For me, the best hotel I have ever stayed in. Not because of the wonderful, well located building, lovely rooms strewn with rose-petals and delicious food, but because of the truly astounding welcome and service. Owners Muriel and Laurent are wonderful hosts, and a stay in the riad is like a few days with your best friends. Our visit started with a 45-minute chat over mint tea and biscuits, during which we has a crash-course in the best that Marrakech has to offer by way of sights and places to eat and drink. Tips on how to handle the locals, how to avoid getting lost and so-on were absolutely spot on. The rest of the staff were incredibly obliging - real 'service with a smile'. I would happily have moved in! During our four days we had a free room upgrade, a bottle of a better wine than the one I ordered just because Laurent wanted us to try it, help booking our onward journey - so many small kindnesses - oh and if you ask for a bottle of complimentary water to take out for the day, it comes in an insulated contained with a shoulder strap - typical of the way things are done here.
