Riad Argan is in the perfect location for visiting Marrakech. It's within the medina walls but not too close to the main square that you feel it's too central. It's situated just off one of the main routes into the medina which is perfect as you get as much of the hustle and bustle as you want, it in a really peaceful location and the rooftop terrace is perfect for sitting down to breakfast, laying out in the sun or a late afternoon mint tea!
Francois and Bernard are the perfect hosts and I would recommend using their airport transfer service as we got out of the car just outside of the medina walls to a warm greeting from them and with someone to carry our bags to the road while we had a mini tour from Francois en-route to the riad. Once we'd arrived Francois offered to take us into the square and point out some key highlights such as the best food stalls to visit and she offered great tips on bargaining and what would be a fair price for all of the souvenirs you may want to pick up on your visit.
The rooms were great, each individually decorated but with a Moroccan theme, the rooms were comfortable (best few nights sleep I've had in a while) and also very clean.
The staff within the riad are also a credit to the efficiency and general pleasant atmosphere.
I would recommend the riad to couples, friends and families alike.
As a female traveller in a very different cultural environment I felt completely safe and this was in part due to Francois and her team and the location of the riad and also the advice they offered which was priceless!
If you want to try something a little different Francois can help organise a day trip to the Atlas Mountains which had its fair share of sales pitches along the way but it also offered great insight into mountain life and the beauty of morocco.
