“A Comfortable Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2012

My room was located on the terrace and was bright, quiet and private. It was a comfortable room. The shower was good with warm water and lots of pressure. The towels were good quality.
This is a smaller riad and because of this, it had a more homey feel. The other guests staying there were friendly and it was nice to share our experiences at the end of the day. There was always mint tea offered and the hosts were very friendly. One even played the guitar as we sat in the common area in the evening.

There were a couple of downfalls that I experienced: The room and shower did not feel the cleanest but it could have been due to the finishing: cement floor and slate bathroom.
It was far from the square and the souks and it was difficult to find. It took me a few tries before I could find my way back without getting lost but I am not sure that any other riad would be easier to find in the maze of streets in the medina. It was helpful to take photos of the route so that I could find my way back. Due to its location off of the beaten path, the small streets were deserted past a certain hour, making the walk back to the riad a bit unnerving.

For the price of my stay, it was excellent value for my money but it depends on what you are looking for in an accomodation. It was not luxury, but it was a comfortable place to rest your head. For me, I enjoyed the atmosphere and I would return there again.

And the staff were very friendly.. Thank you Farid for your kindness. You went out of your way to help me and I appreciate it.

Riad Amlal is like coming home. The owners and staff are very friendly and customer service is their top priority. The other travelers were consistently interesting and fun. Like everyplace in Marrakech's Medina, it's a little tricky to find. The location is great for people who want to get away from the center tourist crush, but stay within easy walking distance of the heart of things.

Room Tip: The upstairs terrace room has the best light, but you'll have to come downstairs for WiFi.
