Hard to find (but if you arrange it, someone will pick you up outside the medina). Sometimes wifi problems. Ground floor rooms are a bit noisy. I highly recommend it.
Arnaud (the owner) and his wife were very helpful. The interior is recently renovated (still some stucco work going on). Clean and modern. Nice rooftop terrace.

Riad perfect with beautifully presented rooms. Owners super friendly and helpful. Breakfasts plentiful and fresh. i look forward to returning again for another perfect stay.

Location is hard to find even though the map the hotel provides is fairly good. It's a very touristic area and the people who pretend to help you finding things might charge ridiculous amounts of money.
The owner, a Frenchman, is very friendly helpful and understanding regarding the joys and frustrations a Marrakech visit comes with. The hostel is very comfortable and with a lot of attention to detail though partly under construction still. Excellent bed and cleanliness.

Owner wasn't fair and charged us for a night we did not stay even though we booked excursion with her and did not keep a room for us upon return and did not have the decency to say it clearly. She kindly tried to arrange excursions for us whilst in France. We had booked 2 nights in a row but needed to change our booking for a night Before the excursion to the desert and a night after. We sent the owner 10 emails asking to please be clear whether we could do that or not, if not we would postpone our trip to the desert. She was not clear at all - she was actually insistently vague and kept replying to our emails in French and not answering the question no matter how directly or clearly we asked it. On the knowledge that she told us 'your trip to the desert is confirmed' we went to the desert and (stupidly) paid in advance for the two nights. We emailed her asking whether we would have a room upon return or not. In the last minute, when we were tired returning from the desert we received an email from her in which She was, as per usual, responding in French as vague as vague can be saying to call two other Riads to guard a room. To us this meant: not we have not have kept a room and no we did not have the decency to give you the fair information beforehand, that would enable you to make an informed decision. Will never stay there again and would not recommend for anybody. For 5 more euros you can stay in a mucjh nicer Riad or hotel.
Room okay, there was hot water. Staff very helpful and friendly.

March 26, 2015
Not friendly staff No wi-fi for our stay Cold-not helped by rain and open roof.
Very good shower
March 22, 2015
in march it was a bit cold in our room, but luckily we had a small heating in our room
we had a really nice stay in this riad. everything was clean and the stuff is really nice. the owner of the riad showed us the way to the place Djeema el Fna (which is not so easy to find alone for tourists) and even gave us some advice where we can buy good tea and souveniers. the riad has a nice terrace where we had good breakfast every morning.
March 15, 2015
the room was large, clean and with a lovely detailed decoration. The staff was awesome especially the owner who even bought bus tickets for us and helped up finding everything for the right price! The Riad is as the most riads a bit difficult to find but must effort was given to help us with the orientation. The breakfast was very nice but simple and it's possible to have dinner there too. They even sell wine or offer to smoke a traditional water pipe.

We booked 11 days stay at Lalla Piccara. This was the biggest mistake we could have done. This mistake costed us our holidays, a nervous breakdown and the memories we'd so like to forget. There is several things in this Riad that are really wrong, but the biggest of them is the owner, Arnaud. I will try to list here everything that happened during our stay at Lalla Piccara in order to warn tourists about this place. At first the owner took our passports and demanded we pay Tourist Tax before he returns them to us. Tip: pay the tourist tax in Euro! Not in Dirhams as the owner suggests, because he will "calculate" the exchange rate the way, that You'll need to pay twice as much as you should be paying. We have compared the tax we had to pay to the one paid by tourists in other Riads and our one was the highest. Also, dont be fooled by beautiful pictures of the Riad as this is NOT how the Riad currently looks! We have pictures to prove that what we're writing here is true. There was dump and mould covering half of the ceiling in the bathroom and water was constantly leaking on the side of the toilet (with a broken seat). Drains in the shower were flodded and the lights were on only when the boiler was being turned on. A place advertised by the owner as "roof terrace with views of Marrakech" is full of garbage, old pots, pieces of wood and cables. Its nothing more than a tiny storage roof used to hang wet bedsheets and towels. The wooden stears leading to that "roof terrace" were broken and extremly dangerous as there was no railing to hold on to (the one on the wall was not properly attached and was coming off the wall). Wires were hanging from some of the lamps and electric sockets in the room were coming off the wall dangerously with wires exposed. There was no hot water in the morning.
The two girls who clean the rooms and prepare breakfast.

It was very cold in the room and bathroom.
We loved the hospitality of the staff! We were welcome by traditional Moroccan tea and a piece of cake. The room looked charming, we felt like having entered the world of the 1001 Nights fairy tales. The breakfast was also delicious.

Hotel accommodation can be paid by cash only, sometimes they have problems with wi-fi
Location - in the heart of old city. This is a real palace
March 3, 2015
the nights in the riad in February are a bit chilly, not always hot water
Arnaud is such a nice and helpful person, the riad's cuisine is excellent, located in the centre of Marrakech, very helpful staff.
February 23, 2015
Our stay at Lalla Picarra was great! The staff folk were very welcoming and our room was very comfortable. Upon arrival, we were greeted with tea and cake. The location is also great, right inside the Medina and not too far away from some major areas. We also had breakfast the morning before our departure. It was delicious and included typical Moroccan breakfast cuisine.

The manager will try to do the best he can to make your holiday unforgettable. Price/quallity is ok and in the middle of the old Medina of Marakkech

The room was freezing. I had booked a riad as opposed to a cheap hotel as it was supposed to have heating. I was told the heater for the room was broken and was offered an extra blanket which made sleeping possible but hanging out in the room was not an option. Also the location, while very authentic and photogenic by day, is not an area I would want to be lost in or even wander around alone in at night. And get lost you will...even the locals can't find it. Like all riads it is quite attractive and ut is cheaper than most. However, although it is an ok option for the money, it is not all that stunningly beautiful, as riads go.
The bed was comfy and it was quiet and peaceful. I didn't even get woken by the mosque in the morning which is unusual for Marrakech. Coffee at breakfast was also better than usual for Morocco although a 2nd cup had to be asked for

cold rooms and bathroom bed linen not very clean difficult to find
February 11, 2015
My wife got biting by some bed bugs and on the next couple of nights we saw and kill some, probably who ever stayed there before us has brought them from the desert. We were worried to bring them back to our house. It's has been a week since we got back and the are no signs of them yet, God whiling, we wont see them again
The staff and owner are very welcoming and really nice ppl. The place was really clean and the breakfast was delicious. It not the easiest place to get to specially if it is night time. to get picked up from the airport will be a great option specially if you are arriving at night.
February 3, 2015
Have to pay extra for the heating.
the stuff was helpful, our room was pretty nice and clean. Common terrace at the top of the building.
January 27, 2015
Difficult to find but thought it was part of the charm. Think that all riads in the medina are probably difficult to find so it just goes with staying in this area but the location is great for quick access to popular spots. Only able to access wifi from courtyard.
Super friendly host & great room.

We were hugely disappointed with the service. Not only were we forced to pay with in cash (after being told we could pay with credit card) but we were cold and without proper lighting during the evening hours. The owner was rude and unable to properly navigate the dispute process. What you see online is not what you get in person!
The night manager Mohammed tried his best to accommodate.
January 10, 2015
Booked the double room with bath, kitchen, dining area and heater as discripted in the room details, but none of the above was there. The location is further away from the point on the map to the souks.

There were several large problems with this riad - first and foremost the owner. He was only present for our first night in the riad and demanded that we pay him in cash (something I have never encountered before at a professional establishment reserved via booking). We told him that it was not possible as it would have been thousands of their local currency, something that no sane person does in a foreign country! As he went on vacation to France, he proceeded to harrass us daily and send us erroneous bills (charging us for an extra person, that clearly after reomoving one of the "extra" beds in our three person room - was NOT present) and demanded that we pay the bill via "factobox". He was unprofessional, and we weren't the only guests at the time that had problems with his unprofessional "billing system". Other problems included EXTREMELY cold rooms that only had small fleece blankets (a problem we didn't even face while sleeping in the Sahara desert), a room that DID NOT lock (thus forcing us to leave all of our personal belongings in a friend's room), him entering our room and changing/removing beds without our permission when we were out and very POOR lighting. In fact, the lighting was almost nonexistant because there were no lightbulbs. Additionally the pictures are not a TRUE representation of the riad - many rooms are actually not even shown. This turned out to be a problem for another group, as they were not pleased with the room that they had NOT been shown at booking. This riad may appear to be a good price, but the price you pay when you get there is NOT worth it.
The staff (with the exception of the owner) is absolutely lovely - they served us a delicious breakfast, cleaned our rooms daily, provided us with shisha upon request, met us after excursions to bring us back to the riad and overall were EXTREMELY hardworking. Like all of the Moroccans we met during our 10 days in the country they were absolutely lovely, as were the services they provided us with.
