“Everything I Wanted and More”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2009

Elegant. Tranquil. Beautiful. Welcoming. Surprising. The Riad Jenai in Marrakech is all of these things and more, while staying extremely affordable.

In a perfect location very close to both the Mosquee Ben Youssef and the Medersa Ben Youssef, in the heart of Marrakech's labyrinthine Medina (old city), the Riad is a 10-minute walk from the Place Jemaa Al-Fnaa, the center of Marrakech. But don't count on it taking 10 minutes to get there your first time - count on getting completely lost! "Go straight" takes on a new meaning in Marrakech's souks - twists and turns are par for the course.

But no worries, Riad owner Yannick and his employee Youssef are available for your every need and take pleasure in helping you at every turn. As a solo traveler in need of company, Yannick and Youssef were there to give me directions, to recommend restaurants and things to do, and to provide lively conversation.

And then there's the Riad itself. Walk in and you immediately feel like you're in another world, a veritable arboretum. Impeccably decorated, the Riad's common spaces are perfect for a relaxing afternoon reading. And the rooms themselves (4 of them) are gorgeous, spacious with huge bathrooms, and unique. The terrace has a perfect view over the entire medina as well as a pool, and breakfast on the terrace is an otherworldly experience.

All this for 50 euros a night in November. You can't ask for a whole lot more. Unfortunately, I was only able to stay for 2 nights. But whether you're looking for a relaxing romantic getaway or to experience the fast-paced life of Marrakech, the Riad Jenai is for you. Highly recommended. Check out their website: www.marrakechmedina.com for more information.
