Marrakech is busy, crowded and confusing at times, it takes a day or 2 to get used to the culture and finding way around the souks and streets but once you are in this Riad it is a different world and very quiet, from outside no one can imagine what this will be like inside and most people will be pleasently surprised, the public area and the room are decorated beautifully and the rooms are very spacious, clean and comfortable. we had breakfast both on terrace and in the courtyard, the breakfast was excellent and filling, we had riffa (moroccan flat bread), bread, jam, cheeze and butter and will freshly squeezed orange juice, hakima and others were very helpful. The riad is only around 4-5 minutes walk to main square jamaa al fana, the riad like many others is not easy to find so either you can use the riad service where they pick you up at train station or airport(at extra cost) or use the aiport shuttle(bus 19) or taxi to come to jamaa al fana and walk to the riad(use a hamaal(handy man) if you have luggage for around 30 dhs). I will try to help with direction. From the road where bus 19 drops(near Koutoubia mosque) you walk towards the square and take a left walking between the row of orange juice stalls(stall number 1 will be on your left side) towards cafe Argana, keeping walking in the street with cafe argana on your right and enter the street where you see a no entry sign, keep walking for around 100 meters and after the second twist in road look behind to look for a real estate sign and enter the alley with the sign on top of it, follow the narrow street(is very safe)and take the third right where at the end you will see sign for riad or wait nere the cafe and call the riad who may come to fetch you. If I visit marrakech again I will definately stay in this riad.
