Well what can I say? This riad is dripping with character and made our trip to Marrakech perfect. I am so glad we didn't settle for a western hotel. This riad is tucked away in a small cobbled street minutes away from the hustle and bustle of the souk.
We stayed in the beautiful triple room. The decor was outstanding and the beds were very comfortable with layers upon layers of bedding to keep us nice and warm (we went in December so the evenings turn very chilly) The toilet and shower were very clean which is I think says a lot about a hotel. The triple is only 46 euros a night, spilt that between three-cheap as chips!
In the morning we always took advantage of the HUGE breakfast which is needed for a day of haggling in the Souk. This consisted of a pot of tea each, glass of fresh orange, pancakes with honey, variety of pastries, egg with toast and yogurt all for under £10 for three people. In the evening you can sit up on the roof terrace overlooking Marrakech whilst sipping on a beautiful hot chocolate or mint tea. Remember no alcohol is served in Marrakech unless you are staying in a western hotel, but why would you want to stay there when you can live and breathe what its all about. Waiting to get served for breakfast was sometimes a little slow, but I think thats mainly because we went at a quiet time of year so we did have to sit and wait for quite sometime before the waiter knew we were there, but again this is just a little niggle.
The staff in the hotel were all extremely friendly and helpful. I would recommend this hotel and this one only to anyone I knew jetting off to Marrakech.
Marrakech itself is full of culture and quite a shock from your usual european break away or beach holiday. In the evening everything comes to life, the streets are filled with musicians, snake charmers, acrobats and food sellers. Animal lovers beware, some of the sights can be a little upsetting as these are working animals. Remember most of Marrakech's inhabitants fulfil muslim religion obligation, so you should be respectful of this. Wearing shorts and skimpy vest tops is a bad idea. Cover up and dress modestly and you will not receive unwanted attention.
This is the cheapest holiday I have ever been on! I took £130 for three days spending money, this bought me breakfast, lunch and a three course dinner (overlooking the market) every day, shopping every single day (2 leather bags, 2 pairs of leather shoes, necklace, little presents for back home) and I didn't struggle at all.
A beautiful city but this hotel made it extras special! Happy travelling...
