My wife and I visited Marrakech for the first time, did some research before holiday and decided to book Riad Admal based on the exceptional rating on tripadvisor. We were not disappointed at all, very nice place with very nice staff. We were made very welcome by Marie and her staff who are professional, charming and attentive. Our room was Labiba (small suite) which was perfect for 2 of us and well equipped. We must say that having sampled food in Marrakech during our holiday we are happy to say that Riad Ajmal serve some of the best food we had (booked the same morning we ate in the pleasant surrounding of the courtyard, sampling a range of different Tajines all cooked at the Riad by the staff, wine available also which is a nice touch in what is predominantly a alcohol free city). The staff were all very nice people, always willing to make a snack or serve mint tea or coffee whichever your preference, my wife is now a convert to mint tea (unsweetened as Moroccan style is highly sweetened). I have to say that eating at the Riad Ajmal is value for money. Mustafa arranged a trip for us to the Waterfall in the Atlas mountain region, his father is a perfect guide and his family perfect hosts for typical Moroccan Berber lunch...perfect thanks. This Riad is slap bang in the Medina, don't worry about sfaety, we felt totally safe during our stay and found the local peop[le around Bab Doukala area more htan friendly. Riad Ajmal has a sun terrace perfect for afternoon lounging and pampering by the staff, we didn't take advantage of a Hammam with Latifa but I am relaibly informed by my new mates Berber Dave and Berberette Moira that it is an enjoyable experience. Make sure you get Fatima to cook you something as she and Latifa certainly know good food. All in all very enjoyable, hope this review prompts you to try this Riad.
