Just spent 3 Magical nights at Riad Lorsya. I am a travel agent from Australia and can definitely recommend this Riad. I know why it's so popular with Aussies because it's simply gorgeous and in a fabulous location close to the souks and very close to the main square. We stayed on the first floor in a duplex suite which was lovely. It was very hot in Marrakech but the room stayed cool. We were very lucky that other people staying in the Riad checked out the day we arrived and we had the whole place to ourselves for 3 nights it was so romantic. The staff and manager are very polite and friendly and speak good English. The manager really likes Aussies and we had some nice chats over coffee he was very helpful giving us maps of the city what to see and do and recommended some good argan oil shops in the souk. They were happy to provide tea or coffee anytime and we enjoyed that on the balcony outside the suite. We swam in the pool everyday as the water was cool and refreshing after being out in the heat of Marrakech. We enjoyed the simple but ample breakfasts and really enjoyed our dinner at the Riad a delicious chicken with lemon targine with cous cous and Moroccan salads. Our room had the bedroom on a mezzanine level the bed was comfy and they made up our room everyday replacing our towels etc. please note no TV but we had free wifi and it was actually quite fast so we weren't to bothered without a TV. There was always plenty of hot water and they supplied lovely shampoo and conditioner with agan oil our hair was so soft. The roof top area was very nice with sun lounges and views over the medina. At night the Riad was gorgeous when its Moroccan lights came on it was so romantic. Would definitely recommend contacting the Riad to pre arrange airport transfers. We did this and they met us at the airport and then dropped us and our luggage at the entrance to the medina. In was really late at night and very funny following an old man pushing our luggage in a cart through the maze of streets to the riad. Please make sure you have the 20 dirhams to tip the poor man for having to carry your luggage all that way. The return transfer was easy too and remember to tip the lovely old man with your luggage on the return.
Would definitely recommend this Riad and can't wait to come back next year.
