In Marrakech, one has to consider that a lot of Riads exist, also with a large amount of really good ones with beautiful rooms and exceptional service. However, after travelling Morocco for 2 weeks and staying in 3 different Riads in Marrakech, Riad Rafaele is simply the best!
Aside from the fact that it was the cheapest of these three, we got the most for our money.
The whole building as well as the rooms are perfectly well designed, luxurious, clean and the service is more than exceptional. First of all, we had the chance to get to know the owners as well as the staff without lacking our privacy. This allowed us to learn about the country and the culture but also to receive tips and helpful ideas for our further travels (including how to get along in Morocco more easily as European tourist which is quite important!).
The most important thing for me is that I felt if Riad Rafaele is not owned out of profit-maximizing reasons but rather due to personal motivation of how to spend the years after retirement. This particular motivation is reflected in any way one can imagine.
For me, the only reason why Riad Rafaele is not listed number 1 in Marrakech can only be the fact that of short existence and only 5 rooms, thus having received fewer recommendations so far.
I would describe myself as an experienced traveller and to sum it up: this place is amazing and you miss a lot if you stay elsewhere!
