This review is a bit overdue, and a bit repetitive considering the comments below, but we had an absolute amazing stay. As it was our first time to Morocco, my friend and I did tons of research on riad/hotel options before finally picking Riad Elizabeth. We definitely weren't disappointed. The location is great, the rooms and decor are spotless, and the price is fair. The real gem is however the incredible staff at this Riad. There are so many we want to thank, but here are a few. We probably couldn't have survived without Dagmara, the manager, who fielded frantic calls from us at midnight when we got lost in the labyrinth that is the streets of Marrakech (Note: MEMORIZE the map that the Riad gives you. or be prepared to pay the touts. or be like us and run away from anyone offering help and pray that circling the same streets multiple times will somehow lead you to your desired destination). Ask her for help booking excursions, her favorite shops in the souks, etc. We took a tagine cooking class (HIGHLY recommended) with Bahija (the cook) and Aisha, both of whom are among the kindest people you will meet. Plus, their cooking is mouthwateringly good. Random notes: 1) we are heavy sleepers so basically ignored the call to prayer, but be warned (this is a general Middle East thing); 2) take advantage of the mint tea (sooo good); and 3) don't assume you'll just magically remember how you got from point A to point B when there are a million indistinguishable points in between. Long story short: five star at Riad Elizabeth. Looking forward to coming back (soon)!
