Friendly place close to the museum

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 25, 2015

Friendly small riad right in the middle of the Medina, close to the Marrakesh museum. The rooms have their own bathroom, but it is not separated from the rest of the room. Generally, it is pretty basic with a couple of things (like the shower) worn out and those who expect a tv will be disappointed. However, the place is very clean and gives you definitively a good value for the price. The breakfast which is included in the price consists of coffee, fresh orange juice, one piece of khobz (moroccan flat fluffy bread), one warm Moroccan pastry or pancake and piece of cake. Butter and jam are offered as well.

Riad dar Nael is not easy to find and there are no parking possibilities close to it. That means that giving the address of it to someone or asking to drop you off at the museum is pretty useless. I am not sure, if the tip from the hotel of dropping you off at Al Bassim Post Office and have someone pick you up there works. I haven't found this post office on Google Maps. If you want to try, you can use my description how to get from Djama el Fnaa to the Museum and further to the hotel (see travellogue), but only if you do not have a lot to carry as it takes 20 minutes from Djama el Fnaa.

BTW, Google Maps has it listed as being close to the central coach station (gare routiere) which is not true...

We arrived in Marrakech on our first day in Morocco, and Riad dar Nael was definitely an experience. First adventure of our trip was to even find this place, and dodge all those shady people you meet in this part of town.

Our room, Selma, was on the first floor, and was perfect for socializing with other guests since it didn't have any glass in its windows, nor functioning shutters - just some grills. You didn't even have to leave your room to overhear other guest's conversations! Also, the non-functioning heating (in December!) made us snuggle up and feel cozy. I have to admit, that the room (though smallish and dark as usual for a Riad) has a nice interior, especially the bathroom that was only separated by a chest-high wall. If only the plumbing had worked!

But most impressive of all was certainly the overwhelming stench of cat-***. Beside the not-helpful staff, that wouldn't show us another room or help in any way. Eventually we didn't stay, even though we had made a reservation for three nights and had to pay all of them since the "nice" clerk claimed it was "no problem at all" if we left. I guess he was so embarrassed over us not liking his establishment, that he later refused to even recall our visit and claimed us as a "noshow".
