Riad du Lion
Ranked #937 of 1,187 Marrakech B&B and Inns
Reviewed October 13, 2011

We stayed at the Riad du Lion for four nights in September 2011. The first night we were fresh off the flight from London, it was already dark and we had no idea what to expect. However, Ahmed the manager of the riad was at the airport to meet us, took us in a taxi to the main square, escorted us across the square and down a narrow ‘street’ or two and in no time we were sharing our first mint tea in Morocco. We then dropped our bags and Ahmed escorted us back across the square to another riad for our first dinner (tagine and couscous of course) in Morocco. I mention all this detail because it set the tone for our next three days in Marrakech. Ahmed provided an excellent breakfast every morning, helped us with information and arranged a day-long tour outside the city. Our room was large and clean and the central courtyard cool and quiet. The riad is located just off the main square. Although the riad itself is quiet, the main square is noisy and chaotic most every night it seems. There is a partly obscured view of the square from the roof of the riad. The World Heritage medina is right at the door and the area is safe. It is an easy walk to anywhere in the old town. Friends stayed in the same riad 12 months earlier and received exactly the same excellent service. Overall, we were very fortunate that our lengthy visit to Morocco started off so well.
