I will try to avoid repeating that already written.
What I most enjoyed about the Riad was the roof terrace with a brilliant view of Marrakech roof tops and the Atlas Mountains. The cacophony of the multitude of calls to prayer from the surrounding mosques is something to be experienced as the evening gathers.
Others wrote about the 'helpers' (not to do with the hotel) hustling your baggage up the alleyway to the Riad for a tip - to avoid this we had scouted the hotel location in advance and refused the 'assistance', but for newbies this is probably unavoidable due to the complexity of the alleyways. Have some coins ready is the general tip for getting by in Marrakech - but don't open your wallet !
The Riad has two very pretty courtyards (one with a swimming pool) - each of the bedrooms will open up onto one or other of these. French-Moroccan eclectic would be the terminology for the decor. Our meals were perfect (hostess coped with my sudden change of mind), and as the weather cooled in the night, the wood fire in the dining room was welcome. In the morning, my wife and her friend went shopping (the Medina is just up the alley). I walked the shortish distance to the peaceful Yves Saint Laurent memorial garden and the excellent Berber Museum.
This peaceful Riad is on our road map for a return visit.
