Splendid riad, ideal for a romantic week-end. Our marks:
A+ for the tasteful + classy/sophisticated decor; the service; the sense of being somehow out of space and time (it was tempting to just stay in and do nothing all day).
B for location: although it is only 5 minutes walking to the nearest taxi drop off point, the way to the riad is a bit of a mess: you need to pay attention not to get lost. Also, it is a good 15 minutes to the main square.
C for value: I know many hip riads in Marrakech come with a high price tag and this is actually presented as a well priced one, but I felt overall that for 4-5* hotel rates we got service and facilities of a (though) beautiful B&B. Also, the dinner in the riad – though pretty good – was pricey compared to several other dining options in the area. I would recommend eating elsewhere with the same budget.
F to the decorator who thought that no window shades and thin curtains are a great stylistic choice, not thinking that most people on this planet find it easier to sleep in the dark and do not appreciate to be woken up at sunrise by blinding lights, especially on holidays!
Overall, a beautiful, peaceful, place with lots of atmosphere but not necessarily the best value for money you can get.
