We chose this riad based on previous reviews and were not disappointed. We contacted them directly to take advantage of their 'pot pourri' special offer of a guided tour of Marrakech, a cookery lesson and a hammam. We were very pleased with all aspects of the riad but especially the friendliness of the staff. Nothing was too much bother. We'd booked a suite which was beautifully decorated and had fresh rose petals on the bed every day; a lovely touch. Although it is located in the centre of the Kasbah area of the Medina, it was very quiet inside the riad complex and peaceful. You do need to be careful on the road outside with carts, bikes, scooters etc but that is largely the case everywhere in Marrakech. It took us 15 minutes to walk to the main square and there are ATMs and a bureau de change on the way.
The only thing we'd change would be the option of feather pillows as we found the pillows too hard for our liking. We usually take our own but this was not possible with only travelling with hand luggage. However that is a minor point.
Definitely one to return to for a relaxing break.
