My husband and I stayed here after falling across the Riad on the internet. We were not disappointed! Michele and Grant are the perfect hosts - they make you feel like Riad Assakina is your home from home, sharing their knowledge of all things Marrakesh including where to shop for specific things, where to eat and what sites to visit and when (timings are key to avoid the coach trips full of people!). And I seriously don't have enough praise for their staff who were warm, welcoming and always ready to help whenever you saw them. If only every place you stayed had staff like these wonderful people. Breakfast was lovely, served on the terrace or indoors if it was a wee bit chilly outdoors, and we were always home by 4pm so we didn't miss out on our mint tea with freshly baked cake on the roof terrace. Just bliss! Don't be put off by the Riad's location (we did wonder where we were being taken when we were lead down a small alleyway...!) - it is absolutely perfectly situated south of Jemaa el Fna square and only a 10 minute leisurely (if you ignore the motorbikes...) amble from the souks. Once you see the hustle and bustle and noise of the main square and all the souks I promise you will be bowled over by (and grateful for!) the peace and tranquility (not to mention cleanliness and wonderful smells) you will find inside the doors at Riad Assakina. While it was a great experience looking round the city, it was an absolute pleasure coming back to the paradise that this Riad offers you! Thank you Michele, Grant and the team for making our first child-free break in 2 years a truly relaxing and memorable experience. We would certainly recommend Riad Assakina to anyone wanting to visit Marrakesh, and would not look at anywhere else to stay should we venture back here!
