As a New Yorker who travels frequently, I'm quite picky about where I stay. Your choice in hotel can make/break a trip! So when I decided to stay at a Riad (traditional Moroccan bed and breakfast) instead of my usual luxury hotel, I was a little nervous. But honestly, choosing to stay at the Riad Granvilier was the best decision I've ever made.
Not only was the Riad Granvilier lovely, with it's open interior courtyard, private rooftop, and comfortable rooms, but the staff is unparallelled in their hospitality. Mohamed, Mustafa and their team made us feel truly cared for the entire time. They answered our questions, helped with itineraries and even cared for me when I caught a cold (tea + local honey is the best medicine!). Breakfasts were served with a smile on the rooftop. Rooms were kept very clean, including subtle incense. And despite the hot Moroccan sun, the air conditioner kept us incredibly comfortable.
The location of Riad Granvilier was also perfect, found on a winding road just beyond the Jamaa el-Fna square. Very exciting, convenient place to stay and within walking distance of many sites we wanted to experience. We also felt very safe, which is important.
Our expectations were exceeded, which is rare, and I would highly recommend this riad to anyone visiting Marrakech. Thanks to all for a lovely time!
