We thought it only fitting that we should finish with a tagine accompanied by some Meknes rose. We strolled back through the busy square which had sprung to life as the sun dipped.

Having stayed as long as we could at the restaurant we decided to just head for the train station. On the way we realised we were actually quite close to Starbucks which was quickly deemed a much nicer place to wait out the day than the train station. Surprisingly it was one of the nicer Starbucks coffees I have had which was probably due to the fact that they had flat whites on the menu.

We met Abi and Gillian there at 18:00 and we pulled a huge line of tables together outside the front of the restaurant.

Historical Traveler Reviews Riad Yasmine Marrakech
We stayed at Riad Yasmine for 6 nights, and it more than exceeded our expectations! On request, the riad arranged our transfer from the airport. The entrance to the riad is on a busy street, and on first arrival we almost missed it, such is its unassuming nature. Immediately upon entry, we were struck by the remarkable contrast between the hustle and bustle of the outside streets, and the calm, tranquil ambience of the riad.
Stayed at Riad Yasmine for 6 nights and cannot rate it highly enough. Rooms are great, the roof terrace lovely, the price is excellent value, but the highlight for me was the service. Michel & Annane (sp?) run a tight ship. Nothing is too much for them & their staff, and everything is done with a genuine friendliness and humour that many a luxury hotel chain could learn from. A special mention for Aissa (sp? again), the night porter, who is a charming host for fireside chats on the colder nights.
We booked our trip Marrakech a bit last minute (as usual). We based our choice on reviews from Trip Advisor and we weren't dissapointed!
What a fantastic trip and what a perfect place to stay!!
Great little Riad oasis from the hustle and bustle outside
The riad Yasmin is a lovely riad the owner and staff ( There are lots of them ) can not do enough to make your stay comfortable.It is in the BabTaghzout area of the medina which is about 10min walk to the souks and you do get to see the real marrakesh.Good value at 100euro per night b&b.
We've just returned from a 3 night stay at the Riad Yasmine. It's a really beautiful Riad hidden away in the back streets on the Medina. The owner and all of the staff were incredibly friendly and all of the guests we spoke to were similarly impressed. The streets outside the Riad are mad and have a medieval feel to them (apart from all the crazy mopeds and cars). To enter the Riad you walk through a small but decorative doorway and it's like entering another world. It's really peaceful and calm inside and all you can hear are the birds singing. In terms of location it is about a 5 minute walk to the Marrakech museum and main Souks. Expect to get lost nearly every time you leave the door on foot. From the Museum it's another 10 mins walk through the Souks to the main square. We tended to explore on foot but usually took the lazy option of a taxi back to the Riad. It's only about 50m from a Taxi rank which is very handy. Nearly every taxi we used cost us 20 Dirham (less than £1.50) and we over paid massively but 'Vingt' was the limit to my french. The owner of the Riad was very helpful in helping us choose and book some good restaurants. On the final night we ate in the Riad and had a fantastic meal cooked by his mother in law. We had the dining area/lounge with to ourselves and the full attention of the waiter. It was a special end to a really nice short break. Roger & Jules from Milton Keynes
Perfect relaxing retreat. There's only 6 rooms so my girlfiend and I practically had the place to ourselves. The roof terrace was great for sunbathing. The Riad is about 15 mins walk to the main square but very close to the Souks. It's run by a charming French couple and the mother in law is the cook - former chef to royalty. The breakfast is fine, great orange juice and the evening meal is really good - they set up tables around the pool and the food is great and not intrusive only if there are the 2 of you.
How fortunate were we! We booked to stay at the Riad Yasmine, although we could find no feedback from any previous guests. The Riad is a true Oasis in the Bab Taghzoute region of Marrakesh, to the north of the Medina, about 20 minutes walk from through the Souks to the Jemaa el Fna. We discovered the Cafe D'epices on the Rhaba Kdima, a well placed watering hole on our journeys back and forth to the Riad. One of the many briliant places to sit and watch the world go by.
A Delightful Place To Stay
We spent 4 nights at the Riad Yasmine in June 2006 staying in the Yasmine Suite. The accomodation is a traditional Moroccan riad, with a dining area, seating around the courtyard and a fine roof terrace. The staff were very helpful and friendly and they have a new English-speaking member of staff who is keen to learn more and enjoyed speaking with us. The French owners were very accomodating and their dog is very sweet! The riad is situated to the north of the Medina about a 20 minute walk to La Place and, bearing in mind the mayhem going on just around the corner is a very quiet and serene place to enjoy Marrakesh from. I would recommend Riad Yasmine to anyone.
