As always I chose this Riad with the help of Tripadvisor, we weren't disappointed so much so my wife wishes to celebrate her 50th birthday here. We started our trip with a driver waiting to pick us up at the airport eliminating the stress of finding the location off our own devices.
As others have described being inside the Medina isn't for the faint hearted but we wanted the experiences for our 2 boys (!2,10) as well as ourselves. Yes its true entering the riad from the "easiest" side for the tourists can be off puting but this is the same throughout the Medina.
This is what one wants when trying to imagine what it was like in the medina say 100 yrs ago?? yes??
We ordered the apartment (jasmine) where we had a queen size bed and another bedroom where 2 single bed were placed. Apartment was stylishly decked out and a bathroom to match.Towels changed every day. Breakfast is modest with a basic continental "moroccansk style" with heaps of mint tea and to drink. You won't be bursting at your belt buckle but its adequate :)
We found the staff were pleasant and helpful with our questions we had them to organise our bus tickets to Essaouira as well as transfers around the medina to the new part of Marrakesh.
We never ate at night time but we did have our christmas there and together with their sister riad Charma/Sharma we enjoyed our christmas dinner at riad dharma.
Those who enjoy a quiet wine at the end of a hectic day must realise that there is no alcohol served inside of the Medina , however it is allowed for the riad's guests to consume what they purchase inside the riad.
Our stay wasn't 100% perfect but when we needed to be heard, management addressed our concerns with the professionalism I would expect as a paying customer.
In finishing would I stay here again?? Absolutely!! staying at the riad was a highlight of our trip!!
