I had already read wonderful reviews of Riad Tizwa as it was featured as a mid-budget, luxury stay, in a bespoke city guide- aimed at designers, artists and fashion professionals (WGSN.com). I visited in early March 2014 with my boyfriend- our first time in Marrakech.
This is a beautiful, blissful Riad in an-easy-to-find (by Marrakech standards!) location- to the North West of the Medina, within the old city walls.
Take our advice and book the airport transfer directly with Riad Tizwa- you wont get ripped off by local taxi drivers and the door-to-door pick up service was exceptional.
When you arrive at the Riad, you're welcomed home- to an oasis of calm, authentic features, the beautiful courtyard (of which most of the rooms overlook) and a sun-trap roof terrace.
Our room was decadent and colourful- a four poster bed and a scattering of Moroccan craft features. The bathroom was huge, complete with luxurious robes, traditional Moroccan slippers and bath oils.
At the Riad, you're best placed to enjoy so much in Marrakech... It's a 10 minute stroll to the main square, 15 minutes from Jardin Majorelle and a short skip away from the souks, tanneries, museums and restaurants. Although Marrakech is notoriously difficult to navigate by map- you can always anchor yourself to a long wall on your left that runs you right down to the main square- marked by a familiar corner-post for officials and police.
Of course, you're here to see Marrakech- but the Riad and the staff really make this stay special. Above all, the staff - Hassan and Mohammed - are attentive, polite, relaxed, discreet, friendly and helpful. We were greeted by Hassan most mornings- and when returning to the Riad after a day of exploring. We asked a lot of questions, about haggling, where to head for dinner, where we could pick up a few beers... Hassan was always helpful and gave excellent recommendations.
Awake to tea and coffee, milk and sugar outside your bedroom door. Have your breakfast at whatever time you like- wherever you like. We took ours on the roof terrace every morning, just give a ten minute warning and a gorgeous selection of pastries, yoghurt, freshly-squeezed orange juice, fresh fruit salad, muesli, bread, butter and jam will be whisked to your table.
Your room will be turned down swiftly by the lovely staff- we loved the eco-aware attention to detail.
Riad Tizwa offers a relaxing, luxury stay with ideal location and absolutely unbeatable staff. We will e visiting again and have already recommended to family and friends. Thank you Riad Tizwa for a magical stay!
