This is a Trusted Review. Why?
We were thrilled with the location of the riad as it is a short walk away from the main square (Jamaa El Fna about 10 min's) as well as a short stroll around the corner from the souks. The building is totally unassuming, located down a dimly lit passageway right opposite the Bab Dukkala mosque (bring ear plugs if you are a light sleeper!), and, as the doors open, is an absolute surprise with its beautifully tranquil decor, indoor splash pool in the centre of the courtyard and traditionally decorated rooms on three floors. Each room is totally unique, I would highly recommend asking for the water room or the earth room, as they are the best from what I saw. We requested the water room but sadly ended up in the heart room, which apart from the bed was perfectly nice, but nothing like the water room! In the heart room we found the bed to be very uncomfortable for two people, like sleeping in a canoe. Probably fine for one person, but quite unbearable for two adults! The pillows were also the worst pillows you will ever sleep on. We were a group of 5 and everyone had the same problem. I suggest either bringing your own if you can manage it or do as we did and slide a folded towel inside the pillowslip to ease out the lumpy balls of cotton wool for a comfier sleep! Make sure when you book you clearly state that you want to be in this riad. We had a 6th person joining us in our third day and he was placed in another riad on the opposite side of the street which was dreadful. We were quite upset as this had not been mentioned when booking the accommodation. His room was like someone's spare room in an apartment. No character, empty, isolated, and no toilet paper. A bit like an afterthought...He also paid more than we did so just double check your booking with the riad directly before arrival. As long as you are in the riad advertised then you are due a wonderful stay! They have a wonderful roof terrace, which is a great place to eat your breakfast and dinner each day (weather permitting, thunder storms are common in the evening after a hot day) or soak up a bit of sun, away from the busy souks and square. The service was great despite our A level French/mime ability (no one speaks English)! All in all an excellent meal on our first night which I highly recommend (the best meal we had during our stay in Marrakech), friendly staff with peppermint tea in hand to welcome us on our first day and a clean bedroom with fresh towels to return to after a day walking the city. What more could you ask for!
