One of the best value deals you probably get in Marrakech. This riad is very hard to find on yourself. However, that does reflect the charm of the medina of Marrakech. It is located in an interesting, bustling part of the medina, away from the tourist trapping and hazzling people ("Square? Square! This way! - pointing the wrong direction). The location is authentic, staff very friendly and helpfull. When you're in Marrakech it is an oasis of rest and charm, including its roof top terrace and spacious rooms. And even the square (if you're interested) is in walking distance, as is - for example - the Jardin Majorelle in the new town.
The only downside I can think of in this riad is that you can easily hear the noise coming from other rooms (or people in different rooms communicating through the atrium). Unfortunately I got sick one of the four nights we stayed here. I can imagine I have woken up some of the other guests at least three times that night...
One night we decided to skip the crowds and have dinner in the riad itself (possible if you make the reservation earlier that day). Surprisingly, the meal was one of the best we had in Morocco! It was served - like the breakfast - in a living room like area of the riad which made us actually feel special guests with private service. :-)
Alltogether I would definately recommended this place to any couple seeking a comfortable and calm retreat in the middle of the medina.
