We stayed for four nights in January and were delighted with this Riad. It is very well situated, being minutes from the main square and within the Souk. It is very beautiful and peaceful inside and the rooms are lovely. The main attraction is the wonderful owner! We only met Mikael briefly, but Guido looked after us as though we were family. We could not have been made more welcome. On arrival, Guido spent time explaining the different areas of Marrakech to us, giving us tips on how not to get scammed, how to get cabs and all those other things that make such a difference when you are somewhere that feels as alien as Marrakech. Guido also gave us some excellent restaurant recommendations and booked a lovely hammam for us.
The staff are friendly, polite and cheerful as well, a real credit to Guido and Mikael. If you get the chance to eat at the Riad in the evening, do so. The chef is incredible! We ate the best food of the trip here and that's saying something, as Marrakech has many good restaurants.
We visited La Mamounia while we were in town and my husband ideally talked about going there for a 'landmark' birthday, but we concluded that it was far nicer staying in this Riad, with its very personal touch. Can't wait to go back again.
