The first thing you will realize about this Riad is the maze you will walk through to find the place, and of course you gonna need assistance from locals or call the Riad to send someone pick you up from the hotel, anyway take a cab to "bab Doukala" for around 40 DHM from the train station and 80 DHM from the airport and then he will drop you by the walking street and then you will pay someone from the local guides there around 20 DHM to take you there.
The location itself inside the the old Marrakech is great, Jama el fana is 10 mins away and If you want to go visit the new Marrakech its 5 mins away, and you are right in the heart of the old town.
Staff was very helpful and they will make your stay very comfortable, rooms are big and comfortable, but only curtains are dividing your room and the bathroom, and since the place is so quiet you can always here people peeing and talking, its like singing in open space, so if you are not used to riads or not ready for the experience don't risk it.
Breakfast from home made jam and other natural goods was great an filling.
the decor itself is beautiful and you gonna take photos of the place and the dinning hall, where the swimming pool is, which I didn't use because of the uncomfortable position right in the middle of the riad.
