Down a tiny alleyway, where builders are working, you'd have no idea what lay behind that wooden door at 1st glance! We contacted the owner, Paolo, a week or so before our trip and free transport from the airport was arranged. We were settled into our suites in this beautiful, individual Riad and were the only people there for 2 nights, so we truly felt spoilt, especially by Ishmail, who looked after us like our own personal Butler during our stay. We also had a lovely meal at the Riad on our 1st night. Paolo walked us to the main road and gave us directions and once you have your bearings, it is very easy and safe to get around. Everything is walking distance from the Riad if you stay within the medina and you can easily cab or take a horse drawn carriage to other sights like Morjorelle Gardens. We can also recommend La Maison Arabe for a special meal and a wonderful setting. Kozybar is lovely for a sundowner. We also used the Hammam 'Les Bains de Marrakech' - sheer luzury! The Jewish quarter is also very interesting. Be warned that you'll be advised that different routes are closed or the way to the El Badi Palace is that way, then left, then right... all with the intention of sending you via their shop... but we found it all light hearted and without the hard sell. All in all a great stay and the Riad surpassed our expectations.
