I was a with a friend just a couple of days ago in the riad Amira. We stayed for 4 days and i could not imagine a better place to stay.
Martin, a really lovely french lady is the owner of the riad. She welcomed us with some maroccan backery and fresh mint tea.
After filling out some papers, she gave us a card from the medina of marrakesch and gave us some useful tips(bars/restaurants)
We just managed to try some of them, but we really liked them- especially the cosy bar.
We stayed in the room "simbad"- the room was really cute decorated with a lot of attention on little details. Here you realize its owned by a french=)
Furthermore our huge double bed was really comfy and the room has it own bathroom.
In the bathroom you can find some showergel, body lotion and shampoo. Aswell a safe is provided to but in your personal stuff and some cold water. And the room was clean.
During the hot afternoons we took a refreshment in the pool. The pool is really cold, but considering the temperatures thats what you really need.
Afterwards we took a sunbath at the rooftop. There are some sunbeds & sunloungers.
Every morning a lovely breakfast is provided. It contains different sorts of bread, jam, honey, butter, fruitsalad, egg, yoghurt, tee&coffee& milk.
You can enjoy your breakfast at the rooftop or in the courtyard. The breakfast was absolutely fresh. Maybe it could change a bit if you stay there longer. But for 4 days it was perfect.
The riad is in the area Kashbah, really close to the saadian tombs & kasbahe mosquee. Maybe 5 min by walk. Aswell too the the place jemaa el fna its just 15 min by walk. The way was quiete secure during the day and night.
Furthermore if you needed a taxi or anything else Martin was always willing to help you.
The only little minus was that the wifi was not everywhere perfect. In the room it was perfect. But in the courtyard or the roof it did not connected. But since we have been on holidays its not too bad=)
i can really recomment this riad to anyone. And if i will be again in Marrakesch, i already know where to stay.
Thanks Martin for the loevly stay
kind regards Franzi=)
