. The family was friendly.

Con- This is really a B&B experience, in that you are staying in a home occupied by three generations of a family. As such, by day and night you will hear them calling out to one another throughout the courtyard style building, and the baby will be noisy and up late. Our booking confirmation stated credit cards would be accepted; cash only was the on-site policy, however. Breakfast was minimal, but served with cheer. Internet frequently unavailable.
