It is impossible to convey the level of service you get in this fantastic Riad. Nothing is too much trouble, There are only 4 rooms in this beautiful palace like building so you feel like you have the place to your self a lot of the time.It feels like you are at home in your very own mansion being waited on hand and foot.
The food is second to none and the wine is also good. Contrary to a previous review you do not have to have a full 3 course meal and can choose how many courses you want. In my opinion the service surpasses that of a five star hotel. Only the smallest room was left when we booked but even that was lovely.
It is far better to stay in the Medina because you acclimatize yourself to the the bustle and excitement that is Marrakesh and can enjoy it rather than being overwhelmed. So Riad 72 is perfect. It is in a less touristy area with its own little souk and you can get an idea of real life in the city. Yet is is bang smack next to all the action. Don't listen to people who tell you to stay in the modern part of the city. You will really miss out on the experience if you don't stay in the Medina.
The hotel organised an official guide for us on the first day and I would really recommend this. It was brilliant, we saw all the sights without being hassled and after that we had got our bearings and could navigate around like seasoned travelers.
Alcohol is not on general sale in Marrakesh so if you like a drink, it is essential to stay somewhere like this that serves alcohol.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Riad 72 is a romantic retreat that mixes the best of modern Moroccan craftsmanship with contemporary Moroccan design. It has its own private hammam and, thanks to its lushly planted patio, fountain and water features, songbirds are often found here serenading the guests. The terrace is one of the highest of the medina. It offers incomparable views over the old city and onto the majestic Atlas mountains: ideal for soaking up the sun or a sunset aperitif. ... more less
