As a family of five we booked two rooms for the four days we were spending in Marrakech, we wanted to stay in a traditional riad to feel the full sense of the Moroccan culture and, the medina. We were picked up from the airport by a very friendly driver which they had arranged for us and we were driven to the medina...the riad is very close to one of the gates (bab) to the medina, bab ailen....the staff were very friendly and spoke good english although we did try to use our limited french...we were shown a map and told about the area and what we would need. The staff were very helpful and kind and we opted to eat there every night at about £10 a head and it was definately worth it..the homemade moroccan cuisine was top class and the service was outstanding too. The riad were also able to arrange a say trip of all the main tourist attractions in the medina with the driver we had met before...for a small cost this trip was very helpful and we stopped at each place to enter and visit with the driver ready for us afterwards. The rooms wee very tidy and well furnished and had a lovely feel to it. There was also a terrace for sitting and relaxing on hot afternoons.
Our stay was very enjoyable.
