Marrakech bed and breakfast description

Beautifully restored Medina riad owned by a London-based interior designer. The riad was renovated using local craftsman and traditional building materials.

The riad is located within walking distance to all the major tourist attractions including the Baadi and Bahia Palaces, the Koranic School, the Jamal Fnaa and the many souks of the Medina. There is a large selection of excellent restaurants, both Moroccan and European, within a short stroll.

The riad is built around a courtyard that is open to the skies of Morocco. On the ground floor there is a b'hou (open seating area off the courtyard), a double bedroom with hammam style en-suite, a guest WC and kitchen. Located off the balcony on the first floor is the master bedroom with hammam style en-suite, the salon with open fire, TV, DVD and a single bedroom with access to the roof terrace. On the terrace is a tented seating area, a dining table for eight people and two sun loungers.

We have an English and French speaking house manager, Mohammed, who will organise for you to be greeted at the airport and transferred to the riad. During your stay our wonderful housekeeper, Rachida, can provide meals on request. Mohammed can also organise taxis for excursions and tours. Mohammed is also a qualified Berber trekking guide and can organise trips for all levels including treks with children.
