Riad Assakina is perfectly located for experiencing all that the city of Marrakech has to offer. It is located within a leisurely walk of the busy souks, the main square and the prime sightseeing attractions. It also has a beautiful rooftop terrace for relaxing in the sun, taking refreshing dips in the pool or simply gazing at the beautiful views across the city towards the Atlas mountains.
Riad Assakina is elegantly furnished and beautifully decorated. Our room was spacious, with a focal point of a magnificent antique Moroccan robe hung from the wall behind the bed which harmonized with the colour scheme of the room. The bathroom was well-equipped with fresh towels, shampoo and soap and had a wonderful shower which delivered hot water at any time of the day. Discreetly built-in with Moroccan décor, our room had satellite TV, air-conditioning and additional heating (if we needed it). We had a lovely arrangement of fresh roses in our room, every morning fresh fruit would appear and in the evening, little chocolates would be placed temptingly on the freshly turned down bed. These little touches added to the wonderful ambience of Riad Assakina.
We were greeted on our arrival by the owners, Grant and Michelle, with genuine warmth and friendliness. Whilst we sipped our aromatic mint tea served to refresh us from our journey from London, Grant and Michelle provided useful tit-bits about the city, places of interest, advice on trips, favoured restaurants and good shopping areas. Although, we did not sample the dinner menu at the Riad, if it was anything like the breakfasts, it would be absolutely delicious. Each morning, wonderful smells would emanate from the tiny kitchen and we would be welcomed by fresh orange juice, freshly-prepared pastries, cakes, eggs and fresh fruit with local Moroccan yoghurt washed down with copious amounts of coffee. We had a wonderful few days at Riad Assakina and the entire staff made us feel at home as soon as we arrived.
Riad Assakina is the perfect location for a tranquil and peaceful break or for experiencing the bustle and intensity of Marrakesh. You won’t find a more ideal place to stay.
