We stayed at this Riad for three days in March. Marrakesh is a magical place and so is this place. We arrived around 10 o'clock on a Saturday. They send someone out to get you near the city square as it would be virtually impossible to find on your own. Once we arrived in the Riad it was charming, small and we were welcomed with open arms. Our room was beautiful. There is not a lot of lighting and the electrical outlets are in need of repair. Nevertheless the experience of the room was so different. The staff went over the top when it comes to service. They made you feel safe, comfortable and directed you to outstanding restaurants and tourist adventures. The breakfasts they served in the morning on the terrace was extremely enjoyable and relaxing. They didn't have food available for supper. You had to reserve it and it was basically was being brought in. However, there are many many restaurants within easy walking distance. Each of the restaurants that we went to were absolutely magical and we will remember them forever. You get an excellent feeling of living in the old city by staying at this Riad.
