We stayed at the Riad Kheirredine for a long weekend at the end of January to enjoy the blue skies, sunlight and fascination of Marrakech.
The rooms are beautifully designed and are as lovely as the pictures on the website suggest. We stayed in the Ambre room which has Moroccan décor, with a fireplace, sofa and coffee table as well as a comfortable bed. Nice touches included the 'cornes de gazelle' cakes on arrival, plus free soft drinks and fruit throughout our stay. In the morning you can have breakfast downstairs or on the roof terrace where you can look out over the Medina towards the mountains and enjoy the sunlight. The roof terrace is also a great place to end the day in the sun as it's well-furnished with sofas and sun loungers from which you can order drinks.
If you don't go out in the evening, the riad's Moroccan dinner is a good option. On request they can also do a lighter version from what's available on the day. Wine and some other alcoholic drinks can be purchased in the riad, and enjoyed with a meal, by the pool in the courtyard, or on the roof terrace.
The lovely staff look after you very well indeed. Indeed I would say the service at the Riad Kheirredine matches that of the very best and most expensive hotels I've stayed in. Nothing seems too much for them.
They also go out of their way to make you feel at home and safe in what is quite a chaotic city. On the first morning Ismael guided us through the maze of alleys to the taxi stop and from there through the busy covered shopping lanes to Jemaa el-Fnaa. His directions were faultless both in getting us there and in teaching us to find our own way back. The riad also provides you with a local mobile phone so you can call them if you get lost, need help, or want to be walked back from the taxi stop at night.
Mention must also of course go to Valentina, who made us feel welcome from beginning to end, and whose knowledge and advice was always valuable, and also to her colleague Yajaira. The proprietor, Marina, wasn't around when we were there, but it's clear she recognises that in a well-run business, happy staff make for happy customers. And we were certainly happy – go there, you'll love it!
