Riad Idra is not accessible by car, so when we first arrived, our taxi parked about a 5-10 minute walk away, and our luggage was swooped up by a kid who we had to hope was leading us in the right direction (and who, of course, did not like the tip we gave him). After a long day's journey, we arrived at Riad Idra's door feeling really exhausted, both physically and mentally.
Karine and Omar greeted us with smiles and a very warm welcome. We were invited to sit in the pleasant, quiet courtyard and have some tea and sweets before heading to our room. This was just the unwinding we needed.
Our room, Ahlam, was really pretty and peaceful. We had a nice view of the courtyard and all the amenities we could want -- hair dryer, toiletries, slippers, robes, water, and another tray of Moroccan goodies. Everything was very clean, and it was suitably spacious for two people, too.
A beautiful breakfast on the rooftop terrace was the perfect way to start each day, and we loved coming back to Idra every day after the bustle of the medina. It's in a great location for exploring the medina -- central, and after the first time or two, it's easy to remember how to find it (not to be taken for granted in the medina!)
The staff were excellent -- there as soon as you needed them, but happy to leave you on your own when you were relaxing. Everyone was friendly and attentive.
We stayed in four different hotels in Morocco, and Riad Idra was our favorite. I would recommend it for anyone staying in Marrakech medina.
