We have just returned from three nights at Riad al Mamoune and would recommend to others who are looking for central, good value for money and welcoming accommodation in Marrakech. The Riad is located just off the main El Fna Square, takes about 5 minutes to walk there from the square. The Riad is not accessible by car, so be prepared to walk the last bit of your journey. The owner, Manu, came to meet us so there was no problem finding the place...... It's quite tucked away! The hotel staff are very attentive and special mention must be given to Ali who works in the Riad doing a great job of welcoming guests, giving local info, arranging trips and excursions, making tea and generally keeping everything going. There are six rooms, some quite small but we stayed in elf Lila wa Lila room which is very large and has a seating area in addition to the bedroom section of the room. The bathrooms are small and rustic with plenty of hot water. Overall, the rooms are rustic and traditional. There's air conditioning, a must in the 45 degree heat of July, and safe for valuables. There are no locks on the outside of the bedroom doors, that took a bit of getting used to! Once inside the room, you can lock from the inside. Breakfast was simple but nicely done, with green tea or coffee, pancakes and freshly squeezed orange juice with eggs as an optional extra. We went on an excursion to the Atlas mountains one day which was a good trip, make sure you wear good walking shoes as does involve some climbing. We also did the hamman bath and massage which was a fun experience!
