We booked this riad after reading all the reviews on Tripadvisor, we booked directly on their website. From the start, the communication we received from the owner was fantastic, he answered all of our questions promptly.
The riad itself is based in the Old Medina of Marrakech. It is ideally situated at around a 5 minute walk away from the main square and the famous souks of Marrakech.
The staff at the riad are its best asset, they were all so positive and nothing was too much for them, whenever we asked for anything, they just got on with it and did it for us. They all spoke good English.
Our room was lovely, it had a massive double bed and nice artwork all around. The aircon was working well and kept the room at the right temperature. The bathroom was really nice, it had all the usual complimentary toiletries and really soft towels. The bed was just right for us and we had 4 nights of really good sleep.
The owner Oliver was a really nice guy, he helped us organise a trip to Essaouria, where we spent 3 nights at his newly opened riad (Riad Bab Essaouria). He also helped us organise a daytrip into the Atlas Mountains.
The food at this riad was something else, the breakfast was everything one could ask for, fresh pancakes, breads, omelettes, waffles, pastries, freshly squeezed orange juice, tea or coffee. The evening meal was one of the best we had on our weeks stay in Morocco, it was a lamb tagine, cooked to perfection.
There was a large jacuzzi on one of the terraces and plenty of sunloungers for topping our tan. There was a nice mix of guests at the riad from all over the world including the USA, UK, Spain and France. We got chatting to them on most evenings and felt really good exchanging stories and adventures we had the daytime.
There was free WIFI throughout the riad, it was very fast and helped us surf the internet and check our emails, we had our own laptop with us but if you don't have your own then the riad will let you use one of their computers.
We can see how this riad has built up such a good reputation, it has everything going for it and we would highly recommend it for a stay in Marrakech.
