I dont write reviews very often, but having come back from a fantastic girls weekend in Marrakech, staying in Riad Qodwa I felt i needed to share our lovely trip!
On arrival at the airport we were collected by Jamal (hotel driver) who was lovely and friendly and the drive was about 1/2 hour to the hotel. Once at the hotel we were greeted with mint tea and the lovely man at reception (whos name i cant remember) sat us down with a map and explained/located the places we would probably like to visit and give us some very helpful do's and don'ts when out in the city.
The hotel has a lovely family run feel and nothing is too much trouble as they are always happy to help in anyway they can. The rooms and the communal areas like the terrace, swimming pool and foyer were always clean and the hotel offers free Wi-Fi, a continental breakfast and a free shuttle back and forth to the Medina and as long as you remember there is one shuttle and 13 or so rooms so you do have to be a little bit flexible it is a fantastic service.
Even though the hotel does not offer any alchol, they were more than happy to put our wine in the fridge and find us a bottle opener and they were happy for us to drink on the premises.
All in all we had a fantastic trip (even with the power cut on one of the days), yes the hotel is a budget hotel and as in all hotels there is room for improvement, but we certainly had more than our moneys worth! Thank to all the staff at the Riad Qodwa for a great weekend.
