The wife and I visited Marrakech for my 30th birthday in Nov 2009 and we spent one night in this riad for the experience. We initially stayed at the Ibis Moussafir and we were very glad we stayed at least one night here - in hindsight I wish I had not bothered with the Ibis.
The staff here were very welcoming and accomodating. The owner is a French expat who was helpful in introducing us to the local area and reccomended sites to visit. We did feel he was a bit pushy at trying to sell his services e.g. Moroccon meal at the riad @ £25 per head etc.
The riad will generally arrange a transfer from and to the airport. I don't recommend getting a taxi here and most taxi drivers will not know where this riad is.
Overall a great experience and would return again!
