The hotel is in the middle of a bustling souk in Marrakech. When you open the door in a narrow alley into the hotel, the beauty of the interior is quite amazing. There are small public rooms throughout for dining or conversation, a small pool of very cool refreshing water, and a lovely rooftop garden where the complimentary full breakfast is served.
Special experiences include a delightful three hour personal cooking experience (we shared this with one other couple, gathering meats, vegetables and spices only steps away in the souk, cooking salads, a tangine of lamb and vegetables, and a pastilla of chicken and spices.) Amina was our cooking instructor who spoke excellent English and was delightful.
We also had a great experience with Saida who scrubbed us vigorously (but modestly) in the traditional Hammam steam bath at the hotel.
This riad was a great treat for our last three days in Morocco.
