Long weekend in Marrakech. Stayed at the lovely Riad Monceau. The staff are all great - very welcoming and helpful - and really helped to make our stay enjoyable. The riad itself is lovely - tasteful, peaceful and calm. It is well situated - very accessible and easy to find just off Zitoun Lakdim, only a hundred metres or so from Jemaa El Fnaa square, and within easy walking distance of the souks and all main attractions. Rooms comfortable and clean. Food very good. They run cooking classes, which we did not have time to try, but other guests told us are good fun. Wife enjoyed the hammam beauty stuff. Would not hesitate to stay there again.
Marrakech itself pretty manic, but in a really enjoyable way. The souk owners (even the pushier ones - and none of them were over the top), restaurant and bar owners, were all friendly and helpful.
