We had the pleasure of staying at two of the Angsana Riads Collection in the heart of the Medina, walking distance to Jamma El Fna square and the world-famous Marrakech souk. At our first arrival, we were greeted by our gracious and hospitable hosts, Abdellah and Mohammed, who were delightful and did everything they could to assure we enjoyed our stay in their care. They even provided a cell phone in case we got lost in the city or needed translation from a merchant.
The decor is lovely traditional Moroccan design; the indoor spa, pools and gardens are beautiful and serene; the rooms are comfortable and clean and the roof terraces are a relaxing place to have tea or wine after a day of exploring. I suggest staying at their main Riad, Si Said, as it's the best one and where the restaurant is located where you get complimentary breakfast. We also stayed in one of the other ones right around the corner, Bab Firdaus, which was also nice but we preferred Si Said. As I said, the staff are all extremely nice and accommodating and truly make you feel welcomed.
We enjoyed our stay so much we convinced two other couples with whom we were traveling to move there for the last part of our time in Marrakech. We would definitely stay here again the next time we visit.
