Great Medina experience in Riad
Excellent stay at the Riad. Organized transport from the airport to the Bakery near the Riad, (which became a daily favorite) where we were met by the ever efficient and kind Hassan, who provided guide service (needed) to the Riad.
Once the doors open to the Riad from the path, the true beauty is revealed .. a spacious accommodation with the beautiful atrium, providing both light and visual beauty in the plants.
Communication and money matters were efficient and clear in the rental process, with advice on money changing, shopping for food and other goods supplied in the welcome communication.
At the Riad, pictures are accurate, WiFi is consistent, all appliances (including the clothes washer .. drying rack is supplied as well) and plumbing work as intended, kitchen is well supplied, plenty of hot water. Electrical service has been updated, with plenty of outlets.
The Riad is located in the heart of the Medina, so walking to places of interest is done most efficiently with the GPS on your phone. And there are so many places within and without the walls of the Medina to explore. Tagine and couscous meal at a local restaurant just steps from the bakery was tasty, courteously served, with take away provided for large portions served.
Hassan not only met us at the bakery to act as guide to the Riad, but also assisted us in arranging our day adventure to the lesser Atlas mountains, as well as transport to the train station to continue our journey.
The roof garden was most welcome .. with the plants, both outside and within the atrium.
Given the opportunity, no doubt we would seek this accommodation again.
Great location, lovely riad
This riad is just as you can see in the photos; highly recommended. The owner kindly booked us a taxi to and from the airport at our request which worked brilliantly. Hassan met us outside the local boulangerie and walked us through the alleys to the actual address. This is quite easy to find once you have been shown once and is adequately lit at night too ( no need for the torch I'd taken!). Set in the heart of the medina, the riad was well placed for us to explore the old town on foot and yet be accessible to the new town too. The local boulangerie was lovely as was the man who sold olives just at the entrance of the alleyway.
We got extensively lost as we walked around the souks but experienced no hassle (much more of this in Jamaa El Fna square but it still has to be visited both night and day). We also enjoyed a day trip out to the Atlas mountains going to Dar Tassa for lunch and a walk. We visited the Majorelle Gardens although this is full of tourists and quite expensive by Marrakesh standards. We much more enjoyed the Saadian tombs (difficult to find so keep your eyes peeled as tourist sights are not well signposted) and Ben Youssef Medersa. After too much walking we also took our kids on a tourist bus and hopped on and off for the day which was a good way to travel around the new town.
We ate in smaller restaurants rather than those recommended by guide books. Whilst the menus are not extensive anywhere (tagines every day) the food was good and cheap.
What a wonderful riad in the heart of the medina. Easy walking distance to all attractions in the medina.
It was a great place to base yourself out of to visit the High Atlas Mountains and surrounding area.
Very clean and comfortable, wouldn't hesitate to stay in this lovely property again.
Lovely quiet riad close to the tourist attractions
This property is a true riad which has been modernised. Located in a quiet area but within easy walking distance of all of the major tourist attractions. The roof top terrace was a great place to sit, sunbathe and eat and even had a friendly cat. The only downside to us was the lack of wifi. Just down the road is CaféArabe which is good for meals or just a drink, the terrace there has sprays of mist to keep you cool. Even nearer is Palais Donab where you can dine next to the swimming pool in opulent surroundings. Both of these charge European prices. Also worth considering is Café Reda near the Jardin Majorene which was good for kebab at nearer to local prices and had free wifi.
The collection to and from the airport by the friendly Hassan was very smooth and he also took us to a supermarket on the way to the riad.
Merci pour votre témoignage sur votre séjour passé dans notre location. Le WiFi sera installé courant 2014. Cordialement. V. Truffaut

By crossing the antiques district you will reach the Jemaa el Fna square within 10-15 minutes. The secure and calm environment of the Riad will enable you to enjoy visiting and resting in the heart of an authentic Marrakesh.
