We stayed at Riad Anyssates for a week. It is located in the middle of the hustle of the medina but when you walk in, it feels like you have entered a quiet oasis! Paradise! We stayed in 2 of their rooms. The first was on the terrace. Beautiful! When we walked out of the room we were surrounded by panoramic views of the city, It was extremely quiet and CLEAN! We then moved to the room by the pool which was also beautiful and quiet! The staff at the riad are some of the nicest, personable staff I have ever met at a hotel. When we arrived, Nicholas took the time to sit down with us and go over the map, recommending places to see and what paths to take. He also took the time to make a reservation at a very nice restaurant for us for Valentine's Day. The little touches that he added to the hotel made it one of the best places we have ever stayed in, He speaks English fluently and knows the area backwards. He was always helpful and available if we needed him. Patrick was equally helpful and always there to answer questions. We ate breakfast every morning on the roof top looking over the city. Everyday there was something different in the breakfast along with fresh yoghurt, fruit, and baguette with an assortment of jams and fresh orange juice. We ate at the hotel 2 nights and the food was amazing! We had 3 course meals by the pool that were delicious! Best tagines that we had in Marrakech! We also had the hammam at the hotel that I HIGHLY recommend followed by an hour massage that was wonderful! They booked us a day in the mountains and desert with mule rides up to the villages which was phenomenal and I would recommend to anyone wanting a day out. There are little touches that set this Riad apart- the friendly personable staff, the cleanliness, the robes in the room, the unique decorations, really set apart this Riad. We had a few glasses of wine by the pool and they always brought hors d'oeuvres which was a nice touch. If we didn't finish the bottle, they would gladly keep it for us for the next day. The Riad is located in the medina about a 15 minute walk to the square. There are taxis close by, although we never used them. It is located in a very safe area and the locals around are very friendly. I will be coming back to Riad Anyssates and can not recommend it enough!
