I've just come back from Marrakech and I already miss Riad Anabel and Habiba.
I'm going to repeat briefly what it has already been said about this Riad and add maybe something new. It's spotless clean, elegant yet traditional, convenient location (if you turn right on the main road, coming from the riad, after 5 min walk there's Jemma El Fna; if you turn left instead, 2 min walk there's a small square with taxis: for 20 dirham/2 euro you can go anywhere in Marrakech, with 50-80 dirham to the airport (but you have to bargain hard). I suggest you to arrange a pick up service with the hotel when you arrive, if you don't know your way around). All rooms have very confortable beds and a beautiful moroccan style bathroom (some with shower, some with tub). Habiba will fulfill all your needs, and more... (I brought some mint plants at home with me that she found for me). We had a wonderful dinner cooked by her, I regret we didn't have more, but unfortunately there was not enough time, we wanted to try different places. But believe me, Habiba's dinner was the best of all. The Riad is just off a main road, in a very clean alley, perfectly safe area, and speaking of safety, I have to spend some words about it. Lately we have heard the news about riots in north Africa, assuming that in Morocco there is the same situation as in Libia and Tunisia..., more or less... WELL, IT'S NOT!!! Morocco has nothing to do with what is going on in North Africa. DON'T BE PUT OFF BY THE NEWS: it's safe to go to Marrakech, nothing is going on: there has been a regular manifestation in february, like we have hundreds in Europe all the time, and that was it. So, don't worry and just go to Marrakech: you'll enjoy it! Just to be sure, you can check your government web site about going abroad to risky countries (in Italy, you can check http://www.viaggiaresicuri.it/?marocco ), and you'll see that is perfectly safe. Back to the Riad, now. I really think it's the best you can find considering all factors: service, rooms, location, price. I highly reccomend it. I'll definetly go there again.
