This beautiful riad made my first trip to Marrakech memorable. Its location is convenient & perfectly situated, within minutes walk from several of Marrakech main tourist attractions & restaurants. The riad’s beautiful architecture and cool courtyard is an oasis from the hustle & bustle of the souks and Place Djeema el Fna, a 10 min walk. In the early evening, guests would gather around the courtyard’s small pool to share & discuss their day’s adventures.
My suite was enormous and was beautifully decorated with a Moroccan motif. Exquisite blankets and pillows accented the sitting room and bedroom. Make sure to visit the rooftop to catch a view of the storks nesting on the walls of Palais El Badi.
The Italian owner, GPaolo, is a wealth of information and made sure you experience the best Marrakech has to offer. I was traveling alone and every morning during breakfast, I would ask his recommendation on how I should plan my day. Mohammed and the other staff members were most welcoming & hospitable and made sure that your stay was memorable.
