This hotel was nice but we had a couple issues upon arrival. First, we had booked based on the room size as listed on the website we used and the number they gave was 474 ft. The actual room size ended up being half that, which I still struggle to understand. Aditionally, they had put us in a room not the one we booked and after talking to the owner who was probably in her chateau in France when we spoke on the phone, she gave us our room the next morning. I don't know how they can give a size that is not the actual size of the room and claim to include a kitchen and other ammenities in the room descritption. We should have known that it was too good to be true as riad rooms in Marrakesh are usually holes in the wall and to get 474, you'd have to book at the palatial hotel. Aside from the city being an overwhelming experience and the people being complete grabby and annoying at times, coming back to the quiet riad was nice after having been torn to shreds by Medina sellers and tattoo ninjas. Thanks Hana for everything. Just make sure to get the booking right.
All in all, if you want the exotic riad experience, this place is great for a good price. Otherwise, with the madness of the suks and the stink in the square, I'll probably stay outside the Medina next time just to be able to escape the rude comments by the locals (they didn't think we spoke both their languages) and the tight walkways that can get to you after a week.
