After much research for the perfect Riad for our first visit to Marrakech, I booked the Riad Dar One for 5 nights in the Saint Exuprey room. I had some email correspondence with Jean, the owner to fix up the airport pick up, which is recommended.
What more can I say that has not been said before! The Riad is very chic, you can see the attention to detail at every turn. Our room was a good size, plenty of storage space for our bags and clothes. The bathroom was compact, but the shower was excellent and after some fine tuning the temperature and pressure was consistent. The staff changed the towels daily and kept the whole room spotless just like the first day we arrived. We had fresh flowers in our room each day, and there are flowers all through the courtyard.
Breakfast was simple and just the right amount of food to start the day, no need to ask us what we liked to drink, as this was remembered from the first day to the last. There could be a little more variety, but this is a minor point.
As for the staff, they would be the envy of any great hotel. Both Hicham and Abdel looked after us without complaint, recommending places to visit and places to eat. On return each day to the Riad they would great us with a smile and offer refreshment.
If you are looking for a top quality Riad, then look no further! With a great location, environment, safe, spotlessly clean and above all a super host and staff. Thank you to Jean and his team for making us welcome in his Riad and their city.
