Booked this holiday via teletext with Truly Tra vel. Plane delayed for an hour with tRyan Air. The Riad is in the heart of Marrekech (Kasbah area prounouced Kisbah) not a very affluent area but if you want to see the real Marrakech this is the area to stay. On arrival which was about 11pm greeted with mint tea and a bite to eat. Anna who runs the place really does make you feel at home with a generous breakfast in the morning. There is intermittent water supply when you need a shower but getting up early helps we only encountered this problem once when we got up a bit late.. Towels are provided but recommend you take your own also bed sheets not changed everyday, hence 4star bed very comfortable and would use this Riad again. No T.V or tea making facilities, however when you have lovely weather and so much to see who needs T.V and as for Tea facilities this is available in the numerous cafes on the way to the market mind you mainly mint tea beaware can be addictive. Anna also would advice on what to pay in the souks (markets ) for items. Good tip was giving to us by a couple just a day before we were leaving who adviced us next time we should go to the Artisan Ensemble to purchase items can be cheaper than the souks. If you have time visit the Atlas mountains and Ben Youseff Madressa pronouced (bin youseff Madressa). We managed to get around without a tour guide even thou it was our first time. If you want to stay in a 'No Frills Riad' this is the one to stay at home from home and a warm welcome. Most of the places we visited were within walking distance only to go to the Jardiners menara and Jardin Majorelle did we use a taxi. Took a leisurely walk back from the Jardiner menara to the souks. Would reccommend walking to place if you can, you get to see the place better and also see things you may have missed.
