We loved this Riad. Me and my two children stayed here for three nights in May 2012. After our hectic introduction to the Medina's street life (which is initially quite shocking for the children who had never left Europe) the Riad was a haven. Incredibly clean and calm with both a plant filled roof terrace and a little pool in the central courtyard where a bird filled tree grows right up to the sky and there are numerous well attended plants in pots. The children adored the pool and were in it as often as possible. The lady running the Riad was very thoughtful, informative and friendly (in french). The breakfast was delicious. Incredibly light fresh crusty bread with creamy butter and honey, fresh orange juice and coffee. What could be better?
We were the only guests in the hotel which is small in any case and had the whole place to ourselves in the evenings which was magical. I tended to watch the moon and stars and enjoy the calls to prayer on the roof terrace, and the children played in the pool or surfed the internet with the efficient WiFi. I imagine they do evening meals in the busier periods but not on this occasion so we were a little lost as to what to do for supper as the main square and restaurants are a little way off. I would have appreciated some coffee/tea making facilities for a reassuring beverage!
The Riad is situated near one of the Medina Gates which means there is a walk through the old Medina streets before arriving at the more touristy area around Djemma el Fna. We enjoyed this short daily walk which gave us a fascinating glimpse into the real day to day life of Marrakech.
The next time we come to Morocco we will definitely return.
