We stayed at the Riad Monika for 4 nights at the beginning of March and can highly recommend it as the perfect place to stay in Marrakech.
We were met at the airport by a man with a Riad Monika sign after I contacted the owner for a transfer. The trip to the Riad was easy and stress-free. Zoohair (apologies if I've spelt that wrong) was very welcoming, sat down with us when we arrived to talk about the Souks, the local area and provided us with a very refreshing drink of mint tea. He was constantly helpful throughout our stay recommending places to eat, advising us on the prices for taxi rides (be prepared to haggle) and generally answering any of our varied questions.
The Riad is simply beautiful. Four houses were bought and combined to make the Riad by a French Architect and he's done a wonderful job of restoring them. It's a tranquil oasis amidst the hectic nature of the Souks. The pool is gorgeous, there's fountains and exquisite Moroccan tiles, a library and a sumptuous roof terrace perfect for lounging in the sun.
Breakfast was included and served on the roof terrace. Delicious coffee and pastries, eggs, pancakes and honey, all manner of tasty breads and it was a great start to the day.
The staff helped us with our trips and all transactions were easy. The Riad is close enough to the Souks to walk (5/10 minutes) to the main square (10/15) minutes and all the places you'd like to visit whilst feeling safe and clean.
We had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend this Riad to anyone visiting Marrakech.
