My wife and I and a number of friends stayed in the Princess Du Desert for three nights. The booking was very straightforward and the subsequent arrangements for transfer from the airport to the hotel were all taken care of by an easy email exchange with Abdul at the Riad, and all arrangements turned out to be utterly reliably executed.
Taxis can not get inside the old city walls within which the Princess Du Desert is located, so the latter part of the airport transfer involved being lead through the narrow streets of the Medina (the old walled city) by a chap, who had met the taxi at one of the gates of the city wall, with our luggage in a wheelbarrow. I mention this not as a criticism of the location of the Riad (on the contrary) but simply to point out that you wont be able to go to the taxi rank at the airport and ask the driver to drop you outside your hotel. Ask the staff at the Princess Du Desert to take care of the arrangements for you and you will be well served.
The hospitality from the moment we arrived to the moment we left was impeccable.
The food was absolutely delicious. I expressed an interest in how the gorgeous Msemmen pancakes were made, that had been served for breakfast, and I had a cooking lesson demonstrating how! Just exceptional service.
I can not rate the Princess Du Desert highly enough.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Riad Princesse du Desert Nothing is too good for her. Equidistant from the " Jemaa El Fna " and " Door Dar El Bacha " , the location of Riad Princesse du Desert is exceptional especially since it offers beautiful calm and tranquility. Nestled in the Medina, the small alley that leads to the riad is a wonder with warm colors that contrast with the blue sky and vegetation that is rare in the Medina which can give the feeling of a Provence in Marrakech. Additionally beautiful decoration, attention to detail , arches , columns and moucharabiehs , lace white stucco ceilings, zellij ( tiled ) walls and featuring an alchemy of colors and smells with refined bath products (jasmine and amber ) make this a wonderful place to be . Additionally, not forgetting comfort alongside the beauty, each of the 6 rooms feature air conditioning, soft bedding and luxury linens. Breakfast is included in the price and we offer complimentary Moroccan mint tea and coffee with homemade cookies at all times. ... more less
