Lovely quiet RiadPosted Feb 19, 2014
Pros: Close to the souks, quiet and comfortable. Taxis can get right to the door.
Location: Close to the souks and we walked to Majorelle Garden from here - no further than walking to the centre.
Very helpful and attentive staff. We arrived at 9pm and a delicious 3 course meal was cooked specially for us. The Riad organised a taxi to and from the airport for us. Breakfast was simple but delicious and very filling - bread, different types of pancakes each morning, pastries or cake, honey, jam and cheese spread, orange juice and coffee. The bed was very comfortable.

Very atmospheric.Posted Jan 1, 2014
When the taxi dropped us we thought we were in the wrong place but once through the flat iron door it was beautiful inside.A great combination of the exotic and the comfortable. Rooms were large , historic and decorated stylishly and all the plumbing worked.Staff really helpful phonong and booking places for us.Breakfast good.Hotel in great location. 15 Minutes walk from main square and interesting things to see immediately get outside the door

An experiencePosted Apr 5, 2013
Pros: The cool courtyard
Cons: The plumbing
Location: North Medina, Dark, noisy and dangerous outside, my bag was snatched by a motorcyclist yards from the front door. No police to be seen.
Antique and antiquated. If you want to be in the dirty dangerous Medina of Marrakech, then this is probably as good as you get. Nice tiling, good breakfast, helpful staff whose English is rudimentary. Plumbing a bit rocky; faint smell of sewage throughout. Only 4 TV channels, none of them in English. Muezzin wakes you up at 530am, but that is everywhere. Very hard to find your way around this location. The streets twist and turn, bear no resemblance to the map, and street names are rarely marked.

Unique Riad/Medina atmosphere - but not for allPosted Mar 29, 2013
Cons: Noise outside and fumes from scooters
The Medina is a cultural shock if you have not been there before and therefore first impressions are negative. The front of the Riad is just a door in a dinghy street, but an oasis inside. Staff try to be helpful. Alcohol free, but a basic buffet breakfast is welcome. Riad spoilt by irritating faults in bedroom - eg shower fittings make operation a challenge. So called swimming pool is really for decoration (2 strokes and you would be at the other end. Roof lounge scruffy with interesting wiring. If you want to be in the Medina much to recommend, but hotel in 'new city' would provide hotel most would be used to, and away from the noise and fumes of the Medina

Fabulous Riad and amazing staffPosted Mar 10, 2013
Pros: The staff and the decor
Cons: From the outside it doesn't look much, but as soon as you step through the door it's a little oasis.
Location: In the Medina, around 15min walk to the square and souks or 2 minutes in a cab.
Fantastic place and great staff. This little Riad is lovely. There are only 8 rooms, so it feels very intimate and cosy, however the court yard and lounge/dinning area make it feel spacious and roomy. The rooms are lovely and decorated beautifully. Plenty of hot water and good power from the shower. The Riad is in the Medina area and around 15 minutes walk to the square. We were two females staying here and it is perfectly safe area and easy to find (once you get you bearings!). I would recommend arranging a pick up from the airport when you arrive. If you ate arriving in the evening on your first day it is worth booking dinner at the Riad. It is more expensive than some of the local restaurants but worth it for the ease and the food is yummy! The best thing about this Riad though is the staff, they are total gems. They are very helpful, friendly and go out of their way to help and really made the stay special. Well worth a visit!

Amazing staff, great location, lovely RiadPosted Mar 3, 2013
Pros: Staff, staff and staff
Staff were amazing. Made us feel special. Food brilliant home cooking, reasonably priced. Lovely roof terrace with great views( and two tortoise we were aloowed to feed lettuce to) nice room with amazing bathroom. We visited in February and room was heated and comfortable. Courtyard was very pretty and peaceful. This was a lovey Riad, with pretty architecture, clean traditional rooms and good food. Short walk from Jemaa el Fna through the souks. Despite scare mongering it is possible to learn you way around fantastic Marrakech medina within days. We loved the Riad, however, it was the Riad staff that made our stay trully amazing. A huge thank you to all of them. They were really special (and we've stayed in plenty of hotels and guest houses around the world)

Highly recommendedPosted Jan 5, 2013
Pros: The room was wonderful
Location: Just to the north of the souks but right in the centre of the medina action
The staff were amazing. Very friendly and accommodating. The food was great and the selection of wine and beers was good. My only gripe would be that it was sometimes hard to get any hot water from the shower. Other than that I would truly recommend the Riad Yasmine. We had a wonderful time there.

Lovely place to stay, recommend :-)Posted Dec 7, 2012
Pros: helpful staff, great brekkie, lovely ornate Riad
Cons: Needed just a couple of fixes - electric heater in room and shower
Location: Marrakesh is interesting/crazy and very friendly all at the same time. The Riad is close to the market which leads on to D'Jamma el Fna a mustsee!
Lovely place to stay, great welcome, helpful staff and friendly staff and a cracking breakfast. Just a couple of gripes: the Electric heater was loud and needed replacing and the base of the shower dripped making the bathroom floor wetter than it should be. Gripes aside I would definately stay there again/consider hiring the whole venue for a larger group. Would love to return in warmer weather to hang out on the roof terrace.

This hotel exceeded our expectations. Very tranquil, relaxing environment. It was like staying in someone's lovely home. The staff is so gracious and the food is very good. Great location for souk shopping.
