I contacted Riad Aguerzame for a room but it was fully booked. However Antoine (the owner) suggested an alternative: Dar el Masa. Bernard at Dar el Masa was very friendly and welcoming from the first e-mail I received and I felt relaxed and at home from the moment I entered the door of the riad.
The riad is situated very close to the main square and Bernard made sure I was able to find my way there and back without getting lost in the little streets. He also guided me through the souk and showed me some of the better places to buy souvenirs and gifts.
There are 5 bedrooms all very tastefully decorated in a morroccan style and very comfortable. The small pool is just what you need to refresh you after a day wandering around the city. And the roof terrace is the ideal spot to relax and enjoy the sunshine. Breakfast is a friendly occasion which includes pancakes, fruit, tea/coffee, fruit juice, bread and jams and is eaten at a large table shared with the other guests.
Bernard and Antoine were also very helpful in organising a trip to the mountains with an excellent guide.
Stay here and you will be sure to have a brilliant and memorable time in Marrakech.
