I stayed at Hikaya with my family and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. A very different experience to staying in one of the many chain hotels that we had stayed in before and much more authentic. It is an easy walk to the square and souks and although initially a bit daunting walking through the narrow streets for the first time - especially at night - it was absolutely fine. The riad looks nothing from the outside but once inside the door it is amazing and has been decorated beautifully. The beds are really comfortable and everything is very clean. John the owner is extremely helpful and tells you all the good places to visit - make sure you visit the KozyBar. The food is very good at Riad Hikaya.
The square at night takes on a completely different feel and with 4 teenage girls with you - you do get a lot of unwanted attention but mostly it is just a bit of fun as long as you are appropriately dressed. All the ladies in our group did experience one instance of inappropriate touching however so take care.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Riad Hikaya is a luxury boutique hotel located in the royal quarter of the medina, called the 'Kasbah', and only an easy walk from the main square, Jemaa al Fnaa, and the city's other famous landmarks. It took three years of meticulous restoration by local craftsmen and artisans, employing both age old techniques and materials, to transform the riad into what it is today. The two roof terraces, planted with orange, lemon, grapefruit and pomegranate trees, offer superb, open views onto the snow capped Atlas mountains. Guests are welcome to eat in our 'Café Des Epices'or on one of our roof terraces to make the most of the view.Included in the room rate:• Moroccan/Continental breakfast• Remote controlled air conditioning and heating for the cooler months• Fresh fruit & mineral water• Fresh flowers• "Sens de Marrakesh" toiletries• Babouche - his and hers• Flat screen tv / satellite channels• Nightly turn down service with rose petals• Ipod docking station• Free wifi internet access ... more less
