This Riad is a little gem and the staff are amazing.
The Riad only has 8 rooms so feels intimate and cosy, but is spacious enough with the courtyard, roof terrace and dining/lounge area not to feel claustrophobic.
The rooms are decorated beautifully and plenty of hot water. Breakfast is bread, jam and honey along with croissants, pastries and pancakes (varies on a day to day basis) along with juice, tea/coffee and yoghurt.
The Riad is Around a ten to fifteen minute walk to the square and souks. It's a straight forward walk, although the first time you do it, it may be a shock to the system with the hustle and bustle if you haven't been to somewhere like Marrakech before. We were two females and it is very safe to walk, although taxis are really easy to find and very cheap.
It is probably worth booking a taxi in advance (can be done through the Riad) to collect you from the airport. Like a lot of the Riads they are tucked away and arranging something in advance will certainly prevent you or your taxi driver getting lost!
The staff provide maps etc on arrival and went out of there way to explain where everything was. This was one of the best things about this place, the staff. They were very helpful, friendly and went out of their way to make us feel welcome.
Not only would I recommend this place, but if I went back to Marrakech I would have no hesitation on staying here again.
