“Riad Chi Chi – the place to stay in Marrakech”
SophsM -Travelling with us since 2007
London, United Kingdom
Arriving at night in the middle of the souk was a disconcerting experience but any fears were immediately allayed on meeting Salah – manager and concierge of Riad Chi Chi – who led us through the rabbit warren of passageways to the calm oasis of the riad. The riad is simple, clean and elegant, comprising of 5 comfortable rooms with en suite bathrooms, all stocked with gorgeous organic, handmade soap and shampoo. The riad is perfect – neatly tucked away amidst all the action of the souk, near some fantastic restaurants and the best place to retreat to when it all gets a bit much. You can have spa treatments at the riad, relax on the rooftop and even have cooking lessons with a trip to the market to buy the ingredients you need. Salah is really the star of the show – he couldn’t be kinder and more patient. He’ll make restaurant bookings, appointments at the hammam and book day trips for you. Crucially, he’ll also make sure you are never lost – collecting you if you get stuck and making sure you get to where you’re going (you can even borrow a mobile belonging to the road to call him if needed). We had a fantastic time at Riad Chi Chi and I couldn’t recommend it more – I would happily return.
