Our first trip to Morocco was a HUGE success mostly in part of this wonderful Riad. We arrived late in the evening and the manager that evening came out to meet us in the hectic Jemma el-Fnaa. He answered all of our questions, provided a map and gave us excellent tips on the DO's and DONT'S. Throughout our time there staff was incredibly helpful, and kind.
The accommodations are also incredible. You step into the main area and are greeted by a beautiful orange tree and sounds of the fountain. Complimentary mint tea (yum), and breakfast are both provided. Both of those are a huge plus, especially considering the breakfast is pretty large (picture attached) and includes freshly squeezed orange juice and homemade yogurt!
The Riad would have been very difficult to find if we had not arranged an escort from the hotel in advance. We flew in late at night and would NEVER have found this well hidden gem. It is down one of the many side allys connected to the souks, and one simple wrong turn could really lead you astray. However the staff is willing to meet you at Cafe De France (in the main square) and walk you to the Riad-- which is extremely helpful.
Also there is no swimming pool. But what it lacks in pool it makes up in accommodations, location, price and staff.
Overall we had an incredible experience here and plan on revisiting in the future. The Raid itself is magical! You really feel like you are staying in a luxury B&B Moroccan style. The staff does a wonderful job cleaning and making sure your room always has what you need.
If you are questioning where you want to stay-- DONT, just stay here! I swear I sound like and advertisement, but I am not. I am just a girl used to staying in cheap budget hostels who stumbled upon this place (for an amazing price) and was treated like a princess. Any time I travel to Marrakech I will stay here.
