There's no two ways about it, Marrakesh is a stressful place when you first arrive - especially if you are in a hire car!! However, Riad Rabahsadia was a fantastic place to take refuge while trying to adjust to the culture shock. We had a bit of a problem finding it initially but I can't imagine any Riad in here is easy to find...Beware teenagers who tell you they work at the Riad (of course they don't!), and then demand money for their trouble once your through the front door (as we experienced). The charismatic and charming owner greeted us as though we were old friends and made sure all our needs were met. He apologised constantly for his english, though compared to our french, it was excellent. The rooms are gorgeous and just like the pics on the internet. The owner explained that the whole building had been recently constructed and designed by two artists who used to own it. The rooftop terrace is well set out with an enclosed dining area and then open space for sunbathing (straw sun hats are provided). We had a great stay here and spent two blissful days in the heart of the vibrant city of Marrakesh. My only complaint is that the air conditioning unit in our room was in desperate need of attention, bit noisy and I'm not at all sure it made any difference to the temperature.
