Perfect place to stay to visit Marrakech.
The Riad only has 5 rooms however this ensures a personal touch.
Staff are very helpful and friendly. Breakfast is fantastic (especially the coffee!).
All the sights are within walking distance of the riad.The Riad is a 20 minute walk to the Djemaa el Fna square therefore away from the hustle and bustle of the Medina. The rooftop terrace is very peaceful and quiet.
Mustafa (the manager) recommended several restaurants - all of them were fantastic
Definitely recommend that you arrange for a pickup from the airport - it would have been impossible to find down the little streets especially as we arrived at night (street names are not commonplace throughout the whole of Marrakech!)
Excursions are offered through the riad but we found them expensive compared to those offered around the Djemaa el Fna square (we took daytrips to Ourika valley and Ouzoud waterfall with Safari Excursions who were very good). Admittedly the riad excursions are with your own personal tour guide and minibus and the outside ones are in larger groups so it depends really what you are looking for.
Overall, we were very happy with our stay here and would recommend it to anyone who wants a clean, comfortable and quiet place to stay to explore Marrakech.
