We reached Marrakech at night around 9 PM and had called the Riad in advance to pick us up since taxis do not enter the narrow streets of Medina. Although we gave advanced notice, we had to wait for 45 minutes for the bell boy to arrive. Also, he came without a cart and we had to haul the baggage ourselves (this is not experienced at other Riads).
The bell boy was a happy-go-lucky kind of creature, nobody speaks English except the manager & the manager is never around to be found. We could not even make local phone calls since those are allowed only during manager's presence.
No heater in the room, walls with wetness/mold, bathrooms with no doors. In short, run away from this place!
Very basic and it repeatedly took the staff 30 minutes to serve the breakfast, every single day of our stay.
