Like many cities Marrakech is densely populated. There are plenty of sites to see. My wife and I stayed a week in late March, weather was hot and sometimes wet. The street scene is somewhat like an unending barbeque, just outside the Riad and moreso in the 'big square'. The small business people do try to sell their wares to you, but do not persist too much. The lasting memories will be the frantic life of the local people, both in the pursuit of their businesses and in their social needs. The 'herds' of mopeds, bycicles and people, punctuated with taxis. The street maintenance of taxis and other vehicles, and the street sellers of fruit and skewered meats etc., that leave no clear boundary between road and pedestrian traffic. Then the comparitive calm of Riad Jonan. It is a true oasis in the midst of an apparently chaotic world. The staff are very pleasant, only too willing to help. The Riad itself is tranquil, with rooms that are comfortable and air conditioned. Then there is the roof terrace. A place to relax and take some sun, perhaps with a drink that the staff will willingly run up to you. We ate in the Riad three times in the week and were always very satisfied. We also checked out two of the restaurants recommended by Hassan and went back to each a second time (Chegrouni about 150 MAD for 2 people and the Marrackchi about 700 MAD for 2 with wine).
All in all a very memorable and satifying stay.
Many thanks to Hassan and all the staff.
