I stayed a week in the Riad des Clos des Arts with a friend in July 2010. Whatever good has been said about the Riad in previous reviews is more than correct. The Riad is beautiful, well kept, very clean, very quiet, its location is excellent and it's run by an excellent manager/owner, supported by very helpful and friendly staff, all of whom speak either French or English. I had to change rooms in the middle of my stay, but this was made very easy by all staff. The first room I stayed in was a suite, the second one just a normal room. If you have the choice, and you can afford it, go for one of the suites. They are very comfortable and spacious. The normal rooms are comfortable too, just less spacious. Giorgina, the owner, goes out of her way to make you comfortable and help you out in whichever way she can. She gave us great shopping tips (Warda la Mouche was a treat), made us salads at short notice, arranged transport when we needed it, made restaurant suggestions and bookings (Giorgina, La Trattoria was great indeed!), etc. The fruit in the room, the little rose, the goodbye present, the excellent Morrocon tea were the much appreciated "finishing touches". Anyone who has been making comments on tripadvisor on for example the noise of passing motocycles at night, is simply making this up as the location of the Riad does not allow this. Airconditioning was working very well, and there is wireless internet connection through the Riad. The only very minor suggestion for Giorgina would be to let people first go their rooms and refresh before starting the explanations about Marrakesh. If you're going to Marrakesh, have no doubts, just hope the Riad des Clos des Arts has rooms available!
