If you want a comfortable, cool, gorgeous and personal spot to relax in the madness that can be Marrakech, Riad Bayti is it.
My husband and I spent three nights at Riad Bayti and enjoyed every minute we were there. The tiny pool, by the way, is probably the best invention ever. It was topping out at about 54C degrees when were were in Marrakech, so needless to say a quick dip in that pool was the most rejuvenating experience in the world.
We arrived to mint tea and cookies (so good) and each day had homemade breakfast with the most delicious fresh-squeezed orange juice I've ever had.
Huge props must go to the manager Redouane (sorry if I have mis-spelled your name!), who was easily the most helpful host I have ever come across anywhere in the world. Ever. We arrived in the afternoon - he drew us a detailed map, gave us hints about shopping and some less hectic places to pick up what we wanted, some nearby museums and sites and the best way to get t them, hints and tips about the city... I mean, the effort he does to is above and beyond, and he really makes the riad what it is. You can ask that guy ANYTHING and he will help you out with a massive smile on his face the entire time.
The room was really big and very comfortable (sure, the bed was a little harder than you might find at a 5-star hotel, but we both slept like babies). The bathroom was curtained off from the main room and the shower was great. Really, really great, especially after being outside in the heat and dust all day. Usually not a fan of air-conditioning, but in this instance it was a fine addition to our room.
Also, there are two pet tortoises. Adorable.
Oh, we arranged for a transfer from the train station to the riad. Glad we did, too. After a long plane journey from the middle of Canada and hours spent on a couple of trains, it was a little bit of luxury we were glad we invested in.
We stayed in a room on the second floor and it was quiet, cool and lovely.
