The Riad itself is very pleasant, with beautifully decorated rooms and common areas. Since Riads are very small - this one has 7 rooms and actually is larger than average - we felt as if we were staying in a private home. I left my laptop and my files in one of the living rooms when I went for a nap, just like I would at home.
The location is in a quiet alley, but just off bustling Rue de la Kasbah. From there you reach famous Jemaa el Fna Square in about 10 minutes on foot, an easy walk along busy streets. You will not get lost. All of this is within the Medina, the walled city of Marrakech, with all its charming noise and confusion. We always felt safe - the local people are actually quieter and less agressive than their reputation. This is a Moroccan city, definitely, but the people are very used to tourists.
The staff and the owner Alix were wonderful hosts. We had a lively 2 year old baby with us, and they had all the patience in the world when we asked for warm milk at two o'clock in the morning. We also had a wonderful dinner there one night, very romantic. They recommended and booked excursions with reliable drivers, we were very pleased.
Rid Amira is not a hotel and people who book this or any other Riad need to be aware of this. Riad Amira is a B&B, where you literally feel like you are staying in a private home with family - and a very nice family it is - at Riad Amira!
