We didn't have any reservations for the one night we were in Marrakech, but luckily we stumbled upon Riad Ain. The building's interior was gorgeous and our rooms had a very fancy Moroccan vibe. The riad is located about 15 minutes from Jemaa el Fna (the main square), which is perfect because it was close enough to all the action, yet the area was very peaceful and quiet (and safe!). Another reviewer noted this already, but indeed the google maps location is incorrect (it's actually close to the hospital, SW of Jemaa el Fna).
I'm pretty sure we were the only guests, but the staff didn't skimp out on anything. They offered us tea and snacks when we arrived. In the evening, they prepared the hot tub (it's located on the roof terrace and has a sky light!), set some music and offered us scotch (produced in France by the riad's owner). The following day, we had our breakfast (included and delicious--traditional Moroccan spread of breads, jams, honey, cheese, orange juice and coffee) on the roof terrace again. Even though check out was at noon, they let us use the room till almost midnight (our flight wasn't leaving till after 3am). We took advantage of that and arranged for a hammam and a relaxing massage (hotel offers both)--so amazing.
One con was that the wifi was available mainly in the lobby / ground floor (we were on the first floor and the signal was barely available outside the room).
The staff was always very friendly and helpful. Overall, it has been a wonderful experience and we'd definitely recommend Riad Ain!
