After reading the trip advisor reports we opted to book 5 nights at the Maison Arabo Andalouse and it proved to be a great choice. Paolo was a fantastic host, always attentive and available for advice and to provide much needed assistance in a potentially bewildering city.
Tucked away in what seems like the middle of the city, the hotel/Riad is tricky to locate so it's definitely advised to contact Paolo beforehand. The surrounding streets are narrow and busy with scooters flying up and down them but as soon as you walk into the Riad all that disappears and is replaced by a relaxed chilled vibe. Stunning architecture and an interesting layout make it a pleasure simply exploring. The roof terrace provides a great space for breakfast with views across the city.
The rooms are aesthetically amazing and functional but don't expect anything too modern, it's more about the character of the place. The Riad provides a great base to explore from. Paolo helped immensely to organise trips to the seaside, the Atlas mountains and around Marrakech itself. Paolo's staff were excellent, friendly and willing to assist with any random task, such as locating lost paintings on buses.
Thoroughly recommended if you are after a more genuine feel of Marakech.
