Riad Radia.T.R. at top of main square...about 75 yeards away !
Our first trip to Marrakech and our Riad ( B&B ) did not disapoint. We requested a hotel organised Taxi to pick us up and return us to the airport which we would recommend to all travellers at about 20 euros each way. One of the riads girls met us at the main square, Djemma el Fnc, and escorted us down a maze of alleys to our Riad but which was only a few minutes from the centre of things. There are only 5-6 rooms, and they are quite small,IMHO. We elected to upgrade to a room on the top floor where there was a small suite. It was another 30 euros per night but well worth it.
Although the Riad does not have a restaurant there is a kitchen and on our first night we asked in advance to have a roof terrace Tangine supper, at 20 euros a head. Great value compared with other top end restaurants and wow what a view, a perfect introduction to marrakech. The Riad is 4 stories high and has one of the highest roof terraces in the Medina which means you really do have a view to die for as we laid amongst the scatter cushions.
The young girls speak local Arabic and VERY little French but NO English so you have to be patient.
the Riad Radia was spotlessly clean dispite the road-allyway being dug up outside the Riads front door.
Improvements ? Well for one, the excellent breakfasts should be served on the roof terrace and not down in the entrance area.
Thats about it, no other complaints, if that was a complaint....oh, and make sure the air conditioning works every day ( we had one day when it didn't but was soon fixed ). The owner lives off site in the new town but is in and out during the day.
If I was to return to Marrakech I'd return to this charming family run Riad. I do hope the recent bomb ( only 4 days after our return home ) does not effect travellers experiences too negativley.
I'd be more worried about the really obnoxious Souk market trader who abused my partner with a perfectly flawless anglo saxon invective aimed at her because myself and the three young women I was escorting through the Souk didn't buy this guys coloured scarves !!!!
Top tip....go to the Majorelle Gardens if you do nothing else !
