Our family of six at Riad Ageurzame for a week at the end of December 2012 - over Christmas. It is a very beautiful traditional Riad - very good value, beautiful atmosphere and experience for the tariff we paid. There are ofcourse many Riads in Marrakech in the medina - several that are perhaps even more beautiful. But the warmth, attention and responsiveness of the staff Aziz, Lalya and Aziza, the services and facilities offered and above all the personalized care and attention that Laurent offers in his Riad makes this place a home, during your stay. The atmosphere is intimate during the day and even more during the evenings and at night.
The location of the Riad is excellent - as it not too close and yet not too far from the souks and Jemma-el-fna. The four rooms that we occupied are excellent and warm in the December cold - large, clean, good showers with warm water, plenty of sunlight during the day and heaters at night. Laurent and his staff are very flexible and open - giving you the space to make yourself very comfortable at the Riad - you can use the kitchen to make your coffee/tea if you are an early riser. They also have a washing machine. There is also plenty of space to hang-out at the Riad including the courtyard, the terrace and a salon.
Riad Aguerzame is a very good option for a large family. You can have your meals at the Riad as they have a very good cook - we had one or two very good dinners - but the options to eat out are so many that it is not necessary to eat at the Riad. Breakfast is good with a traditional Moroccan breakfast - fresh bread and home-made jams, pancakes, eggs etc - although for some of us, it was too much of a sweet breakfast to have everyday of the week. It will be useful to request the staff for options as they are very responsive.
The Riad is able to offer many excellent services on request and by sharing information with guests - massages, day-trips, directions, maps, books, taxi services for short and long distances, excellent tips for shopping etc.
