This place is very nice but it's not a 5-star hotel, and the price is absurd (especially for the cost of living in Morocco). I was only here for a short stay, so please take this review with a grain of salt. I thought the place was nice, but nothing out of this world. The building is beautiful, but the overall ambience was a bit sterile and more 'business-oriented' (as in they try to sell you overpriced guides, taxi-rides, lunches and dinners - just like all the touts do in the rest of the city) when compared to another Riad I visited in Marrakesh.
I was here for two short nights and one day. My room was interesting - very spacious and clean. It had an open bathroom and open shower. The terrace is fantastic, and you have an expansive view of mountains and rolling hills. The perfect place to start the day with a truly fantastic breakfast with all sorts of offerings, eggs, soups, breads, fruits. Really good!
Security was a bit of a concern... They leave the main door unlocked most of the day, and I had a problem with a fake guide who followed me and was later waiting for me at the foyer. He asked me to leave the entrance to the Riad open, saying that "he worked there." I told two of the managers about this, and they said they would make sure the door was secured and not to worry about anything. The door remained open throughout the time I was there.
You can also hear a lot of noise from the stairs early in the morning and late at night.
