Right, so here's our review of this fantastic little Riad in Marrakech!! We were a party of 7 ladies on my alternative hen party (alternative meaning I wanted something classy!!) and we found Hotel du Tresor. I was going to book one of the Riad's within the top 10 in trip advisor but realised that a/ expensive b/ wasn't near the square where all the magic happens!
Amine was my point of contact and he's fantastic, we emailed backwards and forwards so many times that by the end I felt like I knew the team very well, even though we'd never met!!
First of all they arranged to pick us up from the airport (its only 10-15mins away) - upon arrival, we exchanged our money for Dirhams - I recommend taking some time and finding the BEST "to buy" rate in the airport - you can do it in the Souks - but it's pretty much the same.
Upon arrival - they arranged for Mint Tea and traditional Moroccan snacks by the chill pool - amazing! They then showed us ALL the amazing rooms - each individually and tastefully decorated. I stayed in Suite Bleu - its the only room on it's own on the "top floor" recommended for it's romantic decor, it's rolling bath tub and powerful shower!
That evening they arranged traditional Moroccan music and dinner for 20euros - I would so recommend!!! The music was great entertainment and the food by the in-house chef - Amina was the most delicious out of all the meals tasted in Marrakech!
We were allowed to bring our own alcohol which we chilled in the fridges and spent most of the time exploring Marrakech and sun bathing on the terrace.
There's so much to say about this Riad but not enough space - it's around 2-3minutes from the main square - so QUIET - it's unbelievable that's its just around the corner from the main square and souks.
We went to Les Bains hamman - which I'm not sure I'd recommend (see my review on this) as they overcharged by £100 and didn't even get an apology when I queried this.
We recommend Rose bar at Pascha as a night out - was great fun and finally - you can do pretty much everything by foot from this Riad - it was the perfect stay.
Thankyou so much to Amine and the team - they couldn't do enough for us and I felt like a princess in Marrakech :)
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A charming little hotel open since the 50s, just a few minutes away from Place Jemaa El Fna. This peaceful riad has been transformed by its Italian owner, its traditional style restored and enhanced by a keen selection of various objects originating most often from other historical hotels of the town. Respect for the old with a sense of the new. ... more less
