Ta'achchaqa was the last of the 8 ryads we did on our Morocco-trip. And apparently we saved the best for last - what a wonderful experience ! We totally don't understand some of the negative remarks made in other reviews...
Location : very good, in the center of the old medina of Marrakech, near/in the souks. It's a nice walk of about 10 minutes through the shops to the famous Jemaa El Fna Square. You have to go through some small alleys to get to the ryad, but this is not really an issue. The alleys are fairly well-lit and there is even a private guard at the beginning of the alleys (although we don't really see why as we never felt threatened in Morocco).
Ryad itself : wonderfully decorated, more luxurious and with more eye for detail than the other 7 ryads we did. A fairytale from 1001 nights !
Rooms : very spacious and luxurious; no door between bathroom and bedroom but toilet and shower are separated from the rest of the room behind a wall.
Service : excellent ! Nourredine was the perfect host ! Candles were always lit, we were served as kings, he showed us around to a nice little restaurant and to the square, ...
Cats : the ryad has one or two house cats, very sweet and clean. We are cat-people so we liked this a lot, but for people who don't like cats : the cats are not very pushy... We were surprised to read in some reviews that people asked the owners to remove the cats. Besides that : if you don't like cats, you're better of not going to Marrakech at all as there cats everywhere !
Dinner : we never had dinner here, but 20 eur per person is a lot of money for food in Morocco. There are plenty of small restaurants in the medina where you enjoy a 3 course menu for around 10 euro per person (or even less).
Summarized : a perfect place for a citytrip to Marrakech !!!
