This riad is located in a less tourist-trodden part of the old medina....perfect for escaping the throngs of travellers and chaos of the souks. It's unpretentious, welcoming and tastefully decorated. You feel at home the moment you set foot inside. Housing 5 or 6 rooms, it is small but brimming with character and the perfect place for a relaxing sojourn. The staff were friendly and attentive and made every effort to make our stay as comfortable as possible. We opted for the 3-course dinner following a day trip to the mountains and were very pleased with the quality (and quantity) of the dishes and willingness of the staff to accommodate our dietary needs. The terrace was lovely and the perfect place for tea mid-afternoon or a soak in the sun. All in all, Riad Merstane is the ideal spot for a quiet few days in Marrakech.
