The only reason not giving it the complete 5 is because they do not have a website and no good directions to find it. We spent 2.5 hours with ridiculous directions we pulled together ourselves which absolutely none of the landmarks we had listed were real or current. We ended up having the local police show us the location. We were to the point of giving up and booking at one of the others along the way. We met a girl who was staying at a hostel in the same alley and her hostel gave perfect directions (for Marrakesh).
Super glad we didn't give up.
The location (once you can find it) is fantastic. The Riad is charming, clean, large rooms, friendly staff, great rooftop, good wifi, amazing price, safe. We read some reviews about the challenge of the staff not speaking English but the staff was so helpful and very kind.
We were also wondering because the price was an amazing deal - if it was too good to be true - but it wasn't. The Riad has character, allows you to be independent, clean and seriously great location.
The wifi - we had to go out in the hall to connect and then had good wifi in our room and rooftop the rest of the time.
AC worked very well too.
For those complaining that there was no shower curtain - the shower doesn't need one. It is large open shower area and doesn't get everything wet.
They have daily cleaning as well which was nice.
Our favorite was the rooftop. They have a great view from up there. I know people have posted bad reviews about the pool. It's not a pool to swim laps in but after a hot day - it was refreshing to put our toes in to cool off and lounge in the chairs provided. We even had a few happy hours up there.
All in all, we absolutely would stay here again and would recommend it to our friends. We just hope they put together a small map to show where the Riad is located.
