We spent a week at the Riad les Bougainvilliers in April of this year. The hotel was a wonderful oasis of calm in Marrakesch. The staff was very friendly and helpful; they arranged a very interesting excursions and took care that all went well, for example walking us to the taxi or having the driver come to the Riad. Also they arranged for a pleasant Hammam experience. The staff spoke both French and English fluently, and were always happy for a chat. The rooms are large and have everything that you need, and, like the hotel as a whole, are very pleasantly and tastefully decorated. The two comfortable courtyards are small, but quite brightly lit and separated by a pleasant commons room. The pool is large enough to cool off in, but not appropriate for swimming. Also there is a terrace on the roof with a view over the city and, when the weather is right, a view of the Atlas mountains.
The dinners were were the best we had in Marrakesch; the spices were just right and the meat tender. The soup or salad for the starter, main course and dessert were perfect and very reasonably priced.
We recommend the Riad les Bougainvilliers to those that appreciate a small, quiet, pleasant hotel with a very friendly staff.
