I am a little late in placing this review but looking at the recent comments it looks as though things are just as good, so it's nice to know the Riad is consistent in terms of it's excellent accommodation & service.
This is a wonderful retreat just Minutes away from the hustle & bustle of the Madina.
The Riad is tastefully decorated and furnished to give you a true feeling of Moroccan Hospitality.
We ate in the Riad on a couple of a nights and enjoyed the piece and quiet having been out and about in the heat all day.The breakfast was traditional and tasty and we ate in the Restaurant which had prepared the night time food for the Riad on the next two nights. It was excellent , great ambiance with excellent food and wine.
The room itself was very atmospheric furnished with Moroccan style dark furniture and fabrics. The whole effect i would say is shabby chic which is perfect for this type of building.
I would definitely recommend a Riad when staying in Marrakech , although you may not have all the mod cons,room service, swimming pool etc i think it more than makes up in an experience you will never forget.
Thank you .
