When me and my friend booked a cheap holiday, and booked Riad Amssaffah I read the reviews and honestly thought what the hell have I let myself in for.
However, this was a cheap place to stay so was expecting the worst.

Caution - Horrible! Do Not Book!!!
First of all we came and were waiting for 4 hours, after they told us that we need to go to other hotel, no one explain where we need to go or what to do. :(
After we came...More
When we booked that riad we were very happy, the price was great and the localization seemed perfect as well. In fact they have a place full of potential, the saloons, balconies, the terrace are very wide and cool to chill. However there was something...More
Here we go. I only give this a star because it lets me leave a comment but does not deserve it - READ WITH CAUTION (all what i say is not exagarrated) 1) when we booked in advance they did not have our room ready...More

It's right in the middle of lots of little alleys and I defy anyone to try to find it straight away. The best thing to do is to get a cab from the airport. When you walk out of the airport, cross the road and walk through to the end of the car park (you'll be approached by lots of cab drivers on the way just tell them you have a cab already). At the end of the car park there'll be lots of cab drivers, they'll approach you and tell them you want to go to Riad Amassafah. They'll tell you 200 D but offer them 60. They'll laugh, but keep walking until you get them to agree 80 - 100. Stand you ground - it'll be a bit unnerving, but that's part of the experience and we got one for 80. They guy said he'd drop us 100m away, but we chatted to him in French during our journey and he drove us straight there. We gave him 100 D in the end. I read somewhere that there is a little fountain down the road from the rid, but it's more a water tap in the street. Stand with that on your right, look up the road and go through the first arch you see. The riad is the door on your right. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did - it is real Mrrakech.
BTW: there is a bureau d'exchange on the walk to the main square from the riad and it's commission-free. Last month, I got nearly 14 D for £1, which was about 4D more that I got at Gatwick airport. Eliza will help you find it. All the best, Joanna
