Stayed here for a week long visit with my daughter. Arrived quite late and were pleasantly greated by Hamza who gets numerous mentions and for all the right reasons. The rooms are pleasant and well looked after. Florence and Bridget were very accommodating as we had a night flight home so they provided us with shower facilities, much needed in the heat of Marrakech. This riad is in an ideal location for the sqaure (5/10 minutes walking) Badii and Bahia Palaces and the Salaadian tombs (all 5 minutes walking). The riad and Hamza can arrange trips, guides or anything you need. We did a two day visit to Zagora with a night under canvas in the desert, it's hot even at night!! but very worthwhile thoguh a long 2 days.
It didn't get the full 5 but purely as the pool pump broke on day 5 of our stay which meant the pool water was a murky and no real sign of it being fixed, that said the water is refeshingly cool after a days sightseeing and none of us minded too much.
Can recommend the Kasbah cafe (by the tombs) and Souk cafe (a little harder to find and about 20 minutes walk) for eveing meals.
We would without doubt stay here again.It's the real Marrakech experience in a beautifully appointed riad not the faceless chain hotels. All the staff are really friendly, one of the housekeeping staff even waved and spoke to us in the street.
