The riad was beautifully presented with fantastic, friendly staff who ensured that we had everything we needed for our stay. Close to the souks, it was easy to walk in the medina and the instructions provided by the riad made it easy (or as easy as it can be in the souk!) to get back in the afternoons. The terrace was perfect to relax with a book in the afternoon/evening and watch the sun go down. The air conditioning in the room was perfectly adequate but don't expect European 5* accommodation - this is a fantastic piece of Morocco, and it's authenticity is what makes it special.
A perfect base for anyone who wants to explore all Marrakech has to offer.
I have seen complaints about cats and flies - you are never going to explore a city in a hot country without flies so take the necessary precautions and the cats were in no way intrusive but are to be expected as they climb across the rooftops of the riads.
