Spent a fabulous couple of days in Marrakech with some friends to escape miserable London. With so many Riads to choose from, we thought we'd choose one a little more off the beaten track so we could be away from the craziness of 'La Place'. And at the end of the day, you can only look at so many websites before you take the plunge and book somewhere. We were very glad we did; stepping through the unmarked wooden door on an unassuming alleyway revealed a small, but perfectly-formed and beautifully-decorated Riad. I don't think I could fault anything about our stay - the traditional Riad was an oasis of calm in an otherwise frenetic city. The kindness shown to us from the owners was touching, from walking with us to the Souks on our first day, to helping us organise a day trip and recommending what to have for dinner. Breakfast on the roof terrace was a highlight, as was the hammam and massage (and then relaxing in the rooftop jacuzzi after a hot day in the Souks). The quality of the food was excellent - we wished we'd had dinner there every night! Well-equipped rooms (with air conditioning - a must in the summer) meant we slept soundly and had everything we needed.
I will definitely recommend this Riad to friends and family - the hospitality shown to us by the owners and staff working there was definitely not something you'd ever find in a city in the UK, and really made our stay.
