On arriving at this hidden-away Riad in the middle of the Medina, I faced a bit of a culture shock. It was unlike any hotel you'd find in England. In hindsight, I was only surprised because it rained the day we arrived. However, there is a very friendly and helpful staff working in the Riad. They're willing to give you advice on everything from where to go (including hand-drawn maps), where to eat, and even how to deal with the locals.
We stayed in a twin room, which was relatively plain and simple, but did its job. There were 2 beds, a television (which we didn't use), a wardrobe, a lamp, a fridge, and a sizeable bathroom. The only complaints we had were that the bathroom door didn't close, and had to be propped closed with a waterbottle. We're not a fussy pair though, so this didn't faze us. We both slept very well, apart from the prayer call from the nearby Mosques every morning. This, however, is unavoidable no matter where you stay in Marrakech.
Breakfast was a lovely meal. With fresh bread each day, coffee and milk, freshly squeezed orange juice, and a something hot - which varied from pancakes to cooked eggs each day - we had a lovely morning, each morning.
The general consensus is that you won't be dropped off right outside of the Riad because of it's positioning in the Souqs. However, on our way there, we were guided by our representative, and on the way back Mohammed (the bell boy) was kind enough to guide us back to where we would be dropped off. He even carried all of our luggage for us.
Overall this Riad is a wonderful place to stay, with only small instances of complaint.
