The Riad Jonan was everything we had hoped for and more. When deciding on Marrakech for our destination, we wanted to be in the heart of things, small, friendly, calm.... we got this in bucketfuls. I always check out Trip Advisor before I book anywhere and try and bear in mind the positives and negatives - ok, the shower was a bit dodgy and the plumbing a bit wiffy - so what? If you want a wide screen TV, mirror and lighting to do your make-up in (!!) and mini toiletries for a bubbly bath, go to the large corporate hotels outside Marrakech - after all you could be in any City in the world in one of those places!!! This place is simply beautiful and the staff, particularly Abdul and Hassan were so kind, friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and un-assuming. The décor is lovely, the rooms large enough, comfortable with clean towels every day, the food is simple but very tasty. We loved to spend time in the evenings after our return from the craziness of the Square and the Souks to the peaceful roof terrace for a beer or bottle of wine. We met some other lovely guests while we were there and we were all so happy to have chosen such a perfect little place in an ideal location. We went for a week, but took a 2 day trip in the middle of that week to Casablanca - I've done a separate review on that - well worth the train ride if you stay in the right place. Marrakech itself is a sensory overload - colours, sounds, smells and once you get used to their bartering, banter and the fact that if you point a camera within around half a mile at the snake charmers and stall owners, they'll spot you - then it's very much to be enjoyed. Don't think about it - just do it :-D
