Riads in Marrakech like Riad Mehdi with four suites (including a duplex apartment-style chamber) and five standard double rooms, an extensive spa and hammam complex next door, and a good location just inside the Bab Agnaou gate, are an attractive proposition all round.
Riad Mehdi has the usual runs of smooth tadelakt walls, zellije tiling and bejmat floors are found throughout, although since it was built from scratch three years ago, a certain feeling of modernity creeps through the décor. Rooms aren’t as large as they could be but they are certainly adequate, and decorated unostentatiously with comfort and sensuality rather than hipness in mind. The outside courtyard backs onto the ancient Medina walls.
It’s a divine little hideaway with a regulated-temperature pool, a bar just inside the main doors and even a small dining area. If you want a holiday packed with relaxation, health and beauty then this could well be the right place for you.
