location was ok. the medina in marrakech is very big and requires a lot of walking. its nice to be in a quieter area of the medina especially if you want to get sleep at night. the place was nice overall. very relaxing.
they breakfast was a bit stingy. only some bread and butter. we asked for more soap but only a tiny soap bar was given for 1 time use. there was also no shampoo or bath gel. the the wifi signal was very weak inside the rooms and was only able to connect in the courtyard. it is difficult to find in the beginning but then becomes easy. room has no privacy because there are no shades and the slightest noise can be heard from downstairs and the entire riad.
The personal attention was great. Welcome tea, helped us out with electrical adaptors, etc. As we were two girls on our own, the porter at night took us to a restaurant to have dinner so we didn't get lost or bothered by others. But I must say that Marrakech is perfectly safe for two women travelling on their own. Rumours are false!
It is a bit far from the main square. So, perfect if you're looking for quite nights. However, if you are going with a bunch of friends it is better to stay in a hotel than a Riad because these are more intimate, calm and quite spaces.
Generally good value for money.
This is a gorgeous little Riad just a few minutes walk from the hustle and bustle of the souks and main square. It is beautifully decorated and with only a handful of rooms it was always peaceful and there was always space to relax on the roof terrace or in outside square downstairs. The staff were really helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend this place and would stay there again if I were to visit again. The Riad arranged the airport transfer for us and we are glad we did this because we wouldn't have been a able to find the Riad the first time without assistance.
We had a very damp room with mold on the walls the first night. The second night we got another room. The staff were nice though. There are other places in the Medina that are cheaper and equally nice.
Mouna and people working in the riad were really nice and ready to help. Breakfast was really good with typical moroccan bread and pancake. Room Gaspard suite was nice and big. Hot water is limited but enough for 2. We enjoyed having breakfast in the patio and the view of the stars on the rooftop. Real moroccan experience in the medina. The location is not bad, really close to the souk and the main place. It is really safe even at night.
The riad is in the medina. It means that taxi can not get there. They drop you at the entrance of the medina and then you have to walk (less than 5 minute) inside the tiny streets with no indication. You have to pay a guide to bring you to the door of the riad or maybe make arrangement with riad staff first. Wi-Fi internet is only available in the patio not in the room.
The suites are large; and furnished in local style. It's a small riad and all the staff were very good.
The breakfast was fairly basic: we went to a local bakery to buy pastries to supplement it.
Quiet friendly location in a good part of the old town
Wifi wasn't working for most of our week's visit Breakfasts were a bit limited - nice orange juice, but otherwise all bread and cake - would have liked some fruit or yoghurt.
The man and woman that ran the riad were incredibly friendly and helpful. The rooms were immaculate and the breakfast as delicious and made when we wanted it. The rooms were very pretty and extremely comfortable. Very clean bathrooms. Five minute walk to the Medina and Souks. We can't recommend this place enough. Perfect.
