I read the reviews for this Riad and was amazed so had no hesitation in booking it for a week on a B&B basis. I wasnt expecting the Ritz for these prices and I certainly didnt get the Ritz. We had upgraded to a superior room but my goodness it wasnt what we expected. The room was tiny, a small double bed, two bedside lockers that were stuck so they coulndnt be open without a struggle, a little wrought iron coffee table with chairs, a dressing table and a small wardrobe. If that wasnt enought the room was very dirty, the carpets had not been vacuumed in a long time, the dust on the bedstead was thick,and to cut a long story short everything was grubby and shabby. We werent sure if the bed had been changed the sheets were creased and had a few hairs in it, we ended up taking them off and shaking them and putting them back on upside down. Needless to say we didnt sleep very well (late arrival time so couldnt go elsewhere). It's not over folks........the shower had creeping black mould, the light fitting had bare wires and no shade, the towels were disgusting very very thin and hard with ground in dirt and the toilet....well I'll let you use your imagination.
We were offered another room but on inspection they were all the same. Dont know where the standard rooms were, we were taken to all but one of the rooms so if you do ignore this review dont pay for an upgrade there doesnt seem to be any.
please dont spoil your holiday by picking this place there are so many great riads in the medina.We lost a whole day getting somewhere else because everywhere was booked but eventually got a fantastic Riad but at a cost. Marrakech is AMAZING you just have to learn to say No thanks a lot of the time.
