The Riad is owned and managed by an English couple and their Moroccan staff who can help you with any aspect of your stay in Marrakech and organise shopping trips to the souk, days out to the mountains, guided tours etc.
Quote from Frommers Guide, Marrakech
One of the editors favourite places to stay in Marrakech. The whitewashed walls give the impression of a beach house in Santorini, and thoughtful uses of purple, pink and silver, along with pieces from the owners' travels, lend an ethnic but modern twist. There are plenty of common areas to unwind after a day in the souks and the rooftop has a view of the Atlas Mountains (snowcapped in winter) in the distance. Rooms are decorated with everything from handmade textiles to colorful baskets they have anticipated guests needs, from the in-room outlet adaptors to bookings and recommendations for restaurants, nightlife and spas. Dinner, a mixture of European and moroccan dishes, is not to be missed. The Riad has also been hosting a number of bachelorette parties (hen weekends) and wedding parties, they take care of all the planning, from restaurant reservations to finding the perfect entertainment at no additional charge.
This is a fabulous riad, a wonderful and peaceful oasis situated in the bustling centre of the old town. Felt comfortable and relaxed, due mainly to the owners' fantastic welcome and their very attentive staff. A beautiful Riad, gorgeously decorated, bedrooms have AC and en-suite shower rooms, exceptionally well maintained. Delicious breakfast on the roof terrace at any time! Our hosts gave us helpful advice about Marrakesh and pre-arranged fantastic local cuisine restaurant bookings (after email recommendations to us). 5* quality treatment.
It was wonderful especially for a family celebration. So much to do, and a quiet oasis for family relaxation and fun. Beautiful setting, and nobody will forget the breakfasts on the roof terrace! Dinner was marvelous too, we would have been more than happy to eat in every evening. The staff looked after our every need. We were a very happy party, and I was a very happy birthday girl!
This riad was exquisite! The staff and owners were fantastic. We were provided more information then you could ever need upon our arrival. The breakfast provided with the room was delicious. The roof top terrace is wonderful for breakfast. We highly recommend you have dinner at the riad at least one time as the food was fantastic. Every recommendation made for food, shopping and a guide by the riad was great. The location was perfect. We did a lot of research prior to choosing where to stay and it turned out perfect. If you are still deciding where to stay in Marrakech, look no further this place is perfect.
Although hidden away in a back street, it is close to all of the main activities and within walking distance of the souk and square. On arrival, we were welcomed with a glass of wine and shown to our lovely room on the first floor. Breakfast's were taken on the sunny roof terrace with a view across the city to the distant Atlas mountains. If we wanted to eat in for lunch or dinner, the order was taken at breakfast. Dinner was served in a room just off the inner courtyard that forms the centre of this delightful riad. The food was bought from the market that day and freshly cooked. We had a really comfortable and enjoyable stay here. The staff were all very friendly.
Stayed at this beautiful Riad for 4 nights in march, lovely place with great staff, who are extremely helpful. They give you a nice breakfast in the morning and can cook lunch and dinner if you need. The riad is in a really good location in the medina and is a very short walk to the souks. I would definitely go back.
