    Everything was perfect Beautiful Riad within a short walk from the square Djemaa El-Fna, in a quite area. Staff extremely nice, effecient and kind. Nice breakfast served in the court of the Riad (with fresh squeezed orange juice and homemade strawberry and apricot marmelade: delicious)

    Attention to detail, lovely appointed rooms (but very small). Close to all the action of the main square!

    Very difficult to locate - but amazing once you get there!

    The staff on arrival day was very incompetent. The Riad is impossible to find if you haven't been there, and I had to call 5 times trying to get instructions on how to get there. Impossible, the staff couldn't explain in English or French. Once a guide found the Riad, they didn't give us the room, nor apologised, but had us sit around and wait, and even made unfriendly remarks when I asked about the keys. The Riad itself is beautiful, just be careful in the stairs and doors if you are higher then 1,40m to not hit your head. Just on checkout a friendly young man spoke to us and apologised. Better late then not at all.

    Everything about this riad is fantastic!! With only 6 rooms, it is very intimate, unbelievably quiet and only 3 minutes to the entry to the first Souk!! That means it is close enough to return to your room for a relax before setting out again for an evenings entertainment. Soufiane and hakima (the highly capable young resident 'manager' and chief chambermaid) virtually run the riad themselves! The breakfast is a fantastic mix of French/Maroc. Not advertised, but ask for a cold beer or wine. Get a price first, but a 'Private' trip to the mountains is a must, and ask to see, inside..., A genuine Berber house, .....Well worth the extra 20 dms. Open air evening meal in the Square is another 'must' Fantastic 4 days!!

    Do not be put off by the 'dark and off putting' entrance through the myriad of passages. This is typical of a centrally located riad, and the 'Oasis' more than covers the apprehension!

    I was sent an email by the owner to say that I could pay by paypal and then I was told I couldn't because their computers were down. Luckly I had an iphone and paid via that on paypal

    Very good location. Friendly staff. Good value for money

    It is not a 5 stars Riad, no luxury at all. It is a good 4 stars.

    The staff were excellent and very friendly, especially Sufian. The Riad itself it extremely well positioned and pretty, although it is smaller than it looks in the photos. The roof top is pleasant but there's not much up there in terms of comfy chairs etc. (there is a washing line and a solar panel).

    They tried to charge an extra 4% to the bill for "paying by card" (bank charges). As this wasn't mentioned on the original booking, we didn't pay it, but the discussion about it slightly soured an otherwise happy stay. The food in the Riad "restuarant" is ok but nothing special.

    A lovely riad, simple rooms but elegant and spotlessly clean. Beds extremely comfortable and good lighting. Very friendly and helpful staff. Thank you Soufiane! We had one meal the evening of arrival which was of a local theme, basic but very edible. Breakfast was very decent with a choice of coffee/tea, local crepe-like pastries, fresh fruit salad, delicious local yoghurt, brioche and bread! Watch the local butter though it's a little like frozen ghee! We asked the hotel to organise a taxi both from and too the airport which was all very efficient. If you are new to a Medina layout be aware that you'll need help finding the hotels/riads so a man to carry cases in a trolley and take you straight there, is a must. We also asked the riad to organise a car and driver for a day’s outing to the mountains. Cost Euros 80.00 but reasonably priced compared to the group excursions we saw advertised and we had the driver for the whole day to go where we wanted, to stop whenever we wanted to take photos and to learn ask questions about local culture.

    Upset at the credit card machine being broken and hoping it's not a tax dodge as many Moroccan traders prefer cash to card! Luckily we had 3 separate cards with us so that we could access money and only JUST avoided the problem of daily cash withdrawal limits. Apparently there would have been no other way of paying! WiFi was free but we couldn't get a signal in our 1st floor room.

    Excellent hospitality. Pure morrocan style which was what we were looking for. Sufian who was available at all times to assist us in everything including a late night of excellent morrocan tea was an added bonus.

    The staff were AMAZING at this riad, helping us book tours and transportation. The room was clean and cozy. Breakfast was fruits, bread and eggs (a special request), pancakes, also fresh squeezed orange juice and coffee. The location was right in the middle of the activity.The riad is located in the souk and it's about a five minute walk to Jemma el Fna Square, down an alley. We highly recommend this riad.

    A perfect quiet and calm riad awaits from the bustle of the street. The room was large and clean. Wifi is free of charge. There is a rooftop terrace to enjoy the city views and evening meal was perfect. The riad offers an airport pick up (at a small charge) that is definitely worth it so you don't get lost. Would recommend but would suggest taking extra cash along ( see "what didn't you like section).

    The credit card machine was not working during our stay. We were made aware of this the day before leaving but we were limited to a certain amount of cash from the ATM each day and had to visit over a few days for spending money and to pay the bill.

    I cannot speak highly enough of Riad Dar Ten or Sofiane (I'm so sorry if I spelt your name wrong!) He not only showed us how to get around when there was no need too, but went on a Sunday to get me medicine when I was ill was always on hand to help, patient, considerate. One of the best men you are likely to meet anywhere. The Riad itself is one of the best places I have ever stayed, anywhere and is only 5 minutes from Place Jamaa El Fna but is quiet despite this. It's comfortable, the roof terrace is a wonderful place to sit at night, and the rooms are beautiful. My girlfriend and I are in no doubt about going back next year, Marrakech is a beautiful City, and we wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else while there. Thank you Sofiane and see you next year!

    very tidy rooms, very near to Jemaul Fena. Soffian is very helful for everything. The entrance of hotel is a bit fearful. But the next days we noticed that behind these doors the families are living.

    When we would like to do payment by credit cards, we have been advised that 4% commision is charged. This was not mentioned on booking.com page.

    Perfectly located close to the central market.

    We would suggest the staff to ask the clients to smoke on the top floor terrace. Smoking in the patio bothers the non-smoking clients, since all the rooms are facing into the patio. Paying with a credit card causes an additional 4%.

    Excellent location close to Djem El Fnaa and great for exploring the city. Very helpful staff and good breakfast.

    Quite noisy and not so much privacy as it is a small riad.
