It is decorated in a traditional style but with a hint of contemporary. It has air-condition and heating. The bed has a firm mattress of a very good quality, which will be a great asset as you will need some rest after wondering in the street of Marrakech during the day!
Ory is very nice and very helpful. She helped us to amend the booking several times. She also helped with the airport transfer. The apartment is clean and comfortable, located in a residential market, where you can buy fruit and food with a normal price (not for tourist). The location is convenient in old city. With 20 minutes walking you can cover all sightseeing easily, except the garden. However, nobody in the apartment is English speaking. This is not convenient. Ory said she is abroad thus this happened. There is no price listed anywhere in the apartment and I was invoiced 30 DH for less than 2 minutes telephone. Since nobody explained to me in advance I was surprised and asked Ory. She wiped off the 30 DH afterwards as a compensation of no-English-Speaking. Thanks.
My boyfriend and I were here for two nights at the end of Feb. Great location and the hospitality was great. Tea on arrival with sweets was a nice touch after a long journey. We also thought the bedroom was really comfy and bathroom was gorgeous. Jamila was extremely helpful despite the language difference (her
English was much better than my limited French). I'd recommend this Riad for your city break.
Thanks for spending some time to write about your experience at the riad. I am very happy you liked staying in the room Touriya , which is the room I normally use when I am at the riad.
I am also very pleased that in spite the language issue you and Jamila managed to communicate and she was as always very helpful. I will report back to her your kindly praise.

About the Host, Ory
Ho iniziato l'avventura marocchina nel 2006 dopo un inverno particolarmente rigido in Inghilterra,(dove vivo quando non sono a Roma, ed ora a Marrakech o in viaggio), che mi aveva provocato un raffreddore/inflluenza dopo l'altra, Decisi di partire per un posto caldo, anche con l'idea di esplorare un possibile investimento immobiliare. Dopo 4 giorni passati a Marrakech ero guarita e mi ero anche innamorata della citta'! L'idea di acquistare un riad a Marrakech si coniugava benissimo con quella di avere un'attivita; che mi portasse via dal museo dove lavoravo part-time per raggiungere un posto caldo per almeno 3 o 4 giorni al mese giustificando tale assenze con un progetto di lavoro. Ho cosi' iniziato a cercare il posto giusto e il riad giusto (per il mio budget) , ci sono voluti quasi due anni e poi sono iniziati i lavori ( anche quelli da supervisionare tutti i mesi, ben felice di scappare da Londra!) anche i lavori sono durati parecchio e poi c'e' stata la piacevole seppur faticosa impresa di arredarlo facendo fare dagli artigiani locali ogni pezzo seguendo i miei disegni e i loro consigli. Cosi' nasce Riad (website hidden) continuo a viaggiare, dal Giappone al Nepal, al Buthan e anche mete piu' vicine ma la magia di Marrakech ha ancora il suo effetto e ci torno piu' spesso possibile.
