This Riad is in the middle of the Souk, We were apprehensive when the taxi driver told is we would have to put our luggage on a barrow and walk the last 10 minutes to the hotel as the taxi cannot negotiate the narrow alleys. Then, directly from the airport, you find yourself walking through the sights, noise and smells of a Marrakech souk.
The reception at the Riad is fantastic, mint tea awaits you in this island of calm amid the bustle of the streets around. It must once have been a wealthy merchant's home, beautifully renovated with ornate ceilings and distinctive rooms. The staff, especially Abdellatif, are attentive and reassuring; they patiently answered all our questions, helped when necessary and made our stay most pleasurable and interesting.
Okay the water could have run stronger in the shower and some things didn't always work perfectly, but this is not a western style five star hotel (thanks goodness). What it lacked in amenities it more than made up for in character. The rooftop terrace and breakfast were a joy.
We would recommend the experience.
