We visited Marrakech as a group of five 40-something female friends to celebrate a big birthday for one of our group. We chose Riad Chi Chi on the basis of the photos and the reviews and we were not disappointed. You could not be better placed to visit the souk as the Riad is situated virtually in the middle of it but this does not mean that it is noisy. It is very tranquil and you would not know that it is all going on outside the main door! The Riad is situated down an alley which was initially intimidating but it was very well lit at night and the locals were all very friendly. The service throughout our stay was excellent from the moment of arrival at the airport. The Riad arranged for us to be met by a driver who transferred us to porters who took our luggage and us straight to the Riad. Throughout our stay Saleh who runs the riad could not have been more helpful. He always offered to escort us if we needed to find our way, he booked restaurants for us and even waited up every night to make sure we got safely home. We had a fantastic meal at the Riad one night and breakfast was always good and served at whatever time we surfaced. The Riad was spotlessly clean and the rooms very comfortable. There seem to be thousands of riads in Marrakech but we would recommend this riad to anyone. We do not think you could get better service anywhere else.
