I instinctively booked this riad for my trip to Marrakech with my niece and I have to say my instincts were SPOT ON. Staying at Riad 41 MADE our time in Morocco magical - and I do not say that lightly.
When you come to Marrakech, you could be forgiven for feeling mild trepidation/excitement/anticipation all rolled into one. You want to make sure you have a quiet haven of tranquility and relaxation after the hussle and bustle of the medina. Make no mistake, Riad 41 is THAT PLACE!
Where do I start? I loved the look of Riad 41 based on the reviews and photos already posted on trip advisor - thank you to those people - you guided me well. The riad is exquisite. You will not be able to fault anything. I'm all about location and this is perfect. Secondly, the interior design is cool. Last but not least, Marina and Mark are the most generous, kind, helpful and hospitable people you could wish to meet and I have not felt more at home and relaxed on a holiday - period.
Amina and Mohammed are delightful - and happy in their work around the riad and let's not forget Gucci the cat who is so cute!
On a practical note, Marina and Mark instinctively know what you want and can readily arrange anything for you so there is no need to book anything in advance if you choose not to. Finally, we opted for their traditional Moroccan meal one evening and frankly, this was the best meal I have eaten in my life. I know I sound a little gushing but it is true and you will NOT be disappointed if you choose to stay here. Guaranteed! Thank you Riad 41 for making our stay PERFECT IN EVERY WAY. X
