We decided on this Riad after extensive research (there are hundreds of Riad's to chose from!), we were definitely not disappointed!.
Firstly if you do book this Riad I would recommend you arrange for them to pick you up from the airport (this cost us 15 euros). We were collected by Mohammed who spoke perfect English and was very friendly. On arrival (after about a 15 min drive from the airport) who were welcomed by Rashid with fresh mint tea and a selection of Moroccan sweets. He provided a map and recommended a number of sights to visit and let us know how to get there (most things are walking distance in the old town).
We chose to stay in the Grand Suite Amel, and it was a great decision! The room is huge with separate living room and bedroom. The bedroom has a huge four poster bed and the living room has a corner sofa and working fire place. The room felt very homely and is decorated very traditionally. The bathroom is also huge!
We had dinner there the first night and be warned the portions are huge! We also had breakfast there everyday which consisted of breads, fruit, yoghurts and traditional Moroccan bread. We had our breakfast on the roof terrace on our final day which I would definitely recommend!
The Riad is in a great location, about a 10 minute easy walk from the main square (Jemaa El-Fna) and Souks. Even though located in a dark alley way it always felt completely safe day or night.
My only tip would be to bring ear plugs to avoid being woken up at 5am by the Mosque's nearby call to prayer.
The staff at this Riad really made our trip special, especially Rashid who was on hand to build our fires, make our breakfast, book restaurants, taxis and excursions for us! Many thinks to you!
