It was a smooth journey from the airport to the Riad, having let the owner (Philippe) know in advance the day before on email. Upon reaching we were immediately greeted with tea and snacks and given a run down on possible places to visit, general tips for travel and a helpful answer to our many many questions. The Riad is located very close to the Medina (about 5 min walk) and although the little roads can get confusing we were provided with a map that helped us navigate our way around. The rooms were very comfortable and the only small problem we faced was the heat of the water from the shower which fluctuated between cold to scalding. Apart from this, breakfast was wholesome and delicious all three days, the guard Mohammed was a star with any little requests we had post dark and it really is a beautiful building. I don't think I'd visit Marrakech again but if I were to, I'd stay here. Thanks Philippe!
