This was our first trip to Marrakech but we were made to feel completely at ease in a new culture. Christophe (the owner) organised transfers from the airport to the Riad which helped as we wouldn't have found it without help! We were welcomed with mint tea and cookies on the roof terrace and our luggage taken to our room. Christophe talked us through the places to visit, provided us with maps and told us the best/safest routes so we wouldn't get lost. He also told us rough price guides that we should haggle to so we didn't pay over the odds.
We ordered a meal for the first night so we didn't have to worry about finding a place to eat and it was by far the best meal we had in Marrakech. I would thoroughly recommend eating at least once in the Riad, it is a truly wonderful experience on the rooftop. Christophe also recommends other good places to eat for all price ranges despite them serving food at the Riad and offers to book tables for you.
The room was spotless and we had no problems whatsoever (make sure you put the plug down after showers like they say). We had a little trouble with the wifi at first but once we found the right place to sit it worked fine! Breakfast on the roof terrace each morning was magical and Abdul (the night porter) couldn't have done any more to help - despite the language barrier. The Riad was in a perfect location for visiting ALL of Marrakech and we would absolutely return! I would recommend it to everyone.
