    good quality for money near Jemaa el Fnaa

    by

    A nice clean and very well kept riad so conveniently located on a crowded street just 100m from Jemaa el Fnaa. Was a big surprise for us to discover that it was only 400 (around 40 Euro) dirhams for a standard double room, after all lousy hotels for 180-350 dirhams with dirty linen and no hot water that we checked before we found it! So, for this moderate amount of money you get:
    - moroccan style accomodation with beautiful inner yard, decorated with blue zellij, a fountain and plants
    - very small and a bit dark rooms, but very clean and decorated in local style. Nice looking bathrooms, HOT SHOWER! Rooms are cleaned every day, and every day we found our beds and things in perfect order. And every morning we saw the army of maids carefully cleaning every cm of riad, and i think it was the most clean place where we stayed in Morocco!
    - delicious breakfasts (included in room price) on open terrase on the top floor of riad, offering omeletts, pancakes, sandwiches, youghurt, fresh orange juice, a variety of delicious jams, dates and - beleive it or not! - black Lipton tea!
    - in the room there was a plate with fresh apples and oranges, refilled every day (included in the room price)
    - on the ground floor there is a hammam and massage, we didn't try it and I don't remember the rates, but they were not expensive
    - personnel is calm and friendly, just like in all other hotels and i would say like all Moroccans in general!

    Directions: Medina, just 100m from Jemaa el Fnaa

    The Riad Omar Hotel is right in the centre of Marrakesh with access off a pedestrian mall. A small hotel with only 24 rooms (including 4 suites) but charmingly decorated in the Moroccan style. All rooms have airconditioning, some come with a shower and some with a bath tub. The reception is open 24 hours and have a safety deposit box available and there is internet available for guests. The hotels restaurant offers breakfast, lunch and dinner either inside or on the terrace. They even have a traditional Hammam (steam bath) available.

    Riad Omar

    by

    Slightly more expensive than the Riad Maria and not quite as nice either, this riad is found right on the main street of Rue de Bab Agnaou. It's still very nice though, although the room was a bit cramped (or 'cosy' depending on your preference!) and the bathroom a bit small and basic. Lovely shared balcony view of the street below though, and it was still very comfortable and if you can afford that bit extra a much better bet than the Hotel Ali price range. All in all a very nice place, just didn't quite live up to the standards of the Maria.

    Directions: Walk down Rue de Bab Agnaou from Djemaa el-Fna and it's about halfway down on your right hand side.

Dar Nejjarine Carpets

by keeweechic about Carpets

Dar Nejjarine Carpets was near the Riad Omar Hotel. The building is several stories and on the lower floor there is a room for viewing carpets. You are offered the traditional mint tea or soft drink before the presentation begins. Someone will explain to you the different textures and patterns which you will find Morocco, then staff will magically appear to toss around in front of you all sizes, colours and patterns of rugs in the hope to tempt you.

A Banquet for two....

by Firestar24 about Riad Omar

We had barely had time to drop off our bags at Riad Hamza when Ahmed suggested we might be hungry. In fact, I was ravenous and so we decided to accept Ahmed's offer of finding us a place to dine for the evening, particularly in light of his success at finding us a beautiful place to stay.

We walked back onto the main street and followed Ahmed's nimble silhouette to Riad Omar. The entrance and halls were similar to our accommodation's but on a larger scale. We were surprised to be shown to the terrace despite the pouring rain, but a marquee style canopy protected a luxuriously upholstered dining area from the elements. The terrace was crowded with French and Moroccan diners and we chose a corner couch with a discreet view of the room. There was no music but the constant cheery chatter gave the restaurant a lively atmosphere.

Looking at the menu, Ahmed helpfully selected two meals that we should try. I noticed they came in boxes with five lines each seeming to end in a separate dish - a five course meal...EACH??? Ahmed assured us the portions were small and his suggestion would be perfect for us. We must have looked hungry!

I know this sounds daft, but I must mention the toilets! They have the dearest little open air entrance with wash basin leading onto cubicles with swing-shutter doors that lock with huge iron bolts!

Due to the lack of alcohol at Riad Omar, Jonathan had started to sober up fast and it was lucky that several feline visitors kept his mind off his hangover. Thus we began the longest meal of our lives! The five course set menus cost 250 dirhams each and could feed an army! Our evening commenced with cold salad dishes and bread. Spiced carrots, olives and pasta all featured and also very sweet honeyed dates which I found peculiar at the beginning of a meal. The next course was tagines of lamb and chicken which were beautifully prepared and presented. The lamb tagine was cooked with chicken livers which are a favourite of mine and Jonathan's.

Couscous was served next with many different root vegetables to compliment it. I found this quite bland but satisfying after the spicy tagines. A huge basket a fruit was brought to the table once the couscous was cleared. At this point we were beginning to feel uncomfortably full and then melon was soothing and refreshing. A word to the wise - don't fill up on that bread in the first course or you will explode!

When the mint tea was finally served we couldn't even look at the sweet pastries that accompanied it!
