The riad was quite far from the entrance and we had to drag our bags over 5 minutes through the Medina to get to the riad. There also was a horrible stench right outside the riad. They were extremely nice once we made it inside the venture to get there just was not pleasant. The bathroom also did not have a door which was gross. Lastly their recommended transportation to and from the airport was overpriced and he was extremely rude.

We had a wonderful stay in Marrakech at Riad Assala. The staff were all really friendly and extremely helpful. When we arrived from the airport in the transport they had arranged for us Ahmed met us at our taxi and took our cases through the narrow streets to the Riad where we were greeted by Fatima and Mustafa and offered mint tea as we settled in. They were also very accomodating to my wife's need of a gluten free diet and provided us with delicious food (breakfast every day and some dinners). The location in the heart of the medina was great being within walking distance of most of the main tourist attractions. When we left they once again organised our transport to the airport and Ahmed helped take our cases to the pick up point ensuring that we and our luggage were safely aboard. We would heartily recommend Riad Assala to anyone visiting Marrakech.

Authentic Riad in very central location, albeit accessed by a small (dark) alley. Staff were brilliant for friendliness and helpfulness.
