Everything about our experience with the Lorsya was absolutely wonderful. Marrakech is an amazing city it will blow your mind. Outside the medina it's a modern bustling city but stepping into the huge medina is like travelling back in time. Buried in the quiet back alleyways is the Lorsya which is indeed an oasis in a medina that is manic. It´s perfectly placed within easy walk of all the action of the souks and Jmaa el fna.The staff were extremely helpful right from when we made the booking to our arrival, our stay, and the moment we left. They were discreet but always on hand if you needed them and they always exceeded expectations. They were happy to advise on everything from transport, restaurants, locations, normal prices etc. Indeed we should have asked them for a restaurant recommendation. Other guests heeded their advice to go to the Cafe Arabe just a few minutes walk away (Abdul will show you the way) which was just gorgeous. It was so cool and chic with several different areas to eat in, depending on your mood. We unfortunately followed our guides books recommendations to begin with and ended up most unfortunately at Le Tobsil was overall a dreadful experience.
The room we had, the Sherazade suite was divine, so evocative of the dark, alluring, mysterious Marrakech. It was luxurious and spacious and beautifully decorated. The riad has lots of nooks and crannies with several levels of roof terrace and you can eat or relax in any of them. The meal they provided on the first night was very good and breakfasts were excellent. Wine is not easy to come by in the medina but the staff ensured that a chilled bottle was always on hand.
We can't wait to go back to Marrakech if only just to sit on street corners and watch the teeming life. Everything on the streets from donkeys to limos, hand pulled carts to men carrying sheep on pushbikes! And when we do go back, we'll definitely stay at the Lorsya again.
