We stayed at the riad for three nights, paying £19 for a double room including breakfast. The riad is located is the Jewish mellah area of Marrakech, around a 15 minute walk to Djamaa El Fna square but close to the royal palaces. The riad is quite difficult to find so I’d recommend organising transport with them if you arrive at night or asking them for directions, we relied on help from local kids which got us there in the end (for a price :-)!). The quieter location means that you're away from the chaos of the square and souks but I found the walk home late at night a bit daunting for the first few nights as it’s quite easy to get lost.
The room was basic with en-suite wet room and air con, but good value especially in Marrakech. There’s an attractive courtyard to relax in where they serve a basic Moroccan breakfast. We were allocated a ground floor room off the courtyard which didn't feel very private and some nights were noisy when other guests came home so if I stayed again I’d request a room on a higher floor. The riad isn’t staffed at all times which wasn’t a massive problem for us, but may bother other guests who have a problem or need directions etc. as visiting Marrakesh for the first time can be overwhelming.
