I've just come back from supporting some friends at the Marrakech Marathon. We stayed at the Riad El Wiam and we really enjoyed it.
It's quite difficult to find on your own - but any of the locals will show you where it is (and refuse a tip!).
The only point to watch was that the bank card machine seemed to only accept Debit cards, not Credit cards.
It's a little oasis of peace in the middle of hectic Marrakech. The rooms were nicely decorated (our female companion loved them) and the receptionist Naima looked after us very well - she even brought out carbohydrate dates (cf figs) for the runners. The other staff were also charming. It really added to the trip. I'll be back.
