Just returned from a four day stay at Riad Maizie with my sister. The pink room with its twin beds was perfect - a private bathroom with shower being just across the landing. Situated in the labyrinth that is the Medina it is truly advisible to get collected at the airport - I would defy anyone to find it unassisted.
Will, the manager took us to the Djemaa El Fna square so that we could orient ourselves and find our way back!
We were disappointed with the chicken, olive and preserved lemon tagine that we sampled in a local restaurant, so Will cooked for us on our last night. It was the best meal we had the whole holiday.
Breakfast at Riad Maizie will set you up for the day with its freshly made pancakes, eggs cooked whichever way you like, freshly squeezed orange juice, french bread and a selection of jams and butter. Freshly ground coffee served at whatever strength you like - perfect start to the day.
Riad Maizie is very reasonably priced at only 59 euros a night for the twin room including breakfast. The rooms are beautifully decorated in traditional Moroccan style with hand painted furniture. The courtyards and outdoor seating areas provide lots of space for relaxing after a hectic day haggling in the souk.
Marrakech is an incredible city and Riad Maizie is the perfect place to stay.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Riad Maizie is a traditional Morroccan Riad, lovingly restored by the writer Miranda Innes, which offers a tranquil and stunning base for your explorations of amazing Marrakech. Only five-minutes walk from the souks and ten from the wonders of Djemaa el Fna. Soak in the warm north-African sun up on the roof terrace, cool down by the fountain in the courtyard and eat some of the best tagine Marrakech has to offer. ... more less
