I spent a total of about ten days in this Riad. I have to say it was my favorite Riad in my months holiday in Morocco. It was so bright, cheerful and welcoming. The place is extremely clean. Which can be attributed to the hard work of Barka. Who is just a lovely woman! She also gave me a cooking class while I was there. Which I thoroughly enjoyed! I was also given some spices that we used in the tagine. How thoughtful was that! Badr is the evening person who is also a very nice young man who always made sure I had my evening wine. Both of these individuals were very kind and accommodating. Which of course leads me to Frederique who is the owner of the Riad. I don't think I can give her enough praise of how welcoming she makes one feel. My first night in the Riad she actually walked me to the square, giving me landmarks for future outings so I wouldn't get lost. As a fifty plus solo traveller with a very poor sense of direction, this gesture was beyond appreciated! And you know, I never did get lost and actually gained the confidence to explore further in the souks.
Frederique was amazing! She was always available and the staff were not afraid to call her if you had any problems. It just gave you the feeling that you mattered. I cant really say that I experienced that elsewhere during my trip.
This is where I will be staying on my next trip to Marrakech. And its people like Frederique, Barka and Badr that make you want to go back! Thank You for such a wonderful visit to Marrakech.
The Riad is very tastefully decorated with each room having a different color theme. I stayed on the ground floor on both visits and both rooms were just lovely. And would be happy with either one of them
