My friend and I stayed at this riad for 5 day in February. First of all have to really thank Yassine for making everything so easy for us. We decided to book the transfers to and from the riad and this made things very easy. Yassine met us at the taxi and showed us the landmarks we would need later to navigate our way back home! Very useful! Then we got there we were offered a drink and Yassine took the time to get to know what our plans were. He offered to help us with anything we needed and in fact we did book 1 excursion into the mountains through the riad. However because of this attention we ended up feeling slightly guilty when we sorted our own hammam treatment! The room was great with comfy beds and a fab shower and I was pleasantly surprised that it was bigger than we were expecting. Only one issue was that you could hear the noises from the courtyard at night and in the morning - some of the trips leave early so guests can order early breakfast. Breakfast was great for us, loved the cake and the generous glasses of freshly squeezed orange juice! We were late risers so sometimes hot water for tea was cool, but there was no problem in getting new hot water when we asked. Brilliant location, 10mins walk from the square but very quite and extremely atmospheric. There may be some issues as highlighted however the riad is priced appropriately. I would definitely come back if we were in Marrakech again.
One thing to remember at this time of year is it is cold in the mornings and evenings, so bring layers! We found the people in Marrakech very welcoming, yes people want to sell things and make a buck out of you, but if you are genuine and polite if you are not interested, people do take the time to chat and you get to know a lot more about what lies behind this amazing, colourful culture!!
