Right from the pre-arranged pick-up from the airport we greeted very warmly. The manager made us very welcome and the service was excellent. On behalf of our group he made a number of reservations and provided lots of tips and suggestions. We also booked a couple of nice trips through the Riad with Marrakesh Keys Travel Day Tours.
The Riad is around 10-15 mins walk away from the souks and Jemaa el-Fnaa square and 15-20 mins walk away from the new town and we found quite a convenient base for visiting places.
The Riad is decorated in a traditional fashion with modern finishings, a good blend of old and new. Our room (Saffron suite) had the same ambient Moroccan lighting used around the Riad and also came with a combined aircon/heating unit which we used in the cool evenings. The bathroom had a luxurious feel with the large marble bath and dual 'his and her' sinks and a large overhead shower head. 2 bathrobes were thoughtfully provided. The hot water was always plentiful, though it was quite slow to fill the bath.
Each morning we were greeted on the roof terrace with a freshly cooked omelette with fresh juice and coffee, along with bread and various jams. The daily changing crepes and cakes and omelette were delicious.
If you are light sleepers like us, I should mention that you may hear the early morning prayer calls from the mosque down the road. Annoying at first, we got used to it by the end of the trip and it became part of the whole Marrakesh experience.
