Having read all the Tripadvisor comments we thought we had found a gem for our first trip to Marrakech. I am afraid we must have been in a different place to the rest of you.
The Riad is located up a narrow dusty smelly alleyway. Our room was so small we could hardly move. There was a full ashtray on the side table. Two light bulbs were not working and those that did were so dim you could not read. The safe was not even screwed in so anyone could walk off with it. The air conditioning did not work. There was no door lock. There was no key to the front door, so you had to keep banging until you were let in.
Modern comforts with a swimming pool!!?? No TV; no tea and coffee making facilities; no plugs in the hand basin or bath. Almost impossible shower. The pool is a tiny paddling pool fit only for a few gold fish.
The breakfast was a few rolls with cheap jam and we were expected to drink our coffee from cereal bowls!!! There were no evening meals on offer which we were looking forward to.
We paid £115.67 for two nights B&B. Not good enough. Wish we had paid more to go to one of the 5 star hotels available instead of falling for the so called romance of a Riad.
