Really enjoyed our stay here, and would certainly return. First impressions on arrival may be negative as it's really embedded in a maze of winding narrow streets and corridors and you have no idea what's hidden behind the huge wooden entrance door. You will need a taxi to find it if you've never been before. The staff, the decor and the atmosphere are enchanting so you quickly forget any negative reactions and let yourself slip into Marrakech mode. That is to say provided you're not against walking or strolling in the Medina as it's a bit far from the famous Place Jemma el Fna, and you'll certainly get lost in the souks whilst finding your way around. There are two solutions if this poses a problem for you, or three if you count just staying put and enjoying the riad, its shadey courtyard, roof terrace, pool, hammam, and restaurant. The first is to take a guide for the first day (supplied by the riad) or to take a taxi from the nearby market square. We enjoyed getting lost (despite our detailed map) and then finding our landmarks for future excursions. We personally found the restaurant expensive for Marrakech and would advise taking a suite rather than a standard room. Having said that the standard room we had first was on two levels with bedding for three so could have been interesting for people looking for that kind of accommodation. The staff kindly upgraded us to a suite which was infinitely more spacious and corresponded to the pictures seen in the brochure and on the internet sites.
