Lovely hostel about a 10 min walk to the main square. Staff were all very nice and the owner speaks great English but communication was a but difficult when he was not there. Not a problem if you speak French though!
This place is located ideally for those who want to be close to the medina but still treasure a quiet environment. The facility is clean and beautifully decorated...just sitting around in the courtyard next to the fireplace and admiring the colourful surroundings was an experience. The breakfast is lavishly presented, service is friendly and the riad offers several additional amenities such as a Moroccan wine if you want to relax in the evening, a traditional dinner, etc

The Riad was beautiful, we only stayed there one night before we flew back to London, and it was a perfect chill out where we had the whole place to ourselves. The staff were friendly, although spoke more or less no english, so broken french had to do. The only downside was that we had to leave early in the morning, and when we asked if we could have it early (as it was included) the was no effort to accommodate this. I would recommend this Riad to friends.
It's a very nice place with beautiful rooms and very comfortable too. Location couldn't be any better, so close to Jemaa el-Fna (in walking distance). They give free mint teas each time. Too bad the wifi was limited at certain area and the tv in our room was broken at the last day.
The place is locked at 1:30 AM so anyone interested in staying out later might get locked out. Otherwise, there are clean and comfortable rooms and a nice terrace.
This was a nice riad. It was slightly outside the medina but easy to find and the staff were very helpful. They served beer as well!
Very friendly small riad which was clean and quiet. Nice breakfast which is served pretty much any time you want up until 11. We had a big room with a massive widescreen TV which was great as the world cup was on. The riad is a few minutes walk from the main square on a nice quiet street. We liked it so much we stayed there a second time after we had visited other places in Morocco.
Beautiful, peaceful riad (almost as quiet as a library). Staff is extremely helpful (booked us one day at another place when they didn't have space). Dinner is huge and delicious (for fee) and in-house hammam was very convenient! Only comment is the owner is the only one who speaks a lot of English (everyone else French/Arabic) although everyone is extremely helpful.
Excellent Riad... I have to say that this is much more than a Hostel, is like his name - "Riad" - said a little palace. You will have a wonderful experiences in a beautiful place, with a very committed staff, very nice food (AND GREAT BREAKFAST), in the middle of the Medina where you can experience the real Marrakesh. 100% Recomended!
I stayed in this Riad for one night. The staff were very helpfull. It is very clean and quiet. I really enjoyed our stay and would definately come back to this riad!
This riad is difficult to locate iniaitlly, but worth the effort. It is a close walk to the medina but far enough away that you can relax there. The staff are all very nice and the room was great! Definaltly reconmend!
It´s a great place, pretty rooms with typically maroccan decoration, nice roof terrace, great tee and breakfast, very freindly and helpful staff. All in all, definitely recommendable. I would stay there again next time.
Fantastic riad. Incredibly clean and the staff were unbelievably nice. Literally five minutes to El Fna and very safe. The fun rating is due to the fact that it's an Islamic country and boozing isn't exactly accepted. I'm trying to get my whole family to go to this place within the year.
This place is absolutely adorable and amazing! The staff are so incredibly friendly and helpful and make the stay wonderful! It's a perfect location next to the square but far enough away to be safe from all ofthe hustle. Would definitely stay here again!!
I took my mum on a birthday visit as she has always wanted to see Marrecech, however, it was the stay at the riad that she loved the most, a beautiful, clean & authentic place, staff were calm, polite & accomodating, cooked for us at our convenience, picked us up & dropped us at the airport but were never intrusive. The riad is charming & peaceful, especially after a hot, dusty & stressful day of haggling at the market! We loved it so much we are planning to reurn with my husband & kids. Mandi
Excellent location and very peaceful and traditional accomodation. Defenitely worth it.
You should def. stay in this riad if you looking for perfect location (5 min from the market) nice breakfast, clean rooms and peace. The owner is very enthusiastic guy and has been very helpful. We also had a dinner and it was a great choice. Traditional and very tasty. I loved the decoration, colours, the view from the roof terrace...
Warm welcome in a beautifull, domestic and caracteristic Riad. The manager speaks fluently englisch, is very helpful and friendly. Due to the february-rain we could not often use the lovely roof terrace. In the Riad plenty of room to sit and chill. Lovely rooms and bathrooms. Really a Riad to return and to recommend to others. Transfer airport: 7 persons- 30 euro
The Riad was cozy and the breakfast excellent. More attention to detail such as cleanliness of bathing area, properly mounted shower heads, working electrical outlets is needed. Mahjoub was a great host-very accomodating. Excellent location!
