Gorgeous riad with a traditional authentic feel, a perfect santuary to chill out relax from the hustle and bustle of the hectic medina. We stayed 4 nights in the amber room which is lovely and cool with the most beautiful double 4 poster bed (very romantic) and antique claw footed bath also with a shower. Staff were amazingly helpful especially the manager Rachid who went out of his way to ensure we had a fantastic stay, advising us on everything from where to go for the best quality handbags to organising our trip to the Atlas mountains. I recommend you eat in the riad at least once , we had the most delicious fish tagine cooked by Rachida, so full of spice and flavour was by far the best meal of the holiday! This was the third time we had stayed in Marrakech and by far the most enjoyable will definitely be coming back to stay in Riad Merstane next year.
