We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Marrakech and it was in no small part to Valerie and her team at Riad Cherrata. The small size (4 rooms) means you get a great personal service from a wonderful host and team, which you just cannot get in a large hotel. The Riad is right 'in the mix' of the old city and is only a 10 minute walk, down a busy, vibrant Marrakech street to the main square. The Riad is clean, comfortable, welcoming and quiet, which is nice after the hustle and bustle of the main squares and Souks. The breakfast provided is also a work of art.....breads, pancakes, french pastries, home made conserves, yoghurt and orange juice. Morrocon tea and treats on arrival was also a nice touch.
Valerie is the star of this Riad and helped us out with her hand drawn maps, supply of a local mobile, little box of leaflets, great recommendations of places to go/things to do, access to lots of guide books. If we had any questions she was always willing to help.
If you want an authentic Marrakech experience this is a geat base. Valerie and Riad Cherrata deserves all the praise of this review (and the many others), it is a great place to stay.
