We stayed at Riyad al Moussika for 4 nights and found it to be our oasis in Marrakech. The service is top-notch. Hassan welcomed us with mint tea and pastries, and made sure we had everything we needed each day. The rest of the staff was attentive and friendly. We had a flight that left early in the morning, but one of our waiters was up at 5:30 am to make sure we had our breakfast of yogurt, fruit, breads, freshly-squeezed orange juice and a cappucino. Our room was beautiful . . . we felt like royalty. The restaurant here is also amazing, and their lamb tangine was one of our favorite meals in Morocco. Location is perfect . . . about 5 minutes on foot to the Jemaa el Fna. The only reason we did not give the Riyad 5 stars is the noise level. Our room looked down into the dining room courtyard; most nights the noise and music went on until midnight. We didn't mind staying up late, but if you do, you are going to need earplugs and/or a sound machine. Overall, though, excellent riyad. If we ever return to Marrakech, we will stay here a again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Riad Al Moussika - For comfort, style and refinement. THE Riad experience in Marrakech! Situated in the ancient medina of Marrakech, five minutes walk from place Jemaa El Fna, the Riyad was once one of the residences of the former Pasha of Marrakech, Thami El Glaoui, and has been refurbished to a very high standard in the Andalucian style. One of the gates of Riyad Al Moussika opens on to a garden with old cypress trees soaring to the sky, a huge bougainvillea climbing across the pergolas, a swimming pool, in the centre or, more precisely, an Andalucian basin thirteen meters long, tiled with a mosaic carpet design. Here water falls from a white Carrara marble fountain to the songs of numerous small birds creating an idyllic scenario, in spite of being in the heart of central medina. A fireplace gives the winter evenings a cosy atmosphere, as do the impressive modern paintings, carpets, sofas and armchairs. There is a hi-fi system and an art deco Pleyel grand piano perfectly tuned for the pleasure of the guests. The Turkish bath or hammam in white marble with a relax room where, on request, a professional masseur can take care of the guests. There is a unique view of the medina and the Atlas Mountains from the two terraces that are sheltered partially with wooden pergolas and surrounded by large terracotta flower vases. Tables, comfortable armchairs with cushions and teak chaises-long allow guests to request breakfast and candle lit dinner, as well as to sunbathe during the day. On one of the terraces there is a pavilion with Moroccan sofas, cushions and lamps should some of the guests prefer a more intimate space. The resident Chef, Grand Diploma Cordon Bleu, has devoted his life to gastronomy and invites lovers of fine dining to experience his repertoire of Moroccan, Italian and French cuisine at the haute Cuisine riyad's Restaurant PEPE NERO. There are 4 double bedrooms, all with en-suite bathroom.
