Took advice from friends to stay out of the heart of the Medina. It's a crazy place and a lot to take in. This place was super well located on a quiet street and really provided the necessary tranquility you need after being in the middle of it all. Awesome location for all the sights in and out of the medina. Jacques, the owner and proprietor is the man! Arranged pick up to and from airport, sat down with me for 20 mins when I arrived to walk me thru the map, give me sightseeing tips, restaurant tips and a good lesson in street smarts to handle Marrakech. The staff could not have been friendlier if they tried. Upon arrival I was offered mint tea and snacks and they always offered to and water upon request. The roof terrace was awesome. Great place to sit and relax and eat breakfast. Be sure to have an omelette at breakfast...was excellent. Even better, I took advantage of having dinner at the riad my first night. You MUST do this, it was amazing! Fabulous and very large home cooked meal...Moroccan specialties of your choice. I had the couscous with lamb nd chicken. So good. Enjoy!
