We found Noir d'Ivoire to be everything that fellow Trip Advisers say about it. So instead of repeating the rave reviews (which are fully justified) I will just add three tips. 1. Wear good serviceable shoes - the Riad is right in the middle of the old town (medina). The nearest taxi location is 5 minutes walk and the main square (Djemaa el Fna) is a good 20-25 minutes walk. Taxis are next to useless within the medina so walking is your main option.
2. Try to keep a stock of 20Dhm (about £1.50/€2/$2.40) notes - handy for tips and taxis (outside the medina).
3. Take the open top bus tour (Dhm130) from the Koutoubia Mosque stop near the main square to get an overview of Marrakech and particularly the very pleasant new town area.
Lastly we visited for 5 days and, with a day trip into the Atlas Mountains (arranged, as ever, by the hospitable Damion and Jill) we found this was just about right to see all of Marrakesh and surrounds.
Oh, and don't stop anywhere else - this is the best.More
