Madam was very kind, helpful and informative. The Riad was just what we hoped for, intimate and comfortable. Our room was basic but clean. Breakfast was a very enjoyable experience. The plunge pool was very welcome after hours of walking throught the souk
The only negative was something that we had been led to expect from previous reviews -the smell from the drains (We had the lower right room). Clearly no U bends in the shower drain. I wet a towel and put it over the drain cover and this worked quite well. The riad is quite isolated and difficult to find ( through a maze of alleys) - a 20 - 30 min walk from the main square. This would have been easier if we were younger and fitter and had some sense of direction). .
The Riad is a 50 Dh taxi ride from the train station not 100Dh as our first taxi charged. We would return to Riad Calista anytime - Not so sure about Marrakesh
