We had always wanted to stay in a Riad if we visited Marrakech and there are loads to choose from but you can't go wrong with this one. From the moment you step through the unassuming front door into the Riad and down some steps into the courtyard. You enter a haven of peace & tranquility. The birds in their cages chattering away, the lovely green garden courtyard where all rooms face onto is a joy. The Riad has been totally refurbished in traditional Islamic decoration & is very nice. The owners live in & are always around to assist & greet you when you return from your time spent away from the Riad. The staff are very friendly, smiling & attentive. Located in the residential area of the Medina it is quiet. We loved the breakfast up on the roof terrace or if the weather is colder in the lounge on the ground floor. We did eat in a few times, & the food was always fresh & a great experience to try Moroccan food. Loved the tagines... We visited the new part of Marrakech & the hotels are lovely but you could be any where. It is more expensive staying here granted but if you want to visit authentic Marrakech, than do not give it a moments thought , stay here, you won't regret it & worth every penny !
