Marrakech was hot and slightly manic as we arrived in the bus station, arranged a taxi and made our way to Riad Schaden. We were met by a member of staff (Said) at Bab Aylen and escorted and helped with bags to the Riad. First impressions were great as the Riad is in a local Morrocan neighbourhood away from the hussle and bussle of the main square. Once in the Riad it was beautiful. The photos above don't quite do it justice.
The raid is over three floors with ground floor having communal sitting and dining with two rooms. Frist floor has four rooms and a suntrap roof terrace with shaded seating area. I was in a room on the second floor which was beautifully decorate and as with all the rooms was en suite. The shower was hot and the bed was soft (not standard throughout Morroco.)
The staff were freindly and very helpful. both Said and Yousseff spoke good English and were always on hand to make sure the trip was going as expected.
Even though the Riad is away from the business of the main square (which is brilliant to get some peace in the evening after exploring Marrakech) it's a very straightforeward 15 (20 if the streets are budy) walk to the main square.
I would happy recommend anyone to stay at Riad SchadenMore
