“Peace and tranquility”
During my many visits to Marrakech, I have found it difficult to find a conveniently located, traditional style riad at the lower end of the price range which I have actually enjoyed staying in. Riad Ariha however, ticks all the right boxes. It is beautifully decorated in a wonderfully calming palette of white and greys and with prices starting from just £58 per night, it is surprisingly affordable. Only small negative is that it is a bit further from the hustle and bustle of the main square and souks than you might hope. It is about a 15 minute walk but the other positives far outstrip this small negative. By the time you have been served a delicious breakfast in the little inner courtyard and whiled away the hours on the roof terrace star gazing, it becomes very difficult to leave.
