We arrived late into Marrakech and had no idea what to expect. Having arranged a hotel transfer from the airport we were thrilled that our ride was still waiting for us. It was not super late but late enough that the airport was pretty much shut down. Once we arrived near the Riad we were met by Abdul to be walked to the Riad. Boy are we glad he met us, those alleyways are tricky! Once inside we were offered mint tea and cookies which we gladly took. There was a slight snag checking in because they did not take credit cards (I think the machine was down) and we did not have any dirhams since the ATMs at the airport were closed when we got there. Ultimately we had some Euros and paid part of our stay with that and got some money when we went out that day. But the staff was very accommodating. Breakfast was good and our rooms were nice and clean. Being American we are used to fans and air conditioning so it was warm but we still slept rather well. Our second room did have a broken shower head that caused the bathroom to be a little soaked abut we made it work because we were to tired to care that much! We stayed at the beginning and end of our trip since we went on a camel trek in between. It would have actually been nice to stay longer as I would imagine the longer you stay the more it feels like home. Oh and if they ask you if you want to arrange a tour guide your first day in town I would recommend it! We got great directions and still managed to get lost a few times!
