I have just returned from a long weekend in Marakesh, staying at the Dar Marhaba. The riad is about a 15-20 min walk to the main square, but a taxi is only £1, so its no problem.
The riad itself was well presented, with comfortable rooms and plenty of ameneties that I hadn't expected (hairdryer, complementary soft drink minibar, complementary laptop & wi-fi in room).
The roof terrace had chairs, tables and sun loungers, although it proved a bit chilly in Jan to use them.
The best part of the riad was the staff. The hotel manager was always willing to give advice on visits, make bookings for us and give prices for taxis (very useful), but was not pushy and didn't try to sell us guided trips; and the 2 ladies that did the cooking and cleaning were friendly and very tolerant of our wanting late breakfasts every day, and carrying it up to the roof terrace!
All in all it was a pleasure to stay there.
