The Riad de l'Orientale was the perfect getaway for our long weekend in Marrakech. We arrived in the morning having been collected from the airport and accompanied through the myriad of streets to the riad. We were then brought breakfast and helped with maps and suggestions of which sites to see by Latifa the lovely housekeeper. Our room was beautifully presented and we took full advantage of the sunny roof terrace for relaxing after a hectic visit to the souks or for having breakfast. Luckily the riad is very close to the main square in the Medina so easy to find - this is a big bonus in Marrakech considering how easy it is to get lost! The location, food, facilities and staff were second to none and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Latifa and Zaccaria were both so helpful including assisting us with bookings and directions, etc. And Mimi the cat was great company on the sun terrace! We definitely plan on visiting Marrakech again and will definitely be staying at the Riad de l'Orientale when we do.
