There are hundreds of Riads to choose from in Marrakech, but we were travelling the country by car, and so needed one near the medina, but where we could also park, and so chose this, as it has excellent reviews.
It is a very pleasant Riad, very nicely decorated and run, with a cool central courtyard, a pleasant roof terrace, and jacuzzi (which worked!) on the roof. Compared to the Riad we stayed in at Fez, this one was much more architecturally and artistically simple, but still a very good place to stay. The room was big, and all rooms are highly individual, around the central courtyard on two floors.
It is about a 10 minute walk into the medina, and then about a further 20 minutes to the main square (Djemaa el Fna), through what appears to be a dirty and posibly dodgy area behind the city walls. However, we always felt safe here, there are always people on the street, and we had no problems walking back at night to the hotel, which has some small shops nearby for basic supplies.
A good base for exploring the medina, if you want to stay outside the old town.
