When using Tripadvisor to arrange a holiday it is only polite to leave a review for others to make their judgements. Riad Assakina was chosen on the basis of the excellent feedback and for being a place to "chill out" for a few nights from a very busy busines life. I can only echo what others have said about this being an excellent base from which to enjoy all that Marrakech has to offer. We stayed in the Kiad Suite which provided all that is required. A large comfortable bed on a dais supplemented by a sitting area witha small TV with limited channels (who goes on holiday to watch TV?). A large bathroom with open shower, two sinks and all decorated with taste and flair. The Riad has been designed to be an oasis of calm in a hectic city and this it achieves with aplomb. Many places to sit, from rooftop terraces to little sun traps, an elegant courtyard and a warm and comfortable saloon. Breakfast is excellent and consists of fresh OJ, tea/coffee, pastries and a choice of "main". We principally opted for the fresh fruit with Morrocan yoghurt which was excellent. With any hotel however the surroundings are only a part of the whole and what inevitably makes the difference is the quality of the personnel. Here Grant and Michele have excelled. Staff members who are only too willing to assist, polite and welcoming with hosts who really do try to make sure that your trip and stay is a success. So many suggestions on where to eat, shop and relax are most welcome. Marrakech has plenty of places to stay but if you want something a little different and not one of the bland modern hotels then Riad Assakina must be your chosen "home".
