I travelled here with my girlfriend at the end of August. We stayed here for three nights. I was very pleased with our choice. The staff were very helpful even before our arrival and had communicated well via email in response to our questions. An airport transfer was included in the price, which was great and breakfast was also included. Room was t the very top of the Riad and was perfect. Great AC, very quiet and just a hop across the roof to get to the terrace for breakfast in the morning. I saw a recent review saying this is not close to the Medina but I do not understand this as it is less than 10 mins walk away from Jemaa el Fna.
Staff were extremely helpful and Mohammed looked after us from the minute we arrived. He drew us a map showing us how to manage the crazy winding streets, recommended good places to eat, warned us of the pitfalls of Marrakech, lent us some money to pay off the locals should we need to, lent us his guide book, organised taxis, tours etc. etc. Everytime we came back from somewhere he enquired as to how it was and was anxious that we were ok. Himself and Paolo also went and got our bus tickets to Essouira while we were off on a tour and did so without requiring money upfront. Very helpful.
All in all, I would highly recommend this Riad to anyone. We really enjoyed our stay and was a good start to our trip around Morocco.
