Because I live in Paris, I go to Marrakesh regularly on holiday. I must have stayed at a half-dozen riads in the Medina. Riad Chraibi offers, by far, the best value for the money.
The location is great: it's in the best part of the Medina, just off the happening Rue Mouassine and two steps from one of the coolest shops/galleries in the city, Il Ministero del Gusto. It's also only about 4 minutes' walk from the main square, Djemma El Fna.
The riad itself is simple but clean and cozy, and Audrey is a very cool and laid-back hostess. The free breakfast--Berber pancakes, orange juice, coffee--on the roof terrace is sublime in the morning.
I now stay here every time I'm in town and recommend it to my friends.
