Riad is very well placed, being easy walking distance to all the sights but far enough from the centre to be peaceful - very neccesessary after a day in Marrakech. All the staff are friendly and helpful, and quick to sort out any problems/give advice. Mohammed's guidance on finding the way to and from the riad was essential!
The rooms are comfortable and breakfast on the roof terrace was most enjoyable. You do need to come to terms with curtains across the doorway during the day but this soon seemed quite natural. You are also reliant on quiet guests, as sound travels in the open courtyard very easily.
Unfortunately, the bath is only intended to be used as a shower tray and does not have a plug.
The rooms are quite gloomy (riad style) but bright bedside lights were thoughtfully provided.
Marrakech is frenzied and we spent too much time lost in the souks and alleys, as the tourist maps are totally inadequate. This is fun at first, but another time would buy a proper map from a map specialist before leaving UK.
There are many exceptional things to see in Marrakech, all in the guide books. A day in the Atlas mountains provides a good contrast with the town
