This is the most wonderful place to stay, I fell in love with this Riad and with Marrakech, I was just sad we could only stay 1 night!
Great location, right near all the action. Service like nothing I've ever experienced before - we felt so well looked-after but in such a subtle way that wasn't intrusive at all. We arrived mid afternoon, early March and wanted to enjoy the warm afternoon sun before venturing out so went up to the roof terrace for a drink. The waiter appeared with our wine and a selection of yummy snacks. Very peaceful and relaxing start to our holiday.
I had been a little nervous of visiting the main square as I have a severe fear of snakes, however there was no need to worry - we managed to steer clear of the middle of the square and make it up to Cafe Paris and watch the sun set, looking down at the square and the thousands of people milling around and the wonderful sounds of the call to prayer. Incredible!
Our restaurant that evening was about 10 minutes walk away from the hotel and we were escorted all the way on foot, and collected when we had finished so that we wouldn't get lost!
Our room was very beautiful with huge bed, biggest shower I've ever seen and we had a living area too - but we would have been happy to stay in smaller room, they all looked beautiful. The whole Riad is very luxurious and chic, and spotlessly clean.
I think this is the most special place I've ever stayed, can't wait to go back!!
