Maybe I should start by giving you some context about my visit to this riad . ( in one sentence and as short as possible )
It was our first visit to Morocco and the first of my wife in Arab countries arrived to Marrakech around 2:30 am due to a delay in flight .
We had a taxi driver waiting for us, as agreed with the staff of the riad. (hurray for us)
It was a pleasant surprise to see him there, since we were 2 hours late and we had no opportunity to tell anyone about our delay. (We assume that we would have to get a taxi in Marrakech, dealing with the possible problems like finding one taxi driver that would know the way till our riad, negotiate the price for the ride, etc)
The taxi driver immediately took our luggage and led us to the riad , having left us in a square in the middle of the medina and where there was just a man standing there.
We realized it was not exactly a situation where we were in security. The man, with a somewhat understandable English, greeted us and asked us to follow him along, grabbing our luggage.
We followed him through the streets and alleys until we turn left for "into a tunnel", being unnoticeable at the time that in the end of it there was the entrance off the riad. (and here ends the "least good part" of the experience of this riad)
As we entered, we were escorted to our room and were asked if we wanted tea or coffee for breakfast , we opted for both since we like both.
We entered the room and we were completely amazed . The entrance of the room consisted of a small room where we could sit and drink a tea while we read a book, some walls had shelfs with books and magazines .
On the left in this small room, there was the room with a bed big enough to not bother your +1 as you move during your sleep .
The bathroom was behind a wall at the headboard, that entails some possible disadvantages.
As far as dimensions of the room go, i would say it had approximately 10 meters in depth and 5 wide.
Talking about the bathroom it had a huge marble stone tub great for a bubble bath after a full day of sightseeing .
As for breakfast, freshly squeezed orange juice; spectacular pancakes with strawberry jam and peach jam and some French pastries cakes (as good or better than the best French pastries).
The tips from the manager, were wonderful "tool" to help us out in planning our day visit to the city .
The only bad thing in this riad, was that we only stayed two days.
Hope that you guys can enjoy this as much as us.
