We stayed here two nights on our visit to Marrakech. The guys who run Fatouma may be the friendliest in the city.
When our train arrived, we called Fatouma and they were able to speak to our taxi so we were dropped off in exactly the right spot. One of the Fatouma staff members met us at the gate and helped us carry our bags for the short walk to the raid.
The interior is authentic Morocco and we were welcomed with smiles and some wonderful mint tea.
Our room was right off the main common area - which made us concerned for light and noise but, I have to say, the riad and other guests were quiet and the lights were turned off at night so our room was peaceful and dark for sleeping.
The room was clean, the shower was nice and always had hot water. (And the towels were awesome!). Although it's never a requirement for us, the TV in the room was nice to have as well and we definitely made use of the air con unit.
Each morning we were fed a really tasty complimentary breakfast. (traditional Moroccan).
We had the riad do our laundry and it was returned to us the same day, smelling wonderful and neatly folded (they washed our clothes at a reasonable price too!).
We loved our stay here but if I had to choose any areas to be improved, non-transparent drapes on the windows inside our room would have been nice and, although it may have been an oversight, the bathroom did not have any toilet paper (we never asked for any though either since we always travel with our own anyway).
As far as the location goes, we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. You can get to the main square in about 10 minutes and the lanes leading to the raid were clean and safe.
Definitely would recommend Riad Fatouma if you want a great stay at a fair price!
