We absolutely loved this little gem of a place...the staff could not have been more helpful or welcoming - it felt like we were staying with a family!
Moad, Sherif, Amina, Rashida and even the owner Marie (and her adorable little girl!) who happened to be there whilst we were, constantly asked if we needed help with getting anywhere, with ideas of where to go and what to do...and the manager Moad didnt get annoyed once at our incessant asking for the Jacuzzi to be heated up again and again (so luxurious and romantic!).
Even the drivers Aziz and Isham were like a part of the big Riad family, with Isham taking us on our Atlas Mountains trip. Really informed and intelligent and with alarmingly good English, Isham made sure our day was one to enjoy despite the torrential rain!
Despite the weather not being the greatest we were still able to have breakfast outdoors every day (served on terrace/ courtyard/ in your room), and the roof terrace was perfect for when the sun did come out!
The Riad is located a short walk away from the hub of the action and despite other travellers saying it could be hard to find- with Moads excellent map lesson, we didnt get lost once! The souks and square are about a ten minute walk from the riad (providing you dont get lost in the maze of the souks (which you will) but soon enough you get your bearings and know what to look out for to make your way back!
Exploring Marrakech is an exotic and exciting treat, and it almost feels like you've gone back in time...more impressive as its actually so close to Europe! I would definately go again, and no doubt would stay in the beaitiful Riad 02, and will without hesitation reccomend friends who are thinking of visiting this beautiful City.
