Awesome little riad tucked away on a side street, 8 mins walk to Djamaa El Fna Square.
I booked this online and am happy I did. At first we had a room for 4, but 2 of the beds were like sleeping on concrete. As soon as we mentioned it to Thierry the manager, he put 2 of us in another double room, for no additional cost.
Rooms are clean, but seem to have a small ant problem. Not an issue for us, but our travel companions were not impressed. We also had a bad sewage smell coming from the drainpipe in the shower, but this was remidied by keeping the plug hole covered when not showering. Seems to be a recurring issue in Marrakech, so we weren't suprised by this.
Lovely rooftop terrace with dining tables/chairs, loungers and couches. Fabric coverings are becoming faded with the sun, but it is still a nice place to go and soak up the sun, enjoy breakfast (included) or other meals which you can pre-order.
Upon arrival, we were offered mint tea and homemade biscuits, up on the terrace. Thierry was not there but had left a note for us and instructions to have the riad staff call if there were any issues - which there weren't.
Soaker pool on the main level was freezing as it is unheated and we were there in November. However, a quick dunk, run upstairs to the terrace and bake in the Moroccan sun...bliss!
All staff were very polite and did everything they could for you. Some have English better than others, but no one was afraid to try! Thierry was great and provided us with a map of the local area and instuctions on how to walk to get where we wanted, all of which was accuarte and detailed. He also booked an evening out for us at Fantasia and got taxis for us when required.
We would definately stay here again! Thanks Thierry!!!
