Staying at this Riad was the best possible choice for our holiday in Marrakech. Omar made us feel so welcome and comfortable that we were able to completely relax in his riad from the off...a great thing when the souqs and the medina begin to feel hectic and frantic after a long day of haggling! Omar gave us lots of great advice and guidance: going so far as to even walk us to his local hammam and explaining what we wanted in arabic to the people working there. This made for incredible experieces that we couldn't have organised without him. We're very grateful to and fond of Omar and all at the Riad.
The room was very clean - the bed was changed every day - and spacious. Our room was on the ground floor and in the morning the sound of the birds in the interior courtyard would wake us up. This was by no means a bad thing - what a lovely way to start the day! The riad is generally very secure and safe.
The provided breakfasts are lovely and plentiful, served on the roof when weather permits and are served whenever you want them.
It is hard to find though, I would definitely recommend contacting Omar ahead of your arrival. If possible, get picked up from the airport (he charges €15 which I feel is fair based on what taxis would charge) and the driver will walk you to the riad. If you don't do this then I'm afraid I don't see how you'd find the place without a guide, it would be almost impossible! Once you know how to get there (which isn't complicated once it's been explained to you in context), the riad is perfectly located. It's about 7 minutes walk to the main square and only about 5 minutes from a really fantastic bar - Cafe Arabe.
I highly recommend Riad Sidi Omar, I know that I'll be back!
