This was such a beautiful space tucked into a quite + serene enclave but a short walk from the hustle and bustle of the Medina and marrakech's main attractions. Each room was very comfortable with its own bathroom, mini fridge, and bathrobes :). The terrace was also beautiful.

Great sized riyad, spread over three floors including a rooftop terrace with Jacuzzi. Evening/ night time is an amazing place just to sit back and relax. Close to markets and local amenities. Cristina was really helpful and knowledgeable. She told us on places to visit and which we would be interested in (group of friends 25-26yr olds). She booked our quad biking and and entire day of activity and basically made it all extremely easy and simple for us. 100% recommend for anyone who wants to stay in an amazing riyad with someone who knows the city inside out.

This place is about as close to perfect as you'll find in Marrakech. Every room is lovely and the common spaces are really cozy. The kitchen has MORE than you'll ever need even if you just move in permanently. It has aircon, which is essential on Marrakech summer days. The roof is really nice too, but we didn't spend enough time just lounging there because our stay was short and the weather too hot! My family and I would absolutely stay in this listing again or any that Christina manages whenever we return to Marrakech and we advise you to do the same.

We traveled as a family 5 of us and used up all 4 rooms. The description of the riad is perfectly accurate. The riad is in a great location within the inner city. Each room has individual controls for air conditioning. The riad is clean, the beds comfortable and you have two lounging areas (ground floor and rooftop) that you can relax and plan your outings. When coming home from the hustle and bustle of a long day walking and discovering the Medina, you feel totally secure and at peace in this riad. Evenings are quiet and peaceful within the riad. Our hostesse Cristina is attentive, provide great insight on our surroundings and how to negotiate with the vendors. She responds to email queries promptly we could always count on her to assist us if need be. Norman.

Dear Norman, I thank you for having taken the time to write a review. Reviews are very important for us as these will help us improve our services where needed. Needless to say that your comments and compliments made our day. We thank you very much for these. I also wanted to thank you for your personal suggestion (a keyless lock) even if it is not fitting with most of our guests' expectations nor my idea of a personal welcome and service. My aim is not to "just and only" rent my riad but to answer my guests' expectations by giving them a personal service (and the personal welcome is part of it) and answer all their questions and/or queries. However, I'll keep your idea somewhere in my head. I trust you understand my view point. I wish you all the best with your Airbnb apartments. Sincerely yours, Cristina

Very beautiful place, very convenient. We arrived at afternoon, Cristina help us get a person to carry the luggageand lead us to her place. And she will explain everything you need/want to know. :) The room was spacious and the kitchen was also very useful. You could find anything you want. And you can enjoy your night In the roof garden, you can find sofas and massage pool there. Small stores all around the block or near the lane corner. Recommended 4-8 people live will be the most comfortable!

Je suis tombée amoureuse d'un pays. C' était en 1998. Un court séjour dans le Sahara marocain a eu un grand impact sur mes plans de vie. Quelques années plus tard, je suis revenue avec ma fille et depuis ces vacances là, Marrakech est devenue ma deuxième maison. Jusqu'au jour où, il y a un peu plus de deux ans, j' ai décidé d'en faire ma résidence principale. Entre ma vie actuelle et ma vie passée, l' écart est énorme. Mais je n' ai pas regretté ma décision une seule seconde. Mon souhait, à travers ma connaissance du pays, est de vous faire découvrir les beautés, les richesses, les traditions du Royaume Chérifien (le Maroc). A très bientôt, je l' espère.
