We weren't quite sure what to expect having booked a Riad in the centre of the Medina, but I can honestly say it was the best decision that we made on the trip. The place is absolutely fantastic and has been restored with a lot of care and attention in the original Moroccan design.
Despite being in the middle of the Medina it is an Island of peace and extremely easy to find from the Jama E Fna after yourfirst trip. Ismail who looked after us during our stay showed us the way on the first day and gave us handly pointers for our return.
The rooms are very clean, with the cleaning ladies doing a grand job every day, the air conditioning was good and the bathrooms all worked.
Finally I have to mention the fantastic attention that Ismail paid to me and my family from making the breakfast in the morning to his general advise on Marrakesh. The man works so hard it feels like he's at the place 24/7. His smile and pleasant manner were a joy to come back to after a hard days work on the tourist trial.
The Riad also provided free pickup and drop off from the airport which was a great help, especially on the way there when travelling with children.
All in all a great stay, thanks Ismail and the ladies, see you soon I hope.
