You can go mad trying to find the perfect Riad among the thousands available in Marrakech. Honestly, if this is within your price range, don't torture yourself and just book it. Everything the reviews say about how beautifully restored the Riad was done under John's loving and creative eye is true. Everything about the hospitality is true. There are other options for this same price, but what I really liked was how truly Moroccan it felt rather than the new minimalist feel. We came to Morocco to feel like we were in Morocco. We were traveling with three teenagers and they all loved it. Be sure to eat at Cafe Clock across the street, too! One note: the price is quoted in British pounds, not Euros. Might be obvious for some folks, but being American booking several places in Euros and Moroccan Dharma's and converting to USD, I missed this.
- 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
