The service at the riad is excellent. The staff is always around if you need anything. The 6 rooms are all big as I was able to visit all of them. Even if there are no keys to lock the rooms, I felt pretty safe that there wont be anything lost while I am away. You can use the handle bar that closes the door.
Bedrooms are clean and bright and the bathrooms are luxurious. The decoration is very minimalist and a little contemporary Moroccan style with niches and colored tiles on some rooms.
In the middle of the courtyard is mainly a wading pool. It was too cold to swim in it in April, but I bet it would be nice to soak on it on a hot day after a day out.
Complimentary Wifi is availble on the ground floor and strongest spot if you stay near the office.
Breakfast is adequate - eggs ( the way you like them), jams, coffee or tea, bread and Moroccan pancakes.
Although they advertise massage in their spa, I was not able to see the spa area.
Location is great. It is only about a 100 meters or less to the main pedestrian way leading to the Jemaa El-Fnaa main square of Marrakech where everything is happening - from the snake charmers to the soukh entrances to the evening restaurants serving traditional Moroccon dishes. Lighting on the streets from the riad to the main pedestrian is bright so no dark alleyways to worry about.
