If you are looking for something a bit different from the usual tourist hotel experience then Riad 58 Blu provides authentic, comfortable accommodation coupled with personal, friendly service. Paolo, the owner, assisted by Mohammed and 'Smile' make guests very welcome and go out of their way to see new arrivals quickly familiarised with their surroundings.
The included airport transfers are a welcome essential in getting to and from Riad 58 Blu with our driver waiting for us for over an hour due to a delayed flight and walking us to the door of the Riad with our luggage. Within an hour of arrival at the Riad we were served with a welcome mint tea and guided by 'Smile' through the narrow streets and alleys to a money change facility and then to a recommended restaurant off the main square.
When staying in the Riads around the Medina be prepared to rub shoulders with the locals and experience life in the raw. Expect to be wakened by the Muezzin's call to prayers at the nearby mosque and dodge the constant flow of scooters, bicycles and donkey carts which stream around the alleyways. Whilst we always felt safe, the enclosed alleyways and streets can be intimidating at first and 'Smile's' introductory walk to the big square was a reassuring help in navigating to and from the Riad.
In summary Riad 58 Blu provides a welcoming, peaceful and comfortable resort from the bustle and heat of Marrakech.
