The Riad is about a three minute walk from the north east corner of Jemaa El Fna. It is a bit like first star on the right and keep on till morning. You wind around several turns enter through and old door and emerge into a white washed, balconied quadrangle. It is an oasis from the chaos of the Souk. The walls are punctuated with solid black doors with their ornate silver locking bolts. As far as I could tell there were no exterior windows. The only windows looked out from the rooms onto the courtyard with its wall fountain and pebble pool.
Our room was also black and white with a splash of red in an alcove. It's open style was a bit of a shock at first, but we quickly adjusted. There is an intimate, homely feel about the whole place.
Adil welcomed us and nothing was too much trouble for him. With his colleague Mustafa we were well looked after. The chef did an excellent job to providing excellent local quinine at any time of the day. Adil told us this was our house. I can say the service has never been so good in my house.
We have had a really enjoyable time able to step out into the mayhem and madness of Marrakech and then back into the calm of this excellent Riad.
