Riad Linda's location of 5-10 minutes walk from La Grande Place means that you are swept into the hustle and bustle of day to day Marrakech on arrival- at first overwhelming but within 24 hours the noises, smells and sights become very familiar. The riad is accessed down narrow passage ways - expect to be approached by local children, to step aside for mopeds, to hear cockerels crowing and to dodge round skulking feral cats. Do not be deceived by first impressions of walking down these alleyways to the riad - it is very safe. On arrival at the riad all is calm, clean and welcoming after the initial melee. The riad is simple but fresh and the furnishings and fittings have been chosen with care and empathy. We had 3 rooms and the beds in all rooms were very comfortable . The bathrooms are mainly simple , roomy 'wet rooms'. We had organised an evening meal at the riad for our arrival and it was a perfect introduction to Moroccan cuisine - salad, tagines, bread and delicious local oranges to follow.The riad staff are very hospitable , gentle people and wanted us to have a very positive experience of Marrakech and Morocco. Rachid the manager speaks English perfectly but he is not always at the riad. The housekeeper and young lad, who is there every evening as well as mostly through the day, do not speak English or French but this did not cause any difficulties as we found ways to "talk"to each other. Light sleepers beware - take a good set of earplugs or put the air conditioning on as fully as possible to generate a constant white noise to block out the early morning noises of - the call to prayer ( there is a mosque in the nearby alleyway); wailing cats, barking dogs , crowing cockerels. We enjoyed our stay at Riad Linda - great location , quickly became our home for the stay and our thanks to the staff for making our stay easy and hassle free.
