We stayed at this riad as a group of 8 friends exploring Marrakech.
After a short drive from the airport, we were dropped off at the medina and shown to the riad, which is a 5 minute walk away as it cannot be reached by road. Our suitcases were transported via a cart, which was great as we didn't have to navigate the narrow streets dragging our cases!
At the riad we were welcomed with traditional Moroccan tea which was a lovely gesture, and shown around the riad by Ahmed the housekeeper.
The riad is absolutely beautiful and the decoration throughout is stunning. The terrace on the roof is great to chill out in after a busy day exploring the medina, and there are plenty of sofas, chairs and loungers for everyone to relax.
Each bedroom was individual and the bathroom facilities were of a very high standard. The riad was kept spotless by the housekeeper, and a kitchen and dining room are available if you wish to cook.
The location of the riad is great. A 5/10 minute walk takes you to Jemaa el Fna square, which is full of restaurants, stalls, and is surrounded by the famous souks. At night it is crazy, with entertainment, singing, dancing etc. The riad however is far enough away that you don't hear any noise from the square at night.
Ahmed, the housekeeper, was a brilliant help throughout our stay. He was full of useful information about where to go and what to see across Marrakech. He helped us organise a trip to the Atlas Mountains (which is highly recommended) and also organised a traditional Moroccan cooking lesson for us in the riad with Fatima, which was brilliant.
I would recommend the riad to anyone heading to Marrakech.
