Good, clean and inexpensive riad in the medina very close to El Fnaa, but in a quiet spot down a side street.
We had booked, well in advance, a twin room for two friends. On arrival they had only a double, but the bed was so enormous we had no trouble sharing it and even decided not to change rooms the next night to two singles.
Good bathroom and plenty of space for a night or two.
Great view from roof terrace. Nobody else was ever there - perhaps as no service up there unless you order your drink from several floors below.
Clean, basic place with helpful staff. Italian owned. Federika very helpful.
Breakfast plentiful with fresh fruit (but no fresh orange juice - why, when oranges are so good in Morocco? A crime not to serve the juice at breakfast!).
We were on ground floor and there was a bit of very early morning 6am staff chatter that echoed and was a bit disturbing. That, and the aroma of brewing coffee they were brewing, made it hard to get back to sleep.
Then, just a little later and as were we were right beside the breakfast area, it was hard to sleep when other people were having their breakfast and chatting just outside our door.
But really, all this is just a niggle.
Their booked taxi transfer from airport was reasonable enough but best to walk around the corner and get a taxi from the square outside the palace if you want to go anywhere else. They gave us a quote for taxi to Amizmiz which was 3 times the going rate. We guessed the guy just didn't want to do it, or else was just winging it and hoping...as a a lot of people selling you things in Marrakesh seem to do.
Good base in Marrakesh if you want something reasonable, clean, with helpful people in a great location.
I would definitely stay there again.
