I have stayed in many mid range hotels in the medina over the past thirty five years, but this is the best one I've stayed in. We stayed for three nights in January 2017 and had a lovely time here. We were booked for a twin room and when we arrived (late at night) they gave us a larger quad...

Period Riad dating from 1929, conveniently located just a few metres from Jamaa el Fna. However, the property looks like it hasn't been decorated since 1929. Also Jamaa el Fna is painfully noisy all day and through the early hours of the morning: a constant cacophony of loud drumming and wailing sounds as if it comes from the hotel room...

Great location within walking distance of most attractions. The reception staff were fantastic and couldn't have been more helpful. Rooms basic but more than adequate as I don't travel to spend time on hotel rooms. Breakfast on the roof top terrace was a bonus. Only downside is that because the rooms are arranged around an inner courtyard (typical of Marrakesh...

At the reception Mohammed and Rashid were very helpful! Breakfast on terrace was great in the Moroccan sun! Located right next to Jemaa El Fnaa market so was really perfect. It was a little noisy at times in the night because you live right next to the market but it's not so much noise to wake you up. Everyone leaves...

Although the location is good, it is it worth it. Just walk through the Medina and you'll find better and cheaper riads. The staff was not helpful and didn't speak English. Wifi didn't work. No towels or toilet paper before we asked. Breakfast was not very good. It was supposed to be served at 7 at the trade (that's cold...

this is a nice hotel.....clean and quaint...lobby( atrium) has a very tall palm tree growing up through the center reaching far above the rooftop restaurant...rooms are arranged in 3 floors around the atrium...very narrow stairs. Just a nice place to stay at a very inexpensive price if you want to be near the souk action just off the jmaa el...

Been here a few times and each time its been ok. The guys at the reception are really friendly and helpful. The hotel is clean and has a balcony which is lovely for soaking up the sun. The only downsides are that because its so close to the square noise can be heard even till midnight. Also the hot water...

Just a few steps away from the Square (that means you can hear the loudspeakers and/or musics from the Square at night in your room), this hotel offers simple and clean rooms. Simple breakfast and reliable hot showers (if you take showers earlier than everyone!) and wifi. Don't expect housekeeping if you stay for more than one night and (dry)...

Comfortable room, immaculately clean, comfortable bed and adequate and clean bathroom. Location is key ... You are 100 meters at most from Jamaa el-Fna square. There, the Café Glacier is an excellent place for breakfast, the coffee being almost historic! Delightful staff at the hotel, air conditioning which works and Wifi in the main reception area (yes, it would be...
