Fine but worn Riad
Reviewed 2 months ago

At arrival they had overbooked the Riad so we had to stay at another the first night. We got a bottle of champagne so that was okay. The Riad is very bright and that was nice. But many things are lacking. Many of the cushions in the common area and in the room was dirty. A big tray of oranges in the common area was bad and flies was around them for days. The room was very simple and was worn and was not so clean. At our room you could almost not close the door when you used the toilet. In the shower you had to take the metal part of the drain up to get the water out. When the hairdryer was used is smelled like burns plastic and the last day we saw that there was a red glowing wire behind an outlet. Nice Riad but it needs an update and a bit bigger effort in running it.

Well-located budget option

This was the first place I stayed in Morocco. It wasn't supposed to be 5-star... but I was a little shocked at what it was. I guess it just has a "rustic" kind of aesthetic that really doesn't appeal to me. Mind you, most of Morocco seems to have that same aesthetic - nothing ever lines up millimetre perfect, the tiles always look a hundred years old even when new - it's all a reflection of the materials they have and the workmanship standards. Friendly, safe, reasonably comfortable... the only "real" complaint I had was that the shower didn't drain very well, and you were ankle deep in water by the end.

Best place ever

Beautiful riad very close to everything in Marrakech. Shout-out to Hamza who made our stay perfect! Rooftop has an incredible view over the city and Atlas mountains. Food is delicious and shisha is also possible in the riad. Also very quiet area, in short: an amazing place to stay in Marrakech.

A beautiful Riad that is close to the souk. Our suite was beautifully appointed, the meals we had there were delicious and the staff were all friendly and very helpful. It was an easy walk to the Jewish quarter and the mosque and the bustling square
I would recommend this Riad for a memorable stay.

Very recommendable Riad
Reviewed 7 months ago

The riad is located very centrally in the medina of Marrakesh near the Bahia Palace. It spreads a very comfy atmosphere in which you can relax from the busy streets of Marrakesh. The young staff is very obliging and friendly!

Thank you Dar Crystal Team for having us!
