This was with no doubt the perfect choice. Riad 144 was just perfect, and the service excellent. We were able get into the true Marrakech atmosphere at this wonderful Riad, located in the heart of the Medina, but just out of the busy souk steets.
The Riad has been newly remodeled, every room in a different style, , every detail covered. Of course very clean, and confortable beds. The common areas in the Riad were great, the inside patio with the swimming pool, the terrace in front of our room,but specially the top terrace with 360 degree views of the Medina, perfect spot to sit in the sun or relax.
The service was outstanding, very friendly and helpful. First they arranged for transportation from the airport. We felt welcomed, and Jean, the host, personally showed us around how to find our way through the laberinthic Medina. He recommended the best places to visit, and the best Restaurants( they were all unique). But after trying homemade cooking at the riad you also feel like staying for dinner. You go out to fell the atmosphere in Marrakech, but you wont find better food. Breakfast was absolutely delicious.
And the Hammam experience, well you have to try it... And the massage was great.
All the extras( transportation, dinners, hammam,massages) had very reasonable prices.
Thank you so much Jean for your attention, we were very lucky to meet Stale too( specially for his great cocktails and his recommendations for our next trip to Norway). We really felt as if we had stayed with friends.
We will surely come back!!!!!!!!!!
