The staff at the property were very helpful and accommodating. Mohammed was especially helpful and attended to all of our needs. I would highly recommend this hotel. The location is excellent ( 30 metres away from the main square of Jamaa el Fna). Many shops, cafes and restaurants nearby.

8/10 Very good

The Riad is a 2 min walk to the Jemma el Fnna. Close to pretty much everything. The staff are bilingual, very helpful and friendly. The room was fairly clean and basic, towels are at reception, but it does have air conditioning. Breakfast is offered on the terrace, which consists of hard boiled eggs, cheese triangles, pan chocolate, french bread, jams, coffee and fresh orange juice. For a short stay i would recommend the Hotel Cecil although it has more of a Hostel feel

6/10 Good

I booked one double room for two persons, when me and my friend check in, the guy from reception ask my name and i told him he got my reservation, he said but you just booked one person, then I immediately check my confirmation cus maybe I make mistakes, but so clear is written one room for two adults, the guys still insist I made reservations for one! After some minutes he said ok ok your reservation through Expedia, now I found your booking, I have some feeling of scam in this point! The room is tidy and nice, location is good, for this price is absolutely worth it, but the bathroom is so dirty cus there not even a garbage bin in toilet, so people throw rubbish everywhere, cleaning is obviously not frequent! Since the check in is not very pleasant i wouldn’t recommend this hotel, there’s too much way better choices in Marrakesh

2/10 Poor

Easily the worst place I have ever stayed. The beds were INFESTED with bed bugs, and I got bitten multiple times as I tried to sleep. I say tried - it is near impossible to sleep with the amount of noise. You will NOT sleep, with people shouting and making noise all night. No air conditioning in my room. Absolute hell hole.
