I liked the staff.Very kind & helpful.
The area is not for tourists. Dangerous and far from the center
The staff was amazing! They were extremely kind, helpful and caring, gave us a lot of information about the city, what to avoid and how to take care of ourselves. The food they made for us was delicious and it felt like home. We would recommend it to everyone looking for an authentic experience!
The riad is located on the opposite side of the medina from Jemaa el Fnaa (known as 'Le Place'). It's an easy 15-20 minute walk once you know the route. It's a quiet area which is a very welcome break from the hustle and bustle. Our twin room was small and simple but charming. The breakfast was simple but tasty with fresh bread and sometimes some kind of fried bread/pancake all served with honey, jam and butter, mint tea and fresh orange juice. We were also greeted with mint tea and biscuits when we arrived. We arrived around half an hour ahead of the time we said but were greeted with a very warm welcome and our room was ready.
The only downsides were that our room was located next to the kitchen and by the stairs leading down from the entrance to the riad so we did hear when any guests or family came in during the night. The room and bathroom were also quite small and basic, so I would say this accommodation may be better suited to travellers using only hand luggage and staying for a few days maximum. We were in Morocco for over a week so had large bags/suitcases.
The staff is amazing. They guide and help with everything they can. I cannot stress enough how helpful, kind and friendly they are. The riad is very clean. The food is good. Very good value for money.
The only average thing is the location due to the surrounding area. However, you can get to the main souks within 25 minutes walking.
That we were within walking distance of everything we wanted
With a stay at Riad Ailen in Marrakech (Medina), you'll be within a 5-minute drive of Marrakesh Museum and Agdal Gardens. Featured amenities include dry cleaning/laundry services, a 24-hour front desk, and multilingual staff. A roundtrip airport shuttle is available for a surcharge.
