To start with: this was our first trip to marrakech, so we don't have a lot of comparison material. However, we've both travelled a lot, and this riad was one of the best experiences we've had so far.
Service: excellent. When we arrived at the airport, a cab driver was waiting to pick us up and brought us straight to the riads' doors. Here we were welcomed by the owner Laurent, with fresh mint tea and he explained the basics of the city to us (standard thngs like where the good food is, and the regular fare for a taxi..). Because the main suite was empty Laurent offered us to upgrade our room for free.
Room: excellent. The room was clean, and styled in such a way that traditional was mixed perfectly with a more modern European style. There was fresh fruit and bottled water in the room for free. Everything smelled very nice too, and there were flower leaves on the bed and towels.
Common area: excellent. The same as the room: also very detailed and stylish, fresh mint tea, coffee, water and fruits are at your disposal for free anytime of the day.
Extra service: because we hadn't planned out the entire stay we asked Muriel and Laurent for advice on the rest of our stay. They helped us with the reservations we wanted and planning a route through the desert, and reserve a vehicle. If we'd done it ourselves we would probably lost the entire day on emailing and calling. Instead we went to les jardins majorelles and watched the sunset at another place of which I forgot the name (if you want to know this ask Laurent or Muriel).
Thank you for a great stay!
