With so many riads on offer in Marrakech it is difficult to know which one to choose. We were lucky we stayed at the Charme D'Orient.
Location - short walk to the main square (Jemaa el-Fna) and the start of the Souks + close to "real Marrakech" away from tourists (opposite direction to main square).
The host - Lawrence was was very attentive and her attention to detail from the way she has refurbished the riad to the quality bedding and the high standard of cleanliness she provides did not go unnoticed. Ask her for recommendations for out of the way restaurants. She can also organise day trips and book hammams but she does not push this fact.
Pool - many people see a pool in the photos and think they can use it for bathing. The pool is in the courtyard on the ground floor and is more decorational than functional.
Taxi service - we chose to use a taxi driver she recommended. It probably cost us more but he waited for us during baggage delays and got us to the riad within minutes of leaving the airport. Said, the caretaker/manager, would meet all guests at the taxi drop off and walk us through the narrow streets till we got our bearings. Wonderful service!
Would thoroughly recommend.
