After reading the reviews I was quite confident about staying at casa Lalla. We had arranged for an Airport transfer which was waiting for us at arival. We were picked up by a normal taxi car and dropped off around a 4-5 minute walk from the riad, (the streets are too small for any car to drive through). Our luggage was taken to the riad by a local in what looks like a modified wheelbarrow, completely safe i must add.
The room was lovely, tastefully decorated as was the whole riad, we had the suit. The riad is very cosy, the sound does resonate as in any enclosed space. there is a small pool with a powerfull jacuzzi in the courtyard but the water is not heated, its around 21 degress which seems cold at first but your body soons adapts.
Breakfast is served on the terrace, the selection could be better and a variety would also be welcome, we had fresh orange juice, some bread, pancake, and a spread, Personally I think eggs would have been a good addition. Im just nit picking, it was sufficient i must add.
The staff are great, always nearby, always helpfull. We met the owner Pier who was very pleasant.
Thers no TV in the room or a kettle, we didnt really miss the TV, there is free wifi in the courtyard areas, connection did drop on the terrace at times.
Its about a comfortable five minute walk to jema el fnaa square through a couple of narrow streets which can be a little daunting at first but thats the whole charm of marrakech, besides youl be hard pressed to find a riad thats not connected by these little streets, the locals who live near the riad are wonderful and youl feel completely safe.
The square itself is mental to be fair and the riad was a refreshing retreat from the hustle and bustle.
We did not dine at the restaurant, the riad is mood lit in the evenings which gives it a great ambiance.
I woudnt say it was a family riad, saying that I stayed with my wife and 6 month old child, so believe me when I say sound does resonate! Still, I would go back for sure, highly recommended.
