The man owner of the Riad tried to cheat us just inmediately after arrival. They gave us an invoice with a different price from our reservation in hostelbookers.com saying that the moroccian currency (dirhams) rates were different from the day of our reservation. Also he added 50€ for a kind of weird Marrakech security tax and also forced us to pay again the 10% that we already paid through hostelbookers.com. After 15 minutes arguing with the owner he finally removed all those extra fees. We noticed later on that other travellers that didn't complain were cheated by the owner and paid the extra fees.
Also we didn't like the hammam. It was said to be "au feux de bois" but it was false because the one heated by wood was a different room so old that they don't use it anymore. Finally we decided to go to a different hammam, because Marrakech is full of them and there are definitely much better and beautiful hammams than the one from le couleurs d'lorient.
Bathrooms were also very bad, showers broken during the week we stayed in the riad :(
