We chose this Riad because of the reviews here and some french sites. We stayed in the Suite Histoire d'O for 4 nights and paid 220 Euros a night. In retrospect we found this quite prizey, compared to other Riads and hotels. For instance you have the marvellous La Maison Arabe, 2 minutes walk away, with 20 - 30 rooms of different styles, three restaurants, a lovely pianobar, swimmingpool, outdoor sittingareas, a wonderful Spa, and complimentary shuttle and access to their closeby Golf Club - all very authentic and high quality, and secluded within a quite large space very close by, - and you are not paying much more for any more for all those services and rooms than for the rooms in the Riad Olema basically. Some rooms were even cheaper.
Although they served nice breakfast, you had to book dinner at lunchtime since the kitchen otherwise was closed in the evenings... They had a Jacuzzi on the roof that seemed nice, but that was out of order when we stayed there - also the Jacuzzi was right above our Suite, - and you could hear the motor going at times unfortunately. They had a tiny cute pool in the patio, but the owner bathed there sometimes so we felt we would intrude his privacy so we did'nt bother since he also had the room next to the pool when we stayed there...... (no further comments)
Also there was a small Hammam and some rooms for beautytreatments that you could order. I did, and was very content, but again you can get the same treatments at approx. the same prizelevel at more exclusive Riadhotels like the La Maison Arabe for instance.
I do have to give some extraordinary compliments though to Sandy (the directrise) and the service of the staff that was really wonderful! She helped us in every possible way with bookings, recommendations ecc. ecc. and was ever so serviceminded - so that made it special for us!
Other than that; nicely situated with walking distance to main sites: the Djmnaa el Fna (10 - 15 min), the Souks (10 min), Cafe Arabe (10 min), Jardin Majorelle (15 - 20 minutes) ecc ecc.
