The space

Riad Essaadaka is tucked away in a quiet residential neighbourhood but still minutes away from the life of the souks, the vibrant Jema El Fna square and important monuments and attractions.
The Riad has three floors plus the terrace. The ground floor has a small lounge area around the courtyard and one double bedroom with private bathroom as well as a public WC. The middle floors has the remaining three bedrooms (only one without private bathroom) a storage room and one public WC. The third floor is where you will find the kitchen, living room and one public complete bathroom for usage of the guests. The terrace disposes of tables and chairs for breakfast and other meals, a lounge shaded area and chaises-longue for sunbathing. In winter, the central opening (typical feature of Moroccan Riads) is covered to protect from rain and cold.
The decoration is a concentrate of different Moroccan crafts and cultural activities, mixing colours, techniques and materials. Guests should expect clean, comfortable, simple accommodation and a quiet environment. Breakfast is available at 3euros per person and is served where the guest desires.
At the entrance of the neighbourhood there are groceries shops for immediate needs. At the spice’s square nearby there are several small cafés and restaurants and more dining options are available at the Jema El Fna square which is within 10min walking distance. The neighbourhood is a good starting point to explore the souks, visit the Madrasa Ben Youssef, Museum of Marrakech, Qoubba Almoravid and Photography Museum. Other attractions like Museum Dar Si Said, Bahia Palace and Badii Palace are also within walking distance.
To move around Marrakech, the Jema el Fna Square is the best place to get a taxi or take a city bus as well as to park your car (several car parking facilities nearby).
We are able to organize day excursions to nearby places like the Ourika Valley, Ouzoud waterfalls and Essaouira and also longer ones to the Desert (Zagora or Merzouga).

Das Riad hat eine Super-Lage mitten in den Souks. Das Badezimmer ist nicht so super belüftet und riecht ein bisschen. Die Leute sind sehr nett, aber Nachts ist manchmal Lärm im Haus. Die Dachterrasse ist einsame Spitze, könnte aber noch besser beleuchtet sein für gemütliche Aben…

Es general la estancia en el riat fue muy agradable. La ubicación es buena,cerca de la plaza de las especies,aunque cuesta muchisimo encontrar el riat exacto entre las callejuelas. A mejorar: cuando estuvimos nosotros el Wifi no funcionaba. Segun nos comentó no era algo habitual…
