How to Get There
I’m not one to write bad reviews. But be careful with this place. The staff is increíble rude and lie. We had taken 4 rooms in total. One of them had an awful smell of seuage, I complained to the reception and they said I was lying? And that this was the first time that anyone has ever complained. There is so many reviews about this problem.... they also then proceed to charge us a aircondicioner control that was already broken for 40 euros! The whole thing was madness. The staff going inside our rooms without our permission. Honestly I don’t even know how to warn you out of here. I’ve been in Morocco 3 times and always had really pleasant experiences in other riads. This one is a strong NO. Stay away from here!!
Stayed six nights. First the positives: Great location in Medina. Staff speak English (and French). Quite pretty. We had the biggest room and was very large for the area. Did have free breakfast. The negatives: it isn't as up to date and nice as the pictures (getting some cracks, missing tiles, etc), bad smell in bathroom, breakfast is same every day-and is just breads, very hard to work TV, the "hot" tub is not hot-just a cold pool.
Had a great stay here booked via Airbnb. It's hard to believe that this clean, peaceful, quiet, beautiful riad is right in the medina. A welcome oasis from the busy, smelly, hot streets of Marrakech. In easy walking distance to all major attractions and many restaurants. Lovely roof terrace for drinks in the evening. Would definitely stay here again!
The hotel was very clean, new and central, the ambience very romantic, the staff really friendly and helpful. Breakfast on the rooftop was nice. We went to Marrakech for our anniversary and we loved our stay.
First of all, the Riad is beautiful! Well designed and immaculately clean. The location is absolutely perfect.
The staff were so attentive and friendly and were always on hand to assist with anything we needed, whether it was some delicious lunch,or just some general help and direction regarding what to do whilst visiting
Zineb is the true definition of a gracious host. The other members were fabulous! I highly recommend a stay here if you are looking for a relaxing and serene spot to stay within the medina
Accommodations were lovely and very well decorated . This Riad is in the perfect location- so close to Jemaa el Fna, the souk and Also has plenty of great recommendations on spots to dine and visit. She will also make all arrangements for you to travel to your next destination or to nearby excursions. I will definitely be going back on my next trip!!
P.S. We want to thank Rachid for his help, tips and recommendations. And serving breakfast every day :)
