Having visited Marrakesh before, we wanted to stay in more traditional accomodation and not a big hotel like we did last time. This riad is beautiful tucked away from the busy city. We would recommend asking the Riad to arrange airport transfer as it can be tricky to find if its your first time. Patrice and his team were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms we stayed in were very tastefully decorated, beds were comfortable, you can hear the call for pray and also the birds tweating. Some guests may have an issue with only a curtain seperating the bathroom and bed, but this didn't bother us. (We stayed on top floor. The overall ambience, deco and friendly staff by far outweigh the minor issues.
Once we were shown the map, it was very easy to get about. We casually walked in to the main square and to the souks, but if your not a fan of walking, taxis can be flagged down about a 3-5 min walk from the riad. The location of the Riad was perfect for us. They booked a private 4 x 4 to take us to the Altas mountains, which was perfect and definately a must do.
Only down side would be they didn't accept credit cards.
We would definately recommend this riad and hopefully we will return in the near future. Thank you Patrice, Hatchim and Abdul for making our stay so pleasant.
