This was chosen as it was within the Medina walls of Marrakesh and was booked as part of a deal website offer. Sometimes you dont expect to much of offers and are glad to just have a nice place to rest in the evenings on your city break, this exceeded all expectations and was a genuine haven in the midst of a bustling city, within a short walk to the main attractions and central marketplace. On arrival we were greeted by Kamal, a young chap who was one of the nicest most accommodating people you could hope to meet, he sat us down with a lovely mint tea, brought a map and showed us precisely how to get around, where banks were etc etc. The rooms are on two floors above a central small courtyard which has a small plunge pool, whilst the top floor terrace is a superb place to have the included breakfast (lovely coffee by the way) or catch the sun, and even perhaps some shade or read in the cushioned berber tent. Babette the owner is exceptional with feedback we troubled her with quite a few emails before arriving and all were answered superbly and she was lovely also when we were there. Accommodation is very nice, and air conditioned, with plenty of warm water, lovely bedlinen and coloured glass and Moroccan lamps adding to the atmosphere. The deal we purchased included an authentic Moroccan tagine meal which was superb and as a result we are now regularly eating cinnamon oranges after our meals back home. One thing... wait to book trips, for example Kamal has an immense knowledge of the Ourika Valleys and area, if you want (we recommend highly you do) to go into the Atlas Mountains, Kamal is a superb guide with extensive knowledge and can arrange a very very economical trip, the transport was 1st class in a small group (no 50 people coach loads), it was a full day 9am to 6pm return. We also arranged the airport transfer from the hotel again very economical. Would we stay again ? in the blink of an eye, a special and heartfelt thanks to a gem of a guy, Kamal you are the best.
