Quite simply, this is an excellent riad, in a central location, with wonderfully attentive and accommodating staff. We used the taxi service provided by Maison Arabo Andalouse and this dropped us about 2 mins walk from the riad. Mohammed was on hand to help us with our cases and guide us through the alleys to the riad. On arrival, Gian-Paolo met us and both he and Mohammed chatted to us about the local area, places to visit, etc., while we were served some excellent mint tea and local pastries. The riad is situated within the Medina and about 10 mins walk from the 'big square' Jemaa el-Fnaa, Koutoubia Mosque, Saadian Tombs and numerous other sites of interest, so you're well placed for sight-seeing on foot. Even though the riad is located centrally in such a busy and noisy city as Marrakech, when you close the door, you're in an oasis of calm. Palm trees and banana trees stretch up from the peaceful courtyard, and here Fatima provided us with a great breakfast each morning. Mohammed is very attentive and always available to arrange taxis, trips and to provide helpful advice and guidance. The riad is tastefully decorated throughout, with Berber influences, magnificent wooden doors and wonderful lamps. We stayed in Room 7 and it was clean, comfortable and perfectly fulfilled our needs. There's an airy roof terrace, so if you can't face another adventure through the labyrinths of the souks, you could easily spend your day lazing quietly on a lounger, under a shady canopy. All in all, a great place to stay.
