Tried to write in danish, but Tripadvisor didnt like that. Well, this Riad is situated in the old original part of the city, the Medina. We were picked up in the airport and recommend doing so, as Marrakech is a bit confusing the first days of the stay. But after that you quickly learn your way around without getting too much lost. You pay the Riad for picking you up - and only the Riad!
The Riad is a small family owned hotel, where Sara and her family makes you feel very welcome. They are always smiling and friendly. All questions are being answered correctly and does not cost you extra (like outside these walls). And - most important - you can trust the information you get here. Sara gave us a very good description about finding our way around and a general info about the city and even about the whole society.
The included breakfast is excellent and plenty. Fresh orangejuice and pancakes every day :) We also had dinner some evenings, and you owe yourself to do that. Sara's mom is a very competent chef. Try her pastilla :) We really enjoyed the food here.
After walking around for hours in the narrow and noisy streets, it was a relief to enter the Riad again, where it was always very peaceful and quiet. All the rooms were beautifully decorated after local traditions. We liked that a lot.
They have cats in the Riad. They are cute, but beware - they might try to grap some leftovers from the table ;) And another thing. We were there in January, and it was a bit chilly. So remember to bring your warm clothes this time of the year, as dinners are served outside in the atrium.
Finally is just left to say many thanks to Sara, her brother and the rest of the familiy for a nice stay in Marrakech. We recommend others to stay in Riad Tamarrakecht.
