After an almost endless row of 5-stars reviews about Riad Le Clos de Arts what can one add? Difficult, but I'll give a try: No Keys. There are no keys! You will have to ring the bell evertime you come home to the riad. And that's exactly what it is: A home for the hostess and host, Giorgina and Massimo and their serviceminded staff. And you, specially you, are their welcomed and highly appreciated guests. At least you feel like that when you after a hard day discovering the Medina are welcomed home by the two hosts and with big interest asked about your experiences and if you need anything, from coffee, tea to good advices.The interest for your wellbeing is genuine, not false or superficial. No keys for your room either. We are part of the family and in families we don't lock the doors for each other (except for the night of course). In this way Giorgina & Massimo have created a relaxed feeling-at-home atmosphere which we never have experienced before at any hotel. Besides this I could mention our lovely Amethyste suite, the daily rich breakfast and following other reviews the best meal we had in Marrakech (allthough Masssimo thought that the King's favourite Fondouk where we lunched on his (Massimo, not the King) recommendation is better). The King should certainly try Clos de Arts! Pay extra attention to the advices of your hosts. Specially I had great benefit from Massimo's advice how in a respectful and polite way to reject eager tradesmen.
Unfortunately we can only give Giorgina and Massimo 5 stars. This is what Tripadvisor allows. But be sure, Riad Le Clos de Arts deserves more.
