We stayed for 3 nights in this hotel. Our staying was nice and we appreciated many different things. Firstly, we did the check in at about 11 pm and when we arrived the owner assisted us to find the riad. The hotel is nearby the royal palace and the gendarmerie is very close, either. The area is very tranquil. The hotel is nice and simple. The room was good and comfortable. We had the air-conditioning which kept the room warm and we had heavy coverts the bed. I must complain a bit about the bathroom, instead. In fact, although the shower was very warm, there was not soap and we had to ask for it. Afterwards, they only offered 2 thin soaps for the whole permanence, 3 nights.The bathroom was smelling very bad, i suppose it was the sewer. They left our window open in the toilet but the smell was quite strong and we had to close the door any time. Also, there were little fly. The breakfast in the morning was in a nice area, very comfortable and we appreciated the owners getting up very early, preparing delicious food for the guests.there was cherry and fig jam, hot milk and coffee, mint tea and a glass of fresh orange juice. there was also some baguette. We did not like the arrangement of the breakfast tables. We had to sit and talk with other guests of the riad while doing our breakfast very early in the morning and this was uncomfortable. In fact, it was impossible to sit on your own, you must sit all together and if you do not talk it sounds a bit embarassing and rude. However, the hotel can book excursions and this is very good, and also they accept euros. They also changed the euros in dh when we need. The owners are very kind and helpful. Unfortunately the man does not speak english but just french, while his wife does.she is also very nice and she offered us some mint tea as a special treat. Neverhless, we were a bit disappointed when we left the hotel the last night because nobody was awake in the morning saying hello and we had nor a coffee nor our breakfast even tough we paid for it. It was the first of January, maybe the owners went to bed very late but we tought that if with guests you should be awake when they go and 7 am was not that early!
You must book your dinner the day before otherwise you cannot eat in the hotel. So, please, remember of doing that if you want to relax and have dinner inside the riad. This would be better and recommended because in marrakech there are not many restaurants for tourists. Alternatively, you can eat in the main square for a few money.
The hotel is also very close to the main square, a fair walking distance and very close to the bus station and the bus for the airport is number 19. they run since 6.15 am and every 30 minutes. It was very easy to get the bus in the early morning on the first of january. the roads were not busy and not dangerous at all. The services were still working. The bus station is in front of djemaa el-fna. If you prefer a taxi, the hotel can reserve one any time.
I would recommend the riad to every one who wants to come and relax in marrakech for a long journey.
