I booked and paid in full through hotels.com and when i got here with my child, it was closed down. After pounding on the door for ages, a man came out and just said, sorry we're closed for 2 months. I showed him my confirmation...More
My room was big enough with 3 beds but dangerous to health and safety as wires from the walls are out and damaged, the ceiling in the bathroom is full with damp and rain water drops onto the toilet lid. The tiles on the floor...More
We booked Riad Amssaffah online, receptionist (who was apparently just helping out that night for his friend) wanted 10EUR more than online (for city taxes), didnt feel ok to pay, so left that for morning. Got room without functional A/C, but warm shower working. Quiet...More
I had a confirmation for my booking at this accommodation including notification of late night arrival. When I got there I was told the manager made a mistake and left the bookings open. They were full. It was midnight in the maze of the medina...More
We visited Marrakech last year so had a rough idea what to expect. This was no-where near as nice as the Rhiad we stopped in last year, which was absolutely brilliant. This was run-down and filthy.
The first thing we were asked for were Taxes...More

It's right in the middle of lots of little alleys and I defy anyone to try to find it straight away. The best thing to do is to get a cab from the airport. When you walk out of the airport, cross the road and walk through to the end of the car park (you'll be approached by lots of cab drivers on the way just tell them you have a cab already). At the end of the car park there'll be lots of cab drivers, they'll approach you and tell them you want to go to Riad Amassafah. They'll tell you 200 D but offer them 60. They'll laugh, but keep walking until you get them to agree 80 - 100. Stand you ground - it'll be a bit unnerving, but that's part of the experience and we got one for 80. They guy said he'd drop us 100m away, but we chatted to him in French during our journey and he drove us straight there. We gave him 100 D in the end. I read somewhere that there is a little fountain down the road from the rid, but it's more a water tap in the street. Stand with that on your right, look up the road and go through the first arch you see. The riad is the door on your right. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did - it is real Mrrakech.
BTW: there is a bureau d'exchange on the walk to the main square from the riad and it's commission-free. Last month, I got nearly 14 D for £1, which was about 4D more that I got at Gatwick airport. Eliza will help you find it. All the best, Joanna
