our 4 night stay at riad ariha was amazing. for the price it was an amazing piece of luxury at a low price for the backpacking type. After camping across europe we (young couple) wanted to spend the few extra bucks in morocco for some luxury and riad ariha provided it excellently.
everything was perfect. the room was bright, very clean, with air conditioning which was useful considering it was close to 50 degrees C outside each day and the plunge pool really let you cool down after walking the medina all day.
it's set in a neighbourhood where real moroccans live but a short walk into the heart of the medina and a 20 min walk or 5 min cab to the main square.
The staff were excellent. The owners were amazingly helpful as were the staff who always had a smile on their faces and nothing was ever too much fun.
i think the riad was the best thing about our stay in marrakesh.
Also there is a purfume store just up the road, be sure to check it out the man does the best home made imitations of over 150 name purfumes and they smell exactly the same and cost about 3 bucks.
if your going to marrakesh Riad Ariah is a great place to stay, the owners are opening another riad soon too so if you can't get in here try that one, i bet it will be just as good.
