Both very smiley, helpful and attentive. The breakfasts are delicious and different every day, it is served on the terrace if warm enough. The riad...

The small room was on the ground floor "next door" it comprised of a bed and mirror that leant against the wall and that was it. No TV, no wardrobe or draws so don't bother unpacking just leave everything in the suitcase. The bathroom had a large open shower and no bath so more a shower room with a sink....

We are very disappointed about this message. But it's true that we can't please to everybody. When we read your comment (TV on the room, little street, view of medina, little swimming pool...) we think that you would have prefer an hotel in the modern district of marrakech, not a traditional guest house on the medina. There is some precisions...

Very high quality Riad - rooms were furnished to a top quality. Staff were incredibly helpful and friendly - couldn't have asked for better Breakfast was perfect 10-15 min walk to the square, close enough to walk, but also far enough away for it to be a quiet place to relax after a day's exploring Just one thing to note...

We arranged a taxi with the riad to pick us up from the airport, which is a good idea as it's a bit tricky to find until you get used to the area. We were dropped closeby to the riad and a staff member came out to meet us. We were given pastries and mint tea on arrival and Patrice...
