Authentic Riad with outstanding customer service!Posted May 13, 2015
Pros: The personal service of the manager and wife made the stay really special. Mohamed was always offering suggestions and gave very detailed directions.
Cons: Breakfast was very french style. We would have liked a hot breakfast as an option; eggs and beans - nothing too fancy.
Location: The Souk is on 5 mins walking distance and also easy access to many attractions such as the Bahia Palace, the tombs and Jemaa el Fna.
My partner and I spent 4 days at the Arabo-Andalouse - it truly made our fist visit to Marrakech a special and memorable one. The location was 5 minutes from the souk yet the Riad was situation in a quiet alley so it was perfect for us. The most remarkable point that made all the difference was the personable service and hospitality we received from manager Mohamed and his wife. No request was too much - the attention to detail and thoughtfulness made us feel extremely spoilt during our entire stay. The Riad was clean, organised, with good wifi and air-conditioning and the room was very spacious. We especially loved having a home cooked breakfast every morning on the rooftop surrounded by beautiful plants and a great view. If you're looking for an authentic Riad with a personal touch and excellent service - I would recommend the Arabo-Andalouse

Authentic Place. Personalized servicePosted Apr 23, 2015
If you want to experience authentic Marrakech at its best, stay at this Road. Old world to the core (there is no television) this place will be known for owner Paolo's attention to details and information about Marrakech, manager Mohammed Janat taking care of all nitty-gritties and Fatima's yummy breakfasts - cheese omelettes and crepes are to die for. It is very close to Medina and Jemma all Fena. Only two disappointments: they don't serve lunch or dinner and the bathrooms should have more modern amenities. While it is old world, there is a very good free WiFi in the rooms. And the air conditioning works too.

Excellent location - great servicePosted Mar 29, 2015
Location: Very well located for visiting all the sites in Marrakech.
This was our first time in Marrakech and we didn't quite know what to expect. What a great welcome we got from GPaolo and his staff. Nothing was too much trouble - even arranging for me to visit a dentist having broken a tooth while flying out! Recommendations for eating, places to visit and trips to take helpfully provided by GPaolo; and all proved reliable. Breakfast on the terrace was a delight, and we enjoyed an excellent full Moroccan meal one evening in the riad, provided by the staff. The staff took care of us to the extent of one of them waiting on the street corner - on one occasion for a couple of hours - just to make sure we got back to the riad safely at night! Helpful tips on local customs including how to handle bartering in the souks. Excellent value all round.

Ospitalità e tradizionePosted Jun 13, 2014
Pros: La cura e l'attenzione che ci hanno riservato: Gianpaolo ci ha aperto le porte di casa sua...
Location: Ottima posizione nella Medina, a poco meno di dieci minuti di cammino dalla Piazza Jemaa El Fna..facilmente raggiungibile dal taxi
Siamo state ospiti di questo Riad su consiglio di una coppia di amici che qua ha soggiornato più volte. Era la nostra prima esperienza in un Riad e siamo rimaste affascinate dalla pace e dalla tranquillità oltre che dal fascino della sua architettura. La bella terrazza solarium dove viene servita l'ottima e abbondante colazione è circondata dalle mura dell'antico Palazzo El Badi con i suoi nidi di cicogne..uno spettacolo davvero magico! Gianpaolo, il proprietario, e tutto lo staff, con Mohamed in testa, sono stati attentissimi alle nostre esigenze, si sono presi cura di noi con discrezione e ci hanno dispensato ottimi consigli e indicazioni per la nostra vacanza. Il giorno del rientro in Italia (avevamo l'aereo alle 20.30) ci è stato permesso di tenere la camera (Suite 6 con terrazzino privato) e, prima della partenza, ci hanno offerto nel patio una deliziosa merenda con tè alla menta, frutta fresca e pasticceria preparata dalle brave cuoche. Assolutamente nessun disservizio da segnalare e wifi gratuito perfettamente funzionante in tutto il Riad

Smukt æstetisk og helt igennem rene og fine værelser. Personalet var utrolig søde og behjælpelige med alt. Som børnefamilie, der ikke er meget for plastiklegepladser o.lign. var det en stor fornøjelse at kunne bo i et originalt byhus nær centrum, og som alligevel var roligt og stille i nattetimerne. Børnene kunne bruge den lille pool i hotellets lille indergård eller lege på tagterrassen på taget. Personalet og hotelejeren formåede at være vært på en helt unik og personlig måde, der gjorde vores ophold til en oplevelse i sig selv.

Great Riad - Family TravelPosted Aug 22, 2013 on Hotels
Our family of four stayed at the riad for four days during the month of August. We traveled with our two children (8 & 9) and stayed in the family suite, which was not only beautiful, but also roomy. The entire hotel was immaculate (even the bathroom in our room was beautiful & clean). Our room also had air conditioning and wifi. Since we were there in August I just want to point out that the hotel has a plunge pool (although small, we were very grateful for it!) The raid was close enough to the main square to walk, but far enough to have a quiet's night's sleep. Also, we were able to do laundry for very cheap. A large laundry bag cost us about 200 dirhams ($25). A great breakfast (including fresh fruit, coffee, tea, croissants, fresh bread, jam, etc..) was served beside the pool every morning. Mohammed attended to our every need and made us feel like family. The raid would not have been the same without the attentiveness of the staff.

Traditionelles Riad mit außgezeichnetem ServicePosted Apr 2, 2013
Pros: der ausgezeichnete Service
Location: Fußläufig ist alles zu erreichen. Das Hotel liegt in der Mellah, nur ca. 7 Minuten vom El Fna entfernt
Sehr schönes, liebevoll gepflegtes Riad, das marrokanisches Flair besitzt. Hier wird einem jeder Wunsch von den Augen abgelesen und man gibt einem wertvolle Tipps für die Erkundung von Marrakesch und auch Tagestouren außerhalb. Alles wird einem organisiert, sofern man es denn will. Hier fühlt man sich wie Zuhause. Auf der Dachterasse kann man entspannt das reichhaltige Frühstück genießen. Unser Zimmer war eine Suite, die wie es in den meisten Riads üblich ist, kein Fenster besaß. Was uns aber nicht gestört hat. Wer auf der Suche nach einer traditionellen Unterkunft ist, sollte sich das Riad nicht entgehen lassen. Tipps: Die Herboristerie Palais El Badia, an der und auch anderen Gewürzhändlern man immer vorbeikommt, zocken einen richtig ab. Die Riadmitarbeiter kaufen lassen und über das Hotel buchen.

Well situated as most attractions within walking distance. Well equipped rooms with storage space and a mini safe. Missed reading lamps though. Nice roof terrace. Very friendly and helpful staff, always at your service.

Family hospitalityPosted Mar 25, 2013 on Hotels
We - a Danish couple - stayed a week in the first floor room and enjoyed from the first day the most kindly hospitality from Mohammed and the lovely ladies in the kitchen. We were treated as family and if we had questions or a problem occurred - Mohammed were there to solve it! The riad is nice, clean and quite, and perfect situated just next door to the Badi Palace ruins. You find the lovely Place de Ferblantier with the recommended Koseybar around the corner and you can stroll to Fna and the souqs in less than 10 minutes. We enjoyed the beautiful architecture of the well maintained riad, the roof terrace, the breakfast and not least the the friendly " Hello - Ca Va?" when ever we came "home". We speak only French un petit peu and Arabic sway sway, so we were pleased that Mohammed could help in English. This was our first Marrakech experience. We will love to come back. Kjeld And Lene
