There are many positives about this Riad but what stood out for us was the staff. Mohamed was friendly and attentive from the moment we arrived and we were genuinely sad to leave after our four night stay here.
The location was great. It is near to the Bab Doukkala mosque so very easy to locate. We liked that the area seemed to be a busy neighbourhood with lots of locals going about their daily business, but it is only a ten minute or so walk to the main tourist attractions if that is what you want to see.
The riad itself was a little haven of tranquility within the walled city which is quite hectic! We stayed in the Meli room which was beautiful. It was clean, comfortable and decorated with a lovely Moroccan style. My favourite part would have to be the roof terrace where we enjoyed breakfast in the sun.
The call to prayer will wake you up - but if this bothers you you may want to consider why you are going to Marrakesh in the first place?! It is part of the culture and to be expected when you are staying in the Medina. We were so tired from our days exploring that we would fall straight back to sleep anyway.
Our stay here was topped off by a very romantic proposal on the roof terrace on our last night. Mohammed had been part of the planning and helped make it a very special night indeed.
