This was a wonderful place to stay for four nights: a welcome oasis from the pollution and bustle of Marrakech, and just a short, 5 minute walk from the main square.
The room was decent size and, like the rest of the riad, beautifully decorated. The food was really top-notch, the best we had during a week in the city. Sure, it's more pricey than eating at one of Jemaa el-Fnaa's many stalls, but It really wouldn't be out of place in an much more expensive restaurant. Plus, they serve alcohol, which is a big bonus in Marrakech!
On top of all these other positives, it's the service that makes this riad so special. Francoise was always friendly and helpful when around, but she wisely puts her trust in Sofiene and the three sisters who take care of the day-to-day running and make your stay such a warm, personal experience. Always willing to help, always friendly and very hard working.
We even had the pleasure of wathcing one sister perform Berber dancing on our final night.
If I was ever to return to Morocco, I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
