To experience Marrakech then you will not do better than staying in a Riad inside the Medina, the old walled town. For me, the El Mansour was better than I hoped for. Located in a busy part of the north-east area of the Medina, it was down back alley (which they helped us to find our way about at first - no lost guests!). Although it was good walk to the main square, this meant it was also a short walk into the European-style town - the delightful Majorelle gardens were just 20 mins away, so we could benefit from both aspects of the town. Even though we were inside the Medina, it was a tranquil haven detached from the bustle outside; the only noise from outside was the dawn chorus from the birds (finches and house bustards), and the call to prayer. But above all, the staff made it a delight - they kept it spotless and well-run, with fantastic hospitality and charm, and were very attentive without being intrusive. They also got reliable drivers who could speak good English, and provided good advice. I had warned them in advance that one of us has special dietary needs, and they went out of their way to work with us on this, which was a great relief. They provided a great breakfast that set you up for the day, and very generous evening meals. The top floor was also a great place to eat or settle down and read or plan the day, basking in the warm December sun.
I don't know what more we could have asked for...
