Amazing Stay in Marrakesh
Amazing experience at the Riad! The team all the difference in our trip. They were so kind and keen to help at all times! Asma took great care of us and the whole staff was extremely helpful. The breakfast is brilliant and they change a little bit everyday for you to enjoy all the Moroccan flavours. Thanks for everything and definitely coming back! PS: We recommend getting the transfer from the airport, even more if you arriving after sunset. The narrow roads can be quite daunting for the first comers.

Fantastic stay
Amazing stay. Beautiful Riad in a great location - very near the main square and souks but very tranquil. Asma and her team an absolute delight and couldn’t do enough to ensure a pleasant stay. Arrived in the evening so had dinner in the Riad - traditional Moroccan food - reasonably priced and wine available if desired. Breakfast was fab and an excellent start to hectic days in the square and souks. Looking forward to returning in the future ........

Amazing!
An incredible stay at this Riad. The staff were exceptional and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. Special thanks to Jalil and Adil for everything. It is located on a quiet road just off the Medina - a perfect location for exploring Marrakech. The rooms are perfectly clean and the breakfast is brilliant. Would recommend to everyone!
