Having visited Palais Sebban for the 2nd time in October. After visiting with my mom in October 2011 we'd had such a fantastic time and decided to return.
The Riad can arrange a private transfer from the airport, which I would recommend especially if you are arriving at night in the dark, but this year we were quoted one price for the transfer and charged another price (more) so just be careful.
The riad is ideally located as it is just a 5 min walk to the main square in one direction and the souks in the other directoin and most of that walk is done on a well lite main road, where as some raids are located far down the smaller alley in the middle of the medina but this wasn't it was right by the edge of the medina near the city walls and wasn't too far down one alley. As we were 2 ladies on our own and a little nervous about the whole experience of the dark alleys the first year, we found this raid to be in such a good location.
The riad is just so quiet and idilic and it's mad when you step out of the main door the buzz of the city hits you.
Each time we have stayed we have had lovely rooms, both deluxe which means you get a room with more space. This year we were in one of the suites on the roof which was great as there were 3 of us, so we had a double bedroom and a large sitting room with 2 sofa beds in it, the only down side was it was a little noisy in the night with the call to prayer.
Breakfast and dinner are served in the courtyard which again so quiet and tranquil in such a buzzing and noisy city. We only ate dinner in the riad on the first night as it was a bit late to be out finding places to eat, but please do not stay in every night as there are some amazing places to try.
The Raid is very clean and well looked after. The staff are very friendly and happy to help you. There is an amazing smell throughout the riad as they have many oil burners going.
This year we tried the Hammam as there was a special offer on and it cost about £10 per person, its definatley an interesting experience and one worth trying.
Both myself and my mom were nervous the first time we visited Marrakech but having loved it the first year we were keen to go back this year. There are some amazing bars and restarants to try and so much to see and do we found ourselves out all day and hardly used the facilities within the riad.
