What’s the most important thing you look for in an accommodation?
Usually, I’m a very easy traveller. As long as I have a decent place to stay, I don’t really care how many stars it has and if I get a pillow menu. What qualifies as decent in my opinion? A place that is clean, has a comfortable bed (especially if we are staying there for the whole week) and is in a good location. I can deal with “not so friendly staff” here and there as other three things are more important to me. Especially, if we are under a strict budget and I’m not keen on spending more to get a 5 star service. •
Thankfully, during our stay in Marrakech, we had all of those things - clean rooms, an incredibly comfortable bed, welcoming staff and delicious breakfast right in the heart of Medina. It was also a fantastic value for money as we didn’t want to spend a lot on our riad but we wanted a cosy and beautiful place to stay at. I know there are a lot of ‘Instagram famous’ riads in Marrakesh that charge you crazy amount of money. If that’s your cup of tea - that’s fine.
