I had a fairly average experience in Marrakesh, but it was made much better by Riad Amin. The hotel is very well located, only 5 walk from the center of town, meaning everything is in walking distance. It is set back down a small alleyway, meaning that it is very tranquil. Indeed, the interior has a very oasis feel to it. (Marrakesh can be quite overwhelming, so the oasis nature of Riad Amin is *even more* welcome.)
The rooms are beautifully appointed (one might even say adorable) and the common area downstairs is simply gorgeous. It was exceptionally comfortable. The Riad also has a lovely roofdeck, and the staff are happy to serve you breakfast up there. It is a pleasant place to sit and hang out. The staff are very friendly (and are keen for everyone to join them in watching football).
The only problem was that my room safe malfunctioned, and so it required a manager to bring a master key from Casablanca, meaning that I was separated from my valuables for longer than a neurotic individual like myself is comfortable with. It took about 36 hours to resolve the problem, and in retrospect the staff handled it as well as could be expected and I learned a valuable lesson. But that experience, though nerve-wracking, did not subtract from my overall experience at Riad Amin. I would *definitely* return there again ... though maybe I might eschew using the room safe next time.
