The location of this hotel is perfect for a stay in Marrakesh as it is minutes from the main square. The riad is beautifully restored and is an oasis in the busy Medina. Ask for a room on the second floor as being near the restaurant could be noisy. The staff are really friendly and helpful.
The restaurant is upmarket and very nice. They have a cheaper deal for hotel guests. They don't start serving until around 7:30pm. There are lots of restaurants close by to eat at too.
We stayed in the Emir room and it was fairly small but fine for us. It was very quiet. The bathroom was actually quite large with a bath and shower over bath, but no holder for the shower head so you had to hold onto it the whole time, which was annoying. Also, the shower pressure was weak and the temperature would go hot and cold.
The wifi was very slow and didn't work for about half the time we tried to use it.
As with most riad accommodation, you can't be driven right to the riad because of all the narrow alleyways. I recommend booking an airport transfer through the hotel as it will drop you at the square and someone from the hotel will meet you there to show you to the hotel. Otherwise it would be confusing to find when you first arrive.
Overall, this is a beautiful riad with lovely staff. I would love to give it 5 stars, but I have given it 4 because of the shower temperature and pressure and the poor wifi. I would definitely stay here again though.
