What a delightful gem the Riad Ajebel is! We were charmed by the blue walls of our suite, the tadelakht and bright copper sink of the bath, and the bubbling orange-filled fountain in the riad courtyard. Ajebel was the perfect start and end of a day in the Medina. And the small pool was a refreshing way to cool off.
Corrine the enthusiastic manager gave us a thorough orientation to the Riad's Kasbah neighborhood. It was a pleasure to see this quieter, non-touristic residential side of the Medina, as well as the more famous and popular landmarks. We enjoyed walking back from the more hectic parts of Marrakech, slowly seeing more of daily life and regular people and how the street changed throughout the day. It was an interesting and comfortable walk, day or night. For outings where we needed a taxi, the Riad conveniently had a second door in the city wall that opened out on a traffic street, making it easy to arrive and depart.
We also loved the peaceful terrace which became our outdoor living room. We will miss the warmth of Corinne and her serene night manager Omar.
