Riad Ajmal is a tranquil haven amid the madness of the Medina and Marrakech. It has an excellent location inside the medina walls not far from the Bab Doukkala gate Our room was very comfortable - especially the bed. The shower ws always hot and there were towels,robes and slippers provided. (Along with shower gel and hairdryer.) It was lovely and cool in the bedroom away from the heat (the average temperature was 30 whilst we were there). It could be a little noisy; hearing other guests come and go - probably to due to the Riad's layout - but nothing to spoil your stay in any way. The whole Riad was beautifully clean with authentic decoration. The roof top was particularly relaxing and we spent 2 or 3 days just lazing in the sun with a book, fresh coffee and the chirping of birds. Our host Mustapha was very helpful and had organised transfers to and from the Airport - which we highly recommend. He also arranged a trip to Essaouira for us. The 2 maids were really friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfasts (served from 8:30 to 10:00am) were fresh and wholesome consisting of fresh fruit juices, yoghurt, fresh fruit, bread, croissants, cheese and fresh coffee (mmmm forgot to ask what was added to the coffee - either cinnamon or cumin?) but very delicious! We also had an evening meal at the Riad which was very reasonably priced - we chose a traditional Tagine of rabbit and vegetables along with Morroccan salad. I would defintely recommend this Riad due the friendly welcome and service and the location.
