If you are looking for a riad, look no further- this one is perfect.
The location is ideal: tucked down a quiet little street a few steps from Ben Yousef Madrasa and the souks.
The bustle of Marrakech dropped away the instant we stepped into this gorgeous riad. Tranquil, cool courtyards with the burble of water (including a very inviting pool) have lots of secluded spots in the shade; those looking for sun can take one of the sun loungers on the roof.
Our suite was spacious and tastefully decorated, with a large sitting room (wood fireplace- cosy on cool winter evenings), separate bedroom, enormous bath and a private roof terrace. The bed was extremely comfortable, and the hot water bottles we discovered after the turndown service were a welcome touch.
There is a restaurant in the riad, with good food served in the intimate dining-room, the suites, rooftop, or presumably where you like. Breakfast was excellent.
The hammam was a fantastic experience, and the massage in the dedicated massage room was very good.
But the really great thing about this riad is the staff. Friendly, engaging, interested - it was clear they genuinely want guests to have the best possible experience in Marrakech. The result is better than any 5-star hotel: personal, flawless and charming. From the gate guard walking us to the waiting taxi, to the fact that everyone knew our name, to the manager tracking down some essential items after hours, it was a great pleasure to stay here.
