About Nezha Cuer Amri

Since 1989, I am a tourism professional and tour operator in Brussels. I am a travel organisation manager and a specialist in the field of personalised visits to Morocco and original, off-the-beaten-track travels.

Nezha Cuer Amri purchased this guest house in 2003

Why Nezha Cuer Amri chose Medina

I was born in Fez and I grew up in a family riad, where I spent my entire childhood. While visiting the Sidi Ben Sliman Mausoleum in Marrakech, I fell in love with this house adjacent to the mausoleum. I decided to save this heritage that was going to fall apart. I quickly called upon artisans and trade people from Fez and Marrakech to renovate and consolidate it, and to preserve the authenticity of this riad. The renovations lasted for 5 years.

What makes this guest house unique

Resting and relaxing in a quiet place, a true haven of peace. The house combines tradition and authenticity in a warm and welcoming setting with majestic comfortable bedrooms and modern bedding.

Sidi Youssef suite in Riad Benslimane
average rating of 5.0 based on 2 reviews

A magical Marrakech experience.

  • 5 of 5

I HIGHLY recommend this Riad. It is an incomparable experience. The Riad has been restored to its original 17th century beauty with authentic materials for preservation of the original decor. Everything about the Riad shows careful attention to detail for a guest's comfort. Fresh bottles of cold water, clean towels every day, 1500 thread cotton sheets, fresh roses. The Riad is a tranquil oasis in the midst of a Medina teaming with energy. The breakfast is gorgeous, beautiful pastries, preserves and authentic tagine on request. The hosts (Nezha) is generous with her time and tips for experiencing the very best of Marakech....with fluent English, French and Arabic she is an amazing hostess.

Thank you Nezha for your generosity and hospitality.

authentique riad de charme et d'élégance

  • 5 of 5

Très bon accueil à l'aéroport, prise en charge parfaite avec voiture spacieuse et récente.

Trés joli riad entièrement rénové avec authenticité , la suite Sidi Youssef nous a plongé tout de suite dans l'univers marocain .

Suite propre et confortable, très bonne literie, draps en coton très agréables, salle de bain élégante avec de jolis carreaux marocains.

Petit déjeuner avec fruit frais , jus d'orange pressé maison accompagné de crèpes et différents pains avec miel et confiture.

Le propriétaire qui est un vrai professionnel du tourisme avec une grande expérience nous a recommandé un très bon guide, ainsi qu'une location de véhicule avec chauffeur très professionnel , nous sommes allés dans la montagne , mais également à Essaouira, il peut vous organiser vraiment une excursion sur mesure .

Le propriétaire connait parfaitement la ville et sélectionne avec exigence les restaurants selon le souhait du client.Ceci permet de modérer les informations, parfois péremptoires, trouvées dans les guides.

Ce riad peut être recommandé en toute confiance à des amis.
