It is incredibly difficult to find first time. Leave main square in top right hand corner just after cafe de france. It looks like you are heading down a back street with a covered route, but don't worry it is the right way and it is safe, (if you are good at dodging mopeds!). Walk straight on for about 5 mins or 200m. You will see a reddy brown Partisserie on the right, just before that on the left is what looks like an alley through a covered open gateway. Again, don't worry, despite the cats and the resting locals it is the right way and it is safe. The Riad is down the second alley on the left, just after the roof covering ends. The door is the first on the right about 10 m down with a nice big door, but only a very small sign. Once inside it is a Very, Very pleasant place to be, a bit like being in a smart Roman Villa and the staff are quite delightful. We took the 'suite' on the top floor which added 30euros a night to the bill. It was a great place to be with an almost exclusive balcony area. The drains did smell a little bit, especially when coming back to he room in the evening and there was a big shock at 5:40am every morning when the local mosque sprang into very loud action. This was only very brief (5-10 mins depending on day) and eventually added to the charm and you will not avoid this wherever you stay. The terrace is a great place for taking tea and photographs of the local skyline. All of the bits of Marrakesh you will want to see are within easy reach and most things are close enough for you to return for a mid afternoon break and some extremely refreshing tea. Breakfasts were great and at a time of your choice and although we didn't have an evening meal at the Riad those guests who did said they were very good. Had debated doing an all inclusive outside the city and travelling in, but really glad we didn't and would highly recommend this Riad as a base. In fact Marrakesh in general is brilliant.
