I can't recommend this Rhiad enough - they meet you from the airport (you need that in Marrakesh its like a maze if you don't know it!), welcome you with delicious mint tea in an oasis away from the bustle of the street. Amazing breakfast, awesome help and advice for tourists and beautiful, luxurious rooms.

The riad is fantastically located 5mins walk from the main square. The staff are pleasant and the room is relatively spacious. I think... More

This riad is in a good location, a few minutes walk from the souks in the medina and around a 15 minute walk to the main square of Jemaa el Fna. The riad is prettily decorated with a lovely central courtyard and clean, comfortable rooms. Staff are friendly and helpful.
