Riad al Rimal
Riad al Rimal
Quite expensive for a Riadh with nothing special
We hesitated before taking this Riad, it was well rated on expedia but more expensive than the others, after checking the photos we went for it, we selected a room that costed us 70 USD / night, arriving there it was the smallest room we ever saw, we were proposed to upgrade and pay the equivalent of 15 USD extra / night, and we did, at the end 4 nights costed us around 375 USD incl Tax, 93 USD / night for a riadh !!! same price of all inclusive hotels in the city, price was not the only bad surprise we had, the room did not have a TV and when asking how comes there s no TV in the room, the answer was that: it s like this, we don't have TVs in the rooms :) 4 nights in a riadh without a TV were really boring, and finally and this is the worst, toiletries like shampoo, shower gel, toilet papers were not provided daily and when I talked to the reception saying how come since our arrival we got one bottle of shampoo for two people, the guy was nice and provided us more explaining that it s not on daily basis that they shall provide this, so the conclusion, 93 USD / night for a room without a TV, and a minimum of confort in a city where you can easily get a nice hotel for 50 USD and where going everywhere will cost you 20 dirhams, was not the best choice we could do, one good point about this hotel is the service, staff are very nice and helpful, we were fasting and they managed to prepare our breakfast every day at 3 am, Thanks for that.
Our riad is not more expensive than the others : it is just in the average of prices in Marrakech. We are not a luxury place, just a normal riad. 93 $ for a suite in our riad is a good price compared to the price list. Of course you can always chose cheaper places in the city, there are many of them. We don’t have tv in the rooms. But there are tvs in the lounges and you can watch them as long as your want. But you did not…. And finally, we have never seen a so huge use of toiletries that we had to replenish twice a day….. But we did it without problem although we noticed that you put them all in your suitcase…. As you mention, we have served you breakfast every morning a 3:00 am. And you said to us that we were the only place to accept to do this. Our staff has been very helpful with you during your stay, always nice. We have given you toiletries as never. How can you write now that we are a riad with “nothing special” ?
