We stayed at Riad Maison Arabo Andalouse and I can not recommend this riad highly enough. Even before we arrived, GPaolo was extremely helpful arranging a car to collect us from the airport.
The Riad is in a great location in the medina and only a 5-10 mins walk from the main square and other attractions.
The Riad itself is a beautiful building and our room was amazing with a private sunny terrace overlooking the courtyard. GPaolo kindly showed us round all the rooms and they were all lovely with real morrocan character. The room was also exceptionally clean.
One of the highlights of the stay was the traditional morrocan breakfast every day on the terrace although the staff are more than happy to cook eggs etc if required. The terrace is a great sun spot and is next to the ruins of the old palace which is now a nesting ground for storks.
From the moment we arrived 'til the moment we left the staff were fantastic and so helpful and nothing is too much - when they found out I hadn't managed to buy a bowl from the souks I was greeted that evening with a choice of 3 bowls which Mohammed had thoughtfully gone out to get me. GPaolo also gave us excelllent advice on what to do as we only had 2.5 days in Marrakech and Mohammed helpfully arranged restaurant, taxi and hammam bookings.
I would also recommend having a meal in the evening on the terrace - Fatima is an exceptional cook and it's really beautiful in the evening.
Marrakech is an amazing city and we are already planning our next trip back to Maison Arabo Andalouse early next year.
