Situatted only 2 turns from the main chaotic square in Marrakech, this is a very well situated Riad. My excellent rating is based on the friendliness of Aziz and Monique, the great air conditioning and the how clean the place was.
We spent 3 nights here, during the hottest possible days (45-50 deg C), and had a great air conditioned room to stay in (rm 5 - the suite I believe). At that point my wife wasn't digging Moroccan food (I wasn't either), and the Riad was nice enough to make us some meals that were not a tangine or kafta - and were delicious as well. We were the only ones there 2 of the nights in the whole Riad, largely because it's a relatively new place, so word of mouth hadn't travelled too fast. Breakfast here was great, and had more food than we could possibly eat. Everything that we at here (3 breakfasts / 3 dinners) were great.
Worth mentioning for English speaking travelers, Aziz is the only one who is fluent english speaker (he's there on the night shift - likely when you'd be there), so you might need a bit of french to communicate with the other staff and owners.
Another item is that our room didn't have a TV. Usually not a big deal when traveling, but when it's 50 degrees you stay in, and didn't have much to do unless we stayed in the communal area which had only 1 TV. One weird / awkard thing about sharing a TV, is do you ask the owners / hosts if you can watch TV if they are. They have free Wifi, but the we couldn't get great reception out of the room, so we'd go down into the common areas. This would generally not be an issue, but with the outside temperature, us Canadian's hid in our ice cold room.
The rooftop jaccuzi was being fixed while we were there, which would have been a nice to have, but given the heat, no big deal.
So overall a very nice place to stay, and on a quiet street right in the action. Can't expect much more than this.
