Riad 02 is located right in the heart of the Marrakech medina, or old neighbourhood. This meant I only had to step outside and walk a few paces to find myself in the centre of the hustle & bustle, colour and chaos that is Marrakech - it also meant, the haven that is Riad 02 was only minutes away, when I'd done and seen enough and needed a rest.
Riad 02 staff are local people - friendly, helpful.
The food, prepared by Rashida is authentic and delicious - fresh squeezed orange juice and galettes (buttery pancakes) at breakfast time, moist, tender tajin (earthenware cooking dish with pointed lid) dishes in the evening.
I appreciated the attention to detail of all the furniture and fittings in Riad 02, fabulous lights, bedspreads, wall hangings and other carefully chosen artifacts all around - as an artist, it was a joy to be surrounded by such craftsmanship.
I enjoyed meeting other guests from all over the world there.
It wasn't quite warm enough to use the roof top terrace, during my stay - except to take breakfast there a couple of times - but its a great space to relax and soak up some sun when its warm.
I hope to return in May.
