Good points: beautiful spacious and super clean room, great four poster bed, good breakfast, 24/7 friendly porter.
Bad points: no map given, no information about marrakech provided, owner wasn't there to greet us- when we did meet him, he was mainly interested in when we're leaving and paying him. No other staff spoke english, so we virtually received no help at all. There is a 5% service charge when paying with debit/credit card- also tourist tax was 3EU per person per day (we weren't charged this in Agadir or Essauira, although it was mentioned before booking). Also- bathroom was NOT 4*. Shower was unpleasant, slightly broken and drained very slowly.
Overall, I liked the riad- its rooms and courtyards are beautiful- but the owner needs to improve his attitude towards clients- we overheard 2 very loud arguments with another 2 couples on seperate occasions (re: overcharging and food order mistakes).
However, I think that for the same price (we paid £32, excluding the high tourism tax, for a double room & breakfast) we would be able to find another 4* riad with a pool, hammam and an owner who actually shows care towards guests, not just their money!
