I agree with all the previous reports in that this is a fantastic place to stay to experience the real Medina in Marraketch. Everything is a walkable distance from the riad and once inside the closed door you experience wonderful tranquility, beautiful surroundings and amazing staff. Abdul and Yossin couldn't have been more helpful and even give you a mobile phone to call them if you get lost in the souk! The breakfasts were first class but you must arrange an evening meal at the riad, it was the best meal we had in Marraketch. In essence, the customer care would rival a top notch hotel and a fraction of the price. Take up the offer of their taxi from the airport and Yossin meets you at the Medina taxi rank as you'll never find the riad on your own! All the rooms looked lovely, each being slightly different. Toiletries are provided (and topped up each day), slippers, fluffy bathrobes, hairdryer, mini fridge with soft drinks, air con, flat screen TV with all the British channels, wi-fi and even an ipod docking station - all available in your room. These guys have got it just right, I would'nt change a thing.
