My friend and I went to Marrakech for the first time and wanted to stay somewhere where we would feel safe. This is the perfect place for first time travelers to Morocco and after you have stayed here, you will want to return. The location is perfect - within walking distance of Djemaa el Fna. The riad has a charming cozy feel, as if you're staying with family. The rooms are roomy and clean. The staff is unbelievable helpful, friendly and caring. I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting a good value and excellent service. Simo is a gem and went out of his way to make our stay perfect. Will definitely return to El Arsa!
