We recently came back from 5 days in Marrakech where we stayed at Riad Miski. This beautiful Riad is situated in the centre of the Medina among all the noise and activity of vibrant Marrakech, but it is a haven of peace, quiet and tranquility. The rooms are very clean, the food is excellent and the hosts could not do enough for you.
The Miski is owned by Christine and Francis and they and their staff made us feel very welcome throughout our stay. We were provided with maps of the Medina and Christine took us on a tour of the souks so that we could get our bearings (and believe me this was a God sent as there are so many small roads and passages it is easy to get lost). Christine also recommended places to eat (and drink, as there are very few places that sell alcohol). We tried the Marrachi and Le Tanjia restaurants, both recommended and excellent.
On one day we had a trip to the Atlas mountains, this was arranged by Christine. We were taken to a valley well away from the touristy areas and had a great day experiencing the Berber culture. Our guide spoke very good English and we would definitely recommend this trip.
The Riad also offers hammam and massage, by Francis and Souad. My friend and I took advantage of this, you will not experience anything like this in England (but be prepared to lose your modesty!!).Definitely worth a try.
All in all a brilliant trip, we would most definitely go back and stay at Riad Miski again. Christine and Francis are fantastic hosts, the food at the Riad from breakfast to evening meal was gorgeous and the staff kind and helpful. A special thank you to Youssef who is absolutely charming, he looked after us so well and always with a smile, nothing was ever too much.
The Riad Miski is a real gem in Marrakech.
