We were 3 female friends travelling to marrakesh for a break in the sun for 5 nights, I would however advise going in a cooler month- july/august it was hitting 50 degrees and we were trying to be especially respectful with our attire as it was ramadan.
ROOM-thankfully we had the suite room upstair which had aircon! we also had a room downstair it wasn't too hot but didn;t have aircon. The suite was clean, well decorated and great value for money.
RIAD AND SERVICE- . Aziz was a great host greeting us with mint tea and biscuits and we were able to treat this place like home although if u arriving after 5 he speak limited english so brush up on your french. He will also offer to find you if u get lost so they do make you feel safe espec if you solo women travelling. Mourad( who is there during the day) speak good english and is helpful but:
DO NOT GET MOURAD TO GET YOU A TAXI ANYWHERE WHEN YOU HAVE ARRIVED( ie to a hamman etc), HE WILL SEVERELY RIP YOU OFF, don't pay more than around 30 dirhams for 2/3 people in total( not per person) during the day, to get to most places ie gueliz, hivernage.
DO however Get the airport transfer on the way there although its pricy and be warned you will get out the taxi and your bags with be pulled in cart to riad ( road isn't wide enough) but its worth it, it is difficult to find 1st time - everyone gets lost first time in the medina but thats the fun of it .
LOCATION- good and central This riad was a welcome peaceful place in the middle of the madness of the medina and situated close to the souks and the square
You get the real Moroccan experience staying in the middle of the medina. It is also clean, safe and welcoming and quiet. The breakfast is simple but pleasant and the terrace and little plunge pool are a lovely place to relax in the midday sun.I would recommend this place to stay in Marrakech.
