Abdel was the perfect host for our stay and in fact made our stay. Staying in a riad gives you a really genuine Morrocan experience. He kindly upgraded us when we arrived and provided us with the best tea in the city. The Riad is about a 15 minute walk from the medina, this is fine once you get used to it - a bit of a culture shock the first couple of times but a great experience and there was always a warm welcome when you get back to the riad which was lovely. Read about what and what not to do when Marrakech, our research beforehand was invaluable. Enjoy

The room smelled of damp, it was spacious though. I had to ask for the keys for them to give me them which i thought was a bit weird, but i guess is just the culture. Wifi didn't work in my room. Breakfast was not that nice and the orange juice was carton juice, not natural (considering the orange is so cheap over there!!). The swimming pool doesn’t work. The staff was friendly though and the manager had a good conversational English.

We had a wonderfull stay in Riad Kalinka Lotus with Abdel. He was a great host, very friendly and willing to make our holiday a special one. He was not just a host in his Riad but also he adviced us about several things and organised some of our trips to the Atlas mountain and to the coast, with an excellent, german and english speaking driver (Samir) and a good car. The Riad is a very quiet place, which was cleaned by Souad in a very friendly and loving way. We could share our thoughts and values in life, had fun, talked and drinked together, so in the end we said goodbye as friends. Very recommendable!!!! Just 15 minutes walking from the square Djemaa el Fna and the souks.

Based on our tremendous experience the first time in this riad, we decided to book again for another week during our next vacation. As expected, Abdellatif the host and the riad were fabulous and made our stay extremely wonderful. Abdellatif made us dinner (tangine!) even when our flight into Marrakech arrived after 11 pm at night. He also put us in touch with a trekking agency for us to climb Mt Toubkal, and kept checking back with us before we arrived if our coordination with that trekking agency was going well. I will stay with Abdellatif and his riad 100% on our next visits, and can unequivocally recommend him and his riad. Furthermore, after our return from the trek, we were unable to stay at his place for 2 nights (my mistake). Abdellatif ensured we had another great riad to stay at. I didn't even ask where this place was. I just left it all to Abdellatif. Again, the other riad was spectacular, and even closer to Djemma El Fna.

Our stay at the Riad was fantastic. Abdellatif and the staff were fantastic hosts and went well above and beyond to make us feel at home - they were especially good with all the young children. The Riad looked even better than in the photos and was perfect for our group of 6 adults and 3 young children. The location is in a quiet and safe part of the Medina a 15min walk from the main square.

We ate at the Riad almost every night and the home cooked meals were great - the whole group enjoyed every meal! Abdellatif also organised several very good excursions for us and got a baby sitter at very short notice one evening. Overall it was a wonderful stay for all of us!
