Staying in an old Riad gives a more authentic Moroccan experience than staying in a modern hotel which has more amenities but looks and feels pretty much the same all over the world.
The owner Paolo and his staff did everything possible to make us feel at home in the Riad and to get the most out of our week in Marrakech. We really enjoyed our stay in the Riad and Marrakech.
Jemaa El Fna and most main sights are within walking distance from the Riad. The first evening Paolo walked half way together with us to make sure that we were able to find our way. He also gave us good advice on what to see and do while staying in Marrakech and helped us book trips to Essaouira and the Atlas Mountains.
Our suite at the Riad was perfect for us. Our 12 year old son had his own room and did not have to share the same room as my wife and myself.
Whenever the weather allowed it, we were eating breakfast on the roof terrace and it was really fascinating to watch the storks on the old Royal Palace wall just a few meters away.
One evening we were eating in the Riad. It did not come cheap but it was definitely the best meal that we had in Marrakech. Highly recommended.
