Riad Cinnamon is a Merchants house the restoration of which required the input of dozens of traditional craftsmen. Peek through the hand crafted window grilles to catch a glimpse of the private Riad courtyard.
Marrakech Riads are the ideal place to stay when you come to explore the old town.
Start in a Caravanserai ( a camel motel!) recently restored using UNESCO funding (Marrakech is a UNESCO world heritage site), pass by the local bakery (sample fresh bread if you wish), walk on into the souks, see the clever slatted roof above (Berber air conditioning!), pass the slipper sellers, see crafts men at work making musical instruments, peep in the shops selling expert lemon wood marketry, and on to the dyers souk.
