Guestbook comments from the owner

Khadija, la princesse du riad en a fait un palais pour nous.

Ses bons plats ont été un festin digne des plus grands gourmets.

Sa bonne humeur, son humour, son dévouement, sa disponibilité ont rendu ce séjour très agréable et nous nous sommes sentis ici comme à la maison avec l’aide de Mostapha.

Dear Philip,

I am writing to thank you for the amazing hospitality I received from Khadija and Mustapha. I can categorically say that it was one of the most pleasant stays I have had. Khadija was very accommodating and her cooking was exquisite. Mustapha was very inviting and respectful, a very helpful and well mannered gentleman indeed. I'd like to thank you for our lovely stay, all the best from our family to yours.

a nice and quite "Oasis" in the middle of the medina

  • 4 of 5

we liked to stay in your riad. the interior-design is very individual. it is good, that every sleeping room is connected with a bathroom. and it was nice, that we had the transfer from airport to the riad included. Mostapha is a nice guy, who understands, what the tourists need.

when we came back to the riad, we found it cleened and well. that was nice.

beakfast and lunch inside of the riad we didn`t like and a person, who ist any time in the house would not have been necessary for us.

Owner's Response: Nous sommes heureux d'apprendre que vous ayez apprécié la maison et tous les services que nous proposons. Vous semblez apprécier les conseils avisés de M., et aimer trouver une maison propre en rentrant, mais en même temps semblez déplorer la présence de personnel. (Sauf erreur de traduction). Si vous louez une maison sans le personnel, cela s'appelle une location meublée et dans ce cas toutes les charges incombent au locataire (courses, ménage cuisine, transfert aéroport). Toutes ces notions sont bien expliquées avant signature en Français ou en Anglais autant sur l'annonce du site que dans des documents très détaillés que nous transmettons à nos futurs vacanciers avant le séjour. Malheureusement tout le monde ne les lis pas. Le concept d'une maison d’hôtes réside justement dans le fait que le personnel doit être sur place. (C'est la loi). De plus, ce qui fait le succès de notre maison c'est justement la cuisine marocaine que propose K. et l'âme qui y réside du fait de la présence de notre personnel. Et cela, croyez moi, nous n'avons pas envie de nous en passer.

Merveilleuse semaine

  • 5 of 5

Ce que nous avons écrit sur le livre d'or en partant :

"C’était notre premier séjour au Maroc et nous avons passé une merveilleuse semaine à Marrakech. Les marocains sont adorables et très accueillants.

Quant au riad, quelle merveille notamment grâce à Khadija.

Merci pour tout Khadija, ta cuisine excellente, tes plats succulents, ton sourire, ta bonne humeur, ta patience pour nous apprendre quelques mots d’arabe. Tu as été aux petits soins pour nous et nous t’en remercions chaleureusement.

Et merci à Mostapha pour son organisation sans faille, c’était une somme de moments merveilleux."

Nous avons passé un très très bon séjour. :)
