My girlfriend and I are going to be traveling to Morocco the beginning of October. I was wondering if anyone could recommend any Riads that they have stayed at... I found a link to a web page that lists a few of them.. They all look wonderful
I think my problem is that there are too many choices Any rewiews would be great.
You're right, there are so many nice riads in Marrakech but some are btteer than others in terms of location, comfort, facilities and professional staff. For top riads, I'd recommend La maison arabe which has one of the best restaurants in town and a splendid pool located on a lush farm and a cookery school where you learn to cook Moroccan. Villa des orangers, Sultana, and Riad Kniza are also excellent. For relatively cheaper riads, you can try Dar Adonab, Riad Malika, 1001 or Dar Doukkala
If you need other tips on must-seen in Marrakech, feel free toa sk
I don't remember the name of the Riad I stayed in (but will let you know if I work it out). But my advice, if you are staying in the Medina, book at Riad that will pick you up when you arrive. You will never find those places on your own and taxis can't get to the door of many of them.
For a good selection of English speaking riads in Marrakech email firstname.lastname@example.org
hipmarrakech.com is also useful.
The best? Villa des Orangers is a contender but http://www.riadfarnatchi.com is my favourite. Ask for Lynne...
If you are visiting Fes try http://www.darroumana.com/, or if money doesn't matter, http://www.riadfes.com/
You guys have ideas of pricing in US dollars/Euros?
