    no bedspreads or curtains in our room, very strange. Not a great experience all round. there are much better places to stay...

    It's a very nice, old house, traditionally furnished. The rooms are quite small, but very convenient in the way everything is placed. The common space (very small pool, roof top terrace) are a great place to hang out. The breakfast was nice and quite mixed. The staff was amazing and not pushy like the majority of the locals we met. I gave for comfort and locaton only good for reasons explained in the "-" section.

    The location is not well mapped. It's actually in the first side street and then at the end of the side street. The only restriction to comfort was that we did not have a key to the front door. Apparently this is common in Marrakech, but we felt (especially when arriving after hours) like disturbing, but it was just our perception, the night watch was always friendly.

    An excellent riad with a charming host and great facilities. Very stylish, the rooms were beautifully furnished. The location though was very tricky to find, so I'd recommend a map or else you'll be assisted by 'local help'. Apart from that, its an excellent hotel I'd wholeheartedly recommend

    Cosy little riad in the old Kasbah. Clean, well decorated, silent and intimate. Rooftop terrace is definitely a plus. What made it so special compared to others? definitely a devoted staff, Omar and Khadidja, who helped without limit (...and without asking for tips). No pressure to contract trips with them..

    Finding the place reminded us of the movie "Labyrinth"... Call to be picked up at the wall. Space may be too tight in the smallest room. The owner didn't seem that friendly when he turned up a couple of times..

    The room was small but nice, no bathroom privacy as the shower is in the room with no door or curtain and the water didn't stay hot. We didn't have a key for our room, when we asked we were told none of the rooms have keys…quite strange but it was ok and nothing went missing. A nice roof terrace.

    The lady from the riad puts a little bit of pressure to do the trips and hammam she suggests and seems a little irritated when you decline them. She also seems to speak good english until it comes to prices…

    Staff was correct and tried to be helpful to me. I was feeling poorly and the Guy on duty went out of his way to get me some food.

    I was the only one staying there, which felt a bit awkward.

    As traditional riads go this one is very pretty indeed with big enough rooms, heated in winter and air-conditioned in summer. I wasn't very keen on location, it is quite difficult to find and despite it being 7min walk from the kasbah mosque and Saadian tombs it is not a pretty walk. It gets even worse if you want to walk to Jemma el Fna (15 min if you know where you are going...). Very dissapointed by staff. The lady running it despite a very ladylike demeanour sells is to you like a Berber in a souk, I was heavily pressurised to use a hammam of her choice (which I didn't) and her henna lady (who is very expensive and not very good. The design is mediocre and 5 days later the henna is almost gone. Good ones last 2 weeks.) I was told to pay half way through my stay (why???) and told of for leaving the riad too early (I was going to Quarzazate for a day, had to catch a minibus at 7.30). On the whole plenty of better places in this price range.

    The people who worked there ( Khadija and Omar ) were very nice. They really make you feel like home. The Riad looked good. There was hot water a nice breakfast. Its a 18 min walk to Jama3 l fna ( the big square)

    Looks pretty.

    Rooms could do with being a bit cleaner. Felt uncomfortable at times like we weren't supposed to be there, staff could've been more willing to help and not be rude when you don't go with their recommendations because it is a rip off! The room smelled really bad. I'm really disappointed as to the real reason why I booked this Riad was because of the good reviews people gave to the hotel manager/owner Khadeja, in our case she was very unwelcoming and unhelpful. We was made to wait an hour for our rooms to be ready but on our last day Khadeja came up to remind us we need to vacate the room by 12pm! Location was not the best and breakfast was little and bad.
