There are quite a lot of things to like about this little place. The staff were certainly high on my list of 'likes' - friendly and helpful, without airs and graces. However, communicating was sometimes a little slow, since their English and my French were both on the ropey side!
There's a great little hammam, which we enjoyed and the roof terrace was a wonderful place to have breakfast, which was hearty and tasty. We were only there for one night, so didn't really get the hang of how you were supposed to book breakfast but going downstairs and enquiring seemed to produce the results.
I also loved the position of this riad. You felt that you were in hidden in a little oasis amongst the bustle of Marrakech, a few streets away. Knocking on the large wooden door in the quiet backstreet and waiting to be let in was a bit of a 'childhood fantasy' experience!
I didn't think that the decor or our room were quite so successful though. It was all a bit of a mishmash - a bit of art deco here, a bit of Philippe Starck there ... and some 1970s glass and leopard skin chucked in for good measure. The decor was also a bit tatty in places.
We were in the Kennedy Suite, which was quite dark, had very little in the way of storage space and a very odd bathroom in which the only way to shower was to squat.
