Description of the Riad Moucharabieh Hotel
The hotel was originally constructed in the 1930s and discerningly and artistically restored in 1997 by Didier Vicaire with particular attention to Moroccan architecture and furnishings. Made up of two adjoining and interconnecting Riads, the original Delacroix wing and the newly completed Matisse wing each offer four air-conditioned rooms, and the Delacroix wing also features a suite. The reception, lounge areas and dining rooms surround the central courtyards, which have been restored in traditional \"\"zelige\"\" (mosaic) and \"\"tadlakt\"\" (plasterwork), carved wood and other Arabesque materials. Further facilities on offer here include a bar, a conference room, a games room, a TV room and a restaurant. Guests may also make use of the room service, and those arriving by car may take advantage of the car park.

    "I was completely unsure about what to expect from the riad as it hadn't been recommended to me, I just chose it from your website as it seemed to have what we needed and to be honest I was a bit panicky about not finding anywhere as I had already booked the flights! It was completely beyond my expectations; spotlessly clean with excellent bathroom facilities and heating ( Marrakech can get very cold in December!). My friend whom I travelled with particularly enjoyed the free wine, and my favourite part of the holiday was when men came from the lovely local restaurants to lead us through the medina with lanterns dressed in full traditional outfits - all arranged by Jamal and Majiit at the riad. Majiit and I had fun teaching each other Arabic and English, and they made sure we had plenty of English tea for breakfast. It was too cold to use the pools, but we would go back in the Spring or Autumn to make full use of the beautiful terrace. I cannot recommend this riad highly enough. "

    "Overall we were there for 4 nights and it was really good mainly because it was completely different to Europe. You need to be prepared to barter with the Souk (Market) traders, you also need to be very wary about who is talking to you and where they are taking you. Number of times we got lost in the Medina and got accosted by the locals trying to extort money out of us. Its all born out of the poverty but we came back feeling a bit broke because we got lost so much ... great for an experience but next time I'll be wiser. Even the kids of about 2 are trying to extort money from you ... its intelligent psychological begging and they seem to be very good at it. I think they see any white european looking person as super rich so they try to milk you. Some tips to help out that worked were to where sunglasses so the locals can't see the fear in your eyes. Keep the map hidden as much as you can as they see that and think you're lost straight away. Don't give up with the bartering. If he says 20 Dinahs you say 2 and work it out from there. You'll see the prices come flying down esspecially if you start walking away. Whatever it is from a leather bag to a taxi start off with the attitude that you don't need it and you'll be alright ... even if you do need it. Last tip is that it should cost no more than 50 Dinahs to get to and from the airport. Best of Luck .. "
    The best thing about Riad Moucharabieh was:"Very quiet considering the Madness of Marrakech. Feels nice and safe, easy, welcoming ... "
    The worst thing about Riad Moucharabieh was: "Got a bit bored of the pancakes for breakfast everyday ... although they were quite nice the first time. "
