Apart from Marrakech being a truly wonderful city, when we arrived at the Riad, James (Who becomes your new best friend) is beyond helpful and accommodating, making you feel, at the end of your trip, that you are simply staying with friends (but friends who make you amazing breakfasts served on the terrace, mint teas and smuggle you in beers on request!) Our room (The olive room) was perfectly sweet, the bathroom was like showering in a plush cave if you can imagine that, extremely clean, powerful shower, comfortable bed with lovely linen and thick duvets. Staff are always around and are very helpful in booking guided tours (Ask for Tashvin - Highly recommended) trips and even walking you through the Sooks so you don't get lost and picking you up from restaurants. We will definitely go back there and I would also take my toddler as the Riad was family friendly. You wouldn't be disappointed with this quiet haven in the middle of the madly fantastic Marrakech!
- 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
