We booked this riad based on the strength of it's reviews and were not disappointed. The riad is beautiful, with rooms set around a courtyard and was a relaxing retreat after the heat and bustle of the Medina. We were made to feel incredibly welcome by everyone there who couldn't have done more to help us enjoy our stay - even offering mint tea and biscuits whenever we came back from the town.
The breakfasts in the riad were delicious and there was no shortage of food - fruit salad, egg, pancakes (sort of), cake and of course mint tea served upstairs on the terrace. We also had dinner a few times and they were better than any dinner we ate outside the riad!
The room was very comfortable (we stayed in "Alil") with air conditioning and a seating area although we tended to sit outside on the terrace as the weather was so nice.
The riad is located right on the edge of the Medina and is about a 10-15 minute walk to the central square which means it is away from the noise of the centre. Walking back at night was never an issue as the route is well lit and there were always plenty of people about on the streets
We cannot recommend this riad highly enough and would definitely stay here again if we return to Marrakesh
