This Riad really gves you the authentic experience. Tucked away in the northern end of the Souks it is an oasis of calm in the chaotic but fascinating world beyond. As others have said you really need to know how exactly you are going to get to it initially as a) its not obvious and b) few maps cover the full detail required to be able to navigate confidently in the Souks, especially at night. The staff really were first class; both in terms of the general level of service but also the help, advice and orientation they were able to provide, especialy for a first time visiter to Marrakech. For example they were willing to show you the best way into the Souks by day and the best ways back by night.
Whilst its clear from reading some of the other reviews some people have an unrealistic view of what a Morrocan Riad is and has to offer, i.e its not a North American or European Marriot, Hilton etc but that said it clearly isn't 4 star by any stretch of the imagination. The architecture and layout of the building is superb but there are just too many things that need fixing, replacing or even repainting to really do it the justice it deserves, However if you go in with open eyes and an open mind you will not be disappointed.
Location wise its about a 10/15 minute walk to teh main square but thats no bad thing and its a very very interetsing walk both by day and night.
