We chose a riad as it was a first for us and we went with an open mind. It is a bit like living with friends for a few days as the house has a central atrium and you can hear what goes on around you. So beware if you plan a night of passion! The room was great and had it own shower room. Breakfast was freshly prepared every morning and was a simple affair of fresh home made yoghurt, warm crepes and bread with an assortment of jams. The coffee was hot and fresh which is important when you need it to start your day. It is a good 15 mins walk to town once you have your map and know where you are going. It felt a very safe neighbourhood and we never had any trouble even coming back late at night. On arrival we were given a map and an explanation of where we were and a card just in case we got a taxi back. Thierry was very helpful in explaining how to get to places and suggestions on what to do next. There was always the offer of mint tea and I think this was the best made in all of Marrakesh, Just a pity we did not have time to try the food he offers as I think it would have been excellent too. He organised the collection to/from the airport and this went without a hitch. When we came back at night we managed to have a couple of beers in the riad which was easier than finding expensive restaurants selling alcohol near the square. It is a fun environment to stay but if you are looking for somewhere with room service etc then go to one of the mainstream hotels. However, You will miss out on the friendly helpful and welcoming service that Thierry and his team provide.
