Riad Adika is a peaceful place to stay among the maze of narrow streets in the chaotic medina of Marrakech, although it is a bit out of the way -20 minute-walk from the famous Jemaa El Fna- so you need to take a taxi specially at night. To get to the riad you have to pass through a good 500m of narrow poorly (or not lit at all) streets that get narrower and narrower. It is actually quite intimidating getting to the riad from where the taxi leaves you, since the neighbourhood is the old and dirty part of Marrakech. The staff was friendly and helpful but on the whole the riad is too expensive for the facilities it really offers. We booked three nights there in a" luxury hotels" page. The photos made it look bigger than what it really was.There was a sitting area with TV and small library. The so-called pool- really a pond with a little fountain and a slight smell of sewage- was in the middle of the dining area where you had breakfast or dinner. Although the solarium on the top floor was a nice place to relax-with all kinds of plants and small trees-, the covers of the sunbeds were broken and had soaked water so you got all wet when you lay down. The so-called fitness centre was a couple of exercise bikes and an eliptic walker. The hammam was a small steam bath and a massage room. We had booked the room Qamra on the ground floor. The rooms on the ground floor opened directly onto the dining area. They had little wooden windows and old doors so they were dark and had no privacy. We, therefore, asked the manager for another room on the first floor. It was a so-called suite. And although it was beautifully decorated, its only facilities were a minibar and a safe-box. No satellite TV, heating or air-conditioning. The bathroom was poorly illuminated and the shower tray didn't drain. Similarly, the breakfast was also quite disappointing: O.J., tea or coffee, butter, jam and bread. Finally, when we checked out , what a coincidence! they had a problem with their credit card machine and we had to pay in cash! As I say, on the whole rather disappointing.
