The riad was very pretty, and excellently located - 5 minutes from the Sadien Tombs and palaces and ten minutes to the big square. Despite being right in the middle of Marrakech, our room (no.8) was very quiet. The room was also comfortable, and large. We had a bedroom, sitting room and our own large, very private terrace with sun loungers and dining table. We had dinner up here twice and it was lovely.
The courtyard in the middle of the riad was lovely and quiet, and a great place to sit with your feet dangling in the cool water after a long hot day walking around the city.
The best thing about the riad without a doubt were the extremely friendly and welcoming staff who looked after us like we were family. Thank you to GPaulo, Muhammed, Eunice, Zara and Fatima. Zara and Fatima also prepared us a wonderful Marrakechi dinner - which was the best meal we had during our stay. Highly recommended.
