This Riad was an absolute gem in the craziness of the Medina. 100% reliable hot water showers, comfortable beds, clean quiet rooms, lovely roof top terrace, huge breakfasts, free laundry (yes, free!) and great location (5 minute easy walk through a fascinating labyrinth and entertaining souqs to the Djaama el-Fna). But the best part of the Riad was Sidi Omar himself (and his family who also helped with the running of the hotel). He met us at Marrakech airport and was nothing but polite, friendly and super helpful from that point until we left. He was the best host we could have ever ask for and arranged our whole 5 day trek, for a reasonable price, in the High Atlas.
Another thing to note is that Sidi Omar and his family are locals that have converted their home into a guest house. So by supporting Riad Sidi Omar, you are supporting the local Moroccon communities (a lot of other Riads have been bought out and turned into guesthouses by foreigners).
If either my partner Peter and I are back in Marrakech, we will definitely stay in Riad Sidi Omar again!
