We loved our stay at the Riad Assakina. Perfectly located within easy walking distance of almost everything one wants to see in Marrakech, and easy to arrange a taxi from if one wishes to go further afield. Our room on the first floor was comfortable and quiet. The courtyard is a lovely entrance space, sitting area and breakfast room. And the rooftop has lots of sitting and lounging areas, perfect for sunning oneself and/or having a drink - or, indeed, the wonderful food offerings that can be ordered for lunch or supper or dinner. Service is seriously good, and comes with such grace, friendliness and charm that one is tempted just to stay put and be waited on all day, rather than going out and exploring the city! Local advice was readily given and unfailingly accurate and helpful.
The only thing I can think of to mention by way of criticism is that the lighting in the bedroom could have been better for reading - there were no lamps in the sitting area. And the bedside lamps, while lovely, were so huge that there was practically no room on the bedside tables to put anything else. These are quibbles, but did niggle a bit at the time - probably because they were in contrast to everything else being perfect.
I strongly recommend the Riad Assakina whatever your reasons for going to Marrakech.
