Whilst this wonderful Riad is very accessible by taxi or even walking from the centre of the old town, it is hidden off the main street down a little back alley that twists and turns, making it wonderfully secluded. Once there (and I would recommend collection from the airport by Hassan), you cannot mistake the vibrant pink exterior. Claudia is a most gracious and welcoming host. Mint tea and delicious patisseries await your in your room. Ours was the suite, which was enormous, was delightfully decorated and had the most sumptious bathroom. Rooms are splayed around the central courtyard, which is open to the heavens, giving light and air. The riad is 10/15 minutes walk from the Place Jamaa el-Fna, and is located in the old Jewish quarter. This is hardly ever visited by tourists and is one of the few areas where you can get really lost (maps are of little help here) and not see another tourist until you emerge from the maze of little passagways. This can feel quite liberating or quite unnerving depending on how long you have been in Marakech.
Overall Angel's Riad is a wonderful retreat from the hectic, bustling fabulous city. It is also remarkable value and comes strongly recommended.
