We stayed here for five nights. The only negative point about this Riadh is the location. Because Marrakesh is so old and has v narrow streets it is not possible to get to the Riadh by car. From the airport our taxi dropped us off in the dark in a narrow alley and we followed a local lad for what seemed like miles, with our luggage, through back alleys, till I was sure that we were going to be mugged or worse! Eventually, after negotiating a particularly narrow, rubble strewn, dark alley we safely reached the door of the Riadh. Inside it is beautiful, traditional and peaceful, with only 3 bedrooms. Our room was large with traditional furnishings and antiques on the walls. When we accepted that it had all the things you would want in a hotel room but in unusual places e.g. toilet at the end of a long corridor, shower in a recess, wardrobe with a curtain, it was very comfortable. The bed was on a platform in traditional style.
Aminah and colleagues cooked simple morrocan food and even offered us wine. Aminah was also really helpful in booking taxis and trips for us and even accompanied me to the Souk to help me get the best prices for Kaftans, harem pants and a tagine. Her hammam was excellent. During the summer months guests can swim in the small pool and sunbathe on the roof, where the hammam room is situated and there is a pretty open lounge area.
I am happy to recommend this Riah to adventurous travellers - just try to arrive in daylight!
