The Riad Africa was a perfect location from which to explore Marrakech, it was a short walk to the palaces, the souks and the square.
The rooms were comfortable and clean, though rather small when you have two suitcases laid on the floor. The food for breakfast was excellent and you got plenty every morning.
There was a couple of issues with staff having very loud arguments within the hotel both on a morning and late evening which we found very unprofessional. Along with the fact that it was suggested by staff that the noise was from other residents at the hotel which was not the case.
Whilst the location and the rooms were really good, I wouldn't choose to stay there again because of the staff. Whilst they were friendly and accommodating, I do not wish to spend good money to hear them arguing.
