"Lovely hidden place in the Kasbah. The French/Marrocan owners keep it very clean. It is a proper kasbah house with high steps on the stairs. Staying there will give you an idea how people live in these houses. Our hosts were lovely and we got heaps of travel-, music- and food tips. A very warm home!"

Mickde from Rotterdam, December 2012

"First I want to specify that this is more of a family house than a riad. It combines in a nice way the modern facilities with the location in the middle of Kasbash Taourirt. The rooms have direct access to the terrace and the two owners are really friendly and welcoming. I appreciated that Aziz met us at the entrance of the Kasbash so we did not have to wonder around looking for the location. It as a nice experience"
