The riad is a new concept on me since I last went to Morocco, but about £23 per night for a room in an old house right next to the Djemma al Fna was not to be sniffed at and so it was. Not just excellent value for money, also very friendly with ample breakfasts in what looks to my... More

The hotel is a little difficult to find but we asked for directions in a restaurant nearby and the problem was solved. The room was ok, clean and quiet, in the center of marrakech medina. Good breakfast. Be careful with the receptionist advice about restaurants because he will take you to the most expensive ones.
