Don't expect a tree lined gravel drive approach to the Riad. This is Marrakech, and it's located within the old City walls where buildings sit cheek by jowl and accessed by tiny and confusing passages and alleys and a myriad of tiny shops selling everything you could imagine and then some !!
The unassuming front door leads through to a completely unexpected Oasis of calm and tranquility with lovely comfortable rooms around a central courtyard to die for, and a small swimming pool in which to relax and unwind.
Nothing is too much trouble for Youssef and his wife. The cook made us the most fabulous cous-cous, which we ate (accompanied by a bottle or two of local chilled wine) on the rooftop terrace.
With exception of occasional calls to prayer from the local Mosque ( hard to avoid anywhere in the City) you wouldn't know that you were in the middle of the hustle and bustle around you.
Would I stay here again?
