we have just got back from a three night stay and in the short time there was made very welcome by all of the staff, who drew us little maps and walked us to local attractions, admitted finding your way back in the dark is...More
booked here to stay with my mum for a week on the 28th of march, had read reviews before and expected a quite basic, small riad. we arrived about 8 o'clock and the minibus dropped us about 5 minutes away as the streets were too...More
Stayed 5 nights in March 2012. Nice welcome, homely stay, very friendly and pleasant service and always happy to advise and help beyond expectations. Rooms were better than what we were expecting for a Riad - and were pleasantly surprised. Good location, right in the...More
After reading other reviews thought this raid would be ok and expected fairly basic. Yes we had wonderful welcome with the mint tea, and offered choice of rooms. The rooms were just ok, very dark and cold, had to keep heater on through the night...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
