We recently spent five nights at Riad el Mansour on the recommendation of a friend and it lived up to expectations.
The hotel is decorated in a traditional Moroccan style rather than a minimal or modern style that decorates many similar hotels. It was filled with beautiful art, paintings and furniture, with a great attention to detail. The staff were more than helpful and made us feel very welcome. The recommended some restaurants to visit and I would recommend Al Fassia. The breakfast was served on the roof terrace and was delicious.
We stayed in double room which was actually much larger than it looked on the website. The bed was extremely comfortable, bathroom well fitted out and some lovely surprises were waiting for us (which I won’t give away). Again, I was impressed with the attention to detail, even the soap was beautiful!
I was surprised to find that the riad was located at the end of an alley but soon discovered this is the case with most riads in Marrakech. It turned out to be easy to find and we didn’t get lost. The hotel is situated in the medina in a less touristy area, but close to the main sites. This was an advantage because it was full of local life and colour rather than people trying to sell you things. Everyone seemed very friendly.
My friend was right, I would recommend Riad el Mansour.
