We arrived here after six nights much further south in another Fleewinter location so this was very different. Just off the bustling, vibrant, exciting Rue de Kasbah, you step through the door to the most beautiful Riad. John gave us a great welcome before we settled in with a swim and rooftop lunch. It was hard to pluck up the courage to open that door and step back into the hustle and bustle of the city. When we did we visited the souks :- ( and ate at the Kosybar, which was good. A lovely quiet night in a gorgeous bed, delicious breakfast before a day exploring the Atlas mountains - highly recommend. With all of Marrakech to dine in, we chose to eat on the Riad's rooftop, so lovely and peaceful up there. We had the Moroccan salad starter and to be honest it is probably the nicest thing I have ever eaten. My caramelised orange tart pudding was probably the second nicest thing. Truly delicious. Stayed with three children 17, 15 and 10 - we swam lots and nothing was ever a problem. Highly, highly recommend this brilliant Riad.
- 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
