If only every B&B or hotel had service that the team at Riad Kheirredine strives to offer then the world would definitely be a better place! Having stayed at several hotels across the world and in the Middle East and North Africa, I can say with confidence that Valentina, Yajaindra and the rest of the crew (Ismail,...) made genuine and heartfelt efforts throughout our stay to ensure we had a great stay.
Right from the moment we inquired about a possible reservation through to our arrival and eventual departure they look after every small request. Wonderful to see such places and such staff still exist, even if they are a rare breed!
This lovely little B&B is a gem, hidden away in one of small alleys of the Medina (GPS location: 31.6375N, 7.99327W) direction North-North-West of the famed square: Djeema El Fna. which is ca. 20-25 min walk away through the fascinating "Derbs" or alleys of the Medina. If the Medina the chaotic and confusing in its very nature, the Riad Kheirrdeine is an oasis of beauty and tranquility in the midst of the ancient Medina of Marrakech -- a "city" within the city that is a UNESCO world heritage site.
Consisting of 8 rooms only with a total capacity of 17 guests it is a reminder that life's sweetest treasures comes in small bites. The rooms, all named after flowers/trees (Jasmine, Musk, Amber ...) are each differently themed and of varying sizes. Jasmine and Eucalyptus are suites while Musk is a small room more appropriate for accompanying children. The Riad has an excellent terrace which is great for lounging in the sun or a meal which we highly recommend. The "Living" room in front of the Patio serves as a pleasant dining area.
Breakfast is included in the rates and is sumptuous. We would also recommend at least one dinner at the Riad; the staff prepare an excellent and very generous meal of four courses which is a treat in itself.
All day they offer unlimited complimentary beverages -- tea, coffee, water, etc. Service too is discreet and very efficient and this includes a bed turn down service which is exceptional for a B&B.
We would recommend asking for their transportation service to/from the airport/city. They offer reasonable rates and regardless of how you choose to arrive, they will receive and see you off from/to the taxi stand Sidi Ben Slimane which is 5-7 min. walk away.
Another tip: Ask for a courtesy mobile phone when you walk around the Medina in case you lose your way; they will help you get back and even come and fetch you.
