Breakfast was nice on the rooftop and included omelette which was a nice change compared to other riads. The staff was very nice and pleasant. It was a 3 minute walk to bab Marrakech, 5 minute walk to supratour bus station, and... More

Why did you stay longer than planned if it was so horrible ? Maybe simply because ALL TOWN smelled bad !!!! Once per year, each family sacrifice a sheep and burn trash in the streets, so yes it smells bad ! Why do you blame me ? Travelling during Aïd El Kebir was not a good idea, maybe next time... More
