I arranged an airport transfer and the driver was waiting to collect me. He drove as close as he could to the Riad and then got someone to come and collect me - there is no way I would have found it otherwise!
The young man working there was friendly and even though I do not speak French and he didn't speak English we got by. The Riad appeared quite large so I think that there were several rooms. I was on the second floor near the dining area. My room was nicely decorated and very clean. The shower was powerful, but as I have always found in Riads there was not any hot water (usually unless you ask them to put the heater on). The bed was comfortable, the air conditioning worked.
As well as the bed there was a seating area. There was limited hanging space for clothes with a couple of coat hangers. Although I arrived late, only stayed one night and left after breakfast the next morning it did appear very quiet, despite how close it is to Jemaa el-Fnaa.
It possibly had the most basic breakfast in all the places that I have stayed in Morocco but for the price of the Riad I wouldn't expect more (orange juice, bread, a very small pancake, coffee, spread cheese and honey). When I come back to Marrakech I will definitely use this Riad again. I would have liked to have had more time to look round the riad. If someone wants a reasonably priced riad, with en-suite bathroom and good location I would recommend this one.
