Very nice Riad experience in Marrakech!
I wanted to have the experience of staying in a Riad in the middle of Marrakech. This fit the bill! As with any old city, the taxi could not drop us off directly in front of the Riad so someone from the Riad picked us up from the closest parking lot. The hotel was well-kept, considering how old it was. It gives you an idea of how people lived in this The breakfasts and dinners they served were very tasty, freshly made too. The staff was super-super helpful, for which I was very thankful. One of my ID cards fell from my luggage, they found it and immediately sent it to the next hotel where we were staying. I would highly recommend.
