Riad Ajmal was the perfect place to stay - close to the centre of the action, but in a peaceful back street. As other reviewers have commented, you arrive via the hurly burly of the medina through a small door into an oasis of calm. (Do arrange a transfer from the airport, to make finding the riad easier!) We received a very warm welcome from Moustapha, who over mint tea and almond pastries helped us plan how to make the most of our very short stay. He arranged a guide for us to take us round Marrakesh; a trip to the waterfalls at Ouzoud in the Atlas Mountains (the second highest in Africa); a booking at a stylish restaurant; and we still had time to wander around this amazing city, take a hamman at the riad (great - thank you!), and just chill on the roof terrace in the sunshine. Although we enjoyed the meal we had at the restaurant (to which Moustapha kindly guided us and from which he collected us!), we would thoroughly recommend eating at the riad. Fatima's cooking is wonderful and we are missing it already! All in all, a great stay. Thank you so much to Moustapha and his fantastic team for making it so special. We had a wonderful stay.
