We stayed here for 3 nights to experience the true culture of Marrakech, before going on to a resort at the Palmeraie; for our two young children. Had it not been for the kids, we would have been delighted to stay here longer.
From arrival to leaving, we had a memorable stay here.
We were picked up from airport in a comfortable 4x4. Given that most cars in Marrakech are rusty old mercs, this was somewhat a luxury. We were then dropped off at the square and met by a very nice old man who towed our baggage through the swarming night time crowds and spindly souk alleyways. On arrival we were warmly received by the glasses-wearing, ever so kind and hospitable member of staff. Couldn't help noticing the place was a bit dead. But for a small Riad, this was nothing to complain about really. And strengthened the ambience and experience of being a guest in someone's home and being looked after attentively and personally. Our room was tastefully decorated, modern with traditional features. The four-poster bed, ottoman bed box, hand carved bathroom door, high ceilings, his n hers basins in the bathroom and luxury toiletries were real plus points. The two male staff who manned the reception were both very amiable, polite, and sincere. They offered to take care of our every need and this included map of local attractions, the loan of a pushchair (which proved invaluable as we only brought one and in hindsight it was probably essential to have both 1 and 4 yr old in pushchairs, given the chaotic traffic of people, buzzing scooters, veg carts, donkeys, gaping gutters and cobbled paths.), warm milk, specially tailored kids meals, etc. The room was clean and bed was comfy. Each room is decorated differently, albeit tastefully. The lobby/courtyard is very small but adequate for the no. Of guests and rooms. The rooftop terrace is small, pretty and has a jacuzzi/hot tub (which we opted to avoid due to concern surrounding the hygiene of jacuzzis in general). Food is prepared as per your requirements and is served in a classic fine dining style, The location of this Riad was fab. Just 3mins to min square and such an interesting and intriguing walk down. Overall the Riad doesn't offer everything in terms of amenities/facilities, but the personal service and warm hospitality amid this tranquil retreat juxtaposed in the centre of a bustling hotspot, was a wonderful experience.
