Myself and my wife took a trip to Marrakech for a few days, just to see someplace different and it didn't disappoint. We wanted to stay in a Riad in the Medina, rather than some faceless chain hotel and this was the right decision for sure. Once we entered the big door into the Riad, we found a calm and peaceful oasis. I have never stayed anywhere quite so charming and full of character. It is absolutely beautiful as the photos show. We stayed in the Amethyst suite which was great. Also the breakfast was amazing with some nice choices, all served with a smile on the roof terrace.
The staff are so friendly and polite and would do anything for you. We took a hammam in the Riad too on the last day, to unwind after the craziness of the Medina. I would highly recommended it. When it was time to leave, we said goodbye to Wadi, Abdess, Merika, Nadia and all the other staff and I felt I was leaving friends.
If you are going to Marrakech, don't stay in some hotel in the new town as you could be anywhere. The Medina was overwhelming on our night of arrival. The derbs/lanes are full of hustle and bustle and very unfamiliar when you arrive but you get used to it. In fact this becomes part of the charm that makes you love Marrakech before you leave.
I would thoroughly recommend Riad El Mansour.
