I was recommended the Assakina by two sets of work colleague who had visited over the last two years, and all I can say is that I (we) will defiantly be recommending this Riad to any one who wishes to visit Marrakech. We stayed for 5 days (4nights) mid March for a girlie break of shopping, pampering and no housework!
Marrakech is crazy, anything goes and watch out for the mopeds and donkeys you need eyes in the back of your head, but then you come home to the Assakina which is so peaceful, beautiful and relaxing. The rooms are magical and all different, we were very lucky and upgraded to one of the suite. Nothing is too much trouble for Michele, Grant and their staff, to make sure your stay is a memorable one, from helping with charging the mobile phone to advising you on where to visit, eat and best shopping and prices. We tried a different breakfast each morning and wished we could have stayed longer to try them all out, (one morning we went up to the mountains, early, and Michele arranged a packed breakfast for us, which was not expected but gratefully received) as I said earlier nothing is too much trouble.
On our first morning Michele walked with us to help us familiarise ourselves with the area, easiest walk to the Medina, our local restaurants etc, what a service.
Overall a fabulous place to stay, the hospitality of everyone is amazing, good location for Medina etc.
A big thank you
