Recently stayed at this Riad with my son and had a wonderful experience. Paolo, the owner arranged a taxi upon request to pick us up at the airport and therefore we did not have to waste time trying to find the place.
The Riad itself is very beautiful and approximately 10 minutes to Djema Le Fna, It is located in one of the many alleyways in the Medina and when you see the entrance, you would wonder if you were in the right place. Be rest assured that once the door is opened, it is as if you are in a different world. We stayed in the Gold Suite, on the first floor and it was very spacious, clean, nicely decorated in Moroccan style and very comfortable. It overlooked the Courtyard as well. The layout is very good and it is exactly how it looks on their website. The bathroom was also very clean, spacious, with toiletries and fresh towels provided everyday. The staff were exceptional especially Smael, who made sure that we were comfortable, had everything we needed and served us breakfast everyday. He was very friendly, helpful and nothing was too much trouble for him! Maria too was nice, and although did not really speak English, always had a smile on her face. Breakfast was very good and plentiful - Crepe, Bread, Omelette, Cake, home made Yoghurt, Tea, Coffee, Moroccan Mint Tea and freshly squeezed Orange Juice. Mohammed was helpful and arranged for a very nice driver (Adil) to take us on a private tour to the Atlas Mountains.
Please note that the rooms are left open for the day after once the cleaner finishes for those who are used to having a proper door that can be locked. I was a bit apprehensive initially as well but I can assure you that it is perfectly ok and all your things will be safe. There is a Safe in the room if you want one but I did not use it at all and we stayed there for a week and were sorry to leave. On the last day, Paolo did not let me pay for the taxi to the Airport and said it was on the house! I highly recommend this Riad and will stay there again the next time I visit Marakech. I will also recommend it to Friends and Family. If you want the real experience of the city, I would advise that you stay here and you will be amazed at the level of service!
